Group Entry: How to enable Sections to appear as Tabs during Group Entry
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
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
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"
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
#1: Click on the name of the Section Tab
#2: The fields in that Section will be hidden (e.g. the Linked Body Weight section's fields)
#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.
Some users deselect all but one of the section to only show the fields
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).
