Task 1: Create a test request

In order to test out the various features in NextRequest you will need to first create a test request. It is important when creating a test request to use a different email address than the one associated with your existing NextRequest account. We recommend using a personal email or a second work address if you have one.

Steps to submit a test request:

  1. Go to your agency’s NextRequest portal
  2. If​ ​you​ ​are​ ​currently​ ​Signed​ ​In,​ ​click​ ​the​ ​Sign​ ​Out​ ​link​ ​in​ ​the​ ​upper​ ​right
  3. Click the MAKE REQUEST button in the top left
  4. Enter request description
  5. If your portal is set up to have departments, select your own department in the ‘Departments’ field
  6. Enter a email address for the requester (different from your NextRequest account email)
  7. OPTIONAL: Select a date received (if not today) and select the format the request was received in (phone, email, web, in person, fax).
  8. Click the MAKE REQUEST button
