Alerts and warnings

Make sure referees and officials are aware of their appointments. Conflicts and parameters can be used to ensure that only an appropriate official is assigned to a match. RefAssist generates various notifications and warnings for referee appointers and officials.

  • RefAssist flags you if you have appointed an unavailable or inappropriate referee. RefAssist tells you why, and it’s up to you to ignore the warning or not.
  • Referees and officials are notified of their assignment by mail, by SMS, or in our communication platform.
  • Set if referees have to accept or reject games directly to the system. RefAssist will inform you of your unaccepted matches.
  • If circumstances change or the official adjusts his or her availability, the software checks that all conditions are still met and generates warnings if not.
  • If the game gets cancelled, the referee has been removed from the game, or the time or venue changes, your officials will automatically be informed with pertinent information.
  • In case of last-minute changes, your officials will need to confirm the change, which allows you to check that they received the message about changes.
  • Referees and observers may be notified if they have not completed a match or assessment report within a certain period of time.
