The first thing you need to do is set-up your System Settings and Grade level configuration. First, ensure the Season displayed in the tab is showing the current (2022) season.
Now, click the Settings tab.
Next click on System Settings.
1.Fixtures to display: You can modify your settings to include fixtures where the fixture is being organised/scheduled by your own regions governing body, and/or include fixtures where the fixture is being organised/scheduled by another region's governing body, but the fixture is taking place at a venue owned by your governing body (for example: nationally run competitions, or a team competes in another regions competition for grade/competitive purposes, but play their home games for this competition at their home venue).
2. Default order to display available officials. When you are assigning officials to fixtures, only officials that are of the correct level or higher AND have set themselves as available will appear for selection. With this setting, you can set the order in which the officials that are displayed appear in.
3. Number of historical/upcoming games to display. When you are assigning officials to fixtures, you can view the officials previously assigned games, or upcoming games to ensure they are a correct fit for the fixture. With this setting, you can decide how many fixtures to display (maximum).
4. Time between fixtures. The officials appointment software knows how long each fixture goes for, so an official will appear with a visual indicator when attempting to assign to another fixture that takes place whilst their scheduled fixture is still being played. With this setting, you can add additional stand-down time after the completion of a game, before a referee is scheduled to official another fixture.
5. Period between team's fixtures. If a value is set here, a visual indicator will display when assigning an official to a fixture if the team has not played that number of fixtures before assigning the same official again.
