How to add an online event?

When creating an online/virtual event, follow the usual steps for adding an event in 25Live, but pay special attention to the following 3 areas:

 1. Make sure that you take advantage of the Event Description for Events Calendar field to add all information pertinent to your event, particularly a link to how to access your virtual event.

If the location is not available, you will see the brown Request Available button. Click on it. (The ONL location can be shared between an indefinite number of events.)
