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. Commission system

    Idea how to improve your beautiful plugins:

    Let users (event creators) sell tickets for their events with commission (Admin can set up commissions rate -> XX%) for admin. With special backend access where they can manage sold tickets and people.

    For example:
    John is ADMIN.
    Adam is event creator.

    Adam create an event with 100 tickets for sale. He sell all of them, each for 2$. Total Adam's profit is 200$.

    John's (as site ADMIN) commission is e.g. 10% from price of each ticket.

    Result:
    John's commission for Adam's event is 20$.
    Adam's profit is 200$ - 20$ = 180$.

    • 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.

      • Organizer details visible only for himself

        What? Option to disable visibility and usability of "Organizer details" and "Event place" for other Organizers. So Organizer A can see only "Organizer details" and "Event place" entered by himself.

        Example:

        I think that if ADAM as event organizer create ORGANIZER DETAILS and EVENT PLACE.
        JOHN as another event organizer can see and use the same ORGANIZER DETAILS and EVENT PLACE as ADAM – I thought, that everyone can see and use only ORGRANIZER DETAILS AND EVENT PLACES entered by themselves not also ORGRANIZER DETAILS adn EVENT PLACES of others.

        So if Adam creates an organizer, you don’t want John…

        • Showing of future events by time, Event organizer subscribe, buttons JOIN or MAYBE

          Hello,

          FIRST:

          I am wondering if is possible to change showing of future events by end-time. Now it works like this:

          View as: list / month
          – The time is e.g. 13:00 pm
          – I still can see events from the same day but with ending-time of event at 11:00 am.

          Is it possible to change showing event by end-time ?

          SECOND:

          With PRO version, there is an Organizer View which allows us to see another event by this organizer. How about new functionality to “subscribe” to organizer and set up email notifications of newly posted events? E.g. with daily…

          • 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 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.

                      • Enable option for 'and' behaviour as an alternative to 'or' logic

                        I’ve noticed that Filter bar is working the opposite way that I thought it would.

                        Given the following scenario:

                        Event X – Assigned to only Category A
                        Event Y – Assigned to only Category B
                        Event Z – Assigned to both Category A and Category B

                        Filtering on category A brings back X & Z as expected.
                        Filtering on Category B brings back Y & Z as expected.
                        Filtering on Category A AND Category B brings back X, Y & Z – not expected!

                        I was hoping that the filter would look for events that had been categorised BOTH for…

                        • Venue Map - all Venues

                          Each venue has an address and can display a Google Map showing people where it is.
                          I need a single map which displays all venues. (Perhaps restrict the map to include only venues with events in a given date range.) For the map markers, allow a different marker per category, with venue details in a pop-up box, and marker grouping in case there are several venues close to each other.
                          Several GPL plugins exist to produce a decent multi-marker map. Perhaps integration with one of them?

                            • Shortcode or widget to show available events (not sold out)

                              I would love to display only events with available tickets on my front page. This would require hiding sold out events in a widget or shortcode.

                              We tend to have 20+ sold out events in any given month, so I prefer to show only what events are available. I am sure I am not the only one.

                                  Standard behaviour is that it uses the full size. Adjusting is possible via theming and page template, but in most themes this is easily adjustable, so why not here.
                                  AND: less work in case of a major update.

                                  • grouped by day agenda

                                    It would be great to have the option to group events by day in the list view: Essentially creating a list that would look something like this;

                                    Monday 1st:
                                    -------------------
                                    Event 1
                                    Event 2
                                    Event 3

                                    Tuesday 2nd
                                    --------------
                                    Event 4

                                    Thursday 4th
                                    ------------
                                    Event 5
                                    etc.

                                    Now we do have the List view, which is grouped by Month only, with no way to group events happening the same day under the same heading. (Apart from creating a template override I guess... )

                                    • Venue

                                      Have venue information up front on your calendar and out-of-box access to same - second thing viewers want after date, even before time of event.

                                      • Make the events on the monthly view downloadable as a list of all events in that month.

                                        We are a community art center and utilize both your online events calendar pro AND a hard copy printout for use at the front desk. We would like an easier way to downloading the events for a month. All events would be printed by selecting the one month view.

                                        • allow for customization of active filters to appear open/closed

                                          I would like to configure the filter bar so that only certain active
                                          filters appear in the open default state while other active filters need
                                          to be expanded to be seen.
