    2016 Improvements Summary

    There are many significant improvements in RD 2016 including:

    • New Partners.  Race Director has added Trident to the list of supported chip systems.  Integrations have also been built to online registration systems imAthlete, MyLaps, Race Entry, Race Roster, and Direct Athletics.
    • Participant Update.  Added a browse button to enable viewing and updating participant data in a grid.  Created the ability to search by bib number and name and to sort the grid by any column.
    • Cross Country Announcer.  Added a new version of the Announcer screen.  The left side of the screen shows the finish list and the right side shows team scores.  Team scores are updated with each finisher.
    • 2015 Age Graded Factors.  Updated Race Director to use the latest 2015 factors.  Made major changes in the tracking of age grade percentage.  The assignment of the distance-based factors is now done directly on the Division setup screen.  The age grade factor, percentage and net time are now calculated and saved for each participant each time the calculation process fires.  You can select any of these fields in Report Line Definitions or as exported data.  There is a new setting on the Overall Results report to include the age grade percent as a column on this report.
