The following presents more details and screenshots relevant for the Swiss Golf Network and also for Swiss Golf(Swiss Golf Association).
Swiss clubs that upload only to Swiss Golf can also consult the Tournament on the Internet - International page.
The Internet button and its function.
Find the button in the main mask of the tournament; pressing it opens a new window where you define when and which information and registration opportunities are to be released at Swiss Golf Network.
The Information tab shows which tournament information should be uploaded on the Swiss golf network.
The Categories tab defines which groups are allowed to register for the tournament.
You can also directly select AG30 or AG50.
Here you can define the desired registration restrictions.
HINT: These settings apply to both online and on-site registrations. While the internet registration is only possible if all the preconditions are fulfilled, the on-site registration allows for exceptions after the secretariat confirms accepting those exceptions.
The tab Number of Players can be used for setting the accepted number of golfers as well as the number of online registrations. Waiting lists are not supported by Swiss Golf-INTRANET (as of September 2017) The number of people on the waiting list is only available with PC CADDIE://online Tournament.
Make as little as restrictions as possible here. The handicap limit from the tournament main mask is transferred directly into this screen, and can be processed here. Be extra careful to ensure that the necessary fields are correctly filled. PC CADDIE transmits exactly the information which has been stored.
The settings can be easily copied from previous tournaments using the function. Make sure you update the deadlines in relation to the tournament date, that is, the date is taken from the source tournament and adjusted according to the current tournament date.
After the settings are made, conform with OK and start the synchronization by pressing the DGV/Swiss Golf/ÖGV button.
Clicking on the button (menu Internet, tab Functions) opens the default PC CADDIE Word document, which can be used or adapted as a template for the tournament invitation.
This document is individually created for each tournament and stored in the main PC CADDIE directory, under HTML. The main reason for this is to keep a standardized format for the documents and to have them ready for printing at any time.
A player can register online for joining a club or a tournament. For doing this they need to provide their association registration number and password. This data is available for the corresponding club.
If the registration is successful, the data is saved in the tournament buffer during the next Intranet synchronization, and can be aded to the tournament data directly from there.
The information when and how a person has registered for a tournament can be found pressing the blue “i” from the same line with the person’s name.
In addition, an entry in the CRM\DMS is created.
Both the start and the results lists can be published online. Click on Print in the tournament mask or select the corresponding option in the Competitions menu. The following window opens:
Press the Internet button to open the upload settings. At this point, PC CADDIE will check the guests’ handicap, if this was not previously done.
The following dialog offers you multiple options:
PC CADDIE now creates an HTML/XML file which will be uploaded to the Swiss golf network after you press the Transfer button.
HINT: Alternatively, you can edit the list as an Excel or Word file.
After you click on the Transfer button, PC CADDIE will ask whether the SMS should also be directly sent (the SMS contains the start time info or the results list).
We differentiate between the SMS-Abo, closed between the golfer and the Swiss golf network and the additional PC CADDIE module for the sending SMS, for which the costs are supported by the club.
After sending the SMS, you can define the time for the online publishing of the corresponding list:
HINT: We recommend entering a later date for the results list, so that the results can be seen only after the ranking list is made public.
If the transfer is successful, the link to the respective list appears on the Swiss golf network’s page for the corresponding tournament.
In Switzerland, you have the possibility to define the time when the start and the results lists should be published in the intranet Information System (IIS) for each tournament.
Click on the „Tournament“ link in IIS, and then on the desired tournament’s name. Scroll down until you see the form presented in the following screenshot.
