Bronco Fix-It for Classrooms

A new online service from WMU’s Physical Plant gives instructors one place to go for all classroom issues.  Beginning June 28th, with the start of the Summer II 2007 session, instructors should see http://broncofixit.pp.wmich.edu/classroom.html  for classroom related problems and concerns. This site contains information on who to contact for:

  • A maintenance emergency
  • A problem with classroom technology
  • A locked classroom
  • Other maintenance requests

Phone numbers, which will always be answered by a person, are provided in case of maintenance emergencies or a locked classroom.  Maintenance emergencies are conditions such as:  no power, noisy heating unit, water flooding, etc.

Phone numbers for assistance with classroom technology issues are also included.

Other non-emergency maintenance requests, including such issues as insufficient number of chairs, broken tables or chairs, burned out light bulbs, etc., can be reported using the online form found on this site.  Follow the directions on this site to identify the building, the room, and the issue.  Instructors reporting maintenance issues will receive a confirmation email, as well as notification when the work has been completed.  In addition, instructors can track the status of all reported issues through this site.  The Physical Plan Service Center will prioritize all reported issues and will work with maintenance to expedite all repairs.

A poster has been placed in each classroom providing appropriate phone numbers as well as this the address for this website. A link to the website will be placed on the Registrar’s site.

Thanks to the staff of the Physical Plant for launching this new service!

SIS– job submission errors

If you experience trouble when you run a job submission in SIS (i.e., SFRSCHD, SFRSLST) and one of the following scenarios happens, contact your security administrator, explain the situation, and provide your Bronco NetID. Your security level needs to be raised to 2 sessions.

  • Scenario 1: You enter all the parameters, save the request to submit it. Then you go to Options>View Output. When the form comes up and you double-click on the job number, it does not appear in the list.
  • Scenario 2: You enter all the parameters, save the request to submit it. Then you go to Options>View Output. You get a dialogue box that states that no data exists for this job.
