All messages and the attendance lists generated out of them will be assigned to an event category. At least one event category must be available in order to allow the first messages to be received and attendance lists to be generated. As the name suggests, the event category categorises all received messages according to the category of the corresponding event.

  1. Create new event category
    (Joomla Backend - Components - AttendanceLists - Event categories - New)
  2. Enter a title
  3. Save

Creating an event category corresponds to the procedure of creating a category for articles (com_content of the Joomla! core).
