Deck Seed an Entry (Individual or Relay)
|Top Previous Next|
MM offers you 5 ways to Deck Seed or manually seed an Entry:
When you choose this method, you may Deck Seed entries for the 1st round ONLY - that is Prelims in a multi-round event or Finals for a Timed Final event.
Click on Athletes from the Main Menu then pick the Athlete and position the cursor on the Heat/Lane column under Entries in the appropriate row for the event. Now enter the Heat and Lane in which this Athlete is assigned to swim in the format Heat/Lane - for example, enter "4/5" for Heat 4 Lane 5.
Click on Relays from the Main Menu. Next pick the Relay Event and then the Relay Team Entry to Deck Seed. Now position the cursor on the Heat/Lane column under Relay Team Entries in the appropriate row. Now enter the Heat and Lane in which this Relay is assigned to swim in the format Heat/Lane - for example, enter "3/1" for Heat 3 Lane 1.
Click on Seeding then pick an Event then click on the Preview icon . MM will display all of the eligible Athletes or Relays for that event. Click on one you wish to Deck Seed and "drag" that Entry and drop into the appropriate lane. Continue as you require to fill up the heat and then click on the Add Heat icon to add another heat. Click Here for more methods to Deck Seed athletes from the Preview Menu.
Select and event in the Run Menu, click on the Adjust Button, or press the F8 key. MEET MANAGER will display the Preview menu and from there you have several options to deck seed athletes or relays.
From the Run Screen, position your cursor in the field under the Competitor # column for the lane that you wish to Deck Seed the Athlete. Enter a competitor # that was previously setup for the Athletes. MM will move this Athlete into the lane that you selected. If the athlete was already in another heat or lane, you will be notified that the athlete will be moved from that position.
As you are setting up your events for the meet, from the Events screen select "Un-Seeded" under the Assign Lanes heading for the events you wish to Deck or Manual Seed. Then when you go and Seed that event and subsequently RUN the meet, MM will display all of the Athletes in the event on the RUN screen sorted Fast-Slow or Slow-Fast as you specified in the Event Set-up. Then as results are provided to you for the entire event sorted by time, you can quickly find the swimmers and enter their times on the Run screen. Note: In the Events Set Up screen, the Manual Seed check box must NOT be checked and you must use the Seeding Menu to seed the event to take advantage of this feature.
