FAQ


What's the best way to get started?

We strongly recommend checking out some of the tutorial videos found in the Help toolbar menu within the app or on our YouTube channel. In particular, make sure to watch at least the RallyFlow™ Low and Medium detail level videos.

Start recording with the Low detail level until you feel comfortable, and then you can move up to Medium. Make sure to get some practice in with a scrimmage or video before your first live match!

Can I import my stats from iStatVball 2?

Absolutely. In fact, your old data can take advantage of many of the new features of iStatVball 3 including cloud based data syncing and backups. You can also for the first time analyze real career stats across all your seasons. Check out the Importing Stats tutorial video to get started.

Is a network connection required?

You do not need an internet connection to record stats! Some tasks like setting up your team, deleting data, and using live/sharing features do require a connection. But recording stats can be done entirely offline. If you’re in an area with weak connectivity, we recommend turning on ‘Airplane Mode’ so the app knows to run in offline mode.

How do I stat a "setter out" ball?

If you’re recording with RallyFlow™ using the default Medium detail level, the second ball contact is automatically attributed to the setter. If someone other than the setter sets the ball, do a quick swipe instead of a tap to bring up the player select menu, then choose the correct player. They will be credited with the assist if appropriate.

How do I print a PDF of my stats?

To output a stat report, tap the ‘Analyze’ button for the Match in question, then select the desired report. Tap the blue export button in the toolbar. You can then email the report wherever it needs to go. Email it to yourself to save or print the attached PDF as needed.

How do I export to MaxPreps?

To export a match to MaxPreps, first make sure the match has been ended. Then tap the export button in the lower right corner of the match card and choose ‘MaxPreps’.

Can I exclude non-league matches from season stats?

Yes, to exclude non-league matches when analyzing your season stats, tap Analyze on the season card, then select a stat category. Next tap the filter button in the toolbar, then in the League menu uncheck “Non-League”, then tap Filter.

How do I change/upgrade my subscription level?

On iOS, you can manage your subscription under iOS Settings-> Apple ID-> Subscriptions. On Android, you can mange your subscription under Google Play-> Subscriptions. If you subscribed on our website, or your change is not being recognized by the app, please contact us directly.

How do I handle a 6-2?

When substituting players, the player subbing in will inherit the position of the player they’re replacing. If you’re running a 6-2 (and use Auto Set with Legacy recording, or Medium Detail with RallyFlow), you’ll want to label your starting Opposite as a Setter (S) so that they’re automatically credited with set assists. In this way, you don’t have to manually change their position for every substitution.

How do I record a block?

With the RallyFlow default Medium detail level, you only need to select the player(s) for a block contact if the contact results in a point (block or error). You will be prompted to select the player(s) at that time. To indicate a block, first tap in the translucent block zone where the contact occurs, then tap wherever the ball goes next. Tapping out of bounds would indicate an error. Tapping on the opposing court then out of bounds, or long pressing on the opposing court, would both indicate a block.

How do I start a new season?

Tap the “Add New Season” card to create a new season for the desired team. When creating the season, you can optionally tap the Import button in the upper-right to import players, opponents, tournaments, and more from the previous season. This will copy the name, jersey number, photo, etc as a starting point. You can then make edits for the current season without affecting prior seasons. Players imported in this way will automatically be linked for career stats.

How can I force a match to end?

If you accidentally tapped End Set rather than End Match in the last set of your match, the match may still be showing as “in-progress”. In this case, you can force the match to end by tapping Edit on the match card, then tapping the small lock button in the lower-left. Conversely, if you ended the match too early, you can re-open the match in the same way.
