If you are not using ChronoTrack Live for Registration, athletes and teams must be imported into your CT Live event via a TSV, TXT, or CSV file upload. Importing Athletes and Teams must be done with care for scoring types and configuration. As such, we recommend that you as Race Organizer work closely with your Timer on importing athletes and teams. Below is a list of best practices for managing athlete and team data files.
Athlete and Team Data Best Practices
- Generally speaking, it is best to allow Timers to import Athletes and Teams since they are more intimately aware of what is necessary to ensure participant data fits into scoring aspects.
- If you are providing Athlete and Team data by increments, please provide ONLY new entrants in each successive file. Please do not supply data files containing new and previously uploaded participants. This can lead to huge complications with the integrity of the data.
- Please alert the Timer to any major changes to athlete information or team structure so that they can correct data accordingly.
