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. 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.

      • Notifications for Pending Imported Events

        When a new import has been made and the event is set to "waiting for approval" an e-mail is sent to one or more (pre defined by admin) addresses with a message saying "you have new events to approve".

        • Autofill the featured image in WooCommerce 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.…

          • Reduce the number of generated WooComerce products

            This might also be solved by filtering out the tickets from WooCommerce admin's product list, but it seems now that I have no option beside having a product for every individual ticket. It would be nice to be able to reuse an existing product and link that to several event tickets, when they are basically the same but just for a different date, thus allowing to minimizing the number of event-ticket products generated

            • Managing attendees and order information from admin

              As an admin, I need to manage attendees of an event. For example I may need to remove an attendee, or edit the contact information of an attendee, I may also need to add an attendee to an event.

              For example a company buys 4 tickets to an event, but later on finds out that one employee could not make it, the company then calls and ask admin to remove a ticket.

              • Add a search to the scheduled imports

                I have 7 pages of scheduled imports and sometimes need to find one of them. Would save a LOT of time over the years if I could just search instead of browsing through 7 pages. Please add to the next upgrade!

                • hide event tickets from wordpress & woocommerce search

                  Since I run a business that sells services, online courses and physical products next to tickets for small workshops and live courses, and find that in the search results there are a lot of tickets for events (both future and past events) that I really don't want in that results. I can't just filter out the product CPT, because I also have other products in store, I do want to show.

                  So I really need something (preverably a setting) to prevent event tickets from appearing in the search result (both the general WP-search and the WooCommerce Search). Whatever sollution should…

                    It is possible for users to delete global Event Categories. This is a security issue. Please provide the ability to lock this down.

                      • Display simultaneous events in Week View without overlap

                        Currently, simultaneous events in the Week View display by default as overlapping bubbles.

                        This obscures the title and other information which users need to decide if they want to learn more by hovering or clicking.

                        The Month View currently handles this situation well by stacking the events.

                        Why not make the Week View handle it the same way?

                        • Add links to the top of the calendar for previous/next months

                          My background is in usability (I have a degree in Human Factors Psychology). One of the things that I was surprised not see in the calendar view was a set of links at the TOP of the calendar for previous/next months. I see them now at the bottom, but as a user looking to go to the next month, and with the bottom of the calendar cut off on my screen, I was confused for a bit when trying to figure out how to get to the next month.

                          It would be fine to have the links at the bottom,…

                          • Ability to perform a CSV import from any URL

                            The free CSV importer should be able to import from any publicly-accessible URL instead of having to first upload to WordPress.

                            Additional functionality (worth paying for in the sense that it could be only available with an Event Aggregator license) I'd like to see is the ability to set intervals for scheduling re-importing from a CSV URL.

                            One-time and scheduled CSVs via URL would be useful for getting data from other sites that aren't running The Events Calendar (which Event Aggregator can already handle) and for situations where a third party is providing the data to us, sometimes on regular…

                              Here’s a tip that might come in handy while this functionality does not exist natively:

                              We’ve heard of some users having success with WP All Import (or similar plugins). These links may be helpful if you want to try going this route:
                              - http://www.wpallimport.com/tour/scheduled-imports/

                            • Import recurring Facebook events

                              Currently when Event Aggregator imports recurring events from Facebook, it imports it as one event (rather than a series of events). The first event is mistakenly the start time/date, and the last occurrence is the finish time/date.

                              Here’s the event we’re trying to import from FB:
                              https://www.facebook.com/events/1103532993123375

                              • Ability to prepend/append text to event title

                                When importing events from multiple sources it would be nice to have the ability to prepend/append some text to indicate the event source and differentiate it from other imported events.

                                For example, if an import feed came from "Event Organizer A", I might want to prepend "Event Organizer A--" to the event title such that the imported title appeared as "Event Organizer A--Event Title".

                                Seems like this shouldn't be too difficult to implement and would be quite handy.

                                    • Add featured image to Events widget

                                      We have the ability to choose lots of different data to display or hide... all except image. I really want to show my next three events with images and details below instead of the clunky calendar graphic with the date. it just doesn't look good.

                                      • Add the ability to have multiple days for one event type. Would be very helpful for weekend events and would display correctly.

                                        The only way currently to enter an weekend long event is to add 2 events, one on Saturday and one on Sunday. Other wise it does not display correctly and confusing to the reader. You desperately need a weekend even option with different recurring options. I see many people are asking for this. Thank you!

                                        • LearnDash Integration

                                          Event Espresso integrates with LearnDash such that event attendees can be added to LD courses or groups. I would love to see a similar integration.
