I am a fan of the dnn events module and appreciate the work being done on the module. I have a couple of suggestions for enhancements that I hope you might consider.

1. Locations. If would be great if when adding events, locations can be defined by userid. So when I add an event, I only see my locations. Having free form locations  is fine if you are a single site administrator and are the only one entering events. We use events solely in group mode so it makes it cumbersome to have a list of 1000 locations.  To get around this I added a custom field for location but this isn't the right way.

2. When adding an event it would be nice to be able to assign it to multiple categories. It would also be nice to have locations and categories by module instance.

3. Have a search capability

4. Have a latest module that can be added to any page.

Thank your for your suggestions.

A quick feedback.

1. Locations must be portal wide atm, otherwise the master/sub calendar structure would not work. I understand that browsing through 1.000 is not easy. However, that was not the scope of the current version.

2. Multiple categories would be nice indeed. As for category and location per instance, see my previous point, they must be portal wide atm.

3  The events module is optimized for the integrated DNN search. If your events are on public pages, the event module generates the events in the SEO sitemap (using templates you can influence). In that case Google search should work in the best  possible way.

4. You can use the DNN Reports module to configure such a display. If you have some experience with SQL (it seem to me you have), it should not be such a difficult task. 

BTW If you have created a DNNreports definition for last Events, please submit the export XML file of DNN Reports as pull request (enhancement suggestion with attached code) to the Events module on GitHub. The good news is that you do not have to be a develper to submit pull requests...

We use this module for scheduling classes and testing for our training center. The following items would be great for use and may help others.


1. Add the option when posting a new event to override the "Notify Me" setting by the user. Most of the time we want everyone notified of the newly posted event but every now and then an event needs to be posted that notification is not necessary.


2. The ability to add a sub selection within the event sign up. We have a testing day on the 1st Tuesday of every month but offer 10 different test on that day so instead of having to post 10 events it would be better if we could post one event but provided a check box to select options or in our case tests.
