Race certificate creation

In the DistantRace platform, it is possible to automatically generate virtual certificates for finishers.

It’s quite simple to do. Here is a short instruction:

1. Open the race certificate view

In this view, you will be able to see all distances by blocks and download the PPTX file for the certificate design for each one.

2. Create the certificate design

The certificate design must be created in PPTX format (Microsoft PowerPoint). Specific text fields in the design will be automatically replaced.

Publishing a Certificate

If “Is Published?” is checked, a certificate will be automatically generated for the participant after results are added.

Adding a New PPTX File

Click the “Browse…” button, select the certificate, and click “Save.” After clicking “Save,” a visual sample is automatically created - this can take up to a minute. If a specific font is used that displays incorrectly, please send the font to for it to be added to the system.
