Mar 25, 201410-key entry
We added 10-key data entry support. Now there's REALLY no excuse for Excel users not to switch :)
Mar 10, 2014Barcode Scanner and Label Video
I uploaded a quick demo of how you can use UberScoreMaster with a barcode scanner and barcode labels.
Mar 2, 2014Updates
Thanks to your suggestions we have been busy updating the software. Here are a few of the most recent changes.
We just added the IDPA website score upload file format. Enter your scores with UberScoreMaster quickly and then
upload them to the IDPA site easily. Go to Publish and Step 6 to download the scores.
We made some changes to the Real-Time entry to better handle multiple strings.
The Match Scores page now shows more clearly which scores have not been completed yet. The After-Match and Real-Time entry methods also
now have better indications of which stages or shooters have not been entered yet.
No Internet at your range? No Problem! One user reports that we work great with a mobile wireless hotspot device you can purchase at stores like Walmart.
Feb 20, 2014IDPA Pre-Match and At-Match Signup
Today we launched www.IDPAMatchSignup.com
! It's just the first step in our complete
match signup features we're working on. When you create your future match on UberScoreMaster.com it automatically publishes your clubs local match on
IDPAMatchSignup.com. It allows shooters to signup ahead of time and save you typing their info in later when you do the scores. It also helps you avoid
frustration figuring out everyone's messy handwriting. We're using it at the match signup table with an iPad air. It works great with tablets!
Feb 19, 2014Match Management and Barcode Support
Due to a request we added barcode support. On the new Match Management page you will find a "Labels" button next to each shooter where you can print barcodes for that shooter. When you are on
the Match Scores or Match Management page then you can just scan your label and the score entry or edit page for that shooter will pop up.
They are now selling Bluetooth barcode scanners on eBay for less than $50 that work with iPads and any other Bluetooth enabled mobile devices.
Feb 13, 2014New Website Format and Match Management
We hope you like our new look! Now that we have the score entry licked we're tidying things up a bit on the external site.
A special thanks to Gordon Carrell (my instructor) and Yamil R. Sued for allowing me to use their pictures on the site. If your IDPA club wants
to sponsor a pro to come and give lessons then please consider Gordon. GLC Academy
a real industry pro photographer. Please visit his site and consider using his services when in need of some great photography. HotGunShots.com
Thank you again for your overwhelming support! We've had much urging to add a Match Management component to our program. Shooters that have
used other software have given us a list of things they would like to see done and we're on the case. Stay tuned!
Feb 3, 2014Tablets for Score Entry?
to read "Why Smart Phones are Better than Tablets for Score Entry"
Jan 26, 2014Sanctioned Match Updates
Now that we have the general scoring and mobile entry and mobile preliminary reports working well we added abilities to add subcategories (like Lady, Industry, etc.) to
the shooter profiles. This will make it easy for shooters to monitor their progress during the match in their subcategories and a quick way for
Match Directors to determine the "High" scores for each subcategory.
We also had some great suggestions on some other calculations some shooters would like that we will be incorporating in a few weeks that make
the shooting scores more like golf scores. Stay tuned! Keep those suggestions coming!
Jan 22, 2014Real-Time Entry Module Update!
We had a fantastic time shooting on Saturday and testing the real-time score entry. Some of the comments encouraged us to make some additional changes to
the interface to make it easier to read and update even quicker. Check out this video
for the latest.
We had an iPad at the range signup table. Everyone entered their information into UberScoreMaster and then the new "Pick List/Squad Assignment" feature made it easy to set everyone up into squads and thereby making the score entry a snap.
Everyone was emailed and texted right after the results where verified. We would like to thank those of you that have continued to provide
feedback on our new software. We hope it saves you time and improves the accuracy of the scoring process.
Jan 14, 2014Real-Time Entry Module Complete!
Our Real-Time Mobile Score Entry is complete and we are going into beta testing this weekend! Click Here to view a video
Jan 6, 2014Product Launch!
We had a great product launch yesterday at Collin County IDPA near Dallas, Texas. Club president Cody Ray, is supportive of our efforts.
Club treasurer Dr. Allen Honeyman also gave us kudos and contributed his brain power on the score charting as well as product testing. A special thanks goes
out to Webmaster James Morgan for his help in making sure the official results were in the exact format needed. The program
makes sure the MD doesn't forget to email the webmaster first and the program makes sure the results are exactly the way they need to be. This cuts
down on time spent exchanging emails and republishing results.
All club members were able to download the results and those that wanted text alerts of their results received them. Email alerts also went out
without a hitch. One Mac user had trouble opening the Excel spreadsheet but after a slight tweak was able to get it downloaded OK.
The most gratifying part of the data entry process was the quality control score validation. It quickly caught ALL the data entry errors!
Additional charting suggestions came in from Expert shooter Chris Jones, MBA. We have some exciting new charts on the horizon now to help you
analyze your scores. Stay tuned!
Please help us continue to enhance this great tool for our sport by contributing suggestions!
