A. Show name: In Column A, you will need to enter in the Internal Name of your show. This is the name that only shows up in the system or the short name of the show. 

B. Template Name: In Column B, you will need to enter the name of the template that you created for the show. 

C. Date TBD: If the dates of your show have not yet been finalized, you can type "TRUE" in Column C. If they are finalized, and you want them to appear online, make sure the column says FALSE. 

D. Start Date: In Column D, you will need to enter the start date and time of the showing. 

E. Duration: Enter the duration of the show in Column E. Please note that the duration needs to be entered in minutes. 

F. Show Time with Date: If you wish for the time and date of the show to appear on the website, type "TRUE" in the fields in Column F. 

G. Show End Date: If your organization publishes the end date time on their website, make sure that you enter "TRUE" in Column G

H. Event ID: The event ID will be generated by Agile once you Import the showings. 50 character limit. 

 

6. Once you have filled out the Import spreadsheet, you need to go back into Agile Administration and back into the Blue Folder with your shows.
