Event Soft Caps
This is very useful for wave races, for example, obstacle course races. The basic idea is that you may have a cap of the number of people in a wave, but you want their friends to be able to join them in that same wave – so you need a “soft cap” to prevent new people from registering unless they are a part of a team. In a wave race example, you would set the cap for a wave to 300 and the soft cap for a team to say 5. After 300 people registered, no new people could join on their own or create a new team. However, a person could join an existing team as long as that team was under say 5 people. This means the wave will likely have over 300 people.
Users would see an event was full:
If they go to the Team page, they can still join from that page:
The cap for an event, or wave, is set up in the Race -> Registration settings:
The guaranteed team slots is set up under Participants -> Groups/Teams -> Settings:
