An Event is simply something that happens in a certain Region during a specified time period (i.e. with a start and end time). For example at a music festival an artist set on a named stage constitutes an Event. At a conference it could be a key note speaker session or a seminar - again at a specified location.

Bulk Upload

The quickest way to get Events into Colocator is by collating them in a CSV file, following this format, each event being a row with the folowing columns: 

event_name,region_name,start_date,start_time,end_date,end_time

Sample Event 1,Sample Region 1,26/06/2017,14:00,26/06/2017,15:30

Sample Event 2,Sample Region 2,27/06/2017,23:00,28/06/2017,00:30

Where:

  • event­_name is the artist name (e.g. Robbie Williams) 
  • region_name is the stage name (e.g. Main Stage)
  • start_date, end-date will be the same date unless the artist set spans midnight (as per the second sample event)

Note that:

  • start_time and end_time are in local time
  • Commas within the event­_name text and region_name text are not allowed

Time zone should also be provided.

It is essential that the region_name is indentical to the name of the corresponding region drawn up in Colocator (e.g. the audience area for a stage).

Once you have the CSV file ready please email it to your Crowd Connected contact who will ensure it is uploaded for you.
