1. Search for events
Events will be available in the Lecturecast Scheduler when a room booking has been made and confirmed in CMIS

If a room booking in CMIS is for an event > 4 hours duration, the event record in the Lecturecast Scheduler will be highlighted
in red and the status will be 'nonbookable'. To schedule recordings for these events you will need to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
