The Auto Heat Generator allows you to quickly assign athletes into their lanes with a few clicks.
This is especially useful when you're re-assigning athletes by their rank after certain workouts during a live event where time is critical.
You can use this at any point before and during your event.
Go to the workout you want to generate the heats for.
Go to the Heat tab and click "Auto Generate Heats"
This will pull up a box with a few questions to determine how you want your Competitors organized.
HOW MANY STATIONS PER HEAT?
This will determine the number of lanes or stations available in a Heat
DO YOU WANT TO OVERLAP DIVISIONS?
This will determine the best way to fill every heat with a Competitor.
If you select Split Divisions, the system will split not combine any divisions.
If you select Overlap Divisions, the system will combine divisions. For example if you had 10 lanes in a heat and have 4 Scaled and 6 Rx, the system will combine the 2 divisions into a single heat
SORT THE DIVISION ORDER
If you select Based on Divisions List Order, it will order your divisions based on the Division section, Based on the sample screenshot below, the sort order will be Rx - Men's will go first, Scaled - Men's will go second, and so on...
SORT COMPETITOR BY
*Rank (Low Rank to Top Rank) - This will position the lower ranked athletes to go before the higher ranked athletes within their division. For example, a Division of 30 people with 3 heats of 10. The bottom 10 will go first, mid 10 will go second and the top 10 will go last.
*Rank (Top Rank to Low Rank) - This will work in the opposite order of the above
Name (A-Z) and Name (Z-A) - This will sort athletes by their First Name
Randomize - Will randomize athletes in no specific order
*Sorting by Rank will only work if you have scores logged for your athletes. Make sure you have all scores in for an accurate rank display.
DO YOU WANT TO USE SWIM LANE ASSIGNMENTS? (TOP RANK POSITIONED IN THE CENTER)
This will position the best athlete of each heat in the center, and place the next rank on either side of that person as shown in the example below:
