Reviews

Great to see this under active development again

Thanks for taking over the running of this plugin, most of the new changes look good. I'd prefer it if my site email settings were used though (we use an api to link to a mailing host) and now need to have duplicated settings. Also I'll need to remember to disable your plugin when I want to disable site emails which isn't ideal compared to just having the one setting to change.

Brilliant tool

This plugin works well. I particularly like the flexible to email all bookings or just confirmed bookings or pending etc. It also has a raft of useful email settings - especially like BCC. Thanks Philippe!

Dude, thank you so much!

I just spent the past week deciding on and configuring the $hit out of Events Manager only to discover it didn't have the crucial feature to allow event hosts to mass email all members attending events to notify them of cancellations, changes, etc. This should absolutely be a standard core feature of Events Manager PRO. I've seen threads from years ago and the EM team still hasn't implemented it. They said when I contacted them that it is on their list but no ETA. Hopefully they do so soon as I really believe this is a critical feature but for the interim I found your little gem of a plugin. In fact, the EM team even recommended I try it out. I'm surprised more people haven't downloaded and use this. So far it seems to work great, albeit I haven't tested with more than a few attendees. Seriously though, thanks for creating this, exactly what I needed!
