Subject: 25Live Scheduling Software News
Last month we sent an email announcing a new scheduling software called 25Live that will be going live later this year. You also may have read about it in April’s edition of the ConnectCarolina Newsletter. As a reminder, 25Live will be replacing the current scheduling systems Ad Astra, which is used by the University Registrar for classroom scheduling, and EMS, which is used by the Carolina Union for event scheduling. Since our initial communication, we’ve received a lot of interest and questions about 25Live and while we’re still working out some details, we want to share what we know now.
We are implementing 25Live starting with two groups. The Carolina Union, and anyone currently using the instance of EMS supported by the Carolina Union, will start using 25Live later this summer. The University Registrar, and anyone else using Ad Astra to schedule classrooms, will start using 25Live in October. We know 25Live can be a benefit to other units, but we want to make sure the tool is stable before we make it available to other areas. When the onboarding process has been determined, we’ll share that information with you.
Another important point to know about the 25Live software is that it is a scheduling tool only, and not a registration tool. This means you can use it to reserve a space for an event, but participants won’t be able to register for that event using 25Live. You’ll need a separate tool to handle participant registrations.
We are planning to hold our first Campus Partners meeting soon where we’ll share a timeline of the project, give you a sneak peek of the software, and talk through how you can engage in this project. We’ll also leave plenty of time to answer any questions you may have. Keep an eye out for the invitation coming soon.
We hope you are staying safe and healthy,
The 25Live Project Team
