Adding new athletes to your database can be made in different ways. This article shows how its done by importing them from a text file – a Roster.
The format of the roster is shown below; Top line is just the header explaining the content of each column. The date of birth, body weight and height of the person is accepted in various formats and units as indicated in the template. If you enter a format that is not known to the system the person with the error will not be imported.
The purpose of the email address is only to create a unique person identifier. When importing from various rosters there is a risk that you end up importing the same individual twice or more. To prevent ending up with multiple registrations of the same individual, the software compare the email address and skip import if the person already exist in your database.
