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

  1. Set default organizer per import feed

    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!

  2. Allow RSS feeds into the events calendar

    It would be great if the events calendar accepted RSS feeds from other sources.

  4. API to create new scheduled imports

    Provide an API for creating new scheduled imports to be executed in Event Aggregator. We need to import thousands of automated import sources to aggregate from on various schedules. An API should enable us to extend the plugin to allow importing these scheduled imports from an external data source. We would like the ability to provide all the information required for creating a scheduled import in a single object or array.

  5. Include [View-Event] link in notification of newly imported event

    When a new event is imported a notification is given which includes a link to any new venue or new organizer. However the new event itself is not linked.

    The new event listing is likely to be the view that one is most likely to want to look at to see if it has rendered correctly, or to edit some personal content to the event.

    It could be a simple fix to add [View your event listing] to the notification.

    This is what is currently shown:

    Import complete!
    1 new event was imported. 1 new image was imported.
    1 new…

  6. Add ability to import multiple iCal files simultaneously

    Currently in Event Aggregator, the iCal import is a one-by-one process. Select an iCal file, import it. Select next iCal file, import it. Etc.

    If I could select and upload multiple iCal files at once and process them simultaneously it would make a tedious process much quicker.

    Also, if you could auto-delete the iCal files from the WP Media section it would be appreciated. These files are not likely to be used as content as any page/post. Better yet, would be to upload them in some other fashion so they don't end up in the WP Media section at all.

  7. Allow import from Wild Apricot

    We import events for a couple of organizations that are using Wild Apricot (https://www.wildapricot.com). Since Wild Apricot isn't support by EA, we import the events via ics file.

    If EA supported automated event import for Wild Apricot it would certainly make updating events much easier.

    Thanks!

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. Integration with EventFul

    Hello - new user of the plugin here. We are a large community of activists and bring together a number of events - so far Evenbrite plugin has been amazing.

    I wonder if it would be possible to import from Eventful? They have a great accessible API and the monitor the fair use of this: http://api.eventful.com

    The API is quite extensive. But in particular I'd like to search by keyword, location and venue.

    Thanks!
