    It would be very useful if you could create events and then “guests” could advise by email whether they would be attending and how many would be attending.
    I suppose it could be that you can use the Events tickets option, create a “Free Ticket” and then direct people to the URL where they could then fill in a form to email the information to the organiser or Admin, would be much “nicer” if it was possible to clik a button and send a reply form to the organiser directly.

    Rob, we have this feature in our to-do list for Events Maker but it is not ready yet, and I can’t give you any estimation on when it will be included in the plugin.

    Hi,
    Any news for the RSVP feature? It is possible to live without a built-in payment system, but not being able to have people sign up for the event and collect their info makes Event Maker utterly inconvenient to use for things like workshops and lectures.
    If this is not on the priority list, maybe you can recommend a plugin or widget, which will work with Events Maker to add this functionality?

    @irakly, could you describe what functionalities would it need to work for you?

    Bartozs, I am running a school http://www.artphotoacademy.com, which offers both online content and offline live events (workshops, lectures and short intensive courses).
    Events Maker is perfect for scheduling and announcing offline events, however, because there is no built-in capability to capture information about people who sign up, it is nearly impossible to track those who plan to pay at the door. Another thing is analytics, which is impossible, as Event Maker does not keep history of students who signed up.
    So, this is what would be great to have:

    1. RSVP system where people can sign up for an event, and their info collected
    2. For people who already registered on a site, one-click signing up
    3. Ability to tie PayPal buttons to tickets. This one is really easy, as all it needs is a field where a button code can be pasted.

    The last thing, which is not related to RSVP issue is that event templates do not recognize widget panels correctly. The left panel appears on the bottom of a page, and the right panel is not visible at all.

    I am sorry, one more thing regarding RSVP:

    4. Ability to generate and dynamically show a list of people signed up for an event and a short code for this.

    Thanks for the follow-up.

    We’ve started working on it.

    The registration / attendee management will not include payment handling as we will have our own ecommerce plugin doing that (still under heavy development).

    Any update on this feature? I’m interested in the same features as irakly. Just the registration part would be great. Payment mechanism can come later.

    Thank you.

    Hey Doug,
    That’s the direction we are heading but this is a pretty complex feature and still in (late?) development stage.
