What do we mean by "modified"?
The benefit of the TBA System is so you can provide a system that fairly distributes games and more evenly distributes them to your officials. In a traditional self-assigning system, once you broadcast the games, it is essentially a race among your officials. Whoever gets to the list first, gets to pick the best games. In our TBA System, you can more evenly distribute the games either manually or using the Auto-Assign method and the system will help evenly distribute your games so officials that aren't near a computer or are temporarily busy, don't get left out when games become available to request.
When a scheduler has a set of events that have openings that need to be filled, they can post these events to the TBA Requests section using the Send TBAs option in the top toolbar of their Master Game Schedule. Doing so automatically generates an email to the specified users indicating that there are New TBA Requests Available with a list of the games included in this TBA broadcast. To respond to any of the TBA Requests, officials will need to login. When logged in, there will be an link on the right-hand grey navigation bar labeled "TBA Requests" with a number indicating how many games are currently listed. Selecting this link will display any and all games/events posted by scheduler that have a position available. As always, there are Schedule Filters at the top of the schedule that can organize this list for you. If games display, you may respond to any of the assignments for which you desire and/or are qualified for. You do this by selecting the icon on the far right of the listed game/event which submits your name as an interested candidate. Submitting your request DOES NOT guarantee you will receive the assignment, nor does it automatically give you the assignment. The scheduler will receive a list of names submitted from which they will finalize the assignment allocations at a later time. If you are selected for the assignment, you will receive a separate email/text indicating you have a "Game Confirmation Required".
Allowing Officials to use the TBA System:
If the TBA Requests link is not visible on your right hand grey navigation bar, then the assignments have been filled by the respective scheduler and are no longer available.
