Your request to establish an account will be sent to the group owner for approval.Before moving forward a decision needs to be made on who will be Group Owners for your company’s sub-groups. The group owner will then establish his or her account first. The group owner will then have access to provide other users for your company with the following four access levels. The group owner can also reject a requested user if need be.The 4 different access levels are View Only, Requestor, Authorized Requestor, and Group Owner.View Only – enables a user to look at the history of requests but has no authority to request changes.Requestor – enables a user to submit an add, change, delete or temporary/issue request.

Once approved by an authorized requestor the request will go into ‘open’ status and batch scheduling will then begin processing within the standard turnaround times.Note: Establishing access to be a requestor isn’t a requirement.
