New Event Site and Notice Board Options

Today we are rolling out two new event options.  Several clubs have a dedicated website or their club website for their events rather than use the automatic event site generated when you create an event in Regatta Network.  You can now add the URL for an event site (other than the Regatta Network site) during event creation or through the Edit Event Information console.  Simply enter the URL for the event site in the field labeled  "Event Site Link," and be sure the include the entire web address including the http://www. for your site.  (Tip:  If you copy the URL from a browser address bar, most browsers will automatically add these to your link.)

Also, we're now providing the option to select either the expanded online notice board or the standard notice board during event set up from the first tab of event creation or the Edit Event Information console.  The expanded notice board gives you a separate section for Documents, Notices, Hearing Schedule, Hearing Decisions, Protest Time Limits, and an email Scoring Inquiry form and an optional section for On-the-Water Penalties.

Any document uploaded to your event is automatically added to the documents page. Notices, Hearing Schedule and Decisions, and Protest Time limits are managed through the existing notice board console.  And the scoring inquiry generates an email inquiry to the email addresses listed in the scorer and PRO fields of the Edit Event Information console.
