I always pull the outhaul on before the mark, then the downhaul on, then the kicker, and then fine tune the downhaul, but I don't think it really matters.

rounding onto the beat I would concentrate on pulling the main in and dropping the plate, before moving on to kicker and outhaul - the crew might do this if they have got the spinny sorted out - dont use much cunningham in a miracle

I get the downhaul then outhaul (the downhaul affects outhaul tension) and a big handful of kicker, ten fine tune the kicker after rounding once the boat is sailing fast and in the right direction.Board down before rounding, of course.

Back when I had a boat... it was probably outhaul and inhaul just before the mark, board down immediately before commencing the steering, pull in the main in while rounding, kicker off then downhaul if I felt the need...
