Qualifier report generation

1. Before you start your events, make sure that for each one you select the appropriate qualifier type from the drop-down on the Setup page in Fencing Time.

ALSO make sure to enter BIRTH YEAR and MEMBER numbers for each competitor. You do this from the check-in screen.

Make whatever changes are needed and click ok.


2. When the last event of the day finishes, (make sure you have clicked “finish event” at the end of each event! They should be greyed out in the lefthand navigation rather than black once they are “finished.”) go to Reports > Qualification Summary Report.
