Reviewing and Verifying Room Preferences

After room preferences and requirements are set, you can review the individual course preferences, verify that the preferences are complete, and quantify these preferences. You can also run the Course Preferences report and the Course Preferences Summary report to assist in this task.


For detailed information about generating the Course Preferences and Course Preferences Summary reports and the information that is contained in each report, see Generating Academic Reports”.


Prior to reviewing or reporting on preferences, you can make the term unavailable to the academic units. See Enabling/Disabling a Term for Set Preferences Mode”.

To review and verify room preferences

1. On the EMS Academic Planning menu bar, click Academic Planning > Courses > Academic Browser. The Academic Browser opens.

2. If needed, open the Filter tab. 


3. On the Domain dropdown list, select the appropriate domain and on the Term dropdown list, select the appropriate term.

4. Set any other criteria (academic unit, subject, and so on) as needed to provide assistance in locating the courses for which you want to review preferences and requirements, and then click Get Data. The courses that meet your search criteria are displayed on the Results tab.


To identify preferences and requirements for a Basic search, you should set Preferences Exist to Yes. For an Advanced search, you should select the Preferences Exist field (a Course Dates level field), and set the Preferences Exist filter to Yes.
