Pending Queue

The Pending Queue is where all event submissions by users who are not Event Admins or Trusted Users will be sent to await approval by an Event Admin before they are posted to the calendar.

Submission Workflow

Approving a Submitted Event

In the Admin Dashboard:

1. Navigate via Events > Pending

2. Click on the event Name to view the event

3. Make any desired changes

4. Check Approved at the top of the form

5. Save Changes


1. Navigate via Events > Pending

2. Click Approve or Reject

  • Approve: Selecting this button will approve the event and it will be immediately posted to the calendar.

  • Reject: Clicking this button pops up a message form to send to the submitter to explain why an event has been rejected. A rejection message is not required to reject an event.


An Event Admin has the ability to focus the events they are approving by utilizing the options in the Refine Results section on the right side of the page.

Pending Digest

Every day at 4PM EST, Localist sends a reminder with a list of all events awaiting approval in the Pending Queue to the specified recipients in the Pending Digest Email field in Global Options. The pending digest includes all or nothing–it does not take into account Allowed or Excluded permissions on a user’s account. However, when restricted users navigate to the pending queue, the events they see are limited by their permissions. The digest also includes feed status updates.

To add an email to this list, navigate via Settings > Global Options in your Admin Dashboard. The Pending Digest Email field appear under Contact. There is no limit as to how many emails can receive the digest.
