Viewing Your Existing Event Forms
To access all of the data capture Event Forms (e.g. fitness tests, medical data, physiology tests) that are available on your application, you can click on the "Event Pages" button.
Once you click on "Event Pages" you will be shown a complete list of all of the Event Forms that have been built on your system. These forms are the structure of all of the data which is stored and tracked on the main application.
On the main Application, the Event Forms are the data capture forms that users use to track their data.The data captured can then be used in the Reports, through to Performance Summary Reports and even the Performance Alerts Modules
On the Application, the Event Forms appear in the Enter Data for Athlete page
The Event Forms and the fields in the Event Forms are also used for creating Performance Alerts through to specific reports
To View Your Event Forms on the Builder click on the "Event Pages" button
A complete list of all of the Event Forms on your systems will appear in alphabetical order
The Event Forms Page allows you to see:
The entire list of your Event Forms in the Name column
The Category that each Event Form is saved under
Any Tags (sub categories) that the Event Form is saved under
You also have the Ability to (all discussed in depth in the Updating Existing Forms Lesson):
Edit the each Event Form's Name
Delete each Event Form
Duplicate each Event Form
Resave the Form (which will resave any calculations in the form that you might have added into)
Migrate Fields which allows you to change a field name without losing any data which is saved to it
Migrate Options allows you to change options in a field safely without any data which is saved to it
To View/Edit an existing Event Form click on the form name to open the form
The fields will be displayed. The example here shows the fields in a 40m Sprint Event Form
You can add in as many NEW fields as you require using the Add Question module on the left of the Event Builder page
You CAN add in new calculations, or as many fields NEW as you require into a form using the Add Question button. This is discussed fully in Creating a new Event Form, and you need to thoroughly understand this before you edit existing Data Capture Forms with Data in them.
An example of this is that you have a new timing system for your sprint test and you want to record the 5m time as well.
To do this, you click on the field name that you want the new question to be inserted underneath (e.g. Start Type):
-Click on "Add Number", and a new field will appear underneath the Start Type field.
-Set up the Properties of the Number (e.g. format, 0.00, Number Type- Time and Unit seconds, through to showing or not showing in the reports etc) which is discussed fully in Builder Properties
-Add in two numeric calculations (shown in the step below) to calculate the 5m split and velocity
-Click "Save" and the changes will be saved.
Please note that you can add in as many NEW Question fields as you require. However, if you change or modify the existing field names in the form in ANY WAY you will probably delete existing data on the system. See the Lesson on safely updating the form name, field name and options to avoid losing any data.
An example of the new fields being added to the 40m Sprint
3 new fields have been added:
- a 5m sprint time (with units as seconds)
- a 5m split numeric calculation
- a 0-5m velocity numeric calculation
Click Save to update the Event Form and the changes will the instantly be available in the actual application (see the step below to see the new fields in the event)
To change the name of an existing field, the existing options in a field or the Event Form name, please see the Lesson on "Safely Updating/Changing Field names". NEVER go directly into the form and rename it
If any data has been saved for that field on the actual application, you will wipe any saved data if you open the form and just re-type in a new field name. See the section on how to safely update, change and rename field names and options within forms to learn how to update fields and/or options.
However, if you are just creating a new form and no users have access to the form and you are SURE no data has been saved for the field name you are changing, you can retype in a new field name and save the changes. Ensure you check you do not need to update any calculations or visibility settings that referenced that field name as well.
