  1. Streamline the open event application process

    When an event requiring officials is posted to the site, send an email to the officials with a button they can click to add them to the applicant list (instead of the official having to manually find the event in the job board and click the Apply button).

    • Have the ability to discern Varsity level contests vs sub-varsity

      Color code V vs sub-varsity bookings/schedule on the calendar so assigners can see sub-varsity contests. This will provide them the ability to contact or contract for V contests and the officials can get subs for their sub-varsity contests. Right now all is either blocked (black) or contracted with no way other than opening the date to see the contest. I would suggest all V contracts be one color (lets say red) and all sub-varsity contests be another color (blue).

      • We Need to as coaches be able to blacklist officials

        We need to be able to blacklist officials from our games who we have had negative experiences with. We need Athletixus to have a feature that won't allow blacklisted officials to be assigned to our games.

          • Send an email to coaches to rank officials following the event.

            We can print cards off to remind coaches to rank officials (via Refranking) but it would increase rankings if coaches got an email that they have officials that need to be ranked.

            • create a Tax Information Section

              Every School requires us to complete a W9. it is much less secure to leave a signed W9 at an athletic event or mailing a form through the US Postal Service than it is to have tax information in a section accessible by the athletic director only. Would it be possible to have a section that is fully encrypted that would allow the official to update the personal tax info online and to allow the AD to get the info from this same site?

              • Allow an Official to enter a message to the Assignor when Declining a Contract

                When I decline a contract, I'd like to be able to tell the Assignor why I'm declining the Contract. Right now, I have to send him a separate email which makes me leave Athletix. I'd rather do everything all within Athletix. The Assignor would see my custom message in the Declined email he receives.

                • automatically adding an event when accepting a contract through rschool.

                  A lot of schools and commissioners use rschool for sending contracts

                  • Have a selection box to make a softball or baseball game a double header so that officials only have to enter the information once

                    In the Enter New, have a selection for a double header so that the official only has to enter the information once, and then select DH and it would add two games to the event schedule, or allow WIAA to record this as TWO games. since number of games is a requirement for advancement.

                      We will look into the idea of creating two events from a user entering it only once. From a WIAA perspective, a double header is two games, so there should be an event created for each game. The only thing that will be different is the time.

                    • Warn me when I'm creating a game late at night or early morning

                      I'd like Athletix to give me a warning when I'm going to save a game with the time either late at night (start time is after 9 PM) or early in the morning (start time is before 8 AM). I think that would help Officials make sure their calendar is up to date.

                        When I go to print my schedule or my events to assign, can you make it so it fits nicely on one page? Some of the text in the far right column was cut off when I printed it.

                              As an Athletic Director, I want to create a contract for a proposed Event between two or more Organizations (at potentially more than on Level of Competition) and send it to the Organization's Manager. If they accept the contract, the Event(s) would be added to each Organization and Team's calendars.

                                      • Infer times from abbreviations more accurately

                                        When typing in a time, the meaning of some abbreviations is inferred correctly, whereas others are not. For instance, "4pm" works, but "4p" gets converted to "4:00 am".

                                        As an example of best practice, play with Microsoft Outlook. For all its fatness and slowness, it absolutely nailed date and time inputs (and did so a decade ago). Unfortunately many JavaScript controls haven't caught up. Hopefully some have, because these details make a big usability difference.

                                        Note that this suggestion is related to but different than the "use a time select controller when creating events". I think a time picker would…

                                        • Only Show Open Assignments for Days that I am Open

                                          On the view open assignments it would be nice if there was an indication on each game of whether I am available on that date. Perhaps a coloring of the row or a new column with an indicator in it or have the [Apply] button say something a little different, and/or maybe have the dialog that pops up when I [Apply] warn me that I already have something on that day. As it is now – I have to keep my calendar open in another window and go back and forth to check.

                                          This one is trivial but… It might…
