We're already working on exciting new updates to help you level up your events:
Recurring events. Set up an event that recurs every week. or month, or day. Up to you. These could be weekly coaching groups or monthly Q&A sessions.
Let your members easily subscribe to the events calendar in their native calendar application (iCal, Gmail, Outlook, etc.) In the near future, they'll be able to automatically subscribe to all events in a space and add them to their calendar.
There are dozens of additional improvements like these on the way. We're just getting started — so stay tuned.
