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

  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.

    • 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.

            • 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.

              • The ability to import events that are published via RSS from other sources. Something like WP-o-matic for calendar.

                The ability to import events that are published via RSS from other sources. Something like WP-o-matic but the imported feed would be included in the calendar events. The best would be if one could assign particular feed (or several feeds) to certain organizer/venue. Plus some possibility to include some regex rewrite rules for better customization.
                This would allow to import event feeds form partner websites.
                A very nice addition would be a full customization of RSS import (that I can assign certain tags to be included in particular fields - like a rewrite rule). This would allow for nearly full…

                • 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…

                    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!

                  • Have an option to show early bird pricing and date

                    Most of my clients host events that give early bird discounts if people sign up by a specific date. It would be great if that info could be entered into the event price section so it would stand out when looking at the events in a list. When the info is in the text of the event, it often is overlooked.

                      Hey there, great idea! You can certainly create an “Early Bird” ticket that starts and ends sale before other tickets, but it would be an interesting idea to be able to identify an early bird price/promotion on the front end.

                      How would you imagine this being displayed on the front end? Would it be a little flag next to the price that reads “Early Bird”? Should that text be customizable? Should the style be the same for all themes? It would be great to get a little more info on this might work. :)

                    • 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…

                      • 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

                          great idea to provide an alternative service for maps! I’m surprised we haven’t seen more requests for that, so let’s see how many votes come in.

                          For the time being, there is the option to not display the map or the map link in the event editor, which will display the venue’s address and nothing else on the single event page and archive views.

                        • 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.

                            Currently, there doesn't seem to be any functionality for modifying date format on start/end dates for a new event in the Admin. The built-in option, YYYY-MM-DD, is not Euro-friendly.

                            • 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…

                                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.

                                  • Display the payment method in participant view

                                    i´m wondering if there is a way to add a collumn displaying the payment method of the participants.

                                    events -> participants of a particular event -> i need to see how the pariticipants payed which are shown in this view.

                                    i really need that information in the particiapnts view. that would save me a lot of time assigning the payment methods to the participants of each events.

                                    looking forward to hear from ya

                                    • Allow paper/non-virtual tickets

                                      We mail out physical tickets for our events (there are a few reasons for that, besides we don't have a scanning / check-in option available at the moment). There is a small delivery charge that we add to the purchased order unless the ticket is picked up from the office. The shipping option is not available if the ticket is virtual. I like the virtual option too for when tickets are bought closer to the event and we don't have time to mail them out. Hope this helps. Thanks!

                                      • Allow to pick and assign a Category to all events that appear as Posts in main blog loop

                                        In General settings, by the "Show events with the site's other posts. When this box is checked, events will also continue to appear on the default events page".
                                        Allow to pick and assign a Wordpress Category to all the events that appear as Posts on the front page of the blog (main blog loop) as now they have no assignment.
                                        It would be a really helpful and clarifying addition if one could display certain "post category" from WP to all events in the main blog loop i.e. "Meetings & Events" or any other custom category.

                                        It would be fantastic if…

                                        • Add the ability to import CSV files via a web address, so partner sites can communicate with each other and pull events from them

                                          it would be fantastic if I could point to a web address of CSV file and import that automatically with certain time intervals.
                                          that would be a really nice upgrade of CSV importer
