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.

  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 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,…

      • 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.

        • Optimize / clean up event submit form by removing selectable options

          A switch in the settings to hide or turn off the follwowing fields in the event submit form would be useful:
          d) Timezone (not necessary if there are only events of one country/region)
          e) Recurring events (not every calendar needs them)

          • 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.

            • Make Filter Bar compatible with shortcoded calendars

              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.

              • 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

                • 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!

                  • Related Events Snippet on Event Page

                    On every events page there should be a section where you could scroll through the rest of the events without leaving the page, and you should be able to scroll through them like in rotation mode with left and right arrows.

                    • Limit imports in aggregator

                      A way to limit how many weeks out the aggregator will import for EACH calendar import. Or even number of events to import for each import.

                      • Hide remaining tickets

                        I want to hide the number of remaining tickets, until a certain threshold is met.

                        At the moment I do that by adding that threshold in src/views/wootickets/tickets.php in line 131
                        if ( $remaining && $remaining < $threshold)

                        It would be nice though, if that threshold could be somehow defined in the Wordpress backend, so that I can for example define a global threshold and can turn that functionality to hide on or off. (Like in woocommerce).
                        In addition it would be nice, if for each ticket the threshold could be set individually.
                        So for example, the check is then performed. …

                            • 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:

                                    • "This Weekend" / "This Week" / "This Month" Options in Filter Bar / Tribe Bar

                                      Such a feature would help tremendously for people who want to know what's on this weekend or see what's coming up next month. This isn't immediately obviously when looking at the a chronological list of events and the date picker is cumbersome for this sort of task.

                                        Improve the search function, especially in month view, so that users can search for future events not in the current month - seems like a very basic feature to me but it seems the only way to do this is to purchase the Filter Bar.... you then have 2 search options which is confusing. A proper search feature should be a standard part of Events Cal Pro please

                                        • Schedule auto-post to social media

                                          Create a way to schedule auto posts to social media for upcoming events. This would reduce a lot of social media labor and strengthen the marketing of events.
