When people check-in they get added to the list. But check-in time is not a factor in the upgrade order.

If I can find 4 reward tickets, but need a fifth, what's the best way to combine itineraries? Book the 4 and then add the fifth?
try to search for 1 more reward flight and then add that way?

Make sure your AA mileage number is on the reservation.
If your BA number is already on, you'll usually need to call AA to change it or do it in the airport.
I did what he described in this post and it worked, easier then calling BA..

Is a 49min connection too risky if one has to change planes? Looking at a United red-eye flight from LIH-ORD with the stop in DEN.
