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. 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.

          • Set Time of Import

            Include the option to set when the daily, weekly..., are actually imported.

            Then you can grab and import events at a preferred time during the day. Early morning and review each day, end of day to grab all new entries, etc.

            • 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!

                • 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.

                          Hello,
                          This is partially possible. Go to the month view of the calendar you want to import. Go to the bottom and copy the target link from the “Export the month’s events” button.
                          Should be something like this:
                          http://domain.com/events/?ical=1&tribe_display=month

                          On the site where you want to import go to import > iCalendar, and paste in the url. For start date select what you need. Hit preview and you’ll see the events. Now you just need to select the ones you need and import them.

                          Hope this helps!

                        • 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.

                          • 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…

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

                                  • Allow for multiple selection criteria for importing FB events

                                    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.

                                      If the site from which I import events is in a different time zone, I cannot currently reset those events to be in my timezone when they are imported. Might it be possible to have a field on the import (like category but to alter rather than add) for time zone? At the moment, events from this source are coming in with weird dates. I cna see this is because they are all "all day" events which gets confused when the time zone is different and is changing the event to be spread over two days instead of the original…

                                      • Aggregator : Import Filter by 1 or more countries

                                        It would be great if you could filter facebook events by country.

                                        Aka if I only want events located in Australia, or Australia and New Zealand to import from facebook.

                                        Would be happy for it to be one country, but multiple shouldn't be too much more work code wise and would make people super happy! ;-)

                                        • 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....
