Reminder: Security Permissions

What you can see and do in this application depends on the security permissions associated with your 25Live user account. In addition, if your user does not have permission to view Contacts (Basic 7.0 in Series25 Group Administration) the default scheduler for a location may not be visible. If you can't access something you think you should be able to, contact your 25Live Administrator.

  • List
  • Availability (Daily)
  • Availability (Weekly)
  • Calendar
  • Audit Trail

Each sub-section has controls for:

      • Daily View: Dates are displayed, spanning 30 days from the selected date
      • Weekly View: Hours are displayed for each day of the week of the selected date

      • Weekly View: Each column shows a day of the week containing the selected date, beginning with the preceding Sunday
        • Example: If you choose Tuesday, the 3rd, the week displays beginning with Sunday, the 1st
        • The current date is highlighted

Availability grids have the ability to display Drafts/Requested Reservations/Preferences on the grid. To view, use the Include Requested checkbox in the toolbar at the top of the grid.

The grid uses color codes to indicate availability and the status of events. Use the Legend button to view a guide to either the default or custom colors. Default colors include:

    • Blank/White:  Available
    • Gray:  Closed hours, based on the location's open/closed hours
    • Black:  A blackout hour
    • Green:  A normal event with occurrence start and end times
    • Light green:  Setup/pre-event or post-event/takedown time before and/or after an event time
    • Orange/Beige:  Location unavailable due to a relationship with another location
    • Purple/Gray Slashes:  Pending location reservation

Color coded availability grid example
Image: In the above example, the “Northwest Art Awards” event is scheduled from 3:00pm - 5:00pm, shown in green, but the event also has setup/pre-event time and post-event/takedown time, shown in light green. Another event that day is shown in Orange, indicating the event’s location is unavailable.

The availability grid also allows you to create events in the displayed location for specific hours/days by using the create event Create event icon icon in available grid squares. Users will see a warning if they attempt to create an event in the past.

If your institution instance has Express Scheduling set up, using the create event Create event icon icon for any configured location will bring up the Express Scheduling form for quick event creation. Use the Open in Form button to use the Event Form to create you event instead.

Tip: Administrators Can Set Custom Colors
