Calendar Categories


This tutorial will show you how to manage your calendar categories.

Each calendar must have at least one category.  By default, your calendar will be setup with a category named "General".  You may rename this category as you see fit.  If your calendar only has one category, the front-end calendar on your website will not display the "Category View" section.

 

Categories

All Calendars must have at least one category as you MUST select at least one category for each event.  If a calendar only has one category,the "Categories View" will not appear on your website's calendar.  You can have as many categories as you'd like and you can also manage their sort order (the order in which they appear on your website's calendar).

Follow the directions below to Add New Categories.  The process for Editing Categories is the same, just click on the Edit Icon next to each category from the list view.
