» Creating an Event in 25Live

When creating an event request 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 Event Request process for your reference.

1) You can login into 25Live from any computer, mobile device or tablet.  Firefox, Chrome, and Safari browsers 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 submit an event request. 

2) From the 25Live homepage, on the top right click the “Event Form” button. This will launch the event request submission form. 

3) Event Name and Event Title: is used for 25Live system identification and is not visible to the public. 40 characters max. 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.” Event Title is pulled to your public calendar listing if you indicate "public" as the Event Type. 120 characters max.

4) Event Type: The Event Type allows you to choose if your event is “public” or “private.” If you choose public, you are requesting that your event appear on the public events calendar. 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 request 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  public events calendar.  You can also add your organization as a favorite, click on the star next to your organization.
