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 ...

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. Attendees / participants information

    I believe it is important for the visitors of an event page to inform organizer if they will be attending by clicking on a button saying I will attend. It will be very useful if an attendee could fill out a form with his or her basic information. Of it could be captcha protected or through registration to prevent bogus entries.

    • 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.

      Tomas

        • enable variable pricing within EDD tickets

          Within Easy Digital Downloads itself, it is easy to set up multiple pricing options for purchasing a 'download.' This functionality should be brought over to EDD tickets. For example, at a show at our theater: Adults $15, Student / Senior $12, Children $10. Of course it _is_ already possible to do this... sort of... by creating three separate ticket types for each event. But it gets clunky and laborious when there is a recurring event AND multiple ticket prices. For a three night production with three ticket prices, at present you need to create nine different tickets.

          • Hide all day events on Calendar

            I suggest to add new options for Event calendar on Month view events:

            Month view events options:

            – Show all events on calendar
            – Don’t show same events first on calendar
            – Show events random on calendar

            Because all day events shows on Monthly calendar first. Users watch calendar "it's all day same events". Just like this: http://postimg.org/image/54pfaqcez/

            • Create a TBA/TBD or No Date Event

              It would be great to be able to create an event with no date or have the date/time display as TBA (To Be Announced) or TBD (To Be Determined).

              • Automatically sync Eventbrite with Events Calendar

                Automatically sync new Eventbrite events with Events Calendar instead of having to manually enter event IDs for each event you want to add.

                • Display Google map while adding EVENT LOCATION DETAILS to allow to check that the location on the map is correct before submitting the event

                  Display a Google map aside of the EVENT LOCATION DETAILS on the add new/edit Event page, so one can check that the location address has no errors or misinterpretations by Google map and one can check the map if it is correct before submitting the event.

                    • Provide an option so that "see all" for recurring events ignores events in the past

                      When looking at events in a given category, they are displayed as list of events in the future, with, if applicable, a link to see the previous events.

                      But for recurring events, the "see all" link behaves differently. It shows a list of all the events, including those that may have occurred some time in the past. I'd like to see it default to future dates in the sequence with an option to see earlier events -- or at least have an option to "hide" members of the sequence that are in the pat.

                      • Option for a redirect to different URL after new event submission and edited events

                        I understand that there is an add-on plugin to accomplish this but it should be native to the Community Events plugin.

                        • Custom Markers based on category

                          It would be very useful to have a way to choose custom marker in order to show many categories at the same time on the map. Having just one type of marker on the map can be confusing if there are different kind of events taking place.

                          It would be nice to have a standard marker and a way to select a custom marker (maybe via upload too) for specific categories.

                          • Become compatible with WooSlider

                            Event Calendar pages cannot be targeted using WooSlider, It'd be great if we could customise sidebars for EC pages using WS.

                                  What is a reasoning behind suppressing google snappy suggestions as one types? (as you use theirs api?)

                                  The search suggestions would solve a lot of problems and requests reported here about misinterpretation of the city. It would also increase the user awareness on how the search should be phrased. On top of it it would feel more interactive and 21 century;) and…

                                  • Have child categories only show when the parent is picked.

                                    When I purchased the Pro Calendar and the Filter Bar, I believed that a sub-category would only show when the parent was chosen. I have just found out that is not true. Since my calendar has many child/sub categories this looks a mess and is not end user friendly.

                                    I next thought to move my sub-categories to tags, but find I can't import tags via Excel from what I can see (I'm still waiting for someone to verify that understanding). I need to import from Excel because it will be much faster. If I have to go this route that…

                                    • Map and Filter as a Widget

                                      An important feature is the ability to have a widget or shortcode to be inserted inside of the homepage or in another pages with the ability to view a map with points of events such as the map-view; same feature with the search filter.
                                      We had purchased your plugin for that, but it doesn't have that feature.
                                      Thank you.

                                      • Search Bar on Home Page

                                        Add a Search Bar directly on the home page, like a widget or shortcode, that will then take the user to the calendar page, and filter it based on their search.

                                          Hello,

                                          Having the option of making the events disappearing from the results as soon as they have started (eg: a week long event starting on Monday disappears from the results on Monday) would be a very handy feature.

                                          I currently need to take my events down manually which is not ideal and time consuming... And I'm sure I'm not the only one having this issue!

                                          Thank you!
                                          Charlotte
