We have a lot of confusion from requesters regarding the approval process for their requests and it comes from the language in the schedule routing emails they receive.
Looking at an example email here is what they see after our site administrators giver their approval:
"Subject: Your request has been routed...
FS Schedule ID: 5201
Event Title: ...
Schedule State: Inactive
Our site administrators only responsibility is to check for conflicts with their school's calendars. If there isn't then they "approve". The authority to grant access to any district facility only begins with them but it's certainly not approved. To a layman reading the Routing emails it's easy to assume your event was approved after simply one state.
May I suggest that the "Status:" line in the Routing emails either read "Pending Approval" until it is "Activated" or simply not appear at all until it is "Activated"?
