Once a match has been played and results entered, the box will display green.
You can manually enter or edit results by clicking the Results button in the top right corner of the match box. Select the type of result from the drop-down menu, there are four types of results to choose from which are explained below.
- Regular Result: this is a standard match result
Enter the match results. Should you enter a result that is not valid, the box will highlight red. You can edit the matches location, time and date should you wish and optionally enter the duration of the match. If you are using the Score Squash app, the match duration will automatically update.
- Walkover: this is used when one player has arrived to play the match and the other player has not
Select the player who will progress, you can choose if you would like to forward on the looser or not which will often come down to the regulations for the event. Finally, there is an option to record why the walkover option was chosen, this is simply to document the reason why. Should you select No to Forward the loser, whoever is to play the player that will not progress, will become a bye and from that point forward, be a bye.
- Retirement: this is used when a match actually begins and part way through the match for some reason a player needs to retire
Select the player who is to retire and whether the player should Forward on.
- Default: this option is typically used for player misconduct
This option will allow you to record the result up to the point at which the match was stopped. Select the person who defaulted and whether the should be forwarded on.

When the players have completed their matches and you who will be playing who in the second half of the day, repeat the process to print out a new scoresheet.
