Hi Folks;

The default setting for the event reminder comes up as 8 hours.  Is it possible to change this default on both the event view and event edit controls (eg 3 days)?  

In our web site testing focus sessions, the users would click on "remind me", before changing the time, and then say OOPS....  In our situation, 3 days would be ideal.  Also, would it be possible for the user to cancel this reminder, and re-submit it?  If this is not possible, I'll put it in the codeplex as an enhancement request.

Regards,
Rigel

Hi Rigel,

The default value isn't configurable through the module settings, but if you are prepared to edit EditEvents.ascx you can set it. txtReminderTime and ddlReminderTimeMeasurement are the things to look for.

The values you set in the edit control for an event are what are then used in the event view. i.e. it is configurable per event.

There isn't a way to cancel the reminder at this time, though potentially it would be relatively easy to allow a resubmission of a reminder. Some of the logic is there for Registered users. For unregistered users, there isn't a way to authenticate them, so I probably wouldn't allow resetting of the reminder since there is no way to prove the ownership of the request.

Happy to take thoughts on that.

Roger

Hi Roger;

Thanks- I had edited the aspx file before with the Custom Fields labels and help text. That was before I discovered how these settings can be changed through the admin language page.  I looked there for the default settings of reminder time, too, but didn't find them. I also tried the resetting the reminder time on editing the event, and it did show up correctly on the subsequent view event. I was remembering that in the previous version this setting in edit event reverted back to the default under "view event."   

It would be good for someone to see their reminder settings, and be able to re-submit with a different reminder time, even if the reminder time has already passed, (and been sent) but it is still before the event start time.  If the previous reminder time has passed, it would just make a new one, and if it hasn't passed, then the reminder time would be updated. 

One thing I notice on the development installation is that enrolling users in the event from the "advanced settings" page seems to be very slow. Typically, the office staff will check users off a list (filtered by role), and then select "enroll selected users". It seems inordinately slow - taking several seconds.  We have anywhere from 1 to 12 people enrolled in an event, and usually they are on different pages of the displayed user list.  Is it possible to change (increase) the number of users that are displayed in the checkbox list on the page?  That would make for fewer pages to complete one cadre of enrollments. Do you have any suggestions on how this can run faster?  (Some events are self-enrolled, but most are assigned by the office staff.)

Are there any changes in the works for the 6.1 beta 6?  We are going production on our web site in about a month, and critically need the 6.1 functionality. I have tested the beta 6 release for the functions that we are using, and it seems quite stable. We have no paid events, no moderated enrollments, etc. 

All the best,

Rigel

Hi Rigel,

The defaults are in EditEvents.ascx. I don't think the functionality has changed recently. I've highlighted the defaults below.

<td class="SubHead" style="white-space:nowrap;" valign="top">
    <asp:TextBox id="txtReminderTime" cssclass="dnnFormRequired NormalTextBox" runat="server" MaxLength="3" width="50" Font-Size="8pt">8</asp:TextBox>
    <asp:DropDownList id="ddlReminderTimeMeasurement" runat="server" Font-Size="8pt" cssclass="NormalTextBox">
        <asp:ListItem Value="m" resourcekey="Minutes">Minutes</asp:ListItem>
        <asp:ListItem Value="h" resourcekey="Hours" Selected="True">Hours</asp:ListItem>
        <asp:ListItem Value="d" resourcekey="Days">Days</asp:ListItem>
    </asp:DropDownList>
    <asp:RequiredFieldValidator id="valBadReminderTime" runat="server" cssclass="dnnFormMessage dnnFormError" ErrorMessage="Invalid Reminder Time (1-30 days, 15-60 minutes, 1-24 hours)" resourcekey="valBadReminderTime" ControlToValidate="txtReminderTime" Visible="False" EnableViewState="false"></asp:RequiredFieldValidator>
</td>

If you can raise an issue on CodePlex with regard the performance, I can investigate that. Putting it on CodePlex reminds me it needs doing. This is a control that was provided by a member of the community, I haven't really looked at it in detail. If you can let me know which bit is slow, we can investigate better. i.e. is it loading the user list that is slow, or doing that actual enrolment?

It looks like the page size is set by the size set in the user account admin - Admin/User Accounts/Settings/User Account Settings/Users Per Page.

In terms of 6.1.x beta. We aren't planning to add any new functionality. To be honest I think this is just waiting for Ernst Peter to have the time to finalise it. I'm just fixing bugs as they come up, which are pretty much minor items at the moment, nothing critical. You can check it here - https://dnnevents.codeplex.com/Source...

Cheers
Roger

Should also have said, to get the extra functionality around reminders, please do raise a request on CodePlex.
