TOUCHPAD: Feature Request Forum

Welcome to the Future of Swim Meet Management. TouchPad is used by 1,000+ swim teams to successfully run their swim meets. You will too. TouchPad’s intuitive, immense and proven feature set, with flexibility to create & run a meet as you need/expect, then report the results with any report you can imagine, will help you feel right at home.

How can we improve TouchPad?

  1. invite teams not on team unify

    Since we have multiple teams in our league that only uses HYTEK it would be nice to be able to use the online registration for teams not using touchpad by inviting them and allowing them to import their kids from hytek to the event and accept them or decline them. Or an easier way would be to let touchpad export meet files that can be imported into hytek

    • Select SwimOffice Time Standards to be used as Event Standards in TouchPad

      Users should be able to pick from a list of the time standards available on their SwimOffice site, then choose to apply those standards as Event Time Standards to the TouchPad meet. This will reduce the data-entry effort necessary to attach qualifying times to a meet structure.

      Users will need to be able to select the Standard, the course (only choose from those available with the standard), the specific cut (A, AA, B, BB), and then choose whether to apply as 'faster than or equal to' or 'slower than'.

      • Add the time improvement to the Labels for Personal Best report

        The Labels for Personal Best report in Touchpad is very helpful but would be improved by adding the amount of time dropped on each label.

            For now your workaround is to use Parallels to run Windows on a Mac. We are moving to a cross platform development tool which may make it possible to release a Mac version, but we do not have a time frame when this will happen.

          • Ability to add Logos for inclusion in Heat sheet/Meet program/psych sheets/Results Report

            Have the ability to upload at least 5 logos during meet creation to be included on Meet Reports. Should be included as a Footer Logo.

            • Combine more than two events together

              Ability to combine more than two events would be very helpful with dual meets.

              • Positive check-in event sheets to be printed per event

                Allow for positive check-in event sheets to be printed per event. Currently, the entire meet will be printed.

                • Ability to see BTN times on Enter Results main screen

                  • Records should be portable between different meets

                    Users should be able to enter records that may or may not directly match up to the current TouchPad meet structure. Records comparisons should be done against the Stroke, Course, Distance, Age, Gender of the meet results. They should not have to directly correlate to meet event number.

                    • display standards reached with event results

                      There is a deficiency in TouchPad compared to Meet Manager that a number of folks would really like to see...

                      Allowing the reaching of a time standard to be printed with the event results. While there is the ability to run results reports AFTER a meet in Swim Office, having the ability of swimmers to know they've reach a new standard cut off is missing.

                      For example, we have an individual championship meet where swimmers have to achieve a certain standard to participate. Hytek allows for the display of the standard next to finish times if that threshold is broken.

                      • Add IMX/IMR scoring

                        IMX scoring is a point based system on a scale of 1-1100. Athletes are given a score in each event based on the distance, stroke, course and their age.

                        Attached are a few reports showing the time to point increments for one event across a three year age span.

                        The online point calculating tool is available at: http://www.usaswimming.org/DesktopDefault.aspx?TabId=1484&Alias=Rainbow&Lang=en

                        Once given a score athletes can currently compare themselves to others athletes via DeckPass and the USA Swimming website.

                        More information is available at the USA Swimming page: http://www.usaswimming.org/DesktopDefault.aspx?TabId=1492&Alias=Rainbow&Lang=en

                          • Save Report Option Settings

                            Allow the functionality of savings your report option settings and be able to retrieve them from a pulldown menu. This would allow you to use a single report window for multiple purposes without having to check/uncheck all of the different options each time.

                                    We run meets for high school, middle school, summer league, and USA. The ability to set up sub-folder for each meet type would be helpful when setting up and looking for a meet. Many of these meets are run close together making moving back and forth a little confusing.

                                      • Ability to limit number of swimmers per team to advance to finals

                                        In a Trials/Finals Championship meet sometimes you may want to limit number of swimmers per team that advance to finals (some leagues have this rule, for example 4.
                                        Currently the only way to do this is to look at the prelims results and manually scratch the swimmer(s) that cause a team to have more than this maximum. Scratching a swimmer from one team could cause a swimmer from another team to exceed the limit - so keep your eyes open.

                                        • Printing Event Results

                                          Print results (under Enter Results)... The ability to review and score events and then print a range of events would be ideal vs printing one at a time.
