MyTouch Manager Game Day App
What does the Game Day App do?
Use it to:
When a team scores through the App, live scores will be displayed wherever the results are published on websites that display the Sporty draws widget.
How do I use it?
1. Register as a referee or obtain a scorer code for your team
Anyone who wants to use the App to score games must have credentials to access thier team fixtures. There are two methods to achieve this:
a) Request a scorer code from your Team Manager. When you get to Step 3 (Login), you can register and add your scorer code.
b) Alternatively, Register to your organisation on an official form. Once you've registered, your Province or Module administrator can see your record in their Teambuilder view, so can add you to your team(s) and add a permission to give you a Scorer login. When they do this, you'll automatically recieve an email that lets you set your own password that you can then use to login to the Sign In icon in the App.
If you are a referee, register to your Province or Module on an official form. Once you've registered, your Competition Organiser will assign you to a fixture, then add a permission to give you an Official Scorer login. When they do this, you'll automatically recieve an email that lets you set your own password that you can then use to login to the Sign In icon in the App.
2. Download MyTouch Manager
Find and download the MyTouch Manager App from the App Store or Google Play
Once you have downloaded the MyTouch Manager app, tap the Sign In button and login. Then follow the instructions in the Scorer's Guide to set team sheets and score games.

My phone died and I need to submit a team list, what do I do?
I have logged in, and I can't see my game?
What happens on Game Days if no-one has the app to score our game?
We recommend that more than 1 person in the team is given Scorer access for their team, or the Team Manager provides their device to a spectator to score the game for you.
The referee score submission will always be provided to your Competition Manager as the final score for the game.
How will the players get on the Team Sheet?
All players must be registered to appear for selection in a game day team. Unregistered players will not be able to be loaded to a game day team.
Some of my players aren't there, why?
Solution: player needs to register online and club admin needs to assign that player to the team so you can select them.
Do we have to select our team in the App?
Selecting your "Game Day Team" is an important part of the process in monitoring player eligibility. If a game day team is not selected, you can still score the game, but the try statistics will not be counted against a player, and we will be unable to count this game towards your "games played" tally for finals.
What do we do if we need to borrow players to make up our team?
You can select other players from your organisation to play in your game day team by clicking the "Select from other squad" option. Your association eligibility rules apply.
When do my results and team sheets need to be submitted by?
These timeframes will be set by your Competition Manager. Please confirm with your Competition Managertheir requirements.
I selected the wrong team to start the game.
If you selected the wrong team to tap the ball to start, click Pause, then Delete. You can now re-start the game with the correct team.
What if we can't agree on the score between the two teams?
Follow your Competition Manager procedures for official score submissions. The referee submission of score is generally accepted as final. To resolve a contested score in the app, you can scroll back through the 'scoring events' and see if you can identify the issue then correct it.
Why isn't my live scoring updating to the website?
Only the home team scorer can generate a live score for a game.
My phone died or I need to leave in the middle of the game while I am scoring, what do I do?
Before your phone goes flat, request someone else on the team logs in and "catches up" to the score that you are keeping. They can submit the final score on their own device, and you can "delete" your record of the game. Your referee will always submit the final result for the fixture.
My app is showing the end of half score in Red. What does this mean?
The app performs checks of your score submission vs the opposition team score submission to confirm your scores match. If the score displays in Red, this means there is a conflict in the score. When the score changes back to Green, this indicates both teams have the same score recorded.
What if our game goes to drop-off?
If your game goes to drop-off, you can continue to score the game as an extension of the 2nd half. The team that should tap the ball to start the drop-off period will be the team that does NOT display in Teal. Check the Game went to Drop-Off field when making your final score submission.
