The TUphone approved person of a structural element (an organisational unit) represents the contact person in all TUphone areas for TU.it. Within their institute, they coordinate the TUphone requests of all employees, submit them to TU.it by means of inputs in a predefined Interface and advises or approves the requests made by the employees.

The entry of the employee in the TISS address book must be opened by the head of the structural element. Via "Change data", you can select and save the additional function "TUphone Authorised User" as the head. Thus, this employee has the right to TUphone administration of their entire structural element (their entire organisational unit). However, they do not have the right to delegate this TUphone approval authorisation to other employees. That can only be done by the head. The head can also withdraw the TUphone approval authorisation from an employee (or himself) In the same way.

However, before these applications are processed by TU.it employees, they must be approved (released) by the TUphone approved person of the corresponding organizational unit.

Each TUphone approved person has the opportunity to view all GSM telephone charge accounts for which he has been granted authorization. A TUphone approved person can request new accounts for his organizational unit.
