Adding a relay

Hey Jason

I sent you an email about this but seeing if anyone else has a work around.  So the last 2 meets I needed to add relays.  In the past we could just go to the team tab and then click on the "+" and add one.  In the newer versions (or I remember different) I need to add the relay through the athlete.

The problem I have with this is that often I don't require relay names -- especially for the meet I will do this week.  So I just pick a random person and everything works…

Performance time transfer from FAT to Racetab

Ron - It is the first situation. Ex. On the Flashtiming screen, Bob White finished the 800M at 2:23.57. On Racetab, 2:23.57 is listed for Tom Black.3 of the time transfers are correct, though.

Overall success but some issues

Very much enjoying Racetab with Flashtiming this track season. Every meet has been a success for timing and scoring. Some glitches still occur and I am interested if others have experienced the same.

What recommendations might there be?

1) After emailing the pre-meet heat sheets to the meet director, some names/assignments appear different for a specific event on meet day when I open up the program.

2) Live results showed up online for the first few events and then…

Splitting races into two heats - 6-land track

I am trying to set up a meet on a track that has six lanes for the entire track and an eight-lane straightaway. I have a 200-meter dash event  with more than six entrants. How do I split them up into two heats so that when I print a heat sheet, it shows the separate heats?

Split time publish

I have been testing split times on RaceTab and I am not sure if I am missing something but when I go to print results the first lap/split does not show up, has anybody else had this issue?

Having Trouble downloading a meet.

When I go under "Down Load a Meet From Mile Split", then try and go under "All Meets" and try and change to date to download an old meet to practice seeding and timing Race Tab is not going to the meets under the date I select. It will stay on the Indoor meets from January and February of 2016.  How do I access old meets and download them to Race Tab?  This seems to be a problem with just changing the date. The State filter and the Country filter are working.

Quick Question, importing a csv file

I downloaded the latest racetab file and do not see what you click on to import a csv file.  I have used previous versions of this but something seems to be missing.  There was not a video on this either.   Any quick help would be appreciated.  Thanks

Order of Events

Jason, when I set up a meet in Milesplit for registration it automatically puts the events in alpha order. When they are imported to RaceTab I have to spend a few extra minutes to rearrange the events for every meet. Is there a way to have them in a specific order either coming from MileSplit or in RaceTab?

Roster download

So on 4.06 and downloaded the roster of the 3 team meet tomorrow -- it worked fine except that I asked it to download XC athletes only

The problem is that it downloaded everyone.  One team had all of there XC athletes as "active" and all non XC runners "inactive" but I had my team be XC and TF or just TF hoping it would download the XC roster only

So not a major problem but with such a small meet its nice to use the stopwatch feature and download XC roster only without deleting…

Relay issue

Was checking for any bugs -- since I do a relay meet in the spring checked the scoring

I have the 300IH scored as a relay with 2 individuals -- it adds the times together but gives first place to the higher time not lower  -- example:


HS Boys Team Time Pts


1 Chichester 1:29.53 10

2 Holy Ghost Preparatory School 1:29.46…

Backwards Compatible?

ONe of my timers had a lot of issues with RT dying(exceptions being thrown but not given option to continue but just getting kicked out) when attempting to print results from the events tab.  

So he flash drived the meet to computer #2 which was using 3.93.  but when trying to print in the old version (using the race file created in 4.01) he got a screen of errors.

4.01 worked fine in dry runs the night before when both entering finishers and importing times (xNote).…
