Feature Ideas

Howdy. In our adventures to create tools that help you kick ass, we could use some advice. What are you looking for that would make you more successful? What features do you want to see? What should we build next?

Our tools help the right people, get to the right place at the right time. How can we improve our products and make them super awesome for you and your users?

Before posting your idea, please look to see if someone else has suggested it, or something very similar. That will help us better understand what features are the most widely asked for, and address those requests most efficiently.

Please not, this is NOT a place to get support or ask questions about how the plugin works. If you need help, please visit our forums. If you use our free core plugin, you can post in our forum on WordPress.org

I suggest you ...

  1. Visibility of past events for organizers

    Hello,

    I would kindly ask you for implementing visibility of past events in "My events" tab.

    Now there are only future events.

    Thank you.

      • Change default ticket quantity to '1' instead of '0' - to avoid user confusion

        This is just so basic it's ridiculous. Please set the default ticket quantity to 1. If someone is buying a ticket, they're never buying or attempting to buy "0" tickets.

        If someone is ready to click "add to cart", why make them select "1" from 0 in a spinner control? Especially if they're doing this on a mobile phone.

        We lose a lot of non-technical customers because they look past the "0 quantity", hit "ADD TO CART" and get "Your Cart is Empty" and get confused and don't sign up for an event.

        And, this isn't a caching issue, I…

          4 comments  ·  Tickets  ·  Admin →

          The main reason we chose 0 is because many users have multiple ticket types available for an event. If a user clicks add to cart, then they will get 1 of each, and that is certainly not good either. If however you only have 1 ticket type for each event, a theme override for WooTickets can make the amount default to 1 instead of 0. Check out our tutorial at https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/handling-ticket-quantities/

          Cheers!

        • Weekly digest email of events happening in the next week

          It would be great if guests could register for weekly (or daily, monthly, etc) emails of upcoming events. Then, an admin could configure the site to send emails on (for example) Sunday evenings that contain details for all events coming up in the next (for example) week.

          As a bonus feature, users may want to customize their weekly digest emails to only contain events in certain categories (or at certain venues, etc).

          The email template would contain the featured image, event name, event date, event time, and description for each event in that email period. There might also be a…

              Hey there and thanks for sharing your idea!

              How do you envision this working? Would the Facebook URL be imported with the event or is it a field that is added to the event editor in WordPress?

              There currently is an Event Website URL in the event editor that could technically be used here for this purpose. Are you currently using that in some way?

              Thanks!

            • Default Event Times

              Seems like a no-brainer. Most of my events are at the same time every evening.

              You all seem to be adding a lot of new functionality under 'Default Content' (thank you, btw). Seems like a logical fit.

              • Option to change Google Maps to other Maps provider

                I have been using your plugin for a while now, and since my business is in China, there's is no or limited access to a lot of google services, including maps. Now I disabled all reference to google services and naturally, the maps in event calendar are not showing anymore. It would be nice to have option to:
                a) switch to alternative maps provider (like bing or openstreetmap)
                b) just display address as is, without a map.

                thanks

                    • More field type options for additional fields, especially image uploads

                      It would be immensely helpful if one could have an 'image upload' field as one of the field options under 'additional fields'. Whilst also allowing a community submission to have the ability to include images too. Surely this would be fairly straight-forward to implement?

                      Currently to add an image to an event (and give community users the ability to do so) I've had to resort to using an third-party plugin (ACF) which works fine for admins ...but the solution is hardly elegant for community users as I need to direct them to a separate page to upload images once they've…

                      • Composer Repo/Link for Pro Plugins

                        This doesnt neccesarily have to be a repo, it could just be a link to a versioned zip file.

                        Im sure its a major strurcture change, but, for instance, I can include ACF in my composer.json via the a link to a versioned zip file with my account key:

                        http://connect.advancedcustomfields.com/index.php?p=pro&a=download&k=ACCOUNT_KEY&t=VERSION_NUMBER

                        This is like, the lowest feature on the totem pole, but if you ever end up refactoring how pro files are distributed, it would be great if you would consider it.

                        • custom directory to be made from an Organizer or Venue list

                          Since there is now a plugin available to list organizers or list venues via shortcode, I would like to see an extension (I'd pay for this!) to ECP that allows general to full customization of a directory (using either the organizer or venue information) so that I can add a Custom Directory (organizer or venue) to the events section of my website. No directory plugins for WP currently meet the needs of a person wishing to do this. Hope to see it!

                                The automatic import of Events is great BUT there are Facebookpages that do many different events, so only about 10% are interesting to my Website. This is why i cant use the automatic import for ALL the other pages too!

                                • Switch the "Show As" behavior to show the *other* option

                                  Right now, the "View As" option in the calendar view is confusing because it is a verb phrase which implies that selecting the icon is going to do something. It is also not clear that you should, for example, select the month view icon to ultimately select the list view (and vice versa).

                                  When in Calendar view, the icon in the top right should be "View As List" and when in List view, the option should be "View As Month" so that selecting the option switches to the other view.

                                  Alternatively, it would be good if this behavior were configurable…

                                    • Allow a URL to show only UPCOMING dates in a list for a recurring event

                                      Right now I can use a URL to show a list of events of one recurring event like so:

                                      http://www.heartwoodcenter.com/event/foundations-of-mindfulness/all

                                      What would be great if I could have a URL with /upcoming at the end (instead of /all) to limit the list to ONLY show upcoming events, and not display the past events. The URL would look like this:

                                      http://www.heartwoodcenter.com/event/foundations-of-mindfulness/upcoming

                                      • Option to Auto-Approve Events from Specific Users

                                        I have my community calendar set to moderate all incoming events. I would like to have the option to auto-approve events by specific users that I trust.

                                        • Option on recurring events which allows the event to maintain it's own details within the recurring series

                                          Would be nice to have a checkbox or other option on recurring events which allows for that instance of a recurring event to maintain it's own details without removing that event from the recurring series.
