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. Recurrence Rules - please add time to (DATE) option

    Can you add option to add different time for recurring event?
    So when adding I could simply choose:
    Recurrence rules > (DATE) and time if different than the original one

    Instead of using confusing (CUSTOM) rules.

    • Combine the Advanced Filter Bar with Standard Filter 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 SMS Text messaging option as reminder for events

        Having an email and SMS reminder option for events would be great for teams or groups.

        • WooCommerce > Show Attendee Meta information on the checkout page

          USER STORIES & GOALS

          - I am a customer who added multiple tickets to my WooCommerce shopping cart, I would like to confirm that I filled out the data for each ticket accurately before clicking Proceed to Checkout.
          - I am a customer who realized that one of the multiple tickets in my cart has inaccurate attendee meta info. I would like to edit only that ticket, or at least remove it from my cart without removing all of the others.

          SOME POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS

          • Sort Events by distance

            A really useful feature that is missing is the possibility to sort the events by distance.
            After performing a search, an user would normally expects to see the events displayed by distance (and then by date) so that the closest event is listed as first item in the list and so on...

            It just makes no sense to have a random list when you can search by address...

            • Set Time of Import

              Include the option to set when the daily, weekly..., are actually imported.

              Then you can grab and import events at a preferred time during the day. Early morning and review each day, end of day to grab all new entries, etc.

                Currently community events limits file upload to images. An additional pdf upload would be handy.

                • Do not include deleted tickets or cancelled orders in participant list sold units.

                  Right now, if you look at the number of ticket sold in the participant list, it include tickets that were sold then cancelled, or completely deleted orders. I suggest that this number only includes existing participant or that another item is created to see the number of expected attendees and active tickets sold.

                    Hey everyone!

                    We wanted to let you know that we recently released Event Tickets and Event Tickets Plus 4.3.2 and it included a fix for the issue you reported for ticket sales reports not being accurate after tickets had been cancelled or refunded. Please update when you have the chance and defintely let us know if you continue to run into any problems.

                    Thanks so much for the heads up and for your patience while we worked on this!

                    Cheers,
                    Geoff

                    • allow the option to add attendee information to the emailed tickets and admin confirmation.

                      Thank you for the ability to collect Attendee Information i.e., First and Last Name of multiple tickets to the actual purchase process prior to check out. Now, how about an option to add that collected information to either the Attendee Ticket and / or the Administrator email?

                          Hello,
                          This is partially possible. Go to the month view of the calendar you want to import. Go to the bottom and copy the target link from the “Export the month’s events” button.
                          Should be something like this:
                          http://domain.com/events/?ical=1&tribe_display=month

                          On the site where you want to import go to import > iCalendar, and paste in the url. For start date select what you need. Hit preview and you’ll see the events. Now you just need to select the ones you need and import them.

                          Hope this helps!

                        • Recurrence vs. repeating events

                          Scenario: A singe event that spans several days at the same time. For example a 3-day seminar or class that is 9:00 am - 3:00 pm on all three days.

                          As it stands now, when you setup the recurrence pattern, on the calendar it looks like three separate events on separate dates. I would be nice to see it span the dates. More so, if you set a price, on the surface it looks like the price is 'X' amount for each day and not for the entire event.

                          I have seen this functionality in other premium event calendars.

                            I´d like to have an additional feature in the Filter Bar.
                            The user should be able to select a "from date" and a "to date" with a datepicker. So he can see all events that at least start at the "from date" and end not later than the "to date" in the list view (or something like that).

                                We used to be able to import a list of single facebook events. Now we have to go through 3 steps for each one. A pain if you have 20 events to import. The whole purpose of Aggregator is to make things easier, not harder than in previous versions.

                                • Import Google Calendar attached images as event image

                                  I am quite surprised this feature has not been included in a prior iCal Importer update or the release of Event Aggregator.

                                  Can Event Aggregator import the attached image in Google Calendar and use it as the event image for Wordpress? I know this can be done as some other platforms already do this.

                                  I have hundreds of events on my calendar, and adding an image to every single one is not an option.

                                  Thank you!

                                  • duplicate tickets

                                    Apparently tickets are not a registered WP custom post type because you can't duplicate them like you can events and ticket fieldsets with the Post Duplicator plugin.

                                    It would be fabulous to have a link "Duplicate ticket" appear next to "Edit", etc for each ticket.

                                    I have 7 tickets for one event that are woocommerce tickets. The price changes for those after a certain date, so I have to create 7 duplicates at the new price. Kind of a pain.

                                    • Add a datepicker for birth dates (or any other dates) to tickets

                                      As we offer many events for kids (e.g. ski lessons) it is mandatory to receive the kid's birth date. If we just add a text field, we get different date formats and can't use them for further planing in Excel.

                                      • Collect All Attendee Information on a Separate Page

                                        I'm happy to see that we can now collect info from all attendees. However, it is a bit problematic to collect this information on the event page. It would be a more advantageous workflow if the users were allowed to input the attendee information on either the checkout page or a page specifically designed for this purpose. Requesting attendee information on the event page causes design conflicts and can make the page very cluttered/large depending upon the amount of tickets purchased and information requested. I highly recommend that you adjust the UX accordingly for a more user friendly experience.

                                        • Integrate Filter Bar with WPML

                                          Here it says that Filter Bar is not integrated with WPML and that there are no plans: https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/wpml-support/

                                          I vote for integrating this with a high priority.

                                          There is one forum post from Barry, which gives an idea: https://theeventscalendar.com/support/forums/topic/hook-into-filter-bars-event-category-to-achieve-wpml-translation/
