Wondering if Events has the functionality I need compared to other Events plugins

I just loaded up the Events plugin for the first time. I’ve used several other event plugins in WP (“Event Espresso”, “Events”:wink: and I was hoping the WPMU Events plugin might be comparable (or better!)

Maybe I’m just missing where the options are, but I can’t figure out a couple of core ideas.

1. Let the user fill out certain information in order to register — or is registration simply limited to pushing Yes/No/Maybe?

2. Configurable widget to show upcoming events

3. Ability to control output of a single event. I see all of the shortcodes, but not sure how to apply them or what to apply them to — any hint to get started will do!

I’m generally a pretty high level WordPress developer, so no need to sugar coat!
