Creating an Event Request
Recommended browsers for 25Live are Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. “Sign In” will automatically refer you to WPConnect for your normal login and password.
1) If the initial screen is in Calendar mode, click the tab on the right for Dashboard or the tab for Event Wizard next to the Home tab.
2) Click the “Create an Event” button on the home dashboard. This will bring you to the Event Wizard which is 25Live’s built-in event scheduling request form.
- Note: If you change the view from Dashboard to Calendar (upper right tabs) and exit 25Live, you will need to reselect the dashboard tab or select the Event Wizard tab (upper left tabs) upon next sign-in to access “Create an Event”. 25Live pages are “sticky”, meaning when the view is changed 25Live remembers that as a preference and will open that page the same way next time.
3) Enter the Event Information - * are required fields
Event Name – EX: New Scholars History Conference
