Thanks for the response. Presumably you can't enter them as if you're actually playing that day? I know it's technically wrong but I think it's ethically in the right place because my handicap should be lower now :D
Ethically it’s wrong because it’s against the WHS rules plus you would have to make the marker implicit in the rule break.

HC Sec can also see on their WHS DB when you enter scores via the app.

hmm fair enough. Do you think my pro should be able to enter cards from other courses? I always thought that would be the case.

Thought I'd post this here.
When you enter a general play score I was under the impression that your index is updated Durring the late hours that day/early morning. However, I've noticed recently it changing the instant my marker authorises the score. Is this correct?

Does it actually update or just show the adjustment that will take place the following day as it does on the WHS DB?

I can see the logic to that as that is exactly what happened under the old system once a comp was closed or a sup card was entered the HC change was made.

I've just done my first casual round on Monday and I noticed this too. Round got listed and my HI changed. This seems to different to a comp score, where the round is listed but the calculation for HI is done over night

My understanding is that ISVs cannot make handicap changes. Only the WHS can do that. Certainly the local data is sent to the WHS dynamically and the WHS shows a predicted outcome (subject to PCC etc). WHS calculates the actual outcome overnight. I haven't checked my ISV (HDID in my case) to see if has made a prediction before 'midnight' but I suspect not.

I’ve just entered 20 odd scores direct into EG dashboard ( sudden closure of Pro shop for COVID positive results and subsequent isolations of remaining staff). A few HIs changed to indicate a predicted HI but it’s obvious that it’s waiting for the overnight shuffle to bring in the PCC to finalise the new HIs.

then I got the NHS isolation notification for the next 8 days - I was looking forward to our Seniors Open on Monday and Selby Open on Thursday. B***er!

I took it that the poster used the EG app (may be wrong) and not the ISV app.

My experience with players entering General Play cards is that the HI change seems to take place immediately
