I do not like it, since is possible that come rogue events, also in case of every two weeks ... what happen if one weeks is skipped, and all the other delayed by one ?

i would see much better an option to clone an event even if past, copying all data but partecipants and date to a new one, that if necessary can be edited, or just filled with the right date. In this way there are no problems in case someone is forgetting his chain of events.

participants should be able to join only 1 (one) date, in order to know how many people are coming every time. somebody should not be automatically added to the 2nd date, just because he joined the meeting on the first date. We can achieve this by having a counter (shown in the title) and participants have only the option to join certain dates.

Each event is separate, so in term of adhesion it is just as if they were separate events.
What I proposed is not to flag an event as "recurring" but to have a button "clone event" so it is just question of changing the date.

Cloning clone only description, location, propose same time, same organizers, but does not copy the participants' registrations, so there is not the risk you are talking about.

Activity tools needs some improvements (from a suggestion of almorsen)

1.- recurring events

it will be great to have some kind of tool to avoid needing creating every time the recurring activities (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or yearly). that way it would be much easyer to create them and just only need to modify the info when we change place

2.- Additional organizers

It will be a good idea to be able to add additional organizers, specially for big events usually more than one person is helping with the meeting organization

3.- Bringing guests

when you are joining a meeting, it would be great to have the chance of saying if you are bringing someone else to the meeting/activity, that way the headcount will match reality.

+1 for cloning, it would solve the problem. might also be easier to implement (?)

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
