    Very simple question: is it possibile to use a map saved in Google Maps instead of a place as a event location?
    Thanks

    Hiya!

    That isn't possible I'm afraid, no - but you can set the pin anywhere you want on the map when creating a location.

    Ok but If i became a PRO user, can I open a feature-request?
    We are working on a website which needs that feature.

    Thanks for you very fast reply

    Hi Angelo,

    You could, but I'm not sure how quickly such a feature would be added. I'll ask Marcus to take a look at this thread later. He can give you a better answer than me about that.

    I don't think this'd be something we'd implement soon, however you can probably acheive this in some ways already.

    1) add the iframe code given to you by Google directly into your event description

    2) tricker, use the #_ATT placeholder in your event formats. You could paste the google shared code into the event attribute

    3) even more complex, use php and override our map placeholder:
