This page is a guide to event fields in 25Live and how they match up to the various data points in your student information system.

Field in 25LiveIn Your SIS
Event Name

An event's name is a combination of several fields:

  1. Always includes the subject/department code, the course number, and the section number. (e.g. MATH 200 01)
  2. If enabled, includes course record number and term code from the SIS
  3. If enabled, adds the following codes when appropriate:
    1. "MMP" if the section has multiple meeting patterns
    2. "XL" if sections are cross-listed in your SIS
    3. "CS" if sections are combined in Campus Solutions
    4. "BG" if sections are bound in LYNX groups
    5. "OG" if sections are in overlapping groups determined by LYNX
    6. "BTB" if sections are bound with back-to-back binding
Event Title

This depends on SIS type:

  • Campus Solutions: Course Title
  • Banner: Course Title or Section Short Title
  • Colleague: Section Short Title
  • Other: Section Title
Event Type

Typically all sections have the same type, or else it is determined by section type or campus code.

If sections have different types, this is determined by translation rules in LYNX.

OrganizationAn event's organization is based on either a section's department code or subject code, then passed through translation rules in LYNX.
SchedulerThese contact roles are determined by the system integration between LYNX and 25Live.

If enabled, the instructor from the SIS is matched to a contact record in 25Live based on their email address.

Tiebreakers between multiple instructors on a section are handled by translation rules.

DescriptionThe description contains all instructor names, even if they are not added as contact roles.
Segment Name

This is only visible in 25Live if an event has multiple meeting patterns. It includes the following:

  • Days of week (e.g. MWF)
  • Start/end time in 24-hour format (e.g. 0815-0920)
  • Meeting pattern type (e.g. LEC)
  • First meeting date (e.g. 01/06)
Expected Headcount

Can be configured to any of the following, depending on SIS type:

  • Maximum enrollment
  • Requested room capacity (Campus Solutions, Colleague)
  • Projected enrollment (Banner, Workday)
Registered HeadcountDisplays the number of registered students
Bound Headcount

When sections are cross-listed, combined, or otherwise bound, both expected and registered headcount can be any of the following:

  • Use the headcount defined for the group of sections in the SIS
  • Sum the headcounts of all sections in the group and use the total for each individual section
  • Each section keeps its own headcount

Locations in 25Live are matched to the SIS based on one of the following:

  • Facility ID
  • Building code and room code, divided by a separator (such as a space)
Location Preferences

Requirements for the Optimizer are based on:

  • Banner: Room Attribute Descriptions
  • Campus Solutions: Room Characteristic Descriptions
  • Colleague: Classroom Equipment Codes
Categories and Custom AttributesMany LYNX configurations add categories or custom attributes to an event in 25Live based on SIS data, including term codes, campus codes, and more.
