Module Function Description
CORE Single-Sign On Single-Sign On SIS students and faculty members can logon to the scheduling system using their SMU password and IDs. This would make it easier for students to log on and remove the need of having an additional set of IDs and passwords to manage for login
Manage Schedule Create Schedule The course coordinator and admin are to create the course schedule before every academic term. The schedule consists of a collection of timeslots for the acceptance, midterm and final presentations. The default duration of time slots is 1 hour from 9am to 10pm every day (tentative). Next, the course coordinator will choose the slots that he is available in
View Schedule Any SIS student or faculty member who is interested to view the present or past IS480 team’s schedule can log on to the site to access this information. Upon logon, the user gets access to the schedule for that particular term and is able to view all the time slots and bookings
Update Schedule Once the schedule has been created, the course coordinator will have the option to edit the time slots that he is free in. The course coordinator can remove a certain time slot as long as no team has chosen that for their presentation. These changes would reflect instantly on the term once they have been confirmed
Delete Schedule The admin and course coordinator can remove an existing schedule for a semester
Manage Booking Create Booking When creating a booking, only one team member can make a booking on behalf of his team at a given time. This request will be sent directly to the team’s respective supervisors and reviewers for approval/rejection
View Booking Users are able to access a particular booking on the schedule to get details such as venue of presentation, attendees, time of presentation, presenting team’s information
Update Booking The admin can update the details of the booking such as the venue, attendees etc
Delete Booking Teams have to drop their confirmed booking if they would like to make a new one or update their current one. If a team deletes a booking, that will automatically become available to other teams. This ensures that there is only one booking per team at any given time
Approve/Reject Booking Once a proposed booking is sent to a team’s respective supervisor and reviewers, they are able to approve or reject the booking according to their availability. In the event the supervisor or reviewer rejects the booking, the team will be notified and would have to make another booking. The booking is confirmed only when the supervisor and reviewers approve it. A proposed booking has to be approved/rejected by the supervisor and reviewers within four days, otherwise the booking would be automatically deleted and the team will be notified to propose a new one
