|Platform Display Name
|This is the name that is displayed in breadcrumb links, feed data, emails and notifications for the platform.
|This will be used in the footer of all notification emails to prevent messages from being directed to spam folders.
|This can be any one email address. There is a Contact Us link on the event submission form and all inquiries from that form will be sent to this address.
|Pending Digest Email
|This can be any number of emails. Every day at 4 PM a pending digest that includes a list of events in the pending queue will be sent to the specified emails. The digest does not take into account any filter restrictions on a user’s account, but when they navigate to the pending queue they will only see events that correspond to their restrictions.

|When checked, Localist will not send any emails/notifications to users.This is unchecked by default.
