  2. Sharing for people with other coaches (Deling af personer med andre trænere)

    Hi
    In the next update, could it be possible to share personal data with other coaches so that they can have access to the same database.
    Can you get the opportunity to import / download times from another device?
    (Forgive my google-assisted translation)

    Original Version:
    Hej.
    Kan der i den næste opdatering komme en mulighed for at dele sin persondatabase med andre trænere, således at de kan benytte sig af den samme database.
    Kan man få mulighed for at importer/downloade tider fra en anden enhed?
    Med venlig hilsen
    Bo

    Would it be possible to have two phones with this app share " a match/ training session/ event?
    That way you might have one watch start the event and another finish it.

  4. Add HS track events to the list of races. This would include events with multiple runners who run only portions of the race (relays).

    Examples:
    Distance Medley Relay, 4 runners, 1200m x 400m x 800m x 1600m.
    Sprint Medley Relay, 100m x 100m x 200m x 400m.
    4x100, 4x200, 4x400, 4x800, etc.

    So, adding the type of race to the list is easy; you can do it yourself in Settings, but that would just allow you to mark the type.

    I’ve thought about relays and I’m not sure how to connect multiple watches appropriately (from the user interface point of view). Any suggestions

    Not a bad idea, although I’m not sure how the UI would work.

    I’ve been thinking the next major release should add runner numbers (either entered or auto-generated) which would then let you say release 10 at a time.

  6. All lap

    Add “All lap”
    Scenario: several athletes in a interval training. They start the same time, you “lap” individually then all start again at the same time (all lap), then you “lap” individually, start again “all lap”

  7. Change the default list of sports to include:

    Please suggest any other races that should be included in the default list (or existing ones that don't make sense)!

  8. Auto stop when another starts

    It would be nice to set an option per race to automatically stop the current running watch whenever a separate watch is started. Take a relay for example. Runner A's time starts and runner B's time starts the moment the relay stick is passed. It would make it easier to just click start for runner B and automatically end runner A's time, versus starting B and then stopping A. B's start time should be A's end time.

  9. Create races by tapping on athletes inside people tab

    As a coach, it would be more natural in many cases to be able to open up the people tab and two a "create new race" button. I could then simply scroll through my athletes and tap each person that should be in the race. Alternatively, there could be a selection tool in the people tab that allows me to select multiple people. Once selected, a variety of functions would become available to do so,thing with the selected people. The function I'd like to see most would be "create new race from selected athletes". There could also be functions like…

  11. Voice recognition?

    Long race like 10,000 m - with many athletes on the track. Lap counting. I want to keep my eyes on the track and also hit lap splits. They all have hip numbers. Please add voice recognition. If I say "ten" into the phone then competitor number 10 just went by. Can you add voice recognition? Would be very effective to keep count of laps.

    Interesting idea. I’ve tried some experiments. Initial thoughts: constant voice recognition is not allowed, so it has to be with a button press. There’s also the problem that voice recognition is not 100% reliable, and asking for immediate feedback kind of defeats the purpose.

    What I’m thinking is to maybe tie it to the volume buttons. As now, press up for a lap, and down for a stop. But if you hold it down, then it will listen for a name or number. Then if it recognizes it, great; otherwise it remembers the voice and when reviewing the unassigned laps later, you can play back your own voice to help you assign it.

    Does that sound useful

    Assign startnumbers to the persons who compete in a race!

  13. Splits on Reports

    It would be great to have the option of including the splits on the reports

    Maybe I’m not understanding, but you can do just that now. The reports’ settings are separate from the Watches’, but you should be able to set the report to split, cumulative, or both.
    Menu>Settings>Report Settings>Lap Display>Splits

  14. Add qualifying auto sorting feature

    Great app. Would love if the auto-sorting had the option to sort by fastest time rather than the order they crossed the line. This would be useful for a qualifying session when fastest time is important, unlike a race session when order that competitors crossed the line is important.

  15. Preloaded races and runners?

    Nice app! Either I'm having trouble learning this app or it's missing a feature for me. I would really like to be able to have all of my runners loaded into their races and then just switch between races. Let's say once the 1600 is done I change the race type to 400 and all of my runner's watches are loaded and ready to start. Track meets move too fast for me to go to a group, tap add all watches, tap new race, and change race type.

    So, the “race type” is just an attribute of a race, not a way to create a new race.

    Instead, to get ready, you would go to the Group of runners, and hit “New Watches for this team”. Then specify “New Race” instead of “Add Watches”. This will create a separate race with that group. Set the race type and/or name, then do those steps again for the second race, etc.

    Then day of race, just go to the History tab, select the first race, tap on the title, and hit “Make Current Race”. After the race, do the same for the second.

    You can switch between races with “Make Current Race” as often as you wish. In fact, you can even track two (presumably long) races at once, as running watches will continue when the race isn’t “current”.

    FYI, I’ve implemented something to make this easier. Would you…

  16. Time a youth swim meet takes 24 parents 3 to each lane with stop watches

    Include a 10 keypad that would stop each lane and order it’s finish i.e. a swimming meet I think I could time most races by myself or greatly reduce the number of people required thanks Lon

  17. Hi, thanks for this great timing app!

    For road cycling time trials it would be useful to be able to add time between categories. For example, all cat 1/2 ladies start on 1 min stagger but when categories switch over to cat 1/2 men there is typically a gap left (anywhere from 2 mins to 10 mins)

  18. Swipe from group to group

    Hi Hugh, this is my favourate stopwatch thanks.
    Coming back to what I proposed under „all lap“, an additional feature could be that it is possible to switch from the stopwatches of one group to the stopwatches of another group by swiping horizontally and stop/lap separately.
    This adds minimal complexity to the user...no idea what it means for programming.

    Sorry; one of the libraries I use has many translations, so somehow this automatically marks it with all the languages that it covers. My apologies, but English is the only language currently.

  20. Separate out a runner from a group during a race

    Hi Hugh - another one:
    I have a group of athletes running in one race, interval (all lap) setting. One runner can’t follow any more and change to a slower program. I still would like to use the all start function….Would be ideal if I could take the slower runner out of this race in to his own without loosing his history.
    Maybe by dragging the stopwatch into a corner... don't know.

    Best,
    Stephan
