Members to be able to submit events
Not supported, only administrators can create events.
Members have the ability to submit simple events which can be approved by administrators.
Even though it is not a direct implementation, I hope this could be helpful:
We just launched integration with Integromat platform, which helps to build automated workflows. We also provide several templates for quick start, and one of them allows to copy google calendar events into WA events. So if you share a google calendar for events submission, then the scenario could copy submitted events into your Wild Apricot account.
You can try this integration by this link https://www.integromat.com/en/integration/2275-copy-google-calendar-into-wild-apricot-events
I've been reading through the discussion on this thread and would like to present this suggestion:
A member could create an event. This event might not necessarily be run by the organization, but may be an independent event where there is an overlap of interest between the organization and the person posting it. There would only be certain fields that they could enter and would be publicly viewable, but they would not set a price or a registration form.
Once the event is submitted, it would have to be approved by the admin/organization. At that time it would be added to a calendar.
Perhaps instead of thinking like this as an "event", with all the fields associated with it, we should be thinking of this as a "calendar entry", which would have a limited number of general purpose fields for posting something to a date (it could be an event, or could be reminder of an important date, like all fees are due on this day, or an external event) that need not have a Registration associated with them. A member generated entry might be in a different colour, or even on a separate calendar of affiliated events.
Yes, We are looking for this option too! We would like to offer members the option of posting their own events. Also, is there a future option for those registered for the events to view who else is registered and leave a message? THANKS!

OK, thanks for the details.
It's on our list, though it will be a while before we get to this particular thing.
Yes, correct on hidden for approval and also not able to set pricing or registration parameters.
We use the events as a calendar as well and one of the things we do is help our members promote their events via our site.
Before switching over to your platform we used a calendar system that allowed members to submit and that worked very well for us and they liked it as well.
It is not mission critical as we now have them email us and then we input the event. It would help us streamline the process if they could submit their event on your platform and we could set pricing & registration parameters if needed.
Thank you for your prompt response!

Can you elaborate how do you see this working?
These suggested events should be hidden from everyone else until admin approves them correct?
I do not see members setting up the pricing and registration parameters - so I assume admin would have to add that, what do you think?
How is this different/better from having a discussion forum thread for this purpose - members can post ideas about events and admin can create appropriate events as needed?
