For events that allow participant location tracking, waypoint check-in can be enabled. This allows participants to check into each waypoint on a route and record their progress
Where this is enabled, Tangles provides event administrators with an overall progress board which shows which teams and individuals have arrived at each checkpoint and what their time was for the previous segment.
For ordered routes (where participants must reach each waypoint in a specified order) the progress board will also show the average segment times etc.
An enabled event can be configured to allow a number of different ways by which participants can check in to a given waypoint. When part of a team, the first individual checking in will check the whole of the team into the waypoint:
When participants check in to the first waypoint, they and their team’s start time is automatically set and their state is marked as ‘started’.
Similarly, when they check into the last waypoint, they and their team’s finish time is set and their status is marked as ‘finished’.
Once an individual is marked as finished, location tracking is stopped.
