  1. Allow to Sort TBA by Location

    Currently the TBA's are sorted by Time only, which makes seeing sets at the same rink very difficult to see. It would be really useful if TBA's were sorted the same as in the Assignor view (Rink, then Time and Date)

  3. Don't allow officials to give games to unqualified officials using the TBA System.

    At this time, any official can request any game from another official using the TBA system, even if they aren't rated. This causes the assignors to constantly be monitoring the alerts. Is there a way to have it as a preference if the organization does not want unqualified officials to be able to request those games? It is good for them to see the games if they are in a set, but not be able to 'grab' them.

  5. Customize game report fields

    Allow league/assignors to customize fields to be filled out in a required game report. The base report is overly complex, where most reports can get by with a simple score, team names, and field conditions.

  7. 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.

  8. Hide score in the master schedule if not submitted

    After an official submits a game report, the score shows up on the master schedule... unless the scosre is 0 to 0, then it APPEARS as though no one submitted a game report! How about if you make it so that 0 to 0 scores show up on the master schedule as 0 to 0 once a game report is filed. Thank

  9. Create Contact Groups based on distance

    Allow you to create a contact group of all officials within a certain regional area, maybe by selecting off the map.

    I assign as part of a national association and only want to reach my officials in a small area. Instead of going thru the thousands of people one by one it would be much easier to put up the map or sort by distance to select my officials for my group.

  11. On your Incident reports. Please put a drop down that gives a choice between 'CAUTION" (or yellow) and "disqualification" (or red) card.

    On your Incident reports. Please put a drop down that gives a choice between 'CAUTION" (or yellow) and "disqualification" (or red) card. That way when I get an incident report I don't have to research whether it is a red or yellow. It would be helpful.

  13. flat rate mileage based on location

    Allow for mileage to be paid strictly based on the location of the game. Park A pays $10, Park B pays $12, etc. We don't care where the official is coming from, mileage is paid based on where the game is.

  15. Expand Manual Game ID Length to 12 Characters

    Hello,

    The game import is an important feature to bring games in from associations. The Game ID field is limited to 8 characters however some of the games being imported have up to 12 characters due to the association settings.

    Would it be possible to change the field length from 8 to 12? This will greatly assist with game updates as they come in. They can be updated en masse rather than one by one.

  16. Track TBAs posted by schedulers

    Track the number of TBAs issued by scheduler.
    How many TBAs they are posting and how many days in advance those TBAs are being posted. This would be helpful in grading assignors/schedulers.

    This would track games being posted rather than being accepted

  17. Turnback requests applied to all linked games

    Can you make the turnback request applicable to all linked games, so official doesn't have to do multiple turnbacks. It would be one request per linked games

  18. Keep the navigation menu visible while scrolling

    Freeze the shortcuts on the right side of the screen. So, that when you scroll down thru lists on the left you don't have to scroll back up to get to those shortcuts.

  19. Allow arena preferences to be Preferred or Acceptable

    Allow arena preferences to be Preferred or Acceptable, rather than active or blocked for assigning purposes.

    By having the ability to split your arenas into the arenas that you prefer to go to, and which are acceptable to go to, this would allow for the administrators/assignors/payroll people, to add mileage to officials where an arena is acceptable. For example, if I am willing to travel to an arena that is 50 KM away from my home, I would list it as acceptable and could be assigned there if needed... I wouldn't want to be assigned there on a permanent basis,…

  20. Allow only certain Game Types or Leagues to be TBA'd

    We currently have three assignors and need a way for only one assignor's game types to be TBA'd by officials. Please correct me if I'm wrong as I believe the TBA system is either all on or all off.
