How to Submit a Request

  1. Click on the Schedule Request tab if you do not see the screen below.  
  2. Select your schedule type.
  3. When entering a schedule, any field with a red check mark beside it is a required field.  The system will not save your request if the information is not filled out.  
    1. Enter the Event Title.  
    2. Click on the drop-down menu beside Location and Room to select the spaces that are needed.
    3. Choose your Event Dates by clicking on the date in the calendar box to the right.  You can click on the black arrows in the calendar box to change months.
    4. Click on the button to verify you are not double booking a room.
    5. NOTE:  The boxes beside Duration and Spans ( shown below the Setup/Breakdown time) typically will not need to be changed.  Spans over should be left for 1 day unless you are requesting an overnight event. The duration automatically calculates according to the start and end time that you enter.  Also, make sure that you are selecting AM or PM for the correct time of day.
    6. If you are requesting a space for 1 on 1 tutoring of a Pembroke student, please select that from the dropbox so that the correct invoice can be generated.
  4. Enter any Additional Information, Organization Information, Insurance Information, Setup Requirements, and Rental Requests that may appear in the form. Remember, make sure to fill in all required fields marked with a red checkmark.   
  5. At the bottom of the page, you will be prompted to enter the Submittal Password of titans. Click Save to submit your request.
    1. Note:  If you have multiple schedule requests to enter at one time, you can use the Renew feature to save you time.  Once you have submitted the first request, scroll to the top of the screen and click on Renew Schedule.  This feature acts as a copy button and will copy all the information, except for event dates, from the schedule that you just submitted to a new schedule request form.  Because it is a new schedule, you will be able to update any of the
      necessary fields and add the new event dates.
  6. You can review any requests that you have entered into the system.  Click on the My Requests tab, then hover your mouse over the Shortcuts link and click on My Schedule Requests.  You will be able to see when your request has been approved, declined, etc.  You are also able to print out a listing of your requests by clicking on the printer icon.

How to View the Calendar

  1. You can view an event calendar while in the My Requests section.  Hover your mouse over Related Links (next to the Shortcuts link) then click on Month Calendar, Day Calendar, or Week Calendar.
  2. When accessing the month calendar, for example, the default view will be on the current month/year.  You can change either of these by clicking on the blue down arrows.  The calendar will not display any events at first.  Select from the Location drop-down menu, then click Refresh Calendar.  You can also filter your calendar view according to room, organization, etc.  The more items you select, the more your calendar will be filtered. 
  3. The items that you will see on the calendar are the event titles.  If you would like more information about a particular event, simply click on the title to view the details.  There is a legend under the calendar that indicates what the dots and symbols to the left of the event title represent.
