How is the +/- stat calculated?
The plus minus column (+/-) shows your team's point difference while a player is in the game. So if your team outscores the opponent by 10 points while Sally is in the game, then her +/- is +10. However, if the opponent outscores your team by 3 points while Jane is in the game, then Jane's +/- is -3. The game clock is not necessary for the +/- stat to be accurate, you only need to track all points for you & your opponent in the game.

Why does Excel display some exported CSV data as dates
Some spreadsheet programs automatically try to determine data types and will interpret a 'made-attempt' column as a date. Each spreadsheet program is different, but there should be a way to import the CSV as general text.

Why do I get a 'conflict' when I sync devices?
Conflicts occur when two or more devices change the same piece of information, such as a player's name, before either sync. Conflicts are usually not serious, choose 'replace' to use the current device's change or 'discard' to use the remote device's change. To avoid conflicts try to sync before and after recording stats or making changes.
