Selecting Site-Manager Site Templates

← Back

Synopsis

With the introduction of the TopYacht Tool-box, several additional options become available to TES users.

These include

  • web access to a clickable Results Matrix (that permits the online examination of any race in an event)
  • Scrolling Screens which automatically scrolls through all the day’s racing results
  • A “Tool Box” for on-line handling and display of protest outcomes, protest time limits etc.

These new facilities require additional TopYacht Site Index templates.

The traditional template produced just a picking list of the series. In the TopYacht environment, this template remains the selection default.
