Quick Start Guide for Teams
The GameSheet digital scoring system replaces traditional paper score sheets and has two primary components:
- The Dashboard Website. This is where schedules are input, score sheets are accessed and where you can manage your team’s roster.
- The iPad Scoring App. This is the digital version of the paper score sheet. Games are scored using this app and are uploaded to the Dashboard website where they can be viewed.
Team Invitation Codes & League Access Key
Your league contact / administrator should have provided you with two different codes / keys:
- Team Invitation Code. The team invitation code is used to register a GameSheet account to access score sheets and team management features on our Dashboard website.
Example Team Invitation Code: HJ8nUrCV3X
- League Access Key. The league access key is used to sign in to the iPad Scoring app which is used exclusively to score games. Everyone in your league will have the same key.
Example League Access Key: ipad-abcdefg
