Classification Codes, Working with Member Event Categories

Return To The Knowledge Base

Member Events can be classified using member event categories. Member event categories are considered a classification code. Argenta comes loaded with common member event categories to help you get started, but you can change them at any time. You can add or delete any member event category by selecting Membership or Classification Codes > Member Event Categories from the Argenta main menu on the left hand side of the screen.



View The Total Number Of Records
Above every list is a pink label 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.


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 had an “Export List 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 Add A Member Event Category
Click the “Add a New Category” button above the list. The “Add A New Member Event Category” window will come up…



Type a name for your member event category and click the “Add This Category” button. The window will close and the new member event category will display in the list.


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