Categories are a super effective way of collating events and your email/SMS templates into "folders" which can be easily tracked and shared.
Categories can be created when building/editing an event on the Type & Categories page; type in your category and press return! There's no limit to the number of categories an event can belong to.
Once created, categories can be managed on the Settings > Categories page.
The main benefit of adding events into categories is that it allows you to be more specific with the events you share with your students.
Event field - A stalwart of forms, event fields can be configured only to pull in events belonging to a specific category. Add a Form Field > Event field to your form and Save changes. Edit the field and look for the Category card on the Options tab.
Event share - Head to Events > Share to access the sublime events sharing link/embed. Pick a booking form (any Gecko form with an event field) that you'd like to use and tell Gecko to display events By Category.
Categories can be used to organize your Email & SMS Templates page more effectively. Categories can be applied to a template when it is first being created, but can also be retrospectively added to a category using the Actions on selected > Add to Category.
Once created, categories can be edited/removed by heading to Settings > Categories.
