View Team Results While Entering Scores

When entering scores, it is often useful (and always interesting) to be able see the team results change as scores are entered. Since the score entry screen doesn't do this, you can accomplish it by keeping the team list open in the background. This list shows the current event and total scores for each team and is updated automatically as each new score is entered.

If you monitor is large enough, you can see both the score entry and team list windows at the same time. You may have to place them at the extreme top and bottom of the screen to do this . If your monitor is not large enough to see them both at the same time, you should still be able to overlap the screens so that clicking on one screen will instantly bring it to the top for viewing or entering a score.

To make things even more interesting, you can select the "Score Order" tab on the team list. This will display the teams in order by total score, letting you instantly see which team is ahead.
