OpenTrack can now dynamically generate images for social media based on the results of your competition, allowing athletes and fans to click one link to get a nice graphic for social media.
At the moment we can generate images that are the recommended sizes and shapes for Facebook (landscape), a square Instagram post, or a portrait Instagram story.
The Facebook-style image will also show up if you drop the link to a set of results into WhatsApp, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, etc.
If you are interested in having custom images for your meeting, feel free to contact email@example.com to discuss your needs.
For Meet Organisers¶
In the Downloads management screen, the Event Poster with QR Code button generates a printable PDF with a QR code that links straight to the results of your competition, with helpful information to get athletes and others using the social cards.
To access sharing images, look for the Share button in the red banner at the top of a results page.
Each type of image shows a varying number of competitors depending on space available.
The Facebook-style image shows the top three in an event:
An Instagram post shows the top five athletes in an event:
An Instagram story shows the top eight athletes in an event:
For competitions using team scoring, each scoring table has a Share button.
There are also general or country-specific graphics that show competitions happening in the next 90 days.
For a general graphic, head to data.opentrack.run/x/share/.
For a specific country, simply add the country code to the end of the URL, i.e. /GBR.
These social cards will continue to evolve, and any feedback on what you or your competitors would be looking for is welcome at firstname.lastname@example.org.
