The tree view is a window that displays event structures in the form of a tree structure (like a family tree). The tree view is mainly used to group events and customize event structures in a clear and visual way.


For a definition of events concepts, see the Concepts section of the chapter on events.

An event group is made up of separate events. Several event groups can also be grouped into other event groups. You can turn event groups into extensive constructions: event structures. This is handy for structuring larger events.

Grouping events has several advantages:

  • Event details can be entered on different levels; shared details on the event group level (e.g. the ‘Shakespeare Festival’) or production level (e.g. all performances in the ‘Hamlet Production’ series), specific details on the event level (e.g. that one ‘Hamlet’ performance).
  • The structure can be used to award resources or schedules to all underlying events in one go (e.g. to all performances in the ‘Hamlet Production’ series).
  • Summaries and reports can be made of the total event group (e.g. a report of all the ‘Shakespeare Festival’ schedules).
