3 Status of Change Orders, cont. New: No. 38 – 1Q2005 PAS Users Proposed Enhancements to the PAS. NOWG recommended approval of all seven suggestions. Suggestion 1: PAS users should have the option of having Part 3s, Part 4 reminders notices, etc. sent to an additional designated person or persons besides the user. Suggestion 2: Enhance the existing query capabilities for the block report by allowing users to query at the rate center level in addition to the state and NPA. Suggestion 3: Allow users to request through the PAS that the system generate a new password for them, so they do not have to be dependent upon the Number Pooling Customer Support to reset the password.
4 Status of Change Orders, cont. New, cont. No. 38 – 1Q2005 PAS Users Proposed Enhancements, cont. Suggestion 4: Have the existing e-mail notification for processing a block donation show the disposition of the block donation, to eliminate the additional step for the SP of locating the disposition of the block donation within the users work items in PAS. Suggestion 5: The user should have the ability to specify a different effective date for each thousand-block when requesting multiple thousands-blocks on one application. Suggestion 6: A disclaimer should be added to the Part 1A, explaining that even though a block may be available at the time of application, it may not be available at the time the PA processes the request. Suggestion 7: Have the PAS notify the user via an e-mail of the pending password de-activation date when a user has a period of inactivity in PAS that reaches 120 calendar days. No. 39 –Thousands Block Part 4 Report (combines previous Change Orders 25 and 34). NOWG recommended approval.
