Note: Use of Internet Explorer Is No Longer Officially Supported

Series25 no longer officially supports the use of Internet Explorer. Please use Microsoft Edge, which is the new default and recommended browser for Windows, or one of the other supported browsers. For information on how to change your default browser, please see the Microsoft Support site. See Series25 Technical Specifications for a complete list of supported browsers.

You Can Use Multiple Browser Tabs

This version of 25Live allows for multitasking in multiple browser tabs. You can also open events, locations, resources, reports, and any other objects in multiple browser tabs for convenience.

Navigate with sections rather than tabsImage: Sections across the top of views can be opened in multiple browser tabs, as can different events, locations, etc.

25Live uses convenient sections across the top of views rather than in-application tabs, and you can also keep different sections of the same view open in other browser tabs without danger of data loss.

Event Details on mobileImage: The tab views are available from a dropdown menu on narrow, mobile views.

In 25Live, you may also open new browser tabs using middle-click (Windows) or CTRL-click (MacOS).

Additional Tips to Get More Out of 25Live

  • Take advantage of search
    • With three search modes (Quick, SeriesQL, and Advanced), it's often faster to search for what you need rather than to browse.
  • Use the Recently Viewed dropdown menu
    • Near the top navigation bar's search box is a recently viewed dropdown menu that will show objects you have viewed within the current session.
  • Expand panels
    • Look for the chevron symbol Chevron symbol in panels that indicates content that can expand or collapse.
  • Look for drag-and-drop features
    • Many areas of 25Live, such as the home dashboard and availability views provide opportunities to quickly drag and drop objects where you need them
  • Utilize inline editing
