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

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. 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…

      • Ability to validate the ticket via scan when the client arrives instead of having to use a list

        include a bar code in the ticket, so that it can be scanned and validated electronically instead of using a list. Also give the buyer the option to print or just store ticket in their cellphones

        • 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.

          • Community Events - Moderation for registration

            A new community event submitter must register to gain a login. This can be done on the Community Events login/register page. At the moment the only protection I see from script kiddies is the (optional) reCaptcha. I don't think this is sufficient to protect the calendar.
            Can we add moderation of new registrations by an Admin? Then the Admin has a chance to check out the applicant.

            • 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.

              • Make Event featured image dimensions adjustable (thumbnail, medium, full)

                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.

                  Whilst people can download a calendar to Google Calendars I would like them to be able to 'subscribe' to a calendar so they get updates we post to events.

                        Could you please elaborate a little bit? We do not quite follow what you are asking for, and worry that other people who might want a similar feature will not understand either. Thanks!

                      • Season tickets

                        Ability to bundle individual events into season ticket passes and still be able to view the attendees for each event included in the season and view the individual events on the calendar.

                        • Create the ability to auto export an event to Google Calendar when it is created

                          It seems it would be pretty easy to create the ability to export a new event to a Google Calendar at the same time the event is created as opposed to having to perform another few steps as in actually going to the calendar page, locating the new event and exporting it to the Google Calendar??

                          • Have a featured event - perhaps pin an event to the top of the list widget?

                            We hold multiple streams of events. One is busy and has heaps on, the other is less frequent but more important. We don't want the important ones lost amongst the others.

                            It would be great if we could 'feature' an event - at the very least make it so the even appears up the top of the widget (out of order).

                            • Ability to Remove Grid on Widget

                              On the sidebar widget, have the ability to remove the grid and only show the list of events with the large square dates. The grid looks great on a sidebar, but if the widget is used on a home page, it would be good to have the option to remove the grid. This is really a great plugin.

                                It would be great if you add a HTML ID in the ticket cart html code to create an anchor which brings you direct to the cart.

                                    • Customer view tickets and re-print tickets from their account control panel

                                      A way for users to view and print their tickets when logged in to my wordpress site. Perhaps a shortcode or link I could include in the order details page or even in the user profile

                                      It seems rather obscure to only let the customer retrieve their tickets via email.

                                      If the above is not possible, is it possible to allow the customer to choose an option to re-email the tickets?

                                      • 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?

                                        • Create options for setting different default view in Admin Panel of Cal PRO (I beg you)

                                          Currently, the default view is to show the farthest future event first (descending order). We have 1500+ events running at any one time and every time I open up the All Events view, it immediately defaults to last event. I spend so much dang time clicking on the little triangle and waiting for it to re-order ('cause I have to do it 50K times a month, it seems), I would pay to have the option of setting my own default view to ascending order. Please, for the love of all that is good, can you fix this?
