Social Media Integration for Scoring

As you may know, we have included social media integration for your events and your event site for several years.  In addition, this year, we have added social media to the results for your event.  

Now as you score each race, you can post the news that the results have been posted to the Regatta Network Facebook and Twitter feeds, or to your club's Facebook or Twitter account.

(Sample Facebook Post)

To post to your club or event's Facebook or Twitter account, simply add the credentials for your account, and a notification of the results will be posted with a link back to the full results.

Duplicate Events and a new Event Delete Tool

Several users have reported accidentally creating duplicate events.  This is generally created by incorrectly using the browser's back button during the initial step of Create a New Event. 

If you create an event, and then hit the back button, it will re-start the event creation process. Although most browser give a warning that the document has expired and ask you to confirm that you want to repeat the action that was preformed earlier.

As a simple fix, you can now delete a duplicate event from the event console.  Simply click on the trash icon at the top of the page

And follow the instructions to confirm the event delete action. 

This will support a soft delete of the event, so if you accidentally delete the wrong event, we should be able to recover it for you.  Note that this option is only available with club level "super-user" admin account credentials.
