Once a meet is setup in ClubLANE, administrators are able to set date limitations of when members can enter. Entering these dates into ClubLANE will prohibit competitors from entering before entries are officially opened and after entries are officially closed.
Before you begin:
Before setting up the entry dates of your meet, the following needs to be completed in order for members to access online entries:
- Set up your meet in ClubLANE (Instructions)
- Publish the meet on your club’s APT website Calendar (Instructions for APT websites only)
- Set up the meet to accept online entries (APT website Instructions) (Non-APT website Instructions).
If the above steps have been completed you are now ready to set the meet up to automatically open and/or close online entries.
Set when meet entries automatically open and close:
Log in to ClubLANE and click on Meets from the top menu bar.
Select List of Meets from the Meets drop-down menu.
Locate and click the Meet Title of the meet you wish to set the Entry Start Date & Entry Start Times for.
Select Edit on the Details tab to display an editable version of the Main Details of your meet.
Locate Entry Start Date within the Dates box.
Enter the date your meet will be open to receive online entries in the format of dd/mm/yyyy or
Click on the Calendar to the right of the Entry Start Date and select a date from the calendar.
Enter the Entry Start Time your meet will be open to receive online entries on the day. The Entry Start Time MUST be in 24 hour time format, ie 13:00:00 (1 pm).
If your entries are open from the date you create the meet, then enter the Entry Start Date as today, and the time as the time of completing the entry date set up process.
Enter the closing date and time in the Entry End Date and the Entry End Time fields respectively, so that entries automatically close after this date and time.
Your Meet will now automatically open & close at the times you specified the meet was available for online entries. Members will not be permitted to enter online outside of these dates and/or times.
The Enter button will only display on your meet detail page within these specified times.
