While it is still available for use, we have discontinued additional enhancements to the Touchpad tool. That said, it is still supported by our Customer Support team by way of setup questions, meet questions, entry questions, and general usage questions. If you run into any issues with the tool, please let us know.

TouchPad can use unlimited records groups in a meet, where each records group has a top time for each event in the current meet. The process is as follows.
If you have a records group used in prior meets, import it.
After the meet is finished, print a Records Broken report (in Meet Results screen) to see which records swimmers have broken in this meet.
Use that report to update those records on this screen.
Export the records group for use in future meets.
Pull up the Event Records screen by clicking the Events menu, then clicking the Event Records button in the upper right.
A. Add a records group
Fill in the fields under Add a Records Group, then click Add. You will then see a row where you can enter a record for each event in the grid below.Short Name — The name used to identify the records group that will appear on the Records Broken report.
Display — The order in which the group appears in the dropdown selector below.
Course — Y for SCY, L for LCM, or S for SCM. This is read-only and automatically set based on the course type of the current meet.
Record Type — Designates the scope of the records group. It has no effect other than informational.
Description — A more detailed name for the group.
Check one or more boxes, then click Export Records Group to save the selected group(s) to use in other meets or share with others.
Click Delete in any row to delete that records group. Note it only deletes the group in the current meet; it does not delete it in other TouchPad meet nor any exported files.
You may edit the following fields in any records group row: Short Name, Record Type, Description.
