Flash Timing

Is racetab compatible with the Flashtiming FAT system?

I checked with flashtiming last spring and it wasn't at that time.  We use Hytek at our major meet since we can score the running events automatically with flashtiming.

At our dual meets, racetab is much more user friendly, but we have to manually type in the FAT times.  If anyone knows if racetab can be used with flashtiming, please respond.

Advancement from Prelims to Finals

At a meet this past week I could not find a way for the heat sheets to state what the advancements where.  Anyone have an idea?

How do you go about entering results for Multis, Hep, Pent or Dec?  I can see the event in Events but it just allows for the final score, Does the program do the individual events and look up the score then render a Final score based on tables?

Problems creating finals

I am using RaceTab to run our conference championship meet.  I seeded the preliminaries and entered their marks from the prelims.  My problem now is that I can not find a way to populate the finals so that everything scores properly.  What am I missing?

By the way, everything had to be entered manually since we do not have an FAT system.

Wow! Look at all the interest here

Kind of humbled by all the interest in RaceTab. It is really seeming to blow up and get a huge following.

I wish I had more time to devote to this project year-round but I don't. So most of the support requests I get I can not immediately respond to. Glad this community is here to help.

Good news is after this weekend (May 5) my season will be over here in Florida... And once I get caught up I will have more time for the summer. That means I will be updating RaceTab and…

Importing Wave Assignments

I am trying to import information about entrants to my event. I have two waves in the event, I assign a column to Wave#, import the data, but it does not properly populate the information on the athlete detail. Everyone gets assigned to the first wave. Hints about how to straighten this out?

I know that I can manually change it, but I have 300 entrants and would prefer not to do it manually.
