Hi,
I have a question about the RSVP function.
If a user click on the "Changed your mind?" function do I get a notification?
And are the users displayed according to the registration order?
If i use reccuring events is it only possible to sign up for the next one? Or can one only register for the entire event, not for the individual days? :'(

You get a notification if they RSVP. If they change their RSVP to something else, you'll get a notification for that too. If they remove their RSVP, you won't get a notification.
And are the users displayed according to the registration order?
They're displayed in RSVP order, IIRC.

Entire event but they'll be able to remove their RSVP for subsequent events.

Are you referring to 1.0.4?
That was 1.0.3, actually. I suspect you’re interested in the venue and organiser stuff? That’s mostly under the hood stuff so it isn’t quite ready at the moment but it’s coming along great. I hope to have that fully available in the next version so 1.0.5.

1.0.4 was just about tweaking what events were considered as being new and just some small quality of life improvements / fixes.

Could you add some widgets to this site?
Yes, I am indeed waiting for organizer / venue profiles.

v1.0.4 caused ALL events to be triggered as new!
How do I fix this, for all users?

The code is pretty standard and explicit in what it does. It just gets events that don't have a read date for that particular user, only gets visible ones and only considers events that were created AFTER read marking cut off (defined in options, usually 30 days). So by default, you'd only get new events that were created in the last 30 days that haven't been read by the logged in user.

I suspect that it might actually be related to your import. The same update was applied here and it works as expected. Did you maintain the original created_date's from your XenAttendo events?

Edit: I made a slight tweak to the query in the package that you can try.

Where is this? I don't recognise/find anything within /admin.php?event-calendar/options that look like mark read cut off date.

Yes, created_date was the issue. Apologies, thanks!

This would me importent for me too :/
Is it possible to include this feature?
I would like to plan pen and paper groups, for that I would need:
  • recurring events where you can subscribe and unsubscribe individually
  • notifications for subscribing and unsubscribing
  • subsequent insertion or removal of individual event days
would all this be possible with this addon?

It's a core XF option under "Threads, Discussions and Conversations".

No worries. My other hunch was a MySQL quirk which would've been annoying. :D
notifications for subscribing and unsubscribing
There are notifications for subscribing / RSVP'ing.
subsequent insertion or removal of individual event days
You mean for recurring events? No, not yet.

Maybe with a threshold or something. I expect the number of those who withdraw be far less in context.

Its a bit similar to putting someone on ignore or unfollowing them. its a negative action that people can get pissed about.
'Why are you not going to my event?'

it would be enough for me to be informed when someone leaves the event
I can understand the argument.
but if you have to plan a group and can't see if someone jumps out you can forget the whole plan.

I don't follow that argument. The event planner needs to know everything. Imagine you strictly get NO notification that 50% have jumped of and due to time restrictions you check in very late and close to the actual event date, then your plans go down the toilet.

This depends very much on what you are using the calendar for. We use it to post related festivals, conferences. lectures, etc. Mostly such events have between 1500 -100k attendees.
Our site may bring in dozens of attendees. Maybe 100 if its a very large popular event.

We would like to bring in event organizers. Give them a profile. Let them add events. Let them pay for features to put the event in the spotlight.
Its great if they receive alerts that people are going to their event. Its really not good if they receive alerts about members not going to their event. Its like putting advertising banners on your site and sending alerts to your advertisers about members not interested in the advertised product. Thats bad for business.

I can see how it would be useful for different setups with small events organized on the forum for forum members only. So if that is something that webmasters will use NF Calendar for then maybe an option is needed.
