All Events must be given an Event Category.  The Category determines in which of the calendar lists the Event will be displayed.  The Event Category can be set either when creating the event or when updating it, so if the Event has been put into the wrong Category it can easily be changed.

The first thing to decide is the Type of the Event, which is shown in bold in the list below.  If you are not sure which Type the Event is, look for similar events already on the CTAT web site.  This will then help decide which Type it is and the Category that should be used.

If the Event is held on a specific date and is part of the Christmas or Easter celebrations, please put it into the specific Category for that celebration.  It will then automatically appear in the relevant Special Event list.

For Events that are valid for the entire year, please always use the Ongoing category for the relevant Type.

TIP: For people learning about how to set up Events, then use the Training and Training: Ongoing Categories.  Any Event that uses these categories can only be seen at ctat.org.uk/training.  It is also worth experimenting with alternating between the two categories and looking at the effect on the Training page.
