I have used it for a month, developing a site, but found an issue with the data design that causes a limit. You cannot search for events based on geographic locations. You can search for events based on the name of the venue or date or category of event. This leads me to think the developers intended its use for a smaller scale, local environment. As is, if you get a 1000 events with distinct locations over the course of time, you will have a 1000 location drop down box to choose from when setting up new events. (Locations of events are global and put in a separate table, not tied to the event in the same table.)
When this issue is addressed, the component will be very valuable. You can integrate (somewhat, not all aspects of) RSForms Pro to get more data when people sign up. This is nice.
The component allows you to sell "tickets" to events (via paypal or 'wire transfer' - no one uses that in the USA) but the integration doesn't allow subscriptions or recurring payments.
This is a very affordable add-in if your site wants to have event listings and an events calendar. I recommend it. I think the improvements it needs will come over the course of time.
the support is great. Not always consistent in their respons and sometimes a bit (too) short, but they will get you where you want to go!
The best feature though is the amazing support from RSJoomla. You can be safe in the knowledge that if you buy this component pro help is at hand. They went above and beyond the call of duty in order to help me out and even implemented some changes for me!
Very impressed and looking forward to future developments from them...
I can create custom event registration forms for different events in only a few minutes.
RSJoomla has created a winning combination here, and are now easily a couple of my most valuable components available. I will be implementing them on every single website that I develop.
The developers are exttremely responsive and do their best to please.
I would have given this an excellent rating except for some annoyances.
As already mentioned, the inability to have guests register for an event and remain guests was a strange design decision and not something you can get around.
It is still very young and if it doesn't do all you want straight out of the box, the configuration options are quite limited with many modules offering very few parameters (the calendar module has one which allows you to change the starting day of the week, for example).
If those things don't bother you, I highly recommend it and in a couple of releases if these guys continue to listen to their customers it will be an excellent component.
did run into some problems but tech support was really fast and efficient(thanx guys:)
this is a perfect system for running any form of ticket and reservations management.
best price/quality ratio!
I like the possibility of individual template for each show
looking forward to new versions and new functions
