Ability to create custom contests

Post by ac5ez » 13 Apr 2017, 02:59

Hello Log4OM team,

I have used the custom "Award" feature. I created an entry for Texas State Parts on the Air (TSPOA) and it worked great this passed weekend.

My question is would it be possible or feasible to allow the creation of "User Defined Contests?" Every state here in the U.S. has a QSO party each year. A challenge is to work ALL states QSO parties. You have about 5 or 6 of the QSO Parties already listed in the contest table but, It would be nice if a user could build each states QSO Party and have the contest appear in the lookup table and also be able to tag each QSO with the contest ID.

Thanks for a great logging tool!

Already detailed in the user guide and I believe also in the YouTube videos

Options/select config tab

Check the 'Enable expert mode' box

Click on 'Contests'

Add the contests required

File - save

Click the options save 'Floppy disk' icon

Restart Log4OM
