7 Editing Registrations

You can edit registrations on the local or server database. If you edit the registration from the local database, remember to synchronize so that those changes can be updated on the server.

7.1 Edit on Local Database

Changes to registrations on the local database immediately affect the brackets and publishing of registration list. However changes on the local database are not automatically changed on the server database, so you must perform a synchronization after your changes.

7.1.1 Making the Changes

To edit a registration on the local database:

    1. 1. Run the full version of the Administration software.
    2. 2. Click on “Registrations” tab. You do not have to be logged into the server to access this tab.
    3. 3. Double click on the registration from the table view to open the “Update Registrant” window. Alternatively, click on the registration once and then click on the “Edit” button located at the lower right.
    4. 4. Make changes to the registration as required. If you are changing the category configuration, see Section 3.2 for details on how to configure the category.
    5. 5. Click on the “Update” button to submit your changes and close the “Update Registrant” window.

7.1.2 Saving and Synchronizing

Don’t for get to “Save” your changes after you’ve completed editing the registrations and before you leave the software. If you do not save the local database, you will lose the changes you made to the registrations. You can save the local database by clicking on the big “Save” button at the top of window or answer “Yes” when prompted just before exiting the software.

If you want to ensure that the server database receives your changes to registrations, perform a synchronization. See Section 2.3.1 for instructions on how to synchronize the local database with the server database.

7.2 Edit on Server Database

Changes to registrations on the server database are immediately available to you from anywhere on the Internet. However, they do not affect the brackets and publishing of registration list. You must perform a synchronization or reload after your changes to download the changes to the local database before you can update the brackets and data in the publishing functions.

7.2.1 Making the Changes

To edit a registration on the server database:

    1. 1. Run the full version or web version of the Administration software.
    2. 2. Log into the server. Click on “Server” tab if you are running the full version.
    3. 3. Click on the word “Tournament” on the left side of the window. This displays the list of events associated with your login account on the right side.
    4. 4. Click on the event once to select it.
    5. 5. Click on the word “Registrant” on the left side of the window. This accesses the list of registrations for the selected event on the right side as shown in Figure 25.
    6. 6. Double click on the registration from the table view to open the “Update Registrant” window. Alternatively, click on the registration once and then click on the “Edit” button located at the lower right. Ensure that you are viewing the “Approved” list.
    7. 7. Make changes to the registration as required. If you are changing the category configuration, see Section 3.2 for details on how to configure the category.
    8. 8. Click on the “Update” button to save your changes on the server and close the “Update Registrant” window.

7.2.2 Synchronizing and Reloading

When you submit a change using instructions in Section 7.2.1, the changes are immediately changed on the server so you do not have to do anything else before exiting the software. The changes are immediately accessible from other locations on the Internet. If someone else is accessing the registration list on the server at the same time as you are making the changes, they must frequently click on the “Reload” button at the bottom to access the latest data from the server.

If you want to the changes that you make on the server to be updated on the brackets or published registration list, you must first download the latest database from the server. You must also re-publish or re-print the bracket or registration list for the changes to be seen on these items. See Section 2.3 for instructions on how to synchronize or reload the local database with the server database.
