Navigating Through Your MIST Account
Once you have signed into your MIST account you will notice a task chart on the bottom under the My Tasks heading. Again, this chart will differ depending on your role on the team (competitor, Registrar, or coach). As you complete each task, the red “x” under the completed?column of the chart will become a green “check”. To complete each task you can click on the task name.
There are various tabs at the top of each page. The “Home” tab will return you to the task chart. The “Team” tab will allow you to see all individuals registered for your team. The “Registration” tab will give competitors a summary of the competitions which they are signed up for.
Registrar creates the team and invites team members and coach to the team.
STEP 2: The coach, Registrar, and competitors all need to join the team.
Once the Registrar has completed Step 1 the team has been created and all team members and the coach have been invited. The next step is for all invited individuals to create a username, if they have not yet done so, and join the team. This can be done by clicking the task Join a Team under the task chart. Registrars need to approve or deny each individual who joins the team. Click on the “Teams” tab on the top of the page. Here you will be able to view any pending applications. Once the green check appears next to this task on the task chart this step has been completed.
STEP 3: All competitors need to register for competitions.
Once you have joined the team, it is time to register for your competitions. (If you are not a competitor, you must be registered as a guest through your registrar.) The coach does not need to complete this step. You can register for competitions by clicking on the task Register for Competitions under the task chart. Pick the competitions you will be competing in by choosing it from the appropriate drop down menu. Make sure that your team is on the same page when it comes to who is competing in what. Remember that only two individuals per team can compete in any given competition other than group projects and Islamic Scholastic Bowl. After two individuals have signed up for a competition from your team, the system will not allow you to register for that competition. You may make changes to the competitions you are signed up for up until the team registration is sent to the coach for approval by the Registrar (Step 7).
