Database Properties

The Orion “Athlete Database” has two functions. First, to allow the user to keep a list of Athletes, Coaches, and Range Officers who frequently participate in your matches. Second, to track and analyze Athlete performance over time (this will soon migrate to the Mobile App).

The Orion database maintains a list of athletes and tracks these athlete’s performance over time. Who is added to the database is a matter of choice. While many users will only add team members, common visiting teams or other athletes may be added to this database for similar purposes.

There is only one database file for each licensed copy of Orion. The database will aggregate scores from many Orion match files. The competitors in a match may or may not be the same as the athletes in the database. When a athlete is added to a match from the athlete database Orion uses the information in the database as default values for the match competitor. Once a competitor is added to a match there is only a loose connection between the athlete in the Athlete Database and the athlete in the match.
