Get Competitors Into the Program

How you do this depends on your situation:


Importing from a previous carnival

If your competitors are largely coming from the results of a previous SportsTrak carnival, use Wizard 5 to move them in and edit them.


You are an Inter-school Coordinator

If you are an Inter-school Coordinator and require teams from participating schools, follow Wizard 4.


You are working on your own program basically from scratch

If you have no external source of data you need to enter competitors directly.

Follow Wizard 6, except

 - you will import the MM program and teams instead of the described steps 2 and 3

 - if you are not handling too many competitors you may choose not to import them as described, but enter them directly yourself as students, then allocate them to events.
