COYO: Ideas & Roadmap

Event: Participation without invitation

User should be able to participate in an event, without being inveted.
Use Case: Many of our pages have event calenders and all colleagues are invited to these events. But we cannot invite all. So it would be nice, if one could click on Accept, without being invited in order to see it in my events and for the admin to see, how many are coming. Like Facebook events.

        Total agree! I wanne use events also to find out if there is a need of the employees to this event. Like: When 20 people participate in the event until 20th of June the event will take place.

        Or if you just offer an open event to the people and want to find out how much preperation the event need.

        Just two of many examples!

        Absolutely agree. We offer a lot of events and have a constant stream of new users. It is hardly possible to invite all new users to the events. But so far they do not see relevant events which collides with our business model. So, please implement this feature: New users should see all events (of course with the right permission) and be able to attend, also without invitation.

        No, problem!

        Yes, there is a way to add events directly to your calendar. With version 14 (which is the latest cloud version) we introduced an ICS download which you can directly connect with your calendar application on your computer (or mobile device). There is a brief explanation in this blog article: https://www.coyoapp.com/blog/externe-workspace-mitglieder

        We are also working on a direct integration with Outlook in O365 and Google Calendar.

        An is there a possibility to add an event to your calendar? Like outlook for example? When you say attend you have the possibility to add it directly to your work calendar.

        Nothing secure - but the plan is to improve a few flaws in the general concept like:
        - making it easier to create public / private events
        - invite all members of a workspace / subscribers of a page
        - edit the admins afterwards and do not display them as hosts

        That's good news, Sven! Can you already give an overview on the planned improvements for events?

        We use the events to organize joind travells with a car between different locations. It would make sense that somebody can join the event ( = join the car ride ) without being invited.

        For us it´s really important too...we often use the event app for events that are interesting for the whole company (e.g. Info meetings, sport events...), so that everybody interested in the event can join voluntarily. We don´t want to invite certain colleagues or the whole company because the events are not mandatory and colleagues shouldn´t be flooded with notifications.

        +1
        Right now it is sometimes too complicated to invite everybody.

      • Florian commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I 2nd that - please implement this feature.

        Use Case:
        We have Info Meetings / Early Bird Meetings which everyone can attend. Furthermore when a new employee joins coyo one always hast to invite him / her additionally which is quite annoying.
