Premium Calendar Event Categories

Categories for your Events & Activities

liveviewThe Premium Calendar has the ability to allow your users to filter calendar views by the category they are interested in. To allow for this filtration, you need to create and assign events categories to your events.

The Events Categories Options

overview

To access the Events Categories, go to EvENTS CALENDAR > EVENT CATEGORIES. This page will display all of your current categories on the right side and allows you to add additional categories on the left side.

Adding a New Event Category

add-category

Adding an Event Category is very simple. All you are required to do is enter a NAME for the Category and you can create the category. If you want, you can also assign the SLUG (modification to the URL – optional) or a Parent Category. For example, you could have a Parent Category called “PTO Fundraisers” and then child categories of “Restaurant Nights”, “School Fundraisers”, “Ongoing Fundraisers”, etc. You can also enter a description of the category if you want to.

When you have finished adding all the information you want to add, click the ADD NEW EVENT CATEGORY button and you’re all set!

Assigning a Category to an Event
