Create an Admin option to allow a member who Schedules a New Meetup to automatically be set as the Event Host
We run our meetup a little differently. We encourage all of our members to post events/trips (schedule a new meetup). The current Meetup gets most of the way there - and allows us to set that any member can schedule a new meetup, but falls a little short as an organizer has to go and make them an event host for their own event - so they can have access to the RSVP setting for their own event.
The quick mod would be an Admin setting under the Group Settings -> Basics screen, to select whether to automatically set the person who schedules a new meetup to be set as the Event Host for that meetup; or, at least give them access to the RSVP settings.
Ideally, there would also be a setting to whether the Event Host should have access to the "Charging for this Meetup" section (which is the only very sensitive section, IMHO.)
I would agree - though with only limited permissions. They should be able to set a limit to the number of attendees for example, but not necessarily email the entire meetup group.
we have the same issue, we also encourage members to bring up events.
Where is the problem for those organisers who need more control? It would just be an option you can decide on in Group Settings?
Nobody would lose any control, but we would gain the flexibility to run our meetups as we wish.
Don't like this idea at all. As the organizer I need to control what's going on. Too many make mistakes, or just don't understand how the web site works.
