Welcome to Linchpin Events!

This beginner guide was created to help you with the setup of Linchpin Events. See what's there to configure and how you can do it. 

For more information, be sure to view the Linchpin Events documentation.


Set up event categories.

Users can label events with categories. This allows users to understand the event's purpose more quickly. Furthermore, event categories can be used as filters. For example, you can personalize the event hub and other macro to specific categories.


Head over to your Linchpin Administration. Navigate to Linchpin Events and choose Categories.


Make yourself familiar with various event macros.

You can display events in various ways. Take a first look at available macros.
