Schedule Evergreen is the college's primary space and related resource management system for all curricular and event scheduling across the Olympia and Tacoma campuses.
What does it do?
Schedule Evergreen manages campus space requests and confirmations, manages publishing of events, and provides user specific schedules. Space Requests: all spaces, except a small amount of administrative meeting spaces managed by specific offices, are reservable through Schedule Evergreen. Event Publishing: all campus events, both curricular and not, are advertised through Schedule Evergreen. User Driven: all authenticated users (students, faculty and staff) have access to their own view of Schedule Evergreen from my.evergreen.edu, where they can request space, see confirmed spaces, and see events.
Who uses it?
Students can view availability of, or reserve spaces for specific areas on campus that support their academic work. Students can work with a faculty, staff or student group sponsor in order to reserve space for an event, except for select specialty spaces that they can self-schedule. Students can see their academic schedule once they have registered for an offering.
Faculty, Staff, and Student Staff:
Faculty and Staff can research and see if any space is available for their event or offering (faculty only). They can see what other events are confirmed for the space that they are researching. Faculty and staff can create event with a schedule of activities and request space for the activities. Faculty and staff can see their own schedule that included events they own and/or have subscribed to.

Media Services Center Interface
- Provides an overview of everything in the Media Services Center by day
- Search by Space Group
- Allows the user to search by week and Space Group
- Space Groups a collection of spaces and resources for the purpose of controlling attributes that define how the space(s) 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. Media Services has to consider building hours, proficiencies, and type of lab to form our space groups.
- Clicking into the day calendar with the unlock takes you back to the daily view
- DO NOT USE THIS FEATURE UNLESS AUTHORIZED BY STAFF
This will not be needed much at the Media Loan desk.
Allows you to search for an Event by:
An event has a definable start and end date that can be a single activity or that can tie together multiple activities. Think about conference events where one event can have multiple meeting spaces. Each event has an event type which further defines how these events are labeled created and subscribed to.
An activity is the part of an event where space can be assigned. When you schedule time for student work in our Media Services spaces, these are activities.
- This allows you to search by a#, user_name, last name, or first last name.
- Faculty and staff also show up in this search.
- From this page you can see Upcoming Reservations, Enrollment Info, and the badges assigned to the faculty, staff, or student.
Probably won't use this feature, this is used for open hours for things like the ceramics studio
Badges are assigned to a lab or a space group. This is like proficiencies in WCO.
Badges are used for:
- LNA--Late Night Access
- Access lists
- To block patrons on hold with the Banned User Badge
Individual labs can only have one badge, but space groups can have multiple. Proficiencies are tied to the individual spaces and LNA and Access Lists are set at the space group level.
- Click into the Badge option on the sidebar.
- Select Assign Badge
- Select the Badge Type with the drop down menu
- By selecting the type of badge, a default expiration will be set
- Enter a name, a# or username or last, first *this should also work with a barcode scanner and an student ID card
- Click on the user
- Hit the Assign Badges button
Reviewing Members Assigned to a Badge
- Under the badges page all individual badges are listed with the number assigned.
- Click on the underlined number associated with the badge.
- The results can be sorted by name, the date the badge was received the expiration date, who added the badge, and the current class/program registration.
- The data in badge categories was transferred from another data management system, so there could be a few errors from the transfer.
- If a patron tells you they have received a badge for a space, try to find a staff or a lead to make a determination about the information.
Currently there aren't a lot of completed Wiki pages for Schedule Evergreen. This system is brand new, so this will get developed over time.
Media Services Groups
Media Services have to take into account building hours, Late Night Access, class/program registration, etc to determine our space groups. We have labs in both the Library and Communications Buildings.
Library Building is 24/7 if students have an exterior door fob.
The Communications Building closes at 2:00am and requires (LNA) Late Night Access after 9pm and all day on Sunday and students need a fob for the exterior building doors.

Scheduling a Space for a Patron
- Go into the Media Services Center
- Select the desired Space Group
- You will see each space in the Space Group and if they are open to schedule
- For checking Space Availability:
- The time and date will default to the current date and the nearest hour
- The Duration will default to 2 hours
- This default duration, time and date appear as a red outline on the schedule
- Set the correct date, time, duration, and participants
- just click into the timeline of a space to start scheduling and set all this information during the scheduling process
Schedule Event Window
- Verify you have selected the correct space by reviewing the space title
- Search for the patron information in the Event Owner tab by entering a name, a# or username or last, first *this should also work with a barcode scanner and an patron ID card
- Select the date, time, and duration
- Hit Save
Rule Violations and Overrides
- If a patron doesn't have a necessary badge for a space, if the booking occurs outside of the space's hours, or if the booking is double-booked you will receive a notice of these violations.
- Media Loan students that aren't leads cannot override rule violations.
- Leads, temporary staff, permanent staff, and Media Services interns can override violations. Even if you are a lead, find a staff before doing an override. If there are no staff around, use your best judgement. Sometimes patrons will have to wait for staff to be back in the area to receive an override. When in doubt, don't. If someone pressures you, you can always tell patrons that the system won't let you, so there's nothing you can do at the moment.
- If Media Loan staff knowingly schedule a patron for a space they are not authorized to use this is a violation of our policies and could lead to a written warning.
- If you are a lead, you will have the option to check an Override Rules box.
Edit or Deleting a Scheduled Time
- Go to the Student Search tab and enter a name, a# or username or last, first *this should also work with a barcode scanner and an patron ID card
- Under their Future Reservations, any bookings that are in the Media Services Center will provide you a pencil and minus icon.
- The pencil let's you edit the booking, the minus icon lets you delete the booking.
