What's New?

Single event discounts and group discounts

07 June 2023

We have resolved an issue related to the application and handling of credits for runners who had both a single event participant discount and a group participant discount. Previously, there were problems with applying credits correctly in such cases.

With this update, the system will now prioritize the event-specific credit first and apply it accordingly. Any remaining or residual credit will remain an event-specific credit. This enhancement allows runners to utilize their credits effectively. 

Additionally, group credits will only be applied when the event-specific credit does not cover the full cost of registration. Any residual group credit can still be applied to future registrations. 

Sorting of Participant List for Ticket Sales Events

07 June 2023

We have resolved a bug related to the sorting of the participant list for events with the ticket sales event type. Previously, users experienced an issue with the sort order of the participant list, it is now sorted based on registration date.

Display issue in registration history

07 June 2023

Add-On Purchase Issue: Previously, when purchasing an add-on from the event store, it resulted in the appearance of an add-on purchase for each distance associated with the add-on.

Manage Team: All add-ons and race registrations appeared as relay registrations displaying a link “manage team”.

Now, when purchasing an add-on from the event store, it will accurately reflect the intended purpose as a standalone purchase and not create the appearance of false purchases. The “manage team” link now only appears when associated with a relay registration.

Timing App Publishing Errors
