How to Use TM Lite


After Installing TM Lite, please follow these steps for completing your entries to send to the meet host.


What the Meet Host does:

1.The meet host sets up the meet name and meet events in MEET MANAGER for Swimming.
2.In MEET MANAGER, the meet host clicks File / Export / Events for TM  and e-mails this Meet Events file to all teams/schools entering.


What the Team does:

1.Each team imports this Meet Events file into TM Lite or TEAM MANAGER using File / Import / Meet Events. NOTE: Upon first use of TM Lite or TEAM MANAGER and before importing, the TM person must click File / Open and type in a database name to create a TM database.
2.If the TM person did not receive a Meet Events file, then the TM person must add the meet as well as the meet events. In TM, Go to Meets / Add and enter the appropriate information.  Then go to Events, click the radio button for Entry Events, then add the events. Click Here for instructions on how to set up a meet as well as the meet events. It is highly recommended that the TM person import the Meet Event file rather than manually add the meet events to TM Lite.
3.The TM person adds their team abbreviation and team name using the Teams Menu - click Here for specific instructions on how to do this.  Then the TM person enters their rosters using the Athletes Menu - click Here for specific instructions on how to do this.
4.The TM person then clicks Meets, selects the meet and clicks Entries and selects By Event or By Name to place athletes into events and to add relays. For each entry, the team must enter a Custom Time since TM will not have record of Best Times.  Relays can only be added By Event. Click Here for specific instructions on how declare meet entries.
5.The team clicks Reports / Performance / Meet Entries to create a report of the meet entries to verify that all entries are complete and correct.
6.Upon verification, the TM person clicks File / Export / Meet Entries. This will create a zipped file that is to be e-mailed to the meet host.  Click Here for specific instructions on how to do this.


What the Meet Host does:

3.The meet host runs MEET MANAGER, clicks File / Import / Entries, and selects the zipped entry file. A menu will appear with various options and it is important to check the box that says to "match on event number". This way the entries from each team are guaranteed to come in perfectly with the correct event.
4.The meet host then creates a Flat HTML report for each team using Reports / Psych Sheets. This Flat HTML file is then e-mailed back to the team/school for verification that the entries are correct.


Please note that if you had the basic TEAM MANAGER, this entry process would be much easier as TM would use each athlete's Best Time as the entry time for the meet - no need to enter a Custom Entry Time for each entry and each meet.  Just call the Sales Office toll free at 866.456.5111 or e-mail them at for more information.  Or you can order TEAM MANAGER right on the web at
