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. Add true Subscribe Functionality for iCal & Google

    Downloading an iCal file is NOT THE SAME as a true subscribe to calendar function where users calendars are updated automatically with new events, changes to events and so forth. It's a total disappointment to find out that the other suggestion was closed when it the suggested feature was clearly not implemented. Having a static download is actually worse because users think they've subscribed and never get updates and have no reason to believe that they aren't getting the latest info.

    • Add links to the top of the calendar for previous/next months

      My background is in usability (I have a degree in Human Factors Psychology). One of the things that I was surprised not see in the calendar view was a set of links at the TOP of the calendar for previous/next months. I see them now at the bottom, but as a user looking to go to the next month, and with the bottom of the calendar cut off on my screen, I was confused for a bit when trying to figure out how to get to the next month.

      It would be fine to have the links at the bottom,…

      • Related Events Snippet on Event Page

        On every events page there should be a section where you could scroll through the rest of the events without leaving the page, and you should be able to scroll through them like in rotation mode with left and right arrows.

          • Each Day Needs it's Own Hours

            When I create a venue, it assumes that M-F hours are the same, but we are always open late on Fridays. I have one venue that is closed on Tuesdays. We need each day to have it's own hours.

            • Add JSON+LD to [tribe_events] shortcode

              Suggestion to add JSON+LD to the [tribe_events] shortcode. While a snippet has been created to achieve this, it would be nice to see it integrated into the core pro files.

              • Search

                Improve the search function, especially in month view, so that users can search for future events not in the current month - seems like a very basic feature to me but it seems the only way to do this is to purchase the Filter Bar.... you then have 2 search options which is confusing. A proper search feature should be a standard part of Events Cal Pro please

                • Schedule auto-post to social media

                  Create a way to schedule auto posts to social media for upcoming events. This would reduce a lot of social media labor and strengthen the marketing of events.

                  • password

                    Hi there. It would be nice to be able to password protect the events page. Alternatively, perhaps make the events page show up in the admin so we can add WP password functionality to it.

                    • Same filters for [tribe_events] as for [tribe_mini_calendar]

                      For [tribe_mini_calendar] shortcode we have a host of filter options such as city, ZIP, tag, category, etc. but for the [tribe_events] shortcode we only have category, featured, and date. It would be great to see all the other filter options on the [tribe_events] shortcode, as well

                        • Rotating Events

                          It would be good to have like 3 or 4 visible events with the ability to scroll right or left to get to the next 3 or 4. Like have a left and right arrow to rotate through the next series of events.

                          • Display simultaneous events in Week View without overlap

                            Currently, simultaneous events in the Week View display by default as overlapping bubbles.

                            This obscures the title and other information which users need to decide if they want to learn more by hovering or clicking.

                            The Month View currently handles this situation well by stacking the events.

                            Why not make the Week View handle it the same way?

                                Add support for parent/child relationship between individual events.

                                Two potential use cases found in the support forums.

                                Case 1:

                                Create events with individual sessions. The parent event might be a conference or an all-day meeting, and the child events would be individual sessions within that parent event.

                                This would allow users to RSVP to the parent event and individual event sessions.

                                Case 2:

                                Create events with individual sub-events. The parent event might be an international seminar and the sub-events would be national level seminars. Those may have sub-events at the local or state level.

                                This would allow users to identify…

                                  • Make the calendar export feature able to be used on a single event

                                    It looks as though the export feature is for all events, not single events. Users will never want to export all events onto their calendar, they're likely interested in a single event and want to export that.

                                    Is there currently the ability to export a single event? It doesn't look like it based on this article below:

                                      • +Export Events button on category page to export category events only

                                        At the moment, the +Export Events button on a category page adds every single event (on the whole calendar) to your diary (which is a disaster). Would be great if the +Export Events button on category pages only exported the events listed in that category.
