Good point (it takes a village to get all the options revealed )

With check bags, the app will not be an option (locked out) -- only with an agent and there needs to be at least one hour in advance of both the old & new flight

Also, the app can only do a confirmed change, not standby.

More about SDC / Standby is covered in UA Same-Day Travel Change (SDC) Fees/Questions (with Wiki)
