Say Goodby to trying to write a bunch of scores into a program and tally up all
the scores before awards! MeetTracker does it all for you!
MeetTracker is an online Gymnastics Meet Tracking System where the users in the
system update the scores.
MeetTracker is specifically designed for Mobile Devices, so the text is small and
each page has been designed to perform well on a very simple web browser. Because
MeetTracker was designed for mobile devices and cell phones with web capabilities
it may not seem as sophisticated as you would expect, but don't be fooled, this
application is packed with features. You start by logging into the system. If you
do not have a login, you can create one from the login page by pressing the "Register"
button. Once logged in you can use the search window to search for an event. Once
an event is selected, you will be presented with a list of sessions for that event.
Adding an Event
In Gymnastics, many events have different sessions, so if you are adding the event,
you will also be asked to add a session to that event. Every event MUST have at
least one session for the system to operate properly. If your event only has 1 session,
you can just call the required session "Main" or something else. If you didn't add
the event, you will be presented with sessions that others have added. Just select
the session you wish to monitor and you are up and running.
The Gymnast Score Entry Line
The top line of the main session page is where you can add gymnast scores. The system
is very intelligent and if a gymnast is not currently in the system, they will be
added when you or someone else adds the first score. So you don't need to pre-add
all the gymnasts. However, you will not see a name, age or level until you use the
"Add/Edit" button to enter that information or until someone else enters that information.
This is discussed further later. In normal mode, there is one line to enter scores
and you enter the Gymnast's Number, select the event from the drop down list and
then the score. You do not need to enter a decimal point when entering the score.
The system knows what numbers are acceptable and will place the decimal point accordingly.
There is also a Speed Entry Mode that will show 4 to 6 lines pre-labeled so that
4 scores can be entered at a time. In speed mode, you just fill in the Gymnast's
Number and score on the appropriate line. You do not need to fill in every line,
but you can enter more than 1 score. You can fill in some or all of the scores and
gymnast numbers and the program will figure out what information is available and
enter it appropriately.
The Main Scoring Window
The main scoring window is where you will spend most of your time. This is the window
where all the Gymnast Information is displayed. Each score that has been entered
will be displayed on this page. Scores are displayed in Black text with a little
number to the right of each score in Red. The red number represents the ranking
(First, Second Third, etc.) for that Gymnast. You will notice that the Event Titles
are a different color as well. This is because they are live and you can click on
them. If you click on an Event Title, the grid results will be sorted by that event.
Occasionally, you may see the entire score in Red.
If you see this it is because a score you have personally entered differs from either
a judge entered score or at a non hosted event your score differs from the score
that a majority of others have entered. Your score and information will always prevail
and be displayed, but the system is letting you know a majority of others recorded
something different. If you haven't entered specific information, you will be shown
what the majority of others (or the Judges at a Hosted Event) have entered. Also,
if there is a descrepancy with a score, the Total score will show in Red, but your score will be used for the total and any ranking will be
based on your input. You can view a Gymnast's information any time by pressing the
"Add/Edit" button. A screen will appear where you can add\edit gymnast information.
This screen is discussed next.
The Gymnast Information and Entry Page
The first line of the Information page has a place to enter the Gymnast's Number.
At this time you have 2 choices. You can fill in any or all available text blocks
and press the "Update" button. All of your information on that Gymnast will be updated
in the system. Your second option is to fill in the Gymnast's Number and press the
"Retrieve Info" button. Pressing this will retrieve any system information on this
Gymnast. You can then fill in any blanks and once again press the "Update" button.
The Filter Button
The filter button allows you to filter on any Gymnast's Age and/or Level. This is
an "And" Filter, so by combining choices you will be limiting the list to a smaller
group of Gymnasts. Once a filter is set, the button changes it's name to "Filtered"
letting you know that a filter has been set. To remove a filter simply uncheck all
the items checked and press the "Set Filter" button. If no check boxes are selected,
the filter will clear. Only the Ages and Levels that have been entered into the
system will be displayed for filtering, and if no one has entered an age for a particular
Gymnast, they will not be displayed. So for example if there are 10 Gymnasts in
a session and 5 have ages entered and 5 do not. If you select an age to filter on,
only the Gymnast's that have that age entered will be returned. Any Gymnast that
has a different age than the one selected and all Gymnasts that have no age will
not be displayed. By selecting different ages and levels you can create your own
grouping. NOTE: All ranking will be done only on the Gymnast's returned by the filter
settings you have. So if your filter settings only return 4 Gymnasts, the ranking
will be 1-4 for only those 4, not all the other Gymnasts.
The Refresh Button
Pressing this button will refresh the Score Grid using any settings you have asked
for and will also update the grid with information others may have added. At a non
Hosted meet, the more people at a meet entering scores, the more accurate the information.
However, if you are the only one at a meet entering scores, switch to speed entry
and you will know who is in first, second and so on way before anyone else at the
