Event Status Bar
The left sidebar in Meet Maestro provides an at-a-glance summary of the event status in the meet. Each colored cell represents a single event (for example “Boys 11-12 50yd Backstroke”). The dark blue lines between cells are a visual indicator of a change in the stroke or event type (e.g. there is a dark blue bar between relays and freestyle events, then there is another blue bar between the freestyle and backstroke events, etc.).
>>Tip: Hovering your mouse over an Event Status Bar cell will reveal more details about the corresponding event, including the event name, status, and the number of heats and entries.
You can click on any of the cells to go directly to that event.
The event number is shown prominently in the upper left corner of the screen. You can use the up/down arrows to the left of the event number to progress forward or backwards through the events. Keyboard shortcuts: “Command” (Mac) or “Control” (PC) plus the up/down arrow keys.
Heat View and Lane View
You choose to display your event in either Heat View or Lane View by selecting the Heat or Lane tab at the top of your screen.
➧ Heat View:
- Heat number is displayed in the Heat tab.
- Heats are shown in boxes below the event number.
- The heats are color-coded as well: green for complete, yellow for incomplete, and blue for heats not yet started. Color coding should make it easier to spot the incomplete heat (which would show yellow) in an event that is showing yellow.
- Each row displays the swimmers assigned to each lane for that heat.
- Easily move swimmers to different lanes within that heat by dragging and dropping the row to a new lane (hover over the left side of the row until your cursor looks like a cross).
- Move between heats by clicking the left/right arrows next to the heat indicator in the Heat tab, or by hitting “Command” (Mac) or “Control” (PC) and the left/right arrow keys.
- If on the last heat, arrowing to the "next" heat will automatically take you to the next event.
➧ Lane View:
- Lane number is displayed in the Lane tab.
- All lanes are shown next to triangles (flags) below the event number.
- Each row displays the swimmers assigned to each heat within that lane.
- If timer sheets are printed by lane, this view will provide an efficient way to enter times as the timer sheets come in to the computer table.
- Move between lanes by clicking the left/right arrows next to the lane indicator in the Lane tab, or by hitting “Command” (Mac) or “Control” (PC) and the left/right arrow keys.
- If on the last lane, arrowing to the "next" lane will take you to the next event.
Heat Actions Menu - Add/Remove Empty Heats, Re-scrore or Print Event Results
Use the dropdown menu at the end of the list of heats to Add Heat, Remove Empty Heats, Re-score Event or Print Results for that one event.
>>Re-score Event Tip: Normally your events will score automatically as soon as all data is input for all scoring heats in the event. If for any reason, your event is stuck in a “partial” update (yellow) state even though all the data is input, the re-score event option will force the event to score if it failed to do so automatically (it’s rare, but can happen in some scenarios).
