Guidelines for Scheduling an IVN Public Room
Here are the guidelines to follow when scheduling an event with the IVN Scheduler or using a public IVN room located on any ND University System campus:

  • Deadline for scheduling: minimum of 2 business days prior to the event.
  • A schedule request form or change form must be submitted to the IVN Scheduler for all event requests, changes, or cancellations. Phone requests will not be accepted.
  • Events in IVN Public Rooms will start at the top of the hour and end 10 minutes before the hour. A 10 minute window between events is required. Other time periods may be allowed if available.
  • Deadline changes or cancellations: minimum of 2 business days prior to the event. Changes made within those two business days cannot be guaranteed and will be accommodated on a best effort basis.
  • Requests (except for credit classes) will be scheduled within 2 business days and a confirmation is sent to the person requesting the event.
  • Number of sites within a connection: 6-7 is recommended for quality of interaction, 12 is the maximum number of sites for an event.

Confirmations for events scheduled with IVN will be e-mailed to the person requesting the event. The person requesting the event should then notify the other sites involved.
