Question regarding flows

Hey all,I'm a little confused. I have just printed the flows out for both the Captain and the First officer. I want to fly as the captain, and under pre-flight it says: 'Optional: Run the PreFlight events by pressing ‘RUN PF’ on the FS2Crew Config Panel. Note: If you run the Pre-Flight events routine, you must loadthe either the COLD AND DARK, SHORT OR LONG panel states prior to pressing RUN PF. These panel states are available via the PMDG 737's LOAD PANEL STATE MENU 'So what I am confused about is, if I am flying as Captain, and I start doing the pre-flight 'flow', so I start number 2 and setup cockpit lighting, does the first officer autamatically start his pre-flight flows? It says runing PF on the FS2crew config panel is optional, but inder first officer flows it says Trigger - > pressing the Run PF. So does this mean I have to press the RunPF in order to start the 'flow sequence'?Am I right in thinking that as I work through the 'flows' for the captain (which is me in the sim), the virtual first officer automatically works through his flows?Kind Regards and TIA,Dan.'

Yes. When you click the run pf, the FO says "Let's start...", and automatically starts his flows. You need to wait a little for him to start before you (He'll switch the battery on, connect the gpu and the external airconditioner/ air start unit, depending on your choice of course, etc etc,) then you, the captain, should start running your flows too. When the FO is ready for any checklist, he'll tell you
