New Features - September 2015

New Features - September 2015

As always, we keep improving the website and mobile applications.  Here are our latest improvements.

Silverlight be gone


We have removed all dependencies on Silverlight.  This means that we have new pages for Continuous Play, Stats Model Editor and Best of Patterns.  These pages will be improved, but since Google Chrome ends support for Silverlight this month, we needed to get the pages out.

Stats Model Editor

Stats Model Editor has been splitted in 2 pages : 
  • Stats Model Editor - this page is used to set the fields used for rankings and the ones to display on the stats pages.
  • Stats / Standing Grouping - this page is used to create your stats template, for teams and singles, and assign which divisions and round-robins are used by the Stats Model

Mobile Application improvements

There is a new Search by League Operator (Charter), which allows you to show all teams or players for a league operator or charter holder.

You can also now click on a player or team that you follow in the Manage Notifications and it will bring you to the search page of that player or team.

Send Push Notification messages to mobile app users

You can now send a message to everyone using the app that accessed the event.  Or you can send a message to the devices that follows a specific team or player, in case you need to reach them.

You can also see how many people are using the mobile app for your event.  

Advanced Search in the event home page or Kiosks

We have improved the speed of the Advanced Search, and you can also now search by League operator or Charter holder number or id.

Board Assignment page

You can now select which fields you want to display, and you can also split a bracket in many columns with From/To different letters.

Charts

You can now move the charts with the keyboard arrows, and zoom in and out with the + and - keys.

Updated user guides

We have updated and improved our user guides for leagues and tournaments and will keep on improving them in the coming weeks.  You can download them from here : League guide and Tournament guide


Until next time!
