You can use [CAS NAME] to approve or reject [trainee] activities and complete forms and evaluations.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


Submit Activity Approvals

I have two supervisor accounts with two different email addresses. Can I merge them?

Yes. Contact customer service to request a merge.


I created my [CAS NAME] account; however, I can't see all of my [trainee]s in my account.

You'll only see [trainee]s once a [trainee] sends you their first approval request or you receive a form or evaluation for them.

I've received a form or evaluation; however, I can't complete my section.

If you have multiple roles in [CAS NAME], make sure you are logged in under the correct role. If you still can't complete the section, contact the institutional administrator or customer service to see if there is an error with the form.


My [trainee] says they submitted activity approvals to me, but I don't see any to approve in [CAS NAME], nor have I received an email.

First, confirm with the [trainee] that they submitted the activity for approval. The activity will have a Submitted approval status in [CAS NAME] under their account.

If the activity is in the correct status, then confirm with the [trainee] that they have you listed as their supervisor. If they have the incorrect supervisor listed, they can contact customer service to make this change and retract previously sent activities. If you are listed as the supervisor, then you can contact customer service.
