  9. You can run this process by searching for an existing Run Control ID or you can add a new value. Creating a Run Control ID that is relevant to the process may help you remember it for future use.


    Click the Add a New Value tab.

    Step 9
  10. A Run Control ID is an identifier that, when paired with your User ID, uniquely identifies the process you are running. The Run Control ID defines parameters that are used when a process is run. This ensures that when a process runs in the background, the system does not prompt you for additional values.


    Enter the desired information into the Run Control ID field. Enter

     a valid value

    Step 10
  11. Click the Add button.

    Step 11
  12. Use the Wait List Process page to enter the request parameters. These parameters will be used to define the processing rules and data to be included when the process is run.

    Step 12
  13. If you need to manually move students from the wait list to enrollment into a class, you must drop the student from the wait listed class then add the student into the class with the appropriate overrides selected.

    Step 13

    Step 14
  15. Enter the desired information into the Term field. Enter

     a valid value

    Step 15
  16. The wait list process switch instructs the process how to evaluate wait list candidates. Select Y to process all new wait list candidates eligible for wait list evaluation. Select A to process all wait list candidates eligible for wait list evaluation.


    For example, a class has five students on the wait list and three spaces become open in the class. When you run the wait list process, it fills the three spaces, and two students remain on the wait list. At this point the class is no longer new to the wait list process. The only way it would be evaluated again is if space opened in the class and you selected A as the Wait List Process Switch value.


    Click in the WaitList Process Switch field.

    Step 16
  17. Enter the desired information into the WaitList Process Switch field. Enter

     a valid value
