New app "Apply for authorizations"

From Wednesday, 10.07., a new "Apply for authorizations" tile will be available in the User Portal (UP). With this digital form, which is currently only available in German, you can request authorizations in UP for yourself and for third parties. If you cannot access the form directly via the tile, you can do so via "Prozess starten" in the left-hand menu and then by clicking on "Starte Prozess" in the line for user portal authorization.

Once the request has been submitted, the form goes through a digital workflow in which the person for whom the authorizations are requested is the first to approve the request, followed by the responsible manager (L3/L2/L1, for example head of a institute or a an appointed professor).

The new digital process replaces the previously used PDF forms and offers numerous advantages:

  • Support when completing the form: Users are guided through the form and, for example, are only given the valid account assignment elements (cost center, PSP elements) to choose from depending on the information provided
  • Simpler approval: Approvers receive a notification email and can approve the request via a link. Signatures or digital signatures are no longer required.
  • Transparent and traceable process: The responsible line manager is automatically determined from the centrally stored information in the organizational management and the funds center plan. Applicants can track the status of the approval process.

You can find more information about the form and the various authorizations that can be applied for here https://www.scc.kit.edu/dienste/12778.php
