I like the idea. Engages participation from the get-go. Then if they choose to opt out fine.
I also create a page specifically for this. Since there is a work-around, or this is an easy solution, I would say it could be low on the priority list.
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
It would be really wonderful to have a way where members could fill out a form to post events. The submission would go into a holding section of the Events area, an email would be sent to Admin upon submission advising of the new request. And then admin could go in and activate.
This would be extremely helpful. I was told it might make it into the next or one after update. PLEASE try to implement this soon. I realize it means some fundamental adjustments, but it would be so worth it!!
I wholeheartedly support this function. We have a lot of events on behalf of our members. Currently I've created a form that they can download from any calendar then email it to us, but the time involved in then us personally adding all of these to our calendars is overwhelming. Looks to me like many people would like this feature. ANYTHING you can do to move this up in the time line of implementation would be GREATLY appreciated.
