We’ve heard your feedback over the years, and Events has consistently been one of, if not the, most-requested feature for 3.0. So today, we’re pleased to announce the long-awaited release of Events for Ning 3.0.
Events are an important component of a successful community, as they allow members to come together, whether virtually or online, at a designated time and place. As we rebuilt Events, we’ve kept the good parts from Events on 2.0 and added some improvements to make it even more powerful.
In addition to Public and Private events, we’ve added a new privacy option: Semi-private. While Private events will be hidden from people who aren’t invited, Semi-private events will still appear in the list of upcoming events. However, only the event date, picture, and title will be visible. People who aren’t already invited to your Semi-private event will need to request an invitation to view the event details and RSVP.
Updated RSVP Options & Google Calendar
RSVP options now include a Going, Might go, and Not going responses, whose wording can be changed in the Language Editor. You can now RSVP directly from the Events page, in addition to the event details page, using the “Are you going?” drop down menu.
Once you’ve RSVP’d, you can easily add the event to your Google Calendar, using the Google Calendar button found under the RSVP drop down menu on each event.
While network-wide Search is still in the works, we’ve added a search field to Events. Search through all events or through a specific date range using the “Date range” drop down menu next to the search field.
This is only the first of many more features to come, so please check back here again soon for more announcements in the coming weeks and months!
