Does the software harness the power of real-time, cloud-based processing to reduce processing times? Be sure the software is accessible anywhere, anytime from desktop, tablet or phone.

Comprehensive

Is an additional module and/or cost required for the software to handle community group Requests? Software should accommodate district and community needs without having to pay extra.

Affordable

Is the application affordable and is it subject to annual price increases? Check software pricing policy including determining when subscription costs were last increased and by how much.

New Features

Enter Facility Requests down to the minute
(1/29/2018) ML Schedules™ K12 Facility Request Software now allows users to enter requests in one-minute intervals.

While the software's Time filters still display in 15-minute increments, users can double-click on the field to enter the desired time in minutes. When making requests, the software will automatically match the Minutes field End Time with the value entered in the Start Time field.

For example, if as user enters 11:17am as the request Start Time, the software will pick up the "17" value and use it for the request's End Time (e.g., 11:47am).

Thanks to the many subscribing school districts that provided valuable input for this new feature.

Here’s what school districts around the USA are saying…

“MLSchedules™ Software has streamlined the building use request process for our district. Requests that used to take minutes to process now take seconds."
