Enabling Exhibition Entries Setting
Entries (an athlete in an event) can be set as Exhibition. Entire Events and Swimmers cannot.
To enable Exhibition Entries, go to Manage Team > Schedule > Specific Meet > Meet Setup > Entry Rules > Individual Entries. Set the checkbox for “Allow exhibition entries.”
>>Note: If the checkbox is greyed out and you are unable to change the setting, this is due to the meet being linked to a locked template. If using a shared league template, you will need to speak to your league to request an update to this setting in the template. If you created the template and have permission to make changes, you can go to Schedule > Meet Templates to update the setting. Changes to templates will automatically propagate to any meet that has not already occured.
Marking Entries as Exhibition
To set an entry as exhibition, go to the Entries screen and click the pencil next to the Athlete’s name.
You’ll be presented with the entries for that Athlete where you check exhibition (Exh) as needed.
Exhibition entries will be marked with a small "x" in the upper right corner of the athlete entries table.
Exhibition Entries in Meet Maestro™
If you mark the entries as exhibition, after you merge the meet they will show up in Meet Maestro next to the entry as "EXH." (Clarifying that it is entries not swimmers that are marked as exhibition).
➞ See Meet Maestro™ for more information on SwimTopia's meet management tool.
Exhibition Entries in Meet Manager
If you mark the entries as exhibition, they will show up as exhibition in Meet Manager too.
In Meet Manager there is a setting that will allow you to seed Exhibition entries after other entries.
In Meet Manager, navigate to:
Set-up > Seeding Preferences > Basic > Parameters > Seed Exhibition athletes last
>>Note: Be aware that the setting of exhibition has no bearing on whether or not the time is considered "official." An exhibition entry merely means it doesn't score in that meet. The result produced by that swim is still considered valid and "official" if the meet was also considered official.
