Ability to RSVP to the same recurring event on one web page .
I run a Dragon Boat club and we have weekly practices that occur on the same day and time. It would be nice to have the option to RSVP for all the events for the month at once.
Several Meetup groups post recurring events that I have no interest in attending. Unfortunately, there is no way to opt out of the series. Instead, I must spend my time RSVPing No to every single recurrence.
Allow an option to completely turn off the RSVP function for recurring events. We have a "Bike Night" every 4th Thursday of the month and don't need members to RSVP. I'd like to announce the event and have it on the calendar but not make it look like you have to RSVP. It's an open event and they just come if they can.
Many of the members of my group go to the same events every week. They should be able to set an RSVP to YES for every week and then just change it to NO individually if they can't make a certain week. Same thing with a NO rsvp. If they know that they will never be able to attend a certain meetup but they want the planners to know that they can't -- why not set up a recurring NO RSVP too?
Please allow us to opt-out permanently from recurring events we're never interested in attending, rather than forcing us to RSVP each time.
Our Running group has 3 different series of Meetups on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Many of the members know they won't ever make a run on one or all of these nights. If a Meetup is posted as a series shouldn't you have the option to RSVP No to the series?
I know that I can't participate in events on certain days - if there is a recurring event on that day - let me post a recurring "NO" rsvp instead of having to reply to each one individually.
For non-organizers. I would like to be able to turn off email notifications coming to me for recurring events that I have no interest in attending (due to day/time issues, location on other side of town, disinterest in topic, etc). I can always see these events on the calendar should I have a periodic change of heart, but would be saved the consistent emails to join in events I have no desire to attend
I need something like this for my meetup site - lots of people create recurring events that end up only being relevant to the sub-set of the meetup that wish to attend regularly.
This means I either need to set up Gmail filters for the events as new ones are added, or unsubscribe from ALL new meetup events, potentially missing out on new ones I am interested in. The ability to say "ignore this recurring event" would be a simple, effective way to reduce the new meetup invite spam I am facing now (and it IS starting to feel like spam...)
Also need this for my Yoga in the Park Meetups - thank you

Please YES !! One of my groups has a weekly karaoke night, that I have no intention of EVER going to.. I'd like to RSVP for all of them with 1 click (this should be an option for all recurring events)
PLEASE add this feature! My rugby team uses MeetUp to keep track of who is coming to practice each week. Practice is every Tuesday and Thursday, without fail. As you can imagine, it's super annoying to ask everyone to individually click "yes" to every practice in our 3-month season -- that's a lot of clicks, and our lazy members simply don't do it.
So we've adopted a system of having the organizer RSVP individually for all of the regular team members. This is a very time intensive task that could easily be saved by checking a simple button marked "RSVP for all future recurrences of this event." Please add this capability!!
Oh pleas,e oh please do this one. I'm a member of so many groups that I have an email account just for meet up notifications. There are certain events that I cannot attend that are reoccurring and not only do I have to say NO to each one individually but I also get the emails that go along with them. There needs to be an elaborated setting for getting emails from the groups. Now you can only say how you want to be contacted for the whole of the group instead of indicating when you do and don't want to get an email. For example if I RSVP'd No to an event I don't need an email about the event and showing that I've said No. You can put the to email reminder or not next to where you check yes or no. Simple
I totally agree with Laura of course with Organizers control.
I run a group which also meets weekly, and we post recurring meetings sometimes months in advance. It would be helpful in encouraging on line RSVP's for the members to have the option to RSVP to all events currently posted on the calendar with one keystroke. It is quite laborious and tedious to pull up each weekly event individually to RSVP one at a time.
Only as long as the organizer has control over this. We have regular game nights and they are sooo popular and they fill up so fast but there are limited spots available and we don't want someone to automatically RSVP just because they can. We want everyone to have a chance to RSVP. Not only that but some people that initially do are chronic no-shows and we just cannot have that happening and would never want to actually "boot" someone off. So even though I think this is a bad idea in general I guess it can work for some groups so maybe it has merit but should be something that only the organizer can set.

I totally agree - We need to have this option available to us!

I agree that there would be an advantage to this but I also think there would have to be available a place to cancel by the week. I doubt if anyone can plan their schedule for the entire month.
I agree that this would be a useful tool
I'd truly like this. There's an article on Hacker News whose title is "don't make your users do sh-t work," the theme of which is basically that computers can do a lot of predictive sorting already, but they're rarely called upon to do so. Meetup needs to implement this to save its users a lot of work.
[sorry about the earlier multiple posts - IE goofed]
I belong to a Mommy group, and I would like to do a blanket "NO" to recurring events that are outside our age group.
I'd prefer to frame this as "RSVP'ing to all the recurring events in the series from the current date (not change RSVP to past dates)" because some people may want to RSVP yes to a series, and some people may want to RSVP no to a series. Its similar to the google calender concept where you can mark your RSVP for individual events in a series, or the entire series with one event instance.

Yes, great idea!
Great idea Michelle! Maybe should have a time limit (or a way for Event Organizer to override), e.g., if people move out of the area but are ongoing "Yes"s for months/years.
Love the "No" idea to not flood my inbox (e.g., Joe does not do morning runs |-). However, if posted, the No idea might make great MeetUps seem less popular than they are -- e.g., with >1200 members, 30 could say Yes and ~1000 say No on an ongoing basis.
How about not including No's on the event (all events will be 99% No -- look at the cup as _% full), but (as another idea?) DEFINITELY INCLUDING 'MAYBE'S?? Why not Maybe's -- sometimes, I am a Maybe, the Event Organizer might like to know that, and the MeetUp looks better when more show their interest.
