What is the Custom Event ID?

When you add or edit an event there is a field called "Custom Event ID". This is not a required field and is not necessary for the Event Planner application to function correctly.

This field is to be used if you choose to use an in-house tracking system for your events. For example, say you kept track of contracts by the last name of the contact person followed by the year of the event. Using this system you could use "SMITH2008" as the custom event id.

If you do not use an in-house numbering/lettering system for your events you will typically not need to use this field.
