  1. Searching schedule by date added/entered

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

  2. Copy Location to create another similar one

    From list of fields, have a Copy / Duplicate option so it creates a new Location with the same parameters but a slightly different name so most of the contents are already entered.

  3. Need the Ability to Create Lists other then Members

    It would be helpful to have the ability to create and save lists for Leagues, Game Codes, Ice Rinks, etc. This would be useful when searching in the Master Schedule and only needing to see for example youth games instead of having to select all the youth leagues every time you need to perform the search. Our association has more then one scheduler and they each schedule different level of games. This would make it easier for each scheduler to see only the games that they are responsible for.

  4. Google Calendar Sync doesn't sync changes automatically when game information changes

    Any game change made should be synced when the member has Google Calendar Sync enabled. The system knows there has been a change that was made, trigger the sync mechanism.

  5. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. Follow up to a rating

    It would be nice to see a way to follow up to a rating because I had a situation where a coach had given some false information and there was no way to follow up with the rating. Or a way to rate coaches.

  10. Select Email Notifications

    It would be nice for officials to be able to select when they receive notifications and what they are receiving them for. Games added and Game day reminders should be default, but I would suggest that other emails, such as the three days out reminder, game changes that don't require immediate attention, etc could be options chosen by the user.

    Also, like in the text messaging, I would like to see an option allowing the user to decide what time of day the assignments come in.

  11. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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).

  16. no official change notification until new official has accepted

    Wait to notify officials of a change in their crew until the new official added has accepted the game. Right now if we assign an official, the game crew gets a notification even before that official has accepted the game. If he declines the game, the crew gets another change notification when we assign a new official. Too many emails confuses people. It would be best to not send out a change in crew until the game has been accepted by the new official.

  17. TBA Emails Opt IN/OPT Out

    My officials find that the high number of emails during the season are an annoyance. It would be nice if the officials could opt out to receive the emails from TBA requests from their fellow officials, however, still simply view the games on the TBA board.

  20. Customize Information that is Synced to Google Calendar

    I would like to expand upon the limited ability to customize how an assignment appears when synced to Google Calendar.

    As it stands now, we can give a generic name that populates to the Event Title, and not much else. The event description has all the other details of the assignment, but it may not be presented in a manner that best fits my needs.

    What I'd like to see, is the ability to fully customize how that assignment appears in my calendar; not only the title, but the description/details as well. Let me choose what information is provided, and…
