Need to Organize Group Activities and Events?

The BuddyPress Group Calender plugin offers the ability for groups to coordinate and organize events.

There are unlimited uses for this functionality, including practices,  festivals, performance schedules, business promotions, networking, learning management systems, markets, corporate events, etc.

While creating new events, the user can see upcoming events that are scheduled for that specific group, as well as scroll ahead by month or year.

Past events can be left on the calendar or users can delete them.

This helps keep your group on track without double-booking.
