Better UI for reviewing pending community events.
I just installed Community Events and am looking for a way to review pending events before publishing them. Being able to review pending events before publishing was one of the highlighted features that motivated me to purchase Community Events.
When I view the community events list (using /events/community/list/), it does not show all the event information, in particular it does not show the description field (which is required), the cost field or the website field. This means that there is no effective way to proof the entries before publishing.
To remedy this, users need to be able to see all the data in the community list view. This includes description, cost, event image, and event website URL. The “Display” button selection list should show all these fields and allow users to select them for display.
I would also like to see a link that would display a “preview calendar”, i.e., a calendar populated by pending events rather than published events. Both the month and list views would be needed for effective reviewing. A nice touch would be to add an “edit” button to the “Find out more…” view when in this mode, which would take the user to the edit screen for the selected event.

In the dashboard, pending events can be scattered down the list, and be several paginated pages down. Could you make a filter in the events dashboard that sorts pending events to the top? Along with this, could you make more filters to sort the events like this that others are suggesting as well?
