Events Taxonomy

Your site comes with two taxonomy vocabularies associated with Events - the Event Audience vocabulary, and the Event Types vocabulary. The Event Audience vocabulary allows you to define the audience your event is targeted for (e.g. Alumni, Faculty/Staff, Students, etc.). The Event Types vocabulary allows you to specify what type of event is occurring (e.g. Conference, Meeting, Lecture, etc.). The Event Type vocabulary is used by the filter on your Events List page at [your site url]/events. By default, these taxonomy vocabularies include a number of useful terms, and site managers have the ability to add, edit, or delete these terms.
