  1. Assign a crew instead of individual officials

    We work in set crews with 5 officials assigned to specific positions. It would be greatly beneficial for us if we could create those crews and then just assign the Referee and have the rest of the crew auto fill. If someone is unavailable for that game, this functionality should leave that position empty for the assignor to fill in the blanks.

  2. Automatically block officials from working when "My (Their) Team" is playing.

    Allow another feature where umpires select the team(s) they play in which automatically makes them unavailable for the times they are playing

  3. Allow game counters from past years

    Allow the game counters to be viewed from past seasons. It would be useful to see how many games an official did from season to season. It would also be nice to see how many games an official declined, turned back, etc. each year and be able to retrieve that information from past years.

  4. Allows official to only accept or decline all games linked.

    Presently an official can accept two of the 3 games in a link and decline the 3rd. This causes the assignor multiple phone calls to correct this problem.

  5. Don't allow officials to respond to TBA requests when they are scheduled in a game at the same time

    The TBA system currently allows officials to respond to TBAs even when they are scheduled in another game at the same time. They don't come up on the assigning screen, but it is misleading to the official requesting the assignment.

  6. contact crew by SMS

    currently I can contact the game crew by email, but I would like the option to do this by SMS. Most communication between officials is by text - especially if it is close to game time. Young referees don't check their email regularly - I need to contact them by text.

  7. Prefix and Suffix on Game Number

    Ability to put a prefix and suffix on game code to be able to more easily determine where the game came from. With over 3000 games a year it can get confusing.

    If a pre/suffix isn't possible, can you make the game number more than 8 characters to accomodate this feature? I could put it in the game number to help out.

  8. Rotate Positions for umpires on linked games automatically

    would like to see a feature added where the Plate umpire and Base Umpire automatically is rotated on link games when you assign them games

  9. allows an assignor or administrator to mark games paid even if not using the built in pay system

    It would be useful to show what has been paid to officials when using other methods to make payment

  10. recurring meeting

    I would like to have the option to add a recurring meeting, similar to the recurring game. We have a general meeting every week during the season and I'd like to be able to add a weekly meeting.

  11. Send a unique email when a game is edited (changed)

    Today, when a game is edited (date, time, or field), the assigned officials get a message that makes it appear they have received a new game. Then, some officials wonder what happened to the other game, the one that disappeared. Its the same game, only its at a new date or time. It is confusing for officials.
    My idea is when a game is changed, send the assigned officials a message: Game #12345 has been changed. The date or time or field has been updated. You must re-accept the game.

  12. Auto Decline Feature Per Game

    Allow the auto decline feature to work on a single game rather then system wide. When assigning a game, have a field to populate a date for each individual game. Some games I want them to respond to sooner then other games.

  13. View Games on a calendar

    I suggest that one of the views you should make is a calendar view, so it would be easier to see just how many games we have scheduled for a single day... much easier to view and ask AD's to make adjustments to their games.

  14. Notify Assignor of TBA Swap from Official to Official

    With 50+ Games a day, it is tough to keep track of all your officials and if they actually got someone to take their games. Can we get a notification system that email / text messages the assignor to let us know "X" official sent "X" assignment(s) on "X" date to "Y" official? This would be extremely helpful to have and allow us to quickly view the assignment to make sure pay-rates and whatever is good!

    Thank you

  15. shows the history of when people update their availability

    Be able to see what date people updated their availability on. We have an issue where we schedule tournaments for a weekend and then after it's done, we get officials wondering why they didn't get assignment and their availability shows them free. It would be nice to know if they switched their availability after the scheduling was done.

  16. Travel Distance Restrictions

    I want to be able to restrict the distance I'm willing to travel from a given zip code for each day of the week. For example, I can't accept games until after 5pm M-F due to my day job which is easy enough to set up in my "Availability", but I would also like to restrict any games I'm assigned to within 5 miles of my job.

  17. Sort assigning window by "Prior Game"

    When assigning, allowing to sort by Prior game will ensure that officials are working on a more regular basis

  18. Time between seeing the same team

    Allow assignors to set a minimum number of days between reffing the same team. Right now, if a team plays three home games in a week, the system would show the same official available for all three. I would like a switch, which was in our old system, to allow us to set a number of days for officials between seeing the same team. For instance, if an official was put in on the 1st of the month to officiate a team, and the number of days between games was 14, he wouldn't show up on the availability for that…

  19. Sort TBA by referee position

    In our association, we have 3 referee positions for each game (Referee, Assistant 1, Assistant 2). Often, when sending out TBAs, most officials only want to officiate as a referee, but there are still some officials who want to be assistants.

    A feature to sort TBAs by referee position would be helpful, so that officials don't need to click into each match to see what positions are available. Most of our matches have referees assigned, but there are always a few spots, and searching through the whole list of sometimes in excess of 100 matches is quite tedious. Thank you!

  20. allow game notes to be posted under the game edit feature

    Place the game notes section in the game edit area. This way you can add notes detailing reasons for any changes made to a particular game rather than having to make the change, close the game editor, and open the notes feature.
