With the increasing role technology plays in our lives, it’s no surprise that it has made its way into the world of sports tracking too. Digital tools have become indispensable for coaches, PE teachers, and event organizers looking for streamlined ways to monitor and track results from sports events.
One of the most innovative and efficient tools to emerge recently is the ability to track results through RSS feeds. Our platform, Sports Tracker, now allows users to share live results via an RSS feed. This provides a simple and effective way for those involved in school sports to follow real-time results from their events.
What are RSS Feeds and How Do They Benefit Your Meet?
RSS, or ‘Really Simple Syndication,’ is a web feed that allows users to access updates to online content in a standardized, computer-readable format. When applied to sports tracking, an RSS feed provides an easy way to stay up-to-date with the latest sports event results.
The benefits of using RSS feeds for sports tracking include:
- Real-time Updates: The RSS feed updates automatically, meaning you can get real-time results as soon as they’re entered into Sports Tracker.
- Efficiency: Instead of having to constantly check the Sports Tracker platform for updates, you can get all the latest results delivered straight to your chosen RSS reader app.
- Ease of Use: Once you’ve set up the RSS feed, it’s incredibly easy to follow. Plus, with our new feature, setting up an RSS feed for your sports events is a breeze.
How to Use an RSS Reader App with Sports Tracker
While we have detailed instructions on how to share live results via RSS on our help page, here’s a brief overview:
- Identify Your RSS Reader App: There are numerous RSS reader apps available for both iOS and Android.
- Locate the Feed URL: Each meet in Sports Tracker has a unique RSS feed URL. You’ll need to copy this URL to add it to your RSS reader app.
- Add the Feed to Your RSS Reader App: With your chosen app open, there will be an option to ‘Add Feed’ or something similar. Here you’ll paste the RSS feed URL from Sports Tracker.
That’s it! Now, you’ll start receiving live results straight to your mobile device. Not only does this make tracking sports events easier, but it also means you can be more engaged in the action happening on the field, rather than constantly checking for updates.
Remember, whether you’re a coach, a PE teacher, or an event organiser, our goal is to make your role easier and more efficient. With features like the new RSS feed for live results, Sports Tracker continues to innovate in the field of sports event management.
