ACF Scheduler Guide
Before using the ACF scheduler, please review our policies. The current ACF scheduling system was implemented in April of 2008 to make the process of reserving an instructional lab as efficient and user-friendly as possible. Although the user interface is fairly intuitive, some questions may arise when attempting to reserve a lab. Please review the following guidelines before requesting a reservation for the first time:
Selecting Your Class
entering the CRN
using the pull-down menus to choose the rubric name, number, and section.
When selecting your class, you must include the section number as well (otherwise the request cannot be submitted). Section numbers will be displayed on the room calendars, minimizing confusion among students who use the calendars to confirm class meeting times.
Recurring Meeting Times
Request Will Appear Immediately On Schedule
The class will appear on the calendar as soon as a request has been submitted. However, this does not mean that the class is confirmed.
Please be aware that until your request is approved by a member of ACF Staff, the class will be labeled as Tentative on the calendar.
All classes are initially labeled as tentative so that a member of ACF Staff may review the request to ensure the meeting times (and other pertinent information) are accurate. For example, a request for a class on Friday evening at 7:00 PM would still show up on the calendar as tentative, even though the facility closes at 5:00 PM on Fridays. Even an absurd request (such as 3:00 AM) will show up on the calendar as tentative, but NO reservations are official until approved by a member of ACF staff.
- Once the class has been approved, the tentative label will disappear and a confirmation email will be sent to the requestor.
Additional instructors may be added to your request by selecting Add New Person under the section entitled People. The user filling out the reservation request will be listed the "Requestor."
This feature is important when...
someone besides the actual instructor is filling out the request (e.g., a secretary)
the course is taught by more than one instructor (e.g., a T.A.).
