Upwind Legs for ATC

Hello, as I’m learning atc, I have a question

When is the upwind leg actually used ?, I’ve never had to use it when having aircraft on patterns and I don’t see an option for it in the atc menu so I’m wondering if there is any situation where it should be used

Thanks :)

There isn’t an upwind or crosswind leg command. If you want to sequence an aircraft behind an aircraft on upwind, wait until he’s on downwind or late crosswind then sequence.
