Play-Cricket Scorer FAQ


 How can I connect the app with my FSL scoreboard?

To integrate with your FSL scoreboard:

1) From the Settings screen of the app, or the settings page when starting a match, select 'External Scoreboard'.

2) Select 'Settings'. This screen displays the categories and the corresponding indices for your FSL scoreboard. Move the categories using drag and drop (iOS) or the arrow buttons (Android) until the categories and indices match the setup of your FSL scoreboard.

 

To connect with an FSL scoreboard:

1) From the settings page, when starting a match, select 'External Scoreboard'.

2) Select 'Device'. A list of all available Bluetooth devices will display - simply select the item in the list that matches your FSL Scoreboard.

3) If the app is able to connect to your scoreboard, you will momentarily be returned to the 'External Scoreboard' screen, and the device status will display as 'Connected'.

4) Select 'Back', and continue setting up the match as per usual. The app will now handle all communication with the FSL Scoreboard during the match.




When you log in, the first screen that displays is the ‘Matches’ screen. The Settings icon in the top left corner provides access to match settings. 

 

 Note: Multiple Scorers

Multiple scorers can now score any Play-Cricket game simultaneously.

  • Primary scorer:
    • First user to access a match is the primary scorer
    • Primary scorer has the lock on the match, and therefore the ability to sync scores to Play-Cricket.
    • Primary scorer has the ability to release the lock on the match at any point by pressing Back, and Saving and Unlocking the match
  • Secondary scorer(s):
    • No lock on the match, and therefore no ability to sync scores to Play-Cricket.
    • Secondary scorers are essentially scoring the match in a ‘standalone’ mode.
    • If the primary scorer relinquishes the lock on the match, a secondary scorer can take over the lock by pressing the Lock icon in the toolbar and following the prompts.

NB: Successfully taking over the lock on the match will clear the local version of the match from the user’s device, and replace it with the most up-to-date synced version from the Play-Cricket system.
