HSS  January 26, 2019   Version: 3.2019.0125
Changes and Notes
  1. Horse Editor - The owners listed in the owner drop down list the Owner's USEF number in square brackets after the address.

  2. Reporting and networking problems with IP address / DB Logon failure:
    HSS will attempt to connect to the server's data folder for reporting based on the UNC path using the IP or Server name entered in the "Change Server" screen rather than always using the Server's PC name.
    This should help with networks that cannot properly resolve the correct IP address for the server's name.
    In general it is preferred to specify the IP address of the server rather than the server's name when selecting a server.

  3. About screen
    The path to the current database location in UNC format is now shown and a button to launch file explorer added to attempt browsing to the database location.This can be useful for troubleshooting network connectivity. If it is necessary to enter network credentials (for the server) they can be entered when prompted for in File explorer.
    Make sure you provide credentials (a user ID and password defined on the server), and check-mark the "Save credentials" if prompted in file explorer.

  4. USEF validation
    Updated to resolve a change USEF made to their API that broke lookups.

  5. USEF validation
    Corrected problem where USEF reported JU rather than JR for rider type.

  6. USEF lookup / validation timeout extended from 60 to 120 seconds to handle slow USEF response on large shows during validation.

HSS  December 04, 2018   Version: 3.2018.1203
Changes and Notes

This update incorporates all changes required to meet USEF's new data services (API) effective Dec 1, 2018.  
USEF is discontinuing their old API and older versions of HSS (and other software) will no longer work with USEF as of Dec 1, 2018.

Changes in 3.2018.1203 update:
  1. Competition status analyzer – Entry details now sort by role instead of name.

  2. USEF lookups now align with the Show start date rather than current date when querying USEF for data.
    This will better coordinate membership dates at USEF with the show start date.

  3. USEF Person validate/lookup screen now includes the new “Suspension Status field” field from USEF.
    Possible USEF Details values are: "YES", "MED", "MGT", "LO", "NO". Yes is used for Exhibiting Suspensions

  4. USEF Person validate/lookup screen now includes the new “Suspension details” field from USEF.
    Possible USEF values are: "Allowed on competition grounds", "Horses can compete", "". Only displays for applicable records where Suspension Status = 'YES'

  5. Reports: "Attendees at show" report has new columns indicating the person’s roles in the show (IE: Owner, Rider, Trainer).

Changes since Dec 1, 2018:

  1. Credit card processing: Jetpay processor updated to support TLS1.2 encryption.

  2. HSS site URLs updated to use new TimeSlice and HSS site URLs for connectivity.

  3. Resolved problem where Dressage tests would not update from the "File / Update dressage tests" menu item due to new secure site access.

  4. New global report:
    New cross tab report added to Reports Explorer / Global: Hunter Division Entry counts - All Shows.
    This lists the count of non-scratched entries in each show division in each show.
    The count is based on the number of entries in the class designated as the First Over Fences class for the division.

  5. Improved search feature in Horses, Riders, Owners, Trainers grids.
    Automatically filters and searches by Horse name, Owner name, First name, Last name and USEF number.

  6. All USEF features re-written to use new USEF Web services that are effective Dec 1, 2018. 

  7. USEF Results export updated to meet USEF 2019 Results template requirements

  8. USEF lookup screens and menu/toolbar items added to launch USEF search for horses or people.

  9. USEF validation screens have additional fields and highlight colors.
    Pink indicates mismatches between USEF’s information and HSS information.
    Yellow indicates a USEF warning when a horse or person is suspended, Membership active dates are not valid for the show date, USEF Safe sport training has expired, or USEF Background check has expired.

    In horse and people editor, press the ENTER key on keyboard in the USEF number field to launch the USEF validation screen.
    HSS will look for the USEF number, or if that field is not complete will search by matching Horse name or for People editor by person’s name, city and state.

    When a search by name discovers multiple matching records, the screen will display all matches and allow you to select the horse or person to use.
    This makes it relatively easy to populate a horse or person record by searching USEF’s data using just a horse name or a person’s name and address.

  10. USEF Non member analyzer updated to use new USEF web service.

  11. USEF Section code update updated to use new USEF web service.

  12. Entry editor USEF status tab updated to use new USEF web service.
    New columns and logic added to USEF Status grid to display Membership Start / End dates, Safe sport training expiry date, and Background check expiry date.
    The expiry dates are compared to the show start and end date. Dates are considered out of range if they are not valid during the duration of the show.
    Safe sport expiry only applies to adults aged 18 and over.
    Background check expiry only applies to trainers.

  13. NEW “Chip status” field shown on Basic tab of entry editor to indicate if the horse has a microchip number or not based on USEF data.

  14. NEW USEF bulk validation rewritten to use new USEF web services.
    Bulk validation now combines all people into a single list rather than separate rider, owner, trainer lists.Validation will apply non-blank USEF information to a horse and person records for records / fields you select during validation.

    Tool tips when hovering over a cell or a row selector in the validation screen will display current information for the record versus USEF information so you can preview the differences.
    Update multiple records by selecting multiple rows, or apply single cell updates by double clicking the cell or pressing the space bar while focused on a cell.  Use the cursor up/down/left/right keys to navigate the cells from the keyboard if desired.

    Horse Height has special rules during validation:
    If the "Measured at Show" flag in a horse record is checked, USEF height will only overwrite the height if USEF has a non-blank height.
    When the measured at Show flag is not checked, the USEF height will always overwrite the horse record height even if USEF has no height recorded (IE: Blank).
    If a USEF height overwrites a measured at show height during validation, the Measured at Show flag is reset in the horse record.

  15. NEW USEF Competition Status Analyzer.
    Use this screen to review USEF information that is required for people and horses. Suspensions, Expired memberships, Safe sport training expiry,
    Background check expiry, Microchip status for horses etc.

  16. NEW “Measured at Show” checkbox added to horse records. Horse Height has special rules with respect to USEF validation.
    If the "Measured at Show" flag is set in the horse record, USEF height will only overwrite the height if USEF has a valid height.
    When the measured at Show flag is not set, the USEF height will always overwrite the horse record height even if USEF has no height recorded (IE: Blank).
    If a USEF height overwrites a measured at show height during validation, the Measured at Show flag is reset in the horse record.

  17. NEW Right click in show manager to launch USEF Validation by trainer.
    Loads the USEF Validation screen listing all people and horses related to the trainer of the selected entry.

  18. NEW Right click in show manager to launch USEF Competition Status Analyzer trainer.
    Loads the USEF Competition Status Analyzer screen listing all people and horses related to the trainer of the selected entry.

  19. NEW Online entry processing screen provides a new USEF Information grid that provides the current USEF information for each person and horse in an online entry.
    This allows you to review the important USEF credentials, expiry dates, suspension status of each entity in a submitted entry prior to accepting (or rejecting) the entry.
    The USEF info panel provides a feature to print the information and/or to print the information and the online entry form.
    The information panel highlights problem information in red. For example, missing or invalid USEF number, USEF membership dates out of date for the show date, Missing horse microchip number etc.

  20. Import of Online Entries will no longer import a horse’s height from the online entry.

    Settings on this tab let you control specific behaviours for the class when exhibitors submit an online entry to your show.
    "Checkbox - Allow exhibitors to select this entry during online entry". If not checked the class will not be listed during online entry.
    You can specify that a specific association (EG: USEF, ASHA, THJA etc.) number is required to enter the class, and which entities require the number - IE: Owner, Rider, Trainer.
    If you specify that an association number is required, then HorseShowsOnline will force the user to provide the appropriate association number before they can submit the entry.
    This provides finer control over requiring association numbers than forcing the requirement for the entire show.

  5. Division Champ Chart Tool:
    A new feature provides the ability to compute division results.
    The champ chart tool is accessible from the Divisions tab in show manager. Select a division and click the "Champ Chart" button.

    HSS will compute the division results (Champion and Reserve) for the division based on points.

    A screen cast demonstrating how to use the Champ Chart tool is available at:
    Champ Chart Video

    The champ chart tool lists and flags as included all classes within the division.
    Model classes defined for the show are also listed so that you can manually include a model class(es) in the computation if desired.
    If a model class is defined for the division it is automatically selected for inclusion.
    Checkboxes for each class in the division allow you to exclude/include a class.
    Checkboxes for each class allow you to indicate if Bonus points should be used for the class. The checkbox defaults to the "Bonus Points" setting in the class record.
    Default points values can be overridden if necessary.
    Default points are the USEF standard 10, 6, 4, 2, 1, .5
    Default Bonus points default to: 15, 9, 6, 3, 2, 1

    When computing points, HSS adds the number of points in Over fences classes.
    Under Saddle, and Model points are added to the entry's over fences points if the entry is within the top N (default 4) ranking of over fences classes.
    In order for an entry's total points to include Under saddle and Model points, the entry must rank within the "Top N" (typically 4) over fences points within the division.
    A setting is provided so that you can change the Top N value for unique situations. For example, for California split divisions, you may want to change the TopN value to 8.

    A setting is provided for California Split champ / reserve placing.
    When this is enabled, HSS will compute a minimum of 2 champions and 2 reserves in the division.
    When there are ties for champ / reserve, HSS will attempt to break the tie based on the entry's Over fences points.
    Champ and Reserve are determined based on total points.
    When a tie occurs, HSS will look at the separate subtotal of just Over fences classes for the tied entries to break the tie if possible.

  6. Division Editor: New button "Class proofing report" generates the class proofing report. The report lists all the classes in the division along with the class settings.

  7. Division Fees: A new "Billing mode" drop down in division editor defines how division and class entry fees are charged for the division and the classes within the division.

    For classes flagged as Bonus points, the points values are: 15, 9, 6, 3, 2, 1
    Points are only computed for placings 1 through 6.

A comparison is provided with exports to Excel and PDF.

    It is important to understand that a person may be related to multiple entries, but you should only charge the fee(s) once per person, and NOT for each entry. The tool should be used only for comparing USEF against what you have charged. DO NOT assume you have to charge for each entry. Your mission is to ensure the TOTAL overall fees you have charged equal what USEF expects.

Oct 7, 2003 Version 3.2.63

Support added for "Sibling classes":
Sibling classes let you have a "master" class and one or more classes with the same properties that are related to the master class - in other words a "group" of classes. When a horse is entered into the master class it is also entered into ALL the sibling classes that are related to the master class.

With this feature you can easily manage double judged classes as well as triple and quadruple judged classes with total flexibility on a class by class basis. HSS numbers the sibling classes using the same class number as the master class with a .1, .2, .3 etc. appended to the end of the class number.
EG: Master class=200, then sibling classes would be 200.1, 200.2, 200.3 ...

Considerations with sibling classes:

  1. HSS will attempt to add / scratch an entry from all siblings when an entry is entered into / scratched from a class. Under some circumstances HSS will not scratch an entry from a sibling class. EG: if results have been posted to the sibling class
  2. Class entry fees are used for each sibling. Therefore the total amount billed will be the entry fee multiplied by the number of siblings (including the base class). So if you have the base class and one sibling, and the Base class entry fee is $25.00, then the amount billed will be 2 x $25.00 = $50.00.
  3. Prizes are computed and awarded in the normal way for EACH of the siblings (and master) in the group.
  4. Results are entered for each sibling.
  5. When entering into a group of sibling classes, simply enter the base class number. There is NO need to specify the sibling class numbers. HSS will enter the entry into all the related classes.
  6. The invoice will list each sibling in the group.
  7. Results and points will be computed on EACH of the siblings in the group. In other words, the sibling classes are treated just like regular classes

Notes on prize money applied to invoices

  1. Prize money / results will only be shown and applied to invoices after a class is CLOSED.  Do not expect to see results on invoices until you close the classes the entry is entered into.
  2. A new field is used with cheques to indicate the actual cheque amount versus the prize amount awarded. 
  3. When applying prizes against invoices the cheque amount paid will be the net winnings AFTER the winnings have been first used to credit the invoice.
  4. You will notice that in “Apply prizes to invoices” mode, you will still see “PRIZE” type cheque records in the cheques grid, however the “Chk Amount” field will be $0.00.  The “Prize” field will still reflect the prize amount the entry has won.  1099 / Tax reporting still uses this amount regardless of refund cheques issued.
  5. When a show is running in “Apply prized to invoices” mode:
    1. the cheque printing system will create “REFUND” cheques and update the “Cheque amount” payable when you open the cheque printing manager.  ONLY cheques that are NOT already marked as “printed” will be updated.  Existing REFUND cheques (if any) that are marked as printed but have an incorrect amount will be marked as VOID.
    2. You can only access the check printing manager if ALL classes are closed.  This also implies therefore that you must close all classes before any refund cheques can be created and issued.  This is fair since you really don’t know what the refunded amount will be until all prizes are awarded and therefore applied to invoices.
    3. You should avoid issuing refund cheques until you are absolutely sure you will not be editing any fees, payments or other things that might modify invoices.  Refund cheques are based on credit balances on invoices.  Change any invoice amounts and you will have sent the wrong refund amount.
  6. Cheques now have a “Type” field to indicate if the amount is a refund or a prize payout.  Refund cheques are created when you have configure the show to “Apply prize money to invoices”.  The refund amount is the net refund due after applying payments and prize money to invoices.  Their may or may not be a check depending on how much money an entry has won and their payments and fees.
  7. Changing the prize money award scheme after starting a show is not recommended for obvious reasons.
