Venue Check

Description

Venue Check will check for venue conflicts when adding an event. You can also include setup and cleanup time before and after the event. The setup and cleanup time will not display on the events calendar but will be included into the venue conflict checking.

Requires The Events Calendar (4.4.5 or greater) by Modern Tribe.

This plugin will work with “The Events Calendar” or “The Events Calendar PRO” but it currently does not support the recurring events feature available in the PRO version. This will be available in a future version of Venue Check.

I hope you find this plugin useful. If you find any bugs or have any feedback of any kind, please contact me.
