As an officiating organization administrator or scheduler, you may wonder whether you can manually mark games as paid within our system. We'd like to provide you with the necessary information about this process to ensure you understand.
Schedulers and Administrators
We want to clarify that officiating organization administrators and schedulers cannot manually mark games as paid within our system. Our payment marking system operates exclusively through our Horizon Payment Center service, which facilitates electronic payments via ACH direct deposit through our trusted third-party financial provider. This automated service ensures that games are marked as paid for both schedulers and the referees and umpires receiving the payments. If you issue a manual payment outside of the system, like via a check or some other electronic payment method, you cannot mark these items as paid in the software.
Referees and Umpires
On the other hand, referees and umpires can mark games as "paid" for any games not paid using the Horizon Payment Center. This feature allows them to track which games they have received payment for. After a game has been completed, referees and umpires can select the orange $ symbol on their schedule, which will then change to a green $ symbol. This serves as a simple tracking method for officials to keep a record of the games they have received payment for. This option is only available for games in the past.
It is essential to note that the ability to mark games as paid is exclusively available to referees and umpires for personal tracking purposes. This feature is not designed for schedulers and administrators to mark games for which they have sent payments. Automated marking of games as paid occurs solely through the Horizon Payment Center service.
While referees and umpires have the option to mark games as paid to track their own payments, schedulers and administrators do not possess the ability to mark games as paid within our system manually. Our Horizon Payment Center service ensures the automated marking of games as paid for both schedulers and officials, while the tracking feature for referees and umpires aids in their personal payment management. We hope this clarification helps you understand payment processes within our system, and we hope you'll be able to foster a smooth experience for everyone.
