Events can be classified using Event Categories. Event Categories are considered a Classification Code. Argenta comes loaded with common Event Categories to help you get started, but you can change them at any time.

You can add or delete any Event Category by selecting Classification Codes from the Argenta main menu on the left-hand side of the screen.


This will bring you into the full listing of Customizable Classification Codes in Argenta. From here you will choose "Event Categories."


This will bring you into the full listing of your Event Categories. Next you will choose the "Add New" button.



This will open the Add A New Event Category screen for you to add a new event category.



Enter a name for your new category and click "Add This Classification Code" to add this new category to your list.


View The Total Number Of Records
Above the list is a records total that displays the total of all items currently displayed in the list. This is a quick and easy way to count list items.


Search The List
All classification code lists can be searched by the code’s title. Enter the title of the code you are looking for into the search field to search the list. You can also search by a keyword or phrase. 


Export The List To Excel
Argenta contains many reports, charts, graphs, and statements, but it may be necessary to manipulate your own data. You can work with your data anyway you want by exporting it to Excel. Every list in Argenta has an “Export To Excel” button above the list. Clicking the button exports the data currently displayed in the list to Microsoft Excel. If you have filtered the data by specific criteria, only the result set will be exported.


To Remove An Event Category

In the event category list, click the corresponding delete button  to remove the event category from Argenta. Event categories that are already in use cannot be deleted. You will receive an alert indicating that you cannot delete the event category because it has been used to classify an event. If you still want to delete it, you can find the events associated with it by filtering the event list, reclassifying all associated events, then trying again to delete it.
