Group Entry Mode Improvements: Entering in data into one Section at a Time in Group Entry

Event Forms can now be set up to enable sections to appear separately when you enter data in Group Entry Mode.

The "Enter Data for Group" Module allows you to enter in data for an Event Form for multiple athletes

The "Enter Data for Group" Module allows you to enter in data for an Event Form for multiple athletes

Any Event Form that has been set up as "Group Entry" can be selected to be entered for an entire group of athletes at one time.

After you select the type of Event Form that you want to enter, the athletes appear in the rows and all of the field names appear in separate columns in a Group Entry Table

All of the Event Form field names appear as separate columns to enter across the page in a Group Entry Table. When you click on a cell you can see what field and what athlete you are entering in new data for. Some Forms have up to 200 fields and entering in data in group mode was difficult. If your Event Form is set up correctly by your site builder, you can now select to just view one or a few Section/s at a time during group entry mode.

If your Event Form is set up correctly, now when you enter data using the Group Entry Mode EVERY section in the Event Form appears along the top of the Group Entry Table

#1: All of the sections in the Event Form appear above the Group Entry Table as separate Tabs.

#2: As soon as you click on a Section name (e.g. the Linked Bod Weight Section) all of the fields in that section will be hidden (as shown in the image below). This means you can enter in data for a section and click on the Section Tab to hide the section and only see the next section.

Once you click on a Tab, the Tab changes colour to show it has been deselected and the Fields from that Section are hidden

Some users now choose to deselect all but one of the sections to enhance their group entry work flow. This means only the fields in the selected section will appear

N.B. If you have a Section that has no Section Title (name), the fields in that section will always appear, but you will not be able to select/deselect any Blank Sections

For this example we removed the name of the Back Squats Results section. During Group Entry Mode, the Section name will not appear for deselection and the fields in the section will always appear (as shown in the image in the step below).

N.B. All of the sections have been deselected but the back squat fields (from the section with no name) always appear

Any fields in a Section that has no Section Title will still be available for entry during Group Entry Mode, but they cannot be hidden as the Section cannot be hidden.

If you need your Event Form to be set up with separate sections but it is not, contact you system Builder or your distributor for further help
