Tags can help you organize your events. If you want to set up some common tag practices to give you experience in how a tag works, or if you want to know which tags you might need, check out the tag practices below.
Check out this clip from Planning Center University.
Start with the most critical information you need to know about your events. Organize tags into categories using tag groups.
Here are some examples of tag groups and tags to create first:
Departments/Ministries: Music, Administrative, Children, Counseling, Youth, Missions, Outreach, Maintenance
Language: Spanish, English, Bilingual
Event Type: Meeting, Wedding, Funeral, Banquet, Youth Group, Worship Night, Special Event
Financial/Admin: Space Rental, Free, Capacity Limited
From there, add tag groups for "nice to know" information, such as:
Needed Paperwork: Member Covenant, Liability Waiver, Medical Form, Photo Waiver, Rental Application, Connect Card
Church Center Categories: All Church, Sunday Services, Kids, Young Adults, Missions, Small Groups, Special Events
Staff Assignments: Senior Pastor, Secretary, Maintenance Supervisor, Youth Pastor, Worship Pastor, Vendor
View Filters: Check-Ins Events, Unpublished Signups, Hidden Groups Events
You can use one color to represent a common factor between Tags in different Tag Groups.
If you have fewer events, set each ministry to a unique color to allow that ministry designation to be available to them without entering table view or opening up any given event.
On the Table View, it's easy to see the events that are related by their tag colors.
