Custom Layouts for Athlete Reports

Top  Previous  Next

When you enter a swimmer into your TM Database, you have the option of entering a great deal of information. TEAM MANAGER offers many types of Athlete Reports and many ways to sort and customize each one.  In addition to those "Canned" reports, TM also provides a way for you to set up and totally customize reports for your athletes' information.  For example, you may want to set up a report sorted by a particular "Custom" field that you have entered for each athlete - maybe about their volunteer activities for the team.  Or maybe you want to print a report of each swimmer and their cell phone numbers.

 

Click on Set-up from the Main Menu Bar then Custom Layouts for Athlete Reports.

 

Click on the Add menu selection to compose a new Custom Layout or the Delete selection to delete a Custom Layout that you have previously saved.

 

Below is an example of a report layout that has been set up.  Once you Save the "new" report layout, when you subsequently select Athlete Reports, you can pick from any of the Custom layouts that you have designed and saved.
