dpcalendar 5 4

We just released DPCalendar version 5.4 with some amazing new features. Or mission is to make one of the smartest Joomla event system out of DPCalendar. Beside the well know integration plugins to integrate your Google calendar, iCloud or Exchange events we are investing a large amount of time to make the booking and ticket system more convenient for you. Read on what we did on that part of DPCalendar and for more amazing new features.

Booking and tickets improvements

The biggest change in the booking part is to set an end date where no more bookings are allowed. This date can be set in the event settings and can be an absolute or relative date to the start date of the event. Further changes are that the event limit is now globally per user or mail address. This means a person can not book on the second booking more tickets when the limit is already reached on the first booking.

When the event changes, the ticket holders will get notified about the changes. It is also possible now to download the invoices and tickets in the back end. They can also be resent.

Overlapping checks

A check can be activated in the DPCalendar options when editing an event if it should be checked if there is already an event in that time frame. A warning will then be displayed above the input controls.


CSV plugin enhancements

The CSV plugin got a bunch of new settings. Per CSV file the admin can define now which column represents the field of the event. Additionally the delimiter and the enclosure can be set.
