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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
