To make a request for space in the Webviewer, click on the My Requests link in the Webviewer menu bar.
Once you have clicked the My Requests link, the Webviewer will display the User Logon screen. Type your active directory Username in the username text box. Type your active directory Password in the username password text box. Click the Log On button.
Note: Your active directory username and password are the same username and password you use to log into your e-mail and computer each day.

The Webviewer will immediatly log you on to the system and take you to the Request an Event form. The form is broken into a number of sections. You use the first section of the form to enter the event's name, title, type, sponsoring organization, and expected head count.
It is important that you give your event a distinctive Event Name since the name is what displays on the webviewer events calendar. To aid schedulers, place your name and Western phone extension in the Event Title field in cast the space approver needs to contact you for clarifications (e.g., Keith Stiles, x3043).
After you have entered an Event Name and Event Title, you need to choose an Event Type from the list contained in the drop-down box. Although an Event Type is not required at the time of request, it will save time for you and the official space approver once they receive your request for space. A partial list of the available Event Types is displayed in the following screen capture. There are event types covering most every potential type of event. If there is not an event type that fits your event, you may put information in the comments section of the form and the space approver will share with the R25 System Administrator.
It is also helpful for you to go ahead and indicate the Sponsoring Organization for the event request. Click on the organization from the drop-down list. Should you organization not be listed, place information in the comments for review by the System Administrator for additions.
You complete the first section of the space request form by indicating the expected headcount for your event. Although this is not a required field, it is very beneficial for you to go ahead and enter an expected headcount. Entering this data will allow the space approver to ensure that the space preference you have requested has the requisite seating capacity.

The second part of the space request form is used to indicate the Start and End dates and the Start and End times for the event. Use the Start and End times of the form to indicate the actual event times. If you need setup and takedown times for the event, indicate how much time you will need in the event comments section of the form.
Note: The Webviewer form defaults to a non-repeating event function.However, you may use the form to schedule repeating dates for your event. Choosing Ad Hoc allows you to choose a random series of dates on which to event repeats. Choosing Daily allows you to schedule the event to repeat daily in a series until a set date (should be the same as your End date above) or for a set number of repetitions. Choosing Weekly allows you to set a weekly meeting pattern for the event in the same fashion as the daily event.

The third part of the space request form allows you to choose a Space Preference. Space preferences can be set for a specific space (only schedulable spaces are included in the drop-down list). Or you may set a space preference for Any Space In a certain space group. If you choose this setting, the space approvers will make a choice for you concerning the specific space for your event.
The fourth part of the space request form allows you to choose Resources for your event. It is important to note that the resources listed in this list currently are only available for use in either the Ramsey Activity Center of the Hinds University Center. To make a request, you simply enter the number of tables, etc. that you need.
The fifth part of the space request form concerns requirements the event may have. You may need meals for a certain number of people, an alcohol permit, ticket sellers, or other needs.
The final section of the space request form allows users to enter Comments and a Description you would like to apply for the event. The comments are included as a part of the entry that space approvers will see and can use if they need to make additional modifications to your request that are more complex than what you can complete in the Webviewer. The description field can be used for more specific information that you would like displayed on the webviewer.
After you have completed this section, click the Next button to move to view a summary of your request.

Once you have clicked Next, the Webviewer will display an Event Request Summary report that you can use to review your entry choices. This report is your chance to verify that all of your data is entered correctly. If you see errors, you may make correctiuons by clicking on the Make Changes button, If you do not need to make any changes, click the Submit Request button.Once you have clicked Submit Request, the Webviewer will send the event to the Resource25 database and display an Event Request Confirmation report containing the details of your request. If you need to make additional space requests, you may click the Request Another Event button to open a new request form.
Once your event has been submitted, it is directed to the Webviewer Seat. This Resource25 user will receive a Workflow item in their drafts folder that they can then work with to route to appropriate space approvers.
