You can now RSVP straight from the event invitation emails! This has been one of the most-requested features for a while, and we’re excited that it’s finally arrived.
From now on, each event invitation email will include one link to view the event and several other links to RSVP to the event. And coolest of all: none of those links require you to login! Even users without a username and password can RSVP to events straight from the email.
The links use a special token that only gives access to viewing the event and RSVP’ing to the event. The token doesn’t give access to other actions like editing the event or viewing user information. To do anything besides view the event and RSVP you’ll need to log in.
When you click on one of the RSVP links we record your RSVP choice and show you the event details. This way you can confirm that the RSVP was saved. Also, if you need to RSVP for several other people you can do it all on one page.
Also, we updated the RSVP box. You can now select the RSVP option right on the event details page. It’s a lot easier to RSVP for multiple people this way!
However, most of these shiny new features don’t apply to events with fees. For events with fees, you can still view the event details without logging in, but in order to RSVP and pay the fee you’ll need to log in. A future update may make it possible to pay event fees without logging in. We’d love to hear feedback on that possibility.
