Now you can set up your Event Forms to be appear as separate sections 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

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

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 the 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. For large Event Forms, this could have created a very large table.

Now you can select which Sections appear during group entry. This means you can see the fields from all, some, or just one Section during Group Entry

Previously, it was hard to navigate through an Event Form if there were over 50 fields. Some Forms have up to 200 fields and entering in data in group mode was difficult. Now you can select to view one or multiple Section/s during Group entry mode.

Click on the Event Form in the Builder Site (for this example we are using the Maximal Strength Test) and go to the Event Form's Advanced Properties

Click on the Event Form in the Builder Site (for this example we are using the Maximal Strength Test) and go to the Event Form's Advanced Properties

#1: Click on the Form Name in the Form Overview Section

#2: Click on the Advanced Properties

#3: Click on Enable Group Entry (see the step below)

N.B. Note the name of the sections in this Event Form. You can see the name of three of the sections in this Event Form (Linked Body Weight, Back Squat Results and Front Squat Results). These will appear on the Group Entry Page for selection or deselection.

Once you set Group Entry as "True", the "Group Entry Tabs" option appears and you need to set this to "Yes"

Once you set Group Entry as "True", the "Group Entry Tabs" option appears and you need to set this to "Yes"

After you enable Group Entry Mode you can set the "Group Entry Tabs" to Yes:

-If you set it to Yes, you will be able to select which sections appear during Group Entry Mode.

-If it is set to No, the Event Form will not be able to be split up into sections. It will appear as the large table.

Save and Close the Event Form.

Now when you enter this form using the Group Entry Mode EVERY section in the Event Form appears along the top of the Group Entry Table

As soon as you click on a Section Tab name (e.g. the Linked Bod Weight Section) all of the fields in that section are 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

#3: Continue to enter in your data as you normally would during Group Entry

N.B. You can click on the section name so the Tab is highlighted and the fields appear again.

If you deselect ALL of the Section Tabs all of the Fields will be hidden.

If you deselect ALL of the Section Tabs all of the Fields will be hidden.

One all of the Sections are deselected all of the fields will be hidden (unless you have an unnamed section, as outlined later in this lesson).

Some users deselect all but one of the section to only show the fields

Some users deselect all but one of the section to only show the fields

Some users deselect all of the sections and then highlight the appropriate section that they need to enter as they progress through the form.

If you are concerned about saving data, you can select to "Save" (NOT Save and Close) and this will save the data and leave the Group Entry Mode open

As soon as you click on "Save" (NOT save and close), the data will be saved and if the computer crashes or you you lose your internet connect the data entered before you clicked "Save" will be available.

N.B. To open the data and continue editing it in group entry mode, click on one of the athlete's records from their history, the calendar, recent entries page, or even schedule page and the records will open it in Group Entry Mode (as outlined in the second step below).

Once you have finished entering in your data click on "Save and Close" to save the Events and to close the Group Entry Page

Once you have finished entering in your data click on "Save and Close" to save the Events and to close the Group Entry Page

Check you have completed all of the fields in each section and then click on Save and Close.

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

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.
