Editing Requirements

Both types of requirements allows you to edit the list or item with the following actions:

  • Manually reorder items
  • The Id number for each item is listed
  • Edit the Name of the item
  • Check or uncheck the Active status
  • The Abridged checkbox controls if the item is only visible on an abridged list for users with limited permissions
  • "Other" requirement type only: Check or uncheck an option to Allow Quantity to be displayed on the Event Form
  • Set Notification Policy (see more detail below)
  • View the Usage of the item in events, searches, etc.
  • Delete the item (if it is not being used)
  • Force Delete the item (even if it's being used) and remove all references (available only to Administrators in the (-1) security group)

Notification Policy

Both requirement types have an additional editing option for setting notification policy. You can define a notification policy based on a particular event requirement. When a user creates an event with that requirement, the notification is automatically sent to the 25Live Task List of the user(s) specified in the notification policy.

Example: You could define a notification policy that sends an "Information Only" notification to the task list of the head of campus security every time an event is created with an alcohol permit requirement.

  • The number of DaysHours, and Minutes of the event creation date that approval is required within
  • The ability to Add Contact for the policy
