New in MEET MANAGER 5.0
Previous  Top  Next

This New Features List is based on MEET MANAGER 4.0Bo which is the last planned version of the 4.0 release series.

Database Conversion

·If MM 5.0 attempts to open an MM 2.0 database, the database will be automatically converted to the MM 5.0 structure. MM 5.0 databases are interchangeable with MM 4.0 and MM 3.0 databases, but when opening with MM 3.0 or MM 4.0, the features that come with MM 5.0 will of course not be available.  
·MM 2.0 versions will not be able to open an MM 5.0 database. The work around for MM 2.0 users is to install the Free MM 5.0 Demo and use the Demo to view the data, create reports, and create needed export files. The ACTIVE Network Demo for MM 5.0 can be downloaded from the HY-TEK web site at: http://www.hy-tekltd.com/downloads.html

You then select the correct meet, select the desired Cross Country events from the event list below the meet list, and click Upload Results. If your results were entered into the CC/RR Module, you must first update those results to copy them to the standard Run Menu results.

·In the Run Menu's Heat grid, the Result Note is shown with each entry.  
·Records for Combined Event sub events are now displayed in Records section at the upper right.

Age Grading

Relays Menu

·In the Relay Names Menu accessed from the Run Menu, there is a Next and Previous button to allow scrolling through the heats within the event rather than selecting one heat at a time.  
·In the Relays Menu and in the Relay Names Menu from Run, exhibition athletes are shown with an "x" in front of their name to help in determining whether a relay should be exhibition or not. This is independent of whether the Report Preference to show the athlete status is checked or not.  

Import / Export

·When merging results for one or more events from one database to another at the same meet, the field series with all attempts and all wind readings is now included in the merge.  
·When exporting entries, results or rosters for one team, the team name is now included in the export file.

Interfaces

·In the Meet Summary reports, wind readings for all rounds are now included.  
·For the Performance List Report, the total entry count for a given event is listed at the top of the report in parenthesis with the event name. This is most useful if Team Split, Multi-Age Split or Show Ranks has been checked.
