How to Create and Delete (Expire) an Event Type

This article will outline the steps involved to carry out the following processes within the Behaviour Config area:

  • Create Event Types which group Events together for Reporting Purposes.
  • Expire Event Types that are no longer being used (Event Types cannot be deleted as they may contain historical data).

Access: The minimum permissions required to Create and Delete an Event Type are found in the Behaviour Module of Config>Setup>Roles & Permissions.

Create an Event Type

From the left Menu go to Config>Behaviour>Event Types.

Behaviour Event Types 0001

Click New.

Complete the fields:

  • Name – This can be up to 10 characters in length.
  • Description – This can be up to 30 characters in length.
  • Start Date – The desired Start Date that the Event Type can be used from.

When finished, click the Create button.

The Event Type has now been created and is available for use.

Expire an Event Type

Use this guide to Expire and Event Type that is no longer being used.

From the left Menu go to Config>Behaviour>Event Types.

Behaviour Event Types 0001

Select the Event Type you no longer wish to use and click View.

In the Edit Event Types, enter an End Date and press Save.

The Event Type will not be visible when logging Events against a Student from that End Date onwards.

Note: The Event Type will still be available to report on, with any historical data. So it has not been deleted, it has been made unavailable to use moving forward.
