MySchoolBuilding Setup

MySchoolBuilding is the online portal that requesters use to access the schedule request form. Bringing requesters on board saves time for the facility use department, streamlines the approval process, and enhances communication.

How to Set Up the MySchoolBuilding Page

  • Click on the Account Setup tab.
  • Click on the Setup MySchoolBuilding link.
  • Enter an Introduction Paragraph to provide instructions for requesters to follow. It will be displayed under the Request Form Title.

  • Enter an MSB Admin Contact Name and Phone to provide your requesters with a contact person within your organization if they have any questions when submitting a request.

  • Select Yes or No if you would like to require your requester to enter a Number Attending, Organization Address, Email, Name, or Phone Number when they are submitting their schedule request.

  • Select Yes or No if you would like to prompt for Extra Chairs or for Number of Parking Spaces needed.

  • Select Yes or No if you would like to show Building, Calendar, Questions, and/or Services on the schedule request form. *Note: Services only apply if you own FSAutomation.

  • Decide if you would like events submitted by requesters to appear on their calendar using the Default Calendar Visibility for New Schedules. If so, select Public. If not, select Private.

  • Selecting Prompt for Tentative Scheduling allows requesters to tentatively book a room for an event. A schedule with this option selected will remain in a Pending state until final activation.

  • Enter an Email Us address for your requesters to contact with any questions or comments.

  • Click Save.

 

Adding Requester Links to the MySchoolBuilding Page

MySchoolBuilding users can sometimes have a tough time accessing the FSDirect calendar. To make this easier for them, Administrators can add a simple string of HTML code in the Introductory Paragraph that will take them right to the calendar.

  • Copy and paste the following text into the Introductory Paragraph box and click Save:

     The Dude Says:

Below are links to Requester Guide word documents that you can download and modify to fit your organization. Add your Organization Account Number, Submittal Password, and your MySchoolBuilding portal link to the document as well as delete any request form steps that you have not made available in your account. Then you can send the document out to your requesters so they will have all the information needed to login and submit requests. For clients that use ConnectAuthenticate for single sign-on, modify that guide instead.
