14.37. Seeding Lists

This tab is in the Team Setup tab.

The Seeding Lists tab is used to set up seeding lists associated with a seeding plan. Each list is associated with one seeding plan.

See the section on Seeding Plans for more information about seeding plans.

14.37.1. Query and Edit Tabs

  • The ID field is the unique ID for this Seeding. The default ID is the seeding plan id, a dot, and the seeding rank.

  • The Seeding Plan field is the name of the seeding plan. This is the value specified in the Event record in order to use this seeding list when drawing lanes for that Event.

  • The Rank field controls the seeding order. Lower numbers are seeding first when drawing lanes, so they are assigned better lanes. If two seedings within the same list are specified with the same rank, they are order by the ID value of the seeding.

  • The Person field specifies the person to be seeded. Any people in the seeding list who are not entered into a seeded Event are ignored for that Event. If you want, you can set up one seeding list that ranks all of the entrants to your Meet and use that one seeding list for all Events.

14.37.2. Sheet

The Sheet tab allows you to edit the information about multiple seedings on one page, to simplify entering or editing a seeding list.

To edit a seeding list, select a value from the List Name choice, then press the "Search" button. A list of all Seeding Lists will appear just below the button.

All columns except for the first column (ID) can be edited.

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