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.

Organize Tags into Groups

Start with the most critical information you need to know about your events. Organize tags into categories using tag groups.


Campus tags are added based on your campuses in the account settings.

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  • View Filters: Check-Ins Events, Unpublished Signups, Hidden Groups Events


Rearrange Tag Groups

Tag Groups are displayed alphabetically. To rearrange them to the order you want, add a number to the beginning of the Group Names


Use Colors to Tie Tags Together

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.


Use Colors to Represent an Entire Tag Group

You can use a single color to represent an entire tag group.

Use Colors to Represent Individual Tags

If you have a Tag that doesn't fit within a Group or is extra important, you can give it a unique color to make it stand out.
