Meet Maestro Windows App Installation
The Wylas Timing System is supported via a downloadable Microsoft Windows Meet Maestro desktop application. Our desktop application enables tighter integration with Wylas so that times can be detected and loaded automatically.
» Note: If you have a Mac with software that runs Windows, our Windows app can be run on a Mac.
When the installer is running, you will see this screen. This graphic will not show any installation progress or status. As long as you see this window, the installer is working. The installation may take several minutes. When the installation is complete, the app will launch automatically.
Once installed, log in with your SwimTopia credentials. You should be able to navigate to any of your meets that have been Merged under Merge/Export in your SwimTopia team management interface. You will only see meets that have been Merged in this interface.
For specific details on general system requirements to run Meet Maestro using a timing system ➞ See our Meet Maestro - Windows Desktop Application Installer & Details article.
» Note: If you have previously installed Meet Maestro Desktop, please be sure to close any currently running version before installing a new version.
Meet Maestro Timing Setup & Scoreboards
➞ See the Meet Maestro Settings – Timing Setup & Scoreboards article to select your timing system in Meet Maestro and download the start list files for your scorebards as needed. You will be directed back to this article to complete the remaining setup steps below.
» Note: If you came here from the Timing Setup article, and have performed those steps already, continue below.
After you have selected the Wylas option from the Meet Maestro Timing Setup screen, follow the steps below to complete your setup:
Step 1 ➧ Select the Correct Directory
Maestro should default to the same directory as your timing system. If it does not you may see the following error:
To resolve the issue, you can click on the copy icon next to the directory and the select "Change Directory" to paste this value into the ‘dataFolder’ field in Wylas. Example:
Step 2 ➧ Write the Timing System Configuration File (Optional)
This timing system writes a ‘meet_details.json’ file which the timing system will use to configure event descriptions, number of heats, entries, etc.
Step 3 ➧ Set the Session Number
This should be auto-detected by Meet Maestro once the timing system is running...
However, past session data can be loaded by using the Change Session Number button.
Step 4 ➧ Select the Expected Number of Times per Lane
Available options are 1, 2, 3.
Step 5 ➧ SwimTopia Mobile App Settings - Enable Live Event/Heat Bar
This setting is referencing the ability for Wylas to automatically send information about the current event and heat being swum to the SwimTopia Mobile Live Event/Heat Bar.
» Note: The SwimTopia Mobile Live Event/Heat Bar keeps your athletes and parents up-to-date on what’s happening in the pool in real-time. And when using a timing system, updates happen automagically! ➞ See Enabling the SwimTopia Live Event/Heat Bar to learn more.
Step 6 ➧ Click SAVE
Testing Before the Meet Starts
To support running tests prior to the start of the meet, but prevent premature delivery of upcoming swim reminders and live result notifications to Pro users of the SwimTopia mobile app, an early start warning will display to confirm whether or not you intend to start the meet early.
➧ This warning will only display if two conditions are met:
- The "Enable the Live Event/Heat bar" setting is checked (Step #5 above)
- The meet or session start time is in the future (not earlier than or equal to the current time)
» Note: This warning will display for each test performed until the confirmation to start the meet is selected (or start the session in a multi-session meet scenario). When "Yes..." is selected, the estimated start times will be adjusted, and the notification process will begin. There is no option to revert back to a pre-notification state.
All of the settings configured during setup can be changed by pressing the gear icon in the timing system bar. You do not need to go back to the main Timing Setup screen under the meet settings.
