Details such as name and start time of the event can be entered in the Setup tab. This information will be shown in reports.
It is possible to add three different logos which will be shown in reports. See Logos for details.
There can be multiple classes in a single competition. They are managed in the Setup tab.
Click Add to create a new class.
Enter the name of the class and select a hill.
- Unused bibs
The number of bibs which should be reserved and left unused when assigning bib numbers. These bib numbers will be free to use for late entry athletes. See Unused Bibs for details.
Unselect this option if athletes in this class should not be ranked.
|The + button in the popup can be used to quickly create a new hill.|
The starting order of classes can be specified for each round in the Classes tab.
First select a round. Then select a class in the list, and use Move up and Move down to change the class order.
By default, changing the order in one round will change the order in all other rounds. To allow the starting order to be specified individually for each round, unselect Same class order for all rounds.

When a new competition is created, three rounds will be added automatically: Trial round, 1. round and 2. round. These can be renamed or removed.
New rounds, such as training or qualification rounds, can be added by clicking Add. Use the buttons Move up and Move down to change the order.
Only rounds marked as Counted will count towards the final results. Trial and training rounds should normally not be counted.
Style points can optionally be disabled in trial rounds. This affects to-beat calculation and the behavior of live ticker/speaker panel.
Start times can be set individually for each round. These start times will be shown instead of the competition start time when creating reports.
Athletes in a competition are managed in the Athletes tab. Athletes must be registered in the database before they can be added to the competition. See Athletes.

3.2. Import and Export
Both hills and athletes can be imported and exported using comma-separated value (CSV) files. These files can be modified in other applications such as Microsoft Excel.
Import and export functionality can be found under Data in the menu bar.
When importing data, you will be asked about overwriting existing data. This affects how changes in data are imported for existing hills and athletes. Select Yes to overwrite any existing data. Select No to manually pick which changes should be imported.
|Hill names are used for matching existing hills. FIS codes and athlete names are used for matching existing athletes.|
4. Ski Jumping
Athletes marked with Late entry will be assigned the first available bib numbers in their class.
Marking an athlete with License means they have paid a participation fee. This will be visible in some reports.
The number of unused bibs specified in the class list in the Setup tab affects how bib numbers are assigned. Before bibs are assigned to athletes in a class, the corresponding number of unused bibs for that class will be skipped.
For example, if a class has 5 unused bibs, the first athlete will be assigned bib number 6. The first 5 bibs will be reserved for athletes potentially being registered later.
Navigate to athlete data.
Replace athlete keeping the results.
4.2. Officials and Judges
Information about officials and judges can be entered in the Officials tab.
This information is hill-specific, and will be shown in reports. Use the Copy and Paste buttons to copy information between hills.

4.3. Ranked Starting Order
By default, athletes start in the order of their bibs. The starting can also be based on results from the previous round, meaning the athletes with the most points will start last in the round.
To enable this behaviour, select Starting order by rank in the class list.
|This option is not available for unranked classes.|
4.4. Gate Compensation
To enable gate compensation, base gates must be entered in the Classes tab. Base gates can be set individually for each class in different rounds.
A gate factor must also have been registered for the corresponding hill in the Hills menu. This value is multiplied with the gate difference to calculate gate points.
Automatic Gate Input
When jump data is entered in the Jumping tab, the gate is automatically set to the gate of the previous jump. The base gate is used for the first athlete.
Ignore Gate Points
Gate points can be ignored manually for specific jumps. This is done by right-clicking the gate input field and selecting Ignore gate points. The color will change to red, indicating the gate being ignored. The gate value will be crossed out in result lists. Right-click again to stop ignoring.
The number of qualified athletes can be selected in the Classes tab.
Qualification can be used in multiple rounds. For example in the first round after a qualification round, and in the 2. round.
Qualification must be enabled in settings.
Qualification is not available for unranked classes.
