14.40. Simplans

This tab is in the Plan Setup tab.

The Simplans tab is used to define the plans used in simple progressions.

Simplans are defined in three tables: Simplans, SimplanStages, and SimplanRules.

The Simplans table defines the systems of plans. It contains one row for each plan within a system of plans. All plans in the same system share the same system name; each plan within a system is for a different number of entrants.

The SimplanStages table defines how many stages there are for a plan, and how many sections there are for each stage. Each row of the SimplanStages table represents one stage in one plan.

The SimplanRules table defines how finishers advance from one round to the next. Each row of the SimplanRules table relates a from-round and a to-round within one plan.
