Title: Trial Results Spreadsheets???
Post by: quamashbcs@yahoo.com on June 14, 2012, 09:25:21 PM
I have been patently waiting for May trial results file to turn up on the yahoo group. Have you changed the procedure for results verification? Where should we look for trial results before they are incorporated into the official points history?

I see that my dogs points are already in their points history but I never got a chance to verify or not.

They are now being integrated right in with the main points file.

The main reason this wasn't done before was because of the amount of time it took to do this, and we wouldn't want to take the time to integrate points then have to change them after they got verified.   Now we have a bunch of handy code that does all the leg work.

So any new points will show up directly alongside your old points.

Even though the new points get merged right into your previous points, you still have 30 days after they are merged to verify them and contact trial secretaries if any results are incorrect.  We are preparing a new upload this weekend.

That sounds much easier for you guys!!! Is there any way to change the appearance of the Points History? e.g. to sort by date or by trial. It is hard to find recent things looking under individual titles. I have only got a few Qs this year so it's not such a big deal but some of the SuperStars must be struggling to read their files.....

Thanks, Frances

Will those "old" spreadsheets still be available to look at anywhere?  I liked looking through them to see how my friends' dogs did ...   :)

The easiest way is by accessing the member section and doing a search in there.   I made a video showing how to navigate that section and also do searches, which is pretty handy.

Otherwise you would need to download the points as a csv file and do it that way.    Which is sort of the point, trying to make the member section a 'bonus' area with better options

How do I know when they are merged, other than doing a point lookup on a daily basis? When are merges usually done?

Chris, that doesn't help much. Is there something that identifies the new topic that identifies an upload? Where is the most recent post indicating an upload?

The points list on the NADAC.com isn't going anywhere is it?

If you get notifications from this board it's quite helpful :)

Yes I postmark them all.  (Points uploaded-8-1-2012 for instance)

Isn't going anywhere.

And that point list is the exact same one as this site now.  For awhile it wasn't, they weren't linked.  But once we got comfortable with the new system they became linked so now any changes are immediate on the main site.

When you said "Points uploaded 8-1-2012 for instance" -- was that an example or were points updated on that date?

I'm still waiting for results from our trial in La Crosse, WI (Family Dog Center) on July 20-22.

Title: Trial Results
Post by: quamashbcs@yahoo.com on January 03, 2013, 07:39:38 PM
I am still very confused by the trial results issue. In a recent Premium it says go to the NADACforum and look in the Files section for the Trial Results which will be available for 30 days to view and make changes.

Where is the Files section?

Thanks, Frances

You can find your dog's points in your Member Section of this forum or via the NADAC web site.

I just looked at the member section. Harrie, 07-11150, is listed as having a height of 19".  She is 23" if it matters.

No, they go directly into the dog's point records.  You can still make inquiries and changes for another 30 days after they are posted.

So trial secretaries should revise their premiums accordingly?

All premiums should list the Reno, NV address in the premium.  The "club" should submit their aftertrial paperwork to the Bend, OR address.

This is what it says in the premium:

The individual trial results submitted by the club
are uploaded to the files section of the NADAC Forum at
www.nadacforum.com (http://www.nadacforum.com) list within two weeks after the NADAC office
receives them from the club.

There is no "files" section of the Forum as far as I can see.

Yes, you have your own "member section" that contains your dogs records that have been uploaded.

It would make more sense if the premium stated something like "go to the member section to check your points" rather than "go to the files section"

Point taken.  We haven't been having an issue, but that would help to make sure that we don't have any future issues.

But you don't even have to go to the Members section. It's right at the top of the page under "Points."
