Frequently Asked Questions
What does EMS stand for?
EMS stands for Event Management System.
There are no options for groups in my drop-down. How do I select a group?
You have to add your group to your drop-down by clicking on the magnifying glass next to group. From here you should search for your group (department or student group). Type in the first few letters in the group name and hit the magnifying glass. Add your group by hitting the green and white plus sign. Hit done and then you will be able to see your group in the dropdown menu.-
How come a room I'm looking for doesn't show up when I'm requesting a space?
The only rooms that will come up to choose from when you are trying to request a space are the rooms that are available at that time and that fit the number you put in the attendance.
Where do I schedule the conference rooms?
The conference rooms are not on the new scheduling system so continue to schedule them the way that you have in the past, directly with the department scheduler. If you need help finding a conference room I'll be happy to help you find a room just call x5599 or send me an e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
