There may be some repeats on other items I have mentioned in the past but I keep finding more and more issues as we prepare to go live.

In the FlexEvent Module

1- When using the "Managing Events" It is very cumbersome to manage events based on the sort order, actually I don't believe it sorting at all. When using this view it should sort on the "Date" then "Event Name", then "Location".

2- When adding new events if you fill in all the fields going from tab to tab it will not save the price of the event. I am not sure if this is related to when you upload an event logo during creation of if its just happens. I know that I have noticed it happens alot when keying in new events.

3- When creating a new event it should include the contact name of the person that is hosting the event with the already included email and phone number. This Contact name and the email address should also show up on the event detail page over on the right with the Phone number.

4- When trying to registered for events that are fully booked or any other status that shows up on the detail screen needs to stand out more.


In the FXE-CrossModuleBrowser

1- When you select one of the event in the list it brings you to the details. Over on the left if you select the Venue Hyper Link it takes you to the Flex Event module for some reason. I don't truly understand why there is a hyperlink.

- I my case at our review meeting no one cared for how you could search through the results on the FlexEvent module. Leaning towards the CrossModuleBrowser filtering behavior to be more user friendly. However with that active Hyperlink taking you back to the FlexEvent module it creates confusion.

2- Is there anything that triggers a past event to become inactive so it doesn't show up in the public list. I have had to go into several events and manually change the "Suspended Field" to "True" to prevent the public seeing past events. I believe this same behavior shows up in the Flex Event module as well.


In the FreeEvent List

1- One of my pages that contains another module and the FreeEvent List module creates interesting results. When I am searching through other data in the second module, the FreeEvent List will sometime render nothing on the page. This can be seen here http://dnn.atn.org/OurServices.aspx

Additional Info:

FlexEvent Module

5- This token doesn't work in the templates, [ADMISSION] – Price to admit, Free Admission will be displayed if it is free.

6- Regarding the www.addthis.com feature of emailing a description of the event to someone I noticed and issue. Originally our site was built using the URL of dnn.atn.org as a test URL until we went live thus adding the portal alias or www.atn.org, dnn.atn.org and atn.org.

Now that we are live all the social network and email link icons in the description contain the old URL of dnn.atn.org and not www.atn.org. I will have to go through the data to manually edit the information, however this should be using the DNN feature where you only have to add the ~/Portal/xx/the rest of the URL and DNN fills in the rest.

Follow up on Issue 6, you can get around this by going into Admin - Site Settings and change the Default Alias to the preferred one.

At first, thank you very much for your valuable feedbacks!

1, I'll review the possibility to add sorting options.
2, I tried to enter the price in the Registration tab, then switched to other tabs and switched back, the price is not affected at all. Can you use a browser inspection tool, such as Firebug, to see if encountered any script error on this page?
3, This will be reviewed.
4, you can show me a screenshot of the appearance of your current event detail page, and a mockup of what exactly you wish it to be. I'll check to see if I can fully(or partially) incorporate these changes.

FXE-CrossModuleBrowser
1, The Venue link allows visitors to see all events that happens in this location. I can let you know how to hide it if you don't like it.
2, Finished events should automatically become "Finished" and won't show up again. If you have this problem, you can give me your host access and I'll login to your website to figure it out why.

FreeEvent List
I would like to see how it works on your website too, jut like the previous question. I just tried to do some postbacks in other modules which are placed on the same page of FreeEventList module, but failed to reproduce this problem.


[ADMISSION] issue
I could not reproduce this problem too. Actually this token is within the standard display template of many views.

Addthis issue.
I believe this has nothing to do with the alias. No matter what alias you use, Addthis, facebook, twitter will still record the full URL of your DNN page. The only workaround I can think about is to temporarily hide the module which contains addthis features during test stage.

Doing back in the order listed..

1- That would be great.
2- Did you attempt to save the event, thats the key. Go in the order of the tabs and populate them, then save.
3- Thanks
4- I can put something together and email it to you.

1- Yes I would like to know how to remove it..
2- I am still watching this but I think it waits till the end date and time to come off, Can you confirm this. I would be better to have a cut off date for bookings that the end user could define.

Play around here to see what happens..

This token [ADMISSION] does not work I have attempted to use it on the not paid template several times.

Ok after going back and reading the manual, it appears that you can't use [ADMISSION} token in a email. I would have thought all tokens should be able to be used anywhere within the module.

Also regarding the [EVENTDURATION] and [EVENTLOCATION] you have some punctuation issues

Monday, Mar 14, 2016 - Friday, Mar 18, 2016
Cullman ATN Center ,206 3rd St SW, Cullman, AL 35055, USA

I don't think you need a comma after the day of the week on [EVENTDURATION]

on [EVENTLOACTION] you have a space then a comma where it shows Cullman ATN Center ,. You need to get rid of the space.

Another issues I see is if an event has started you are still able to register for the event. Considering we are using it for classes this is not an ideal situation. You should be able to toggle if you wish to allow or disallow registration once an event has started.

Looking at the EventBooking.ascx.resx you have a misspelling.

<data name="BookingWillOpen.Text">
<value>Advance booking is required, the bookiing will open on [DATE].</value>
</data>

Remove the extra "i" from Bookiing in the <value> tag

Looking at the SharedResources.resx you have a misspelling.

<data name="EventCannotBeDeleted.Text">
<value>This event cannot be deleted becausse it has already been booked</value>
</data>

Remove the extra "s" in Becausse

Reviewing how the data is stored in the database I see there is 3 payment status levels (Paid, Pending,NotPaid with the corresponding values of 3,2,1).

Can you explain where the Pending Status comes into play, I don't see anywhere of changing this status through the module. So I am curious what its purpose is and if the status is manually change does the registered end user receive an email from the template area?

Another question I have.

I have built an interface to directly interact with the FlexBooking Table to allow my to better sort and filter the data, and at times modify some of the data fields quickly. I noticed that if I modify the data of an event it will no longer so up as an available event in the list to the general public. However if I go into the FlexEvent module and select Manage Events I can open the same one I edited outside of your module and not make a single change and just click "Update" and it will show back up in the list.

I have compared the data before and after and the only difference is the fact your module updates the last modified date column, and I don't when I manually change it. Am I missing something becasue I would not have though this would make a difference.

Following up on the FXE-CrossModuleBrowser issue number 2. Items are indeed not coming off the list once finished.

Price not saved issue:
I tried it once more, entered some price, saved the event, then edit the event to see if the price is there. It is working fine. You can let me try it on your website if you still face this issue.

The hyper link on "Venue":
You can either delete EventWhenWhere module from your event detail page(if it works in custom event detail page mode), or manually hide the lnkLocation control in EventWhenWhere.ascx.

FXE-CrossModuleBrowser, issue 2:Flex Events cust off expired events when they are expired.

I correct the typos. Thank you very much for letting me know. I fixed these 2 typos, and they will be included in the next minor upgrade.

This has become a pretty long thread and focused on multiple issues. If you still need assistance, please create new threads and focusing on one issue in one post.

Thanks.

I went ahead and moved some of the outstanding questions to different threads.

Regarding the Price not saving, I had it do the same thing today.

You have to fill in all the data within the tab order from left to right, including selecting a photo on the last tab. If you save from there it will not save the price for an Adult and I have to go back and edit the event and add the price all over again.

To make sure we are on same page and to resolve this issue, can you make a screencase to show what exactly you did? Then I can replicate this process and figure out where goes wrong quickly.
