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.

I suggest you ...

  1. Facebook Events: display attendees

    It would be great to see an additional section in the single event pages for Attendees.

    Additionnally, in this "Who Is Going" section, there would be two horizontal tabs : JonSmith Attendees (custom text) | Facebook attendees

    We could find the number of attendees between parenthesis right after the headers. The Facebook section would of course appear only if the event is linked to a Facebook event.

    Inspiration came from a competitor, Wantickets, see here the last section : http://www.wantickets.com/Events/ShowEvent.aspx?eventId=156513

    Cheers!

    • Add the ability for users to RSVP to Facebook events on my website's event pages

      I think it's key for the user to be able to RSVP to a corresponding event on Facebook. I know Events+ has this ability and believe Event Espresso does as well. It seems to be the only key feature you guys are missing.

      • Set default organizer

        it would be great if we could set an Organizer for each feed. This way I could aggregate calendars from several sources while crediting those sources.

        Thanks for your time!

        • Import "Get Tickets" link from Facebook event posts

          I purchased the Import Facebook events plug in and was shocked to find it doesn't import the "Get Tickets" link from the Facebook event, according to this forum.

          This is a major disappointment, IMHO. This function should be added or else the lack of this function should be disclosed in the plug in description. It defeats the purpose of this plug in.

          The whole idea of the plug in is to support automation and prevent duplicate data entry. Yet, I have to enter the link to buy tickets manually on my WP site for each event? Doesn't make any sense.

          • event aggregator categories & tags

            Now we can pick one category when using the aggregator, but in our calendar it's possible that a certain event belongs in more categories.
            This means I still have to do this manually to complete the event. Also I miss the option to activate tags. For this the same as with the categories it's handy when we could fill out more then one tag.

              • 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.

                • Import Google Calendar attached images as event image

                  I am quite surprised this feature has not been included in a prior iCal Importer update or the release of Event Aggregator.

                  Can Event Aggregator import the attached image in Google Calendar and use it as the event image for Wordpress? I know this can be done as some other platforms already do this.

                  I have hundreds of events on my calendar, and adding an image to every single one is not an option.

                  Thank you!

                  • Option to remove events not present in a reimported iCal feed

                    This option would allow for events that get deleted from an iCal feed to be automatically deleted from The Events Calendar as well. So if you are importing an .ics calendar from a different site, such as Google Calendar or Outlook 365, and you delete the event there it will be deleted from the The Events Calendar on the next import.

                    The iCal format is dedicated to event creation, and does not contain any data on events that have been deleted. However, with this option checked the iCal Importer could assume that any event no longer present in a given…

                      • allow for importing single facebook events in bulk

                        We used to be able to import a list of single facebook events. Now we have to go through 3 steps for each one. A pain if you have 20 events to import. The whole purpose of Aggregator is to make things easier, not harder than in previous versions.

                        • option to import every 4 hours

                          Option to import events every 4 hours. Daily isn't often enough and every hour is overkill.

                          • Prevent event aggregator from loading images when importing events

                            Prevent event aggregator from loading images when importing events from facebook !

                            It would be great if there is a choice if facebook images are imported or not. Because of the copyright law there are many situations where one would like to import the event but NOT the image!

                            At the moment the only possibility is to delete the images after the import by oneself. Depending on the import settings the images are imported again when imports from facebook are updated etc....

                            • Force a Run Import on several selected Scheduled Imports

                              Just like you can select several plugins to update, I would like to select several "Scheduled Imports" and force a "Run Import" on all of them at once. Since I'm often getting that red circle error saying last time of import is unknown, this would be a nice way to make sure the import has been run. And it would just be a useful option in general.

                                    Currently, when you import a facebook event url, you can only select ONE category choice. We then have to re-open the event after and select other categories. Its a huge waste of time. If you are doing multiple events, you ofter forget to go back and fix it later.

                                    • Set the publishing date for imported events

                                      I like to include some events in my main feed.

                                      If for example I import the fixtures for a sports season that overwhelms the main feed and fills it with events - rather than todays features and stories.

                                      We can chose where imported events end up: publish, draft, etc. Why can we not set the publish date as well?

                                      Either chose a publishing date when performing the import - today or a date in the past (or future).
                                      Or allow the publishing date to be edited in the bulk in draft mode - rather than have to open each event…

                                      • Facebook import images (both organiser thumb and event thumbs)

                                        Would be great to get related images from the facebook import.

                                        Would also be great to grab the event and organisers banner images as well as their thumbails if possible...

                                        That way when you go to event organiser the banner could be displayed as their picture, and in search thumbnail it could use their thumbnail images (profile images of org and event)

                                        • Mark import as featured

                                          It would be great if imports could be marked as featured so that all events from that source get featured tag rather than having to go in and manually mark them.
