Exporting Detailed Customizable Assignment Data is Not Possible from Arbiter. The Outlook csv export can be customized, however it lacks most of the details available when viewing an assignment. The Schedule Report can be exported as an Excel file, however because it is formatted for printing, the data is contained on multiple rows and therefore almost useless for the end user to manipulate in programs like Excel.
Some record keeping reasons why we need this exportable detailed data include: 1. Reconciling payments such as, RefPay, checks and cash. 2. Tracking partners worked with 3. Personal historical milestones (total games, totals and percentages of games as head/chief official. 4. Notes regarding challenges at site locations. In general, a record of all things with complete data is VERY desirable.
If ALL data, including individual game data (partners, distance, group, etc.) could be exported in a single csv file, this would allow the end user to customize it in any fashion that works for them. The export should place all data for each game on a SINGLE ROW so that the end user could sort in any customized fashion they desire.
Please add more details
Arbiter currently allows an export for "Outlook csv" which has only enough info for use in a calendar program, but isn't useful as a detailed record of assignments. The "Schedule Report," does include some of the more detailed information, but it is formatted for printing and thus useless as sortable data. In the report format, a the details for a single game are contained on multiple rows and columns, which prints nicely, but can't be used for data manipulation.
