Adding filters allows you to easily categorize sessions. As an event admin, use filters to create room constraints or to find sessions in the Session Slotter. You can also allow attendees to use filters to find specific session types, by enabling filters on the Session Schedule block on your event website. 

How to add a filter

On the Scheduling tab, select the Filters menu item. If you have not yet added any filters, do so by clicking the "Add Your First Filter" button. If there are already filters added, click the "Add" button in the menu on the right-hand side. 

In the dialog that appears, enter the name of filter and if you want select a colour from the colour picker - if not a colour will automatically be assigned to the filter. You can also add Filter Items, by clicking the "Add" button below the Filter Items field. A filter items allows you to divide the filter into sub-categories. Click the filter item to edit its name and to select a colour from the colour picker. 

Note: To use a filter there must be at least one filter item added.

As an example, you might want to create a filter to categorize sessions by subject. In this case, you would create a filter and call it "Session Subject" and add the relevant filter items (i.e. sub-categories). In this example, the sub-categories are "Marketing," "Sales," and "Technology." Apply the "Marketing" filter item to all sessions related to marketing, etc. 

How to use filters

Apply filters to sessions by opening a session profile (under Scheduling > Sessions), scrolling down to "Filters" and applying the relevant filter. Once filters are added to sessions, the Session Scheduling content block will display a filter interface to allow users to filter the session list.
