    Blocking Your Availability When Your Team is Playing

    • In Arbiter, identifying yourself to a team and its schedule is called “attaching.”

    • “Attaching” will automatically exclude you from being considered for assignments whenever the team plays in Virginia or DC. (Arbiter has no visibility of games played in Maryland.)

    • From the Start Page, click on “Attach” on the left side under “Schedule.”

    • On the “Add Attachments” screen:

      • Click on “Level” and select appropriate age and division

      • Click on “Team” and select the team.

    • If you DO wish to be considered for assignments during a blocked attached date, contact us.

    • Blocking Dates

    • Accepting Assignments

      In this section you will:

    • Enable your account to receive assignments.

    • Accept and decline assignments

    • Review your schedule


    Slide21 l.jpg

    • When you finish updating your personal information, return to the Start Page.

    • IMPORTANT. Look under Settings. Make sure the box “Ready” is checked. If it is not checked, check it.

      • Once this block is checked, you are “activated” and we are ready to start discussing assignments with you.

      • You will now have the ability to fully access your schedule and block and unblock your availability.


    Slide22 l.jpg

    • When we assign games, Arbiter sends an email – not with the assignments but with a notice for you to check with Arbiter because there is something new.

    • Arbiter also sends you an email with a notice that there is a change to your games and you need to check your account.

    • Your new or changed game will look like this slide:

      • You need to accept or decline the assignments. If you fail to do this by the prescribed date, you are not assigned to the games.

      • If you have any questions or concerns about the assignments, call us – we are always available to talk.

      • If you have sent us an Availability Sheet and we have made assignments based on that information, which you then decline, we would appreciate a call or email explaining why these games are not suitable.


    Slide23 l.jpg

    • Be sure to click “Submit” when you are done.

      • If you click “Done” instead, you will return to the previous screen with no changes to your schedule!

    • Once you click “Submit” you can no longer edit the status of any game that you accept or decline.

      • After you press “Submit,” you must contact the assignor to change the status of any game that you have accepted or declined.

    • When you click “Submit,” the accepted games displays the date it was accepted


    Slide24 l.jpg

    • Look at the “Notes.” icon:

      • If the “Notes” icon is Green, there is a note from us about the game, i.e. assessment game, special game, etc.

      • If the “Notes” icon is red then there is no note.

      • You may also write a note to us – however, email or telephone is a more efficient way to get our attention, considering the hundreds of games we are dealing with.


    Slide25 l.jpg

    TO PRINT A COPY OF YOUR SCHEDULE

    • From the Start Page, click on “Schedule.”

    • On the Schedule page, under Reports, click on “Schedule.”

      (Note: Your Arbiter screen will look a little different than this slide)


    Slide26 l.jpg

    • On the “Print Schedule” screen, select the Date Range that covers the period you want to print and select the format.

      • Note: The Adobe Acrobat format looks pretty but often cannot be word-processed or manipulated in a spreadsheet..

    • Press “Print”. As before, your schedule will appear in a separate window that can be sent to your printer.

    • Your printed schedule will show the names of other officials who have accepted their assignments
