We’re excited to announce a powerful enhancement to UltraSignup’s capabilities. Now, you can load both a time and a distance column when uploading timed results, ensuring accurate placements and a smoother experience for both you and the participants.
Here’s What Changed: #
- Results Loader: Load results for fixed time events with both a “distance” (required) and an optional “time” column. The column header should be distance_time (We will be adding this detail to the instructions in the UI)
- Event Results Page Display: On the results page for fixed time events, an additional “time” column is displayed alongside the “distance” column.
- The display change applies only to fixed time events; other event types remain unchanged.
- Sort order based on “distance” first, then “time.”
- Handling placement: We determine placement by “distance” first, then check for “time.”
- Handling ties: We determine ties by matching “distance” first, then we match “time.”
- Ties displayed in a sequence of “1, 2, 2, 4” in both overall and division placement columns.
- Rankings, both overall and age rank, are still calculated based on “distance.”
Important Notes: #
- If details are not loaded in a time column for a fixed time event, the time column will display all 0’s.
- Fixed distance does not display both time and distance columns.
- Time column is not required but is “all or nothing” – all cells must have a value. If you upload a time column, all cells require a value, otherwise, you will get an error message.
- The live results editor does not yet support changes to both time and distance; You must delete, edit, and re-upload the file for now.
