 ===== What is USEBIO? ===== ===== What is USEBIO? =====
  
-USEBIO is a standard file format for bridge data which is maintained by the EBU and used by several bridge organisations around the world. You don't need to know anything about it unless you'​re ​a programmer ​looking to support USEBIOand more information can be found at [[http://​www.usebio.org|www.usebio.org]].+USEBIO is a standard file format for bridge data which is maintained by the EBU and used by several bridge organisations around the world. It is an XML file and has the file extension .xml. If your file does not have this extension then you are probably not looking at a USEBIO file. You don't need to know anything ​further ​about USEBIO ​unless you are a programmer; if so, more information can be found at [[http://​www.usebio.org|www.usebio.org]].

 +**Casual warning**: if you submit multiple files at once, the order that they appear will not necessarily be the order you selected. It depends on how quickly our server reads and processes them. This is unlikely to be important, but if you're particular about keeping your session ID numbers sequential, you'll want to check the dates of each box so you know which one to submit first.
  
 ==== Checking the submission ==== ==== Checking the submission ====
  
-Each file you submit will create a new box at the bottom of the page. Here's one of our submissions:​+Each file you submit will create a new box at the bottom of the page. You may need to scroll down to see it. Here's one of our submissions:​
  
 {{ :​myebu:​checked.png?​nolink |}} {{ :​myebu:​checked.png?​nolink |}}
  
 +This contains the following information:​
 +
 +**Description** is a text field with a description of the event. It's a good idea to put something in here, especially if you run multiple events on the same date, so you can more easily identify your sessions later.
 +
 +**Session date** is the date that the session was //played//, not the date that the session is being submitted.
 +
 +**Format** is the format identifier of the event. You can't change this, but if it looks wrong then you might want to go back to your scoring program and check the settings.
 +
 +**UM Subscription Code** identifies what kind of event this is, and is used by the EBU to determine how much you will be charged for it. Please take a moment to check that this is correct because it can waste some time later on to fix this if you have been over- or under-charged. It may also affect things like magazine credits and NGS adjustments. A further explanation of the code you have selected can be found by clicking on the blue information icon.
 +
 +{{ :​myebu:​popup.png?​nolink |}}
 +
 +Please see [[http://​www.ebu.co.uk/​documents/​universal-membership/​player-session-rates-full.pdf|the documentation]] if you are unsure which code to use.
 +
 +**Sim Pairs** will only appear if the date you have selected matches the date of a Simultaneous Pairs event that you are registered for. If this session should be submitted to that event then you can leave this alone. If this is not intended for the Sim Pairs (perhaps you are running two events on the same day) then you need to choose //This is not a Sim Pairs session// from the dropdown menu.
 +
 +==== Resolve mismatches ====
 +
 +Below the session information you will find any **mismatches** that have been raised by the checking procedure, if there are any. The text that appears should tell you what the problem is, but the most common causes are that an EBU number was not given, or an EBU number was given but did not match the surname of the player. To resolve this, click on the red button to open a form like this:
 +
 +{{ :​myebu:​resolve.png?​nolink |}}
 +
 +Here you can search for this player by name or by EBU number. If an EBU number was supplied, it will do this search automatically for you. Any records you find will appear below and if one of them looks correct you just click on the relevant button to add that to your session.
 +
 +You also have the option to make someone a **guest** but it's important that you [[myebu:​guests|understand what this means]] before you select this. Guests get none of the benefits from being included in this session.
 +
 +If this is a brand new player you will need to create them through the [[myebu:​membership|membership tab]], either as a member of your club or as a //potential member//.
 +
 +==== Submitting the session ====
 +
 +{{ :​myebu:​done.png?​nolink |}}
 +
 +Once you have resolved any issues with the submission, the //Submit// button will turn green which means you can go ahead and submit it. It'll take a few seconds to save, but once it's done you should see it if you go back to the Sessions list and hit the refresh button.
 +
 +===== Deleting a session =====
 +
 +If you realise you made a mistake and you want to delete the session, this can be done by clicking on the session in the sessions history. At the top of the window you will see a //Delete Session// button. If you do not see the button that means you cannot delete the session - probably because it has already been processed for masterpoints. Please [[adam@ebu.co.uk|contact the EBU]] with the details of the session if you wish to get it removed.
 +
 +===== Dealing with Sim Pairs submissions =====
 +
 +Ideally, if you're submitting a Sim Pairs session you will mark this during submission, but you might forget to do this, or accidentally do this when you did not mean to. You can correct a mistake by clicking on the session in the session history and looking at the bottom of the page.
 +
 +{{ :​myebu:​remove-sim.png?​nolink |}}
 +
 +If this session should not be a part of the Sim Pairs, then click on the link //remove// and it will take it out.
  
 +{{ :​myebu:​add-sim.png?​nolink |}}
