Version 2200 Changes

Previous pageReturn to chapter overview

SportsTrak 2100 did most of what most users required. The aim of the new version is to improve the interface, incorporate in-line help, improve the wizards to cover more functionality, remove little used features, promote little known features,  force better data folder practices from users,  and improve the import/export capabilities.  The aim was to do all this while retaining full file compatibility with ST2100.


Summary of changes.

 Integrated Help System

 All carnival settings are now on one window, not three as in ST2100

Wizards guide users through nearly all major tasks

 Open events now have a Lower Age limit.  eg Open Yr09 to Yr12 (or 15Yr to 21Yr) 50m Freestyle

Lane management has been totally reworked

 Massed Entry has been reworked, especially to make it more suitable for Cross Country

 Ability to Import Student Data from Excel Spreadsheet (in addition to the previous text file method)

 Import/Export the Program of Events from Excel.  Allows bulk editing or major modifications in Excel

 Export Student list to Excel

 Send program of events to MS-Word

 Carnival.tps export file can now have a different file name

 Many screens are resizable and remembered

 Several key tables allow user definable fonts selection

 All screen sizing, placing, and fonts can be reset to default

Wizard window can be set to open automatically when SportsTrak opens.

 New Data folders are by default placed inside the Program Folder, eg C:\SportsTrak2200\SWim2013

Creating a new data folder prompts for Carnival type and creates appropriate default files

Creating a new data folder allows you to copy an existing folder

 Non-existent previously used paths are removed from the list of choices

        Removed 5 Star standards utility

Remove Selected Data keeps a copy of affected or deleted files in case you make a mistake.

 Improved General Backup and Restore



 Long Term PBs and Personal Results

ST2100 compatibility

To accommodate the changes to lanes and the lower age limit we have stolen 7 characters from the Other Info field of the program of events. In ST2100 each event could have 35 characters of other information.  In ST2200, this is reduced to 28 characters.


Excel and Word

Some of the new functionality requires Microsoft Office on your machine
