To enter a new room/event reservation, click the "Create an Event" button on the home page. This will bring you to the Event Request Form which will walk you through entering your requests step by step. As you're completing the form, you'll notice helpful hints along the right hand side of the page. Required fields are marked with a red asterisk.
Enter the Program Name which is the overarching title for a group or series of events or the Departmental or Organization Name. Event title is the field that will display on public calendars so be sure to review for accuracy, correct punctuation, and grammar. Choose the event type from the drop down menu. When requesting an academic classroom space, be sure to select an event type that begins with Academic Space. Select a sponsoring organization and co-sponsoring organization from the drop down menu. You can also type the name into the search bar. Click "Next."
Enter the maximum anticipated headcount for setup and catering. You can choose to enter an event description to appear on the campus calendar.
In this example we are only going to be requesting a location for one date so we will click on No, this event has only one occurrence.
Enter your start date, start time, end date, end time. It is important to note that the earliest date you can request a location is two business days. For setup time and pre-event time, please read the description to the right of these fields to determine how much setup, pre-event, and post-event time your event will require. (2:02) To improve the likelihood of your request being approved, it's important to include the appropriate setup, pre-event, and post-event time when completing your request form. Failure to include this time could result in your request being denied due to a time conflict with a surrounding event.
Next, you will select the location you wish to request. Make sure that you have the "Show Only My Authorized Locations That Have No Time Conflicts" and the "Enforce Headcount" boxes checked. Next click search by location name, type in the name of the location and hit enter. Click on the location you wish to request. Once selected, the location will appear in the bottom right corner of your screen.
To adjust the setup of the space, click on the "View and Modify Occurrences" link underneath the location and adjust the layout and attendance then click save changes.
The Resources section allows you to request various resources for your event such as catering, pianos, rolling bulletin boards, and much more. You can search by resource name, click on the resource you wish to request, and then click on View and Modify Occurrences to adjust the quantity. It is important to note that Media Services must be requested via the departmental forms website. If you do not need to request any resources, simply click "Next" to move on to the next screen.
Next you will select the contacts for your event. The requester contact role is used to identify the organizer of the event or representative from the organization responsible for the event. The scheduler contact role is used to identify the person entering the information into 25Live.
Please check the box for all that apply in requirements section.
Use the comments field to provide additional instructions or event information. This information is only viewable by the scheduler, requestor, and any service providers or approvers of locations and resources assigned to this event. Any information listed in the Confirmation Notes section will appear at the top of your event confirmation.
Finally, review the terms and conditions carefully to ensure that your request follow’s the college’s scheduling policies. Click “I Agree,” and then click “Save.”
It is important to remember that this form serves a request only. You will receive a confirmation from the location scheduler when your request has been approved. Please do not begin publicizing your event until you have received a confirmation from the location scheduler.
To check on the status of your event, you can click the Events in which you are the Requestor.
This will bring up a list of all your events. You can look in the “State” Column to see if your event is still listed as “Tentative” or if it is listed as “Confirmed.” Once your event state is listed as “Confirmed” an e-mail confirmation should be on its way to your Muhlenberg inbox if you haven’t already received it.
