This ADAMS User Guide was designed to show you how to perform basic functions within ADAMS, step by step, in the most direct way. The individual sections are arranged in a sequence that follows a typical workflow.
Throughout this document, we have used fictitious names for all persons in our screen shots and examples. Any resemblance to real persons, living or not, is purely coincidental.
Please note, too, that some screen shots may appear different than in your installation due to browser settings and hardware configuration of your computer.

What's New in July 2020?

  • Prevention of duplicate athlete profiles creation: 

    Upon submission of the record, ADAMS will check for possible duplicates and either:

    -        Create the record

    -        Prevent its creation because of a high probability of duplication. In this case, the list of potential duplicates is displayed for selection by the user; should none of the suggested records correspond to your search, contact the ADAMS team at with the required information to request its creation.
