Larger race organizations that operate large or multiple races have a need for more detailed analytics and quick views to see how they are doing. We have provided a number of reports to help with this over the years, but they were never customizable and not all in one place – until this coming week! […]
Partners are organizations who manage multiple races. Over the next month or two we will be making a whole host of Partner Dashboard changes. You may have noticed a new skin to the dashboard was released yesterday. There are two much bigger changes coming. One is a new Race List view that we hope will […]
The Philadelphia Marathon is using RunSignUp Sites to drive their dynamic website. We recently created a new feature that allowed them to put nice graphics to highlight new interactive map storyboards (really cool – check them out) on their front page (highlighted by the red box in this screen shot): To do this, simply create […]
You can now add a custom URL link for the “Home” button on your Partner Website (not available to race websites) that will redirect to another website. This is convenient for timers who are using the nice calendar and result features on Partner Websites, but want to redirect other traffic back to their main website. […]
Partners now have the option to hide the Sunfrog shirt giveaway trial offer for their races. It is under Races ->Partner on the Partner Dashboard:
We have a couple of large races like the Philadelphia Marathon and the Fifth Third River Bank Run that are now using our Partner Website infrastructure to host their race website. They are finding it more secure than WordPress, and quicker to add content and take advantage of their race database on RunSignUp. And it […]
We have added the ability to download Add-On reports by purchase date in addition to registration date. This is useful for seeing new purchases made after registration.
We are at the ChronoTrack Conference this week presenting with ChronoTrack on the meaning of this new partnership. Here is what we are presenting and discussing. There are several strategic reasons for this partnership: Allow customer choice with an open approach – picking the technology they want to use Integrate the data so it is shared […]
We have added the ability exclude certain Race or Timer results from the Results Listing Widget that many running stores, partners and timers use to automatically show results as they are posted. This option is available to Partners on their Widget Creation or Edit page.
When a partner has races all in one state, then our national location map will narrow down to the single state. For example, the Ohio Challenge Series: National: State:
We have added a “speed bump” – this is a pop-up warning message that warns users they are leaving a site. One of our customers is a bank – The Fifth Third RiverBank Run – and they are required to give a pop-up when there is a link that takes the user off of their […]
We have added the capability to set the Meta Description to each page under the Advanced Page Options in each page on Partner Websites. The Meta Description is typically what is shown on a Google Search. For example: The setup is under the Advanced Page Options as you create or edit each page on your Partner […]
We have added a registration date to Partner Participant Reports:
The option to only view incomplete registrations across all races as a Partner is now available:
We have added an option for customers who are partners and manage a number of races to give employees access to just the Participant Reports. It is on the Partner Access page:
Partners can now see a report across all of their races and events on how many participants are signed up and how many remaining spots are open: This report is available from the Partner Dashboard under Participants -> Reports:
The home dashboard page for Partners with the list of races and number of participants can now be downloaded as a spreadsheet. The button is at the bottom of the page: The report looks like this:
Partners with multiple races and over 5,000 participants per year have access to a Demographic Report. We have added the ability to download this into a CSV.
You can now hide the Partner logo that display on all Partner Race Websites as well as the Partner Logo on the confirmation emails with a simple setting in Miscellaneous Setting.
We have added a new option that permits a user to have access to just editing the Partner Website features. This allows partners like Timers and race management companies to be able to have people assigned to just maintaining the website.
We have added an option where a Partner (like a Timer) can be notified any time there is a new race or a race has been changed by one of their race directors. This is in the EMail Notifications page of the Partner Dashboard.
We have added a CSV download for the Partner Comparison Reports.
We have updated the automatic notifications we send out when simple race listings are created. This is for customers using our Race Calendar widget – for example running stores or running clubs. When race directors want to just put up a simple listing (rather than use RunSignUp for registration), that now triggers a notification to […]
We have added a new Calendar Results Widget option for partners that is the same look and feel as the option available in Partner Websites. Configuration option is as shown below:
Partners can now replace the RunSignUp logo on the top left of race website pages with their own logo. This is particularly nice for race series who want to use the nicely formatted RunSignUp Website pages instead of the widget. Set this up on your Partner Dashboard under Races -> Settings:
We have added an option to our Race Director Contact button we put on Race Websites. This option allows the race to redirect the button to your own race contact page. This is set up in the Miscellaneous Settings Page on the Race Director Dashboard: We have also added a partner level setting that will […]
We have added a new settings option (the little rotating gear next to the Menu in the upper left of your Race Director Dashboard) for race directors and partners who manage more than one race. The new option allows you to select which races you see in the “My Other Races” on the right of […]
In our new Confirmation Email Customization, we added the automatic generation of a calendar event to be attached to the email. This makes it simple for the participant to add your race to their calendar on their phone or computer with one click. Some races and partners do not like this. We give each race […]
We have added a new report that allows you to easily show year over year comparisons for a particular race (or city if you hold a race series). It also includes number of repeat participants in each year. Here is a sample: You can reach this report by clicking on your Partner Dashboard menu item, […]
There is now an option to automatically create pages for all the races in your Partner Website. This means as you add and change races, you do not need to do any changes to your website. They automatically appear in your Upcoming Races Calendar and when people click on the links in the calendar they […]
We have added a new report for Partners with Race Series that offer the same products across many races. It provides a consolidated view for all Add-On orders. This is a follow-on to our Store Reports, but designed especially for Add-Ons. The URun races series like BlackLight Run and Bubble Run is offering an option […]
You can now create your own Placeholders which will be dynamically updated on your Partner Website whenever you make a change on the setup. Placeholders can be defined on the Partner Website -> SetUp page: Then you can use the placeholder tag, such as %standardPrice% anywhere on your website in content areas. This means if you […]
You can now set up your Description as well as your Keywords for Partner Websites. These are both useful mechanisms for improving your Search Engine Optimization. The setup is in your Partner Dashboard under Website -> Setup. You can put a number of keywords, but the more keywords, the lower value Google will place on […]
We have added a new access level of partners who want to give some of their staff access to gift certificate information, but restrict any other financial access. It is in the Partner Dashboard under Account -> Partner Access.
Race Calendar Widgets are a quick and easy way for running stores, clubs and timers to put a list of races on their website. We have added a few options to allow for: Customize title to something other than “Race” – this is useful for Clubs who might have a training run calendar Highlight specific […]
We have added the ability to add Twitter and Facebook Feeds to partner Websites (these will be coming to Race and Club sites soon). These should be put into the Sidebar as they do not look good in full page mode: These are simply Integrated Components that can be selected when you build a new […]
We have added the ability to have a national map showing all locations of partner races as well as a grid view that is perfect for race series as part of our Partner Website capability. Coupled with this is a new Grid View that shows each location as a “card” with the ability to upload […]
We have added several race listing options. For example, there is new “Condensed View” which is clean and slick (and look awesome on mobile devices): We have also added other options to the Upcoming Race list: Use the race location as the race name Include other Race ID’s in your race list (beyond just the […]
We have added an integrated Component that you can now set in a Custom Section and add to any Partner page that allows visitors to sign up for your newsletter. You simply select the “Email Subscription Form” Component, and which email list you want them to go into (you can set a New List in […]
Update: Partner Websites are live on production as of 12/2/2015. We have some customers that were on old WordPress Sites, and those will be shut down at some point and we encourage moving to this new platform. We have extended our Free Race and Club Website capability to our Partners who manage multiple races. The […]
We have added a new report to show you the people who come back to your race. If you have multiple years of registration data in RunSignUp (remember you can upload previous years participant information even if this is your first year on RunSignUp), this will show you how many people have run your race […]
We have added the Participant Report that is part of our Race Dashboard to our Partner level Dashboard. This allows partners to generate do searches and reports that span across all of their races. Note this is only for Partner Owners and Secondary Owners to protect the data. People with limited access to the Partner […]
We have added a couple of Partner level Reports to show store orders across all races. The first report shows a summary of totals. We do our best to match items in different races that are spelled the same way with the same options (so it would not match one race where you call is […]
We have added some nice features for Partners with multiple races to give them better visibility across those races. Compare Races allows you to pick up to 10 races to compare on a single chart. This is on the Dashboard -> Compare page at the bottom, and you will be able to pick any mix […]
We continue to make improvements to the New Partner Dashboard. Improved Search. We refined the search capabilities of the search bar to improve the ability to find participants. We also expanded the date range to all dates, which can be refined in the search results screen shown in the next section. Improved Search Results. We […]
We released a number of nice additions to the Partner Dashboard today: Included Transaction totals in the Dashboard Live View: Comparison Charts for Year over Year comparison: Weekly Comparison on Dashboard:
We have released a new Partner Dashboard for our customers like Timers, Race Series, Running Stores Running Clubs and others with many races to manage. The first thing existing partners will notice is the fact we use the same layout menu system that the Race Dashboard uses. However we made this black and grey so […]
For our Partners with multiple races – either timers, event managers or companies with race series – we now offer simple year over year comparison charts. This is an expansion of the earlier Partner Reports we had released. Here is an example of a timer who started introducing RunSignUp to their races in 2013 and […]
We have added several new reports for Partners to see a quick overview across all of their races. The first is reached by clicking the “View Live Dashboard” button on the top left of the Partner Dashboard. It produces a quick view report of total registrations, transaction volume and revenue share: The Top Races & […]
