Configure Track Result and Entry Uploads with MeetPro's Publish to Disk
This article explains how to upload results from MeetPro to AthleticLIVE for Track and Field meets using MeetPro's Publish to Disk features, which are faster and more reliable than using FTP. MeetPro's Publish to Disk feature publishes all reports to a folder you specify on your local computer, rather than uploading them to a web server via FTP. AthleticLIVE Local monitors this folder for changes and uploads any new reports to AthleticLIVE for publication.
Set the Publish to Disk Folder
In MeetPro, navigate to Interfaces Publish To Disk Setup.
In the dialog box that appears, select a location on your computer where you'd like to store your reports published from the meet.
Configure AthleticLIVE Local
Run AthleticLIVE Local, and access it from a web browser by entering
localhost:8150 into the address bar. Select your meet by using the Choose Active Meet button. Once you've selected your meet, scroll down to MeetPro Publish To Disk Settings and click on Edit . Enter the file path of the folder you specified in MeetPro.
SHIFTwhile right-clicking on the file, then choose Copy as path. Paste the file path into the text box provided.
On the MeetPro Publish To Disk screen, you'll need to select what data gets published.
Every time you perform an upload with MeetPro, MeetPro uploads all reports, not just the ones that have changed. For large meets, this can be quite a bit of data! In addition to lengthening the time the upload takes, uploading lots of data can lengthen the amount of time our system takes to sort through what is new data and what is not. Therefore, we recommend checking only Performance Lists (according to what you'd like to publish) before the meet. Once the meet begins, we recommend unchecking all other boxes and only checking Results.
- Set Gender, Type, and Relay to All.
- When uploading Start Lists or or Performance Lists, select All.
- When uploading results, select Scored if this is a scored meet. Select Complete if this is an unscored meet.
- Set Order to Publication.
- Session should be blank.
You may choose any report options that you like. Our recommendations are shown in the following screenshot.
Event Start Times
If you've configured your meet into sessions and added event start times, you can change the Order setting to Session and re-publish after your initial publish by publication order. This will show start times on all your events on AthleticLIVE. Once you've published via session order, return your settings to Publication Order for normal result uploads.
Also, on the Edit Meet page, you'll need to configure your MeetPro sessions. Be sure to match the session name exactly.
Configure Live Update
You can configure MeetPro to automatically upload results when certain actions take place. We recommend configuring MeetPro to upload results when you mark an event complete or score the event:
From the menu bar, choose Interfaces Live Update Setup.
- Under Interfaces, select FTP.
- Under Auto Update check On Scoring and On Marking Event Complete.
