After you check in at the event, you will receive a QR code you can scan to set up to five phone numbers for your team.

Shortly after you add a phone number, a confirmation message will be sent. If you don't receive the confirmation text, double-check the number was entered correctly.

You can scan this QR code again at any time to update the list of phone numbers for your team.

You can also tap the "Add to Slack" button to select a Slack channel to receive queuing notifications.

Didn't receive the QR code at the event? Check with the lead queuer or at pit admin.

Get notified

Text notifications can't be guaranteed- it is possible for SMS messages to be delayed or not delivered. Always keep track of match progression and queue when it's time- even if you don't receive a text.

The lead queuer at the event controls when teams are called to queue for their scheduled matches. In typical match flows, this is the timeline leading up to and including the match:

You will receive up to two notifications before each match:

  1. Queue now: The first notification to queue for your match. This happens about two match cycles ahead of your match. In typical match flows, this is about 15 minutes before you need to be on the field. You should start moving towards the field as soon as you receive this notification.
  2. On deck: The final notification to queue for your match. This happens when your match is next to go on the field, about 7 minutes before you need to be ready to set up your robot. To ensure you don't miss your match, your robot should already be at the field by this point.

Once you reach the field, the queuer will check you in. Notifications are sent only if you have not yet checked in.

If you receive a queuing notification but your robot is not ready to go, send 1 drive team member to check in with the queuer at the field.
Semifinals & finals

After the playoffs reach the semifinals stage, queuing happens immediately for every team. Return to the queue ASAP after your match- queuing notifications will not be sent. A reminder of this will be sent to all teams that reach this stage. If possible, remain in the field area so that you will always know when you are required to return to the field.

Track

You can view the queuing dashboard for the event at any time from any internet connected device. Access the event dashboard by selecting your event at frcqueue.com.

The event dashboard will display the four matches in each stage of queuing: On field, On deck, Now queuing, Queuing soon. Estimated queue times will be displayed for some matches and will be updated over time based on actual match flow. For "On deck" and "Now queuing" matches, a label will be shown indicating when the match was updated to that state.

Access your team dashboard by clicking the link within any SMS notification or by navigating to the URL on the QR code handout.

The team dashboard will display all of your team's upcoming matches and which match is currently being queued. Estimated queue times will be displayed for some matches and will be updated over time based on actual match flow.
