While we’re still cranking away at improving Events Calendar PRO and are already working on the 2.0.2 release, we’ve also been focusing some of our downtime on another product: the Events Importer add-on. Last night we finally got it to a place where it’s stable and as a result are looking for some beta testers to help identify whatever bugs remain.
The plugin is lightweight and only serves one purpose: importing events, venues & organizers from a CSV file into Events Calendar PRO. You plug the CSV in, map the columns so the system knows what data to attach to what PRO fields, and it takes care of the rest. At the end you’ve got a whole slew of events that you didn’t have to manually enter one by one.
Check it out in action:
While there isn’t a whole lot to beta tester here, we could definitely use some fresh eyes on the plugin. We’re looking mostly for bug reports, moreso than feature requests — we’re intentionally trying to keep this simple and lightweight, so the only features that we’d really be adding at this point are those needed to help avoid confusion.
That’s where you come in. If you think you’ve got a good eye for catching bugs, are a current Events Calendar PRO customer and are willing to provide some feedback between now and next Friday (11/11/11), shoot me a note. Please do not reply in the comments field. We’re looking for a max 10 testers here, so the first 10 meeting the criteria above who respond get it. Looking forward to hearing what you guys dig up.
