Compatibility

The App in compatible with any device with a modern browser. If the App is not run locally, an Internet connection is required.

Browsers that have been tested: Recent versions of Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Microsoft Edge. Not compatible with Internet Explorer 9 or earlier.

Results validation

  • Horizontal jumps and throws: English or Metric marks only. Other accepted marks: P, -, F, X, ND, or DNS.
  • Vertical Jumps: English or Metric units in progression only. Other accepted marks: X, O, P, -, NH, or DNS.
  • Wind Measurements: Metric units only (M/sec). Two to 4 digits accepted. e.g., -0.9, .4, 3.2, etc. Plus sign "+" should not be entered.

Troubleshooting

The App uses HTML5 localStorage to save all typing in the local browser. This feature provides the ability to store form input values even if the "Save" button hasn't been clicked before a browser session is ended. This means that the results stored in localStorage is still there even after a user has closed the browser, deleted their cookies, lost Internet connection, or turned off their laptop or device.


To retrive unsaved results: After establishing an Internet connection, restart the browser. Go back to the flight with the unsaved information. The unsaved information should still be in the form input boxes. Click the "Save" button. Once the results are saved online, all localStorage for that form is removed.
