TouchPad lets you add image banners to various reports. You can add advertising, team photos, or any image you can think of.

To start, click File > Report Banners in the main menu. You will see two tabs, described below.

Available Banners tab

Report Banners

This is where you upload and manage banners available to any meet in the system.

  1. To upload a new banner, click Add.
  2. Give the banner a unique name so anyone can identify it.
    Add New Banner
  3. Select the banner type. Make sure the one you upload is properly sized according to the type’s dimensions you select.
  4. Click Choose File.
  5. Navigate to the file you want and double click it, or click it once and click Open.
  6. Click Add. It will confirm it was added. Click OK.
  7. Repeat steps 2-6 for any additional banners you want to load.
  8. Click Close when finished.

You can click any column header to sort by that column.

To delete banners, select one or more and click Delete. Or click Delete All to do that.

Assigned Banners tab

After uploading banners on the Available Banners tab, click the Assigned Banners tab to choose which banners you want on which reports and events.
Assigned Banners

The banners listed here apply to the currently active meet only. They will get included in any TouchPad backup. If you switch to a different meet, or you restore a meet from a backup, you will need to select which banners to use for it.

  1. Click Assign Banner.
  2. You will see a list of all banners from the Available Banners tab. Click anywhere in a row to select it.
  3. If you select a Header banner type, choose the banner position, and on which report(s) to include it.
    Assign Banner
  4. If you select a One, Two or Three Column banner type, select in which events to include it, and in which position.
    Assign Banner
  5. Click Save. It will confirm you assigned it. Click OK.
  6. Repeat steps 2-5 for any additional banners you want to assign.
    • Tip: The last set of event selections will still be checked after clicking Save. This allows you assign different Banner Types, such as Two and Three column, to the same events. Click the ALL column header twice to quickly select all and then clear all selections if you want to select different events after saving.
  7. Click Close when finished.

You can click any column header to sort by that column.

To delete banners, select one or more and click Delete. Or click Delete All to do that.

Include banners on reports

You can currently include banners on three different reports.

  1. Heat sheets
  2. Psych sheets
  3. Complete Meet results

On the dialogs where you select report options, you will see two checkboxes: Include Header Banners and Include Event Banners (they will be disabled for reports that don’t use them).
Head Sheets dialog
Check one or both and the reports will include the banners you assigned. If you haven’t yet assigned any banners, it will let you know and you can click Yes to assign some.

IMPORTANT: Make sure to preview your reports before printing to make sure your banners look good.
