Points Tables

OrgPro provides complete flexibility in awarding of points. One of the most common methods of awarding points is points tables. Points tables can be single row, in which case the number of entrants in the class is not factored in. They can also be multiple row, in which case the number of entrants is used to determine the correct number of points to be awarded.

There are two types of tables, Table By Name, and Table By Division And Rating. These two table types can accommodate any table based point system.

There are some differences between tables for Hunter Jumper and other breeds/disciplines, the reason is that divisions and ratings are clear cut for Hunter Jumper and not clear cut for other breeds/disciplines. Also Hunter Jumper tables have columns to specify additional points for champion and reserve and for other breeds/disciplines these columns do not exist.

The Points Tables Dialog

Table By Name

Tables by Name are just that, tables that you create and assign a name to. You use Tables by Name when you don't require the extra flexibility of a Table by Division and Rating. For many organizations, one or two Tables by Name will be all they need to set up the foundation for their points system. Other organizations may use several Tables by Name and/or Tables by Division and Rating. The key point here is that any increment or straight points system can be accommodated by these tables.

Click the New button to create a new Table

Enter Table Name

If the Table by Name tab is currently selected, enter an appropriate name for your points table. It's just a label, it doesn't matter what you call it.

Table By Division And Rating - Hunter Jumper

Division/Rating Dialog

If the By Division and Rating tab is selected, select any combination of divisions and ratings that you want the points to be determined by this particular table.

Table By Division And Rating - Non Hunter Jumper Breeds/Disciplines

Table By Division / Rating Not Hunter Jumper

For other than Hunter Jumper Breeds/Disciplines you will have created your own divisions and ratings, which might look something like what is displayed to the left.

Table By Division / Rating Not Hunter Jumper 2

To create your table you must name it and select at least one division and one rating. Typically several or all divisions will be set to one or more ratings.

If you find yourself assigning all divisions to all ratings then you'd be better off using a table by name because table by names simplfy your points processing - there is no need to set ratings on classes.

New Row Button

To create a new row in your table, click the New Row button.

Table With New Row

The Low range of the first row defaults to 3 but you can set it to anything you like. Usually 3 entrants are required in a class for points to be awarded.

Set the High range for the row. For a straight points system set the high range to 999 and create only the one row.

For Hunter Jumper you have the option to set points to be awarded to the Champions and Reserve champions of the section at the show. For other breeds/disciplines, as mentioned earlier, these columns do not exist.

The final step is to set the points to be awarded for each place.

A complete points table might look like the table below. This particular table will not award points for championships at the show.

Completed Points Table

The above Table By Division And Rating introduces another feature, a Trigger. In your points system there is a concept, Special Class Handling that allows you to award different points than normal for special classes for example "Classics" or "Derbys". These are triggered off of a term in the class name like the aforementioned "Classic" or "Derby". The need could arise to differentiate a normal Table By Division And Rating from the one to be used for the special class, you do this by entering the same trigger on the special table that you used on the special class handler. In other than this special case the trigger is blank.
