Feature Ideas

Hey there and welcome to our feature request forum for The Events Calendar, Event Tickets and all of the premium plugins we develop provide on TheEventsCalendar.com!

We’re always looking for new and awesome ways to improve our products. We think they’re pretty great out of the box, but we also know that there are often things that could make them even better for how folks like yourself use them in the real world. 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? That’s where we can use your help!

If there are features that our products do not currently support but you think would be a huge added value for you and lots of other people, then please share them here with us. The submission form will walk you through a few quick questions to get the ball rolling.

Before posting your idea, here are a few tips that will help make your request stand out and succeed:

  • Look to see if someone else has suggested the same idea, or something very similar. Many ideas are being submitted and it’s very possible that another request already exists. In that case, add your vote to the existing request.
  • Be as descriptive as possible. What does the feature do? Where would it be located? Who would use it? How does this improve the overall experience of managing an events calendar in WordPress?
  • Use mockups, if possible. Pictures are worth a thousand words and having a visual often brings a greater level of clarity to an idea.

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 help desk. If you use our free core plugin, you can post in our forum on WordPress.org.

  1. Please provide an option (maybe an extension) to use abbreviations in US & Canadian state/province names

    Please provide an option (maybe an extension) to use abbreviations in US & Canadian state/province names: New Hampshire (NH), South Carolina (SC), British Columbia (BC), Prince Edward Island (PE).
    Many websites (including ours) use the abbreviations instead of the default full state name, which is a clumsy workaround and results in a dotted line under SC, BC, etc. (unable to reproduce this here).

  3. Add dates to tooltip in "Display all events with the same venue" extension

    The tooltip now displays:

  5. Separate data away from wordpress post meta database tables into independent tables

    A giant way to speed up the performance of events calendar plugin: store the data in dedicated database tables instead of wordpress' post meta.

    Woocommerce just did this and I think all plugin developers who potentially have a lot of data to store should, too:
    https://wptavern.com/woocommerce-custom-product-tables-plugin-now-in-beta-boasts-30-faster-page-loads

    They’re claiming a 30% boost but I ran some tests after migrating test data on a development site with your plugins and I easily got even better performance increase benchmarks! This is a really good idea that you guys would greatly benefit from implementing because the more events that are stored using the current…

  6. Allow save custom recurrence rule set and apply to new event

    I'd like to be able to create a set of recurrence rules, with both regular occurrences and exclusions - and then save them as a custom named ruleset that I can apply to another event.

    We have many events that run on a regular basis outside of school term-times. We can manually exclude the dates that fall within school holidays, but it would be a massive timesaver to only have to do this once and save it as for example "school holidays 2018" so that we can apply this custom set of rules to any other event. This has broader…

  7. elementor

    Elementor is the biggest thing to hit Wordpress and is growing in popularity and ability on day by day basis.

    It's time that Tribe should make Elementor a priority for easy integration and allow the non-intermediate users the ability to adapt their websites.

    I am sure a simple widget plugin to bring in the relevant meta data would suffice to start

  9. Meet accessibility criteria

    The following accessibility issues have been identified:

    Color
    – Link text – green link text on white background provides insufficient contrast (NOTE: this issue is caused by the theme rather than the plugin per se) (Hemingway theme).
    – On the “Welcome” page, on the video, the headings lack sufficient color contrast (blue text on black).
    – On the “Add New Event” page, in the “Date & Time” section, the hint appears to lack sufficient color contrast (light gray on white).
    – On the “Tags” page, the “Add New Tag” button seems to provide insufficient color contrast (white text on blue). …

  10. Add option to reorder zip and city for certain countries

    In quite a few european countries, the usual (and also "correct" in terms of what postal services expect on an envelope) way to write addresses is like this:

    Venue Name
    Street 23
    12345 City
    Country

    While the notation of street and number ("123, Park Avenue" vs. "Hauptstraße 17") isn’t an issue (since it’s only one field in the database), addresses like "Berlin, 12345 Deutschland" (instead of the correct "12345 Berlin, Deutschland" are quite disturbing.

    I am aware that src/views/modules/address.php could be customized by the user, but I would strongly suggest to add an option to reorder zip and city. This…

  11. Increase ticket capacity when after refunding and restocking via WooCommerce

    It would be nice if I didn't have to increase the ticket capcity after refunding and restocking a ticket via WooCommerce. This seems like it should be automated.

  12. Option to stop importing Private Eventbrite events

    I'd love to see options that keeps Eventbrite events marked as "private" from importing. I'd even say this should be the default option, as "private" events aren't listed on Eventbrite organization pages either.

  13. Offline App CheckIn

    We have a poor signal strength at the front door of our venue, so we couldn’t use the app to check anyone in.
    It would be really really GREAT if the app had some sort of offline mode including a list of ticket purchasers. So before every Event i download the final list of purchases and can check them in.

  14. Show Attendee Details on QR Scan

    Having the ability to check-in tickets via the new QR scan app is helpful, however all of our tickets have options available via Attendee Details that need to be shown. Shirt size for instance. If a summary of these details were displayed on QR scan it would stream line our check-in process.

  15. customize shortcode colors

    I used the WP customizer to style the default event page, but those settings don’t carry over when using shortcodes on other website pages. Without being able to set the style (primarily the bg colors for tables, title colors, cal info text etc) for the various calendar instances when using shortcodes, I'm unable to use them at all since they don't match the branding of my client site (currently using Avada theme) and are thus difficult to read by default. The purpose of me using a premium plug-in like this is to avoid having to customize theme files and stylesheets,…

  16. Scan tickets for specific event only

    The app is connected to the store with an API key. However with an event for today and one for tomorrow, people with tickets for tomorrow can attend today. There should be a way of limiting the scans to a selected event

  17. Allow people to view ticket type when using Event Tickets Plus App to check in

    When using your awesome new app to scan tickets we cannot view what ticket type is being checked in.
    Unfortunately I'm finding this out the day before our large event which has multiple ticket types available.
    A simple notice when it scans to say what ticket (type) it is would be perfect.

  18. Enable Attendee Information on WooCommerce Tickets

    The ability to collect the same attendee information when using the WooCommerce product of an Event Ticket.

    There are times when I want to allow users to purchase tickets on the event single page as well as on a dedicated conference page. However, the attendee information is not available on the WooCommerce product of the Event ticket. As these are instantions of the same ticket, the attendee information should captured in a consistent manner and available in the attendee list.

  19. Attendee Search iOS app

    As an event organizer I need the ability to search attendee's within the app. Far to often people forget their ticket or it goes to their spam folder. I need a quick and easy way to search their name within the app.

  20. Tribe Commerce - Allow user to purchase multiple ticket type

    Tribe Commerce - Currently only one ticket type can be purchased at one time. Would be awesome if the user was able to purchase multiple ticket types in one purchase e.g x2 Adult Tickets and x2 Child Tickets.
