TM offers a very powerful set of "Codes" that you can set up to "filter" or designate the information about particular items in your Database. A "Code" can be any three alpha-numeric characters and includes a Code Description as well as a designation as to what type of code that it represents:
For example, you might want to designate groups of swimmers based on the coach that is responsible for their training. Or you might want to set up Groups based on the pool that they work with and then use subgroups to designate elite or novice swimmers.
You might want to use the School Year designation so that when you enter the Athlete, you can put them into a specific School Year code. Then you could filter Reports and Browsers based on a particular School Year.
If your TM is licensed to a League, then you may want to set up multiple Team Divisions and assign each of the teams to one of those divisions. This makes it easy to print reports like Top Times grouped by each Team Division.
You might want also want to designate workout groups and/or workout subgroups of swimmers based on workout classifications for the coach that is responsible for their training - for example distance or sprint swimmer groups. These workout groups and subgroups many be used extensively in the Workout Manager menus.
You can set up different Meet Types so that you can get a Top Times Report for all results in the US Meet Type, or the HS (High School) Meet Type. The Meet Type designation is specified when you Add or Edit a Meet.
You might be entering a meet that has a number of Divisions - for example, JV or Varsity in which the events in the meet are classified for one of those two Divisions - Men's Varsity 100 Free and JV 100 Free. The Meet Division designation is specified when you set up each event.
You might be maintaining a database of multiple teams in your league and want to run various reports for a particular Team Division.
