Allow umpires to request to be assigned to a game (TBA assigning)

On a previous assigning system I used, I could send a message to my officials allowing them to apply to games. Then, at my discretion, I could access the available games, see who applied, and complete assigning. This helped reduce declined games and availability issues. It also allowed me to work within a single tool rather than having to bounce back and forth between the assigning tool and my email.

Please add more details

After four years of use with another assigning tool, this TBA function has become second nature to many officials.

    currently this is not a 1 in all tool, it is however some very great feedback for arbiter production team. i suppose currently which you could do is allow officials to "self attach games" where they can put there self on a game but not as a assignment and then chose from that lists who you want to actually assign. yes it is a work-around way and not completely user friendly but it may simulate this. this is very valuable feedback however

    I haven’t done that as of yet in Arbiter. But as of now I guess I’ll have to send an email with the dates, locations and times, and bounce between the incoming emails and arbiter to assign. 

    In the previous system I selected the games that were open then clicked “send tba “, when sent a message to officials with every game I’d selected.

    Thanks for the feedback. How are you doing this now? You referenced your email, so I'd like to learn more.
