General Overview The system acts as a portal from which AUB students and administrators can access their facilities each with a different respective level of authority which conforms with AUB's hierarchy in procedures. As an overview, the web application deals with three major functions: first, handling events and activities, second, dealing with elections and third, consulting various career services. The system is built using Microsoft SharePoint integrated with an active directory to import users information and keep their profiles.

System Merits and Future Overview Our system may be adopted by AUB and thus integrated with its systems because it caters for AUB students needs alongside following AUB protocols The system is so important for students, it saves them from going from office to office doing paper work, getting approvals for events, standing in lines and waiting among crowds to vote. The system is important for the administrators because it saves their time and effort in keeping all documents in files, and eliminates the risk of documents being lost or misplaced. It also removes the trouble of counting the votes, and makes sure the voting results are precise. The system also helps the administrators because they no longer have to go through the process of checking every students CV, and sending him/her back a confirmation letter, then sending the CV to the specified firm. Using the system, they just confirm a CV once, and the system handles the application for jobs and sending notifications. Administrators will also no longer have to go through the trouble of sending specific jobs to specific students, they will only have to broadcast it; a students will have it available on his/her page if it matches his/her interests. The system is to be expanded to include all documents that a student might need to have from AUB, like transcripts, payments for cap and gown, clearance, petitions (general purpose petition, open-capacity, overload, duplicate degree, dual degree and Minor, etc.) Students in the current system have to wait in long queues for unacceptable long times, to get a paper signed, and then sometimes wait in another queue to pay for the paper expenses, then come again after a couple of days to retrieve the document. With our system, every thing is done online; All forms are available online, administrator-student and administrator-administrator workflows are maintained and managed online, money is also deducted from or added to the students account at AUB if needed. We could widen the radius of our users by making the system a general one; with a few customizations, it can be ported to institutions other than AUB that demand similar functionalities, for example: other universities and even any institution that wants to maintain inter-employee relationships and tasks distribution.
