Event Types

What Event Types are and one way you can add them to events.

About this article

To better explain what Event Types do, we will be adding a Running Order Template to the Event Type in the example demonstrated in this article. Running Order Templates and topics related to Event Types will have their own articles soon and will be available here for your convenience:

About Event Types

Some events that you set up regularly may require similar:

  • Metadata fields
  • Timeline Template
  • Running Order Template
  • Checklists
  • Etc

Event Types in Crescat can contain all such information inside itself. Then when you assign an Event Type to an event, all of those details you've assigned to the Event Type will be transferred to that event.


Let’s Look at an Example

As mentioned earlier, we won't get into Creating a Running Order Template here. But let's look at the one we will be using in this example. As you can see, it includes columns that indicate which microphone should be active, what state the lights should be in, etc.

Our Running Order Template is titled: Conference Standard


If we set up a new Event Type for conferences, called Conference Example, we can add our Running Order Template to it.


Creating a New Event With an Event Type

Now when we set up a new event, we can select Conference Example as its Event Type. Then the Running Orders and anything else we have defined as a part of that Event Type will be automatically applied to that event.


In the image below, we are viewing a new event that was created just now for this example. Upon opening it for the first time, we find that the Running Order called Conference Standard waiting for us inside.

The Running Order we added to the Event Type is now part of the new event we created with no extra setup.


Let us know below if this article explained the concept of Event Types sufficiently.
