The Events view can be accessed here: Components >> RSEvents!Pro >> Events. This area is designed to provide a listing for your saved events, along with some key functions, making this an essential part of RSEvents!Pro.

The Events view consists out of three areas:

The toolbar area, offers most of the view's functionality, as described below:

  • New - clicking on this button will allow you to create a new event. You can read more on the event creation workflow here
  • Edit - selecting one event and clicking on this button, will allow you to edit the event details
  • Preview - selecting one event and clicking on it will allow you to view the event in the Joomla! front-end area.
  • Delete - clicking on this button will permanently delete all the selected events
  • Duplicate - selecting one event and clicking on this button will create an exact replica of the event with a "copy" text appended to the event name.
  • Publish - this will publish all selected events. Published events can be displayed int-o the front-end area
  • Unpublish - this will unpublish all selected events. Unpublished events are not displayed into the front-end area
  • Archive - clicking this button will archive the selected events. An archived event implies that this will be excluded from front-end listings (unless specified otherwise)
  • Cancel event - select one or more events and click on this button to cancel them
  • Featured - select one or more events and click on this button to make them 'Featured' events
  • Export to iCal - you can select multiple events and export them into an iCal compatible format. This will produce a standard ICS file. This includes the following event information: name, description, start and end date, location, city and address
  • Export to CSV - you can select multiple events and export them into a CSV format. The following event details are included: name, start and end date, description, URL, email, phone, location name, location address and city
  • Clear ratings - this will clear the ratings of all selected events. Once cleared, these can't be restored
  • Sync dates - using this button you can synchronize all day events that were created in another timezone to your current global timezone
  • Batch - this option allows you to configure the frontend settings for groups of events (select the events, in the listing, using their associated checkboxes)

Display filters

The display filters offer complete means of controlling what is displayed within your event listing areas. This only applies for the back-end view. This is composed out of three fields:

  • searching area: where the search will be made. Essentially this is a dropdown with the following options: name, description, location, category, tag, featured, status, show child events, starting from and ending on.
  • searching rule: is, is not, contains, does not contain
  • keyword: the word by which the search will be done
  • ordering option: depending on what parameter do you wish to have the searched events ordered when displayed. This includes the following options: start date, end date, name, location and owner
  • order: the order in which the events are displayed. You can order them: ascending or descending.

Event listing

List your events, according to the configured display filter. By default, it includes the following information: event name, rating, start and end date, rating, location, owner, category, tags and publishing status.

To improve the event management workflow the listing can be divided within the following areas:

  • ongoing events: events that are running, e.g. the current date is in between the event start and end dates.
  • this week events: events that will occur in the current week.
  • this month events: events are occurring within the current month.
  • next month events: events that will occur next month.
  • upcoming events: will display the events that will occur within two months from the current date.
  • past events: events that have past, e.g. the event end date is older then the current date.

RSEvents!Pro allows you to mark as featured. This is associated with the Featured events module, you can read more about it here.


Within the listing area, an event can be present only in one area. For example an event will not be displayed in the past events and within the this week area.

Each event will display the number of Subscribed users as well as the Unsubscribed ones. The event owners will be able to view a list of unsubscribed users while logged in to the frontend area > Admin Options area of his event.

Users can also remove their ratings given to a specific event.
