  1. Coach portal for ref assignments

    What I proposed is that you have a public portal where coaches or anyone could see if refs have been assigned to their game.

    This alone would prevent very costly scenarios where game date/time/location does match up with our game scheduling software. It would give our coaches an opportunity to confirm that what our websites show matches with what ref assignor has manually entered or imported into your system.

    Information required would simply be association, level, date/time, arena/pad, game number. That's it. We don't need to know who the refs are, just that our game information is exactly the same…

  2. Edit availability for remainder of day with assignments already scheduled

    I understand once I have an assignment, I can not edit my availability for that specific time window. But I should still be able to edit my availability for the remainder of the day that I am not assigned to. Would appreciate some insight on this if there is a reason for this or if I am missing something.

    Unfortunately, this is something we’ve decided not to incorporate. The system already displays warnings about this situation to schedulers, but there are circumstances where some schedulers may want to intentionally create a duplicate game. We’re not in favor of completely blocking this action. Instead, we’ll focus on providing warnings & alerts and allow schedulers to decide how to proceed. Thank you for submitting an idea.

  4. Decline/Turnback Data

    Horizon allows assignor's to charge a fee for each game declined or turned back. It maintains a count of how many games each official declines/turns back, but does it also maintain a specific record detailing each game/date? At the end of the season when we send invoices out to officials, the assignor only seems to be able to retrieve a report where these fees as listed under "adjustments." This immediately leads to officials sending emails like: "I didn't decline any game!" or "What games did I decline?" Can this information be readily pulled from Horizon?

  5. Allows an Option for Umpire Pay Rates to be driven by level

    In Softball different skill levels of umpire can be paid differently - Not based on Game code or league but based on the umpires qualification.

    So it would be good if you could set the pay rate for an Umpire based on their accreditation level, that could then be over ridden by a league.

    this would safe significant work adjusting game rates
    This would likely require the inclusion of a
    *League payment override umpires Accreditation Payment
    and
    an inclusion of an Accreditation/level element that has a pay rate assigned per level and per position - e.g Plate gets 1 pay…

  6. Association/Coaches Profiles

    Is it possible to create just a link for coaches/association personal with no login required that just shows their game times/dates/location so they can confirm their game is scheduled to have referees

    This way it can be just 1 generic link for each association

    Or omit the phone # requirement when setting up a profile for these people would be a good alternative

    We’ve decided not to incorporate this idea. Allowing coaches to view schedules without login is already an option via the Integrate My Website options & the Public Game Schedule. We’re not currently in favor of reducing our system security and phone number requirements at this time. Thank you for submitting an idea.

  9. MY SCHEDULE

    I love that I can sync / calendar match my schedules... meaning I can make one change in one of my 3 calendars and all the calendars are synced with that new availability.

    Any chance our individual MY SCHEDULE can also reflect that? Meaning, regardless of which groups I am signed in with I can see all of the games I am assigned without having to leave one group to go to another?

  13. Members Directory Privacy

    I deal with many Clients and give them "Association Personnel" rights. I would appreciate the option to not share my Officials personal contact information with them.

    Those Clients have no right to have access to their information and could be legal issues of a third party contact without their consent.

    I request this is looked at with serious thought!

  14. Mass Delete Positions - NEEDS WORK!

    Someone has requested this and Engineer team stated there is an option, which there is not.

    When in "Mass Edit Positions", there is no option to select all, multiple, or individual boxes in order to remove more than one position.

    If there is a way, please share as I have tried all possible ways and can't find how to click more than one position in order to delete...only single positions at a time.

    Thanks

  15. Block the directory from umpires unless assigned with a partner

    We have some guys on our roster that use our directory to search umpires for games outside of our association. I would like to be able to keep them from using the directory to do this unless they are assigned to a game and need to contact their partner.

  17. Allows schedulers to see and assign TBA requests from Master Game Schedule

    We use the TBA system exclusively. Once umpires are assigned to a game, the Master Game Schedule shows the names of the assigned officials and allows us to cancel an assignment if we want by clicking the X box. The TBA system would be easier to use if the MGS displayed the names of all officials who have requested TBA assignments for the games on the schedule. Right now we just see the number of officials who have responded, but if those officials get assigned to other games, the number doesn't go down and so schedulers need to go into…
