In the admin/events_update.php page, in the Update Record (Events) behavior, I went into the bindings for authorize (which has a data type of Numeric) and added the value of 1.
Went to the lightning bolt and selected the "Authorize" field.
The event doesn't show after I edited the event with the checkbox.
When I looked at the database though, it did change the value to 1.
EDIT: I thought it worked through the admin...but it only authorized it when I changed it in the database.
