With that lets dive right into the meat and potatoes
Today we are reviewing our usual allotment of six great plugins.



Bulk Edit Events in Spreadsheet


The Lowdown:
What started as a hopeful plugin with lots to offer showed that you need the premium to do anything useful with it. The free version is badly crippled but will allow you to know if you want the premium maybe. At $19 while on sale might be worth it. The free version only allows you to edit 3 fields and 2 of the three least likely to be used for an event calendar. The Coupon code, event status, event amount. a shame really.. To get a feel for it you will need to check out their demo site.

It does support The Events Calendar from Modern Tribe.

Rating 3 Dragons due to badly crippled state

Finally Free Support


The Lowdown:
This plugin is a great marketing ploy and I am sure it will drive loads of business to the creators. They are offering the following within the plugin
* Support Tickets
* Schedule a call
* Live Chat
* Peer Help
* Recommended Resources
* WordPress User Manual (Coming soon)

This is targeted at your average user with minimal knowledge and is offering some support and tips and when the questions get too big they will offer a proper quote on how to fix it all.

This would be a great Idea for many developers to place on their clients sites to encourage them to use the ticket system for needs.
