License information for TFRRS / NCAA: We have added the ability to add TFRRS / NCAA license/ID numbers.
Team competitions for road running and cross country: We have added two team competitions for road running and cross country. One is based on points, and the other is based on aggregated time.
Out-Of-Competition athletes: You can mark an athlete as OOC (Out-Of-Competition), which means that the athlete will have a result, but will not be placed or counted towards team competitions.
Advancement: You will be able to add qR (advanced to next round by Referee), qJ (advanced to next round by Judge), and qD (advanced to next round by Draw).
Personal BIB numbers: The organiser can choose to let registrants add their personal BIB numbers via registration.
Meeting statistics: You will find statistics about your meeting on the Details page.

Registration: You will find clubs next to the athlete names in the registration approval overview, and email confirmations are added for registrations without payment.
Imperial: We have added a banner to the public meeting page if the viewing selection is "Metric" and the meeting is set to use Imperial (quarter inch) as measurement units since inaccurate results might be shown in converted metric units.
Athlete licence: The ability to add licence numbers for New Zealand athletes has been added.
Payments: We have added support for the currencies of Bulgaria (Bulgarian lev, BGN) and Romania (Romanian leu, RON). Transactions in BGN and RON are settled in EUR, which leads to a currency exchange loss.

Records: Previously, an existing record was required to get a new PB/SP. This has been changed so that a PB/SB will be marked when no previous record exists. In addition, initial records added to the start list will be automatically transferred to the athlete's profile and kept as a "Start list" source.
Lane assignment models: World Athletics recently changed the rules for lane assignments for straight runs (60m, 60H, 100m, 100H, 110H), 200m and 400m. We have added these new lane assignment models.
Language: The platform can now be accessed in Spanish.
Testing: We have added a new Testing meeting type for new users who want to test the platform. Read more here.

License information for Greece: We have added the ability to add Greek Federation license numbers. These numbers will be shown on start lists, results and check-in for the organizer if the competition is located in Greece or Cyprus.

Adding password: the option to add a password and make the meet/meeting private is no longer available with Roster web admin version 2023.05.2 going forward.

If you have added a password to your meet/meeting before version 2023.05.2, all events will be hidden, and the meeting will be excluded from the search results.
