Release note (v. 2021.12.1) - December 3, 2021


NEW FEATURES

  1. Verified and Non-verified records: We have added the ability for a registrant/participant to add their PB and SB (read more here). Records that can be verified by a trusted source (e.g., Tilastopaja) will be marked as such. Non-verified records entered by registrants/participants will be marked with a yellow mark so that the organizer has an easy overview of which records are verified and which are not. As an organizer, you can clear all records on the start list and/or add from the records job (where you can select to include only verified records, or both verified and non-verified records). Read more here.



Note: If records are not added manually, but an existing Tilastopaja profile exists, records will be updated automatically.


IMPROVEMENTS

  1. License check: If a registrant has an invalid license, he/she will remain pending until the organizer makes a decision to either confirm the rejection or approve despite missing a valid license.

Release note (v. 2021.11.2) - November 30, 2021


NEW FEATURES


RegistrationToday, we have launched our highly anticipated registration platform. As an organizer, you will need to connect your Roster account with a Stripe account to receive payments from your participants. Read more here. Once connected, you can set up your meeting with all of the necessary registration details (e.g., qualification standard, price per event, etc.) and open it for participants to register. If an event is free of charge, you should give the event a price of 0. As an organizer, you will have a full dashboard of all participants and can control who can participate and who should be refunded their registration fee if a participant cannot compete for some reason. The participant (or registrant, in the case of a parent or coach signing up on behalf of others) can access registration via meets.rosterathletics.com. Read more here.


This is the first version of the registration platform, and many more features will follow. It is important to mention that you will not be able to sign up for relay teams at this time (this will be added in the next version). Additional upcoming features include a club payment module (where a club can pay for all of its athletes), check-in functionality and discounts for subsequent events, among others.


You can reach out to support@rosterathletics.com if your organization is interested in getting access to the registration portal. Please note that currently, not all countries and currencies are supported.
