How to create an event category

What is an event category? Event categories are the link between passes your customers buy and the events they can use those passes to attend. Without event categories, customers could use a $20 drop-in to enroll in your Portugal retreat. Probably not what you were hoping for!

To learn more about Event Categories, visit our video tutorial, How to Create an Event Category .

Some classic event categories to get you started include:

  • Classes
  • Workshops
  • Teacher Trainings

What does this affect? In addition to linking passes to events, event categories can be filtered and displayed separately on your public-facing Union page. This allows customers to (for example) quickly browse regular classes without seeing teacher trainings, or vice versa.

It can also be a way to group specific classes together for your customers in the replay library. For example, you may have pre-recorded classes or a common thread of class styles. When your customers visit your replay library, your customers can quickly locate these different styles!

How to Create an Event Category

From your admin dashboard, select Products > Categories. Then click or tap the button labeled New Event Category.

Give your new category a name, then Save. Adding a description and photo is NOT required. These fields are primarily used for your replay library. This can come in handy if you have a course that will be available on your replay library (see second image).
