How do I set my availability and
other constraints?

 
From your account you can set dates and times you are
unavailable, select teams for which you prefer not to
officiate, set the sites you prefer not to visit,

choose postal codes to which you prefer not to travel,
select partners with whom you prefer not to officiate, and a general
travel limit you prefer to stay within.  Generally, assignors will not
assign you to games that conflict with your settings without contacting you
first.

Block Dates
The Block Dates procedure is found by
clicking the BLOCK DATES AND TIMES link on the Start Page.  This
screen will display a calendar of the current
month.  You may move to future months by clicking the next month�s name
located to the right of the current month or move back a month
in similar fashion.  This procedure only

allows you to set dates and times you are
NOT available.  This is done by first setting the time you
are unavailable using the Start Time and Ending Time
fields.  Check the ALL DAY box if you want to block entire days. 
Next, click the day on the calendar to which you want to apply the unavailable
time.  The time for which you have blocked that day will
then display beneath the calendar.  Continue clicking additional days to
which you want to apply the same blocked times.  Adjust the times for
blocking days with different availabilities.  The dates

will then become blue if applying a partial-day block or red if applying an
all-day block.  If you work every day, you may want to
enter a block of 12:00am to 5:00pm (or whatever time you are actually able to
leave work, please do not attempt to incorporate travel time as the Arbiter.NET
already includes this) and then click every Mon-Fri day of the season.
 
A day can have more than one blocked
time.  For instance, an official may set blocks from 8:00am to 12:00pm and
from 7:00pm to 11:00pm which would still allow the official to work an
afternoon game between 12:00pm to 7:00pm. To do this, set the first blocked
time (8:00am to 12:00pm) as instructed above.  Then change the Start Time
and Finish Time to reflect the second block (7:00pm to 11:00pm) and click the
BLOCK button.  Both blocks for the highlighted day will then be displayed
beneath the calendar.
 

To change a blocked date simply delete the
existing block (see below) and then add the correct block.
 
Deleting Blocked Dates
Click on the date that is currently blocked to display the
block details beneath the calendar.  Click the
trash can icon to remove the block.
 

Block Teams
The Block Teams procedure
is found by clicking the BLOCK TEAMS link on the Start Page. 
Please note that some organizations do not allow this feature (or limit the
number of teams that can be blocked).  From this screen you may select
teams for which you prefer not to officiate.  This
differs from blocking a site in that you can block a specific team (a school's
girls varsity as opposed to their boys JV for instance) both home and
away.  Blocking a site blocks you from all that school's teams but only at
home.  If your organization does not allow officials to block
teams your button
will not be visible.  To block yourself from officiating for a team click
the button. 
Select the team you wish to block from the pull-down that appears.  The
pull-down displays the Team Name,
Sport, and Level.  Be sure to select the correct team.  For instance,
Alta Football Varsity is a different team than Alta Football JV (Alta�s Varsity
football team as opposed to their JV football team).  You may also
determine whether you should only be blocked from their home games or also
their away games by checking the boxes for which you do wish to be
blocked.  Click the green checkmark once all
information is complete.  Click DONE when all appropriate
teams have been blocked.

 
Deleting Blocked Teams
Click the trash can
icon next to the blocked team to be deleted.
 
 
Block Sites

The Block Sites procedure
is found by clicking the BLOCK SITES link on the Start Page. 
Please note that some organizations do not allow this feature (or limit the
number of sites that can be blocked).  If your organization does not allow
officials to block sites your
button will not be visible.  Blocking a site means that you will not
travel to that site (except possibly under special circumstances).  To
block yourself from traveling to a site click the

button.  Select the site you wish to block from the pull-down that appears
and then click the green checkmark.  Click DONE
when all appropriate sites have been blocked.
 
Deleting Blocked Sites
Click the trash can

icon next to the blocked site to be deleted.
 
 
Block Postals
The Block Postal Codes procedure

is found by clicking the BLOCK POSTAL CODES link on the Start Page. 
Please note that some organizations do not allow this feature (or limit the
number of postal codes that can be blocked).  If your organization does
not allow officials to block sites your
button will not be visible.  Blocking a postal code means that you will
not travel to a site located within that postal code (except possibly under
special circumstances).  To block yourself from traveling to a postal code
click the button. 
Select the postal code you wish to block from the pull-down that appears

and then click the green checkmark.  Click DONE
when all appropriate postal codes have been blocked.
 
Deleting Blocked Postals
Click the trash can
icon next to the blocked Postal to be deleted.

 
 
Block Partners
The Block Partners procedure
is found by clicking the BLOCK PARTNERS link on the Start Page. 
Please note that some organizations do not allow this feature (or limit the
number of partners that can be blocked).  If your organization does not
allow officials to block partners your

button will not be visible.  Blocking a partner means that you do not want
to work with that official.  To block yourself from working
with another official click the
button.  Select the official you wish to block from the pull-down that
appears and then click the green checkmark. 

Click DONE when all appropriate partners have been blocked.
 
Deleting Blocked Partners
Click the trash can
icon next to the blocked partner to be deleted.
 

 
Travel Limits
The Travel Limits procedure is located under the CONSTRAINTS
pull-down.  Please note that some organizations do not allow this
feature.  If your organization does not allow officials to limit the
distance they are willing to travel your EDIT button will not be visible. 
By default, the postal code shown

on your personal information screen will be selected
for each day of the week and will have a travel limit of 999. 
This means that your travel distance will be calculated from this postal
code.  However, if on any day of the week you leave for game
assignments from a postal code different than your home postal code, you will
want to change it.  This is done by clicking the EDIT button for that day
of the week.  Use the pull-down to select the postal code from which you
will be leaving for game assignments that day of the week.  If the postal
code you leave from is not on the list, notify your assignor and

they can make it available.  At this time you may also change the
travel limit by deleting the existing 999 and entering the number of miles you
are willing to travel on that day of the week.  Click the SAVE button once
all information is complete.
 
 
How do I view my schedule?
 

Your schedule can be viewed by clicking the
MY GAME SCHEDULE link from the Start Page.  However, you are not
officially assigned to the game until you ACCEPT the game.
 
 
How do I accept/decline games on my
schedule?

 
Games can be accepted or declined by checking the
appropriate box for each game on your schedule and then clicking

SUBMIT.  Games must be accepted by the date
posted in the far-right column.  If the games have not been accepted (or
declined) by this date they will automatically be removed.  Be
aware that once you have accepted a game you can no longer decline the game
from your account, but must contact the assigner
to turn the game back.  Similarly, once a game has been declined
it is removed from your schedule and you can no longer accept the game without
contacting your assigner.  Once
game has been accepted you can click on the game number of any game for further
details regarding the game (including partners when allowed).  Also, the
site for each game can be clicked on to produce a map of the location.

 
 
How do I print my schedule?
 
A schedule of your game assignments can be printed by
clicking the printer icon
on the game schedule screen..  Select the date range of games the
schedule should include (Click the

button to display a calendar to assist in selecting the date range. 
Simply click two dates on the calendar).  Next,
select the format you would like the schedule to print in. 
Current formats include Adobe Acrobat Format (*.pdf), Microsoft Excel
Sheet (*.xls), and Microsoft Word Document (*.doc).  Please note that you
must have Adobe Acrobat installed in order to display or print your schedule in
this format.  If you do not have Adobe Acrobat installed
click the GET ACROBAT LINK provided.  Similarly, Microsoft Excel
or Microsoft Word needs to be installed to display your schedule in those
formats.  Click the OK button once all
information is complete.  Your schedule will display in
whatever format you selected.  Use the print option from this formatted
report to print a hard copy.

 
 
How do I change my personal information
(including PIN)?

 
Your personal information can be found under HOME/PERSONAL
INFO.  From this screen all personal information can be edited. 
Click the SAVE button once all information is complete.  Click the phone
icon to edit your phone numbers.  To add a new phone number, click the ADD
button.  This will display a new window below the existing phone
numbers.  Select the Phone Type for the number you will be entering. 
Enter the phone number and any necessary extension.  A small note field is
available if necessary (such as SPOUSE WILL GENERALLY ANSWER or USE AS LAST
RESORT ONLY).  These notes are for your assigner to view only.  Check
the printable field if this phone number is a number you want made available to
other officials and schools.  Otherwise, the phone number can only be
viewed by your assigner.  Click the SAVE button once all information is
complete.
