Approving Items for Submission
There are two types of accounts in FDLP eXchange- User Accounts and Administrator Accounts (see Tip 19). Only items entered by an Administrator go directly into Regional Review. Anything entered by a User must first be approved by an administrator.
To do this, administrators must be signed in to their own accounts. Under Library Account, there will be an option to Approve Items for Submission.
You can also do this from the Dashboard by selecting Submit Items for Review.
You will get a list of all items that have been submitted by your library’s users. From here, you can choose to submit the items, edit them, or delete them. This can be done item-by-item, and submitting or deleting can also be done in bulk.
There are a two important things to remember about Approving Items for Submission.
First, items do not enter the process until they have been submitted by an administrator. Nothing can be requested, passed on or disallowed by the regional until it has been submitted. This can increase weeding time, so it is important for administrators to regularly check and submit items input by users.
Second, it is not required that libraries have User Accounts, and multiple Administrator Accounts are avaiable. Limiting User Accounts to those staff members who need more supervision can save you a lot of time.
