Feature Ideas

Howdy. In our adventures to create tools that help you kick ass, we could use some advice. What are you looking for that would make you more successful? What features do you want to see? What should we build next?

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?

Before posting your idea, please look to see if someone else has suggested it, or something very similar. That will help us better understand what features are the most widely asked for, and address those requests most efficiently.

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

I suggest you ...

  1. RSVP > Additional fields

    Hi there
    I would love to be able to add some additional Fields for RSVP. I would love to have Names seperated (surname/prename), also some physical address information and contact details (telephone additional to email)

    https://theeventscalendar.com/support/forums/topic/rsvp-additional-fields/#post-1045383

    Thanks for your work. Hopefully this gets builded asap :)

      Thank you for the suggestion!

      One of the upcoming features for Event Tickets Plus is Attendee Meta Fields. This will allow you to add custom fields for attendees to fill out. This will soon be released as a beta, and you can signup for that beta here: https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/signup-for-beta-access/

      From the sound of it the above feature and beta will cover this feature request, as well as the separate one to add additional fields to tickets. We will leave this feature request open until that feature has been launched, so that we can collect your feedback. If It does not quite cover what you are looking for please let us know.

      Cheers!

    • Recurrence > Add a single date to recurrence series

      While we you add multiple recurrence patterns (such as every 1st monday) sometimes you just have a single date that you want to add. Perhaps one that does not conform to any pattern.

      This request would add a new option when selecting recurrences that allows you to add just individual dates to the series of events, in addition to the recurrence pattern(s) you have selected.

      • Allow manual entry of attendee information

        I'd like to be able to go into the backend and manually add an attendee to the list.

        • Develop an Android and iOS App for QR Code Scanning Check-In

          Build or support a third party app that can be used by the event venue to check-in attendees similar to Eventbrite Entry Manager https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.eventbrite.organizer

          Something easy, handheld and mobile for ticket takers to use across several windows with most all the same features of Eventbrite... Maybe it's as easy as contacting the same developer and changing the data source to connect to WordPress...???

          • Warning when a QR-code check in is used twice or multiple times. To avoid people passing their tickets.

            scanning QR-codes doesn't give a warning when a ticket has already been used to check in. I don't find a way to limit this to only 1 check in (?)
            That would be handy, so people can't pass the qr-code to others. Their will always be people trying that :-)

            • Reminder Emails for X Days Before Event

              Email Attendees of an event automatically with event details X days before event takes place. It would be great if this was a variable number of days.

              • Force minimum number of tickets purchased

                Offer a reduced ticket price for buying X or more, and force the quantity of that ticket to start at X.

                We sell reduced price tickets for groups of 3 or more, but the quantity on the product page always starts at 1, which allows anyone to buy only one ticket at the lower price. Currently we have to say, "Contact us for 3 or more" and process these sales manually.

                Eventbrite does this beautifully, but we're trying to get away from the extra fees.

                Thanks!

                  • Integrate recurring events with WPML

                    The Events Calendar is integrated with WPML, however recurring events are not fully functioning with WPML. It would be great to have that implemented.

                    • Google Calendar Sync using Calendar ID + API

                      I'm aware of the iCal importer, but all that really does is import and it sounds more like a workaround. I'm also not asking for iCal subscriptions or w/e everyone else is writing about. I'd like TEC and Google Calendar to be 1 and the same, only that TEC is responsive on our site. The administration is already used to updating google calendar. TEC would be perfect if it had this. I've found a plugin that does what I'm talking about https://wordpress.org/plugins/google-calendar-events/ but it's honestly not as flushed out as TEC(especially in terms of responsiveness). It uses the calendar ID…

                        Or the possibility to add instructors to an event who are notified that an event is created

                        • Delete Past Events

                          We run a regional events site, adding over 1,000 events per month. Currently we have to manually delete old events. It would be useful if we had the option to delete past events automatically, perhaps 24 hours after their end date.

                          • Connect organizers to users

                            It would be great if the Organizer could be a registered user with certain role attribute for that user. For example is a user is an author a drop down list of all the users (who are authors) could be linked as the organizer for an event(s).
                            This feature could also be very useful in the community events form. The logged in user should be the default organizer. The Admin can determine whether this can be changed or not depending on restrictions that the admin can set.
                            Would love to see this feature!

                                I believe the logic is already in place to import the event data from event id using the administrator's fb auth session.. so frontend submission should have a field where users can submit an event id or url, which imports event data in the back-end when approved

                                  You don't always want your recurring events to be treated under the same blankets. Ex.: having a workshop that recurs weekly vs. a performance that only happens 2 nights. Recurring "small" events like classes or workshops can dominate your event calendar VERY quickly.

                                      I think it would be a nicer experience for the user of the calendar to view the events in calendar and list/day view like this:

                                      -sticky events first (maybe have a border added)
                                      -order by hour only - not date!

                                      Now the problem is that events that take longer (like the whole month), always appear on top of everything, and it becomes a bit annoying for the user.

                                        I'm sure everyone agrees that reCAPTCHA is one of the most irritating technologies on the web. No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA has recently begun trending online and is already in use by the WordPress community.

                                        • Allow ics export for entire calendar year

                                          We publish an annual planning calendar and would like to duplicate it online. It would be really helpful if there were a way for our users to export a calendar year's worth of events at a time. Or better, a way to specify a date-range for exporting. I realize that a large date-range (perhaps even a year) would create a lot of entries, but for planning purposes, that's what users require. Asking them to export month-by-month seems a little cumbersome.
