Setup Results Notifications (Email and Text/SMS)

Modified on 13 February

These settings are used when your event is planning on uploading results to RunSignUp, and like to enable real-time results updates to participants and anyone who would like to track them via Email and or Text/SMS. 

Enable Results Notifications

The first checkbox enables the ability for participants to opt-in to real-time results. When enabled, two things will change.

  1. Registrants will see a step added to the registration process in which they can register for results notifications:

  1. The "Find a Participants" page will include an additional "Results Notifications" link next to each name so that anyone can register for notifications for any current participant.

If a participant decides to opt-in to real-time results during their registration, they can chose to sign up for text notification, email notifications, or both. They are able to register for multiple types of notifications.

Enable Split Result Notifications

Note - if you are planning on uploading results with split information, and would additionally like to send out notifications for splits as well as finish results, you can enable them by going to Go Race Day > Results > Customize Results Notifications. The setting is found below the placeholder table.

Disable Text/SMS Notification Registration

The next setting disables text message result notification registration. This means that once this setting is enabled, participants will no longer be able to register for SMS results notifications. If any participants had already registered for SMS notifications previously, they will still receive them.

Disable Notification Sending

The next setting allows you to temporarily disable results notifications and is useful for testing purposes, or if you need to post results later than anticipated and do not want to send out notifications.
