SprintTimer Guide

The Results Manager

Start and result lists are shared by Photo Finish and Video Finish and can be found under Results. Start lists and results share the same data, i.e. results are a start list with times added. The Results Manager is a part of SprintTimer Pro, but you can still mark a finish with times without it.

A basic video demo of using the Results Manager can be found here ->

Creating a start list
To create a new start list go to Results:Start lists and tap Create in the top right corner. Set the name of the race. Also fill in heat and round if the race is divided in multiple heats. You then have two choices for adding competitors:

When you are done tap Save and go back. If you want to edit a list, just open the list, change what you want, and save.

Importing a start list
You can create a start list on a Mac or PC, in a spreadsheet (see blog post) or with a dedicated Meeting Manager software (e.g. EasyWare or SportsTracker). It could either be a CSV or a EVT file (more about formats below) and one file can contain several start lists/heats.

To import, go to Results:Start lists and tap Import at the top. This will open the iOS file browser. You can pick files from iCloud drive, and if you are running iOS 11, from other cloud services like DropBox and Google Drive. Pick a file and tap Save if it looks OK.

Alternatively, you can import a file by going to the Files app, tap Select in the top right corner and pick the file. Then tap the Share button in the lower left corner to show the apps that can open it. Choose SprintTimer and the file will be copied to the import page. Tap Save if the list looks OK. Through the Files app you can access files on iCloud, DropBox and Google Drive.

You can also Airdrop a CSV or EVT file directly into SprintTimer.

Finally, you can also copy and paste from a spreadsheet. Select all relevant data in the spreadsheet, copy and tap the "Import button". You will now get a question about pasting data. Note that the spreadsheet should be formated in the same way as for the CSV-file.(SprintTimer Pro)

Marking a race
After the race, tap the Mark button in the finish view. You will get a question whether to use a start list and which one to use. This will give you a pop up with names. Select the name in the list and tap Mark again. The result will be saved directly each time you mark a position or frame. You can update the result by marking a new position with the same name. You can sort the list on start number, name or time by tapping on the column head.

You can also choose to save a split/lap time by selecting a name and tapping Split. That time will NOT be shown on the image, but is be displayed in Results and will be exported in the CSV-file.

If you choose not to open a start list and instead mark the image/video with times only, or with lanes and times, a new start list will be automatically created.

Reset all your marks with a long press on the Mark button. You now can now choose a new start list if you wish.

Viewing and exporting the results
Start lists that have been marked with times appear under Results: Result Lists. Tap on a race to see the details.

The Export button enables you to share the results in many different ways. First choose the format:

After choosing format you will given a choice how to share the file: Email, save, copy, upload, open in other apps etc.

The results can also be exported directly after marking the finish by selecting CSV or LIF in the Save dialog.

iCloud Drive, DropBox, Google Drive etc
If you save to the Files app you can choose to save it as a local file or upload it to iCloud. You can also save directly to other cloud services like DropBox. Download the DropBox app and log in to your account. DropBox will then appear as an alternative when you save. The procedure for Google Drive is the same. This works best with iOS 11 or later.

You can delete a start and results list by sweeping left in either list view. If you want to delete many items, go to the start list view and tap Select. Then mark the races you want to remove and tap Delete. Note: Start lists and results lists are based on the same data, so removing one will remove the other.

File formats
You can create a CSV-file (text-file with extension .csv), e.g. with a spreadsheet. The first line in the CSV-file should contain the name of the race, plus heat and round numbers if needed. An event id (number) can also be added to indicate which heat that belong to the same event:
Race name, heat, round, event id

The consecutive lines should contain one competitor per line with the fields separated by comma, semicolon or tab in the following order:
Start-number, Lane, First name, Last name, Team

If you don't need all data you can leave some fields empty. To import multiple heats in one file, put a line with a # between the races (see blog post).

You can download an example file at sprinttimer.se/csv_test_import.csv
This file contains three heats, the two first with full data, the last with names only.

You can also import an EVT-file (Lynx event, text-file extension .evt) that many meet softwares can output. Information about the EVT and LIF files can be found at finishlynx.com
In short the .evt (start list) file looks like this (note the initial comma on the competitor lines):
First line: Event number, round number, heat number, event name
Consecutive lines: , ID, lane, last name, first name, team

The exmaple file formatted as evt can be downloaded at sprinttimer.se/evt_test_import.evt
