Add Events From the Front-End

A long requested feature has been finished.  You can now have your staff or members add events directly from the front end. To add an event request form to the front-end, insert the shortcode [event_form] into a post or page. We’ve created a user friendly form that has all the back-end fields for entering event, venue and organizer information.

You can also opt to e-mail all users when a new event has been added.  This is also an option when adding or editing events on the back-end dashboard as well.  Other fixes in the version 1.47 release include better mobile formatting of the sidebar widgets as well as Danish translation!  We have French included already and are working on Spanish.

Upcoming Employee Birthdays Widget

Happy Birthday to you! I can see the layer cake waiting in the boardroom now…  Finally you can add employees to the Upcoming Birthday sidebar widget for all to see.  You can adjust the number of days out that the widget detects.  Birthdays are added using the pop-up calendar in the “Your Profile” area of the Dashboard. See the screenshots below for more, or mosey over to our demo to view.
