Determining if an official is ready or not to be scheduled

Updated over a week ago

The officials' "Readiness" status allows administrators to determine whether a user can receive assignments. By default, all officials are deemed Ready, but officiating organization administrators can switch a user to Not Ready if they want to temporarily or permanently block them from receiving any assignments. An official that is Not Ready will be unable to be scheduled to any games, will be unable to edit their Availability Calendar, and will not receive TBA Requests.

Use Cases for Not Ready Status

Toggling the readiness status can be used for several purposes. For example:

  • Officials that are not actively working games, but the officiating organization wants to keep them in their subscription for communication and tracking purposes.

  • Officials who have not met registration requirements and must complete additional steps before they can receive assignments.

  • Officials that have been temporarily suspended

  • Officials who want to stay in the organization but want to opt out of receiving games for the moment.

How to Set Readiness Status

By default, all officials are set to the Ready status. However, officiating organization Administrators may edit the Readiness Status of an official by editing their permissions from the Members Directory page. The status can be updated by editing an individual user with the edit pencil or using the Change Readiness Status sub-menu option under the Delete Users top toolbar menu option.

Viewing Current Status

The status of each user can be viewed by officiating organization administrators using the Login Records option in the top toolbar of the Members Directory or by Exporting the Members Directory to a spreadsheet.

Consequences of a Not Ready Status

Officials set to a "Not Ready" status by their officiating organization administrator cannot be scheduled to games or submit availability. Officials will see an "Account Disabled" error message when attempting to access the software's Game Schedule, Public Schedule, TBA Requests, or Availability Calendar pages, and they will not be able to access these areas of the software while their account is set to "Not Ready." This error message will indicate that their officiating organization's scheduler has disabled their account.

Officials must contact their local officiating organization's administrator to inquire why their account has been set to a "Not Ready" status and ask to be set to a regular "Ready" status. Officiating organizations often use the "Not Ready" status to indicate that officials have not met specific requirements or requisites that the officiating organization has before they can be scheduled for games, so officials should work with their local officiating organization to identify what requirements or prerequisites the official must perform if any.
