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

  1. Add more filters to shortcode [tribe_events]

    Add more filters and options to the [tribe_events] shortcode so that it can be customized more.

    • GDPR compliance: Require user to confirm email by providing a link in the confirmation email (opt in)

      The booking/RSVP would be completed only if the user confirms his/her email by clicking the link (opt in).
      Currently, a user can enter any address without the consent of the address owner. So especially for GDPR compliance every booking should be opted in.

      https://tribe.uservoice.com/forums/195723-feature-ideas/suggestions/18963970-add-an-opt-in-checkbox-for-rsvp-confirmation-email does not fulfill legal requirements since having the user tick a checkbox when submitting the form is not considered "opt in".

      The same goes for https://tribe.uservoice.com/forums/195723-feature-ideas/suggestions/15837367-rsvp-email. Manually mailing users to verify their email does not suffice.

      • Autofill the featured image in Event Tickets

        Make it possible to add the WooCommerce Product featured image from within the ticket meta-block in the event. I would be perfectly happy with either of three solutions:
        1 reusing the header image
        2 reusing the featured image of the event
        3 selecting a separate image for just this reason.

        But can understand if option 1 might conflict with how the image might be used otherwise and option 2 might conflict with the fact that the ticket is stored basically separate from the event, so perhaps option 3 should be it and will save me a lot of time anyway.…

        • Extend date range in event aggregator to allow more than the next 3 months to be imported

          I have imports to make from calendars which are only seasonal, e.g. some special events in september only. Unfortunately I cannot aggregate them because i can only go 3 months into the future.

          More options would be appreciated here, at least 12 months (or even unlimited if possible and of course on your own risk). I hacked it in now myself but that's not the best solution obviously.

          And would the amount limit not still be in place?

          (and for the record, I am using the custom url to import from other tribe event calendars)

          • allow user to save/star events

            Allow users to save, star or favourite events. So they can plan which events they would like to attend. This would be a huge value-add to the end user where there are a lot of events to choose from and they may want to attend a few.

            • Allow Event Aggregator to delete events which have been deleted on Google Calendar

              If an event is deleted in Google Calendar, it is not deleted in The Events Calendar database next time an import occurs, meaning that events deleted in our Google Calendar must also be manually deleted in WordPress admin. This double handling is forcing us to consider other options to an otherwise excellent plugin. I understand this is also a problem with iCal imports, but I couldn't find a post specifically about Google Calendar imports to upvote.

              • 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.

                  This snippet changes the “iCal Export” buttons to be webcal:// links, which suggests to calendar applications that they should subscribe instead of downloading the .ics file.

                  It requires The Events Calendar version 4.6.5 or newer.

                • Make it possible to schedule a CSV import

                  I'm sure you heard this already but the inability to schedule imports of CSV data limits the ability to connect to so many other data sources.

                  And for us it makes your otherwise great product useless as it is our only data source

                  Since you can already do Google & ical is there a reason that extending to CSV is very difficult?

                    It would be great to have a month view with the possibility to add a new event directly.

                      • have an option for setting defaults for the meta fields. Such as defaulting to "All Day Event"

                        It would be great if the Event Settings included options to set defaults. I'd love to be able to default new events to ALL DAY, rather than having to check that box every time.

                        • Event statistics report

                          Our organization would like an easy way to compile event statistics for a specific time period (calendar year, for example). TEC doesn't include any such reporting functionality and I'm not aware of any 3rd party solutions to this other than using an SQL tool.

                          Data that we would be interested in includes:

                          * number of events in the time period
                          * number of tickets sold in the time period
                          * total revenue for the time period

                          Thanks!

                          • TEC & TECPro Versioning

                            The versions numbers have slipped so far apart that it is difficult to pair up the two.

                            I suggest that the version follow each other through every update, even if one or the other is not updated. In the release notes, you could add a note that states "This release is only a version number update." when nothing is changed.

                            • Add unique classes to each month title in span.tribe-events-list-separator-month

                              I’m using JS to add the name of the month as a class to the span.tribe-events-list-separator-month

                              The goal is to use custom graphics for the month headings instead of text. The JS I’m using is not very foolproof, and only fires when the page is finished loading. I had to hide the “next/prev events” buttons, because they reload the page with ajax, so my JS doesn’t get triggered, and the month headings then “disappear”.

                              If that span had a class with the month name or month number in it already, I wouldn’t need the JS, and it would work perfectly.

                              • Please add common timezone abbreviations

                                It's great that time zones are supported, and that a lot of major cities are included - unfortunately there are loads that aren't.

                                When adding international events, it's a major hassle to have to look up the UTC offset for those frequent occurrences where a city isn't there.

                                Thankfully, it's an easy fix that'll make things much easier:

                                Simply include common time zones such as EST, PDT, CET etc in the time zone selector - this will VASTLY speed up adding international events.
