All Allevents features have a common basis: the agenda concept. An event is linked to an agenda. The « Museum visit » will be part of the « Visit » agenda while the « Meeting » event could be part of the “club life” agenda , the “Summer internship” part of a “Our children” agenda.  

You could decide that you should need only one agenda on your website and that this “agenda concept” is not mandatory. No problem! An events is not linked in a mandatory way to an agenda and you couldn’t care.

Vous pourriez décider que, sur votre site, vous n'auriez qu'un seul agenda et que, par conséquent, cette notion d'agenda est superflue. Pas de problème ! Un évènement n'est pas obligatoirement relié à un agenda et vous pourriez donc ne pas vous en soucier. However, as nobody knows how your website can evolve, I advise you to create an agenda in order to be ready the day you would need. By creating an agenda since the beginning, your events and other Allevents data will already be on the right way and it will simplify the multi-agenda enhancement.
