Is there an option (or way) in the software to send an email automatically with the results of each race to racers?

I've seen it in other Race Software but couldn't figure out if that was an option ZRound.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

ZRound doesn't include the feature. There are two workarounds:
- You can upload the results to your website in order to make them available to your racers as workaround.
- Use the "File/export race..." option menu. It will create a .zip package with the database and all results in html format than you can send to your contacts.

I have added the feature request. Not sure how it will be implemented, it depends on the next developments related to results web publishing.

Thanks so much for the quick response and for adding it to the list. I want to get one of the tracks in my area switched over to ZRound but the current software they use (Flipside i think) has that feature and they have grown accustom to having it. In the mean time I will definitely try the workaround. If it's HTML imagine it's probably easy to post on a website making it much more accessible as well.

only useful if your club has a website, someone to admin it, etc. most i venture do not, like our club, and reply on the forum, youtube, and social media. i like that i an pull data from zround but it really isn't the most user friendly package around. you have to know what your doing or able to access clear instructions to navigate (zround has been great at providing this assistance). we use zround for our club as it has race management that we utilize heavily, although not always suited to small club formatting for events btu this improved greatly with added features over time. i too would like to be able to email results or add directly to social media sites. i have to tackle the small issue of no internet/wifi at our location first :o
