Why should I use 25Live? Can I just call the room owner to reserve a space?
It is mandatory to use 25Live and is the only acceptable and recognized method for scheduling events on campus. Using 25Live is a very efficient way of finding an available space for your event. Most staff do not immediately know who owns the room they would like to reserve and the person you are calling may be on vacation. The system is set up to include a full inventory of available spaces of all types – worship, meeting, grounds, classrooms, etc. Not only is an inventory available but the system keeps track of availability of those spaces (as maintained by individual owners of space) therefore allowing you to find a space available with just a few clicks.
I found available space, but 25Live told me I’m not allowed to schedule events. Why?

Why does 25Live seem to be running so slowly?
Although many people think of it as "just another website", 25Live is a complex and full featured application that has the potential to be accessed by thousands of people at one time. Speeds can vary based on the speed of your network connection, available band and the number of users on the system and a number of other factors. Additionally, the data in 25Live changes almost constantly. Using the system involves searching thousands of location, resource, organization, contact and event records to deliver the most accurate information in real time. That being said, performance enhancements and adjustments are being made with every new release.
