Calendar Assets include Event Categories and Collections.

Event Categories, used as a legend, is a master list of color-coded categories that can be applied to events added to a calendar. On the end-user website, you can filter events by event categories. Some popular event categories include Assembly, Athletic Event, and Field Trip.

A Calendar Collection is a group of calendars. For example, teachers' calendars within a specific school, all elementary school calendars, all athletics' calendars, all department calendars at the district office.

Use a collection to post an event to more than one calendar on your website.

Site Directors can use the Mandatory Event feature to post an event to every calendar in the district without the need for a calendar collection.
