Select the correct round of your competition by tapping menu button ("stack of pancakes" button) in the upper right corner.
Click on Start to begin your task.
| Select race
Before you start timing, be sure to select the correct race. Tab the menu button ("stack of pancakes" button) in the upper right corner. A race list will slide out. The name indicates the category name and the number (in brackets) shows the run number (when applicable).
Starting a competitor is easy. By default the first to start is shown in a light-green bar just above the green start button. Tab the start button once as the athlete crosses the start line. A running time will be visible behind the name and an small arrow will be shown in front of the athletes name. Tab the arrow to confirm the time and send it to the server.
Note: In a mass start competition, the races will be shown instead of the individual athletes. The procedure to start a race is the same as for a individual start.
| Starting another athlete
If you want to start another athlete, first deselect the selected athlete by tapping on the name once. The green marking will disappear. Then select a new athlete, again by tapping on the new athletes name. You can start in any order you like, and change to different races if you want to during the competition.
| Starting multiple athletes at the same time
It is possible to start multiple athletes at the same time. This can be useful in group starts or for example in paralel slalom.
Just tap on the names you want to start, they will all be placed in a green banner and will all receive a timestamp when tapping on the start button. Do not forget to confirm all started athletes.
| Did Not Start
If an athletes did not show up at the start, he or she can be taken of of the start list. To do this, swipe across the name of the athlete from right to left. An orange DNS button will appear. tap on this button and the athlete will be taken out of the start list for this specific round, run or heat. Please note that the athlete is not taken out of the competition complete, and will appear in the start list for the next lap.
| Made a mistake?
If you tabbed the start button by accident or selected the wrong athlete, do not confirm or send the time to the server. Swipe across the name from right to left.
Tab the orange button to reset the time.
Tab the red button to re-assign this time to another atlete. A list of athlete within the same catogery wil be shown to pick from. Tab on the name of the correct athlete.
| A re-run
It is not possible for the starter to re-start an athlete. The race manager has to clear an athlete for a re-run from the race dashboard. Once an athlete is given a re-run, he will appear in the start list again.
It is important to practice these scenario's prior to the race. It's always more difficult when the real race starts. Always remember, the starter determines the pace of the race. Do not not hurry!
