Enabling SwimTopia Live Features is Easy!

SwimTopia Live is like having an Event/Heat board in your pocket. You’ll never miss another event!

If your team performs a few simple steps during a swim meet, the SwimTopia mobile app displays a live Event/Heat bar for your team’s parents. If the visiting team also uses SwimTopia, the Live Bar will appear on their mobile apps as well.

Enabling SwimTopia Live features for your team is easy:

  • Team admins assign a volunteer to update the mobile app with the current event and heat throughout the meet.
  • If the visiting team uses SwimTopia, share a subscriber code with their admin to activate the Live Bar for their team’s parents.

 

Users will know exactly which event and heat is in the water – which is really handy if you can’t see the pool from your volunteer position or you want to time your arrival at the pool.

If your team is using Meet Maestro™ to run your swim meets your team will also have live results updates and more. See other mobile app features available to Meet Maestro teams.


To Enable SwimTopia Live:

Before the meet

Step 1) Spread the Word

Be sure to tell your team members about SwimTopia’s free mobile app, available for iOS in the App Store and for Android in the Google Play Store.

Step 2) Assign a Volunteer

Create a job for “Event/Heat Updater” in each swim meet and let team members sign up for one of the easiest jobs at the meet.

Ensure the volunteer assigned has the necessary admin privileges. To access the Event/Heat Update area of the mobile app a team member must have either full admin privileges (denoted by a crown symbol in SwimTopia) or partial permissions to “Manage” Event Heat Updates.

To assign a team member partial permissions:

  1. Add a “New Role” called “Event/Heat Updater” or similar.
  2. Define the Role’s permissions by checking “Some administrative permissions”, then check “Manage” next to “Event Heat Updates.” Click “Create” to save the Role.
  3. Assign the Role to the volunteer signed up for the job by “Adding” them to the Role.
