My Games screen

more info

Select the menu item, My games. You will be taken to a page that displays a list of all the games you are currently playing in. A sample page could look like this:

This screen can be customized as per your requirements. In the above example the first column Status shows Your turn for games where it is your move and Waiting where it is the opponent's turn. The little squares in the second column show your colour, Black or White. The next column Opponent shows the name of your opponent. Time Left is the number of days remaining before the next time control. Time spent is the number of days elapsed from the time the opponent made his move. Time is counted in units of calendar days which are 24-hour periods (see 4.2). The Event name and Last move played are shown in the next two columns.

Looking at the first line, in the above example, where Time spent is showing 54 days, you should not think that you have 54 days to make your next move. This is because there are rules for Silence (see 7.1) and Double-Time (see 7.2). Time management is an essential part of correspondence chess and it is very important to understand rules related to this perfectly.
