The TIM System allows users to set personal preferences for the following areas:
The following icons are used in the system:
|Edit or View Request: Click this icon to review or make changes to your request.|
|Cancel Request: This option allows you to delete a saved request prior to submitting it to your department budget manager or the appropriate service provider.|
|Submit for Approval: Clicking this icon will submit your request to your department budget manager or the appropriate service provider.|
|Retract Approval: This option allows you to retract a submitted request prior to its approval by your department budget manager. Once a request has been approved, it cannot be retracted or canceled.|
Many TIM requests require the approval of your department budget manager before work can begin. Therefore, you must submit each service request for approval by selecting the Submit for Approval icon ().
If you wish to make changes to your request after it has been submitted to your department budget manager, you must retract it. The request can be retracted by selecting the Retract Approval icon (). Upon submission, your department budget manager will receive an e-mail notification of the retraction.
In most cases, your job will not be initiated until it has been approved by your department budget manager; however, jobs that do not require a fee (media services, maintenance, room reservations, etc.) will begin immediately.
Select My Requests to view all of your saved and submitted requests, along with the status of each. You may visit this area at any time to review the progress of your request. The requests displayed in My Requests are determined by your Default Project Filter (Review the My Preferences section above.). You can temporarily change the filter settings by clicking Show/Hide Search Criteria.
Use the My Projects and Events function when planning a major project or event that will require multiple service requests. This section allows you to group all related requests (i.e. catering, communications, publications, etc.) under one umbrella. When you select My Projects and Events, you will be able to quickly view each request and its status.
