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. Duplicate threads will be deleted!

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

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Band Management

    A major advantage of the events calendar plugin is the ability to reuse items like venue or organizers as this reduces the time to add events. The acceptance of an events calendar by the users increases a lot.

    Therefore a function to add and reuse the data of a band would be great. Here are some ideas how this could look

    Fields needed for creating:

    - Name
    - Description
    - Photo (Upload)
    - Address
    - ZIP
    - City
    - Country
    - Website
    - Telephone
    - Name and instrument of the artists (as a list where as many as needed can…

    • Add a "Today" button in the calendar view so people can quickly jump back to Today.

      Just like most other calendaring software, add a button labelled "Today".
      Clicking it will bring the person immediately back to viewing today's date.

      For extra smoothness, Have the button only show up when today's date is not visible in the view.

      • Embed calendar on other web sites

          • Choose different Default View for Mobile

            make the default mobile view the list view, the calendar view on a mobile device is just little dots that can't be clicked, it's a bad user experience.

            • 24 Hour Time Format for Admins

              Large parts of the world use a 24 hour format, not am/pm. Please add this as an option for the admin Interface! Cant remember the last time a have seen a software where i cant switch to 24hours time Format.

              • Configure filter bar with custom categories/taxonomies

                I'm not able to tell from the tutorials or documentation if this is already possible with the Filter Bar or not.

                Instead of using the out-of-the-box filters, can we use our custom categories, and sub-categories? How about custom taxonomies? This way, users can drill down into events that are specific to my categories.

                Unfortunately, being held to only the out-of-the box filters I can't use this calendar or plugin.

                Would love to see the Filter Bar expanded to incorporate this.

                Thanks!

                  I know you used to have PDF tickets - this would be SO much better. Especially for multiple tickets as you can't easily forward tickets or print them

                  • Ical feed for Events Calendar

                    Create an easily accessible ical feed so that calendars created with Events Calendar Pro be able to be be imported by other calendars which are able to subscribe to ical feeds. For my particular needs, I have an Events Calendar populated with a lot of entries that need to be included in another calendar, which is also drawing on other ical calendars, so it is not simply a matter of replicating the calendar. The absence of this feature would force me to consider setting up a different calendar process, thus loosing the many fine features of Events Calendar, but giving…

                    • separate list of reccuring events

                      YES!! i agree that the Calendar gets cluttered with too many recurring events. My opinion is to have a completely separate simple list off to the side of the Month View of the Calendar that shows all recurring events. Check out this photo as a sample... http://nprnsb.org/recurring-sample.jpg

                      • Allow RSS feeds into the events calendar

                        It would be great if the events calendar accepted RSS feeds from other sources.

                                • Please remove "Previous Events" when there are no previous events. Thanks so much!

                                  I just started using The Events Calendar Pro on a client's website. She has no previous events just yet. But there is a link to view previous events that - when clicked on - says "There were no results found." Can that be removed?

                                      • Countdown widget to NEXT event

                                        The countdown widget has an option whereby rather than having to manually select an event, it automatically shows a countdown to the next upcoming event. This could just be a tick box on the current widget parameters.

                                          It would be really nice if the Website user would see how much tickets are left.
                                          The Idea:

                                          Thanks!
