Release Notes

September 25th, 2020 – RaceDay Scoring v2.1.26

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue for local only races causing ages to not calculate if you only provide Date of Birth..

Fixed an issue requiring question responses like emergency contact info when importing from a spreadsheet into a RunSignup registration Race. We no longer require responses when importing via a spreadsheet.

Fixed an issue causing auto-saves to not work if you have more than one running on a report.

Fixed an issue causing those assigned to a Corral without a start time to be marked as DNF even though they had a finish time.

September 16th, 2020 – RaceDay Scoring v2.1.25

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue with importing race files with segments that start at a non-start location, like a split point.

Fixed an issue causing Top Finishers being scored by Gun Time to not be placed by Gun Time.

Fixed an issue causing the Scored Reads recording page to not save.

Added more information to tooltip explaining Pre-Gun Reads. These are never used for scoring, as we will always use the event start time or Corral start time instead for any participants whose best seen start was before the actual start.

September 10th, 2020 – RaceDay Scoring v2.1.24

Feature Updates

No longer show non finishers in the top five by gender dashboard leaderboards. The top five leaderboards are based on the Overall report for each Scored Event you have for your Race. If you happen to include non-finishers in that Report, and there are less than 5 finishers for the gender you’re looking at, you’ll notice non-finishers showing in that leaderboard. We’ve remove that so it now will never show non-finishers.

Improved Add Scored Reads Page. We have made it more clear how to add Scored Reads (Timing Locations > Scored Reads > Add Times) and standardized the interface of the page. It is now more clear how you can enter times based on a Clock Time instead of entering in Time of Day.

Corral Name can now be added as a column in Reports.

Gun/Corral Start Time of Day Fields can now be added to Reports. You can now include a Participant’s assigned Corral or Event Start Time is in Reports.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue with automatically un-setting DNF flags. We have fixed an issue that would cause a DNF flag to not get un-set if a participant missed their start read but recorded a finish time.

Fixed an issue with reads not being imported for Streams that were not being used in a Finish Location in any Events.

Fixed an issue causing finisher sorting to be all over the place for participants who had some segments completed for scored events being timed in clock time, but had yet to finish the race. Previously the segment sorting was dependent on the scored event being chip/clock based timing, but now we are only sorting regular segments by their chip time, while still sorting the entire race time based on the scored event’s chip/clock time preference.

September 4th, 2020 – RaceDay Scoring v2.1.23

Feature Updates

Changed default sort for non-finishers to be by the most number of completed segments then by lowest cumulative time at last segment. Prior to this non finishers were just shown in random order beneath finishers. This will be helpful for Triathlons and other multi-segment events where you’d like to show the race in progress.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed a bug that would cause participants to not automatically get their DNF/DNS flags set from reads if the Race came from a Race Director export file..

Fixed a bug that caused reads that were assigned to a Participant that was not assigned to an Event that was used for the Location that the read took place on. We now correctly show these in the Raw Read data with the ignored reason “No event found for bib.”

Fixed a bug that caused the Participant Data Filters to not work in Reports.

August 21st, 2020 – RaceDay Scoring v2.1.22

Feature Updates

Added Support for RunSignup Membership Information If you are scoring a RunSignup Race with Memberships setup (USAC, USAT, Custom, etc…) this information will be available to you as a Participant Data Field. You can include this information in Reports by adding this as a column.

Added a Pause/Resume All Auto-Saves feature to the Dashboard You can now control the status of all Auto-Saves in a Race by using the Pause/Resume All Auto-Saves buttons on the Dashboard in the Report Auto-Save Panel. The Panel also now shows a count of Auto-Saves that are enabled for your Race.

Reverted Change to RaceDay Hub Auto-Saves that restricted them to only use intervals of 30s + Now this restriction only applies to RunSignup Results auto-saves.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed issue when importing Race File with Teams at RSU that are not needed for scoring. Shows as error message “Group Type #1: Scored Event ID is required.” when importing.

Fixed issue when using Participant Data Filters with Radio Button Questions. There was an issue with the “Value” dropdown not showing for Radio Button Question Types.

Fixed issue with Participants not showing in Reports when they miss a start read. This was due to their DNS flag not being un-set when a finish time is recorded. Now when a participant finishes, they also will have their DNS flag un-set.

Performance Improvements when saving Scored Events with Races that have many Scored Events

August 13th, 2020 – RaceDay Scoring v2.1.21

Feature Updates

Added support for Participant Custom Fields. You can now set up Custom Fields and import data into them for Participants, which work just like RunSignup Questions and Responses. This is useful if you have a non-RunSignup Race setup that you are importing participant data into from another registration source, and want to include additional data for scoring purposes.

DNS and DNF fields for participants are now set automatically as the Race progresses. When a new Race is created from now on, all Participants will be marked as Did Not Start (DNS) and Did Not Finish (DNF). When a Start Read is recorded for a Participant, their DNS status will be lifted. When a Participant gets an overall Clock Time recorded, their DNF status will be lifted.

Added more Notifications when errors are encountered by the system. In the Notifications area you will now see more errors reported for things such as Stream configuration or file type being incorrect.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue with placement not being correct when showing non-finishers in Reports.

Fixed an issue with deleting Reports.

Fixed an issue with the Report Type Selector in the Report List.


RaceDay Scoring v2.1.20

Feature Updates

Made Scored Reads search and filter bar sticky so it stays at the top of the page when scrolling.

Improved the speed of saving Scored Events and Segments for Races with many Scored Events.

Made a change to the Raw Reads report so that the Device Name shows as a tooltip instead of in the checkbox label before the Stream Name.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue causing the Age Group order in RSU to not match RDS.

Fixed a bug causing the application to freeze when saving segments

Fixed a bug causing a Javascript error message to pop up when switching races.

Fixed an issue causing filtered links to the Raw Reads report to not work correctly.

Fixed a bug causing unknown reads to disappear when recalculating times.

Fixed an issue that could cause a system to think that it is behind an update when it is not.

Fixed the tooltip placement when adding Timing Locations.

Improved the speed of saving Scored Events and Segments for Races with many Scored Events.

Made a change to the Raw Reads report so that the Device Name shows as a tooltip instead of in the checkbox label before the Stream Name.

Fixed the tooltip placement when adding TIming Locations.

Fixed an issue with the release notes formatting – will take affect in the next update.


July 9th, 2020 – RaceDay Scoring v2.1.19

Feature Updates

Added 2020 Age Grading Tables
We have updated our Age Grade tables to reflect the new 2020 standards. You can learn how to add Age Grade to reports here.

Auto-Saves are now included when importing/exporting Races.
Prior to this update, auto-saves would not be included when exporting Race files. Now when you export and import a Race any auto-saves set up will be included. When you import a Race file, any auto-saves that were included will be paused by default.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed a couple of bugs affecting RunSignup Auto-Saves that use the Custom Results Set option for publishing results

  • Empty fields (like city/state or age) used to cause an error when uploading results
  • Changing from using Custom Results to Standard RSU Results caused an error (we now prevent the user from changing Result Set types)

Fixed bug affecting RunSignup Announcer Links.
Under certain circumstances, the RSU announcer links would point to the wrong page. This has been fixed so they will always be in sync.

Fixed bug when mapping a column in RaceDay Scoring to two different fields in RunSignup Results.
Prior to this, only one field would populate. Now they both will.

Fixed bug causing an error when importing Races that include Reports that include Segment Place Columns in a Report Section.


June 19th, 2020 – RaceDay Scoring v2.1.18

Feature Updates

Added new “Ambiguous Reads” selection screen. This will show a list of all participants who have more than one potentially valid read for a common start/finish Timing Location that has overlapping read collection times for Start and Finish. This screen will allow you to select which read you would like to use, instead of requiring you to delete the reads that you don’t want to use like we had done prior to this change.

Added ability to copy Segments from one Scored Event to Another. You can now copy the Segment Setup from one Scored Event to one or many other Scored Events.

Added option to automatically format names in mixed case. This will allow you to type in entries faster on race day, not having to worry about capitalizing things correctly.

We’ve made it easier to add RunSignup Auto-Saves by defaulting in most fields for you.

Added message when the Scored Event Distance does not match the RunSignup Event Distance with a link to change the RunSignup Distance. This will prevent any pace inaccuracies on RunSignup by alerting you to any distance discrepancies.

We now show DQ participants in Reports if you select the option to Show Non-Finishers.

Updated Age Group formatting to look cleaner in Reports. Added a dash in between the min/max ages.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue with importing Bib/Chip Cross References when you have Teams.

Fixed an issue causing Auto-Save settings to not stick after leaving the page.


June 6th, 2020 – RaceDay Scoring v2.1.17

Feature Updates

Added Team Name mapping to Participant Import function. You can now import a list of participants with Team Name and it will automatically set up those teams. If you have existing Group Types you can include the Group Type for each participant when importing, otherwise it will set up a single Group Type for you if none exist.

Added new fields to show start and finish time of day in results When building/editing Reports, you can now add fields that show the Time of Day for reads.

Quick Entry Settings now stored across Races. Quick Entry Settings now will persist across Races so you don’t have to set them up for each Race you time.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue causing State to not be imported if Country is not included.

Fixed an issue causing the Bib/Chip Assignments screen to not sort correctly.

Fixed an issue causing chip assignments to not be imported if none already existed in the Race.


April 29th, 2020 – RaceDay Scoring v2.1.16

Hotfix release – fixed an issue causing the auto-updater to not work from version 2.1.14 and 2.1.15. You can download this version from the Timer Dashboard if you need to update and are coming from those versions.


April 29th, 2020 – RaceDay Scoring v2.1.15

Feature Updates

Added new read selection process if you have a common start/finish with overlapping start and finish time periods. Now when you have overlapping start and finish times on the same location we select the first set of times that meet the gap factor for each participant. This is useful for situations where you will be leaving a start/finish area open for a long period with participants starting and finishing throughout.

Added new ignored read reason type to go along with this new read selection process. We have added the “Extra Finish Occurrence” Ignored Reason so you can easily pick out any potential times that could have been selected for a participant, but they were ignored because an earlier set of times was already selected.

Added ability to delete raw reads. If you do wind up needing to address an issue where someone had a set of reads selected that should not have been (say because they mis-triggered the mats early in the day before they actually completed the course) you can now delete Raw Reads to fix the issue. Deleting Raw Reads will recalculate the Raw Reads for the affected participant and select the next best set of reads to use for scoring. You will need to close and re-open the Raw Reads view to see this after you delete.

Added option to export sync queue from RaceDay Hub Participant Kiosk. You can now export a pending sync queue from a data entry kiosk if you happen to completely lose connection to your main system and need to get the entries manually. You will be able to export these participants then import them into your other computer for scoring.

Added option to prevent duplicate bib numbers when importing participant data from a spreadsheet.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue causing a tooltip to show off screen in the Stream Setup.

Fixed an issue with removing sub-participants from participant kiosk.


March 31st, 2020 – RaceDay Scoring v2.1.14

Feature Updates

RunSignup Corral Assignments now come down when syncing participant information. Prior to this update just the Corrals themselves came down into RaceDay Scoring. Now you will see that both the Corrals come in, as well as including which Participants are included in that Corral.

Added support for better formatted Team Results at RunSignup.

Changed Race Selection dropdown to sort from latest to earliest race dates.

Added option to import changes to participant data from a spreadsheet by mapping the RSU Registration ID.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue that caused sorting names to look incorrect.

Added an automatic full database backup when upgrading RaceDay Scoring to make sure that customers have a way to access old race data if it happens to be lost.

Fixed an issue causing age placements to be incorrect under a certain scenario.

Fixed an issue with importing participants in Races with Super/Sub Events.


March 11th, 2020 – RaceDay Scoring v2.1.13

Feature Updates

Race Export filenames now default to the Race Name instead of the internal Race ID. You can always change the name of the resulting .zip file to whatever we like, but we now default the text to the name of the Race.

RunSignup Corral Assignments now come down when syncing participant information. Prior to this update just the Corrals themselves came down into RaceDay Scoring. Now you will see that both the Corrals come in, as well as including which Participants are included in that Corral.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue that caused tab delimited file Streams to only import the first time in the file.

Fixed an issue causing a crash when opening the application if database included participants who were a part of RunSignup Super Events.

Fixed an issue causing a Race export to not import onto another computer if single band Top Finishers were configured.

Fixed a few time formatting issues when importing a Race file that was scored in another time zone.

Fixed Age Grading for races that are non-standard distances.


March 4th, 2020 – RaceDay Scoring v2.1.10

Feature Updates

We now require a time filter to be saved when adding a Start Location. We will frequently see issues where Timers do not set the “Collect Times Until” time field, causing issues where participant’s finish times may be selected as start times. We now require that this field is set before saving the Start Location form so this can be avoided.

Added Pending Sync Queue for RaceDay Hub Participant Kiosk. We now support better handling of bad network connections between participant entry kiosks and scoring machines by storing a queue of failed adds/edits from the participant entry kiosk. Once network connection is restored, the adds/edits made while disconnected will automatically be sent to the main scoring computer.

We now ignore reads that are an exact duplicate of an existing read in the system. We noticed that some timers will replay data from their readers over and over, causing a build up of raw reads and a reduction in performance due to the amount of raw reads to process. We have made a change to automatically ignore duplicate reads, which can be disabled on the Stream level if absolutely needed.

Changed how Corral re-assignment works. Now if you adjust the rules for an existing Corral, we clear all assignments for that Corral and apply the new rules instead of applying the new rule on top of the old rule.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue that caused the display of these release notes to be poorly formatted.

Fixed an issue causing Zip codes to not find and use the associated city/state when entering in participant data in the RaceDay Hub Participant Kiosk.

Fixed an issue in local races causing segment distances to be formatted as meters when they should be miles.

Fixed an issue causing the app to crash when resolving an unknown read to a new participant.

Fixed an issue causing changes made to a Report with an existing RaceDay Hub Auto-Save to generate a new Report, requiring you to update the selected Report on the RaceDay Hub Kiosk to see the changes made. We now update the Reports with the changes made the next time the results are saved to RaceDay Hub kiosks.

Fixed an issue that caused chip codes to not be saved if added individually to a participant without a cross reference set up for that Race.


February 26th, 2020 – RaceDay Scoring v2.1.9

Feature Updates

Added standard Save/Back buttons to Participant and Group screens so you don’t have to scroll to the bottom to save changes or go back to the last screen.

When using the Set Start Times feature on the Dashboard, we now default the checkboxes to OFF if the Scored Events/Corrals have already been started before. This should make starting Races with many Scored Events or Corrals easier to start times for one by one.

Changed Participant Export to include Corral Name instead of Corral ID.

Moved Result Set ID in the RunSignup Results Auto-Save Setup higher up the form so it is harder to miss. This setting allows you to publish to an existing RunSignup Result Set. By default a new Result Set is created unless you place the ID of an existing Result set in this field.

Made a change to custom File Streams which will allow them to be used as a backup timer Stream in conjunction with a Chip based Primary Stream. Prior to this you would need to upload a bib to bib cross reference as well as a bib to chip cross reference if you were scoring primarily with a chip based system but also had times from a backup timer that were outputting bib numbers.

Updated column sorting to allow clearing of filter. Sorting column headers filters out rows with empty cells of that column. So if you sort on bib number, it will filter the list to only those who have a bib number assigned. Prior to this update the only way to clear that filter was to sort on Name or some other column header that had entries for all participants.

Updated RunSignup Result Set ID field location when auto-saving results to RunSignup. This used to be under the advanced settings, but we found that there was a lot of confusion around adding new auto-saves which then create new Result pages on RunSignup so we made it more prominent. The RunSignup Result Set ID field in the Auto-Save setup allows you to publish to an existing RunSignup Result Set if you know the ID for it, so you don’t have multiple result pages showing in the RunSignup Results dropdown.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue which would cause duplicate participants when importing participant data from a spreadsheet with improperly formatted data (like zip code/phone number) and syncing to RunSignup.

Fixed an issue causing column changes in Reports that are currently auto-saving to RunSignup to not be reflected at RunSignup.

Fixed an issue causing backup times to be selected over primary times if a change in the backup Stream configuration was made.

Fixed an issue causing errors when race was built on a prior version.

Fixed an issue causing distances in miles to be interpreted as meters when creating a Race in RaceDay Scoring and publishing it to RunSignup causing event distances like 0.031 km to be created for 3.1 Mile races..


February 20th, 2020 – RaceDay Scoring v2.1.8

Feature Updates

Updated how we handle chip assignment syncing. We no longer use updates made to individual chip assignments and instead always rely on the chip assignments loaded into RaceDay Scoring.

Added ability to export entire database from one computer and import into another.

Made update information bar more prominent so it is easier to find when starting up the application. We highly encourage updating the software as soon as possible as we are making improvements and fixing issues on a weekly basis.

Added back button to Group add/edit screen.

Upgraded RaceDay Hub Bib Lookup Kiosk for better use with touchscreen computers. Also updated the look to a card view and increased the text size for better readability.

Changed how we manage clearing bibs/chips so that can be done at the Registration Event level instead of the Scored Event level only.

Added Corral to list of fields that can be filtered on. Now you can produce Reports that only include participants from one Corral for instance.

Added option to hide skipped fields in Quick Mode.

Added support for international phone numbers in the participant entry form

Participant Export now includes Event Name instead of Event ID.

Participant Export now includes DOB in the MM/DD/YYYY format.

Added email and street address fields as available fields in Reports. This will allow you to more easily create reports to send to your race photographers.

Added ability to clean up RunSignup Result Sets when deleting Reports with RunSignup Results auto-saves running.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue where Group updates made at RunSignup would not be reflected in RaceDay Scoring.

Fixed an issue where you were unable to clear bib/chip numbers for participants who were not included in a Scored Event.

Fixed an issue causing reads to show up in a Race from another previous Race loaded on that computer.

Fixed an issue causing Segment setup errors to not show what field was causing the error in the form.

Changed how multiple Streams using the same Hardware name are handled. We saw that some users were using a File and Direct Stream with the same Hardware Name in the same Race as an easier way to flip from Direct to File Streaming. This actually caused some issues so we have removed the ability for you to assign multiple Streams using the same Hardware Name in the same Race. If you need to change from Direct to File, you can have the Stream prepared and set up in advance, just remove the Direct Stream and add the associated File Stream to switch over to File streaming.

Fixed an issue causing report sections to be duplicated.

Fixed an issue causing the default event setting to not apply when adding new participants.

Fixed an issue causing bib updates to not be reflected in the app when changes were made at RunSignup.

Fixed an issue causing default event participant entry setting to not work.

Fixed an issue causing some exports to fail when importing into another computer.


February 6th, 2020 – RaceDay Scoring v2.1.7

Feature Updates

Added a quick button in the Change All Read Dates to setting to set it to the day of the Race.

Changed the default sort order of Stream Types to be alphabetical.

Updated Windows Print code – this should be more stable now.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue causing a white screen when opening a local kiosk window.

Fixed an issue causing inaccurate stream indicator statuses.

Fixed an issue causing a failure to import race exports.

Fixed an issue causing Race exports to fail when auto-saves have been running.

Fixed an issue causing ticket submission to fail.


January 30th, 2020 – RaceDay Scoring v2.1.6

Feature Updates

Added option to hide skipped fields in Quick Mode. Use the Settings button in the Participant Add form to access this and other Quick Mode Settings.

Added better error handling when submitting support tickets especially with poor internet connection or if our support system’s API is down.

Added automatic file extensions to exporters so that Race exports will always be .zip, CSV will always be .csv, etc…

Added support for Aggregate Team Scoring by Age Grade.

Added sync queue viewer in the Participant Sync screen. In the case that you run into a sync error that you are unable to resolve you can now clear the error to proceed with scoring.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue causing issues when switching between time zones. We now always display times in the time zone that the race took place, ignoring the computer clock.

Fixed an issue causing sync errors when importing some Race Director exports.

Fixed an issue causing splits with periods in their name like 3.1 to not post to RunSignup Results.

Fixed an issue causing sync errors when switching a Participant from a Super Event to a Sub Event.

Fixed an issue causing errors when importing phone numbers that have an x in them representing extension. We now trim off any data including and after an x in a phone number.

Fixed an issue causing the connector to disconnect and re-connect frequently with a new Chronotrack Fusion update. This should no longer occur.

Added better validation around improperly formatted phone numbers and email addresses.

Fixed an issue causing Age Grade scores to not be shown if the distance was less than 3.10686 miles. Now if you set the distance to say 3.1 miles we will use the 5k age grade tables assuming that is what you meant.

Fixed an issue affecting printing Reports that had certain characters in them – this affected some Age Group and Group Reports depending on your descriptions.


January 10th, 2020 – RaceDay Scoring v2.1.4

Feature Updates

Added support for Group Results and Result Publishing for Reports with Multiple Sections to RunSignup Results. Each section corresponds to a result set at RSU.

Added option to open a separate RaceDay Hub Window on the same computer as your main RaceDay Scoring system.

Added top toolbar to RaceDay Hub allowing switching between Participant and Result mode more easily.

Applied Kiosk Lock mode to top toolbar selection so participants cannot change mode.

Added key bindings in participant edit/add screen. Currently they are:
Alt + s — save
Alt + d — delete
Alt + q — toggle quick mode
Alt + right arrow — next
Alt + left arrow — previous
Alt + c — cancel

Bib field will be focused on after saving if quick mode enabled in participant add screen

Adding setting to auto-increment bib numbers when adding participants in Quick Mode.

Updated Full Screen Recent Reads to allow more lines and fill the width of the screen for a better experience.

Added Timer Contact fields to the Result Set setup.

Improved Connector handling of multiple file drops at the same time.

Added “Catch-All” option in Corrals to quickly include all participants not already included in other Corrals.

Added a way to manually add Raw Reads in the Raw Reads View. This will let you more easily fix up situations where a read was missed for a participant and needs to be inserted between other existing reads.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue allowing participants to be saved without an Event, which would cause sync errors to RunSignup.

Fixed an issue causing splits to not be posted to RunSignup Results.

Fixed an issue causing Sync errors if a participant is not uploaded to RunSignup, but their results are.

Fixed an issue causing Raw Reads to be left out of Race Imports.


December 31st, 2019 – RaceDay Scoring v2.1.3

IMPORTANT NOTE
There was a major bug introduced briefly today December 31st 2019 between 4:30 PM EST and 6:00 PM which makes the program unable to open – this has since been resolved.

If you had updated during that time you simply need to download the installer from your Timer Dashboard and install it over your existing version. No need to uninstall ahead of downloading and installing the new version. You will not lose any existing race data.

If you did not download an update between 4:30 PM and 6:00 PM on December 31st, then you can update as normal using the updater inside the app.

Feature Updates

Sidebar now stays in place when scrolling through pages. If the window is too short you can scroll through the sidebar as well by hovering over it and using your mousewheel/trackpad.

Added support for J-Chip Timing Systems.

Added note when changing Timing Location Types and Segment Start/End Points to check your Segment Setup.
Making changes to the Timing Location Type will affect whether or not that Location can be used as a start or finish location. This will affect your Segment Setup.

We now disable the RunSignup Age Grade field on results published by RaceDay Scoring by default. If needed you can enable it in your auto-save settings.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue causing date of birth formats to not be accepted when importing participants.

Fixed an issue with the Disable Sync function not being applied to individual updates.

Fixed an issue with certain segment configurations causing times to not be collected for some segments.


December 18th, 2019 – RaceDay Scoring v2.1.2

Feature Updates

Auto Adjust Segment Occurrence Usage when changing between separate/common Start/Finish Setups.

Added top toolbar to more pages and added action buttons to make them more accessible at the top or bottom of the page.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue that caused sync failures when using RunSignup Super/Sub Events.

Fixed an issue when using multiple filters in one Report.

Fixed an issue when creating Races on RunSignup outside of the US.


December 12th, 2019 – RaceDay Scoring v2.1.1

We’re very happy to announce Version 2 of RaceDay Scoring!

Important Note

This version includes a one-time database migration which could take a little while to complete depending on the size of your participant database.

Alt text

The migration is complete when you see the database migration screen complete after the first time you load the software after this update.

Feature Updates

Start Times

Added Corrals to assign Start Times to any group of Participants You now have the ability to create Corrals of Participants which you can assign start times to. You have the ability to create Corral Member Assignment Rules which will automatically place Participants into Corrals based on their information like Gender, Age, Event, or Custom Question Responses.

Alt text

Added option to have an untimed start Previously you would need to have a Timing Location that was designated a Start Location to assign to your Segments as starting points. For races where chip times are not collected at the Start you would still need a “dummy” Start Location. Now you have the option to select “Not a timed start” when setting up Scored Events and Segments to avoid this restriction.

Alt text

Groups/Team Scoring

More Aggregate Team Scoring Options now available We now support the following Aggregate Team Scoring options: Score by: Age Group Place, Gender Place, Team Total Time, Team Average Time

Alt text

Added dropdown select for Group Type when using a Participant Info Filter in Report Section Filtering.

Participants

RunSignup Super Event Support We now fully support RunSignup Races that use Super/Sub Events in their registration setup. Participants will be split into multiple participants for each Scored Event that they are entered in.

Added Clear Bib/Chip Cross Reference option when Clearing Chip Codes from Participants. We now allow you do clear the Bib/Chip Cross Reference when clearing all Participant’s Chip Assignments. Before, if you had Chips assigned and a Chip Cross Reference setup then cleared Chips, they would be automatically re-applied based on the Bib/Chip Cross Reference.

Alt text

Streams

Changed Summit Stream Type to always assume that the data should never consider the Chip Cross Reference so that it is mapped directly to the bib number. This will make it so that you do not need to import multiple cross reference files if you are collecting chip reads with one stream that need a cross reference, but also are collecting times on a Summit device that does not need a cross reference.

Dashboard

Added message to leaderboard display on Dashboard about requiring Gender Place columns to be present in Reports in order to work.

Alt text

Raw Reads View

Added Bib Number to Raw Reads view when using chip systems that only report Chip Number in the read data, but you have a Bib/Chip Auto-Assignment Rule which contains Bib Number mappings. Previously we would only show the actual raw read data here which would not include bib number. We now derive the Bib number associated with that Chip code and show it in the Raw Reads view.

Alt text

Segments

We now automatically update the Occurrence Count for Segment Definitions when changing from a separate Start/Finish race setup to a Common Start/Finish race setup. This was a commonly overlooked setting which caused net times to be 0 because the system was using occurence 1 for the start and finish of a Location. Now when we sense that a Race is using the same Location for a start and finish for an Event, we will automatically update the endpoint occurrence to use to 2.

Alt text

Bugs Fixed

Groups/Teams

Fixed an issue allowing you to create Group Reports that do not have any Groups registered.

Fixed an issue that caused Team Name to be unavailable in non Group Report Types.

Imroved performance of chip assignments being sent to RunSignup

Top Finisher Categories

Fixed an issue with Top Finisher Categories.

Fixed a small issue with Top Finisher categories that could force a shutdown if a certain combination of steps were followed.

Fixed an issue that caused event transfers to no longer trigger a raw read recalculation for that participant.

Scored Events

Fixed an issue when switching between clock and chip time scoring

Fixed an issue causing Actual Start Time dates being displayed incorrectly

Other Bugs

Fixed a bug causing RunSignup Announcer Links to be incorrect.

Fixed a bug causing Female Age Grade scores to be incorrect.

Fixed a bug causing Timing Location dropdown to be inoperable when setting up a Data Action.

Fixed a bug crashing RaceDay Hub clients.

Added note to partially imported Race Files Sometimes a Race File can be incomplete or corrupt causing some pieces of the setup to be missing. We are starting to capture these now and showing the user how to fix the part of the setup that is incomplete in the restored version of the Race. We will be tracking down the reasons why the exports become incomplete as well and fixing the causes as we go.

Adjusted Section Place field to include DNF/DNS/DNQ flags
Section Place is a field that you can add to Reports that is a simple numbering of the Report Section you have. This is handy to use when filtering based on some data, but you want to show a placement within that filtered data.

Added a way to import data with any delimiter you provide
You can now import data using a comma, tab, semi-colon, or anything else that you provide. This covers importing participants, chip assignments, etc…

Added support for selecting date formats when importing participants
You can now let RaceDay Scoring know what the date formatting in the data you are importing is supposed to be.

Added city/state to list of available columns to add in the recent reads view.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue when updating the label of the “Place” column in reports.

Fixed an issue with deleting Reports

Fixed an issue with processing common start/finish reads

Fixed an issue with recalculating reads that would make it look like all reads are being ignored after a recalculate.

Fixed an issue with Segment Place Columns being based on Chip Time even if the Scored Event is set to be based on Clock Time

Fixed an issue with the recent reads full screen button not working when the panel is collapsed


September 19th 2019 – RaceDay Scoring v1.1.27

We have added a component that will allow you to click the names of participant in various parts of the app which will bring up the participant view/edit screen for that participant. This will let you quickly edit participant information.

Added ability to publish a Race that was initially not set up as a RunSignup race.
Prior to this you could not convert an existing Race to publish to RunSignup. We have added the ability to publish existing races that originally were not set up to be created on RunSignup. This is found under Participant Sync > Edit

Auto-Fill Race URL from Race Name
Now when creating a Race and publishing it to RunSignup – the URL field is pre-filled with the Race Name by default. You can adjust this if needed, but will make things quicker if the Race Name is sufficient itself.

Automatically lock Scored Reads that have been recorded manually

Added option to delete locked reads as well when clearing times.

Now when setting up Streams you will be able to assign them to a Timing Location making a simple race setup much quicker.

Added Display Filters to Report Section Filtering
This will allow you to filter participants into this Report Section without re-numbering their placements from their original Scored Event. This is useful if you just want to add a Report Section to display the top X finishers meeting some condition, but do not want their actual placements to be changed. You can use the “Section Place” field to show the placement within this Report Section – otherwise “Place” will be their placement in the original Report.

Added warning when adjusting Reports with Auto-Saves to RaceDay Hub Kiosks
New auto-saves are created when Reports are edited, requiring you to go into your Kiosk computer and select the new Auto-Save. This was not apparent before, so we’ve added a dialog warning you that you will need to go into the Kiosk and select the new Auto-Save that was generated for that Report.

Added Top 5 Leaderboards by Gender to Race Dashboard
We’ve added a quick and easy way to see how your Race standings are looking in real-time on the Dashboard. You can quickly change the Event and Gender shown.

Added More Options to Top Finisher Categories for grouping Genders
Now you have the option to show each gender separately, combined, or only one or the other in Top Finisher Categories.

Added ability to quickly publish results to RunSignup at once.
In order to send results to RunSignup you have to set up an Auto-Save. We’ve added a quicker way to make a one-time publish from the Reports List if you don’t need them to be updated and just want to publish results for a Report right now.

Fixed an issue causing Auto-Saves to spot running when internet connection is lost

Fixed an issue with converting Decimal to Hexadecimal conversion

Fixed an issue causing reports to not be generated

Fixed an issue causing a fatal app crash after changing time formatting rules at the global level.


July 12th – RaceDay Scoring v1.1.20

Feature Updates

Added initial support for Printing Directly to Printer
We now support printing a Report directly to a printer as an item in the Export dropdown for each report, as well as via a button on the Report View. Formatting customization will eventually come to this in the future.

Added support for Custom Top Finishers
You can now apply filters to Top Finisher Categories – This will allow you to define a Top Finisher Category for custom question responses for instance – letting you have a Top Finisher Category for “Clydesdale” which is removed from their Age Group and have it’s own jumping and double dipping rules between other Top Finisher Categories like “Overall” and “Masters”.

Added more useful information to the Dashboard
You’ll now see the following items on the Dashboard:

  • Ignored Raw Read Count – click to expand and see a breakdown of how many of those Raw Reads were ignored for each specific reason. This will help in getting a quick view into why reads may be getting ignored.
  • Count of Race Participants – click to expand and see a breakdown of Participants per Scored Event
  • Breakdown of the number of Scored Reads Per Event per Timing Location

Added functions to clear all reads and recalculate all reads on all Timing Locations from the Dashboard
Prior to this update, you would have to clear or recalculate times from each Timing Location if you needed to clear/recalculate all times at once.

Added combined column for Segment Place
You’ll now see better formatted Segment Place fields in the Report Builder.

Added “Cumulative Clock Time” field for splits

Added custom column suggestions based on Scored Event
When adding columns to Report Sections we now limit the available fields to only those applicable to the Scored Event selected for that Report Section.

Added link to Global Time Formatting Options from Dashboard
Time Formatting Options are specific to the Race – but are pulled from the Global Settings. We’ve added a shortcut to that from the Time Formatting Options panel on the Dashboard.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed a few issues when importing race exports

Fixed an issue causing multiple division placements to show on RunSignup results.

Refactored the Raw Reads count to be more accurate.

Fixed issue affecting some Time Formats where leading 0s in minutes did not show.

Fixed issue affecting some Race | Results text file formatting types

Fixed issue with Connector when Stream Hardware Names change.

Fixed minor issues with PDF/HTML/CSV Reports


June 20th – RaceDay Scoring v1.1.19

Feature Updates

Added ability to set whether Relay Teams should have the same bib for all members, or allow individual bibs to be different within the same Relay Team
When setting up a Scored Event, you now have a new area to set up “Group Options” which you can configure this setting on.

Added initial support for Aggregate Teams
We have added the first part of our support for Aggregate Teams. This Team Type will be used to support Corporate/Social/XC style Team Scoring where you will add up the times or places of the members of a team. Right now we just have the setup interface complete – it does not generate the Team Standings or product Team Results at this point.

Added support for Group/Team Name in Raw Reads view

Improved Report Builder to better guide you in adding new Report Sections to the Report
We’ve improve the user experience for adding Report Sections to a Report by filtering out functions that you cannot use until a previous function has been completed. For instance – you cannot add any Report Section Type if you do not have an Event selected. We also make this dynamic based on what type of Event you have selected – if you have selected a Relay Team Event, we will show the Group Type Report section button, but will hide it if you do not have a Relay Team Event selected.

Bugs Fixed

Added more cleanup to listings when a Scored Event is deleted.

Fixed issue with adding “Splits with Place” to reports

Fixed issue with bib numbers being lost when transferring participants between Scored Events.

Fixed issue with exporting lists to CSV

Fixed issue with unknown read resolution.


June 5th – RaceDay Scoring v1.1.18

Added a way to define Time Filtering Rules at the Race and Global level.
We now support many different time formats for the Report View, including rounding rules and padding out with zeros if needed. This is found on the Dashboard (by race) and the settings button in the top right of the app (global settings).

Bugs Fixed

Fixed bug with Top Finisher Categories by Clock Time setting

Fixed issue where unknown chip reads were not being shown in Participants > Actions > Fix Unknown Reads

Fixed issue with Group Type imports not working correctly

Fixed bug when adding Age Group Section to a Report in some instances


May 29th – RaceDay Scoring v1.1.17

Feature Updates

Added new setting in Segment Setup to filter previous segments when this segment is complete
This will help with by ignoring times coming in at a segment for participants who have a recorded time for a segment that should come after the one in question. This will also allow you to ignore start times after finish times if you enable this on a single segment.

Isolated Stream Configuration Changes so that they only affect the Stream that is being changed.
Previously we would shut down connections to all Streams when a change is made on one. This is an issue for those using Direct systems that do not allow you to rewind data – causing a potential data loss. We have reworked our connection so that we now only shut down the connection to the Streams that are actually being changed, so that any other connections that do not need to be updated remain connected.

Improved Connector State Status Indicator (Reads)
We found an issue where the connector process would shut down while the app was still running, but we were not aware of it due to the connector status indicator not being “smart” enough. We implemented a new way of detecting if the connection is lost and reporting it correctly back to RaceDay Scoring, and fixed the issue that caused the Connector to shut down.

Added save and back buttons to toolbar in Timing Location and Stream Setup pages.

Added a way to view any Sync errors on participant records

Improved participant filter by more easily letting you clear all search terms at once.

Made change to Report Builder to show the actual Report Section Type and Scored Event, so that it can be referenced after making a change to the Report Section Name.
Previously you could easily lose track of the original section name and you edit it, and forget which Event or Type this Section was based on, causing confusion.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed bug affecting the Age Grade Calculation.

Fixed bug affecting the Participant CSV Export.

Fixed bug when adding/deleting Top Finisher Categories.

Fixed bug when changing an existing Scored Event from Chip to Gun time or vice/versa.

Fixed issue with associated Listings when deleting Scored Events.

Fixed issue with associated Reports when deleting Scored Events.

Fixed issue with Listings when restoring races.

Improved speed of Report view


May 14th – RaceDay Scoring v1.1.16

Feature Updates

Show clock and chip times in participant view
We now show clock and chip times for all segments in all listings that a participant is a part of in the participant view, along with their place and chip times.

Added ability to change the column order in Report Section Templates
You can now store Report Section Templates with an order that the templates should be in when applied. Previously, you could only select what columns will be included, but could not define what order they should show in.

Made change to Report Builder to show the actual Report Section Type and Scored Event, so that it can be referenced after making a change to the Report Section Name.
Previously you could easily lose track of the original section name and you edit it, and forget which Event or Type this Section was based on, causing confusion.

Bugs Fixed

Made many changes to address reporting issues when importing a race that caused Reports to look for incorrect listings.

Fixed issue when creating a non-RunSignup race locally.
Previously there was an issue with participants never showing because participant sync had not started. With local races, this is not an option so participants would not show.


April 22nd RaceDay Scoring v1.1.15

Feature Updates

Connector Status Update
We now better indicate if the Connector loses connection to a device when using direct connection Stream types.

Package Updates
Updated all internally used packages to latest versions to ensure compatibility and stability.

April 19th 2019 RaceDay Scoring v1.1.14

Feature Updates

RaceList Update
We now show an indicator if a Race is today in addition to the existing values of “Upcoming” and “Passed”. These are now color coded as well.

Select Race Dropdown Improvements
We have changed the Race Selection dropdown from the top toolbar. This is now no longer tied to the Race List filters, will let you see all Races loaded (instead of just the page that you have selected in the Race List), and you can type to search.

Top Finisher Category Improvements

  • A default band is no longer pre-loaded when opening up the Top Finisher Category Setup to reduce confusion.
  • The band jumping rules are hidden from the first Top Finisher Category that is created (because these settings do not have any meaning for the highest priority band).
  • The default Band Jumping Rule is now set to the most commonly used one – “All”.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed bug that caused an error when importing a Race Export that had participants without registration IDs


April 10th 2019 RaceDay Scoring v1.1.13

Feature Updates

Moved Top Finisher Setup to Age Group Setup Page
We have moved the Top Finisher Settings from the Report Builder to the Age Group Setup page. This should make setting up a race more simple, and will no longer require you to edit a report to set up Top Finisher Categories like you have in the past.

Created function to update all existing Reports when Top Finisher Settings are saved
We saw that many times Top Finisher Settings were not being applied to existing reports so we refactored the code to apply the changes when updating the Top Finisher Settings immediately. This was possible due to the change we made to Top Finisher Settings now being separate from individual Reports.

Added Event Mapping option to Participant Import
You are now able to import a spreadsheet with Event names that do not match the Event Names in RaceDay Scoring. If RaceDay Scoring encounters an instance of an Event Name that isn’t in RaceDay Scoring, it will allow you to map that to any one of the Events loaded in the system.

Updated Age Group Position and Gender Position Columns in Report View to be more condensed

Added Participant Count to Participant List view

Added checkbox to hide past Races in Race List View

Fixed issue with connector indicator being incorrect when shut down incorrectly

Fixed issue when RunSignUp account is locked due to multiple failed attempts

Update to Race Import Function
Completely changed Race Import process on the Race List Import Function when importing a Race that you do not already have loaded. This should now be much more stable and faster. Importing into an already existing Race has not been changed.

Multiple improvements to the stability of the software by ensuring listing cleanup after associated Reports are deleted.

Fixed issue with Raw Reads View label being hidden

Fixed issue with next and previous buttons on Race List View

Fixed issue changing Scored Event on Scored Group Type, and Event Selector in the Scored Groups View

Fixed error message when importing a Race with registrants who already are loaded in RaceDay Scoring for the same race


March 26th 2019 – RaceDay Scoring v1.1.12

Feature Updates

New feature – Connection Status Indicator for direct type Streams in Streams List
We now show green/red status indicators for each assigned Stream that is one of the Direct types like MyLaps, CT, Race Result, Trident, IPICO.
We also show a message in the app if you lose or gain connection while the Connector is running.

Race List now sorted by default to show races furthest in the future at the top of the list

When importing participants, we now check for and ignore duplicates

We now show a note about leaving the file extension blank in the Stream Setup. This would consider ALL files in a folder if left blank.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed issue with changing Stream Settings for existing Streams
If a user updated older Streams with new settings they were not saving. Now they should save.

Fixed issue with not being able to publish results to RunSignUp
This was caused by adding age groups without a number of winners assigned. Now it should not matter if you do not assign a number of winners for each age band.

Fixed issue with creating a Race at RunSignUp in the app
This was causing PM races to show in AM times.


March 15th 2019 – RaceDay Scoring v1.1.10

Feature Updates

Indicate Passed/Upcoming Races in Race List We now show a tag next to each Race in your Race List indicating if it has passed, or if it is upcoming. In the future we will give you the ability to filter based on these tags.

Made More Stream Settings Save Across Races Stream options like the folder to monitor, the ip address and port, etc are now tied to the stream.. no matter what race they are in.

Added Option to Delete All Participants This will allow the user to delete all participants from their database. This will also delete any associated RunSignUp registrations, so please be careful using this feature.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed issue with publishing races to RunSignUp Added an error message when trying to use a URL that already exists on RunSignUp.


March 12, 2019 – RaceDay Scoring v1.1.9

Feature Updates

Upcoming Races Sorting Updates
We are adding support for the upcoming races to be sorted by date, name, or ID. The default sort will be descending, so the furthest in the future shows first in the list. We will also be adding a search to this page.

Added option in Scored Reads View to export Scored Reads
This would allow a timer to export scored reads collected on one machine and import them into another.

Experience Updates

  • Improved Race List Search and Sort functions
  • Updated tooltips in many places to make more legible
  • Improved Group Member Add interface by making it a dialog instead of inside of a small panel.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed issue with ages with leading zeros not importing properly
Some systems will export age with a leading zero if they are under two digits – “08” for instance. Without this fix, those come in as “0”.

Fixed issue with Scored Reads View Clear button

Fixed issue with Group Bib Numbers not showing correctly in latest scored reads list and edit.


Feb 26, 2019 – RaceDay Scoring v1.1.8

Feature Updates

Change to prioritize chip lookup for all timing types

  • We have updated our chip cross-reference priority so that in the case that you are remapping bib chips to another bib number we will always use the chip lookup first. Prior to this update we would also try to match on bib number, which could cause problems if the original bib for the bibcode that was remapped is an actual participant in the race.
  • For instance: The Bibchip for Bib #1 is placed on Bib #10, then Bibchip #10 is placed on Bib #5. Prior to the update, a read for Bibchip #10 would result as a read for Bib #10 and Bib #5. Now it would result as a read for Bib #5 only because it is discarding the original bib-to-bib reference completely and using only the chipcode lookup.

Stream Updates

  • We now support Group ID exists on MyLaps Readlite File Stream Interface
  • Stream List visual update. Assigned Streams now show at the top, with unassigned Streams below
  • We now show a tag of the Stream Type in the Streams List, making them easier to identify

Experience Updates

  • Added warning message when start times are missing, directing you to the Scored Event Setup to update the start times.

Updated File Browser Function when saving Exports

  • Now using different method of browsing for file to save to. It should now be easier to not mess up file extensions when typing in your own file name when saving.

  • This is accessible by clicking the “Settings” button on the Streams List, or by clicking the gear next to the port number when adding/editing a Stream

New File Stream Types Available!

  • We’ve added a few more File Stream Types

We’re happy to release the next version of RaceDay Scoring!

This release has added some more functionality to the Raw Reads search, added some call out features to any pre-gun Scored Reads, and added more support for Relay Teams, as well as a few minor bug fixes and UI updates.

Pre-Gun Start Handling

For the standard chip time, we ignore any pre-gun starts from participants. If a participant has no other reads before the gun start time we use the gun start time as their chip start time

We have a few “Pre-Gun” time fields that you can add to any Report Section if you like, but they are not in the default column set.

  • To reduce confusion – we now call out any Scored Reads that are before the Gun Time in the Scored Reads view and the Participant Results view
