One often-requested feature now available in the January ML Schedules™ Facility Use Request Software release is an “On Hold” status available to District staff assigned Approver, Reservation Manager or Admin roles.
The new status is designed to allow District staff to get missing documentation or other information from a Group Manager prior to formally approving a Facility Use Request. When a Request is set to On Hold, the requested space will appear as “Not Available” in the public display view if that feature is enabled at the District level.
District approvers who place a Request On Hold can specify what information is required to approve the Request via a comment field in the Reservation Information (details) screen which is automatically sent to the Group Manager along with notification of the On Hold status.
Once the Group Manager has submitted the necessary information via ML Schedules™ Software, authorized District staff can the remove the Hold and Approve (or Decline) the Facility Use Request.
For more information about using the new On Hold status, please consult Tech Note 08, New District Features, which also describes seven other new capabilities in our January software release.
