When creating a competition, the association is responsible for entering a number of settings that will flow through to the e-score device.  These settings cannot be edited during the e-score session, so its important association admins are aware of these settings and the impact they can have on the scorer.


E-score Setting

These settings are configured in the game setting section.  Admins will set defaults for each game type (two day+, One day and T20) when creating their competition and then make edits when required for individual grades. These settings can be updated at any stage but its important to note that if you update your competition defaults, these changes will not be reflected in grades already created.  You will need to make these changes in each grade.
