Private event – will it send upcoming datetime notifications

We set events to private to hide them from the website.

If there are registrations on a private event will the upcoming datetime notifications message be sent to those registered emails?

If so, what is the best way to prevent that from happening?

We want to keep the notifications on for public events.

Thanks in advance for any guidance if I am asking the wrong question or not seeing something obvious that would be easy to customize.

Hi Daniel,

By default, the AUEN add-on will only pull events with a status of publish or sold out, so private events (which have a status of ‘private’) would be excluded from the query.

If preferred you can confirm this yourself by searching for the FHEE__EventEspresso_AutomatedUpcomingEventNotifications_domain_services_commands_message__eventStatusForRegistrationsQuery filter within the add-ons code.

You’ll see something like this:

protected function eventStatusForRegistrationsQuery()
    return (array) apply_filters(
        array('publish', EEM_Event::sold_out)

Meaning it returns an array with ‘publish’ and ‘sold_out’ as values, although obviously that array is filtered so you could be adding additional statuses (stati depending on where you are 🙂 ) but I’m guessing you then wouldn’t be asking the above.

Thank you for the kind reply and information.

Coming up on my first year with EE and I have to say I am satisfied with all the capabilities.

Thanks for a great product and great support!
