The Sports Team Data source stores all kind of information of a single team. You need to add one source per team to your Sources Repository.

To edit the data for a team click on the action button in the lower right of the source.

Team Data Fields

Data Purpose
Name Long This is the full name of the team. It will be used in the layers wherever there is enough space.
Name Short This is the short version of the team name. Usually this is a abbreviation. It will be used in the layers wherever there is not enough space to display the full name of the team (e.g. in Sports Soccer Run of Play layer). If not entered it will fall back to the Name Long field.
Emblem The emblem is the logo of the team. It will be displayed in several layers next to the players name of the team name.
Primary Color The primary and secondary colors are used when drawing backgrounds (e.g. in Sports Game Title layer).
Secondary Color See Primary Color.
Column Names This is a list of keys (comma or tab separated) that will tell mimoLive what column holds which data. There are some predefined column names but you can add your own. (See “Specify The Data Columns” below)
Player List This table (comma or tab separated) contains the data for each team member. (see “How To Enter Team Data” below)
Lineup This field contains the starting line up for a team. It will be used in the Sports Lineup layer.

How To Enter Team Data

Usually you have stored the team player list in some kind of spread sheet application like Numbers by Apple or Excel by Microsoft. To copy the data from those apps you simply select the tables content, hit command-C, find the appropriate Sports Team Data source in mimoLive, open the Editor panel with the action gear and paste the content into the Player List data field with command-P.

The multiline text input filed is pretty small for all this data. Please click on the window button next to the Text field to get a large window which also can be resized.

Specify The Data Columns

Don’t forget to specify the columns of your data because mimoLive needs to know what they represent.

There are a couple of predefined keywords to use but you can add your own keys as well.

Keyword Description
playerNumber The players number. It will be used in the Sports Lineup layer ] to extract the players names. Required!
playerName The full name of a player. If not present it will be filled with playerFirstName + playerLastName automatically.
playerFirstName The first name of the player.
playerLastName The last name of the player.
playerAge The players age. If not present the age gets calculated from the birthday, see playerBirthdayMDY/playerBirthdayDMY
playerBirthdayMDY If there is a birthday field then the playerAge gets calculated and available to the layers. the “MDY” ending means that this field is “month/day/year” formatted.
playerBirthdayDMY If there is a birthday field then the playerAge gets calculated and available to the layers. the “DMY” ending means that this field is “day/month/year” formatted.
