Feature Spotlight

New "Any person can create an event type" & "Any event type organizer can schedule events of that type" options [New Feature] [Event Types] [Events]: Admins can empower any user to create an event type. To enable the option, go to Settings > Event Settings. The new Event Type option will appear to all users through the Catalog if the option is enabled. In addition, admins can also allow these users to schedule events of that type.

Mentor engaging a Mentee [Early Access] [Mentorship]: Admins can enable Mentorship Preferences to all users. With this feature, users can share their preferences as mentors, indicating if they are open to mentoring peers or actively looking for mentees. Following the same line, they will also be able to set their preferences as mentees.

To enable the capability, go to Settings > Programs & Mentoring:

The selected preference is displayed on the Mentor/Mentee's profile page:

In addition, Mentors can search for Mentees and engage with them, requesting to mentor.

After receiving a request, the mentee should review and accept or dismiss. The requests list is available on the new "My Mentorship Requests'' page. To accept the request, they must book or request a session with the mentor.
