An Event is any activity associated with a vehicle. It could be as simple as a registration renewal, or as complex as an engine rebuild. It could be a simple Sunday drive, or a sanctioned Race. It could be as simple as washing your motorcycle, or a Concours where the vehicle wins a ribbon. It could be placing a rack on your ATV, or it could be installing a roll cage.
Creating an Event starts with choosing a date and time. The application defaults to the current date and time, but you can change it using the calendar and by editing the time. By selecting the date of your choosing, you can go back in time to record events such as the purchase of a vehicle you already own, or a key maintenance event, or an award from 3 years ago. Creating an Event also requires you to select a vehicle, and choose an event type. The vehicle and the desired event type need to exist first, so see those help files or the first time setup post.
Although optional, it is helpful to record the odometer reading (or hour reading) for any given event. It creates a chronology to complement the date and time, and it helps to determine when the next maintenance event may be due.
