An organization is the group, department, or entity that is responsible for an event.  

To create an organization:

On the Details tab: 

Organizations - Main Tab

  • Enter the Name of the new organization.
  • Enter the Address, City, State, Zip Code, and Phone.
  • Select the Organization Type, if appropriate. Organization types are used to categorize longer lists of organizations into logical groupings (e.g., Faculty, Student Groups, External).

Requestable Organizations

By default, a user can only make requests on behalf of organizations that they are specifically associated with. If you prefer, you can loosen this restriction and make any or all organizations available for any user making a new request by setting the Requestable flag on the organization.

To mark an organization as requestable:

  1. From the list of organizations, check the box next to the organization. You can select more than one organization for this operation.
