  1. Add a VSP to System Setting 52 to prevent unqualified officials from seeing and requesting games they are not qualified for.

    System setting 52, as is, allows an official to give an assignment to an unqualified official, even with the warning. This results me and assignors getting an "TBA Unqualified Warning!", which then means we now have to react and fix the problem, i.e., reassign the game to a qualified official. That, of course, completely defeats the benefits of allowing officials to swap assignments among themselves.

    The ultimate goal of the TBA System is to ensure the game is covered and has assignments filled however, with system setting 52, officials are trying to swap games that are already covered and assignment…

  2. Add position filter to Schedule Search & Filter

    Problem: In TBAs, I have to look through many games that already have two referees assigned, but need a scorekeeper.

    It would be super helpful to filter the schedule such that I could show only the games that need a referee

  3. Filter TBA Requests by # of Officials per game

    When officials are searching TBA Requests, allow them the ability to filter games by # of Officials. There are officials who only want to work games depending on how many officials are assigned to a game. Games codes often do not depict how many officials are on each game.

  4. Text bubble appear when hovering over the "action / game details" icon

    In the "my schedule section", it would be nice if when you put your cursor over the "action" icon it made a quick little bubble pop out with your assignment (plate, base, etc), and your partners name. It would just save a bunch of clicks and going back and forth.

  7. Allow an official to set a "max games per day" in their profile and then shut down availability once that number is met.

    ie if I set my max to 2 games, once I have two games accepted in my schedule, close down my availability for that day. Would be great if this showed on the scheduler side as well so that if for instance, they tried to schedule an official for 3 games, it would show them that the official is only interesting in doing 2.

  8. Ability to request help and additional training for certain aspects of officiating

    As a ref, I have experience, but still sometimes struggle with calling certain penalties. I would love to see a system where you can request additional training and assistance with making these calls. I know that it may be more difficult because of covid, but I believe this will really help refs who didn't get the on-ice training this year due to covid, such as myself.

  9. Require Game Reports From Officials

    This should be game dependent. Playoffs require this report as mandatory and regular season is optional.

    In "Features & Settings", when enabled, the assignor should have to option for yes or no when adding a game.

  10. Member Directory - "All Officials" Hidden Option

    Have an option in the System Settings that will hide the directory for "All Officials" to regular members. When having so many officials in the system, it helps privacy issues when dealing with multiple leagues.

  11. Start location by day, or date

    Start location by day, or dateCan't see a way to add this to existing Request. Prev Appointments System I used for years (Arbiter) allows Official to declare starting zip code for each day Mon-Sun which allows for (obvious and very common) situation where Official has different start zip on work days. Should be over-writeable (in Availailability) for specific days when you know you'll only be available from (yet another) zip.

  12. "Reminders" displays mostly unhelpful info for a busy Referee

    It is not a "Reminder" to have birthdays posted: delete (or allow me to parameterise away) this still feature which most Referees have zero interest in but do not know how to disable even their own birthday data being published

    The reminder CRUCIALLY doesn't remind you WHERE you are assigned and to WHAT. In my case, I am often at 2 different fields on a single day so what I need reminding of is not "You have an appointment approaching on Sat 22nd August at 1:00pm" but useful info which ould be instead posted VERY briefly:
    Reminders:
    Sat22 1pm Taringa…

  16. Don't allow officials to give games to unqualified officials using the TBA System.

    At this time, any official can request any game from another official using the TBA system, even if they aren't rated. This causes the assignors to constantly be monitoring the alerts. Is there a way to have it as a preference if the organization does not want unqualified officials to be able to request those games? It is good for them to see the games if they are in a set, but not be able to 'grab' them.

  17. Provide Officials with a Payroll Report CSV export option

    The "Exportable Version" option does very little good when trying to put a usable payroll report together that I can use for end-of-year tax reporting. P
    Being able to export my payroll games in a manipulable file format would be highly useful.
    Or add the Fee Column to the Schedule Export to CSV option, as that's the important information.

  18. Allow to Sort TBA by Location

    Currently the TBA's are sorted by Time only, which makes seeing sets at the same rink very difficult to see. It would be really useful if TBA's were sorted the same as in the Assignor view (Rink, then Time and Date)

  20. Only require 1 rating per linked game set

    If there are linked assignments, only have one rating fellow official requirement. For example, not have to rate fellow official 3 times for each of the 3 linked games
