Event types are LiveWhale’s categories. These are not to be confused with calendar groups or tags. Event types aid a calendar viewer with determining the type of event they are interested in attending. Any event may have one or more designated event type.
Audience types are meant to determine to whom an event should be directed. It is not used for telling certain audiences to promote an event to another audience, so keep it limited to the intended audience types. There are eight audience types to choose from and multiple can be selected:
- Audience: Faculty
- Audience: Staff
- Audience: Students
- Audience: Alumni
- Audience: Parents
- Audience: Members Only – This type does not show the event on the (main) public calendar. It is intended for your calendar group’s audience only.
- Audience: By Invitation Only – This type also does not show the event on the (main) public calendar. It is intended to inform the appropriate individuals of an event occurring, in this case, only individuals who have been invited.
- Audience: General Public
Audience locations are meant to aid individuals looking for events that are designated for specific campus locations. Some events will requireall audience locations to be selected, such as certain academic calendar events (e.g. enrollment an payment deadlines). The five audience location types correspond with Tarleton’s five campus locations:
- Audience: Stephenville
- Audience: Fort Worth
- Audience: Midlothian
- Audience: Waco
- Audience: Global Campus-Online
Other Event Types
All other categories are actual event types. In all, there are 15 other event types:

The Office Hours event type was added to assist you in providing a specific area that displayed your operational hours, if needed. Keep in mind that for some events, you will want to use multiple categories such as Office Hours and Audience: Members Only to keep redundant events from appearing on the Public Calendar.
