  1. Sign Up

    When Referees Sign up, It sure would make it easier if all the ESSENTIAL information was on ONE SINGLE TAB, while all the optional information was on different tabs. That way users won't have to navigate to different tabs. I know you have arrows... but once you click on a tab, you have to remember the line item that is required... it makes for a clunky sign up.

  4. TBA Requests

    We have multiple assignors for the different positions. Ex: we have a referee assignor and a timkeeper assignor. It would be great if each assignor could submit their own TBA Requests. Currently, only one assignor can send out one TBA per game at a time. Which means TK's or Refs see TBA requests coming from someone who is not their regular assignor. Another option would be for assignors to ADD to the TBA Request rather than retracting and doing the TBA Request again.

  5. Enhance the Game data

    I would like to be able to have a notes section or some sort of Division so that I can choose which division a team is in.

    I have Men, Coed, and Womens all of whom have a Division 1, 2, etc. A notes section would be great. That way I could put division in teh notes or perhaps let the umpire know that this is a play in game and a winner is needed.

  6. Allow Future Games to be set as default

    On the game schedule allow Furure games to be set as the user default - I suspect most officals only rarely look at past games and it would be more useful to have Future games be the default setting...

  7. Unaccepted Games Email Notifications

    In the email that users get that they have games waiting to be accepted, can the username of the user or email of the user be displayed in the email so that we know who this email is for? I am a parent of timekeepers, as well as I am a referee, and I see the emails of my kids, and when I see a generic email notification for unaccepted games waiting to be accepted, I don't know who it is for, so all 3 of us check horizon.

  9. Allow me to change availabilty after accepting games

    As of now if you are assigned a game, you can not change your availability. This makes it difficult for the assignor when they are making last minute changes. For example:

    Assignor assigns referee 1 games at 10AM and 12PM, 2 weeks ahead of the game. A few days later referee 1 decides to make plans for a cookout at 3 PM the day of the games. Referee 1 should be able to block out everything after their last game so that the assignor doesn't throw a 3rd game their way when referee 2 gets sick.

    As of now. The…

  11. Put the Home team and the field location directly next to each other in the game view.

    In the game view, make the list read Visiting team, Home team, Field location. With the field location following Visitor in the current format it can be rather confusing as to the exact location when reading the info in a hurry.

  12. Schedule Declines

    When a referee declines a match, allow an option that can change the referees availability calendar to not available - so I don't have to remember who declined what day or a time during that day.

  13. can allow an administrator to text message all umpires that are scheduled for that day

    This would be beneficial to help during rainouts or delays of game due to weather.

  14. TBA Email Notifications

    Email notifications are missing a critical piece of information, IMHO. Is it possible to add into the gray section at the bottom of the notification email what the role is that one is trying to fill? This would be either the referee, or linesman role for the game in question that is being put up TBA.

    All the other information in the email notification is great.

    Current fields at the bottom of the email are:
    Sent:
    Sent by (Name):
    Sent by (Email):
    Sent to:

    Thank you.

  15. Allow "guest referees" from other associations to be added to a game like a TBA, or allow "guest associations" to be added so I can pay them

    Allow "guest referees" from other associations to be added to a game like a TBA, or allow "guest associations" to be added to the game or take one two or three positions of the game, so I can have a record of the game and pay the association my fees.

  16. Availability overview

    It would be great if I could schedule right from the availability overview. I can see all available referees on the overview, click on the available date, and it would be nice if a list of available games popped up so I could assign the official right there

    Unfortunately, this is something we don’t intend to add at this time. Availability is only 1 of over 30 factors used by the system to determine eligibility so scheduling from the Availability Overview gives a false sense of accuracy. We intend to leave scheduling operations strictly on the Master Game Schedule page. Thanks for submitting an idea!

  17. When you change search parameters, it should default to last date entered

    Why do I have to always change the search end date that defaults to the same day, when I want to search? And how come once i change the end date, it does not remember/save it? Thanks.

  18. allows you to turn off the "pop-up help window."

    I can fairly easily now navigate around the site and don't need the pop-up help window to tell me what each of the features on the site are for. thank you.

    We’ve decided not to incorporate this at this time. With a system as large as ours, it can take quite a while for users to reach every area we have to offer. Our inline help options provide instruction and guidance on the system and many users reach certain instructional items many years after they’ve been a user. Although we’re not in favor of this request, we’ll continue to evaluate the best ways to educate users on our system to improve our educational tools.

  19. Ratings

    The word "publish" in coaches ratings indicates to them that officials will be able to view rating which is not the case only the coordinator can view. Can "publish" be changed to "viewable by Officiating Coordinator only" and provide option to not have ratings be anonymous in the tool?

  20. Need to create a placeholder or Guest Official

    This guest official should be created so if an official is being used to help out for a tournament from outside your association, officials can see they will have a partner and that the proper number of official assignments can be billed automatically to the league without having to manually track and modify the invoice to the tournament.
