March Brackets Enhancements

  • It is now easier than ever to add a sponsor logo to your March Brackets contest! You can now easily upload a sponsor image in the contest designer without having to design a custom header. Sponsor logos will be displayed below the contest header image on desktop and mobile, as well as displaying on the user’s printed bracket.
  • Users can now print their brackets, making it easier than ever for users to share their bracket (and your bracket contest in person)! The printed bracket includes the user’s username, the contest header, the sponsorship logo, and the URL for the contest.
  • We have made several enhancements to our mobile bracket experience that make it the slickest mobile bracket experience for your players! Mobile users will automatically be forwarded to the current round in progress (no more hunting for the current round!); and with new sticky round headers, users will never have to worry about losing their place in the bracket.
  • Added round dates to the bracket page so that users can quickly see when rounds begin and end.

March Brackets Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a rare issue that was causing the terms and conditions page to interrupt the brackets user flow.
  • Fixed an issue that was causing the desktop brackets view to display the mobile tutorial in some instances.
  • Resolved an issue that was preventing the sign in link from displaying in loyalty sites.
  • Fixed minor styling issues.

System Wide Changes for All Contesting Types

  • Implemented new, more appealing templates for all transactional emails.
  • Added a loading indicator for the new dashboard search to let users know that a search is currently in progress.
  • Fixed a bug that was preventing users from deleting images within the designer.
  • Changed verbiage of the “Reset Password” flow to be more user friendly.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug that was allowing users to modify and publish cancelled contests.
  • Fixed an issue that was sometimes causing dropdown menus in the new dashboard to not disappear after a user click away from them.
