Setting Event and Point information on your controllers keeps controllers and their data organized and distinct from one another. This helps to avoid confusion that may lead to streaming the wrong data to an Event or Point within CT Live or other scoring software. Setting event and point names on Controllers a day or two before your event also helps to speed up the Streaming process.
Remember that changing the Event OR Point name on a controller will create a new Session of data. You should never change the event or point name while athletes are crossing the timing lines during a race unless your intention is to create a new data session.

- From the main screen of ChronOS, tap either the Event or Point name. This will take you to the Race Ops > Controller menu.
- Tap the Event name or Point name to change it. You can save a little time by tapping the X next to the Event or Point name fields which will clear out the existing values, allowing you to immediately start typing in the new values. You can also tap the button with the ellipsis points to choose either 'START' or 'FINISH' as the Point name.
- A keyboard will appear with the Event or Point name at the top. Use the keyboard to change the name to the desired value, then click Save to the right of the space bar. The change will go into effect immediately.
NEVER include a space in an Event or Point name. Names should always be in ALL CAPS.
