Archers Diary Update

Archers Diary Update

Important information regarding Archers Diary & iScored

Following on from last weeks Archers Diary update (Click Here):

It has come to our attention that the new version of iScored.today is not fully compatible with older iPhone and iPad devices that are using the latest version of iOS (13.x) – the minimum iOS version required to run the new iScored.today application is iOS 11.

If this is the case on your device it will be represented on the main page where the “cogs” icon will turn red:

If this is the case, then the application will continue to work, but only while connected to the Internet. If the Internet connection drops, it is possible that the application will fail to load until reconnected – preventing the archer from scoring. Entered scores will not be lost, and can be recovered after reconnecting to the Internet.

To accommodate those archers with older devices and require the ability to score offline, we are making the older V2 version available.

This older version will not contain any of the newer features, and at some point will become unsupported by the devices, this is outside of our control, and is the reason we have had to move to new technology.

The old version is available here: https://iscored.today/v2

This can be installed to the Home Screen, following the same directions as for the new version.

Important information regarding Archers Diary & iScored

Major update for iScored.today:

We would like to announce a major update to the iScored.today application.

While the application will continue to have a similar look and feel to the application you are using today, this new release is a complete rebuild from the ground up. This was required to update the underlying platform to the latest in current web technologies.

Included in this new release are a few new features:

  • Login with QR code: This will mostly be utilised at major events but is available to all clubs who wish to use it. This allows the event coordinator to print out a sheet with basic Event information, and a QR code. This QR code can now be scanned using the iScored.today application; which will auto-populate the Login page with the correct Event selection and passcode.
  • Data pausing: While the application uses very little data over the course of scoring for the Event (around 1MB), it is now possible to click on the Globe symbol to pause the uploading of scores until the end of the Event. If this feature is used, live monitoring of the scores via Archers Diary is not possible, as the scores are not being uploaded to the system.
  • Summary page after scoring has completed: Once all scores have been entered for a round, a new Summary page is presented after this to provide archers an overview of their scores.

This new page includes the following information:

  • Score
  • Previous best for Round – the best score you have previously shot for this round
  • Rating – plus an indication if this has improved your handicap
  • Checks the Records database at National, State and Club levels.
  • System will indicate if the score shot is a potential record. The appropriate processes still need to be followed to submit the score for consideration.
  • Moving to the HTTPS (secure/encrypted) communication protocol. While the current version has supported https, with this latest release it is essential that the application runs over the https protocol.

 

Important Action required by ALL iScored users

(Please note – This needs to be done on or after the 25/08/2020)

Because of the nature of the underlying changes to both the platform and the communication protocols, it will be necessary for all users to uninstall and reinstall the application to their devices.

Failure to do so may cause unpredictable results during the use of the application. In particular, loss of connection to the network may result in an inability to continue to score unless the appropriate steps are taken.

Please click here for a reminder of the steps needed to install the application.

Along with new update, it is a requirement that all archers remove the existing application from their phone and re-install the new version. Failure to do so may result in unexpected failures. This must be done either on or after the 25/8/2020

 

Action required:

  • Uninstall the current version of iScored today from all devices, even if the update appears to have installed automatically
  • Reinstall the application from the secure link at: https://iscored.today

For iOS devices, you must use the Safari browser and add the link to the Home Screen

For Android devices, you must use the Chrome browser and add the link to the Home Screen

 

Updates for Manage.iscored.today

At the same time as we release the update to iScored.today, we have a new version of Manage.iscored.today.

The new version includes two new features:

  • QR Codes: the ability to generate and print a QR code to simplify the login process at events. This is mainly targeted at larger events, but can be used by Clubs, if desired.
  • Record Management: National and State Recorders will be able to manage the Archers Diary records using the Manage.iscored.today application.

Clubs will be granted access to this feature in a future update.

  • Associate Membership: This feature has been available for a while, but is being officially released with this version. This allows clubs to add members who are affiliated with AA with other clubs to be added to the member list of their club as an associate.

The associates have all the same rights as regular members (earn awards, hold records at the club), but the club recorder will not be able to alter the primary membership record.

Refer to the online help for additional information about these features.

Archery Australia Newsletter – BacktoArchery National Tournament

Archery Australia Newsletter – BacktoArchery National Tournament

Given the cancellation of all National Events for the remainder of 2020 Archery Australia (AA) is set to launch a National Competition on-line, that will allow archers to re-engage with competitive archery at their local club without the need to travel.

The Tournament is open to all archers no matter what their ability, showing placings via both raw score and by scores calculated using an individual’s AA handicap.

The Event:

The tournament will be conducted across six (6) weekends commencing in September and finishing in December 2020. The tournament will be open to all Archery Australia Members.

The rounds to be shot will be WA60/900, Short Canberra and Junior Canberra.

The above rounds have been selected as they prove to be the most popular within our archery community. Of the six event dates, an archer’s best two (2) scores will be used to calculate their position on the competition table. This will mean an archer can shoot all, or just two events being held to be considered for any awards, this will allow all competitors an opportunity to participate and hopefully ensure weather or future restrictions do not have an impact on the final standings.

The shortest distance to be shot will be the Short Canberra. Cubs wishing to participate in the National Competition will need to shoot this distance. Clubs are able to choose anywhere between two and six dates from the following weekends:

September

Week 1    Saturday 19th or Sunday 20th

October

Week 2    Saturday 10th or Sunday 11th

Week 3    Saturday 24th or Sunday 25th

November

Week 4    Saturday 7th or Sunday 8th

Week 5    Saturday 21st or Sunday 22nd

December

Week 6    Saturday 12th or Sunday 13th

There will be no fee Archery Australia fee to enter and medals will be awarded to the top three archers in each division. Further details, including registration details will be sent out directly to clubs on Tuesday 1st September 2020.
