Hi EE Staff… The group I’m working with is using EE to replace meet up.com, and one of the most often requested features is the ability to email a list of upcoming events — either the next two weeks, or perhaps the next 5 events — on a weekly basis.

I currently am using an RSS feed of posts to drive a MailChimp campaign that is sent each week notifying users of *new* events, but that doesn’t seem to be doing the trick as we often add events months in advance of when they happen, and by the time the date rolls around, people have forgotten about them.

Given that, do you guys know of any way to send an email campaign that will fit the bill?

Hi Mike,

Personally I think you are on the right track with using Mailchimp, though you can email from Event Espresso, it isn’t geared for mailing lists as such.

Apart from manually curating the emails, which would probably be the best but time consuming, what about setting up a dedicated page on your site, and simply linking to that in the email?

We have an upcoming mini plugin thats being tested currently that might fit the bill, called the Calendar Table. It’s still in Alpha stage so has bugs, otherwise I would send you a copy. I would keep an eye out for it in the Pre Release section though.

I think you will need to use the Custom Files addon, [ESPRESSO_TABLE] as it allows you to set a max date, for example [ESPRESSO_TABLE max_days=”30″]. This will probably need some cleaning up in the template as Custom Files code is designed as a base rather than a polished finish.
