If you would like to take advantage of running your Intrasquad or Time Trials meet in Meet Maestro as if you were competing against another team, you can accomplish with two options using SwimTopia.
Covered in this Article:
Option #1: Manual Lane Assignment
Break the team into two "teams" thru manual lane assignment (Ex. Blue = lanes 1-3, Orange = lanes 4-6). Lanes can be assigned prior to merging your meet or directly in the Meet Maestro interface post-merge.
To accomplish this, you would need to check the "Allow manual assignment of heats and lanes" on the Schedule > Meet Name > Meet Setup > Entry Rules screen. Then use the edit pencil on the Entries screen to assign lanes. As mentioned, you could also move athletes around once in Maestro.
If your meets are tied to a Meet Template shared from your league and this entry rule setting is locked, you will need to request that your league update the templates to allow for this configuration.
Option 2: Manual Tally Using High Scorers Report
» Note: If your team is small and you have many events with only one heat, the first option may not be as useful.
In this option, you would create a spreadsheet with the names of the swimmers on each team. At the conclusion of the meet run the High Scorers report in Meet Maestro and enter the points earned for each swimmer in your spreadsheet and then tally the results.
» Note: These workarounds do not allow for scoring as if there were two separate teams. That would be part of the full Intrasqaud feature we are tracking for a future release.
