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?

  1. Visibility of past events for organizers

    Hello,

    I would kindly ask you for implementing visibility of past events in "My events" tab.

    Now there are only future events.

    Thank you.

    • Organizer details visible only for himself

      What? Option to disable visibility and usability of "Organizer details" and "Event place" for other Organizers. So Organizer A can see only "Organizer details" and "Event place" entered by himself.

      Example:

      I think that if ADAM as event organizer create ORGANIZER DETAILS and EVENT PLACE.
      JOHN as another event organizer can see and use the same ORGANIZER DETAILS and EVENT PLACE as ADAM – I thought, that everyone can see and use only ORGRANIZER DETAILS AND EVENT PLACES entered by themselves not also ORGRANIZER DETAILS adn EVENT PLACES of others.

      So if Adam creates an organizer, you don’t want John…

      • Showing of future events by time, Event organizer subscribe, buttons JOIN or MAYBE

        Hello,

        FIRST:

        I am wondering if is possible to change showing of future events by end-time. Now it works like this:

        View as: list / month
        – The time is e.g. 13:00 pm
        – I still can see events from the same day but with ending-time of event at 11:00 am.

        Is it possible to change showing event by end-time ?

        SECOND:

        With PRO version, there is an Organizer View which allows us to see another event by this organizer. How about new functionality to “subscribe” to organizer and set up email notifications of newly posted events? E.g. with daily…

        • Change default ticket quantity to '1' instead of '0' - to avoid user confusion

          This is just so basic it's ridiculous. Please set the default ticket quantity to 1. If someone is buying a ticket, they're never buying or attempting to buy "0" tickets.

          If someone is ready to click "add to cart", why make them select "1" from 0 in a spinner control? Especially if they're doing this on a mobile phone.

          We lose a lot of non-technical customers because they look past the "0 quantity", hit "ADD TO CART" and get "Your Cart is Empty" and get confused and don't sign up for an event.

          And, this isn't a caching issue, I…

            3 comments  ·  Tickets  ·  Admin →

            Thanks for the idea! The main reason we chose 0 is because many users have multiple ticket types available for an event. If a user clicks add to cart, then they will get 1 of each, and that is certainly not good either. If however you only have 1 ticket type for each event, a theme override for WooTickets can make the amount default to 1 instead of 0. If you would like to do this override, please open up a topic on the support forums and we will gladly assist.

            Cheers!

          • 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…

            • Send Notification Email to Attendee List

              Add an email template and the facility to send an email to an events attendees list. Really handy for cancellations or just a reminder that the event is near.

                • Option to change Google Maps to other Maps provider

                  I have been using your plugin for a while now, and since my business is in China, there's is no or limited access to a lot of google services, including maps. Now I disabled all reference to google services and naturally, the maps in event calendar are not showing anymore. It would be nice to have option to:
                  a) switch to alternative maps provider (like bing or openstreetmap)
                  b) just display address as is, without a map.

                  thanks

                    Just give the ability to select a specific blog category you want the events to be posted under. This way users can target that category on things like home page widgets or sidebar widgets for specific post categories.

                          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.

                          • Enable option for 'and' behaviour as an alternative to 'or' logic

                            I’ve noticed that Filter bar is working the opposite way that I thought it would.

                            Given the following scenario:

                            Event X – Assigned to only Category A
                            Event Y – Assigned to only Category B
                            Event Z – Assigned to both Category A and Category B

                            Filtering on category A brings back X & Z as expected.
                            Filtering on Category B brings back Y & Z as expected.
                            Filtering on Category A AND Category B brings back X, Y & Z – not expected!

                            I was hoping that the filter would look for events that had been categorised BOTH for…

                                  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?

                                  • Advertisement spot

                                    I work for a magazine and the way we make our money is through advertisement. We are currently starting up new campaigns for our clients to be able to run ads on our newly designed website. One page we are wanting to sell is our event page "What's Happening", which is where the event calendar is located. How can I insert a banner image ad above, below and beside my calendar?

                                      • Export weekly events as plain text ... or even better yet as html tables with inline styling.

                                        We'd really like to be able to export a list of the week's events to include in a weekly email. At the moment, plain text would be fine. But it would be great to be able to export a table (inline styled) for HTML email campaigns - and have the option to be able to export it by day, week, month etc. :)

                                        • 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
