Adding Approval ID's in OSM
For any applicant who needs an additional approval ID, check with the hiring coordinator prior to making changes. For individuals who are already online instructors, use the Employees tab under People in OSM. Candidates who are not yet employed by BYU-Idaho Online need to be searched in Applicant Approvals under the People tab. Open up their profile and then click on their Name under Applicant Detail.
Once you have located the correct profile, find the Approved Courses tab. From there, enter the Approval Status and specify the course. Click Add Approval and the course will be added to their profile with the correct status.
