Below are details about colors found within Meet Manager for Swimming 5.0 (SWMM5).

Heat Number buttons on the Run Screen
  1. Gray: The heat has entries without results
  2. Green: The heat has results for every lane/position and there are no problems
  3. Red: The heat has results for every lane/position, but there are problems with one or more lanes
  4. Blue: The heat is the selected heat and there are either no results in any lanes or there are full results with no problems
  5. Yellow: The heat is the selected heat, has full or partial results, but there are either problems with one or more lanes or one or more lanes are missing results
Heat Grid - Times
  1. For quick viewing, the times in the result column in the heat grid have a blue font and the column header is bold blue
Run Menu
  1. Within the Run menu, the following buttons are shaded for better visibility since these three buttons are used so often
    1. Get Times
    2. Race Number
    3. Score
Timing Console
  1. For easy identification, the following buttons have blue lettering with the pool 2 name
    1. Get Times
    2. F3 Timer 1
    3. Ctrl-F3 timer
Lane Malfunctions
  1. The lane malfunctions feature is primarily used with Timing Consoles to send backup times to MM, as follows:
    1. CTS 5 (software version 3.1 or later)
    2. CTS 6
    3. Daktronics 6000 and 2000
    4. Omega ARES 21 Bi-directional
  • Note: For additional details, refer to the Timing Adjustments article

When a lane has a bad pad touch and backup buttons are used, MM notifies the user anytime the pad time is .31 or more seconds different than the Official Backup Time. The Official Backup Time is the middle button time if there are three buttons, the average if there are two buttons, and equal to the button time if only one button is used. Below are additional details about colors:
  1. Yellow: An Official Backup Time that is 0.31 or more "faster" than a pad time - a "y" displays in the far right column of the Run Screen
  • Note: This indicates that there may have been a late touch
  1. Blue: An Official Backup Time that is 0.31 or more "slower" than a pad time - a "b" displays in the far right column of the Run Screen
  • Note: These lanes default to being unchecked for use since these often times will not be adjusted
  1. Blue: If there is a pad time but no Official Backup Time
  • Note: This indicates that one should check the watch time for that lane to confirm that the pad time is a good touch
  1. Green: If there are two backup times and one is within 0.30 seconds of the pad time, one is more than 0.30 seconds from the pad time, and the Official Backup Time (the average) is more than 0.30 from the pad time - a "g" displays in the far right column of the Run Screen
  • Note: These lanes default to being unchecked for use since these times usually will not be adjusted due to the inaccuracy of the two button times
  1. Pink: Any backup time that is more than .30 different from the pad time
