ML Schedules™ Software District Admins and Users with the Permission to Bypass Approval have the ability to bypass the approval process when submitting a Facility Use Request.

While logged into ML Schedules™ Software:

1. First begin the Request Process by selecting the orange New Request button at the top right of the screen or click directly on the Calendar on an open time slot. (as shown in the image below.)

At the bottom of the request form you will see the Do Not Require Approval on This Request check box that is only displayed to users assigned either a Bypass Approval permission.

2. Select the checkbox in the Do Not Require Approval on This Request field to bypass the approval path for this Request.

3. Select Confirm & Submit Request.

The Request will have bypassed the approval process and will appear on your district’s internal calendar as an approved event.

Helpful Hint: You can tell if the bypass approval feature was used, by checking the Approval History at the bottom of any Request Information page. If the same user's name is listed as the approver 4 times, with the exact same date and time stamp, you are able to determine that the bypass approval permission was used for this request.
