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. Reminder Emails for X Days Before Event

    Email Attendees of an event automatically with event details X days before event takes place. It would be great if this was a variable number of days.

    • Automatic Import from Facebook Groups

      Many community organizations use Facebook Groups, instead of Pages to manage their events - Different groups for different clubs in the area etc.
      It'd be great to have an automatic import from FB groups as well.

      • 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).

          This is great idea! I can definitely see this being a very useful feature for music venues.

          One question, how would you foresee these events displaying on the calendar? I’d imagine they wouldn’t display on the grid view? However, how would you envision these events being organized on the other views?

        • Re-think the SEO to cut down on duplicate content and/or options for canonical URLs

          Idea: Re-think the SEO to cut down on duplicate content and/or options for canonical URLs

          The current setup means that recurring events are classed as duplicate content by search engines. This is terrible for SEO. There needs to be a way to fix this issue, and I can think of 2:

          1. Set up the future recurring events so that they all use the same URL. The events on my site are not different year-to-year, so there is no reason the page/content/URL must be different. A single URL would suffice, but placed in the correct recurring dates in the calendar…

            • Facebook Calendar Import To Specific Calendar

              The facebook plugin seems to just import all the events but I want to import specific events to specific places. Maybe I have a guy who does bbqs that I want in the food section and a guy who does fantasy football parties under another calendar. We should be able to add specific facebook pages to specific calendars making it easier to find what you're interested in. I do not need to see Jims Yoga class if Im looking to go out and have a few drinks, they should not be on the same calendar.

              • 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

                • Display organizer and venue detailed information once selected

                  DISPLAY the venue and organizer information after making a selection from the drop down pick list. The current program only displays the venue name or organizer name. This can be problematic in situations when a venue or organizer is setup with multiple entries due to minor changes in the data.

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                        • Add the ability to place a deposit as part of a pre-event registration. I.E. "Secure a spot at this year's Event with a $50.00 deposit"

                          Add the ability to place a deposit as part of a pre-event registration.

                          I.E. "Secure a spot at this year's Event with a $50.00 deposit"

                          This would also require a way to pay the Balance of the Event cost at a later date.

                          • 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/

                            • 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.

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

                                In Filter Bar you can select which parent categories or subcategories/child categories underneath their parents. I expected that the child categories would not show any events when selected, unless their parent was selected as well. However, instead selecting a sub category will show all events in that sub category, and a parent will show all events in the parent. Could you change how this works?

                                  I apologize for the frustration you are having when using our plugins.

                                  For this particular issue, there is some great information in this thread https://theeventscalendar.com/support/forums/topic/display-only-children-categories-of-a-specific-parent-in-a-custom-filter/ that may help you get this working the way you would like.

                                  This is a good idea for inclusion within our plugin and I’ve ticketed this for review by our team.

                                • SMS Notification

                                  by sending SMS to attendees with security code and basic information after purchase.

                                  • 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.

                                      • Make the Month View Single day event order filterable

                                        When you have events a number of multiday events, they always appear at the top on subsequent days. When you have three or more multiday events on a given day, they hide all of the other events on that day from Month View. It would be great to be able to adjust the order of these so that those long running events appear on bottom, and the new events for that day appear on top.

                                        • Show date on reoccurring events

                                          Add the date to the booking email and ticket / order when someone buys a ticket for an event.

                                          Problem is that every event don't get a unique date identifier when created via the "reoccurring" event?

                                          So adding the date info to the purchase would be helpful to customer, organizers and the owner :-)
