We have released a whole new generation of Team Results capabilities on RunSignup. We have an Open Team Results API that scoring platforms like The Race Director and RaceDay Scoring can use for posting more typical race and complex team scoring like Cross Country. We have also included Challenges to automatically produce Team Results when they have Groups/Teams turned on.
When the race director has turned on Groups/Teams, participants can create or join a team as they register. When they start entering in their activities (distance, elevation, time, pushups, minutes of yoga, etc.) will automatically be tallied. The results will show on a special page that is currently linked from the main Results Page (we are going to be doing a number of UX enhancements over the coming weeks, so things may move a bit):
Challenge Team Results have a number of features on the summary page:
- Display multiple team types, like Teams of 2 and Teams of 4
- Auto-refresh the results
- Quick search for team
- Total Tallies
- Quick link to each team page (note – all tallies are not yet showing on the individual team pages, but should in a week or so)
Also, remember that team totals and information is also available on the Groups/Teams page:
Expect to see some more nice goodies for teams, like goals and milestones and better UX over the coming few weeks!
