Glossary of Terms - Schedule Evergreen
Scheduling requests can be made for each activity. The request indicates a desire to schedule or reschedule spaces. It may have a series of scheduling needs which identify the resources required for a particular activity.
- Need - The scheduling needs required to make an activity happen. Typically this is based on the type of activity that is being requested. Needs start out as being associated with a request, but eventually become part of the request for a space.
- Resource - A possibly movable thing (or person) that can be requested with some subset of spaces. Examples include the grand piano that gets moved between the recital halls in the com building or the Science Instructional Tech that gets assigned to support a lab.
A collection of spaces and resources for the purpose of controlling attributes that define how the space gets scheduled. Note that space groups are typically organized around the kinds of spaces that they are, but this does not imply that spaces must be grouped in this way. Each space group belongs to a scheduling center.
Scheduled spaces are divided among scheduling centers, which determines which office or area is responsible for the scheduling of these spaces. For these reasons permissions are associated with each scheduling center.
