And now the end is near…

Sad reality is the season is winding down in the northern hemisphere (stop gloating you California and Caribbean users). That doesn’t mean RailMeets can’t be useful. For my boat I just put in a bunch of events for putting the boat away and a Crew BBQ. Here is how you do that. From your dashboard find the boat that you want to set up an event for and click on Events for that boat. Next click on Add Event. From there just fill out the form.

Top Tip – Visibility to All makes it public event, great for fleet parties and club work parties. Clicking on Crew will make it visible only to your crew. Top Tip #2 – Use Meeting on Dock for when you want the crew to show up at your house, Leaving Dock time for when you are lighting the BBQ grill and Race Time for when dinner is served. Or Meet on dock for when you want the work party to arrive Leaving Dock for when you leave the harbor after taking the mast down and Race time for when you get to the boat yard and then go for chili at Lindy’s Screen Shot 2018-09-25 at 10.41.07 AM.png

Adding your Clubs Schedule

Are you new to RailMeets? Is your clubs racing schedule missing from RailMeets? We can add your clubs events. It’s easiest if they are in our format which you can download here https://static.railmeets.com/assets/sampledata/calendar_2018_template_v1.xlsx But any format will work just make sure that your handwriting is legible. We can usually have them up in 24hrs. Please send them via email to Marco at railmeets.com.

Two new features added

We added two new features this week,  both were asked for in the last user group.  First feature is the ability to see past events.  To access it you will see a check box “Show past events”.  Checking that box will show all of your past dates.  So if you are a skipper and want to see who did the NOODs with you last year, its easy.  Who crewed last weekend? Easy check the box.  Unchecking the box will return you to the default view of just the future events.

The other new feature is as a default, crew that signs up for more races will be placed on the left side of the crew list.  Ones that rarely or only occasionally signup will be placed to the right.   This works in conjunction with the “show past events” box.  If you have that checked it will count last year when figuring out who to place where within the view.  If two crew members have crewed the same of times they will be placed in alphabetical order.  image(1) copy.png
