Creating and Editing Event Categories

Event Categories allow for you to easily place each event into a color-coded group so that browsing through your Life Calendar is easy, fast, and detailed. By setting the priority of event categories, you’ll also alert the Life Calendar that certain types of events should be displayed over others. For instance, traveling may be more meaningful to you than a birthday – so you can set the “travel” category above the “birthday” category so that the Life Calendar displays photos of traveling over photos of your birthday (if they happen at the same time).

Each event category can be created, edited and sorted within Mylio to give you additional customization over your Life Calendar. Here is how…
