Navigating to O-1 Requests Settings
Navigate to O-1 Requests from Scholar Admin > Site Settings.
Settings are divided into Site Settings, H-1B Request Settings, O-1 Request Settings, J-1 Request Settings, and Import Data. On the O-1 Request Settings tab, there are four sections for configuration: Tab Configuration, O-1 Expiration Configurations, Document Configurations, and Program Configurations.
The first two sections, Tab Configurations and O-1 Expiration Configurations, determine who can access information in the Scholar's profile and receive alerts about Scholars who are coming up on their end dates.
In the Tab Configurations, there is the option to allow O-1 Information tab visible to the department admin. Your office's practices will guide this content, which populates the O-1 Information tab in the scholar's profile.
O-1 Expiration Configurations
In O-1 Expiration Configurations, you can determine when to notify and whom to notify when a scholar's O-1 status will expire. Notification is sent via an alert email message configured in Process > Notifications. You can select sixty or thirty days in advance of the expiration date, or a fixed custom date (for all O-1 scholars). For custom dates, you can save up to 4 custom number of days out. These can be any length of days.
NOTE: The O-1 Expiration Configuration is also the determination for the Warning icon to appear on a scholar's card in the Dashboard.
The Document Configurations section determines if the Department Admin and/or Scholar have access to each type of document listed under Category Name, including USCIS forms. By checking the box under Department Admin or Scholar, you will provide these users access to the corresponding category name.
Important: Confirm your changes each time you make a change by clicking the Update button.
The last tab in the O-1 Request Settings tab is the Program Configuration. This section will display the Employment Based Objective that is attached to each Scholar Program.
