I am already a paying customer, but apart from my own site with workshops, I am thinking of setting up a site for my local area where organizations etc. can submit events to create a “Whats happening in my city” kinda site.

Is there a way to do this with EventEspresso? The ideal site would have a calendar, a grid view and a map view where you could get all the events today with a marker on the map.

It should allow one or two people to get access to add events for a venue. The venue info should only be updated by the admin as this should not change too much.

Hi Svein,

You could use the built-in capabilities system to set up a role for user accounts where they’d only have the ability to add events for specific venues, and they’d only be able to edit the events they add.

There is more information about the capabilities system in the documentation:
