Importing participants on your event have great benefits, depending on what you want to do. We recommend this as a post event function if you were looking to upload your on the day entries to have all your data stored in your one portal.
When you are importing participants, it is critical that you have clean, accurate data to ensure this works correctly. This includes ensuring that your column headers match the template exact (or as listed below), as well as having the exact fields match to anything that will link up in your set up - for example, your event categories, sub categories & award categories.
**Please ensure you use the 01/01/2017 (dd/mm/yyyy) format for dates; this may need to be updated in Excel by formatting those cells**
Once your list is uploaded, this cannot be reversed so highly recommend a check twice, cut once mentality to avoid having to go through an individually delete participants from the upload.
1. Upload your race numbers with either MS Excel (.xlsx) or MS Excel 2003 (.xls) format.
2. Column Headings (row 1 of the upload file) MUST match the exact column names listed below:
3. Maximum 41 columns can be included in the upload file.
You can also choose to download a sample template if you are unsure of how to go about setting this up.
When importing participants, upload your excel spreadsheet and click on 'upload'.
*Please Note - Upload may take up to 5-10 minutes, depending on how much data you're trying to import.
When you upload the participants they will be marked as paid.
