    I have an upcoming flight that looks full. This may end up being standby situation.
    As I recall CO/Shares system did not issue a UA style Departure Management Card, but rather, I usually would get a boarding pass that said.

    STBY - or something like that.

    Is this still the case?

    They can issue a BP that is noted standby if you do not have a confirmed seat. They don't always do it, but they can.

    First of all, you should be certain you understand the term standby. It sounds like you have a confirmed reservation on the flight, but no advanced seat assignement. You might be able to grab a specific seat at OLCI, which you should probably do as early as possible. Check the T&Cs for your carrier to see whether status is used to determine IDBs if the flight is oversold and not enough people volunteer.
