Instrument Use Reporting
Departmental instruments that do not require advance reservations before use nonetheless do require that users
report the amount of time used for billing purposes. Billable instrument time is reported using a
web-based reporting system. A list of the instruments requiring the reporting of time used, along with links to
the reporting pages, is available on the right sidebar of this page.
User Names, Passwords, and Budgets
now uses a UWNetID for login authentication. When prompted to log in while
making a reservation, use your UWNetID as the "User Name".
For the "Password", you will use your UWNetID password. The list of budgets available on your account is the same as that available
when using the photocopy machines or the stockroom.
If your UWNetID / Password does not allow you to login to the reservation system, please contact the Chemistry Purchasing and Accounting office (Bagley 109). Likewise, if you need to
have a budget added to your user name, please contact the Purchasing and Accounting office.
Whenever you attempt to make a reservation, or modify an exiting reservation, the system will prompt you to login
if you have not already done so. The login will expire after five minutes if there is no user activity. You can
also logout by using the "logout" link found on the each of the reservation pages, or by simply exiting
