After the time for building your schedule is over, you may want to make changes. Coursedog has a robust request feature that allows you to submit after the fact change requests. These requests will then enter a workflow for approval and, if approved, the change will be made in the system.
To access the requests page, select ‘requests’ on the left navigation menu. Here you can see requests that require your vote and that were created by you.
8.2 Create a Request
To create a request, click ‘Create Request’ and select the type of request you wish to make.Rule Exception (we saw these is module 7) allows you to request permission to bypass a rule (e.g.: a standard meeting pattern rule).
Taking 'Section Change' as an example, the next step is to specify which course and section you are making a request for.
Once you select a section, the corresponding form will appear and you will be asked to add a reason for making the request.
The form will look exactly like a standard Section Form, so you can simply input whatever changes you want to make and they will appear at the top of the dashboard.
When you are ready to submit, you can press ‘Submit Request’ and the request will be sent to the associated approval workflow.
8.3 Tracking a Request
To keep track of a request you submitted or want to follow, navigate to the request in the requests table and click the one you want more information about.
You will be taken to the specific request dashboard where you can see the specifics of the request on the left as well as the approval progress of the request on the right.
To see more information about the approval workflow of a request, select ‘Workflow’ in the request toolbox on the right.
Here you can see each step of the approval process. To get more information about a specific step, you can click the title of the step (for example, ‘Registrar Review’).
Section Change requests can be edited after they are submitted by users with the correct permissions.
