Managing Event Type Views

An Event Type View is a grouping or collection of event types to help your guests or users to search for multiple event types in a single step, rather than conducting multiple searches for different event types. For example, if you are managing calendars for a university campus, you might group the event types of Women’s Swimming, Women’s Track and Field, Women’s Soccer, and Women’s Basketball under the Event Type View of “Women’s Athletic Events.” This topic guides you in creating, editing, deleting and activating and inactivating Event Type Views and viewing Event Type View history..
