  3. Enter the name of the event type, and if the event should be available for requesters to use, check the Requestable field.  


Setting Requestable for Multiple Event Types 

You can change the Requestable flag on more than one event type record by selecting the check box to the left of the event type on the event types you would like to change. Then, after selecting the event types, choose Requestable > Yes or Requestable > No from the menu that appears.

Where Event Types are Used

Event Planners can specify the event type on the event or the booking.  The event type at the booking level takes precedence over the event level.

Event types are used as filters throughout the system to limit the data presented.  Here are some of the tools that have event type filtering:

  • Find Events
  • Activity Log
  • Event Calendar
  • Daily Operations Report
  • Event List
  • Analytics


Setting the Event Book Colors by Event Type

There is an option to use colors specified on event types for coloring the bookings in the event book.  Contact Mazévo support to have this setting activated.
