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. Add true Subscribe Functionality for iCal & Google

    Downloading an iCal file is NOT THE SAME as a true subscribe to calendar function where users calendars are updated automatically with new events, changes to events and so forth. It's a total disappointment to find out that the other suggestion was closed when it the suggested feature was clearly not implemented. Having a static download is actually worse because users think they've subscribed and never get updates and have no reason to believe that they aren't getting the latest info.

    • Add to cart with 0 tickets selected - fix woocommerce verification

      My suggestion for a solution:
      instead of setting a minimum quantity of 1 as a default value, I’d recommend adding an info message, when the user tries to add 0 tickets to cart reading the following:
      Please select the desired amount of tickets first, then click the add to cart button again. Thank you.

      Or something alike.
      This message should be in the form of the common woocommerce error notices , that also appear in usual product pages when trying to add the amount of 0 items to cart.

      It is als not a good idea to set 1 as…

      • Add a search to the scheduled imports

        I have 7 pages of scheduled imports and sometimes need to find one of them. Would save a LOT of time over the years if I could just search instead of browsing through 7 pages. Please add to the next upgrade!

        • Add links to the top of the calendar for previous/next months

          My background is in usability (I have a degree in Human Factors Psychology). One of the things that I was surprised not see in the calendar view was a set of links at the TOP of the calendar for previous/next months. I see them now at the bottom, but as a user looking to go to the next month, and with the bottom of the calendar cut off on my screen, I was confused for a bit when trying to figure out how to get to the next month.

          It would be fine to have the links at the bottom,…

          • Ability to prepend/append text to event title

            When importing events from multiple sources it would be nice to have the ability to prepend/append some text to indicate the event source and differentiate it from other imported events.

            For example, if an import feed came from "Event Organizer A", I might want to prepend "Event Organizer A--" to the event title such that the imported title appeared as "Event Organizer A--Event Title".

            Seems like this shouldn't be too difficult to implement and would be quite handy.

            • Send e-mail to a predefined address when an imported event is imported and waiting for approval

              When a new import has been made and the event is set to "waiting for approval" an e-mail is sent to one or more (pre defined by admin) addresses with a message saying "you have new events to approve".

              • Import recurring Facebook events

                Currently when Event Aggregator imports recurring events from Facebook, it imports it as one event (rather than a series of events). The first event is mistakenly the start time/date, and the last occurrence is the finish time/date.

                Here’s the event we’re trying to import from FB:

                • Show The Events Calendar link - configure to "open in new tab" rather than replacing the

                  Would like to include the "Powered by Events Calendar Pro" link on my client's calendars (to share the love and tell the world how awesome the plugin is) however, the link needs to open in a new tab rather than replace my clients calendar page. A simple mark-up is all that is needed.

                  • Ability to perform a CSV import from any URL

                    The free CSV importer should be able to import from any publicly-accessible URL instead of having to first upload to WordPress.

                    Additional functionality (worth paying for in the sense that it could be only available with an Event Aggregator license) I'd like to see is the ability to set intervals for scheduling re-importing from a CSV URL.

                    One-time and scheduled CSVs via URL would be useful for getting data from other sites that aren't running The Events Calendar (which Event Aggregator can already handle) and for situations where a third party is providing the data to us, sometimes on regular…

                      Here’s a tip that might come in handy while this functionality does not exist natively:

                      We’ve heard of some users having success with WP All Import (or similar plugins). These links may be helpful if you want to try going this route:

                    • Same filters for [tribe_events] as for [tribe_mini_calendar]

                      For [tribe_mini_calendar] shortcode we have a host of filter options such as city, ZIP, tag, category, etc. but for the [tribe_events] shortcode we only have category, featured, and date. It would be great to see all the other filter options on the [tribe_events] shortcode, as well

                        Thread in support forum (december 2016 and still nothing has happened to the inacceptable attendee list view... had to custom code it all so clients can actually work with that half baked piece of code..):

                        1. Request:
                        Currently as also mentioned in this thread:

                        there is no possiblity to see the names of the attendees, if entered on checkout, in the attendee list. Instead we see purchaser's name. Useless.

                        Why is that? Isn’t this the attendee list??
                        Also there should be a possiblity to enter or modify the attendee’s names at a later time, directly within the woocommerce…

                        • Show Number of Events in Filter

                          Dynamic event count for filters, similar to:
                          - SHIRTS (23)
                          - SHORTS (15)
                          - PANTS (6)
                          - HATS (31)

                          These filters would change as other options are selected, as seen on Amazon and other major sites.

                                Would be nice to add the filter bar feature to every page with a calendar via shortcode, not only in the event page.

                                Then it would allow you to make filtered calendars on pages, and let to the user play with the other fields to check information.

                                • If created via Community Events then show user who created it, as well as some information from their profile.

                                  It would be great to see who created the event and a little about them when viewing the event via the event's page!

                                  • Allow for non-consecutive multi-day events

                                    I have two clients requesting the creation of an single event that has multiple sessions.

                                    As an organizer, I want to create a single class with a single ticket that has multiple sessions. So a class might be on the last Thursday night of each month for a year. The additional sessions would have a place on the calendar but tickets would not be sold for them. Their place on the calendar is there mostly for a reminder.

                                    • add a default to filter in one category for calendar then give users the option to filer more in

                                      We have so many events on the calendar that visually it is too much with all of them on there. I would like a default setting that brings up just featured events first and then the user would "add in" more events to the calendar based of of the categories the user chooses to add.

                                      • Allow HTML markup in Additional Fields

                                        It would be very helpful to be able to use HTML markup and styling in text Additional Fields. I wanted to enter a set of links as a styled list, the result was a string of comma-separated links.

                                        • Notice of imported events

                                          Hi:

                                          I think it would be interesting that on the desktop of Wordpress, a notice appeared with the number of events imported and pending to publish. It would save us having to be continuously entering the list of events to check it out.

                                          regards
