Checking your Meet Maestro Version
You can see the version in the lower-left corner in the settings section of the app.
- Meet Maestro Desktop Application Installer requires the 64 bit version of Windows 7 or newer.
- RAM Recommendation: We suggest at least 4 GB RAM to ensure long reports etc display efficiently. Chromebooks are not a good fit since they usually only have 2 GB RAM, and cannot be used with Dolphin. If you need to use a Chromebook make sure to increase the RAM.

For access to Meet Maestro, members can be assigned to a Role with Read or Manage Swim Meet Administrative Permissions (as seen in the screenshot below).
» Note: Read-only swim meet access will limit the user to read-only mode.
As an alternative, you can grant the Role to have "All Administrative Permissions" OR click the "Make Admin" button within the user’s profile but only do this if the person can have full admin privileges.
With either of these, they will be able to log in with their SwimTopia username and password.
➞ 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.
