    Would be great to be able to search games by the time / date entered into the platform.

  2. Allow assignors to send out TBA when official sends Turnback Request

    Currently we do not allow officials to send out TBA as we cannot control who gets the game - result could be an unqualified official. We do allow Turnback Requests but when the request comes in currently, we have to delete that official if we wish to send out a TBA Request. Would be great if a TBA Request could be sent out when an official sends in a Turnback Request. This way the official is still assigned to the game until someone responds to the TBA Request and the Assignor reassigns the game. Could go one step further and…

  3. Automatically give a TBA to first response

    When requesting a game from another official on the TBA board, it should be on a first come, first serve basis. Instead of having the official trading the game decide who gets it and have to confirm, the game should automatically appear on that official's schedule, the moment he requests it. This would eliminate any bias as to who does games, and simplify the whole process.

  4. 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…

  5. Re-use Game Numbers from cancelled games

    When cancelled games get rescheduled the system should allow for the same game number to be used. Currently, when I go to reschedule a game, i can't use the same game number yet thats what the league sends me as a game number. Would be cool if the system could automatically put an extension on the cancelled game to show it cancelled and allow the new game to go in as the same game number. That would also allow for easy tracking of which games were reschedules.

  7. 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.

  8. Reason/Comment accompanying Unassigning an official

    It would be nice (and maybe an easy change request?) to give the Assignor a pop-up that allows him/her to write text of why they are un-assigning a game from an official, when they un-assign someone. This would prevent separate emails or texts/etc, having to be sent. This would be similar to an official giving a Reason when he/she declines/turns back a game

  9. Game Breakdown on Assign a game via Master Game Schedule,

    Our association uses members in multiple functions and have multiple assignors.

    Assignors have requested when consulting master game schedule page, then assign a game :

    When scrolling over fields PRIOR GAMES & GAMES (giving total game count) a little window that pops up with more detailed break-down.

    For example :

    8 - Timekeeper
    6 - Referee
    2 - Supervisor

    (You can already do a game comparison via the availability page, but it means having to jump back and forth constantly to verify which people have worked what, when trying to equalize game counts).

  10. Distinguish between "game added" and "game rescheduled" in emails

    When a game is canceled then rescheduled, an email goes out saying a game was "added." This creates mass confusion!

  11. Minimum rest time after set of games

    Settings can be altered to identify when officials are available to officiate after assignments. If an official is set to become available immediately after an assignment, that official can be scheduled at another venue. If the settings are changed to allow for a minimum time period after the assignment, that official is now not available for linked assignments based on the time period identified.

    Would it be possible to modify the filter to have the official become available based on the assignment?

    For example, an official skating hockey in the Ontario Minor Hockey Association must have three hours rest after…

  13. 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.

  14. Allow different Address than Home to be used for mileage

    Some officials attend college, and have a different local address than their mailing address. If the user can specify a different address than their home address to be used for mileage it would be helpful.

    This address could be the work address or a different local address.

    An alternative would be to expose the mileage calculations via the API and allow it to be overridden.

  17. Interval Game Scheduler

    We schedule 3,000 + games per year. When I add recurring games, I have to add a recurring game for the same field on the same night 4 different times for start times 6:15, 7:15, 8:15, 9:15 for example. It would be easier for us to just select that field and be able to say there are 4 games with 1 hour intervals starting at 6:15 and then have that apply to the date range we have selected. It would reduce my time entering games by 75%. I know this would be a bit more complicated to program though!

  18. 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.
