Our Glossary is a helpful list of terms used in Grenadine. We try to use language that is as easy to understand as possible, however with software as vast as ours sometimes users might need a bit of clarification, this is why we have created a glossary to clarify any language used within our software or documentation. Should you need a definition of a word used on Grenadine, you can find it here in the alphabetized glossary.

Unlisted Event
An unlisted event is not quite public, but not really a big secret either. It’s similar to what you might remember as an unlisted phone number (if you’re old enough to remember what a phone book looks like!). When you mark your event as unlisted, Grenadine will no longer include your event links in event directories. This means that you will need to send out a link to your event to the audiences that need to see it.

Some elements can have a visibility, such as events, sessions or schedule entries. Visibility can be set to "public", "private", or "organizer". Events can also be set to "unlisted". The visibility refers to the setting that determines who can see the element for which the visibility is set.
