Old Workshop Scheduler Terms:

Administrator: each Community has at least one Administrator who creates and maintains the workshop schedule; the Community Administrator is listed with the Leaders in the Community but may not necessarily be a workshop Leader; assigning a Leader the position of Workshop Administrator does not give Administrator credentials: these must be requested (see page 15). Any Community Administrator may request Admin credentials for someone in their department, unless communicated otherwise to the System Admin for WS.

participant : a user who has successfully registered for a workshop

System Administrator : assists with troubleshooting and training; contact by creating a support ticket (see page 15)

user : a visitor to the Workshops web site who can sign up to participate; participants must have an login (student, faculty, or staff with a current ASU ID); anyone logged in who is not a Community Administrator experiences the Workshop Scheduler site as a user

workshop : a community conducts a workshop on a specific topic; a workshop can be presented multiple times (see workshop section below)

Workshop Administrator : the default Leader for a Workshop (see page 10); this is NOT the Community Administrator

workshop section : each presentation of a workshop is scheduled as a section with a specific meeting date and time; a workshop can have an unlimited number of sections


NOTE: Workshop Scheduler does not prevent scheduling workshops with date/time and location conflicts. It is the Community Administrator’s responsibility to schedule carefully.
