1. Go to Check In.  Select the appropriate round and flight.

Functionally, out and unknown status is treated the same by the app.
*Note - The ability to make substitions and additions is not available yet.  Coming soon!

3. Go to Scoring

The scoring process should follow the expected order as set by the scoring software, with indicators for "UP", "ON DECK", "ON HOLD".
