Sept 13, 2019 – Where’ My Update? 🤷‍♀️ 🤷‍♂️

Trace Teams App

Sometimes your case has new features or fixes added to it. When this happens we automatically update your case when it’s connected to the internet! Usually the case updates during an upload (don’t worry your upload is safe 👍) We thought it would be good to let you know this was happening. Now your Trace Teams app will let you know!

Connecting case to Wifi

We made significant improvements to connecting your case to wifi.

Rosters

We made fixes to Rosters to improve the experience in inputting players on a team.

Sept 6, 2019 – Squashing Bugs 🐛

Fixes & Improvements

Pan & Zoom AI 1.4
We got some great feedback from customers last week and we incorporated it into this update. Lets us know what you think.

Email and Login Links
The internet is getting safer – but with it some new ways that browsers handle links. We’ve adapted and all new links should work now.

Uploading
Lots of improvements under the hood that should mean faster and more reliable uploads.


Aug 30, 2019 – We’ve been laboriously laboring in the laboratory over tutorials, playlists, panning, and more. 👷

Features

Ready to start your game? The new in-app Tracing tutorial walks you through every step of the process.

Fixes & Improvements

Pan & Zoom AI 1.3
We’re getting better every day. With this version, we’re trying to keep the ball visible more as it transitions from one side of the field to the other. Plays near the goals should be zoomed in more while plays at midfield will have a more tactical view.

Pan & Zoom AI 1.3

Please, keep using that “feedback” button to let us know when clips look good or bad.

Also:

  • Fixed some bug related to coach/manager invitations
  • Added more robust messaging for unsupported browsers
  • A few other enhancements under the hood

Aug 6, 2019 – Smarter (and longer) player clips 💨

Features

Small update on the inside, hopefully, a big update on the outside! You’ll often be watching a touch chain or a player moment, and you feel it ends too soon. Not any more! TRACE-BOT’s clip generating engine has gotten an upgrade, and if anything, clips should be too long, not too short. Please drop us a line at q@traceup.com and let us know if you still see one ending too early!

Bug Fixes

Fixed a bug that was causing login issues for a small number of users on Android.


Aug 2, 2019 – Know what stage your upload is in 🧐

Features

If you’re the one Tracing a game, you probably have questions: are all the video files on the camera? did the Tracers record? How much longer will my upload take? Did everything upload correctly? How much longer will processing take?

  • What’s on the Tracers, what’s on the cameras – When you turn on the transfer button on your case, the Case Tab in your Trace Teams app will now give you information like how many hours of video are on each camera, how much data is on the Tracers, etc. This should give you a more complete picture of how the recording aspect of your game went.
  • Game Processing Information – Under the videos tab, once all of your data and video has been uploaded, you’ll also get information on where your game is in processing so that you’ll know how long you’ll need to wait.

Bug Fixes

We had a number of broad-based improvements to the app in this release

  • Added in the option to add team score, jersey colors, and Case ID at the end of the game
  • Fixed an issue with roster updating


Aug 1, 2019 – Tracers come with auto shut off 💤

Features

We’ve seen issues with Tracers accidentally being left on after games and running out of battery or recording data longer than expected. We want to make sure that this doesn’t happen to your Tracers.

Auto Shut Off – When a game has ended, if you forget to turn off your Tracers we have you covered! After 3 hours, your Tracers will auto shut off. We still advise turning them off with your Case, but just in CASE, they will shut off!

Bug Fixes


July 23, 2019 – Trace an event with more than 3 games 💼

Features

We’ve heard from many of you that you need Trace to work for more than three games on tournament weekend. So we made it work for 5 games! You’re very welcome.

  • Storage on the case – After you’ve played your two games on Saturday, come back to your hotel room and plug your cameras into your Trace case. Turn on the Transfer button. Your Trace Case will now move all of the data on your Tracers and camera onto the case, making room for a fresh set of 3 games the next day. This should allow you to complete up to 5 games in a weekend.
  • Upload the next time the case is on WiFi – When you come back home, and plug your case in, turn on the Transfer button. Now that you have WiFi, all the games stored on the case, and all the games currently on the Tracers + camera should upload together.

Bug Fixes

We had a number of broad-based improvements to the app in this release

  • Added in the option to add team score, jersey colors, and Case ID at the end of the game
  • Fixed an issue with roster updating


July 11, 2019 – Better panning on uneven fields 🔭

Features

Some of the fields you play on have drainage ditches or are uneven. In these cases, our film hasn’t been very good quality because the cameras are not set up on a part of the field that is even with the pitch. It should be much better now.

After – a more reasonable view!
Before – stuck pointed at the ground

Bug Fixes

We had a number of broad-based improvements to the app in this release. Here are a few:

  • Fixed an issue with permission for division managers to create teams and rosters.
  • Fixed an issue with login that was directing users to a blank page.


June 21, 2019 – Flexible panning 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️

Features

Before this update, TraceCam could only focus on 10 points of the field, and transition between those points with a set speed. Not anymore! TraceCam can focus on any point on the field, and transition between those points with an array of speeds! Vrooom!

After – moving all around the field
Before – stuck in one view!

Bug Fixes

We had a number of broad-based improvements to the app in this release but here are a few:

  • You can now see how many games you’ve used in your subscription
  • In panning, there could be moments where the camera panned across the field for no reason. Not any more!

June 15, 2019 – Easy to see REC on cameras 🎥

Features

Wondering whether or not your cameras are recording can be really stressful. And seeing the text in the sun can be closer to impossible.
To make the screen easier to see, the letters REC will now be permanently affixed on a black background. If you see REC, you’re good to go and can raise up your tripod.

New screen is visible even during maximum glare

Bug Fixes
