Configure HyTek FTP Uploads

This article explains how to upload results from HyTek's Meet Manager to AthleticLIVE.

In order to upload FTP results from HyTek's Meet Manager, you'll need Meet Manager 4.0 or greater, an internet connection, and the Meet Manager Pro option, which enables multi-user mode and real-time results upload. To check if you have the Pro option, select HelpAbout from the menu bar within Meet Manager. If the Multi-User Network box is checked, you've got the Pro option. If you don't have the Pro option, see Uploading from HyTek without the Network plugin for a workaround.

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.

These settings will differ for each meet you time. If you don't want to have to update these settings every meet, consider using AthleticLIVE Local.

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 PreferencesWeb 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 F11 key 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!
