Creating an Event in 25Live

When creating an event in 25Live you are accomplishing a few tasks: room scheduling, resources reservation and submission to the public calendar. Below is a quick rundown of the ‘Create an Event’ process for your reference.

Recently, the 25Live system was updated and the Create an Event form changed slightly. To learn more about the changes please see our announcement post on the subject.

1) You can login into the 25Live system from any computer. Firefox and Chrome browsers on a desktop computer are preferred.

Please note: The system will let you login with your Chapman credentials, but until you’ve gone through training and receive permissions, you will not be able to create an event.

2) From the homepage, click the “Create an Event” button. This will launch the event request submission form. Screen Shot 2015-03-25 at 8.26.15 PM

For more information on ‘Cancel Existing Event’, visit the Cancel an Event page.

3) Event Name and Event Title: In the system there are two options for event identification. As noted the Event Name is purely internal for identification. This can be a truncated version of your official title. The Event Title is the full name of the event that will appear on the event calendar if you wish to publicize. In this area you must be more descriptive than “meeting” or “workshop.”

This will not only give you a few different options on the form itself to help classify your event to the public, it will also pull your information into an event listing that you can update. If you choose Private, you will be able to reserve a room and services, but it will be hidden from the public.

5) Primary and Additional Organizations: This option is to attach your organization’s name to an event as the host. The Primary Org is required while all additional are optional. You can add as many additional orgs. as you need. This information is pulled to the new public events calendar.

The Pre-event and Post-event options are for you to build time into the schedule for the setup/takedown or additional time needed for pre and post event happenings.  The setup and takedown times will not show on the new public events calendar.

Please Note: Requests must be made no later than five days from the event. This is to respect the Event Scheduling and resources departments setup times.
