Organize Events with Tags

Created on:
Updated on:

Tags help you organize events based on common ground, such as campus or department. Set up tag groups based on the common ground, and then assign those tags to your events. Now you're able to quickly track down specific events based on those tags.

Only Organization Administrators and Event Administrators can create and edit tags.

Check out the video playlist to see how to use tags in the best way, or follow the steps below to set up your tags.

 

Create a Tag Group

Tag Groups categorize tags which are alike. To create a new tag group, go to the Tags tab from the Events page and click New tag group.

TIP: If you're a multi-campus organization you should use a Campus tag group to house tags for each of your campuses. This will allow you to easily find campus-specific events when filtering. The same goes for the various departments and ministry areas of your church.

By enabling the Required setting on a Tag Group, you're saying that at least one tag from this group must be selected when creating new events.

To make changes to a tag group, click Edit. Once you're in edit mode, you can also delete a tag group. If you remove the tag group, it will delete all the tags in that tag group and remove them from all events. There isn't a way to undo the deletion.

Create a Tag

You can add tags to tag groups where they share common ground. You can also add them to the Individual Tags section if you have a tag that doesn't fit your groups. Regardless of where you choose to add the tag, the way you add them is the same.

Click Add new tag in the box where you're adding the tag. Enter the name of the new tag and choose a color to represent the tag.

Assign Tag to Event

You can add a tag to an event while creating the event or from the Details section on the event page.

To add a tag, click Add a tag, and either choose from the dropdown or type the name of the tag. It will auto-populate. Required tag groups show with an asterisk and must be added when an event is created.

Once you add tags to an event, you can see the tags assigned to an event based on their colors on the event calendar.

Once your events are properly tagged, you can use filters to track down specific events or create reports and calendar feeds.
