CompHQ (download) First time use and Setup instructions


Download CompetitionHQ from v1.11.11 here

Updated 15-06-2017


First Steps

To get started with CompetitonHQ double click on the icon you have recently gained access to.


Some initialisation steps will occur and appear on screen. 

Once it opens you you will see the setting icon in the top right (the cog between the trophy and the minimise button) .



After you click the 'cog', you will then see the settings menu form appear, which will have a number of tabs across the top, each representing a different settings area. 


Note the General tab has some important settings to help you get the best display and upload of your results into ResultsHQ...focusing on the yellow arrows below in the picture...

1 - Recalculate positions in ResultsHQ after upload... this means that ResultsHQ will ignore your placings in CompetitionHQ and use its own calculations to determine 1st to Xth place regardless of count back placings etc

2 - Calculate positions by age/gender group...this means that if you enter results for a mixed age/gender group e.g. 6-7 boys and girls, then the applications will give you 1st - Xth for the 6 Male, 6 Female, 7 Male and 7 Female separately even though they are on the one screen. If you do not have this turned on the places with be set base on one 1st place to Xth encompassing all athletes, disregarding age/gender

3 - Use simple high jump results layout...if you only want to enter results for high jump as a simple height and then overwrite the place with your own place logic this is what your looking for...otherwise the high jump results screen will be the tick, cross and dash results entry height by height for live count back

    Nick, If we were to use competitionHQ to run our Eastern Riverina Zone Carnival how do we get a separate table space and login details and is there a cost? 

    Just looking at options whether we just run with the printouts from raceHQ for race timing and paper sheets from meet manager, print off the tickets with lane number, place and time then march them off to the recording shed for manual processing OR do we try and get all the competitors from the 8 different centres uploaded (seems fairly trivial to get them imported from a spreadsheet) and use competitionHQ.

    Any suggestions?
