[events] Confirming who attended an event - Change the button to indicate if they attended.


As an event organizer I often try to indicate who has attended them.

To be honest I didn't think I would use this feature at first but I have tried and can see how useful it could be.

The problem I find with it is that when you click the button to indcate someone has attended, the page refreshes but there are no visible changes to the buttons so I am not always sure if I have added someone. It would be really useful if, on the refresh, the button changed to indicate the person had attended rather than still asking to confirm it again.

I don't usually indicate who has not attended but wondered if this would be useful to others.

I would appreciate comments and feedback on this issue please.

Thanks again for all the hard work put into running this great site.

This is an interesting proposal. Let's wait for some feedback from other event organizers.

I believe this is a great idea..

I too was confused when the site asked me to confirm which members did and did not attend, but when I clicked on the buttons, nothing visible seemed to happen (other than a page reload).

then later I saw messages/comments were added to the event for members who were in the "I will attend" group but I clicked on "did not attend" for them, while nothing appeared for any other combination. the buttons also did not change.

also, do these attends/not-attends count somewhere else than on the event's page?

Sounds very worthwhile - event organisation, providing both social contact and also the chance to wrestle old friends and new is a key part of Meetfighters - we should give those who take the trouble to organise events all the support we can. It sounds a useful addition and alteration to me if it's possible.

I don't organise events so couldn't use it, but would love it if it prevented people showing events on their profile if they didn't attend.

For example I have events showing on mine where I had clicked on uncertain or not attending. It can give a false impression of a persons activity level.

I would like to have an option of button who has really attended the event. I have organized one event and some people who put themselves on a list, didn't attend it. In the same time if you check their profiles you see like they would have attended it, which is not true. To have a possibility (as organizer) of confirming who attended the event would be a great option in order to provide correct information. That might be very helpfull.

I've arranged a couple myself and didn't actually know of this option.
To be show who definitely attended I think would be a great option and as others have indicated it will give a more reliable view of a person's activity.
Slightly related I'm really uncertain why there is a tab for NOT ATTENDING really do we need to know that as then really this would every from all over the world who hasn't indicated attending or uncertain
