How To Get Help
There are a number of ways you can get answers to your questions and/or problems.
TM Product Help
The fastest and easiest way to get answers to your questions is to use the TM Help included with your product. The Help section provides simple to follow instructions on "How to" accomplish specific tasks that you will be performing as you use TEAM MANAGER to manage your team's administrative and performance oriented tasks. Click on Help from the TM Main Menu Bar as shown below.
Man Menu Bar
When you click on Help, there will be a number of choices. Click on Contents to display the Help Introduction screen.
You can "minimize" this screen so that it will always be available on the your Windows Task bar and you can "resize" and "position" it on your desktop as you wish.
Now click on Index and enter a key word or part of a key word as show below.
For example, suppose you wish to find out detail information about entering an athlete into your Database. Just enter "Athlete" as the key word and the TM Help will display all of the topics about "Athletes". Click on the appropriate topic and the TM Help will display that particular help screen that discusses that topic.
This TEAM MANAGER Help section is designed to be replaced by a Swim Team or Swim Organization's customized help file. For example, if a league or conference wants to include customized instructions on how to set up a database or meet entries for the league or conference meets, a standard Windows Complied Help file (.chm file) can be set up using any one of the many Windows Help authoring tools that are available in the marketplace.
The Windows help file that is produced must be named: TM8Custom.chm
and must be stored in the installation directory that was specified when TEAM MANAGER was installed. The default installation directory is c:\Hy-Sport\TM8. So if the default installation directory was used to install TEAM MANAGER, the Help file should be stored in c:\Hy-Sport\TM8\TM8custom.chm.
User Guide in Acrobat pdf Format
If you prefer to review the User Guide instead of using the TM Help facility, you can do that either:
