Configure HyTek FTP Uploads
This article explains how to upload results from HyTek's Meet Manager to AthleticLIVE.
Step 1: Enter Credentials
Open HyTek's Meet Manager, and then open the Run screen from the menu bar.
Once you're on the Run the Meet screen, choose Web from the menu bar.
Choose the Log-in tab, and then copy the FTP upload credentials from your Meet Details into the dialog box. Ensure that Do not Upload... is unchecked. Ensure that Enable F10, F11, and F12 from Run is checked. If your meet director prefers to publish performance lists, rather than heat sheets, check the Upload Performance Lists only box.
If you're using AthleticLIVE Local, then you should copy these settings directly from the main page on AthleticLIVE Local, rather than from your Meet Details page. See Introduction to AthleticLIVE Local and Install and Operate AthleticLIVE Local for more information.
Once all credentials have been entered, click Test Web Site Connection to ensure the connection is working properly. If the connection is functioning, you'll get a successful connection message.
Step 2: Configure Settings
Navigate to the Settings tab, and ensure your settings match the screen below. You can ignore the color settings.
Step 3: Preferences
We need to ensure that Meet Manager includes all the data AthleticLIVE needs in the reports uploaded to AthleticLIVE.
On the Run the Meet screen, select Preferences Web Real-Time from the menu bar.
Configure your settings to match the screen below. All items should be checked except for:
- Prior Round Results under Include in Heat Sheets / Performance Lists (this duplicates data that has already been uploaded and can slow the upload)
- Team Scores under Team Scores (AthleticLIVE auto-calculates team scores based on each result's point value)
- All Prior Round Results under Include in Results (this duplicates data that has already been uploaded and can slow the upload)
- Results by Heat/Flight and Compiled (AthleticLIVE will only display compiled results unless you upload heat-by-heat results using the
F11key in Meet Manager or you enable heat-by-heat results from FinishLynx)
That's it! You're ready to upload your results and entries to AthleticLIVE!
