New Search Update

There is now a dropdown “Search Type” with options of “normal” (set as default) and “bib mode”. This replaces the previous “Search Type” of automatically entering into bib mode if the custom search instructions contained “number”. We’ve set all current values to match the prior functionality so if your custom instructions contained “number” then we have automatically set the collection “Search Type” to bib mode. 

Now when a collection is in bib mode, we have set the default search instructions to an appropriate value – “Search by race number or enter 0 for all untagged images” so that you, the photographer, don’t need to set your own custom instructions.

Fail quickly

‘Fail quickly’ is a commonly used phrase originating from the worlds of Uber and Facebook. This may result in a big sigh or the eyes glazing over. Fair enough, but it’s a vitally important point and no doubt businesses have been doing it far longer than those companies named above. Fast moving retail goods especially.

if you are going to try a new product or service then commit to it and if it doesn’t work, find that out quickly so it does not cost you any more than it needs to.
