Categories are used in 25Live to group objects for reporting and searching purposes. You can create categories for the following object types:
How To Add Categories
1. Open a Specific Category Type View

The Categories view within the Master Definitions section has submenus organized by object type, Event, Location, Resource, and Organization.
2. Use the Create New Button

To add a new category, use the Create New button. Your new item will appear at the top of the list.
4. Rename the New Category
The new category will appear with a default name that includes its ID number. Use the edit icon () to rename.
Every type of category allows you to edit the list or item with the following actions:
Manually reorder items
The Id number for each item is listed
Edit the Name of the item
Check or uncheck the Active status
The Abridged checkbox controls if the item is only visible on an abridged list for users with limited permissions
View the Usage of the item in events, searches, etc.
Delete the item (if it is not being used)
Force Delete the item (even if it's being used) and remove all references (available only to Administrators in the (-1) security group)
Use Caution With Force Delete
The option to "force delete" a master definition item should be taken with care. Be advised that some searches may no longer function as expected until you edit them to remove references.
Tip: Manually Sorting Item Display Order

The default display order for master definition items is to show them in alphabetical order. You can set the order that items will display by clicking on the row and dragging up or down. Use the Save Sort button to save the order.
