- Custom Formatting: This field allows you to format text with a variety of options.
- Next, specify the date and time of the event. If the event occurs on multiple days, you will enter details in the next step.
- “The event begins and ends on the same day”: Your event will always start and end on the same day. Please do not uncheck this selection as it will interfere with the processing of your request.
- Additional Time: You may add extra time for pre- or post-event activities. These activities do not include setup and breakdown, which are added as Custom Attributes later in the form.
- The date you specified in the previous section will appear in the calendar. For multi-day events, please use the calendar to select additional dates. A list of your selections will appear in a new window. You may adjust event hours for any date, if necessary.
- Type a specific location or use Public or Saved Searches to view available venues.
- Keyword Search: Select More Options to add additional parameters if you want to identify locations that include specific features, layouts or capacities.
- Hide Conflicts & Enforce Headcount: These options must always remain unchecked as they will significantly limit the list of available locations shown.

- Attach Files: Select Upload a File to attach a JPEG or PNG file from your computer to the form. You can include up to five files, which cannot exceed 25MB.

- Event Contact: The Contact Roles for this Event section is automatically completed based on your login credentials. You should only edit these details if you are submitting the event request on behalf of someone else.
- Event Comments: You may leave additional notes about your event for Event and Space Management staff in the Event Comments box.
- Save Event Draft: In the section After Saving This Event, you may choose the area of 25Live Pro where you want to be taken after saving the event form draft. Then, select Preview to view a draft of the form draft before saving or select Save to submit the form.
- The option to Cancel the event form is always available in the bottom right corner of the page, alongside options to Preview and Save. If you select Cancel, be aware that your selections will not save.
