    There are no issues we are currently tracking or that have been reported on the use of the schedule filters. If you are having trouble with them, please open a support ticket by using Get Help >> Step #4 with a detailed explanation of the issue(s) and we can have someone look at it immediately for you. In the meantime, this isn’t really a new feature request, so we are declining the idea. Thank you.

  2. Auto decline if unaccepted past 72 hours

    Automatic decline a game if that game hasn't been accepted within 72 hours of it being published. We have people that leave the game unaccepted till the last min. I usually have to call them to see if they are doing it.

    We have decided not to incorporate this feature, mostly due to space limitations. The reminders box is present on both the desktop and mobile versions of the system. Including day of the week and venue would overcrowd the reminders box in our opinion. The intent of the reminders box is to provide a short and right to the point reminder and allow you to pull full information from the main location – in this case, the schedule page. Thank you for the idea, though.

  4. google calendar

    Did you remove this feature ?

    Although this is a great idea, our competitors are not so willing to allow us to create a feature like this. We’ll keep this in the back of our minds, however, we’re declining this idea since the reality is that we will most likely not be able to create a feature like this. Unfortunately, it is beyond our control. Thanks for the idea.

    There is already a mobile version of our system and has been one for quite some time. It will generally automatically take you there if you’re using a widely recognized mobile device like an Android, iPhone, Blackberry, Windows Mobile, or similar device. If not, there is an option at the bottom of the page to manually use the mobile version. The mobile version can even be used on a desktop computer if you wanted, although it’s not recommended.

  10. Changing availability after accepting a schedule game

    I was assigned a game and I wanted to block out my availability for the remainder of the day and it doesn't appear that I can do that. Not having the ability to modify my availability for a day that I have an assigned game seems insufficient. Some weeks after being assigned a game I may not want to be available for any more games. When I'm assigned a game how does that effect my availability?

    This feature actually already exists, however, it is controlled by your scheduler. If you are not permitted to change your availability after being scheduled, it is because your scheduler is not allowing you to do so. They do have the option to lift this restriction, but it would be at their discretion. Hope that helps.

  11. Flashing banners

    Any thing that flashes at you is irritating, I suggest using colors to catch the eye instead.

    At this time we only use flashing in two locations for System Updates and System Reminders, both of which we consider essential information. We’ll look for alternative options in the future, however, at this time we find the flashing to be the most effective for getting the attention of all our users, when necessary. Thank you for the idea.

  12. Time Restrictions re: Accepting Assignments

    When assignments are published, the administrator should be able to determine when the assignment must be accepted by. If the official does not accept it by the date allocated, it will be automatically turned back to the assignor for re-assignment.

    Some games require a direct reason when declining a game. Additionally, declining a game should be a rare occurrence when using the system properly, as you should almost never get a game you don’t want. To deter users from simply forgetting to update their calendar, blocks or other areas we are declining this idea as we don’t want to make it easy to decline games. We would prefer that users use the tools available to avoid having to decline games at all. Thank you for the idea, though.

  14. allows viewing game data of any game even if games have not been accepted/declined.

    I would like this option to be able to see who are the other assigned officials whether or not they have accepted or declined the game.

  15. iPad/Android App

    An app that allows mobile devices to access horizonwebref. Doesn't necessarily need the entire interface but an app that gives access to schedule, members roster and school addresses would be helpful.

  16. Game Details

    My Game Details Pop-Up has a very small width set, and I must scroll left and right constantly to read the information. It would be nice to have it as wide as this feedback request pop-up...

  19. return the update button on the availability page

    I am quite surprised, and disappointed, with this change. Clicking an update button at the end of entering changes, especially on a page where lots of information could be accidentally changed with an inadvertent mouse click, is just standard web interface protocol.

    Without the update button, the only way to ensure the change has gone through is to regenerate that page. For example, your provider has a momentary glitch, and one of your updates is not applied, but how would you know? The previous way, where the changed dates would flash in succession, was absolutely perfect. I hope we return…

    We have decided not to incorporate this idea, however,we have added additional notifications to the calendar page so that you can be more aware that your change has successfully been recorded. A System Update has been posted with additional details. Thank you.
