Cross Country Scorer

Cross Country Scorer is a free Google Sheets Add-On that makes it easy to score a cross country meet. All you need is to populate a Google Sheet with all of the athletes in finishing order with their team names, and the Add-On does the rest! The app will only read in one column of data that you choose (the column of team names for each participant in finishing order), and then outputs the scores for each team. No more scoring meets by hand and making a mistake!

This Add-On uses the following scopes, and you will be asked to give this app these permissions when installing it:
Scope Description Usage in Add-On
.../auth/spreadsheets.currentonly View and manage spreadsheets that this application has been installed in This scope allows the Add-On to interact with only the spreadsheet this Add-On is applied to. The Add-On cannot view or edit data in any other spreadsheets.
.../auth/ See your primary Google Account email address I believe all Google Add-Ons are granted this scope of access, although I don't use it in my code in any way
.../auth/userinfo.profile See your personal info, including any personal info you've made publicly available Once again, I believe all Google Add-Ons are granted this scope of access, but I don't use it.
.../auth/script.container.ui Display and run third-party web content in prompts and sidebars inside Google applications I use this scope to generate a sidebar that you can see in your spreadsheet after you run my Add-On. The sidebar gives you options to configure the Add-On, such as selecting a column to read data from and how to apply the scoring rules.
