How to create an event that is on two different days

How can I create an event that is on two different days but paid for as one event Р for example from 6 to 9 pm on two different Saturdays?

      there is no way currently but there is a little thing I have done in the past which takes a tiny amount of work

      • ok create and event put in whatever details you need to make the event work –Keep this event edit screen open)
      • duplicate that event in a new tab then use the RSVP feature-set it up as you would normally to RSVP to the event
      • view the single event of the RSVP enabled event and copy the URL
      • paste the URL into the “user interaction for event click in the 1st event- choose the middle option (mouse over and it says external link) there is a field to paste the URL into

      so now you will have a calendar and on the 1st saturday when they click the event top it takes them to the 2nd saturday single event page where they can RSVP- if they click the 2nd saturday it either opens up the single event page or pop up or whatever you set it for that event

      yeah I know it is not the best but it works

      you can also (if you don’t want to have the event top link to the other event) create a button Myeventon>>>>settings>>>custom meta data>>>activate the first one and make it a button called: RSVP to this event

      then in Myeventon>>>>settings>>>event card data you can activate and position this wherever you want on the event card- and you basically link to the RSVP event (if you have knowledge of anchor links you could position the rsvp section right under the main description and put in anchore links right at the bottom of the event description so when you click the first button it takes you directly to the RSVP section- OK thats getting complicated

      with both options you have to be clear on both events that by rsvping to the 2nd event you are also rsvping to the first

      Thank you for this great suggestion, at the moment it is not supported and we are going to move this ticket into feature request so other users can vote for your excellent feature idea and get this move into development!

      Notes for Ashan:
      basically you have a multi day event that is not back to back
      or you have the ability to connect 2 events togeather to share ticket sales or rsvp sales
      so you would have a section in the rsvp section or the ticket section where the event organioser adds an event ID to share the rsvp feature on different days

      Thank you! This would be a great feature, since there are a lot of workshops that are MWF, or every weekend for x number of weeks. It would be nice to be able to set up a ticket to have people pay once instead of multiple payments.

      yes there have been a few people having an event that spans multiple days that are not back to back.

      Right now the ticket sales and RSVP will take into account the repeat instance and use that to separate sales for each repeat instance. What you are looking for is one event repeat on different times but the sales for all those events be counted in one place. instead of segregating by repeat instance.

      Like Dave said we will push this into feature request. You are also more than welcome to send us a customization request to get this modified.
