A simple on-line Event Control Form
) is used to set up your details.
Explanation of Files and Pre-registration system
There are 2 main data files.
1. The EVENT CONTROL file
- this controls the process and has all information about event, including Rental Reserve and Entry counts.
It is set up by you, using an interactive form. (example)
2. The runner's ENTRY data
- one record per Registration/Entry
- entries are from an On-line form (there is a matching OTD form.
- When registration closes, the ENTRY data is downloaded by your club as a csv file ready for the SI system.
These 2 files are kept in a secure folder which can only be accessed by SRS systems and your club contact person.
Here is a list of all the REPORTS which may be run at any time. The PRIVATE ones require an access number, unique to your event.
Lists CONTROL file, and various counts:- Entry, Rentals and MAP counts by course. Run frequently to see how many have registered
Public lists of Current Entries for use at Registration and ePunch tables
