To enable a multiple age group and a separate single age group for the same event type, you must add a Title to the multiple age group event, either when using the Roster web admin or through the .csv upload. This will signify that the multiple age group event is separate from the single age group event of the same event type.
This guide is divided into two sections:
Using Roster web admin
An example of the use case is as follows: the meeting has the following age groups and start lists in place for girls 100m: U12, U14, U16. Now, the organizer wishes to add additional female athletes across various age groups (e.g. Senior, U23, M35, etc.) into the meeting for the same 100m event type, and have these additional athletes run together. To do this, the organizer will need to create a separate, additional 100m event with a specified Title of their choosing, as mentioned above.
In this example, the new group is titled 'Multiple Group'. This new event will have the same age group as the event you just added from, in this example, U16. You can now change the Age group of the titled event to Multiple.
Now the organizer has separate 100m events for U12, U14, U16, and a Multiple age group event ('Multiple Group') where they can add athletes from any age group.
Using .csv upload
If using .csv upload to create both separate age groups and a multiple age group for the same event type, you must add a Title to each athlete in the multiple age group event in the .csv (see Add athletes from a CSV file guide for more details).
Recall that all athletes in any multiple age group event using .csv upload must have the same StartListID (see Setting up multiple age group events user guide for more details). For this special case, the same event Title is required to be applied to each athlete.
The following simplified .csv example illustrates this requirement. The meeting has separate 400m age group events for U12, U14, and U16. The organizer also adds a separate multiple age group 400m event with 3 athletes of differing age groups (Under 23, Masters 35, and Senior). In the .csv, all three multiple age group athletes have the same StartListID (4) and event Title (Multiple Group) for this special multiple age group event.
Once uploaded, the age groups and start lists appear as expected:
Note the age groups on the left, and the multiple age group start list shown in the main window.
If you do not add a title to the multiple age group event, a warning will pop up when uploading .csv on conflicting age groups for the same event type.
