Types of Interactive Forms

RefTown supports several types of interactive forms:

  • Registration
  • Game Reports
  • Evaluation/Observation
  • Ejection/Incident Reports
  • plus a couple more miscellaneous forms

All form submissions are, by default, archived on RefTown. If desired, the archiving of the submissions can be disabled for each form if there is at least one designated email recipient.

Registration forms

  • There are 3 types of registration forms:
    • for officials
    • for schools/teams
    • for school/team personnel.
  • Preformatted
  • Supports the collection of some supplemental information, but only needs to be given a title to be enabled

Game Reports

  • Game reports are tied to specific games—game data is automatically included with the form
  • Game reports can be filled out by members of the crew or by designated evaluators/assignors/administrators 
  • The links for the game reports normally only appear on the game schedule after the game has taken place. There is an option to make the forms available prior to the game.

Evaluation/Observation Forms

  • There are 3 types of evaluation forms
    • by any other official
    • by assigned observers
    • by coaches/schools

Ejection Forms, Sportsmanship Form, & Payroll Error Form

  • Like the other forms, if you do not see a form you like, let us know.

NOTE: The email addresses for the recipients of forms are drawn from the current roster at the time of a form submission. There is never a need to change the form configuration unless you want a different person to receive the form.

Previewing Available Forms

We have a number of forms already created and available for your use. You can browse these forms to see if one meets your needs or comes close to what you need.

  1. Go to Other Info -> Interactive Forms
  2. At the bottom, select a form number under "Preview available forms"
  3. Step backwards/forwards throughout the available forms

If you see one you like, note its number to use in setting up your form. If you can't find one that fits your needs, let us know and we can make a new one. Let us know which one of the available forms is similar to what you need if there is such a form
