Requesting Access to Tiles

Tiles are granted based on security roles ( see the list of tiles and roles ). For many tiles this happens automatically based on your employment status. For others, the security role must be requested.

You CANNOT request an individual tile. Rather, you must request the relevant security role, and will receive all related tiles.
