Events that are similar can be shown on the same list by assigning them to an Event Group. For example, if you want to group webinars together, you can create a new Event Group record named Webinars in Salesforce and it will group your webinars together. Keep reading to find out more!

Event Sorting

By default, we provide different types of Event sorting within your Event Group.

Date Range

This allows an Attendee to see upcoming Events, all Events, or Events within a selected range of dates.
Date Range

Category

On the Event Group URL page, select an option from the Category drop-down field.

This allows an Attendee to filter between categories, such as "Virtual Events", "Conference", "Class/Workshops" and more! If your Events do not have a Category assigned, the picklist will not be available.

Category

Filtered Event Sorting

The field Filter Fields is located on the Event Group record. When this field is defined, certain filters can be hidden or displayed.

There are 4 options in the Filter Fields picklist.

"Category"
When chosen, this will display the different Categories that are assigned to your Events.

NOTE: If all Events in an Event Group are assigned to the same Category, this field will not appear on the Event page.

"Keywords"
When chosen, this will display the different Event Keywords that are assigned to your Events.

"No Filters"
Since the Filter Fields field is a required value, pick this option if you don't want any Categories or Keywords to appear. This will also hide the Filter Fields picklist from the Event page.

"Distance"
When customers are viewing the Event Group by Distance, they will be prompted (if the request for access is enabled) to turn on their location services. Events will be sorted by closest to furthest, and Events within a Mileage Distance Group will be sorted by newest to oldest.
