Overview

The purpose of Batching is designed to support Races to run in discrete waves whilst still combining all results together as part of the same Race. It is not there to allow you to use multiple devices for the same Race - it is for a very specific use case.


If you are looking to run multiple different races at the same time, please read about Race Options instead.


The example used in this help guide is as follows.


       A 1 mile time trial which has 4 waves. Each wave is fully completed before the next wave starts.


Timing

From a timing point of view, each wave is timed as its own Race. Therefore you run the app as a Timer on the device and records the finishers in their own finishing order. I.E. 1 through to 10.


Before you submit the Timings, you must assign a batch code. As this is wave 1, simply use 1!


The important thing is that this batch code has not already been used for this Race, and it must match the batch code used by the Finishers device.



This then gets repeated for each wave you run. The positions always reset starting back at 1 for each wave. And before submitting them, enter the new batch code.




Finishers

As per the timing, each wave is recorded as its own Race. Therefore you run the app as Recording Finishers on the device and records the finishers in their own finishing order. I.E. 1 through to 10.


Before you submit the Finishers, you must assign a batch code. As this is wave 1, simply use 1!


The important thing is that this batch code has not already been used for this Race, and it must match the batch code used by the Timing device.



This then gets repeated for each wave you run. The positions always reset starting back at 1 for each wave. And before submitting them, enter the new batch code.



Results Process

The Results Process screen maps each set of Timings against each set of Finishers and groups them by their batch code.



When you are editing any of these entries it is always relative to the batch.



Although each position number is effectively duplicated (For example, you have a position 1 for each wave) when the results have been finalised it will assign the correct overall finish position across the whole race.
