When creating an event, make sure to assign an event category. This improves website organization and allows the user to more easily find the event they are looking for. This also allows places where events are listed by category to function properly and significantly increases the visual appeal of the site.
Event categories appear at the top of the Calendar page. Events appear on the calendar (and in Event Lists on other places on the website) as the same color as their respective category. Users are able to sort events by clicking on Event Categories.
To assign an event category to an event, select the appropriate checkbox to categorize it. More than one Event Category may be chosen, but the primary category (the one first checked) will be the color the event appears.
Make sure to click Save when done.
