I love, love, LOVE the 5E HL app! It's exactly what I need for the many games I run of this edition. However, there are a few features that are sorely needed to really get the most out of it for Adventurers League play.

1) Players in the AL choose a faction for their character from this list:
  • Harpers
  • Order of the Gauntlet
  • Emerald Enclave
  • Lords Alliance
  • Zhentarim
It would be handy it there was a place for that on the character sheet similar to PFS characters. There are also emblems for the factions in the Media Kit that could probably be added to the program, although IAMNAL.

2) Renown points and Downtime Days need to be tracked in the Journal. Renown works much the same way as in PFS, and you really only have renown in one faction at a time; however, I know of people who use Renown in home games that might have multiple different pools of Renown with different organizations.

Downtime Days are time you've accumulated to do side-projects, when you're not adventuring. They are covered a little bit in the PHB, and more treatment is given in the DMG. You can spend them for specific things like making items, learning a language, or (in the AL) leveling your character from level 4 to level 5, or level 10 to level 11; this is so that DMs (who probably gain less than their players) can still keep up when they all bring their characters to a convention.

Anyway, it's fantastic, and I'm really thankful so many people have put in the work to get this going!
