Once you have created a club account with the Bridgemate app, and your club computer has been successfully configured, event information and results are uploaded automatically. This article talks in more depth about the data upload for the current and past events.
Naming your event
If your scoring program supports the specifications of Bridgemate Control Software 3.0 or later, the name of your event is automatically shown in the Bridgemate app. If this is not the case, you can specify the name of your event in the session information window, which appears when you launch the Bridgemate system from your scoring program for the first time for this specific event. This window looks like this:
The default name of your event is "Bridge game" (if not specified by your scoring program). You can change the name by typing in the text field. The date and time fields are for the date of the event and the starting time. After you close this window, the event is automatically uploaded, and you can no longer change its name.
If this window does not appear when launching the Bridgemate system from your scoring program, you need to change the app settings in Bridgemate Control Software. Go to menu Tools -> Options -> App settings, and select the Show session information window at session start option.
Uploading missing information
Any event information or results that could not be uploaded during the game (for example because of a lack of internet connection), can be uploaded at any time during the event or after the event has completed. This must be manually initiated from Bridgemate Control Software. Go to menu Session - Upload session to Bridgemate. The following window appears:
Select which information you want to upload by selecting one or more of the options Sections, movement and players, Board scores, Hand records, or Rankings and board results, and click Manually upload data of selected session. The data is now uploaded to the Bridgemate app and any missing informatoin is added. If you want to mark the event as finished, select Close session and then click the upload button.
Uploading past events
It is easy to upload past events, which haven't already been uploaded, to the Bridgemate app. Just follow these steps:
- Start Bridgemate Control Software and open the Bridgemate score file (.bws file) of the event you want to upload.
- Click on menu Session - Upload session to Bridgemate.
- Modify the event name (if needed), and select all five options Sections, movement and players, Board scores, Hand records, Rankings and board results, and Close session.
- Click Manually upload data of selected session to upload the event to the Bridgemate app.
The event now appears in the list of past events on the Bridgemate app.
