A Category is a broad classification of a topic. By assigning one or more categories to your event, you allow our site visitors to quickly identify a listing of a particular type of event. At least one category is required per event. Our categories are: Arts, Athletics, Conferences - Symposia, Dates - Deadlines, Free Food, Open to the Public, Programs, and Speakers.
A Tag is a label that further defines content using simple keywords. You can use Tags to assign additional classification to your event. Site visitors will be able to search on popular Tags to surface events based on their particular interest.
Some useful and popular Tags have been pre-populated and associated with Categories (e.g., the Tags film and live comedy are associated with the Arts Category). Those Tags will be suggested to you as create an Event and are also viewable in your Group's Tag Library.
If a Tag is not already in your Group's Tag Library, you can enter a new Tag and it will be added to your Group's Tag Library.
