ZebraWeb.org

Has anyone been assigned games by an assigner that uses ZebraWeb.org?

What are its pros and cons versus Arbiter?

Thanks.

Zebra web

I get some assignments via zebraweb. I feel that arbiter is easier to set up blocks, and to get a schedule report. Arbiter allows you to see all members of the assigning group, but zebraweb does not. I have only received about 10 assignments over the last 3 years from this assigner, and he is the only one not using arbiter. I find it more difficult to coordinate my schedule.

Yes.

It sucks worse than Arbiter which is actually pretty hard to do. Pretty sure Arbiter hasn't changed at all in the past 5 years until their 'facelift' which added virtually no additional functionality. ZebraWeb just adds another calendar which I need to update. All these platforms should really figure out a way to share calendars. I have 7 different calendars to keep up to date.

MTD -

I use arbiter to assign and I work for others via Zebra Web .....one of the biggest negatives about ZW is that you can't pull up all your schedules on one page like you can via the arbiter.....

Functionality and user-friendliness of ZW is dreadful.
