PermitManager Administrators have permissions to be able to mark certain sections of permits as "not required". This would normally be done if a particular section does not apply to that particular permit.
The Not Required button will be shown next to any fields where this option is available:
After making a section "Not Required", the corresponding traffic light on the left of the list will grey-out to show it is irrelevant, and that section will now count as being "complete":
The applicant will become unable to supply data for those sections (except for Prerequisite documents, where they will still have the option to upload responses). Please also note that marking a section as "Not Required" cannot be undone. However if this is done mistakenly, you can still gather information from the applicant using the Message function; they can provide ad-hoc documents or replies here if required.
Admins will be unable to set a section as "Not Required" if the applicant has already supplied relevant data for those sections. All information provided should be included in the consideration of their application.
Below are some examples for when a permit section might be considered Not Required:
- Duration: Could be internal council works that will be over quickly, or a minor road.
- Contacts: Could be minor excavation, or a small job being done by the applicant themselves.
- Prerequisites: Could be internal council works where no documentation is required.
- Conditions: Could be internal council works.
- Traffic Management: Could be minor works on road verge, so no traffic impacted.
- Payment: Could be internal council works; customer may have an external account set up with your organisation already for ongoing works; charity event where you decide to not charge.
