Assign

To assign referees to a game, just click the Assign link on the right-side of the game row.

You will see a drop-down menu for each position to be assigned. Next to each name, you will see one of several codes that checks for conflicts. The letters represent conflicts, or potential reasons why a referee should not be assigned to a game:

  • *OK*: no conflicts
  • D: (D)ate conflict (not available)
  • E: working (E)lsewhere
  • T: (T)eam conflict
  • O: conflict with (O)ther official
  • A: (A)bility conflict
  • L: (L)eague conflict
  • V: (V)enue conflict
  • X: E(X)ternal conflict (referee is working a game with another linked assignr.com account.)
  • C: Game (C)ounts (exceeded the maximum number of allowed assignments for the day/week/month)

If the referee has requested the assignment, you will see the letters [RQ] next to the name.

The currently assigned referee will be marked with an arrow (=>) next to the name.
