5/31/2023 RaceDay Scoring v3.3.39

Feature Updates

Added a notification if an Event has been deleted at RunSignup.

This can cause issues if you are publishing results for a deleted event, so we recommend removing any registration events that have been deleted at RunSignup from use in any of your Scored Events, or contacting RunSignup support to have events restored if this was an accident.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue causing FinishLynx times to not be processed correctly if they were under 10 minutes from the gun time in the file.

Corrected the automatic creation of a display field when you create a custom computed field that is in milliseconds.

This was not working as expected before, but we also have updated the fields that are created, so the initial one will automatically have ” (ms)” appended to the field label, and the secondary field that is created for you in a standard time format will have the original field name.

Fixed an issue causing date/time fields used in filtering to not display values to the user, making it seem like the values were not saved.

RaceDay Scoring v3.3.38

Feature Updates

Added support for importing State Names in the Participant import.

Prior to this change, we would only import 2 digit State codes, or the full State and Country name. Now you can just use State name without having to include Country name as well.

Improved Connector to better handle situations where connection to a device through a direct TCP/IP port has been lost.

Added the ability to use the “Is Null” and “Is Not Null” Operations when filtering by a custom question response.

This will make it easier to do things like selecting all participants who did not respond to a question at all.

Bugs Fixed

Corrected an issue with the Prediction Run settings that would not allow you to select a Time question type in the Scored Event setup.

Fixed an issue causing a report error when viewing a report that had a Segment Place column that was a part of a Race that was renewed.

Fixed a potential crash when viewing Scored Reads.

Fixed an issue with the Race Day Hub Announcer Kiosk read processing causing it to not handle lowercase chip codes.

5/11/2023 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.37

Bugs Fixed

Further adjusted green Race toolbar to better accommodate long Race/Timer/User names.

Fixed an issue causing top finisher category priority to not be respected causing incorrect placements.

Corrected an issue causing Timer account selection to be lost after closing the app if you have multiple Timer accounts.

Corrected an issue causing Participants in non-relay Scored Events that have a Team assignment from being scored properly.

Fixed a bug causing Lap scoring settings tooltips to not show.

Added better validation when adding field delimiters and file extensions in the Stream settings.

Before this, a user could enter invalid characters into this field, like spaces, which would cause the stream to not process reads correctly or at all.

Fixed a bug causing the Boston Qualifier Summary counts to include participants who have dropped or were disqualified.

Fixed a bug when resolving an unknown raw read causing the bib number to not be included in the unknown raw read resolution form, causing the reads to not get associated with the target participant unless you remembered to enter in the bib manually.

Removed unneeded additional Gender and Team Type name appending when auto-saving a Team report to RunSignup.

This would cause result set names that looked like: “Team Summary-5-Person Relay School-5-Person Relay School” when they should be “Team Summary-5-Person Relay School”

Prevented an issue causing an error when publishing results to RunSignup with too long of a Result Set name.

5/5/2023 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.36 – Hotfix

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue with Team Name search in Raw Reads not showing all related members

Corrected an issue with read selection when recalculating raw reads when reads came in out of order.

For example, if you imported start reads after finish reads, and used the setting to require a start read before a finish, recalculating would not work as expected.

4/28/2023 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.35 – Hotfix

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue with the Race toolbar causing dropdowns to not work properly.

4/27/2023 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.34

Feature Updates

Added Custom Section Header in Report Builder.

You will now be able to add a custom header to any Report Section in a Report. You can add variable fields like Race Name, Race Location, Race Date, Timer name/URL as well as any text you like.

We also support custom HTML in the field if you have some specific formatting or colors that you prefer.

In the future we will make this available to use in Report Templates if you want to have a standard custom header for all reports you create.

Added Built-in Predicted Time/Pace Reports

You can now mark a Scored Event as a Prediction Run. This will allow you to select a Custom Question/Field that is tracking the predicted time or pace for each participant. After doing this, you will have the ability to create a new report that includes a Prediction Time/Pace Section, which will rank participants based on how close they were to their predicted time or pace.

You also have the ability to say that all Predicted Time/Pace sections created for this Scored Event should be broken out by gender. This will make it so that when you add this kind of Report Section for this Scored Event, it will generate a section that is automatically filtered to only show the genders that you have selected. So if you select Male and Female, when you add a Predicted Time/Pace Report Section, two will drop into the Report (one filtered to only show males, and another filtered to only show females).

Added Time Formatting when using Filters.

Added time formatting to filtering when a time field is selected. Now you will be more easily able to create a filter that is something like “All participants who ran faster than 19:30.000”. Prior to this change you would have to figure out how many milliseconds are in the time you are filtering on.

Added more default dates.

Now whenever a date field shows up in the app it will default to the default race date.

Added Pace (Not Rounded) field to Report Builder.

The default Pace values are rounded up to the nearest second. We use the not rounded version when calculating predicted pace reports, so we have made this field generally available if you prefer to show Paces that are more precise.

Added RFID Direct Stream Support

We have added an RFID Direct Stream option, which will allow you to create a Stream that will connect directly to a single RFID reader by using it’s IP Address and Port.

Added a way to define Aggregate Team “Must Have Gender/Age” settings so that you can require some amount of members per Gender AND some number of those must be over some age.

This will allow you to do a scoring setup such as:

Score through 8 total members. 4 must be male, 1 of those 4 males must be over 40 years old, 4 must be female, and 1 of those 4 females must be over 40 years old.

Bug Fixes

Fixed a bug causing City/State to not automatically populate when entering in a zipcode.

Fixed a bug causing Relay Summary Reports for Races with multiple Segments to not sort non-finishers properly.

Fixed a bug when exporting Reports that include the Team & Members column to CSV, TXT, and PDF that would cause HTML formatting to show in the export.

Fixed user interface issue where the cloud backup/restore buttons could be hidden if the Race name was very long.

Better handling of network errors that occur when connectivity is insufficient.

Corrected issue with IPICO Gunshot Marker processing.

Fixed a bug causing a crash when saving “Must Have X” per Gender settings at the Team Type level under certain situations.

4/18/2023 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.33

Feature Updates

Implemented improved RunSignup Login functionality (Oauth2).

This login will be saved for up to a month, so you will no longer need to periodically log in to RunSignup.

You also will now be able to remotely revoke access from your RunSignup profile if necessary via the “Oauth2 Authorizations” link. https://runsignup.com/Profile/OAuth2

The login will now ask that you use RunSignup to authenticate, which will open up a browser window where you will need to login to RunSignup and click a button to authorize RaceDay Scoring.

Added Minimum Age by Gender Settings to Aggregate Team Scoring Rules.

You can now say that you must have some number of participants on a Team that are of a certain gender and over a certain age to count towards their Team Score using this feature.

It is possible to use the min age settings by themselves to say all participants of that gender must be over a certain age by leaving the gender count field blank.

Added a column to Aggregate Team Detail Report Sections that will indicate which members of each Team contributed to the Team Score.

This makes it easier to tell how the Team Score is calculated.

3/30/2023 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.31

Feature Updates

Improved the warnings when saving scored events and the selected registration event distances do not match.

In addition the selection of the “Use this as the default scored event” will now correctly change the list of selected registration events for the given scored event.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed announcer screen ability to change columns selected and for default setup Gender/Age column to work with no changes.

Removed the ability for auto-saves to automatically update when changes occur to related settings because it was causing issues with Splits columns clearing data in RunSignup Results. Now you must go into Auto-Save Settings and save them whenever you make a change to a Report in order for changes to be applied.

Corrected database issue

3/8/2023 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.30

Feature Updates

Changed Total Time for lap races field so that it shows as empty instead of null for those who do not have any times recorded.

Added “Splits – Times Only” Field

You can now include this field if you do not want to show paces along with times for all of your splits.

Added Boston Qualifier Report Section Type

You can now create a Report with a Boston Qualifier section in it, which will show you who has qualified in this Race for the Boston Marathon, based on the times posted at https://www.baa.org/races/boston-marathon/qualify

In addition, we will show a summary of how many participants in this Scored Event have qualified, with a percentage of finishers that were Boston Qualifiers.

You can only use this report section on a Scored Event that is exactly 26.2 miles, and when you decide to add the section you will need to select which year of the Boston Marathon you would like to run the report for, and what class you are running the report on. The class selection is typically used for paralympic categories.

There is a setting that will allow you to only show Boston Qualifiers, otherwise all participants will show in the report.

Any participants without birthdays or genders in the database will show a message in the field indicating what they are missing.

Once you have a Boston Qualifier Report, you will be able to use Export > BAA Submission to produce a CSV that should be acceptable for submission to BAA.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed a bug with the auto-import functionality when creating bib/chip cross-reference files

Fixed an issue causing you to not be able to access Corral Member Assignment Rules directly after creating a new Corral.

Fixed an issue causing Timing Location Occurrence Time of Day Fields used in Data Actions to not be imported properly.

Improved performance for events with many Aggregate Team Detail Results.

3/2/2023 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.29

Bugs Fixed

Fixed a bug with printing.

Fixed a problem causing “Custom Field X is using Invalid Segment ID” errors.

Fixed a problem causing a “Top Finisher X Jumping Rules is not a map” error when importing a Race export.

2/23/2023 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.28

Feature Updates

Added Total Time (ms) as a field that can be sorted on.

It is now possible to use the Total Time field in the Sort functionality in reports. The Total Time field is used to hold the Total Time completed in Lap Races.

Added Time Back Fields

Time back from gender winner: The difference between this participant’s time and the fastest participant of the same gender’s time. Labeled as “Time Back”.

Time back from overall winner: The difference between this participant’s time and fastest participant for the overall listing of the report section. Labeled as “Overall Time Back”.

Time back from last finisher: The difference between this participant’s time and the participant one spot ahead of this participant’s time. Labeled as “Time Back from Previous”.

All 3 fields are available based on both chip and clock time, and only work for standard (non Lap) results at this time.

Made Timer Contact Email the default Race Contact Email when creating a Race on RunSignup through RaceDay Scoring.

Updated underlying components throughout the application to ensure compatibility and stability.

Added support for p, P, and B records for Summit Timers.

These kinds of records are from Impulse or Photocell recording devices.

Added Channel Filter for Summit Timer Streams.

You can now specify which channel this Stream will pull reads in from. This will allow you to say that you only want to use reads from a specified channel for a given Stream. It will also allow you to set up multiple Streams referencing the same file, but have the reads split to different Streams based on the channel they were recorded on. If no channel is set, reads from all channels will be processed.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue causing Participant search terms to stick after changing races.

Fixed an issue causing Membership Setting ID is not valid after renewing the scoring file for a RunSignup Race that has Memberships enabled.

Fixed an issue causing some settings to save on Timing Locations when cancel button is used.

2/8/2023 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.27

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue causing RunSignup Custom Question Responses to not sync under certain circumstances.

Fixed an issue causing a crash when importing a Race that included a Report that uses the new “Last Completed Segment” column.

Fixed an issue with Progress Reports not displaying correctly if the Scored Event name included a “+” character.

2/2/2023 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.26

Feature Updates

Added RSU Participant Data Reset Function

This is only necessary under specific scenarios where you need to clear and reimport all participant data from RunSignup. The one scenario that this is useful for would be if the RunSignup registration has updated their Super/Sub Event Settings since the first time you synced participants. When this happens, the old sub event records will be retained in your RDS database, potentially causing issues with scoring or confusion. This is found by using the gear icon in the top right with a race loaded.

Added a View Report button to the Report Builder.

This will allow you to quickly save and view a report to more quickly see the changes you have made.

Added an Edit Report button on the Report View.

Now you can edit a report right from the Report View.

Added a Refresh button on the Report View.

This will allow you to update the Report you’re currently viewing if a race is in progress.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue causing the Show Award Winners Only filter to not show on Lap Age Group Reports.

Fixed an issue causing “Scoring entity ID is not valid” errors when exporting/importing race files.

Fixed an issue causing “Scored Event ID is not valid” errors when exporting/importing race files.

Fixed an issue causing Data Actions to be duplicated when restoring a cloud backup.

1/19/2023 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.25

Feature Updates

Auto-Save Timer Info Fields now will pull from RunSignup Timer Account Info.

The Questions Contact Email, Results Timer Name, Results Timer URL, and Questions Contact URL will now be prefilled with the data that you have set up on your Timer Dashboard under Settings > Timer Info. You can change these values as you like if you want something different for a particular race.

Added a Number of Segments Completed Field to Reports.

This will show a count of how many segments each participant has completed so far.

Added a Race Progress Field to Reports.

This will show whether a Participant is a finisher or still in progress as a field in your report.

Added Last Completed Segment Field to Reports.

This will show the name of the last completed segment for each finisher as a column in reports. This could be nice information to add for long events like Ultramarathons where you want to see the last checkpoint each athlete was seen at, without having to scroll over to see all the split data.

Added “Age Place Only” and “Age Group Desc.” Fields to Reports.

These can be used if you ever need to break out the placement fields from the label fields for the existing “Age Place” field. This will include Top Finisher Categories as well as Age Groups.

Added a pop up message when trying to renew the scoring file for a Race at RunSignup that has not yet renewed it’s registration page yet.

In order to renew a scoring file, you first must renew the registration page.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed issue causing Paces reported in Minutes per KM to not show properly at RunSignup.

Fixed an issue causing a crash when setting up invalid band jumping rules.

Corrected a database upgrade bug that affected users who had upgraded from a version before 3.1.32 to any version after 3.2.2, without installing any version in between.

The gap between versions would have been between November 11th 2021 through March 24th 2022, and could cause app crashes periodically when looking at Raw/Scored Reads. After installing this update, recalculating Raw Reads will fix any of these app crashes.

1/11/2023 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.24

Feature Updates

Updates to RaceDay Hub Announcer Window

  • Added the ability to customize what fields are shown, and in what order.
  • Added a Custom Splash Message field on the Participant Record that will display in the Announcer “Message” field when they are read.
  • Added Gender/Age combo field.
  • Added Team Name and Grade fields.
  • Added State and Country fields.
  • Changed default fields in the display to [Bib, Name, City, Gender/Age, Age Group, Event, Message, Location].

Added the name of the currently selected Scored Event to the Team Type list.

Made Chip and Chip 2 fields available in Report Builder.

Updated Separate Report Section by Gender feature so that it will update existing default reports if changes are made after initial setup.

Added the ability to update teams in the participant import without needing to provide Team Type.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue with IPICO Gun Trigger processing.

Fixed a potential issue causing runaway “uncaught exception in the filterer” notifications.

12/23/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.23

Feature Updates

Updated Top Finisher Category Duplicate function to clear Short Description as well as Description.

Updated “Separate Report Sections by Gender” feature to allow you to select which Genders should have separate report sections created.

Prior to having this, the system would create separate sections for Male, Female, and Non-Binary whenever a Report is created for this Scored Event. Now you can choose which of these three options you would like to be automatically created. By default, just Male and Female are selected.

Added the ability to create a Pre Race Report Section when All Scored Events are selected.

This will combine registrations from all events into a single Report Section and will be sorted alphabetically.

Added Currently Selected Event to Age Groups, Participants, and Teams views.

This should make it more clear that these views are Event specific, and that the counts apply to the currently selected Event.

Added warning message when backing up to the cloud if there is an issue with the Race that could prevent it from being imported.

Sometimes there is an issue with a Race configuration that can cause it to not be able to be loaded onto another computer. Now you will get a warning with details about what is wrong with the setup so you can correct the issue and back it up again.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue causing FinishLynx files to not properly reference the start time of the event if the name of the Race contained quotation marks or commas.

12/15/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.22

Feature Updates

Added “Duplicate” and “Copy to Other Events” functions to Top Finisher Categories.

You can now duplicate single bands within an Event when setting up Top Finisher Categories if you need to quickly copy the same settings to another band, as well as copy all bands from the currently selected Event to other Scored Events. When copying to other Events, you are given the option to select some or all Events.

Added note to error about RunSignup account being locked due to too many failed attempts that will direct you to our support team.

Added explanation tooltip to Registration Events selection in Scored Events.

This note reminds you that in order to combine Registration Events together, they must be the exact same distance, and instructs you how to update that if necessary.

Added the ability to delete Unknown Raw Reads.

Changed “Age Place” column to always use the Short Description from Top Finisher Categories.

Prior to this change, we would always use the Long Description in the Top Finisher labels for this column.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed a bug causing laps to not be calculated correctly for Lap Races when mid lap reads are processed before start/finish reads are.

Fixed a bug causing the participant level setting to accept Pre-Gun Reads to not work.

Fixed a bug saving Streams when editing an existing File Stream and making it a Direct Stream in some circumstances.

Changed ignored reason priority to always mark an unknown read as unknown even if it would have been filtered for other reasons.

12/01/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.21

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue in Lap Races that caused reads that are being ignored due to them being “Within Gap Factor” to display as being ignored due to “Occurrence Not Defined”

Fixed an issue with Progress Reports showing incorrectly.

Updated import/export to automatically correct races with duplicate reports/report sections.

Fixed an issue causing bib numbers to not be cleared in RaceDay Scoring if you are using a bib/chip cross-reference and the bib was cleared at RunSignup or in the CheckIn App.

Fixed an issue causing comparison operators (==, <, >, etc…) to not work for open ended fields.

11/22/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.20

Bugs Fixed

Fixed a bug causing the Event selection to be disabled when adding Participants via Quick Mode.

Fixed an issue causing an error when submitting results o RunSignup that include Custom Fields with column headers that exceed 64 characters.

We will now automatically trim to 64 characters and let the user know that which column headers we have trimmed.

Removed unneeded error from notifications when setting up RaceDay Hub.

11/18/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.19

Bugs Fixed

Fixed default report regeneration.

11/17/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.18

Feature Updates

Updated Progress Report to remove participants that did not start, have been dropped, or have been disqualified from the “Out of” counts.

We have changed the counts so that they will automatically be adjusted for participants that you don’t actually expect to finish. Prior to this change, it would look like you still had some on course if you had participants that were dropped, for instance.

Added Connection Indicator to Announcer Kiosk Display, and added the ability to auto reconnect.

This will now give you the ability to view the connection status of the Announcer Kiosk Display to your RaceDay Hub Server. If at any time connection is lost, the indicator will go red and the system will automatically try to reconnect once the server is back up, or connection to it has been restored.

Added warning to the Folder Path field in the File Stream setup.

We have added a warning to this area when selecting a folder that files will be placed into, reminding the user to never include any files in the folder besides actual timing files. Including other files in the folder you are pointing to can cause system instability.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed a bug causing newly added participants in RaceDay Scoring to fail when syncing to RunSignup.

Fixed an issue causing Bulk Updates using Registration ID to fail.

Fixed “Native filterer error while updating devices.” error.

Fixed a bug causing Corral assignments that were made from a Member Assignment Rule were not causing their Corral Assignment to not be updated at RunSignup.

11/10/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.17

Feature Updates

Added the ability to mark a Location as an Announcer.

This setting removes the need to set up a Segment that uses this location in order for reads collected on it to show up in the RaceDay Hub Announcer Kiosk.

Prior to this change, you would have to have a Segment set up for each Event that you expect to have passings for at your announcer location. Now all you need to do is set up one announcer location, mark it as an announcer, and all reads for all events will show up on the RaceDay Hub Announcer Kiosk.

Added an option to include empty Age Group bands in Age Group Report Sections.

Locked the switching of Registration Events for Participants that are a Sub Event Participant.

These Participants are “copies” of the Super Event Participant. It’s not possible to change only one of the sub-event Participants Registration Events without affecting the others, so we now prevent you from changing the Sub-Event Participant’s Event. If you need to change the event for all, you can do so by changing the Super Event Participant’s Event.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue causing Age Groups that were added one by one to not have their award winners number saved properly, causing those bands to not be included when using the option to show award winners only in Age Group Reports.

Fixed an issue when using the “Contains” operator on an open ended field in a filter.

Fixed an issue causing TFRRS Publish Settings to not show for Reports including more than one TFRRS Report Section.

Fixed an issue causing Auto-Save buttons to not show for reports that include a single Team Summary Report Section.

Fixed an issue causing the Live Results link to not show for Reports with multiple Report Sections.

Fixed an issue when changing the event of a Participant that is a part of a Super Event causing duplicate participants to show in RaceDay Scoring.

11/3/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.16

Feature Updates

Updated Score, Team Score, and Team Place labels to show as “UNA” for unattached runners.

Added support for including unattached runners in TFRRS Reports.

Updated Ignored Raw Reason Codes to show reads that occur after an accepted occurrence as “Occurrence Not Defined” if the system is not expecting any more occurrences on any Segment for this Location.

We will now only ever use “Better Read Selected” for start reads for participants that have a later valid start read.

All finish/split reads after the one selected will be marked as “Occurrence not defined”, unless they are collecting multiple occurrences, in which case they will be marked as “Within Gap Factor” if they are too close to the previously recorded time.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue causing unsaved changes to Corral to get cleared when the next sync occurs.

Fixed an issue causing Corrals deleted at RunSignup to not be removed from RaceDay Scoring.

Fixed a bug causing a label to not show in the Lap Summary Filtering area.

Fixed an issue causing segment updates to not apply to RunSignup Results Splits.

Fixed an issue causing a Websocket client disconnection error whenever a kiosk was disconnected from RaceDay Hub.

10/27/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.15

Feature Updates

Added the ability to send Cumulative times and places instead of Segment times and places when setting up RunSignup Auto-Saves to include Split data.

Typically, Segment times/places will be used for Triathlons where you want to report the individual segment times, and Cumulative times/places will be used for running races where you want to show the total time it took to get to the end of that segment from the very beginning of the Race.

Added DQ’d runners to Athletic.net export.

Added support for sending properly formatted “Yes/No” responses in results to RunSignup.

Prior to this change they would upload as “1” or null.

Added a new Ignored Raw Read Reason code for times that are ignored because they are within the Gap Factor from the previous read at that location.

Added the ability to access File Auto-Saves for Age Group Reports

This opens up the ability to create HTML Scroll Auto-Saves for Age Group Reports.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed issue for Races using the “All” genders option for Age Groups when importing/exporting the Race.

Fixed an issue with importing/exporting Races that have a Report that was set up using the “All” Scored Events option.

Fixed test reads being generated in the wrong timezone.

Improved import error warnings.

10/20/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.14

Feature Updates

Added Qualifiers to Aggregate Team Scoring Setup.

You can now configure a new Team Qualifier option when setting up Team Scoring. These settings allow you to say how many teams and individuals should be marked as qualifiers. By default, individuals are marked as qualifiers if they are not a part of a team that has qualified.

There is another setting to base the individual qualifiers on finish position, which will make it so that individuals must finish within the first X finishers overall, where X is the number you have set in the Individual Qualifiers field. Without this setting enabled, the system will select the first X available, regardless of their finish position.

Note: Enabling these settings does not automatically add the Team Qualifier columns – it must be added manually.

Added Close Finish List Report Sections.

You can now create Close Finish Report Sections for all Scored Event Types besides Relay Team and Lap Events.

This will allow you to set a time value that is considered a close finish, and the report will show pairs of participants within whatever time you have set based on their clock time. We include the time of day of their finish reads by default to assist with checking your camera system to verify finishing order.

This will use either chip time or clock time based on what was being used to score participants in the Scored Event setup at the time the report was created.

Note: The report will not update if a Scored Event changes between chip/clock time scoring – you will need to delete and re-add the close report report if you change the chip/clock time setting after this report has been created.

Made Report Section Headers “Sticky” in Scrolling HTML Files.

Headers will now stick to the top of the page when scrolling through reports. This works for multi-section reports as well.

Added Ability to set Font Size when creating HTML Scroll Files and Auto-Saves.

**Made HTML Scroll Speed consistent regardless of how many rows are in the report. **

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue causing finishers to not show in reports after importing a race until you saved Scored Events.

Fixed an issue causing an error when importing lap races.

10/12/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.13

Feature Updates

Num. Winners will automatically populate when adding individual Age Groups.

It will default to 3, but will follow from values that have been set if you had used “Create Ranges” to set up other Age Groups for that Event.

Updated Corral Assignment Syncing to allow for RSU changes to override RDS changes.

Previously we would not allow a change to a Corral made at RunSignup to override a change made in RaceDay Scoring. This was to prevent RSU from constantly reverting changes made to Corral in RaceDay Scoring when we used to not be able to update RunSignup’s Corral Assignments.

Now we are syncing like other data points, where the last change made always wins, regardless of whether it’s made on RunSignup or in RaceDay Scoring.

Added the ability to set up a RunSignup Partner Token so that Races you create in RaceDay Scoring and upload to RunSignup can automatically be associated with your RunSignup Partner Account.

This is set in the App Settings (gear in upper right) below the serial number entry, and will be applied by default to all new Races you publish to RunSignup. It can be edited when publishing if you for some reason need to make one Race not associated with your Partnership.

Added a check to prevent using the same Result Set for multiple Reports or Auto-Saves within the same Race.

This can cause issues, and should never be necessary to do, so we now prevent it.

Added the ability to map all participants in an import that are missing an Event to a specified Event in RaceDay Scoring.

You can now import spreadsheets that do not have an event included at all, and we will allow you to say that all participants should be placed into a specified Event. Alternatively, you can also decide on a case by case basis which participants should go into which Event as well.

Added the ability to run Data Actions on Teams

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an error – Native Filterer error while updating entities

10/06/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.12

Feature Updates

Updated Top Finisher Category Links in Reports to use Top Finisher Category Label.

Prior to this change, the labels for custom top finisher categories would not use the custom label, and would instead just say “Top Male” or “Top Female”.

Added the ability to filter “All” Scored Event Team Rosters Report Sections by Registration Event.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed issue causing status flags to not be properly controlled by read data if a Timing Location name had been changed and Scored Events had not been saved after that change.

Fixed an issue causing an infinite loop of Team Sync Failures.

Removed the ability to filter “All” Scored Event Team Rosters Report Sections by Scored Event.

This would cause reports to not work properly, so we removed this ability and enabled the ability to filter by Registration Event as noted above.

9/28/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.11

Feature Updates

Added the ability to fully sync Corrals with RunSignup

Prior to this change, we could only pull down Corral information from RunSignup. We were not able to add or edit any Corral information. Now with this change we are fully syncing the Corral structure and assignments with RunSignup, so if you add a Corral in RaceDay Scoring it will show up in RunSignup, and vice versa.

Please note that Corrals added to RunSignup after a Race has been set up in RaceDay Scoring will not show up until you go to Participant Sync and click Save Sync Settings to force a refresh of the Race settings.

Added the ability to create Team Rosters Report for All Scored Events

Now when adding a Report Section you will be able to select the Team Rosters Report after using the “All” Scored Event selection option. This will create a Report that shows team rosters broken out by Team, but includes participants from all Scored Events within each Team section.

Added new Ignore Raw Read Reason Code: “Prior to Assigned Start Time”

Reads in this state used to be ignored due to them being “Filtered by Time”. This should help when troubleshooting ignored Raw Reads, especially if you accidentally set your start times incorrectly.

Made a change to the TFRRS Report and Upload to also send Participants that have not started.

Made Team Names Clickable Throughout the App.

Added RunSignup Login/Logout Buttons to Green Race Toolbar.

Optimized Scored Event Setup for Lap Races and Races with lots of Registration Events.

We saw performance issues with Races that have many Scored Events set up for Lap Scoring, as well as Races that have a lot of Registration Events. We will now show checkboxes for all available Registration Events only if there are less than 10 Registration Events in the Race. If there are more than that, we will display the selection as a multi-select (similar to what is used when associating a Stream to a Timing Location).

Added the ability to include Custom Questions in Report Templates.

We discovered that using a Report Template with a Custom Question in it causes issues after creating a Report for another Race using that template. We now support this, and allow you to map a new question in the Race that you are using the Report Template for.

Added the currently selected Scored Event to the Segments Setup View.

This should make it more clear what Segments you are currently looking at/editing.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed issue causing Custom Question Reponses for “Yes/No” Type Questions to show as blank when included as a column in a Report.

Fixed an issue when transferring participants if also changing some other part of that participant’s information at the same time.

Fixed an issue for XC races that were previously scored with Race Director that were renewed and scored with RaceDay Scoring this year, that would cause an error with Divisions when publishing results.

Made a change to the Raw Reads display so that times are correctly adjusted for timezone when viewing the race on a computer in a different timezone than the one it was scored in.

9/15/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.10

Feature Updates

Updated Duration Input to auto-advance after entering two characters in the hours position.

Now you won’t have to press the tab key after entering in two digits into the duration fields, but it does restrict you from entering anything more than 2 digits. If you need to enter in an hour value over 99 hours into a duration input (we think this is very rare), you can copy and paste the value into the hours field.

Reports with invalid configurations can now be edited and fixed.

Sometimes Reports can become unusable if something that they are relying on in the setup has been deleted. For instance, if you have team reports that rely on a team type that you’ve since deleted, that Report will no longer work properly.

Before this update, if you tried to edit or delete the Report that was not working, it would open up the Report Builder with no data in it – as if you were creating a new Report entirely. Now, when you are in this state, you will be able to edit the bad report and update the Team Type that it’s using to fix it up instead of having to delete all reports and rebuild them manually.

9/8/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.9

Feature Updates

Added MileSplit Report Section Type and Export Function.

You can now create MileSplit Exports from Reports that have MileSplit Report Sections added to them. So if you need to generate a MileSplit Export, first you need to create a Report that includes MileSplit Report Sections for each Event you have in your Race, then export that Report using the new MIleSplit Export Option.

It’s important to not change the order of the Report Sections that are generated for each Scored Event when you add them to the Report. They must be grouped together by Scored Event in order to meet MileSplit’s required formatting.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed issue causing log files to grow too large.

Fixed an issue causing Corral Changes to not automatically update existing read selection status.

Fixed an issue causing times in the Lap Details views to be displayed in an incorrect time zone when not in EST.

Fixed an issue causing multiple instances of the same Segment to show up when opening up a Segment Panel for Lap Events.

Added more specific error messages when reports fail to rebuild automatically.

Usually this is due to some part of the setup that this report relied on no longer being present – like a deleted Team Type, for instance.

9/2/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.8 Hotfix

Bugs Fixed

Fixed issue causing some systems to crash when installing the 3.3.7 update.

Those who currently have this error will need to download the installer from your RunSignup Timer Dashboard > Software page.

Fixed issue causing an error that would show for Race Result streaming.

8/31/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.7

Feature Updates

Added Raw Read Announcer Kiosk

On the main app landing page there’s a new button to set up an Announcer Kiosk. This uses the RaceDay Hub to send a stream of all raw read data to an announcer feed that includes participant info like name, timing location of the read, event, age group, city, bib/chip and time of day of the read. We also show a message for users whose birthdays are within +/- 7 days.

This will create a new window that you can display on a separate monitor or any kind of display that you can connect to your computer. It also can be set up on a separate computer that is connected to the same local network as your main scoring computer.

Through the settings menu you can control the text size and which Timing Locations should be included in the announcer feed (by default it’s all).

This leaderboard is much faster than the previous implementation, as we do not have to wait for the raw reads to be processed into Scored Reads. This means that the data will display in these leaderboards in less than 5ms from the time that the Connector sees them, instead of around 5 seconds.

Added the ability to import a spreadsheet of participants with Team names without having to provide a Team Type or set any up in advance.

It’s typical for XC races to start from a simple spreadsheet without any Team Type info. This new feature allows you to create a single Team Type that all teams will be associated with during the import. This should reduce the amount of back and forth you have to do when setting up simple Team scoring Races where there’s only one Team Type.

Added the ability to process changes to Teams by importing a CSV that includes the Reg Group ID.

This works similar to the Participant Import, where if you include an ID it will process the import as an update instead of an add. This could be useful if you ever need to make bulk changes to teams.

Updated “No Event for Bib” Ignored Raw Read Reason Message

This message shows when the Event associated with the bib that is associated with the read encountered is not found in the list of valid events for the given Timing Location/Occurrence count. The system looks through all Segments for the Event and if it can’t find any Segments that use this Timing Location/Occurrence combination for the given Event, it will ignore the read for this reason.

We have updated this message to be more descriptive – “Location is Not in any Segment in this Scored Event.”, hopefully pointing timers to the right place to fix the problem, which is either in Segment Setup or Scored Event. It typically means that the Segment Setup isn’t correct, or the wrong Location was used on the Scored Event.

Added Quick Report Links to Multi-Section Reports

In a previous update we added quick links to Age Group sections from the top of an Age Group Report. We have applied this same functionality to work the same way for any Report that has multiple sections within it.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue causing changes being made to participant data to be lost if reads come in while you are editing.

Made changes to prevent unnecessary RunSignup Participant updates to fire when reads cause a change in the Participant Status.

This should reduce the amount of data used while scoring, and improve performance in locations with poor internet reception.

Fixed an issue with Report Templates that would cause you to not be able to add new columns to a Report that was created from a Template.

Fixed an issue causing the setting to allow pre gun times for a Participant to be reset at the next sync.

Fixed an issue that would allow you to save a Custom Computed Field without anything selected, causing errors.

Fixed an issue that would allow you to try to publish results to RunSignup for Local Races that do not have a RunSignup Race to publish to.

8/18/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.6

Feature Updates

Added FinishLynx Report Section and Auto-Save option

You can now create a Report that includes a FinishLynx Report Section when you select “All” Events that will give you the ability to set up a FinishLynx Auto-Save. This Auto-Save will export .evt, .ppl, and .sch files automatically as a race is ongoing, so that you can update your FinishLynx software with up to date participant information.

Added HTML Scroll Report Export

This is available for any Report under the Export menu > HTML Scroll. You can set a scroll speed, and the report will automatically return to the top once it has scrolled through all rows.

This is compatible with the File Auto-Save system, so you could create a scrolling HTML file, then auto-save to it to use as a Race is ongoing to present on a leaderboard or large monitor display system either connected to your scoring computer, or on another computer using Dropbox/Google Drive to host the file.

Added Time Entry Field Helper Text to Time of Day Fields and Duration Fields.

We have added a label telling the user that the formatting is in HH:MM:SS.sss format for both time of day and duration entry fields.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed a bug causing check-ins made via Data Check Reports to not save.

8/11/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.5

Feature Updates

Updated USAT Export to include Participants missing state or zip codes.

This would cause some international participants to not show in exports if they did not have a state or zip code provided. This will allow these participants to be included in the export data.

Updated Race List sort functionality so that it is retained when closing the app and starting it again.

Updated Results and Participant Sync to always stay synchronized with eachother.

Syncing of Participant data and Result data will now always run on the same interval – every 30 seconds. This change was made to reduce issues where we could cause RunSignup Results to lock up due to syncs happening to participant records and result records for a participant at the same time.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue that could cause the app to crash after clearing chip cross reference.

Fixed an issue causing Actual Start Times and Corral Start Times to not be cleared when renewing a Race.

Fixed an issue causing reads from Backup Streams to be selected even if a time was available on a Main Stream.

Fixed an issue with Custom Computed Fields causing race exports/backups to not be able to be imported on another computer.

Fixed an issue with multi-segment aggregate team scored events which would cause teams to not properly show as incomplete.

Fixed an issue causing Corral assignment imports to not work properly when Corral names were numbers.

8/4/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.4

Feature Updates

Added the ability to save Data Check Reports.

You can now create and save Data Check Reports to reference later. These reports will stick around when exporting/importing a Race.

Added more options for filtering the Race List.

Prior to this change you could only update the filter to not show passed Races. Now you can show all, just those in the future, just those that have passed, or just those within X number of days.

These settings persist when you exit the app now, so you can keep the same filtering applied whenever you start the app up.

Added PC Timer/Mobile Timing App File Stream

This is a new File Stream format that you can use to import backup timing files created by PC Timer or the Mobile Timing App.

Added the ability to type TAB into the field delimiter area when setting up a custom File Stream.

Added the ability to accept Pre-Gun Chip Start Times for a specific Participant.

Prior to this update, you could only set this on the Scored Event level. Now if you had someone with an early chip start time that you want to use (normally these would be ignored if they happened before the start time of day), then you can go to their participant record and change this setting so that the system will take their early chip start time into consideration.

Added Scored Event Name to Entire Race Segment Labels.

This will help in identifying which entire race segment you are using when adding to reports or setting up custom computed fields. Now they will show as “5k Entire Race Segment”, for instance. This will be applied after saving Scored Events after getting the update.

Updated Participant Quick Mode Entry to allow including Custom Questions.

Prior to this update, you could not include RunSignup Questions when limiting what fields are displayed when using Quick Mode.

Updated duration inputs for Gap Factor and Time Custom Question Responses to make it easier to enter the correct format.

We now show the colons and decimal so that you will no longer mistake hours for minutes, for example.

Added Age Group Shortcut Links at the top of the Age Group Report.

Now you can easily navigate to a specific age band or top finisher category when viewing the Age Group Report. This is applied to both HTML exports and the Report view in the app.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue causing Auto-Save “Plus” buttons to be displayed to the side of the icon instead of beneath.

Fixed a bug causing chip codes to not be saved if you are adding a participant and include the chip code as you are adding them.

7/20/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.3

Feature Updates

Updated Result Set Selection when Publishing Results to RunSignup.

If you are adding an Auto-save and no results exist for that Event on RunSignup yet, we will default the Auto-save to create a new Result Set.

If there is a single Result Set available, we will automatically select that Result Set in the dropdown, and will let you know via a pop up message that it has been selected and will overwrite any existing results in it.

If there are multiple Result Sets for the Event at RunSignup, you will be prompted to select which Result Set to use manually from the dropdown, or you can select to create a new Result Set.

Added the ability to import a Cloud Backup within a Race.

You can now import a Cloud Backup while working on a Race without having to exit the Race, delete it, and import from a new backup. You have the option to import just the setup or the entire race. The setup only option will not overwrite existing reads, while the full import will replace the reads with any from the backup you are importing.

Added more fields to the Data Check Report.

The following fields have been added as field options to display on the data check report:

Clock Start Time of Day Chip Start Time of Day Finish Time of Day, Chip time, Clock time, Scored Event, Age Grade.

We have also updated the default column set that is included in the Data Check Report:

Name, Gender, Age, Scored Event, Bib, Clock Start Time of Day, Chip Start Time of Day, Finish Time of Day, Chip Time, Clock Time.

This will help you be able to quickly identify participants who have missed a start read, but were read at the finish, for instance.

Updated Data Check Report to show all Super/Sub Event Participants.

We used to filter the results so we would not show duplicate participants, but now we will show all instances of each Participant so you can take action on any “version” of Participants who are in multiple Scored Events via a Super/Sub Event setup on RunSignup.

Updated Corrals to Prevent Setting Syncing Confusion.

Currently, RunSignup does not allow adding, editing, or deleting of Corrals remotely. This means that we can only get updates from RunSignup about Corrals, and not push changes back to RunSignup.

We have made some changes that prevent you from editing RunSignup Corral information, which would be overwritten the next time the sync was saved anyway, and have prevented the deletion of RunSignup Corrals, as they would repopulate the next time the sync was saved as well. This should help avoid confusion if you happen to save sync settings and see your changes to RunSignup Corrals disappear in your Corral setup.

Added Unattached Runner support for Cross Country events.

This is a Report Section level setting found in the Filters & Sorts area. By default, runners without a team association will now be included in Team Finisher List Report Sections, but they will not have a score or Team listed. They will not affect the scores of the other participants in the list. If you do not want to include unattached runners, you can update the setting found in the Report under the Filters & Sorts section.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue causing exports/imports to fail after adjusting Scored Events and/or Segments.

Fixed an issue causing reads to not map to participants after changing a bib number that was used by a team to an individual participant.

Fixed an issue causing RunSignup to not properly display column order when Splits and Divisions are included in Result Sets.

Fixed an issue that would cause custom fields published to RunSignup to display twice.

Fixed an issue with how RSU will display Splits Time of Day fields.

Fixed an issue impacting Lap Races that have multiple Lap options and include Non-Timed Starts in the setup.

Fixed an issue impacting Lap Races that have a maximum of one Lap, and are set to finish immediately, that will some Participants to not have their DNF flag lifted as it should be.

7/7/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.2

Feature Updates

Change “Splits Time of Day” Field so that it can be published to native RunSignup Splits.

We publish this field in military time format so that it can be used in conjunction with RunSignup Video Results for Races that have multiple start times per Event.

Changed Report Search so that search terms do not go away after loading or editing a Report.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue causing exports/imports to fail after adjusting Scored Events and/or Segments.

Fixed an issue that would allow you to try to add a Scored Read without having a Stream attached to the Location that you are adding the read for.

Fixed an issue causing Custom Questions/Fields that are in “Time” format to display in RunSignup Results in milliseconds instead of standard time format.

Fixed a bug causing the Resolve Unknown Reads view to not properly display the bib number of the read from the cross-reference file.

Fixed an issue causing some time of day timestamps to show in the wrong time zone.

Fixed an issue with USAT Export causing Segments to not display in the correct order.

Note: We use the Segment Order in the setup and select the first 5 Segments to place into the 5 available Segment Time “slots” that USAT accepts.

Fixed an issue causing USAT Exports to not include USAT Membership IDs if the Race had USAT Memberships set up to be Event specific instead of just at the Race level.

6/30/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.3.1

Updated database to improve stability and prevent missing/invalid ID errors.

This version includes a major update to the database to fix some issues we have been seeing for a long time that would cause you to have to save Scored Events or rebuild Reports to fix them.

Please note that this installation may take longer than normal to update as we upgrade your local database of Races.

Additionally, any computers that update to this version will not be able to revert back to an older version of scoring after the database upgrade is complete. We do backup databases between updates so it’s possible to recover if necessary – contact raceday@runsignup.com for instructions on reverting if needed.

Races created on older versions of scoring will be compatible with this version, but races created or loaded on this new version of scoring will not be compatible with older versions of scoring. Keep this in mind if you have many computers sharing backups – it is critical that you have all of your computers on either this updated 3.3.1 version or all on 3.2.X versions.

Finally, because of some changes to the way Auto-Saves are configured, any Auto-Saves created on older versions of the software need to be saved before unpausing them. Before saving the custom fields and splits will not populate at RunSignup – all you need to do is to save them and it will correct itself.

Feature Updates

Add functionality to look up existing result sets when deciding if you would like to publish a new one or overwrite an existing one.

You can now select existing Result Sets at RunSignup if you would like to reuse them instead of adding a new one when setting up a new auto-save.

Added support for sending new Custom Fields to Existing Result Set.

You can now include newly added columns in a report to an existing RunSignup Auto-save instead of having to delete it.

Added pop up when making changes to Reports and Segments to remind users that they must save any existing auto-saves in order to apply the recent changes to RunSignup Results.

All you need to do to update the auto-save is to click “Auto-Save” on a Report, then click save settings. There is no need to click the pencil icon to update the individual auto-save streams.

Additional columns in Reports now default to send to RunSignup as Arbitrary Text.

When setting up the Auto-Save you will now see all of the additional columns without having to open up the “Advanced Settings” area, and they will default to send as Arbitrary Text. You can always change what format they will send if you like.

Added support for sending “Splits Time of Day” and “Splits w/ Place” fields to RunSignup Results.

Updated Auto-Save setup on Reports with multiple sections.

We now show the auto-save settings for all sections that will be uploaded up front instead of only having one settings area that gets duplicated to the other auto-save settings panels after the setup is complete. This was confusing, as users would not understand that multiple result sets were going to be created.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue causing imports to fail in a specific scenario.

Fixed an issue causing Corral changes made by a Data Action to not display correctly when viewing the Corral Members list.

6/22/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.2.19

Feature Updates

Added an option in the Segment Setup to Hide a Segment from Report Columns.

This will make it so that any Segments that have this setting enabled will not be included in any of the “Splits” type columns that include all Segments. In addition, these Segments will not be pushed to RunSignup Results. This is useful if you need to create a Segment for an announcer that you don’t want to include in reports, or if you have other Segments that you use for checkpoints that you don’t want to show in results. This is also useful for any Rest Segments that you have that you may not want to include in results.

You can always add individual Segment fields for Segments even if they are hidden from the “Splits” columns.

Added an option when setting up Custom Computed Fields to automatically create a “display” version of a calculated time.

Now you don’t have to manually create a new field based on the one you just made that just has a “ms2time” transformation applied in order to display a custom computed field in a standard time format.

Made minor adjustment to Team Type selection dialog to better accommodate long Team Type Names.

Added the ability to manually mark Data Issues as Resolved.

Bugs Fixed

Updated Race list with better paging, and will automatically switch to page one if updating filters.

Fixed an issue with Segment specific adjustments that would cause an adjustment to one Segment to apply to others.

Fixed an issue that would show a warning for reports including more than one section when it should not.

Fixed an issue causing Data Issues to not resolve when the thing that caused them had been fixed.

6/15/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.2.18

Feature Updates

USAT Export Option for Reports

We have added a USAT Export option from the Export dropdown on a Report. This will produce a spreadsheet that is in the format the USAT expects. You must have separate filtered Reports for each USAT Category, as we require you to tell the system the type of participants within the Report you’re exporting.

The categories are: Age Group, Open, Elite, Clydesdale/Athena, Para, and Relay.

Added Scored Event Option to Filter Reads Before Start Reads

This setting with ignore all times for a Participant until they record a chip start time. Once they record a chip start, we will ignore all reads prior to it, and accept any reads after it.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue when creating Custom Computed Fields based on other Custom Computed Fields that would make some previously created fields not available in the existing field dropdown

Fixed an issue causing Splits fields to not respect the Timing Precision set on the Dashboard

Now if you display times out through the millisecond, the time values in the “Splits” field will also show out through the millisecond, for instance.

Fixed an issue causing “Splits w/ Place” field to not populate Split Places for Relay Team Reports

Made a change to prevent inaccurate warning for reports containing multiple sections.

Fixed an issue causing a failure to import with an improperly formatted bib/chip cross-reference file

Fixed an issue that could cause database corruption if you deleted a Race, then closed RaceDay Scoring before a Race had time to finish deleting it

Fixed an issue causing Reports to not include Corral filters correctly after export/import

6/10/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.2.17 Hotfix

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue when setting up Top Finisher Categories using the “By Rule” Band Jumping option.

Fixed an issue causing Backups to Cloud not working within a Race if that Race had not been backed up in the past.

6/8/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.2.16

Feature Updates

Report Template Import/Export Support

You can now import and export report template packages between computers. This is helpful if you have a set of templates that you typically use that you want to move over to another computer.

Added the Ability to Renew a Scoring Setup.

There is a new option in the Race List to renew a Race. This allows you to keep all of your scoring setup but pull down all the new event year registration information from RunSignup.

Items like Timing Locations, Streams, Segments, Reports, Age Groups, Top Finishers, Reports, etc… will all be copied to the new year. Reads will be removed, and Participants replaced with the new Participant data.

We do require you to map any variable fields that could change year over year. Specifically, things like Corrals, Team Types, Custom Questions are things that typically can change when a Race renews, so you must map what is used in the old setup with what is in the new year version of the Race. This is critical if you use RunSignup Custom Question Responses to drive Top Finisher Categories or Report Filters.

Added the Ability to Name Race Backups When Creating a Cloud Backup of a Race.

Now you have the option to include a name when you create a Cloud Backup. This will make it easier to identify different versions of a setup.

Added the Ability to Create a Cloud Backup With a Race Loaded.

In the green toolbar near the Force Sync button, you can now quickly create a Cloud Backup. You no longer need to exit a Race to back it up to the Cloud.

Added Entire Race Gun/Corral Start Time of Day Field to Custom Computer Field Builder.

You can now use the Entire Race Gun/Corral Start Time of Day Field when building calculated fields. This could be used as a way to build a “Chip Difference” field to show how long after the actual start time a participant crossed the start line.

Changed IPICO default Stream Settings to show ActiveTiming Streams.

Since ActiveTiming users use IPICO hardware, it made sense to allow those who set their default system to IPICO to be able to add an ActiveTiming Stream.

Added RDS Participant ID to Participant View/Edit

Bugs Fixed

Fixed issue with import setup only races under certain circumstances

Fixed an issue causing Super Event Participants’ Results Panel in View/Edit Participants to not wrap Sub Event Names in the Event Selection area.

Fixed issue causing Team Name search to not work properly in reports

Fixed an issue causing the shutdown prompt to show beneath other full-screen dialogs.

5/25/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.2.15

Feature Updates

Added the ability to customize Aggregate Team Detail Report Filters to only show those that scored.

This is found in Team Detail Report Sections when building Reports under the “Filters & Sorts” section.

This will hide all participant’s who weren’t used towards counting the group’s aggregate placement. Participants who were not originally scored, but were used as Tie-Breakers, will not be included in the shown list.

Added the ability to import adjustments to specific segments.

This is found under Participants > Actions.

This will allow you import Segment adjustment times for a specified participant. Prior to this change you could only import adjustments to the “Entire Race Segment” field. You will need to create a spreadsheet with a column for a reference to the participant (RunSignup Registration ID or RDGO Participant ID), and each Segment that needs to be adjusted. The name of the headers besides the ID will need to match the Segment name in RDS exactly.

Added “Aggregate Custom Field” options when creating Custom Computed Fields.

This is found under Scoring > Computed Fields > Add/Edit Custom Fields.

This will allow you to build custom computed fields that are based on the average, minimum, or maximum of any number of other fields. This can be used to produce a single field that holds the minimum time over three different segments, for instance.

You could create a millisecond version of this field to sort by, then create a readable time to display, then create a report that sorts by and displays this custom field if you needed to score a race based on the min. time over some selection of segments.

Bugs Fixed

Change Participant Export so that Sub-Event Participants have their event name replaced with their Sub-Event name instead of their Super-Event name.

So instead of “Bundle” it would show “5k”, “10k” for each sub-event version of the super-event participant.

Fixed An Issue when entering Time formatted Custom Fields.

Fixed An Issue with manual Marker Reads.

Removed unneeded database version log message from notifications.

5/12/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.2.14 Hotfix

Bugs Fixed

Corrected an issue causing the in app updater to stall at 100%

v3.2.12 introduced a bug with the updater that would cause the app to stall at 100% when installing an update. It’s entirely safe to force close the app once it has reached 100%, and the update will be installed properly.

This fix will apply the next time an update is available, so you will still have to force close after installing this update.

For now, if you notice that the installer is stuck at 100% you can use CTRL + ALT + DELETE and force close the app without fear of harming anything.

5/11/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.2.13

Feature Updates

Added warning when saving MyLaps Readlite File Streams and Chronotrack File Streams if you do not have the date override set.

These two systems do not include date in the passing data, and our default is to use the current system date when bringing reads it. This can cause problems if you are ever collecting reads not on the actual race date, so we are now forcing you to select a date override when saving. Generally you would want to use the “Set to Race Date” feature so that all incoming reads will use the date of the Race.

Note: If you are scoring a multi-day event with one of these stream types, set the date override to the first day, as we have found that these systems will export data over 24 hours by counting up the hours further (25 hours) instead of resetting to 1 hour times on the next day.

Added Gender Labels to Top Finisher Category Names in Reports.

Now if you have a Top Finisher Category called “Overall”, we will show the gender label in the “Age Place” column. For example Male and Female “Overall” winners will now show like this: “1: M Overall” or “1: F Overall”, whereas before this change both would show as “1: Overall”.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue causing times to not display in RSU Announcer Links.

RSU will now display the time of day that the read occurred at the location for these links.

Fixed an issue causing reports with individual Segment Place fields to not run.

Fixed an issue causing Data Actions to not fire on Super Event Participants.

5/5/2022 – RaceDay Scoring v3.2.12

Feature Updates

Added Option to Create a Cloud Backup when Exiting the App or Switching Races.

For any Races that have had Cloud Backups created for them, we will now present the option to create a Cloud Backup when you exit the software or switch races. This will be helpful on site so that Timers in the field will remember to back things up once they’ve finished scoring the Race.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue when importing Setup Only Export files.

Added better error messaging when report is in a bad state and needs to be re-saved.

Fixed an issue causing segments in the Splits column to not be displayed in the order you have set up in the Segment setup.

Fixed an issue that allowed users to create multiple Streams with the same Hardware Name, which could cause reads to not be selected properly.

Fixed a few issues with Ambiguous Read Pair selection.

Fixed an issue when importing adjustment times with a CSV.

Removed Incompatible Sort Fields

Some sort fields that are not necessary have been removed like Segment Places and Team Aggregate fields. To sort by the fastest Segment, just select the Segment Time field instead of using Place, and it will give you the same result.

4/28/2022 RaceDay Scoring v3.2.10

Feature Updates

Added Data Check Function to Data Actions

This is the first version of a new function in RaceDay Scoring that will allow you to search for Participants who meet some conditions (for instance, all of those who missed their start read but have a finish read, or all of those who have an age grade over 90), then manually apply a change to them, with the option to select all, or pick and chose which ones you would like to update.

When you search for Participants, it will present a table of all participants who match the filtering you have set up, and there will be a checkbox in each row. You can then apply any changes you like to the Participants in the Data to Change section by using the “Update Selected Rows” button.

You could make any change you like to them. For instance, you could disqualify all those who missed their chip start but have a finish read, or you could update a Custom Field that you have set up that you use to indicate suspicious participants that have an Age Grade value over 90.

We will be adding more features and options to this function in the future, including things like preset Data Check Reports for common use cases, the ability to save and reference Data Check Reports later (right now the search fields and settings go away after you close the report), and the ability to include additional fields to display like chip read times of day for each Participant.

Note: In order to use this function on an existing Race, you should save the Scored Events page before using, as some new fields will not be available until you save Scored Events after the update is applied.

Updated the Participants > Actions > Fix Unknown Reads Feature To Only Show One Instance Per Participant.

We used to show every instance of an unknown in this area – now we will only show one so it’s much easier to manage resolving unknown reads.

Made a change to how restrictive we are with Auto-Saves when Participant Sync is disabled.

We used to restrict all auto-save types if Participant Sync was disabled and you had pending items in the Sync Queue. Now we only restrict RunSignup Auto-Saves, meaning that you no longer need to have Participant Sync enabled to use RaceDay Hub Kiosk Auto-Saves.

Added Option to Delete Associated RunSignup Results When Deleting All Reports.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue causing errors when using RunSignup Announcer Links with Relay Teams.

Fixed an issue when adding local Relay Team Types that could cause you to not be able to build Reports combining Team Types.

Fixed an issue causing Report Section Type description tooltips to not show when hovering over the button to add them to a Report.

Feature Updates

Removed Age Place column for Default Age Group Reports

Since the Place column and Age Place column would be the same for Age Group Report Sections, we removed this.

Updated terminology from Team Classification to Team Type throughout the app.

We were inconsistent by using Team Type and Team Classification to describe the same thing in a few spots. We have changed this to always refer to them as Team Types throughout the app.

Show bib number from crossreference when encountering unknown chip read.

Now it will be easier to figure out unknown reads when using a chip cross reference. Before you would have to look up the chip code in the crossreference to figure out the bib number it was related to, now we show the bib number in the Raw Reads view.

Updated Timing Location Max. Occur. Count Label for Lap Race Timing Locations.

All Timing Locations marked as a Lap Timing Location allow for unlimited occurrences. We have updated the label on the Timing Locations List to show this.

Bugs Fixed

Fixed an issue causing the Team Type Count to not display in the Team Types List.

Fixed an issue causing custom fields that are Radio or Dropdown type to not be selectable when setting up a Data Action to change their selection.

Fixed an issue causing Raw Reads to not show as locked in some circumstances.

Fixed an issue with importing Age Groups.
