Can question groups be set up so multiple users can use them?

We have multiple users entering events on our site.

Right now, it appears that only the user that created a question group is able to select it during the event creation process.

Is there a way to set up the groups so they can be accessed by all users?

Hi Lara,

By design, the questions, question groups, etc. are designed to be shared. What you’re seeing might be a restriction on the groups you have set up. Make sure the user role has the right Event Espresso capabilities: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1paQ8gdiZmIpOTJetRtk0_7GZfsWIXkioqrWmXxS4FZo/edit#gid=20 (see the “Registration Form Capabilities”).

If you want you can copy and paste the capabilities you have for that role and we can review them with you.

Actually Garth’s answer applies only to Event Espresso 4. Since it appears that your site is still using Event Espresso 3, you can add one of these shims posted here:

https://gist.github.com/joshfeck/bc142af122836b3a081b

The first shim works with the Event Espresso 3 Roles and Permissions add-on and the second shim works with Roles and Permissions Pro.

You can add the code shim to a functions plugin.

Is there a shim fix like the one outlined above also allow different users to access coupon codes during event creation? Right now we have the same problem with that as with the question groups. Only the person that created them can add them to a new event.

Hi Laura,

There’s no shim for the above, you would need to edit a core file to remove it.

\event-espresso\includes\admin-files\event-management\promotions_box.php

On line 69 you should see:

if (function_exists('espresso_member_data') && !empty($event_id)) {

Comment from there to line 78, like this – http://take.ms/etem6

The /* and */ are multi line comments, they comment out any PHP in between then.

Note that we generally do not recommend modifying core files, the above would need a filter added to EE3 to disable it, so if an update is released for EE3 you’ll need to reapply the above.

However, the functionality above is from the EE3 roles and permissions add-on which it appears you are running but may not actually need? It basically devives each user into their own ‘event manager’ so they can work on their own events but not others.
