August 31, 2020

sodisp is the most complete platform to host virtual events and challenges. It's free to use for most events. Start your virtual event or challenge today!

A massive update makes a range of new features available to create engaging virtual events and challenges on sodisp.com . These newly released features are:

  1. Team and relay results: Create both individual or team challenges, or combinations of both! With the team functionality any group can work together and compete with the other registered teams for first place!
  2. Badges: Create your own intermediate goals based on distance or elevation completed. Award badges to keep your participants motivated to make it till the (virtual) finish line! Easily customize the design or use custom images to make the badges unique to your challenge. You can optionally enable and customize email messages to be send whenever a badge is awarded and view overall statistics of each badge on your race result page.
  3. Collective progress: We’re into this together, so let’s work together in reaching our common goals! Easily set a collective target and everyone’s effort will count toward reaching this collective goal!
  4. Progress on virtual course map: Make your challenge more fun by mapping the progress on a real map. Simply upload your virtual course map and we’ll map the progress on the map. We show all participants (up to thousands) on the same map at the same time and have a powerful search option to find results easily!

These features are available right now and compliment our existing features such as different challenge types (best result, total distance or goal) and many more. Explore all sodisp features .
