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

I suggest you ...

  1. Recurrence Rules - please add time to (DATE) option

    Can you add option to add different time for recurring event?
    So when adding I could simply choose:
    Recurrence rules > (DATE) and time if different than the original one

    Instead of using confusing (CUSTOM) rules.

    • Do not include deleted tickets or cancelled orders in participant list sold units.

      Right now, if you look at the number of ticket sold in the participant list, it include tickets that were sold then cancelled, or completely deleted orders. I suggest that this number only includes existing participant or that another item is created to see the number of expected attendees and active tickets sold.

      • Add a SMS Text messaging option as reminder for events

        Having an email and SMS reminder option for events would be great for teams or groups.

        • Automatic, continuous/recurring syncing of Facebook Events

          At the moment it's possible to re-sync an event manually by entering a single event and hitting the button. It's ok for small number of events with few changes but with big calendars with lot of events changing during weeks or months it can be a challenge. It would be great to automate this.

          • allow the option to add attendee information to the emailed tickets and admin confirmation.

            Thank you for the ability to collect Attendee Information i.e., First and Last Name of multiple tickets to the actual purchase process prior to check out. Now, how about an option to add that collected information to either the Attendee Ticket and / or the Administrator email?

            • Divi Integration

              Divi is currently one of the best-selling Wordpress themes. It integrates smoothly with WooCommerce but currently doesn't integrate well with The Events Calendar.

              • Recurrence vs. repeating events

                Scenario: A singe event that spans several days at the same time. For example a 3-day seminar or class that is 9:00 am - 3:00 pm on all three days.

                As it stands now, when you setup the recurrence pattern, on the calendar it looks like three separate events on separate dates. I would be nice to see it span the dates. More so, if you set a price, on the surface it looks like the price is 'X' amount for each day and not for the entire event.

                I have seen this functionality in other premium event calendars.

                • Enable latitude longitude for the community events front end submission form.

                  We have a lot of events that don’t have a proper address, and I’d like to offer them the option to enter those in if they know them. Even better to offer a link to a tool to find them out. These fields are available in the backend for events, so I don’t know why it shouldn’t be for the front end. I feel like there should just an option to click on from the settings, rather than having to create a customized version of the front end template.

                  • Add overview of attendees to calendar events

                    I have 20+ events and would like to get an overview of number of attendees to the events. As it is today we have to click every single event to see how many attendees are joining.

                    Basically all we need is an added column to the existing events overview (wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=tribe_events) with the current number of attendees.

                    The thread (https://theeventscalendar.com/support/forums/topic/single-overview-of-ticket-attendees/#post-1124416) also discusses this feature, and Joe has brought a temporary solution that is very limited in use of both sorting and filtering, however better than the current solution.

                    • Add datepicker to Filter Bar

                      I´d like to have an additional feature in the Filter Bar.
                      The user should be able to select a "from date" and a "to date" with a datepicker. So he can see all events that at least start at the "from date" and end not later than the "to date" in the list view (or something like that).

                      • Have a rolling calendar view?

                        One where the rows of weeks continually shift upwards, so that you always see the next four weeks or so in advance?

                        If a visitor happens to visit the page on the last day or two of the month, they’ll see a lot of greyed-out squares and an apparent lack of events; they’d have to click the tiny arrows beside the month to turn the page.. The current list of upcoming events underneath only seems to show those in the month currently being viewed, so a rolling calendar would ensure students see all upcoming events, even later in the month.

                            • email notification events

                              Hello it seems when a user's submitted event is approved by admin, they do not receive the email..

                              "Event approved by admin on <date>"

                              Why have you not implemented this? It seems only admin receives email notification. The user should receive email notification if his/her event is approved (published) by admin.

                              Please advise if your'e implementing this?

                                It would be cleaner and more professional to have "at" instead of "@" before the event time.

                                    Hi,
                                    I have heard that you are going to update the recurring events at some point so you can list, for example:
                                    1. An event that lasts 3 days (And the attendee is going for all three days- Eg a three day seminar)
                                    2. A true recurring event that occurs every week but is bookable on each of those weeks (Eg A band night that happens every Friday)

                                    I would use both these elements in my website, but also with the 2nd option particularly it would be amazing to enable reviews... so customers can let everyone know how good the…

                                      It will be nice to have an option to select which event I want to appear first in that days calendar (even when is the month or week appearance). Or even better, if there is a way we can organice all events by priority for the owners of the site, not as the filter you already have that is more for the users.

                                      • Google Rich Cards Support?

                                        Google is now going to be having Rich Cards, the evolution of rich snippets. It would be great to be an early adopter and have this support. There is going to be a sitemap feature to these as well with webmaster tools preview.

                                        Note: right not its only for recipes and movies, but im sure they'll be rolling more out.

                                        • Add an option to only show next occurrence of recurring event in 'Upcoming Events' widget

                                          The main reason I upgraded to the PRO version of The Events Calendar was to take advantage of the recurring events feature, however after setting this up the 'Upcoming Events' sidebar widget has now become useless as it simply displays the same event over and over because several of the occurrences are before the next independent event.

                                          I would like to see the option to only show the next instance of a recurring event in the widget's list.
