If a new swimmer has transferred from another team and you want to enter him/her into your Team's TM Database, you really have two ways to do this.


Manually Key in the Information

1.Enter the swimmer's administrative information first - click Here for specifics on how to do this.
2.If you want to enter the swimmer's Best Time in each event, then setup a new meet, enter the appropriate events, and then enter the swimmer's best time in each of those events just as you would enter meet results.  Click Here for specifics on how to setup a new meet and click Here for specifics on entering meet results.
3.If you have a record of meet results for this new swimmer and you want to maintain the history of those swims, you would have to set up the meets, events, and enter those results just as you would enter meet results for an upcoming meet.


Import the new Swimmer's Information from Another TM Database

1.Ask the swimmer's previous team to set up a unique Team Group and then assign the swimmer that is transferring to your team to that team group.
2.Still using the previous team's TM, click on File then Export and either choose Best Times or Meet Results. Filter the export with the Unique Team Group so that only that one swimmer will be exported.  If you choose Best Times, TM will export the swimmer's best time in each stroke and distance that he/she has swum.  Then when you import that information, only ONE meet will be set up in your TM Database with the swimmer's best time included.  If you choose Meet Results and then All Meets, the complete history of the swimmer's performance will be exported so that when you import it, you will have the proof of time history for all of the swims for this particular swimmer.
3.Take the file produced from step 2 above and using your TM software, click on File then Import then Meet Results.  Be sure to click on the Add New Athletes button.  After the import has been completed, go to the Athlete Browser and highlight the new Athlete and check the results that have been imported.
