We have a user with an open group and an event that has no limits or other advanced settings, but users cannot edit the event. The goal is for people to be able to edit the event details and fill in their speaker information. Are there restrictions on who can edit an event even in an open group? And if so, can that be changed?
Thanks for raising this question around edit rights with events. In order to modify an event, a user must be designated as an organizer. Any other user cannot edit the event. To resolve this, have the creator of the event add additional organizers as needed. Unfortunately, this behavior cannot be changed, as this is the intended behavior for the event content type.
Feel free to test this out and let me know if you run into any issues.
