Ever since we re-introduced the ability for Athletes to submit missing results to Athlinks, we’ve been monitoring how users actually use the feature so we can improve the process for everyone. Through this monitoring, we discovered that athletes were overlooking the “Results” section of the ELP and submitting unnecessary result requests.
With the old layout, previous-year events were listed as small links nested inside the general information about the event. These links were easy to overlook because of their small size and position:
We’ve now added a new “Past Results” section to the ELP to make previous-year results more noticeable:
This change will help ensure that athletes find what they’re looking for and reduce the number of bad results requests that Athlinks receives.
