To help coaches and scorekeepers plan ahead for upcoming games, GameChanger allows Team Staff to create starting lineups from the game details page. These lineups will automatically populate for your team when scorekeeping mode is entered by any staff member. Staff also have the option to reuse the most recently used Starting Lineup if needed. After creating a lineup, Team Staff can export the lineup as a PDF that can be printed and turned in to the umpire. Please note that starting lineups cannot be edited once the game has entered Scoring Mode. You can watch a video tutorial on this feature here.
How to Set a Starting Lineup in the App
- From your team's Schedule tab, select an upcoming game.
- Choose Set Starting Lineup.
- Tap Add Players.
- Select all of your starters, and tap Done when finished.
- Set defensive positions by tapping the blue EH bubbles.
- Place players in the correct batting order by tapping and holding the 3 horizontal lines next to the player’s defensive position. Then drag the player to the proper spot in the order.
