There is significant demand for events to occur for our community every week!
(We would be meeting in real life for the events)
I would like to be able to delegate events management to selected members, and have them be able to create events, with automatic notification to all members (via email), I would also like an events widget that stays permanently on the right hand side much like the "Recent Topics Added" widget
We also have companies based locally, interstate and overseas that occasionally run their own events and I would like for them (under their username) to be able to create an event and let everyone know about it, without intervention by me
and I would like individual members to have sophisted event management capabilities so they can notify everyone of any events they create, e.g. all VIP members can automatically create any event they choose and notify everyone about it, and have it come up on the "Upcoming Events" widget
Basically I want the software to empower the members to create, notify and manage (look at RSVPs etc) events, without even needing me to be alive lol
We have alot of events, I cant organise them all, and sometimes I am extremely tied up at work etc
So I definately want it to be easy for designated groups to be able to manage events in my absense
Currently its a very manual process and I must do everything from booking venues, to sending mass email out, to sending 200+ text messages from my unlimited sms plan etc, phoning people, other organising, I think the software can automate alot of this
You can create weekly recurring events. For your weekly meeting, just create a weekly recurring event.
You can designate which permission masks can add (and edit, etc.) events in the calendar. Create a custom permission mask that can add events, then give it to your select members or member groups to only allow them to add to the calendar.
Users can be notified of new events by subscribing to the calendar. I realize this is a 'manual' process on the part of the user, but frankly, I think that is only right - users should opt into/out of the email notifications that they want to receive. In any event, if a user subscribes to the calendar, any new event they will be notified of.
All upcoming events will show in the 'Upcoming Events' hook that displays on the board index (assuming you have it enabled).
Thus....everything you mentioned is already present, unless I'm misunderstanding what you are talking about.
