When you click Draw heats, LiveHeats will build a full seeded heat draw based on your Division settings. Our heat draw builder has an automated progression template, that is based on the standard progression formats used in action sports events.
This article describes how to customise where athletes are progressed to within a round. If you'd like to configure which rounds different athletes are progressed to, from a round, see this article.
How to customise seeding, progression or advancement within a round
- Once your event is created, all athletes are in the seed list, and you have drawn the heats, go to the relevant division from the Event dashboard
- Each future round will display where all athletes from the previous round will be progressed to (e.g. "1st from Quarterfinal, Heat 2")
- To re-order these positions, use your cursor to select the progression position (e.g. 1st from Quarter Final Heat 1), and drag it over another position, to automatically swap it. See the video below for an example
Handy hint: it can be useful to use the "add athlete" button on a heat to open up some empty spots in a heat to make it easier to re-organise. These empties will disappear later once your athletes are in order in the heats
