    Hi there. 🙂

    Is there a feature that allows my members to see who else is attending? And if so, is this available on the user side (not in the backend) and can it be on the event page?

    Also, is there a way to set up and send out automatic reminders via email?

    If not, could anyone refer me to a plugin that does this? I can’t find one and I really need these two functionalities on my site.

    Thanks in advance,

    ~Matt

    Hi Matt,

    Unfortunately EO doesn’t include any of the social features that you’ve mentioned. Users can only see the events that they are attending, or have booked tickets for.
    You could use the EO Pro plugin for your ticketing/booking needs and include some kind of RSVP social media (Facebook Events, for example) button alongside/within the booking form or confirmation page.

    Yes, you can schedule automatic reminder emails to the bookees of an event, however this functionality isn’t build into the plugin as standard and you will need to add a bit of custom code to schedule the emails and their content. There’s already a very good tutorial available to help you with this exact feature extension.

    Hope this helps 🙂

    Hi Matt,

    As Dario has already pointed out there isn’t an in-built email reminder feature. However, I have worked on projects which have required this, and it can be easily implemented (the tutorial Dario linked to provides a working example – but it is only viewable by customers). The one caveat here is that WordPress’ default handling of scheduled jobs (cron jobs) is not entirely accurate. If this is an issue you’ll need to create a geniune cron job (your host will probably have a way for you to do that in your site’s control panel).

    Regarding ‘view who’s attending’, I am planning a shortcode for this (probably 1.5 – in the next month).

Your information:




To create code blocks or other preformatted text, indent by four spaces:

    This will be displayed in a monospaced font. The first four 
    spaces will be stripped off, but all other whitespace
    will be preserved.
    
    Markdown is turned off in code blocks:

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
