How to Apply Meeting Types to Meetings

Updated 1 month ago by Lois Lewis

About Types

Adding types to your meeting listings is an important way to help members find the kinds of meetings they are looking for. Meeting types only display in the Types list if they are applied to at least one of the 500 meeting results returned for a user's particular location. This means that different users may see different meeting types as filters within the app based on their geographic location.

It's ok if you use different meeting codes on your website but types have to be consistent across the app to make a good user experience. It's common that a user might see meeting results from several areas at a time (this happens in small areas, and near borders). The set of meeting types we use is a mutually-agreed-upon set of names across 70+ areas.

Meeting Types

The codes below are only used for transmitting meeting data. App users will only see the full definitions.

The codes below should be considered 'reserved.' In your implementation, it's ok to alter the description (for example "Topic Discussion" rather than "Discussion") so long as the intent is the same. "Child Care Available" is a common substitute for "Babysitting Available." "American Sign Language" or "ASL" rather than "Sign Language." It's also ok to add types, they will be ignored by the importer.
