  • I produce horse races and I’m having trouble configuring equations. Does Sportpress have the ability to account for total earning (money)and total players(horses)on a team(rider) and total events(races) attended?

    as of now i have to type everything in. can’t figure the equations out.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi!

    Thanks for reaching out.

    I’m not sure if I get what you mean.

    What kind of equation would you have in that? You can certainly store this data with player stats, but I’m not sure what kind of statistics you want for it.

    Thanks!

    I’m not sure myself. I did the custom preset and I’m having a lot of confusion trying to understanding the equations.

    I want to use “teams” to account for riders and “players” to account for horses as 1 rider could have 5 different horses. make since?

    Team(rider) account:
    In a season I need to account(display):
    – the riders name
    – total season earnings (money won)
    – the # of players(horses) they did this on(total season earnings = sum of earnings won on each horse)
    – total races enter for a season(events attended)
    – the total races placed in a season(the # of events where they actually won money)
    – placing percentage(or a ratio of events attended vs placed)

    Here’s an example – https://www.gofastraces.com/gfr-stats/

    I need to also account stats for each individual horse. Below is how I was thinking to account for it.

    Player(horses) account:
    1 Rider (team) could have 1 – 6+ horses. Each horse (player) needs to account:
    – Horse name
    – Total season earnings
    – Total races entered
    – total races entered
    – total races placed
    – winning percentage

    very similar to the rider info just broken down by horse.

    I can’t figure out how to automate this within the equations.

    Hi @gillyangelle,

    Unfortunately some of your requests need some custom code that is beyond the scope of WP forums. You may need to hire a developer to help you out with that.
    Specifically:
    In a season I need to account(display):
    – the riders name Possible
    – total season earnings (money won) Possible if the amount of earnings is standard for each place
    – the # of players(horses) they did this on(total season earnings = sum of earnings won on each horse) Possible but you have to add the number manually, or with some custom code to sum up the total number of players/horses each rider has
    – total races enter for a season(events attended) Possible
    – the total races placed in a season(the # of events where they actually won money) Possible if you create the OUTCOMES you want for each place
    – placing percentage(or a ratio of events attended vs placed) Possible

    Player(horses) account:
    – Horse name Possible
    – Total season earnings Possible if the amount of earnings is standard for each place
    – Total races entered Possible
    – total races placed Possible
    – winning percentage Possible

    So you should create your OUTCOMES (lets call them places). Then you can use them to the other equations to calculate earnings, wins etc.

    Thanks,
    Savvas

    Do y’all have any support resources that are more detailed and up to date on how to setup equations??…Like nothing is clear on how stuff functions and flows. The youtube videos are surface level and I’m having to customize my equations as its horse racing…I can’t figure anything out…the support isn’t supportive in all honesty, like I’m about to just give up…
