Enhancements to Room Characteristics Pages in M-Pathways

You are receiving this message because you have the M-Pathways Room Characteristic User role for your school, college, and/or department. New features are now available in the Room Characteristics pages described below.

As you may know, the Room Characteristics pages in the M-Pathways Space Management System are used to track scheduling characteristics for all room types, but particularly classrooms. Room Characteristic Users are responsible for keeping this data up-to-date to support departmental and Registrar’s Office class scheduling needs throughout the year, as classroom IT/AV equipment, furniture, seating capacities, or other amenities change.

Fields Added to Room Characteristics Component
To better assist you in searching for and managing room scheduling changes, the following three fields were added to the Find an Existing Value (search) and the Scheduling pages within Room Characteristics:
-- Facility ID
A code representing a unique identifier for a facility, e.g. CHEM1800. Note: This field was also added to the All page.
-- Scheduling Deptid
The Department ID of the department with scheduling authority for an instructional facility.
-- Scheduling Status
A code specifying whether the room is Active or Inactive for scheduling purposes. Valid values are:
A - Active and available for class/event scheduling
I - Inactive and unavailable for class/event scheduling

Note: Room Characteristic Users are required to maintain Scheduling Status along with the other required characteristics in either the Scheduling or All pages within Room Characteristics.

Documentation
For documentation on using the M-Pathways Room Characteristics pages, refer to My LINC.
