this pre-release plugin has become deactivated with the following error message:

An error has occurred:
We’re sorry, but the Event Espresso Automated Upcoming Event Notifications addon was deactivated because version 1.0.0.rc.091 or higher is required with this version of Event Espresso core.
EE_System – deactivateIncompatibleAddon(Automated Upcoming Event Notifications) – 340

I’ve tried to download this new version from the pre-release channel but it doesn’t appear to be the right version.

have I missed something or do you simply need to upload the new version for us?

Thanks.

Hi there,

Actually there isn’t a new, updated version of the Automated Notifications add-on ready for beta testing yet. When it’s ready it will be made available to the pre-release channel.

OK. meanwhile, how can I keep using the existing version?

The existing version isn’t intended to be used on a production site. It was made available for beta testing only. If you want to continue beta testing you can install an older version of Event Espresso 4 like 4.9.53.p on a website and the current beta of the Automated Event Notification add-on can be tested on that site.

What’s the timeline please? I don’t really want to use an old version of EE. But currently it’s still trying (and failing) to send automated messages despite the plugin being inactive.

I do not have a timeline. You can deactivate the Automated messages by going to Event Espresso > Messages > Settings.

I’m in settings. There is no option to deactivate the automated messages – there’s no reference to them at all.
Yet in my messages it shows them queuing to go out (but never actually sending).
Does this mean you are no longer committing to this plugin?

No. It means it’s not ready for production use and I don’t have a timeline for when it will be ready.

OK, it’s been saving me hours each week so I hope its soon.

Do I need to worry about the emails that queue to go out but never actually deliver?

You can remove those from the queue and remove any event reminder cron tasks (via the Crontrol plugin) to make sure new batches of reminder emails do not get added to the messages queue.

Same problem here. Is this something that will be ready in 1-2 weeks, months, years? I know there are threads going back several years related to this feature and for us it is a ‘must have’. If its right around the corner, please let me know – otherwise we’re going to have someone build a custom solution.

Thanks
Charlie

Hi Charlie,
