Clear Assigned Bib and Chip Numbers

Assign Through Quick Participant Report

  • Uses online check in report

Setup Group/Team Bib Assignment

  • Limited. Only able to auto assign
  • Is a separate column from Individual Bib #
  • If you need to assign relay team bibs that are the same for multiple participants you can import them manually and most timing software will use the individual bib # if no Group Bib exists.

Bib Validation

  • Lets you define two ranges for each Event. This will work with the Check-In report to limit what bibs you can assign. Does not work if you are working offline with the Check-In App.
  • We have just added the ability to prevent reassigning bibs for deleted or refunded registrations. Usually these will be recycled.

Build Bib Labels

  • Freeform text entry in box to the left. Question marks insert database fields.
  • Be sure to disable auto-fit from printer settings.
RaceDay Results App


  • Auto-poll for results -  Enabled automatically on race day. For testing you will need to enable it manually.
  • Searches through all Events
  • Will zoom to an individual result if there is an exact match on bib
  • Auto Clear Search is very handy for bib lookup kiosks.
  • Ability to lock settings menu.
