Catapult OpenField utilises the traditional SportsCode exported XML Edit List. This file can be exported from your SportsCode software by selecting the timeline (and specific timeline instances) and exporting as a single XML file. Once exported, this XML file needs to be copied to your OpenField laptop.
Note: When using SportsCode, your coding window must include a ‘Start’ code. This ‘Start’ code MUST be selected at the beginning of each period (e.g. 1st half; 2nd half). This will enable SportsCode to be correctly aligned with the periods created in OpenField.
