Over the past few years, I have written a lot of changes some big and some small to the free and pro version of the RSVP plugin. However, unless you comb through the changelog or if you were involved in the change yourself, it was doubtful you knew about the changes. Going forward when significant features are planned or are getting close to release I am going to start to write about them. Speaking of which…there are two significant changes that I want to write about now. I plan to have these changes released by the end of 2018.
Improvements in the Import Process
Currently, when importing attendees into an event, a person has to create a specific information layout in the Excel file. This can be time-consuming and error-prone. That will be changing soon as there will now be a two-step process where you can specify which column in the Excel file goes to which field the value should go to. The hope is to make it less time consuming and more accessible for people to use.
Front-end Attendee Management
With the business version of the plugin, you get an additional plugin that allows you to add attendees on the front-end. That is a pretty limited feature, but it is the start of something bigger. Soon there will be the ability to manage attendees via the front-end. This will make it so your clients can maintain the attendee list without having access to the admin area of their WordPress site.
Are there any other features you would like to see get added or improved in the plugins? If so let me know.
