Timetable and Event Schedule by MotoPress

Description

MotoPress Timetable and Event Schedule is an all-around organizer plugin developed to help you create and manage online schedules for a single or multiple events, customize the appearance of each event, add date, time, description and display all the needed items in a carefully-crafted timetable. It also comes with Upcoming events widget that will help you keep the sidebar clutter-free. The plugin can be used for timetabling different types of events like various lessons, gym classes, festivals, conferences, ceremonies, case-studies, formal parties, concerts, and much more. It’s handy in terms of backend management and maximum easy for your audience to use.

Key advantages

Responsive design. It’s optimized to be viewed perfectly on different devices. A good step forward, the plugin was supplied with the ability to manually adjust the way to show your timetable on mobile devices and desktops.

A well thought-out toolkit of shortcode settings. It eliminates the difficulties of timetabling as all preferable settings can be applied in minutes. Each setting is supplied with sufficient clarifications to ensure you coordinate and edit your events fast without additional help.

Handy event filtering. The visitors can filter the timetable to display the only events they are interested in.

Color controls. Highlight important activities by presenting them in different colors. Additionally, it simplifies and speeds up the search as the needed events marked with the same color can be noticed faster even without being filtered. Various color markers can become helpful in making the timetable more colorful or in customizing it to fit your website color scheme.

More precise visual time frames. Hourly time frames are generally large enough for showing the events, but using the MotoPress Timetable plugin you still can increase them by setting the timetable to show up to 15 minutes accurate time in the left ‘time’ column.

Flexibility. If any unexpected delays or total dates’ changes take place, your timetable can bend easily in one direction or another thanks to a couple of qucik time edits in the backend.

Met My Needs

Works great, the out-of-the-box functionality does what you’d expect it to. Support has been very responsive to any issues I’ve had.

Super handy plugin

This plugin is super-handy because it does not over-focuses on dates. So if you have an event reappearing in different weeks, and it has the same time slots, you can just reuse the event: Huge timesaver, as data entry is always most of the work!

The import-export feature is again a timesaver, as it allows you to easily move the data to another site. Import-export also preserves the ids, so no need to recreate your shortcodes 🙂 Graceful error handling included, works like a charm!

Basic and a bit buggy

For a free plugin, I guess it’s okay. Probably the best option if you don’t want to spend money on a timetable plugin. But it still takes some time to figure out how it works and to decide at what, in your use case, should be an event. In the case of a conference or workshop, intuitively, you’d think that the conference is the event and it is possible to set it up that way. But the better option is probably to define single sessions as your event (and if you have recurring sessions of the same type, they can be timeslots within that event).

Anyway, once you figured it out, it basically works. Except that I had some issues with layers on my website. Some of the events in the time table ended up above the sticky menu while others slid through underneath (as it should be).

The biggest limitation, however, is that this plugin doesn’t allow you to have parallel sessions and the header image on wordpress.org is missleading in that respect as it shows a timetable that clearly has such a parallel event. (I know, MotoPress will say that you can create parallel events by creating two columns for the same day and selecting the option that merges identical events across columns, but that is not the ideal workaround since in the back-end it will lool like you have two parallel sessions even if these in fact represent the same single session.

Excelent!

What can you say about something that works flawlessly good, as advertised? Good job, guys, just keep up with the good work! 🙂
Looking forward to a new and useful plugins, such as this one.

Great

Great plugin!!! Some thing have to be little tune, but then it will be the BEST. 🙂

Awesome plugin!

Very quick and easy to use plugin, exactly what I was looking for.
I especially like a clean look of a table, it suits my website with white background and looks cool. I would recommend it for everybody to timetable events. Thanks for quality product!
