How to Use TEAM MANAGER Lite


1.The meet host sets up the meet name and meet events in MEET MANAGER for Track & Field.
2.In MEET MANAGER, the meet host clicks File / Export / Meet Events for Team Manager and e-mails this Meet Events file to all teams/schools entering.
3.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.
4.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.  It is highly recommended that the TM person import the Meet Event file rather than manually add the meet events to TM Lite.
5.The TM person adds their team abbreviation and team name using the Teams Menu and enters their rosters using the Athletes Menu.
6.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 puts in a custom entry mark.  Relays can only be added By Event.
7.The TM person clicks Reports / Meet Reports / Meet Entries to create a report of the meet entries to verify that all entries are complete and correct.
8.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.
9.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.
10.The meet host then creates a Flat HTML report for each team using Reports / Performance List. 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 for Track & Field , this entry process would be much easier as TFTM would use each athlete's Best Mark as the entry mark for the meet - no need to enter a Custom Entry Mark for each entry and each meet.  You can order TEAM MANAGER for Track & Field right on the web at
