  1. Auto Linking feature needs tweaking

    When using the auto link feature, it is making officials unnecessarily move fields. Here is scenario:

    Field A has 3 games at 6:45, 7:45, and 8:45

    Field B at the same complex has 4 games at 6:45, 7:45, 8:45, and 9:45.

    When using the autolink feature, it takes Umpire A and gives them the 3 games on field A and the 9:45 on Field B instead of giving 3 games to umpire A and 4 games to Umpire B.

    It doesn't matter that the complex is the same, the fields are different and the umpire assigned to field B should…

  6. Limits what an Assigner/Administrator can see about me.

    I am a member of two umpiring associations. Based on the FAQ I read about what the Assigner can see about me, he can look at the diagnostics page to see WHY i am unavailable...

    Now, if the two Asscs. get crossways w/ each other, I might be "frozen out" of assignments from one or both of the groups.

    My Concern: I don't see how it is anyone's business WHY I am unavailable, but especially I don't want one organization knowing that I am working for another organization just that I am unavailable for those times.

    Your understanding of the Diagnostics table is incorrect. The Diagnostics table provides assignors with the systemic reason for ineligibility, but ONLY if you said you were available. If you set yourself as available, but the system finds a reason why you should not be eligible, the system will overrule your availability and provide your assignor with diagnostics why it did so. If you simply mark yourself as unavailable on your calendar, the system provides no further details beyond that distinction.

    We’ve decided not to incorporate this. An administrative assistant can currently be handled via our existing permissions structures. At this time, we’re not in favor of changing our existing permission structures. Thank you for submitting an idea!

  8. rankings legend

    When assigning an official, have the ability to see what the rankings stand for.

    When you hover over the ranking, it will pop up a window which shows what the rankings mean. These rankings are number based and it gets confusing what the numbers mean without having a legend opened on your computer.

  9. Manual rankings

    Instead of a number rankings, have the ability to have division rankings.

    e.g. for hockey.

    If an official can Referee up to Peewee Rep and Lines up to Bantam Rep, have to ability to input this and not just a number.

    This functionality already exists via the Game Code block system which allows you to specify which levels an official can or cannot work without using numerical rankings. You can also use Contact Group Restrictions for this too. Manual Rankings are generally intended for organizations that already utilize a numerical hierarchy.

    Unfortunately, this is not something we can do. If your scheduler issues multiple transactions, we are required by financial auditing requirements to process & list each transaction separately and independently. If you’re concerned with receiving multiple transactions, you would need to request your scheduler issue your payments together as a single payment.

  13. Be able to download the public schedule and to be able to filter the public schedule by referee.

    To ease car pooling and as a good feature it would be great to be able to download the public schedule. Another filter that would be by referee could also be of interest. Finally the limit of 100 games in the public view is very limiting as it is less than 1 full week of games.

  14. Contact specific schedulers from the webpage,

    Have on the availability page a form like this one. You type scheduler name on top then put a body. Then it is like a reverse request you request games from here.

  15. API to integrate into GotSoccer

    Currently GotSoccer software allows updates to schedules to automatically update the referee schedule in Arbiter referee assigning software. Wanted to see if there was a potential API we can use for Horizon as well.

    GotSoccer does not have their own public API so there isn’t anything we can do on our end to provide integration options. We do already provide a public API for any external service to connect to our system, but you would need to contact GotSoccer and ask them to utilize our API for integration.

  16. Multiple Calendar Sync

    Is there a way, or could there be one, to sync with multiple calendars? Currently, I sync with my google calendar, but would like to also be able to sync games to my wife's calendar. Thank you.

    Unfortunately, we’ve decided not to incorporate this idea. We feel that it’s very difficult, if not impossible, for users to truly know what their plans are on a daily basis for a date 2 years in the future. Scheduling assignments is still allowed, we just won’t be collecting availability that far out. Thanks for submitting an idea.

  18. In my game schedule, show which officials have accepted a game

    In my personal game schedule it shows all officials allocated to a game whether they have accepted the game or not (whereas the public schedule only shows officials who have accepted).

    I like to know who has accepted the game when they are working with me but when I have a lot of games this isn't easy to do quickly.

    My suggestion is that in the personal game schedule there is some indication that an official has accepted a game or it is still waiting for them to accept. In the interests of saving screen real estate on the page,…

  19. allows assignors to create a fine deduction

    Currently, we can go in to the officials pay and put in a deduction on a certain game. It would be nice if there was a text field beside the deduction to allow the assignor to put in a reason for that deduction, for cases where the deduction is due to a type of fine (ex: late).
