Events Manager for LearnDash
Turn your live events into lessons!
Events Manager for LearnDash makes use of the free Events Manager plugin and directly connects the events to LearnDash lessons.
The Events Manager plugin does not require an external service to create and manage events. So you would only require LearnDash, Events Manager, and this Events Manager for LearnDash plugin to be fully operational.
This plugin adds front-end event creation, editing, and duplication to a shortcode you can use in any web page.
There are two types of events you can create in the front-end: General Events that are not reliant on LearnDash, and LearnDash Course Events that, when created, will place an event information panel in any lesson you allow the Event Author to use. Multiple Event panels can be shown in a lesson so the student can choose different days, times, locations, authors, or pick from online or location-based events in order to complete their lessons.
The LearnDash course events control lesson completion using a Class Roster form. When the Event Author checks the box of a student, that action will control the Mark Complete button in that lesson for that student.
This plugin also supports all Events Manager Pro features such as WooCommerce integration if you choose to sell event reservations / tickets. This is optional and is not required to add events to your lessons.

Frequently Asked Questions
How can I customize the lists and pages for events?
Typically, with the Events Manager plugin, you would do these changes in the Events > Settings page > Formatting tab.

If you’re interested in completely different layouts and and customizations, reach out to us via your My Account > Support form and we’ll be happy to assist with this.
Does this require I use groups?

You can optionally use groups if you wish, but this has no direct bearing on how this plugin operates.
Does this work with other groups or instructor plugins?
This plugin works with any group plugin but does not use groups functionalities.
