PATH: Events > Organizations
An organization is a customer, organization, or another entity used in event scheduling to which one or more individual contacts are associated.
Coursedog allows institutions to define organizations by creating these groups in-app and maintaining contacts for each.
Both the organization and contact record are used during event scheduling.
These organizations are used to schedule events and help categorize events.
Creating a New Organization
You can add organizations manually (directions below) or via CSV.
To add via CSV, reach out to your Project Manager.
Adding Organizations Manually
Click the Organizations tab on the left-hand navigation bar. This will take you to the “organizations” dashboard.
To add a new organization, simply click “Add Organization” and enter the name and type of the organization.

Public Organizations – Appear on the public-facing events website, allowing users to filter and search for public organizations.
