Events Manager 5.9.4 & Pro

Posted on June 10, 2018

Today’s release is a maintenance release following up last month’s release, which contained various privacy-related features for the European GDPR laws that came into force.

Both updates fix a few issues that arose from consent boxes and different contexts where events, locations and bookings are submitted/edited. We’ve also ensured that anonymously submitted events that have attached locations will now store that information on both objects, allowing them to act independently from each other for exporting/erasing personal data.
