    Hey amazing folks! We are using BuddyPress and bbpress for a website for our ecovillage in Belize. We want a function that is essentially a calendar that lets our owners show when they will be at the village:

    family A will be there Jan 28-Feb 15
    family B will be there Feb 1-28

    etc. and then you could look at the calendar and see who will be there when you want to travel, etc.

    Any ideas of the best way to implement this? It’s not really an event thing where you’d have others register, unless the entire year was a multi-day event.

    it’s not really individual calendars, because you want to see the calendar for the whole community.

    not sure where to look! Would love your ideas!

    Just an idea: if you have no success finding a shared BuddyPress calendar, try searching for shared WordPress calendar. In BuddyPress, members are actually WordPress users so in theory things should work. You’ll need to test though, as always.

    Thanks Henry! That was a good idea, and I actually found a group calendar on WPMUDev for BuddyPress groups. I forgot to add one important feature, however. We need multi-day events! Now that I look at it laid out like below, I am wondering if a project manager plugin that has a timeline might be a better solution????

    Family 2: 3/1-10
    Family 3: 3/5-10

    That’d work too. Thinking you’d need to reword it but that can be done through localisation. Ref: https://codex.buddypress.org/getting-started/customizing/customizing-labels-messages-and-urls/
