Summary

Linchpin Events 2.0 (formerly EasyEvents RSVP) takes event management within Confluence to a whole new level. You can now create, explore, and manage events with the all-new central event hub, the live preview presents event organizers with an accurate representation of how the event will look like once it has been published, and the heavily improved workflow for embedding and managing events within Confluence pages makes it even easier and more fun to use. 




Get a clear overview of events

Create, explore and manage all events within the central event hub and even check them on the go - with Linchpin Mobile.

Create single event pages

Access all of the information about your event from anywhere in Confluence with the new single event view.

See a live preview of events

While you create or edit an event, you can now see a live preview of your input or changes to check how your event will look like after creating and editing it.


What's new in Linchpin Events 2.0?

  • Central event hub to create, explore, and manage all events.
  • Live preview of how the event macro will appear when you create and edit events.
  • Events are now independent of Confluence pages giving you more freedom and options to create, embed and link events.
  • When embedding an event into a Confluence page you no longer embed the actual event but only a reference. This means you can integrate the same event into multiple pages without any trouble.
  • The new event popup shows all event-related information, wherever you are in Confluence and without having to leave your current workspace.

Bugfixes and improvements

  • When copying a Confluence page you now only copy an event reference - not the whole event. This prevents any errors that may occur while copying and also when you work with event duplicates.



Known issues / Soon-to-come features

Since for Linchpin Events 2.0 we almost completely rebuilt EasyEvents RSVP from scratch there are some little flaws / some features still missing that will be fixed / added in a soon-to-come release. These include the following:

  • When there's no valid license found for Linchpin Events it might not be possible to access any event-related content.
  • Pressing the 'Escape' key while creating a new event from within an event macro embedded in a Confluence page closes the macro browser.
  • Accessing event details from the event calendar macro opens up a new browser window.
  • Some improvements to-come when entering event date and time.



Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for Linchpin Events 2.0


Q: Why do I have to select a space when creating a new event?

A: An event's space connection manages permissions regarding editing event information, deleting the event and managing participants.

Q: Will my old events be migrated to be compatible with the new Linchpin Events 2.0 automatically or do I need to take action?

A: All your existing EasyEvents will be migrated automatically so you don't have to worry about them (Lächeln)

Q: Will migrated events keep view and edit permissions of the pages they're embedded into or are there any changes with the new Linchpin Events?

A: Since events are no longer bound to a Confluence page with the new Linchpin Events there is also a change in permissions! All events apply the permission scheme of the connected space instead of the Confluence page.

Event permissions are granted as follows:

Event permissionRequired space permission
Display eventRead permission for space
Sign in yourselfRead permission for space
Export event to calendarRead permission for space
Export event participant listWrite permission for space

Edit / Delete eventWrite permission for space
