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. For "Event Tickets" make RSVP default to 1 instead of 0

    As of now when people land up on my event page http://trainersexpo.com/event/20th-may-2017/ they are not sure what they have to do. So if the RSVP defaults to 1 instead of 0, that would help a lot. I've got emails from close friends saying they couldn't register. :)

      Howdy Rishi!

      Thank you so much for taking the time to reach out and share this idea, and encouraging others to consider voting for it. I really appreciate your feedback.

      You are not the first person to suggest this. Unfortunately, this feature would break many current users websites. Thus it is not something we can add. However, we are developing a solution that will improve the experience for not only those users, but you as well. It will be very similar to this snippet, which prevents users from submitting the cart unless at least one ticket is selected. When that snippet is inserted in your theme’s functions.php it will behave as described.

      I do have to decline this request, simply because we can not knowingly implement a feature that will be considered a bug by some of our userbase. But, I do really appreciate your feedback, and want to…

    • Add the option to allow the user to download the event ticket.

      Hey, I've been using your plugins for over a year now and the consistent problem of ticket emails not sending can be solved if the option to download the ticket as a pdf was made available. This would reduce the amount of emails about not receiving tickets, the user can log into their account and see the tab My Events with the tickets ready to download and resend as an email.

      I know I'm not alone who is still suffering the emails so this would be a really cool addition.

      Vote it up!!!!

      • 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.

        • Allow file upload for pdfs

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

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

            • Have both Purchase Fields and Ticket fields

              Allow for a set of fields for the collection of tickets purchase, as well as a set of fields for each ticket. Especially helpful for business or parent information when bulk purchase of tickets is made for multiple employees or children.

              • 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…

                • Event Aggregator To Remove Deleted Events During Import

                  We have many bands and many events, so we found the Event Aggregator a useful tool for automatically populating our website calendar from Google Calendar. However, there often is a shifting of bands from location to location, or cancellations at the last minute. However, if a band is removed from the Google calendar, it is not removed in tribe_events during the next scheduled import. Would love to see a feature that truly updates the event list and removes deleted events during each scheduled import. It would also be nice for the aggregator to highlight events that seem similar to each…

                  • 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.

                    • One-page Checkout on Event pages

                      For a streamlined purchase process, put the checkout form directly on the Event page. (See Woocommerce One-Page Checkout by Prospress)

                      This would also solve the request by several people to be able to skip the Cart page to go direct to Checkout, and might also resolve the issue of quantities being changed in the Cart or at Checkout.

                      If there were a dynamic panel right above the checkout form that summarized the custom data fields that would also potentially resolve the issue of making changes during checkout that are then not reflected in those fields .

                      There are a few…

                        - 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.

                          • Custom Email Fields Per Event with WYSIWYG Editor

                            We've always felt that one of the weaker aspects of Event Calendar Pro is its communication capabilities. We’re currently unable to customize email messaging for each unique event. Additionally, our clients are unable to customize the standard confirmation email on their own due to their limited technical capabilities.

                            It would be extremely advantageous if there were a series of WYSIWYG editors/fields for users to create custom confirmation email messages and custom admin notification messages for each specific event.

                            Features should also include:

                            -Ability for the admin to send custom ad-hoc emails using a WYSIWYG editor

                              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.

                              • Add limit="x" option to tribe_events shortcode

                                Adding a LIMIT argument to the tribe_events shortcode could work for Photo, List, Day, and Map views.

                                The shortcode option in Pro is great!
                                It would be even greater if there was an option to limit the shown events in the list.
                                Like: [tribe_events limit="10" view="photo"]

                                Than you would be able to show the Photo view for instance on the homepage only the first 3 events and on a calendar page all the events.

                                  Thank you for the idea! We definitely see the value in this. It has been added to our list of features we would like to implement. We thank you for your patience as we work through all of the other features that were added before this one.

                                  Eric from our forums shared an excellent snippet of code that allows you to alter this right now. As he notes it employs a bit of a hack, but it should work on most servers. You can paste this code in your functions.php, modify the number of events you want shown inside the code, and you’re done!

                                  If you have any questions or need assistance, please don’t hesitate to reach out via our forums. Cheers!

                                • We need a possibility to block some Categories for Community Organizers (with account or anonymous).

                                  By blocking a category for some organizers or anonymous submitter we would still have the possibility to create exclusive calendars which will only show the events created by the admin.
                                  I would love to see that as an option.

                                    • Check if importing from Facebook URL already

                                      I have added a URL in twice as Facebook schedule. I forgot I was importing from that Facebook page already.

                                      If it could check the main URL (excluding any attributes such as ?fref=pb&hc_location=profile_browser as an example ) or at least have a search box to filter imports by name it would clear up this slight issue.

                                      • unmarry featured events from stickied events (or at least provide that option)

                                        I make extensive use of the featured events option, but I really, really don't want those events stickied. I want them listed in chronological order, because I also run a lot of more regular events and the calendar is confusing to read when the events don't appear in order of start time. I can already do that by unchecking the "sticky in month view" option after it auto-checks, but the current CSS for the featured events option isn't very friendly to not being stickied. That's a relatively easy custom fix (which I've done), but it's still needlessly annoying to have…

                                        • Each ticket to have multiple ticket types & cost

                                          For example:

                                          Ticket for an event on a given day at a particular time
                                          Adult / $15
                                          Child / $7

                                          The only way to do this currently is to have several tickets for each type of ticket & time, meaning you could have a long list of tickets for users, confusing matters.
