How Pop-Ups Work


What Are Pop-Ups?

Pop-Ups are messages that display to the user either upon app open or in the Scorecard/GPS. They are dependent on the user having the app open and performing an action, such as opening the Home Screen, navigating to the next hole, or recording their strokes and navigating to the next hole in the Scorecard/GPS.
