Use event types and tags to make your event more specific
Event types are created as very broad categories that work for as many groups as possible. They are set by the calendar administrators and will not change.
It is not required for an event to have an event type. If the event does not fit into an event type, use tags.
Global tags are cross-functional, meaning that they have been created by calendar admins to be used across groups. If an event has a global tag, that tag will display in the filter in the calendar view. School names will not be global tags, and users may not edit global tags.
if you have a recommendation for a global tag, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and the calendar administrators will evaluate the submission.
Local tags are managed by the group who creates them. Some examples of local tags:
Brown bag lunch series
When you create a local tag, make sure to check existing global and local tags to avoid duplication. If there are duplicate tags, you can merge them. Tags may also be deleted, especially in cases where the tag was created for a campaign or a limited run.
Tag best practices
Use local tags for events that are specific to your group.
Before creating a local tag, check to see if there is a global tag that will work appropriately. If there is not a relevant global tag, check to see if there are existing local tags that will work appropriately. If there aren't proceed with the creation of a local tag.
