You can put in a longer Event Description in the text box.


Select the actual starting Event Date and Time for the event.



Normally, This event begins and ends on the same day will be check marked.

If an event is on multiple days and no one may enter the room during that whole time period, including overnight, the check mark should be removed from the first occurrence begins and ends on the same day.


Only when an event is on multiple days and no one may enter the room during that whole time period, including overnight, should the event end date be different from the event start date.

Click on Additional time to see those options.


Setup and pre-event times are added together to get the total amount of time required before the event.

Post-event and takedown times are added together to the total amount of time required after the event.

This means that the location cannot be reserved from the beginning of the setup-pre-event time through the end of the post-event-takedown time – it is already considered to be reserved during those times.

For non-repeating events, skip down to Locations.

For repeating events, click the Repeating Pattern button.


Scroll down and select the desired pattern from the drop-down patterns.

Or type in part of a location in the Search Locations box and click the Search button.

The list of matching locations will open up.

Starred Locations that do not show up in your started locations list either have a conflict or do not meet the head count requirement.  You can uncheck the boxes to turn off checking those criteria.


To select a location, click the Reserve button.


The reserved location will appear below the Location Search box.


You can collapse the Location Search box when done selecting locations to make the screen easier to read.
