  1. Messaging

    Under the messaging tab, any new message requires selecting each individual official or selecting all. It would be nice if our individually created groups could be an option for selecting. As an example, we have several user groups for hockey (Referees at different Levels, Linesmen, Junior Referees, Timekeepers, etc). At times, we only wish to send messages out to Referees and Linesmen and not Timekeepers or Junior officials. Sometimes its the other way around. Rather than going in to our individual groups and sending messages, which means sending it out a few times, it would be nice to go in…

  2. Send a unique email when a game is edited (changed)

    Today, when a game is edited (date, time, or field), the assigned officials get a message that makes it appear they have received a new game. Then, some officials wonder what happened to the other game, the one that disappeared. Its the same game, only its at a new date or time. It is confusing for officials.
    My idea is when a game is changed, send the assigned officials a message: Game #12345 has been changed. The date or time or field has been updated. You must re-accept the game.

  3. Have the system warn you when an official has had a team or been at a site fairly recently.

    For example, have the system alert the assigner that Jim Smith had the Springfield Warriors within the past 14 days (or whatever time frame the assigner chooses - maybe give the options for 7, 14 or 21 days) Same thing for the location (instead of a certain team)

  4. Don't allow officials to respond to TBA requests when they are scheduled in a game at the same time

    The TBA system currently allows officials to respond to TBAs even when they are scheduled in another game at the same time. They don't come up on the assigning screen, but it is misleading to the official requesting the assignment.

  5. Flag or Highlight Games for review

    Add a "Flag" button to the Master Schedule that will allow an assignor to set flags or reminders to themselves for any game in the schedule regardless of its status.

    For busy schedules it would be very helpful to be able to have a visual cue to check back on a game for any number of reasons.

  6. Customize Official Ratings Questions by Position

    We should be able to customize questions based on the position the official is working. For example, Positioning does not apply to a Timekeepers job.

  8. When adding games, please add to the drop down menu an option to add team so that we don't have to go through the menu.

  9. Allows official to only accept or decline all games linked.

    Presently an official can accept two of the 3 games in a link and decline the 3rd. This causes the assignor multiple phone calls to correct this problem.

  10. Add ONE column to bill to personal that list their permission/bill to/organization

    When I export my bill to personnel in excel... I need to see what group/organization they correspond with. This is technically the 'bill to' they correspond with. I am making a master list and I can only find out by clicking their profile one by one. It should spit it out just like their town, number or email in the members directory.

  11. Allow Assigners to send a TBA when game has been turned back

    I have games that are turned back, but dont want to remove the official until I have found a replacement, but send a TBA. (our officials do not have the authority to send TBA only assigners)

  14. has a column in the 'bill tos' section of the members directory that shows which bill to the member is attached to

    next to the contact to feature which bill to the member is attached to. This should be a very quick and simple fix and would help me a lot. When I am asked to contact one of our bill to's... I currently just look at which town they live in and hope its the right person...

  15. contact crew by SMS

    currently I can contact the game crew by email, but I would like the option to do this by SMS. Most communication between officials is by text - especially if it is close to game time. Young referees don't check their email regularly - I need to contact them by text.

  16. Hide score in the master schedule if not submitted

    After an official submits a game report, the score shows up on the master schedule... unless the scosre is 0 to 0, then it APPEARS as though no one submitted a game report! How about if you make it so that 0 to 0 scores show up on the master schedule as 0 to 0 once a game report is filed. Thank

  17. Create Contact Groups based on distance

    Allow you to create a contact group of all officials within a certain regional area, maybe by selecting off the map.

    I assign as part of a national association and only want to reach my officials in a small area. Instead of going thru the thousands of people one by one it would be much easier to put up the map or sort by distance to select my officials for my group.

  18. flat rate mileage based on location

    Allow for mileage to be paid strictly based on the location of the game. Park A pays $10, Park B pays $12, etc. We don't care where the official is coming from, mileage is paid based on where the game is.

  19. Expand Manual Game ID Length to 12 Characters

    Hello,

    The game import is an important feature to bring games in from associations. The Game ID field is limited to 8 characters however some of the games being imported have up to 12 characters due to the association settings.

    Would it be possible to change the field length from 8 to 12? This will greatly assist with game updates as they come in. They can be updated en masse rather than one by one.

  20. Track TBAs posted by schedulers

    Track the number of TBAs issued by scheduler.
    How many TBAs they are posting and how many days in advance those TBAs are being posted. This would be helpful in grading assignors/schedulers.

    This would track games being posted rather than being accepted
