One major benefit of ML Schedules™ Software is the ability to allow community members to complete and submit a Facility Use Request from a school district’s website.
Here is some content that districts have found helpful to include when integrating ML Schedules™ Software for community use into their web sites.
- The website’s Facility Department web page is typically used to link to a Facility Use Request page that contains the content described below.
- All linked URLs need to be from your district’s State login page (e.g., http://ny.mlschedules.com/Login.aspx for New York State).
