I've registered to use Takedown LIVE, but our results aren't posting. Why?

Typically, your iPad isn't connected to the local WiFi network or to cellular data (if your iPad has that capability).  Please enable WiFi (or cellular data) on your iPad.

How do I know Takedown LIVE is working properly?

In Takedown Scoring and Stats, in the Scoring view confirm that the small Takedown LIVE icon at the bottom has a light green border.  If it has no border, Takedown LIVE isn't enabled.

Should I enable Takedown LIVE even if I'm copying from a paper scorebook?

Sure! Think of Takedown LIVE as a convenient place to present all of your match results to your fans.

The gym WiFi is spotty or doesn't work at all.  Should I turn on Takedown LIVE?
