Hi, I have EE installed but now I need also the espresso-recurring add-on, but its telling its only working with version 3. So what can I do in order to get it working? Its quite urgent that we are able to publish multiple/recurring events with same pricing but different locations/venues.

Hi there,

Currently, there is no recurring events manager for EE4.

As it standard with EE4 the best way is to create your first event in the ‘series’ and use that as a template for the others, edit the first event and click the duplicate button at the top of the page.

Now edit the duplicate to be the next event in the series by changing the dates, title and slug, then update.

Hi again,
Thanks for getting back to me on this. Does this mean we have to setup a new event for every single date? That would mean our event list page is full of events as of many different dates. Do I get you correctly?

Yes, that is correct.

That would mean our event list page is full of events as of many different dates.

Yes, your events will show as individual events in the list, however, which event list are you using? We have multiple different methods to output events in Event Espresso.

Or do you mean the admin event list?

We have multiple different methods to output events in Event Espresso.

Which ones?

Im up to add all the events here: http://cmvirtual.de.dedivirt321.your-server.de/veranstaltungen-2/ (scroll down to section WORKSHOPS & SUMMITS). My issue is that the list will be extremely long by going the suggested way.
How can we make it better?

You would have had exactly the same issue with EE3 as each ‘recurrence’ of an event was a separate event, the recurring events manager automatically created them in bulk for you.

Which ones?

The standard [ESPRESSO_EVENTS], Calendar, Table View, Grid view are some examples.

Looks like you’ve created your own output.

One option is to like those sections to another page and use the table view template to list the events of that type on that page. So rather than pulling the events directly there, you create those sections and link them to an event list for the event.

How many datetimes do you need within a specific event?

For example how many ‘recurrances’ of the ‘Live Q&A Calls mit Matthias Kolbusa’ event are there?

There will be up to 10 datetimes.
We have this event Detail Page and basically we simply want to make it possible that a user chooses the date on this detail page and then hitting submit to checkout. Either chooses the date separately or connecting a specific ticket to a specific event date.

Thx for your options, but unfortunately none of these do what I need.
Do you have any alternative?

10 datetimes should be fine within a single event.

So create a single event, with 10 datetimes, each datetime is considered an ‘instance’ of the event.

Then create 10 tickets, 1 for each datetime and set each individual ticket to only a single datetime (click the cog icon for the ticket and set 1 single datetime on each ticket).

Your users select tickets, not datetimes, tickets give access to datetimes but it’s the tickets the user selects.

So heres is a quick example with 3 datetimes – https://monosnap.com/file/iPkYxaii2aqsL81VV1hMIgKSsPgMAd

Then within each ticket:
1 – https://monosnap.com/file/e2ebhikeCEJYl4c0kwUsCugT97crBZ
2 – https://monosnap.com/file/qBvu7D40y0CHaBeTOIvyYdB05NKCNC
3 – https://monosnap.com/file/hyYNwEDQRszoo7MeOSwQhpm7NnKfuQ

Then on the ticket selector, the user selects the correct ticket for the datetime (you’ll likely want to include the date in the ticket name).

That sounds like a good way, thank you. Now one more challenge:
Some of the datetimes are assigned to different venues. Do you have also a suggestion for this?

Not currently, venues are assigned to the event, not the datetimes so you can only have a single venue with the above.
