Q: Can Landing Pages be styled differently?
A: Each Localist license includes only one brand so landing pages will be styled just like any other results page on the calendar.
Q: How should Admins communicate Place closings?
A: Some organizations have created event listings for closings. If it is a major closing that will have a wide effect, such as the campus library being closed, then it would make sense to leave it as a regular listing. However, if it is a smaller closing or modified hours instance then we suggest checking off “venue page only” on the event as to reduce clutter on the main calendar. Since hours of operation or specific notes can be added to Place Pages, event + closing listings should only be used in isolated or extraordinary cases.
Q: Should Place Pages be made for a room?
A: We recommend only making Place Pages for entire buildings that have an established address. If an event is happening in a room with a title, the room field accepts any text.
