Event CATEGORIES are often defined as areas or departments such as Staff Meeting, Community Outreach, Space Rental, etc.

NOTE: This is an optional feature, although it is recommended for enhancing the reporting, internal calendar, public calendar, and search features. If you want to make Categories a required field, you can do so by going to Settings>Advanced>General, under Optional Settings and clicking the box, as shown below.

To Add Categories:

  • Go to Settings>Advanced>Event Categories

  • Add Category Name, choose a category color code and text color (optional). If you would like your category to be included and filterable on your Public Calendar, place a check in the box, and Save. Repeat this process to continue adding categories.
  • Delete a Category by clicking the red button associated with the Category and process accordingly.
  • Edit a Category by clicking the green button associated with the Category.
  • You will be able to see how many events have been assigned to each category, as events are created.
