Setup Single Categories for All Birth Years

Several categories include athletes of various birth years.  It is not necessary to create a separate category for every birth year.  For example, if you are setting up a category for JO4 and it includes birth years of 2001 to 2014, you don’t need to setup a separate category for each birth year.

There are usually a couple of reasons why meet administrators want to setup separate categories by birth year.

  • to group athletes together by birth year in session groups
  • for award categories

SportzSoft LiveMeet allows you to setup a single category and then sub divide the athletes in the category for the two purposes above.

The method used most frequently is to setup ‘partitions’ within a category, and then use these partitions to assign athletes to a rotation group.  You can also use partitions to assign award categories.  Partitions are setup in the category screen.

One the partitions are setup, you can use them to ‘filter’ which athletes you want to assign to a rotation group.  You will notice on this same screen, you can filter athletes by birth year as well!

You can also use partitions to create award categories.

So, when setting up categories for your meet, make sure you don’t separate them by birth year!

 

Setting Registration Fees

When setting your registration fees in SportzSoft LiveMeet, use the ‘default fees’ feature to set fees for all categories.  This way, the default fees will be set for all your categories and you won’t need to enter the same fees in every category.

If you need to set a different fee for a category, you can override the default fees by making the adjustment to the category fees.

The real trick is to define your default fees to be the fees that will be used by most categories, then override the category fees for only the categories you need to change.

Release Notes – 2.0.26 – January 12, 2018

Release 2.0.26 of LiveMeet on Jan 12th, 2018

Fixes in this release are…

1. Editing the location description or meet description was not enabling the Save buttons.
2. Judges Sheets report for printing was presenting the “AllAround” rotations and should not.

Changes in this release are…
Enhancements in this release are…
1. New “Scoring Issues” slide out panel appears on the session/rotations page when the system auto-detects scoring problems. This first version of this is detecting a very infrequent but stubborn defect where both vault scores end up being considered a “show score”. Usually administrators see this as the same athlete listed twice in the popup rotations box. Until we can determine how this is being done, this new scoring issues panel will quickly advise the administrator of the issue. The resolution is to open the scoring for that athlete and slightly change a score element (i.e. E-Score 1) and post. Then re-edit and re-post the original value. A “change” needs to be detected for the internal scoring to actually perform the re-calculation of the show score(s). Other possible issues could arise in the future, and this new “Scoring Issues” panel will be the tool to communicate to the scoring administrator.

Release Notes – 2.1.0 – Friday, February 16, 2018

Release 2.1.0 of LiveMeet…

Fixes in this release are…

1. Security fix to make sure only “Super Admin” users or users listed on the meet access list can open the meet.

Changes in this release are…

1. Setting a session gender to “Mixed” will now result in all defined sport events/apparatus (both male and female) to appear as possible events within a session. This allows configuration of rotations in a session for both male and female participants.

Enhancements in this release are…

1. Session window rotations and popups have all been upgraded to use the floating dialog instead of fixed on-top panel.
2. Seeing and configuring scoring rules and scorers is now all possible directly from the session page itself.
3. Each rotation box now provides an addtional two sub boxes (1) scoring rule information (2) scorer/judge information.
4. Scoring rule box allows administrator to see and set scoring rule per apparatus, see and set scoring rule per rotation (as an over-ride of the apparatus rule), and see any over-ride rules on specific athletes (set an athlete rule is still in the scoring page).
5. Judges/Scorer box presents information about how scoring is being performed and by whom. Clicking on it will provide a popup dialog with details about the judge assignments (if applicable), or the scorer assigned. Scorers are being depracted in favour of “Apparatus Judge Profiles” which are basically generic judge profiles such as Beam Scorer that is allowed to score ALL beam events in any session. This popup will provide the option to easily and quickly create all necessary “Apparatus Judge Profiles” if not yet done.
6. The rotation athlete/scoring list is now in a floating dialog to allow the user to move its position on the screen. In addition, it no longer has the scorers or scoring rule settings as they are not needed. You will also notice some new visual effects of scores being slide left or right when clicking Next/Prev buttons on a score.

Release Notes – 2.1.1 – Monday, March 5, 2018

Release 2.1.1 of LiveMeet…

Fixes in this release are…

1. Gender selection on volunteer signup was only allow female.

Changes in this release are…

1. Viewing options within the Volunteer page have been adjusted slightly to change “Signup” to “Control” and make it the first option.
2. A loading XXXX message is presented when changing views within the Volunteer page.

Enhancements in this release are…

1. New Age Range property on a personal profile and a Minimum Age Range property added on the Volunteer Activity. Volunteers are prompted at signup to provide this personal detail (instead of a birthdate as many adults are remiss to provide that). Age Ranges are presented in a dropdown as Under 10, Over 10, Over 12, Over 14, Over 16, Over 18, Over 19 and Over 21.
2. Prompting for the age range is a selectable feature within Volunteer Control
3. When the minimum age is set on a volunteer activity ONLY volunteers that satisfy the age will “see” that activity.
4. Volunteer popup adjusted to show and allow administrative access to the age range of a volunteer (date of birth also now presented)

Release Notes – 2.1.2 – Thursday, March 22, 2018

Release 2.1.2 of LiveMeet

Fixes in this release are…

1. OnDeck scores were appearing in Results Reports as a 0.000 score.

Changes in this release are…

1. Zones feature has been added back in (had been hidden for awhile) within the Planning > Settings tab. This allows identification of what ZONE a club belongs to, and then Awards Categories support this as a filtering option.

Enhancements in this release are…

1. Sessions marked as “Finals” now support a new Options dropdown called Configure Finals Rotations to support direct rotation and athlete score management without groups. (see more below)
2. Results Reporting popup for “Results Settings” now has a new look and feel (more readable now that there are several more settings possible to set)
3. Team Awards setting now exists to control the Type of team awards (Per Apparatus Score or Per AllAround Score). Previoulsy only Per Apparatus Score was supported. The Team Awards report itself will calculate and present differently based on the setting.

Finals Sessions are custom in that no groups are really created or needed. Instead, step 1 is to determine qualifiers from prior sessions, step 2 create one (maybe more but not likely) rotation per apparatus, step 3 obtain the qualifers per apparatus and then step 4 place the qualifers onto a rotation within the finals session. Results Reporting “Per Event” allows identification of qualifiers and reserves. WIthin the finals session, the options dropdown provides an option to “Configure Finals Rotations” which presents a movable dialog of the qualifiers to support easy placement of these athletes onto rotations within that session. Drag and drop exists to allow sequencing as well of the scores within the rotation.
