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. Make exporting reports better with fees, payment gateway by event

    Hey,

    It would be nice to be able to export an event with all the details:

    Tickets Type Sold, Quantity, Ticket Face Value, Fees, Additional Fees, Payment Gateway

    This way getting all that information doesn't require 4 different exports and saves time when responding to your organizers.

    Can we make this happen?

    Cheers

    Jo

    • Allow users to request Attendee Information using Community form (front end)

      Being able to request Additional Attendee Information is a fantastic feature we can use when creating a ticket.

      However as it stands only the admin can use this. My users who submit their events and request tickets on the front end have no way to use this feature.

      They have to contact me and I have to manually add it for them. Very time consuming and not practical for a large site.

      Request > Can this functionality be added to the community submission form on the front end.

      • Certificate of Complettion

        As a professional association, we would like to provide a PDF certificate to attendees with the event name and person's name in the certificate, along with the number of CPE hours the event qualifies for. This certificate should be made available in a member area specific to the user, or emailed to the registered user, but only upon check-in. This would be tremendously helpful. Thank you.

        • different fees for different organizers

          Hey guys! Vote on this feature that would allow you to choose different fees for different organizers.

          For example, on events over 500 tickets, our fees are 4.9%+ $3. But for small events it would be 3.9% +$1

          Let's make this happen!

          • Add an escrow account function tied to the "enable split payments" function

            Because my website is a marketplace platform, what concerns me is rather the situation where someone “fake” an ad (of a product or an activity) in order to get some money without actually delivering – so I was wondering: whether there could be a function like an escrow account associated with split payments function, where the website admin collects all the payments at the first place then releases the proportional payments only after the real product or activity is confirmed to have been delivered. That would also solve the potential problems such as cancellation and refunds, which are listed as…

              This is a great concept, but I’m unsure about the legality and technical feasibility if an event is far in the future, such as more than 30 days. Other users, please add your votes here if interested in this feature. And feel free to share your comments about the far-future concerns if you have any expertise or opinions about that.
              Thank you!

            • Add Stripe to Community Tickets

              At the minute community members can sell tickets to their events using paypal. It would be awesome if they could do so and receive payment through Stripe Connect.

              • Community Tickets QR Code Checkin

                Seems like community tickets got forgotten on the whole QR Code checkin feature. When you run a community oriented site, facilitating everyone else's events, it would make sense that the organizers (community users) would check-in their attendees, not the wordpress administrators.

                Please add interface to Community Events/Tickets that allows the community users to checkin their own attendees at their own events.

                Please consider doing this in this fashion:
                1) Community user logs in and views event list
                2) Clicks on event action button for "Checkin QR Code"
                3) Web page displays a special qr code that can be scanned to…

                • Add support for EDD

                  Hoping at some point support for EDD is added so we can use the great functionality of Community Tickets with EDD.

                  • Export CSV, Email, and Print functionality for Order Sales Report

                    Similar to the Attendees Report, Organizers can Print, Email and Export a csv of all Attendees. Would be great to add that same functionality on the front end for the Order Sales report so that Organizers could pull that info as needed.

                    • Charge Flat Fee Per Ticket Sold

                      In the current version, the admin can collect a percentage of every ticket sold or a flat fee per event purchase (e.g., a single $2 fee to buy any number of tickets for a single event). Please add your votes if you would prefer to be able to charge a flat fee per ticket sold.
