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.

I suggest you ...

  1. Please provide an option (maybe an extension) to use abbreviations in US & Canadian state/province names

    Please provide an option (maybe an extension) to use abbreviations in US & Canadian state/province names: New Hampshire (NH), South Carolina (SC), British Columbia (BC), Prince Edward Island (PE).
    Many websites (including ours) use the abbreviations instead of the default full state name, which is a clumsy workaround and results in a dotted line under SC, BC, etc. (unable to reproduce this here).

      • Add dates to tooltip in "Display all events with the same venue" extension

        The tooltip now displays:
        Event (1)
        Event (2)
        Event (3)
        Address: 123 Main St (No city)
        Would like to see:
        Event (1) ... Date
        Event (2) ... Date
        Event (3) ... Date

          • Add option to reorder zip and city for certain countries

            In quite a few european countries, the usual (and also "correct" in terms of what postal services expect on an envelope) way to write addresses is like this:

            Venue Name
            Street 23
            12345 City
            Country

            While the notation of street and number ("123, Park Avenue" vs. "Hauptstraße 17") isn’t an issue (since it’s only one field in the database), addresses like "Berlin, 12345 Deutschland" (instead of the correct "12345 Berlin, Deutschland" are quite disturbing.

            I am aware that src/views/modules/address.php could be customized by the user, but I would strongly suggest to add an option to reorder zip and city. This…

            • Show Attendee Details on QR Scan

              Having the ability to check-in tickets via the new QR scan app is helpful, however all of our tickets have options available via Attendee Details that need to be shown. Shirt size for instance. If a summary of these details were displayed on QR scan it would stream line our check-in process.

              • Allow people to view ticket type when using Event Tickets Plus App to check in

                When using your awesome new app to scan tickets we cannot view what ticket type is being checked in.
                Unfortunately I'm finding this out the day before our large event which has multiple ticket types available.
                A simple notice when it scans to say what ticket (type) it is would be perfect.

                • Scan tickets for specific event only

                  The app is connected to the store with an API key. However with an event for today and one for tomorrow, people with tickets for tomorrow can attend today. There should be a way of limiting the scans to a selected event

                  • Events categories and events dates in the permalink structure

                    For a better SEO friendly URL structure I suggest the customization of the permalink structure including the category for the single event and maybe the date of th event too.

                    • Autofill the Event Tickets header image

                      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.…

                      • Tribe Commerce - Allow user to purchase multiple ticket type

                        Tribe Commerce - Currently only one ticket type can be purchased at one time. Would be awesome if the user was able to purchase multiple ticket types in one purchase e.g x2 Adult Tickets and x2 Child Tickets.

                        • Enable Attendee Information on WooCommerce Tickets

                          The ability to collect the same attendee information when using the WooCommerce product of an Event Ticket.

                          There are times when I want to allow users to purchase tickets on the event single page as well as on a dedicated conference page. However, the attendee information is not available on the WooCommerce product of the Event ticket. As these are instantions of the same ticket, the attendee information should captured in a consistent manner and available in the attendee list.

                          • Add additional filter for 'tickets/email.php' email

                            In the file `/src/Tribe/Meta/Render.php` add an additional filter the meta data to be transformed before the email is sent.
                            ```
                            $meta_data = apply_filters( 'tribe_event_tickets_plus_email_meta_data', $meta_data, $item );
                            ```

                            Why?
                            I have a meta field that stores the user's ID instead of their name so I can use that throughout the application to grab additional information related to the user. So when the email goes out it only shows their user id instead of showing the name of the user.
                            Adding this filter will allow me to transform that id into whatever content I would like.

                                    • Allow organizers to choose their tax rate

                                      It would be great if the Organizer can choose which taxes to apply if any to their event.

                                      So as they add a ticket price, they can add the tax rate.

                                      The tax rates would be chosen from the tax rate table in Woocommerce.

                                      Hope you can make this happen

                                      Jo

                                      • Increase ticket capacity when after refunding and restocking via WooCommerce

                                        It would be nice if I didn't have to increase the ticket capcity after refunding and restocking a ticket via WooCommerce. This seems like it should be automated.

                                        • Make the Ticket ID and Security Code Optional

                                          I'm sure some derive a benefit from them but, to me, they just confuse customers who don't see security codes and Ticket IDs when they purchase tickets from vendors like Eventbrite.

                                          The problem is especially problematic, to me at least, when the purchaser purchases multiple tickets and is presented with a long list of Security Codes and Ticket IDs on the woocommerce thank you page, the order confirmation email from Woocommerce and the then again on the individual tickets themselves.
