You asked and we listened! Based on your feedback, we recently released a major update to the FooEvents Multi-day plugin which makes it possible to create events that repeat on specific calendar days. Using the FooEvents Multi-day plugin you can sell tickets that will give your attendees access to the event over multiple calendar or sequential days. What makes this feature unique is that the reoccurring days are not limited to weekly, monthly, or annual occurrences, but rather it gives you the ability to choose the exact days that the event will repeat ensuring that you have granular control.
Here are a few examples of how events could be configured in order to offer multi-day access:
- Zoo Season Pass – Only valid on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays until December, 30 2018
- 3 Day Conference – Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
- Surf Lessons – Includes three classes: Monday (Introduction), Wednesday (Skills class), Friday (Examination)
- Saturday Yoga Classes – Every Saturday for 6 months
- Spinning Classes – Mondays through Fridays until the end of the current calendar year
- Mid-week Pizza Special – Al-you-can-eat pizza every Wednesday (valid until 18 July)
Next, you will need to create an event. If you need help doing so please be sure to visit our help guide.
Setup a multi-day reoccurring event
Open your event in the WordPress Admin Area and select the ‘Event’ tab under the product settings. Our example event is going to take place every Friday night for 4 weeks in March 2018. Choose ‘4’ from the ‘Number of days’ dropdown menu.
Next, select the ‘Select Days’ option for the ‘Multi-day type’ field. This will make it possible to specify exact calendar days. The ‘Sequential days’ would simply add the set number of days starting at the event start date.
Specify the day each occurrence of the event will take place:
Lastly, complete the remaining event information fields as required and publish the event.
Your event will now repeat on the specified days. Attendees can purchase a single ticket that will give them access to each day. The FooEvents Check-ins App for iOS and Android and the FooEvents Express Check-in plugin will offer separate check-in options for each day making it easy to manage attendee access for the event. The FooEvents Calendar plugin will also display each day of the event as illustrated below.
