All cell sorter bookings require FMCF approval.
Generally, FMCF staff will process approvals within 24 hours. In most cases, approvals will be granted as long as the resource is available and the operator does not have a time constraint or conflict. If the operator does not approve your booking - you will receive a system generated deletion notice. Usually the operator will also send you a personal email indicating the reason for declining your booking request.
Reservations requiring approval will be yellow-highlighted (Approval Pending) in "My Reservations" on your home page and in the "Bookings" calendar until they have been approved. No one else will be permitted to book a resource during the "Approval Pending" period. Once approved, a reservation will change color (yellow to blue) in the "Bookings" calendar and you will receive an email confirmation. FMCF staff may be required to adjust your reservation request by shifting the time forward or back to accommodate their schedule. If this change is not acceptable to you, you may delete the reservation.
