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

    The event submit form has several options that are not needed to be selected *every time* an event is submitted by a user or are not necessarily be selectable by the user:

    a) Show Google Maps (we want to show it all the time)
    b) Show link to Google Maps (we want to show it all the time)
    c) Select if the currency symbol is before or after the costs shown (we want it always be shown after the currency)

    I would recommend to turn them out of the event submit form and move them to the Events Calendar settings.…

    • 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.

      • Each Day Needs it's Own Hours

        When I create a venue, it assumes that M-F hours are the same, but we are always open late on Fridays. I have one venue that is closed on Tuesdays. We need each day to have it's own hours.

        • Beaver Builder Compatibility - Full Integration So Everything Works

          Beaver Builder's Page Builder is hugely popular with over 275K downloads. Right now the widget don't work completely in the page builder. Some functionality is missing and there are bugs.

          It would be grand of there could be a concerted effort to make sure Event Calendar is fully compatible with Beaver Builder.

          • "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.

            • Selling tickets thru WooCommerce Product Page, and not the Event Page - Improvements

              I use Beaver Builder and (more importantly) the new Beaver Themer plugin which allows for Woo product pages to be way more easily styled (praise be!). In order to benefit from those plugins, I would need to sell tickets using Woo’s product page and not the single event page. To that end I have followed your article:

              https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/selling-tickets-from-the-woocommerce-products-page/

              That mostly made sense, and worked. However, doing that you lose some functionality associated with the event page’s “Add to Cart” code. Namely, Woo’s “Add to Cart” won’t trigger the prompts for custom attendee data (if set).

              Would be great if the…

              • Multiple RSVP name inputs fields

                When someone clicks to 3 RSVPs attending - I want to have them add each individual attendee name. Right now RSVPs are only allowed to enter one name.

                Also I'm needing to add more text fields to the RSVP form.

                Also is there a way to modify the excel sheet to export this extra field data?

                • Events List Widget Beaver Builder Compatibility – Categories Filter Not Showing in Widget

                  When I add your events list widget to Beaver Builder layout, the categories i’ve added do not show as filter options. However, when I add the events list widget to a wordpress sidebar, it works.

                  Shortcodes do seem to work and resolve the problem, but they are not an option for a client that is not tech savvy. So I would like to get this resolved if possible.

                  Here is what I see when I add events list widget to a wp footer widget area:

                          Thank you for taking the time to reach out and share an idea. It’s good to know what would be handy for the devs.

                          To quote our chief strategist “we’ll be adding it for sure”. We do not have an ETA. This was just added to our roadmap which maps out over a years worth of the team’s time and is full up at the moment. But as soon as we’re able this feature will be added. Hopefully it is something we can slip in when there is a small opening.

                        • have a sample excel file with the column headings that one can copy the headings quickly

                          I have imported many csv files to applications. Another plugin has a sample excel file with all the headings that I can just copy into mine. I can see in seconds how to do it as all I need are the headings spelled exactly as need which I copy and paste. Your instructions make it incredibly more complex than it needs to be and I they headings are in rows, not columns, and you can't copy it. You make it a lot of work when it isn't.

                            • Change ticket purchase form position on individual events

                              I know that I can change the position of the ticket purchase form globally via Events > Settings > Tickets > Location of Tickets form. For a site with a majority of impulse-purchase events that are low cost, it is a good idea to put the ticket form at the top so people can click it and buy immediately.

                              But there are times, for a few expensive events, when it is better to place the ticket purchase form at the end of the "long sell" so people don't get sticker shock at the top of the event page and click…

                                I know this is not possible with shortcodes. "First, there can only be one “main calendar view” per page! This means that you cannot use the [tribe_events] shortcode on the main events page, and you cannot have multiple [tribe_events] shortcodes on a single page.", however I would be overjoyed if there was a way to hack it together in PHP. I attempted to do just that, by setting up…

                                    Hey,

                                    It would be nice to be able to export an event with all the details:

                                    Tickets Type Sold, Quantity, Ticket Face Value, Fees, Additional Fees, Payment Gateway

                                    This way getting all that information doesn't require 4 different exports and saves time when responding to your organizers.

                                    Can we make this happen?

                                    Cheers

                                    • Combine the Advanced Filter Bar with Standard Tribe Bar

                                      It would be great if the advanced filter bar completely replaced the standard bar once installed. This was we can maintain the functionality of both, but only have a single filter/search bar on the screen. Right now it is a bit confusing to have two separate filters. I have noticed several complains on the forums and on the feature request page stating that viewers are becoming confused by the filter options and unable to find their desired events. Although many solutions have been proposed, I think merging the two bars would mitigate a majority of the concerns and reduce space…

                                      • Add a checkbox in settings to turn on headers to separate and display the events each day in the list mode.

                                        in list mode, I need the option of separating events by day, with a simple date header

                                        • IP Location "Events Near Me"

                                          I suggest to have the user locate “Events Near Me” by utilizing the IP location on their smart device rather than typing in a certain city.
