These are example custom types for Events that are currently used by some users to supplement the built-in Event types. Because the reporting features that analyze data won't have the awareness of how to categorize such custom additions, they are not necessarily recommended nor an indicator of future features.

Some users have found some custom types to be useful starting points for tracking their particular interests. Custom reports can be created as addons by anyone with basic Python scripting skills.

Custom Types in a Tree may be managed (listed, merged or removed) with the Types Cleanup Tool addon. They may be reassigned with the Rename Events Types tool.
