The examples in this guide are for the SQUID Susceptometers Facility, but the procedure for scheduling the Cypher SPM is essentially the same.
To view the schedules, go to the appropriate URL as follows.
|SQUID Susceptometers Facility||
You will see a calendar for the current week, as in the following picture.
Using the links at the bottom of the calendar, you can choose to see the calendar a week at a time, which is the default, or a day, month or year at a time. You can also use them to navigate to particular dates.
Note that while the URLs for viewing the schedules have
cgi-pub in them, allowing viewing from anywhere
without a password, the URL for logging in has
cgi-bin in it, which invokes access restrictions which require
the use of a user name and password.
If you are logging in from somewhere other than the Physics-Astronomy section of the BPS Bldg. or the NSCL on the MSU campus, you will probably have to fill in a user name and password in a pop-up window in order to get access to this login page. Use the user name "cmpfacilities" and the password you receive from Dr. Loloee both for the pop-up window (if your location makes it necessary) and for the login page itself.
This will take you to the schedule selection page. Select the link for "SQUID" as in the example shown, or the link for "Cypher_SPM", depending on which schedule you want to add a reservation to.
You will now see a web page very similar to the schedule viewing page. The dates on this page, however, should be links.
Select the desired date, and you will go to the "Add New Event" page.
Type the name of the person reserving the device in the "Enter text for a new event" field.
Select a start time and an end time for your reservation.
Select the "Create Event" button.
The reservation should now be listed in the "Existing Events" section of the page. Select "View Calendar" at the top of the page.
You should now be back at the reservation page for the calendar, with your reservation now listed. Select the "(Logout)" link near the bottom of the page, and you are done.
