14.19. Exceptions

This tab is in the Sport Setup tab.

The Exceptions tab is used to define the names used for the different exceptions used in events. These are reasons why an entrant did not finish an event. These entrants are not assigned finishing rankings in the event, and are typically disqualified from participating in further rounds.

14.19.1. Query and Edit Tabs

  • The ID field is the unique ID for this Exception. The default ID prefix is X

  • The Name field is the name of the exception. For exampled "Did not finish" or "Did not start".

  • The Short Name field is a short name for the exception. This is typically the initials of the long name, or an abbreviation. It should be small enough to fit into a results printout in place of the finishing time (or other measure). For example, "DNF" for "Did not finish"; "DNS" for "Did not start".

  • The Result Allowed/Required field specifies whether a result is allowed or required in a Lane containing this Exception, as follows:

    • 0 = result not allowed

    • 1 = result is allowed but not required

    • 2 = result is required
