This document goes over some of the specific actions you can take with the other group administrators that you can add. For the purposes of this document, "primary group administrator" refers to person in whose name the account was created, and "group administrator" refers to all others.
Filtering allows you to view your group administrators if they match certain criteria you have set. To filter group administrators, click on the USERS tab, then the GROUP ADMIN sub-tab. On the Administrators page, click on the Filter link. Enter the criteria you want ArbiterSports.com to filter. Filter criteria is cumulative. In other words, each group administrator must qualify under each of the fields and not just any one of them. Use an asterisk (*) to have the system look for a wider range of values that meet a certain criteria. For example, *hotmail.com will return any email address that ends with hotmail.com.
Sending Welcome Email
The welcome letter contains information about ArbiterSports.com with instructions on signing in along with the user’s account name and password. A link is provided to ArbiterSports.com which will help group administrators log on. The welcome message can also be used to remind the group administrators to sign in, to continue use of their account, or as a reminder if they forget their email address or password.
You or any other group administrator can email the other group administrators within the group. The recipient list is populated by the current filter. Click the Send button when you have finished composing your email.
Refer to the Scope document.
Add Group Administrator
NOTE:You will need to purchase a license for group administrators to be available.
To add a group administrator, click on the green plus icon. This will take you to a step by step process to enter in the group administrator's information. The first screen prompts for the first name, last name, and e-mail address. The first name and last name fields are required but an e-mail address is not. However, if an e-mail address is not entered for the group administrator he or she will not be able to log on to ArbiterSports.com.
If the e-mail address you enter is recognized as a current ArbiterSports.com user, you will see a message that says that the e-mail address is already being used by someone in the system. If the person displayed is the person you want to use, click Next. Otherwise click Cancel. Clicking Next will take you to a page that states that you cannot use this person until they log in to the system. Their personal information will not be visible until they accept to be part of your group. If you want to input their information immediately, click the checkbox to do so and then click the Next button. Note that the information you enter will be overwritten once the group administrator accepts to be part of your group.
Entering Personal Information
None of a group administrator's personal information, such as address, SSN or DOB is required. Once you have entered in the desired information click 'Next'. The group administrator's Title explains their role in the group, e.g. Sub-Varsity Group administrator. The only required field on this page is "Header 1." Note that the header lines will determine what displays on the invoices as the source/return address on invoices and paysheets. Click the Next button. The confirmation page lets you know that the group administrator was added successfully. Click the Finish button.
Edit Group administrator
Note: If a group administrator has another ArbiterSports account, their address and phone number information will NOT BE EDITABLE.

Description of Group Administrator Permissions
Group Administrators have some different permission than other users. We wil highlight some of these differences below.
Sign in the system – Allows the group administrator to sign into your group. Without this permission group administrators have no access to the group administrator account you created for them.
Add/Delete games – Allows the group administrator to add new games and delete existing games. This does not allow them to assign officials to the games.
Edit games 'x' days in advance – Allows the group administrator to assign officials and to edit existing games. You must set the limit before moving the group administrator over to the allowed list. This limit determines when a group administrator can no longer assign or edit a game because all "short-notice" requests need to be handled by the primary group administrator. Enter "0" as the limit to allow the group administrator to edit any game at any time.
Mass publish by officials - Allows the group administrator to publish games to the selected officials (the All column) on the officials page by displaying the Publish link in the left hand column.
Mass publish by games - Allows the group administrator to publish games on the Games & Assignments page by displaying the Publish link in the left hand column.

Edit permissions – Allows the group administrator to edit the permissions for officials and contacts.
