What is it?
The AssignorPro™ Referee Assignment System is a Microsoft® Windows based software application that provides the Referee Assignor with the tools and controls to effectively manage match assignments in a timely and accurate manner. The system is easy to download, install and maintain from this website. The system is presently configured to manage the assignment of officials to soccer matches. AssignorPro™ was developed from the successful Tournament Administrative System in use by the Regional and National Youth Championships for over fourteen years.
Data management is provided through related data tables that minimizes the re-entry of repeated information. Data maintenance on officials is done through an easy to use data entry form that separates data into subject matters through tabbed pages. This data is then used throughout the AssignorPro system.
Scheduling, site locations, leagues, tournaments and school information are entered and maintained through similar data entry forms. Import functionality is provided to load League, Division, Club, Team and Schedule data from standard formatted MS Office Excel spreadsheets. Customized imports may be developed for an additional fee. AssignorPro also has the capability of exporting assignment data to Assessors who use AssessorPro, thus speeding up the setup of their games to be assessed.
Game assignments are managed through a single data form that brings together all of the assignment related information such as Officials, Games Schedule, and locations. Controls are in place to prevent assignment of officials who already have assignments at the same time. Officials who have indicated unavailability for specific time periods during a day or over a period of days will not be available for assignment. Additionally, warnings and reports are presented to inform the Assignor when officials may have previously officiated these teams, when assignments are geographically problematic or when there may be conflicts of interest due to affiliation with competing teams. Previous assignments as well as Official’s ratings and recommended age level limitations along with a record of NoShows/TurnBacks are displayed during the assignment process to allow the Assignor to make informed assignment decisions.
