UK Campus Events Platform | About & FAQ

How does EMS sends information to Localist

Currently there is a script that runs on a nightly basis which generates a CSV from the event pool from EMS. Localist creates new and updates existing events as entries are pulled from the file each refresh. The feed from EMS bypasses any pending authorization and is immediately uploaded to the public calendar, provided the visibility of events are set to public.

Why don't I see my event on the platform?

All events listed / published on the platform are automatically brought over from EMS approved submissions. New events can be submitted through or BBNvolved.

How often are events updated?

Events are updated from their respective feeds nightly.

What is the cancellation process?

The current process is to rename events with “Cancelled -” which is updated with the nightly feed. This allows your guests to see that your event has been canceled.

What is the process for Building name changes or other updates?
