Profile Resave button and Importing Profile Data to recalculate linked fields, or calculations
There is now a Resave Button for Profile Pages that enables you to resave any Profile Page Data
The Resave button allows you to do a Resave with the same functionality as the Resave on the Event Form Pages. This means you can add in additional fields (linked fields) or calculations and then do a Profile Resave to ensure the Profiles are up to date with these new fields. An example of this is outlined in the following steps.
The example here shows that Personal Details fields being added into a Profile Form
The image here shows that the Personal Details fields are being added into this Profile Form to automatically pull through first name, last name, date of birth etc. Previously, if you entered these fields into a Profile Form you would need to open every single Profile Form on the application, update each form and save it. Now, calculations or linked fields can be automatically updated using the resave button. An example of adding in calculations into a Profile Form is shown in the image in the step below.
Alternatively, you may want to add in additional calculation fields into a Profile Form (as shown here) after the form is initially created.
If you do not do the Resave, when you view this Profile Page none of the fields pull through into the Profile Page until it is opened and Resaved
To automatically resave the Profile Page data, on the Builder Site click on the Resave button for that Profile Page
A message will be sent to your internal and external e-mail accounts confirming that the resave is complete. Refresh your site and login.
When you view the Profile Form, any athletes with Profile data entered for that Profile Form will have the new fields already added.
You can see here that the Profile Form has been resaved and all of the new fields have been recalculated with the correct answers with the athlete's personal details information. The Resave enables you to recalculate or resave any data which should automatically pull through into a profile page (like the personal details information, and inform report, or even a new calculation field).
N.B. New Profile records are NOT created with the Resave. Only existing Profile Page records are updated.
If the athlete does not have any data entered for a Profile Form, the resave will NOT automatically add in a new entry for that athlete. The resave only updates any Profile data that is entered on the system. The image here shows that after the resave the existing Profile Information was not changed because no Profile Data has been entered for this athlete.
You would not expect the Resave button on the Event Form Pages to add in NEW entries if there are no entries entered. The Profile Page Resave works exactly the same; it only resaves the existing Profile entries.
