It is a rare instance when I will have week night games to assign. For your regular schedule, you only need to block Saturday and Sunday for the season.
After you login, select Blocks from the menu bar.
On the left of the screen under "Action" there are 4 radial buttons. Select "Block All Day" or "Block Partial Day" and click on a calendar day to block those days. By clicking on the month in the upper corners of the calendar you can move between the months to make changes.
Note - Once you have selected any of the radial options (other than View Schedule) that action will make changes on any day you click on the calendar even if you did not intend it to be changed. Ensure you only click the calendar days you want to change if you have one of the three action buttons selected (Block All Day, Block Partial or Clear Blocks). It is easy to make entry mistakes by clicking on the calendar days more than one time.
Description of Action buttons:
View Schedule - with this selected and clicking on the days in the calendar, you can see what has already been blocked (Information about blocks for selected day will show under the calendar)
Block All Day - with this selected and clicking on the days in the calendar, blocks the whole day
Block Partial Day - with this selected and clicking on the days in the calendar, allows you to use the Time Range feature to block certain hours of the day
Clear Blocks - with this selected and clicking on the days in the calendar, will remove blocks from a day (Used if you make a mistake on a particular day or if you are now available on that day and want to remove all blocks).
Colors on the days of the month indicate status:
White/Gray - open all day
Red - Block all day (not available)
Light Red - Partial day block (can't work hours selected i.e - selecting 8AM to 12PM would block the morning allowing afternoon games to be assigned)
Block All Day:
If you need to block a whole day that is currently open (white or gray on calendar) -
Select the Block All Day radial button
Click the day on the calendar to block
If you need to block a whole day that already has a partial block (light red on calendar) -
First remove the partial block - ensure the View Schedule radial button is selected
Click on the calendar day
Below the calendar click the red X next to each partial block listed
Now select the Block All Day radial button
Click on the calendar day to block - it should now be red
Block Partial Day:
You are only available from 10AM to 2PM on a particular Saturday -
Select Block Partial Day
In the Time Range set time (8:00 AM to 10:00 AM), then click the day on the calendar to block
In the Time Range now set time (2:00 PM to 6:00 PM), then click the same day
You have now blocked the hours around (10AM to 2PM) and will not receive assignments for those hours.
To verify your blocks, select View Schedule, click on the same day and the current blocks will appear below the calendar.
If your schedule changes and you open up in the afternoon, click the red X next to the blocked time - it will be removed
Remove all Blocks on a day:
If you have created too many blocks on a single day (clicked day by mistake), you just want to reset the day or open the whole day -
Select the Clear Blocks radial button
Click the day on the calendar you want to change, all blocks for that day will be removed and the day will change colors to white or gray
Remove some blocks on a day:
If you need to make a partial change because your availability has changed or remove a partial block you don't need anymore (your availability has changed) -
First, select the View Schedule radial button so you can see what blocks exist
Click the day on the calendar to change
Below the calendar all blocks for that day will now be listed
Click on the red X next to the block you want to remove, if there are multiple that need to be removed repeat by clicking on the next X
