The process causes the following actions to occur for the selected Bracket:


Individuals Events

  • The Archers scores are imported from the Ranking flights
    Note: Only archers with a score greater than 0 are included
  • The Archers are ranked based on the scores or rating, as selected above. Count-back information is used where scores are tied
  • Where "Manual Selection" option was chosen, an additional dialog is presented to allow selection of the Archers to be included.

     


  • The Matchplay tables are generated and first Round is populated.
    If any archers have a BYE round, they are automatically assigned the win, and are progressed to the next round


Teams Events

  • The total score from the individuals in the team is imported as the team score
  • The teams are ranked based on the scores, or the manually entered ranking if this option is chosen. Count-back information is used where scores are tied.
  • The Matchplay tables are generated and first Round is populated.
    If any teams have a BYE round, they are automatically assigned the win, and are progressed to the next round


If the Matchplay tables already exist, then the button will read [Regenerate Table] instead of [Generate Table].

In this instance, you will be prompted to confirm this action:


NOTE: ANY RESULTS ALREADY ENTERED WILL BE LOST IF YOU PROCEED.

This action cannot be undone, and results will need to be re-entered if you proceed.
