Group Events in EasySocial

Group Events in EasySocial

Hey guys!

Did you guys know that, with the latest EasySocial 1.3.10, there's an option to create Events in your Groups? You can actually create events for your group members. It's very, very useful for those who wishes to manage their groups and create events for a specific group only. You can create it by navigating to your specific group first.

 Once you're in the group's main page, scroll down and click on the 'Events' under 'Applications'.

 You should arrive at the events page for your group. Click on the 'New Event' button.

From there, choose your category, fill up the form and click submit. Based on your site's setting, the event might need the admin's approval. Once everything has been approved, you should be able to view the event's info from your group's page.

There you have it! Easy way to create event for your specific groups. Gamers like me will usually use this to create events matchup, where my friends can get together and have fun. What about you guys?

EasySocial is the best social networking component for your Joomla site. The option to create Events for Groups is only available in the latest EasySocial (version 1.3.10). For those who are holding an older version, we'd highly suggest for you to get the latest version from your dashboard. You can also renew your license so that you can get the latest versions. Pen down your thoughts in the comment section, or post any technical inquiries via our official forum or by dropping us a ticket.

Typical day in the life of a Stackidea's product user:
1. Think about a great idea to add to an already great product
2. Express your idea to the Stackidea team on their forum
3. Get a reply in less than 2 hours apologizing for the delay of their answer
4. Wait a couple of weeks
5. Update your Stackidea products and see the magic happening.
6. Re-Subscribe to all Stackideas products for the next 3283729.4 years.

If everything in life were like that, you wouldn't need a VISA card... (for those who know the commercial).

10000% agree, Benoit! You've made my day, StackIdeas team... There's ony 1 thing left to make me happier - paid events :) Just in case you guys are bored on Sunday afternoon. :)

 
  1. Ahmad Justin    Witold Jermołowicz

Hey Witold! :)

Paid Events sounds interesting. We do, however, need to have some sort of a payment system in EasySocial first before we can implement such idea... OR we can talk to the Payplan team and see how it goes. Either way, this will be mentioned to our dev team; they'll decide whether it is to be implemented or not. Would be super-duper-awesome if you can pen this down in our Voices portal... :p

Great!! For me only a rating field for groups is necessary, then i can build my directory site. So, hurry up and i will renew shortly ;)
Update: Ah ok, mh mh.. you have too choose an category from the global event system.. not really what i need i think. e.g. you have a group "your family pet" in the category "hobby". now you want create an event "weekly meeting with pet" and you can choose the global event category "cooking"? is there a chance that you can disabling choose category for...

Hi Mike, thanks for the heads up! We'll look into this matter. ;)

 
  1. Paul Murray

Great stuff. Events combined with more video functionality should be extremely interesting indeed :)

 
  1. Ahmad Justin    Paul Murray

I agree! Video is on it's way. ;)

NICE!! I was waiting for group events since the Summer and you guys deliver again! Thanks for listening to your users' desires.

 
  1. Ahmad Justin    John Leake

No problem John. Thank you for your continuous support and kind patience. :D

I sauntered over to the voices section to vote for “Paid Membership & Free Memberships” and could not vote. Then I figured that the reason that I could not vote was wait for it…. Drum roll. I had already voted for it. Eureka! :D

 
  1. Ahmad Justin    Paul Murray

LOL I actually felt the suspense when I read through your comment.... :D

 
  1. issac

you guys are awesome ... it would be great if you could add testimonials and rating one another on different parameters
for example:
Photoshop 6/10
illustrator 7/10
java 8/10
and so on....

You should work on the realese of 1.4 no in new features we are still waiting for video feature and still the changelog doesnt change you didnt do anything with it

 
  1. Ahmad Justin    Paz

Hi Paz, thank you for your feedback. Well, the aforementioned features in the blog post is not really a 'new features' per se, it's just an enhancement of the current features in EasySocial. Our team are working very hard towards releasing the next EasySocial that will have the video functionality for our users.

It should be out pretty soon so stay tuned! ;)

 
  1. Witold Jermołowicz

Paz, I believe Mark and StackIdeas know what they do. Obviously all of us want some particular features to be introduced ASAP: me - additional fields in events + paid events; Paul Murray - videos and on, and on. A wish-list of features to release is endless. On other hand, pls. keep in mind, they working really hard to make us happier with EasySocial. I understand why sometimes they don't talk too much about what they're doing: can you imagine hundreds of people pushing them all the time: do...

Instead of pushing them, why don't you contribute as application developer for EasySocial or maybe some other way in order to make EasySocial better?
