Assign Redtail Category When Scheduling Activities Using GReminders

Redtail Categories

When scheduling appointments on the Redtail Calendar using GReminders automated scheduling, or creating events directly on your Redtail calendar, an Activity Type is assigned for each event. GReminders direct integration with Redtail can read Activity Types and not only determine scheduling availability, but trigger specific reminders based on Activity Types.  Learn more about using Redtail activity types in GReminders here.

If you use Redtail Categories in conjunction with Activity Types, you can create Automations in Redtail to assign a category based on an Activity Type.  

Let’s take a look at the steps:

Login to Redtail and click your name at the top, right. Select Manage Your Account: 

Find the Manage Templates Area and click Automation Templates: 


Click Add to create a new Automation: 


Setting up Automation Templates involves four tabs: On This Event, Do This Action, If All Conditions True and If Any Conditions True.

On the “On this Event” tab, provide your Automation Name, the Trigger Event and a Description of the Automation.

  • Automation Name: Assign Category Based on Activity Type 
  • Trigger Event: Activity Added
  • Description: This Automation Assigns a Category based on an Activity Type
Select On this event

Your next step is to Assign the Category on the “Do This Action” Tab

  • Action Type = Set Field
  • Action Item = Activity Category
  • Item Value = Category that matches your Activity Type
Do this Option

Next, set your condition on the “If All Conditions True” tab:

  • Condition Item = Activity Type
  • Operand = Equal To
  • Item Value = The Activity Type that matches your Category

After clicking ‘Add Condition’, click Create Automation to save it.

You will now see it in the list:

Now, when you assign a meeting type (Redtail Activity Type) to an Event Type in GReminders, you will automatically assign the Category in Redtail:


GReminders’ direct integration with Redtail allows the user to automatically assign an activity type and category in Redtail. Using these fields, the user has complete control over online automated scheduling and reminders.
