Accessing Your Meet (Windows Desktop Application Installer)
The Meet Maestro Desktop application is necessary when running Meet Maestro with an external timing system. You will access and re-access your meet through the desktop application.
Download the latest version of Meet Maestro Desktop: https://swimtopia.com/downloads/maestro/latest
>>Note: If you have previously installed Meet Maestro Desktop, please be sure to close any currently running version before installing a new version.
➞ See Meet Maestro - Windows Desktop Application Installer & Details for more information.
>>Note: These access points only apply to the web browser version. If using a timing system, the desktop version of Meet Maestro is required. You will log in from the desktop application and select your meet. ➞ See Getting Started with Meet Maestro to locate the timing system article that applies to your team.
There are two ways to access your meet. The main access point is from within your merged meet on your SwimTopia team management site. The other more direct approach is by direct access via Meet Maestro's URL.
➧ Option 1: From within the SwimTopia meet
After the meet is merged, a Meet Maestro button will appear in the header. Clicking on this button will launch Meet Maestro in a new window.
Multiple admins, including admins on any of the participating teams, may then click the Meet Maestro button to see the meet in Meet Maestro and run reports. The meet may be open in multiple browsers concurrently.
➧ Option 2: Direct login to Meet Maestro
Log into an account with site admin or swim meet management level permissions at https://maestro.swimtopia.com. If you are a member or multiple teams, you will select the team first, and then you are presented with a list of swim meets to select the particular meet. Be careful to select the correct meet.
>>Note: If you close the meet in Meet Maestro you can return to the same meet from any screen within your meet on your SwimTopia team site (Option 1). Or you can access your meet directly (Option 2).
Login Permissions (Web Browser & Desktop Application)
Team admins with swim meet permissions or "red badge" sitewide admin permissions will be able to log in with their SwimTopia username and password. Read-only swim meet access will limit the user to read-only mode.
➞ See Role-Based Permissions article for more on this topic.
>>Tip: If there are issues with someone logging in, an admin should check that their role has the appropriate permissions. As an alternative, you can click the "Make Admin" button within the user’s profile, but only do this if the person can have full admin privileges.
>>Note: Meet Maestro is only supported through Google Chrome browser. All major browsers are supported for the team management side of SwimTopia.
