14.30. Races

This tab is in the Debug tab.

Races are created automatically by ao Progressions. You can use this tab to view the races that have been set up for an Event, or to make manual changes to a record if the Progression did not set up the race properly.

14.30.1. Query and Edit Tabs

  • The ID field is the unique ID for this Race. The default ID prefix is R.

  • The Event field is the Event for this event.

  • The Stage field is the Stage for this race.

  • The Round field is the round number of this race within the Event. For example, if you have three Heats, two Semifinals, and on Final, the Round for all three of the Heats would be 1, the Round of both Semifinals would be 2, and the Round of the Final would be 3. Note that the Stage and the Round will not always pair up the same way for different Events. For example, if you have only one round which is a Final, the Round for that Final would be 1, since it is the first round, which is different from the previous example.

  • The Section field is the number of this race within its stage. For example, if you have three Heats, two Semifinals, and one Final, the Section for the three Heats would be 1, 2, and 3, the Semifinals would be numbered 1 and 2, and the Final would be numbered 1.

  • The Area field tells what Area will be used for this race.

  • The Race Number field is the number of this race. Races are typically numbered in starting-time sequence during Scheduling.

  • The Scheduled Start field tells when this race is scheduled to start. You should use the Schedule tab to fill in a value for this field.

  • The Scheduled Duration field tells how long to allot for this race in the schedule. You should use the Schedule tab to fill in a value for this field.

  • The Actual Start field records the time that the race actually started. You should use the Schedule tab to fill in a value for this field.

14.30.2. Sheet

The Sheet tab allows you to edit the information about multiple Races on one page, to simplify entering or editing a group of Races.

To edit a set of Races, press the "Search" button. A list of all Races will appear just below the button.

For more details on how to use the Sheet, see the section on Sheets.
