Event tags

You can categorize events using event tags – aka event labels. You can assign an unlimited number of tags to each event and use these tags to group similar events.

What you can do with tags

  • You can filter the events list in admin view by entering one or more event tags in the Search field.
  • You can limit event calendars to listing only events with certain event tags. This allows you to create separate event calendars for each type of event.
  • You can limit upcoming events gadgets to listing only events with certain event tags.
  • You can color code different types of events on the calendar view of your event calendar using event tags

What you can't do with tags

  • You cannot use the site search gadget to search for events by event tag.
  • Event tags are not searched by Google and do not affect your site's Google rankings.

Adding tags

You can assign tags to events on the event details page when you add or modify an event.

Tags are displayed on the event list in admin view.

You can quickly filter the list by typing a tag in the search field.

Removing tags

You can remove a tag for a particular event by going into edit mode and removing it from the Tag field. If you want to remove the tag completely, so it does not show up on your tag list (a tag might be not longer used or misspelled), you have to go into every event that has this tag assigned and remove it one by one.
