GPRM v17, UX suggestion

Post by Vitamin K » Fri Mar 16, 2018 12:56 pm

This is minor, since I think most people probably just import from spreadsheets, but...

In the registration screen, when you're entering a racer, it would be nice if, in addition to just a "Save" button, there was a "Save and Add Another" or maybe just an "Add Another" checkbox to tick, so that it would pop open the racer entry for the next racer after saving the current.

I dig how it shows the scoring preferences on the main screen now, btw!

Already implemented such a feature in V18, due out in September. When you click on Save, you will be asked if you want to add another racer/award/track record/top time, as the case may be, and if you click on Yes, the form will clear and you can enter the next racer/award/track record/top time. Rinse and repeat.

Glad to hear it. I find the racer data totals on the Registration tab to be the most helpful. Not sure why I hadn't thought about adding that many versions back. Redesigning the UI, with V16, made me try to view things from a fresh new perspective.
