Learn how Request Processing is used and how to open a request in RelaisILL.
Request Processing is used by staff to
- loan a document
- assign a reject code
- assign a document supply code, or
- add an existing e-document.
Request Processing is available both through the Windows Login and the staff web.
To open a request in Request Processing, staff must know the request number. If the request number is not known, use Query Requests to retrieve it using alternate search criteria.
Note: Only requests at Scan or Update can be updated through Request Processing.
Open a request

- Enter the request number. This can be done by keying in the number then pressing enter or by wanding/reading the barcode on a Relais pickslip
