Main Events calendar should include non-public events that user has access to
I don't see any events when I click on this tab. Is it that the events calendar is not being used or is it a bug? Also, I am a member of a lot of groups, but when I click on "My Events" the last event I see was in April. I do see Boone's upcoming vacation in July using "Upcoming", but I don't see it in the calendar view.

I've clicked back a few months and I do see events from previous months showing up there, so my guess is that non one has submitted any events for June yet. But Boone can confirm. Thanks for noticing this -- I'm so grateful for your eyes on the site!!

Like Matt, I see a number of items for June 2019.
Part of the issue may be that few people have created public events; Matt and I see them when logged in as super admins. It does appear that the "fullcalendar" view on the Events tab (as opposed to the calendar view within specific groups) doesn't include non-public events. Ray, do you recall whether we originally built this feature? I don't see obvious in the codebase that would cause items from private groups (of which the user is a member) to be included in calendar queries. If this is the limiting factor, we may have to build this as a feature request for an upcoming release.

I don't recall the details I'm afraid. My instincts tell me we intended for the main Events page to be for public consumption only, so only public events are shown by default. Of course, site admins are excluded and can view everything. I could be wrong though.

- Tracker changed from Bug to Feature
- Subject changed from Events Tab on Homepage to Main Events calendar should include non-public events that user has access to
- Assignee set to Boone Gorges
- Target version set to Future release
Thanks, Ray. This is close to my recollection as well.
Scott, in the short term, we'll call this expected behavior: the main Events tab contains only public events. In the future, we'll look at including non-public events that the logged-in user has access to.
