    Getting Started
    Below is information regarding the required settings. Please note that there are no additional steps needed in TASSO beyond your normal setup procedure.

    GAME REPORTS (WINDOWS)

    After you've established your game in TASSO, open the Windows "Game Reports" program. This is where you will identify the game for which XML files will be sent and enter the necessary settings to direct TASFTP - telling it to send the XML game file (as opposed to HTML), where to send it and which event to apply the information to. Here are the steps:

    Live Setup Screen Example

    1. Click the Games List button in the upper left
    2. Select the appropriate game and click OK
    3. Go to the "Live" menu, select Live setup and enter/check the following:

      FTP SETTINGS
      Activate: Check
      GameTracker gameid: Enter the game ID number. The ID number is the six- or seven-digit number located in the GameTracker URL. There are two ways to find the ID number for a game:

        1. Mouse over the GameTracker link wherever it may be found on your site (front page event listing, schedule page, etc.). When you mouse over the link, the URL will appear in a window just above your task bar. Here is an example of what the URL will look like (a portion of the URL):

        http://www.gostanford.com/gametracker/launch?event=1003796

        2. Each partner has its own web page in which all GameTracker URLs created for a particular season are aggregated. You can find your URLs by clicking the appropriate link below and then clicking on your school code. If you are unsure of your school code, please contact your Manager.

      Auto–send FTP: Check (also check the XML option)
      FTP Site: ftp.netitor.com
      User ID: fanslive
      Password: Please check with your Manager
      Target directory: schoolcode/sportcode (ex: wake/w-fieldh)

      XML OUTPUT
      Enable XML stats feed: Check
      XML gameid: schoolcode (ex: wake)

      OTHER SETTINGS
      Show stats on screen: Check

    4. After entering/checking the appropriate information/boxes, click OK.

    After clicking OK, you will see your box score appear in the "Game Reports" window. Additionally, TASFTP will send the initial file that you have set up (the result of Activating). You do not need to "Initialize live files."

    You are now ready to go! After entering your first play, TASFTP will open in the background, move down to your task bar and then disappear once it's done sending the game file. You will also see your "Game Reports" box score update.
