You can also go to a specific date by clicking the date on the mini three month calendar on the left hand side of this page.
Whereabouts Guide and Mandatory Categories
The steps outlined in the Guide will show you how to use ADAMS to submit your whereabouts and explain each of the requirements.
- You need to provide a mailing address.
- You need to provide the full address of where you will be staying overnight at the end of a particular day.
- You need to provide details of your competition schedule.
- You need to provide the name and address of each location where you will be training, working or conducting any other regular activity during the quarter.
- You are required to provide, for each day of the quarter, one specific 60-minute time slot between 06:00 and 23:00 where you will be available and accessible for testing at a specific location.
As you complete this information, a green check mark will indicate you have completed each section, or will identify what is missing.
Entering location information
- Click an existing entry on the calendar (or create a new one by clicking a date in the calendar, or by using the New button in the top right hand corner).
- Select an address from the drop-down list, or create one by clicking the New button next to the address field.
- In the Edit (or New) Entry pop-up, choose the relevant category (competition, overnight accommodation, etc) and select the start and end time for this location.
- If this is an entry that applies to other days as well, you can select the relevant days right away to save time.
- You can also attach a 60-minute time slot to a whereabouts entry at the same time.
- Click Save
- Repeat this step for each of the requirements set out in the guide.
Each new location (address) that you enter will also be stored in your Address Book so that these locations are available to you in the future without re-entering them. They will be accessible by typing the first few letters or from a drop down menu when you add an entry to the calendar.
Populate your calendar
As you add more entries, your calendar will begin to populate with each category highlighted with an icon or colour to illustrate what sort of entry it is.
On the lower left corner of the screen, you will also see a mini-calendar of the quarter. Each date in red indicates a day that is missing some required information.
By placing your cursor over this date, the calendar will indicate what information is missing for that particular day.
Submitting your Whereabouts.
Once the mini calendar no longer has any dates in red and the status bars of the whereabouts guide indicate you have met all of the requirements, you may submit your whereabouts information.
