  1. Show the Stableford points on the app in Multiround games

    Hi,

    During the multi round option, can you make the the leader board display the stableford scores instead of over and under par?

    Makes it a lot easier to read.

    Thanks

      Hi,

      The Multiround leaderboard on Stableford format does show the net score of player in relation to his handicap. If the Stableford is selected as a primary game format the points are shown on the application leaderboard and when you press on the player the scorecard opens where you can see also the points made. The overall points are visible only in the normal game play, so the problem of not having them on the leaderboard is only with the multiround games. We will add the points to multiround games as well in the future. The leaderboard still updates according to the points.

    • Track club by club statistics

      How about allowing users to add the clubs in his/her bag into GameBook, and the using the GPS to track and analyse club distances over time, creating a database of what is your assumed distance club by club?

      And once that's done, GameBook could then even start suggesting clubs based on that data while on course.

        Hi!

        The current club distance-feature is mainly for fun factor and social sharing, but we have a thought about this and we might develop some sort of tracking of the club distances in the future.

      • View the scorecard on score entry view

        I love the new version, there is a lot of improvements but I miss an special easy way to see the player scorecard thought the round is in process. In the past version, when I click in the PLAYER NAME (in the group where I'm playing), I can see the round progress hole by hole. This is lost in the new version. Would be great if you can add it again. Thanks and congrats !!

        • Playing groups different from teams

          My group of 20 usually plays stableford format with five 4 man teams (A-D player on each team). Team members do not always want to play in the same foursome (A's sometimes want to play together, B's etc). It would be very helpful if there was an option to set teams from players who are not necessarily playing in the same foursome.

            Hi,

            Thanks for posting this idea!

            Unfortunately we don’t have plans to develop this at the moment, but I have set this idea’s status to “under review”.

            Our application can already be used similarly, but this would require 4 or 5 devices (for different team members) per group and each player to enter his own score to the application. The scores would be combined from each team member as they enter their scores.

              Hi there!

              This is something we have discussed already some time ago but decided not to implement just yet. This could surely be added to the app and round statistics. Our team also finds this as a great feature to have. However implementing this will take some time and the idea is now gathering further votes from our users.

                Hi,

                The Apple Watch app uses the GPS coordinates from your phone, however we are currently looking into the possibility of using the Series 2’s GPS location instead of the phone’s. If we decide to start the development it might take some time.

                  This can already be done in Match Play by using Match Play handicaps. In other formats you have to modify the handicaps manually to play off low handicap.

                  Would be great if you could "save ball position" on your shot of the tee and then you could review these online or even in the app itself when playing the same course again.

                  Easier to remember where you shanked it during the previous round on the same hole. Could work hand in hand with the measure distance feature :)

                      Right now we don’t have plans to bring the “Social Leaderboards”-feature back. The idea is now gathering votes.

                      You can still view your friend’s played games from the Notifications, or from the GameBook Feed where shout-outs are generated from the friend’s rounds.

                      • Preload course layout for poor data connection

                        It would be good to allow smooth working of the app if we could download the course map prior to playing so that on those courses that have poor signal, full functionality can still exist. A simple option on the course option to make available offline would make this simple for users to manage.

                                  Our system doesn’t support this at the moment (as you have obviosly noticed), but we have taken this to our attention and we will discuss about this with our team. To be able to support this method our system requires huge UI and back-end changes and we need to carefully consider everything that is involved in this method before developing this. Along with your support request we noticed that Australia follows EGA’s system at the moment, we have now changed Australia to follow USGA’s handicap calculation method from now on. USGA’s formula is: (Handicap x slope/113).

                                  Please let us know if there’s anything else I can help you with.

                                    Please can you add extra Extra Challenges at stokeplay format. It is very poor that we have to make all our games at PC. Or change the game after we played. I dont think that wont be so hard fix. And at skins game extras too.

                                    • Year selection to Eclectic scorecard

                                      Hi! You just added this new feature in Gamebook, is it possible to make a year selection option in it? Meaning that you could see only for example this years eclectic scorecard, for the course you selected. Same kind of selection what you can make in the statistics page, only one year or all.

                                      Thanks,
                                      Patrick

                                        Hi there,

                                        Thanks for the suggestion! Right now we don’t have plans to add a year selection to Eclectic scorecard but we will discuss about this with our developers.

                                        Kind wishes,
                                        GameBook Team

                                        When downloading scorecards in Excel format (XML) it has firstname, lastname and scores, but it would be nice to have the Gamebook userid / email to avoid problems with persons with identical names

                                        • Duplicate game for easy set up

                                          In the previous version, you could look at list of rounds played , then swipe left and duplicate a game set up. Don't seem to be able to do this now
