Now, click the Settings tab.
Next click on System Settings.
1. Default order to display available referees. When you are assigning referees to fixtures, only referees 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 referees that are displayed appear in.
2. Number of historical/upcoming games to display. When you are assigning referees to fixtures, you can view the referee's 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).
3. Time between fixtures. The referee appointment software knows how long each fixture goes for, so a referee 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 referee another fixture.
4. Period between team's fixtures. If a value is set here, a visual indicator will display when assigning a referee to a fixture if the team has not played that number of fixtures before assigning the same referee again.
