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. 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.

      • Enhance Security...

        It is possible for users to delete global Event Categories. This is a security issue. Please provide the ability to lock this down.

        • 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 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,…

            • custom coloring for shortcode tribe_events_list

              Be able to change the colors on the tribe_events_list shortcode date graphic and event title without having to use custom CSS or other coding. Or provide a support answer for this issue with the CSS required so that we can easily grab, modify and paste into our website custom CSS.

              • Add featured image to Events widget

                We have the ability to choose lots of different data to display or hide... all except image. I really want to show my next three events with images and details below instead of the clunky calendar graphic with the date. it just doesn't look good.

                • Show The Events Calendar link - configure to "open in new tab" rather than replacing the

                  Would like to include the "Powered by Events Calendar Pro" link on my client's calendars (to share the love and tell the world how awesome the plugin is) however, the link needs to open in a new tab rather than replace my clients calendar page. A simple mark-up is all that is needed.

                    • Fix the Swagger.io docs

                      The Swagger.io import fails with about 50'sh errors. It is a great idea since it helps us export clients, etc. When it has so many errors it is less useful, though.

                      Some errors include simple adjustments like "type: int" vs "type: integer".

                      Keep up the great work.

                      • 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

                        • Add a Search Bar to a single event page

                          How about adding the search bar to a single event page. When I am on a single event page the only thing takes me back to the main calendar is the link at the top that reads, "All Events". I run a state-wide event calendar and it would be great to keep people on the site. If they don't find what they are looking for on that single event maybe they would search for others if the search feature was on that event. Most people look for a search and they may not go back to the All Events page.

                          • ICS feed stats

                            We should be able to track the number of subscribers to a given ICS feed link.

                            I know that this will be inaccurate, as Google only fetches once for all the Google account subscribers, but as long as we can see the following details, we can have a rough estimate/idea of the feed usage (especially with ETAG and Cookie IDs):
                            1) IP Address with IP2location
                            2) HTTP Header: Request context; including From, User Agent, Host & etc...
                            3) HTTP Header: Response context; Allow, Server
                            4) HTTP Header: Date with User's timezone
                            5) HTTP Header: Proxies

                            • Custom ICS Feed URL (permalink)

                              We should be able to make custom permalinks for ICS feeds, so, instead of:
                              http://wpshindig.com/events/map/?action=tribe_geosearch&tribe_paged=1&tribe_event_display=map&featured=false&tribe-bar-geoloc-lat=51.5073509&tribe-bar-geoloc-lng=-0.12775829999998223&tribe-bar-geoloc=London&ical=1&tribe_display=map

                              We should be able to specify .ICS export links for certain custom filter, like:
                              http://wpshindig.com/eventsfeeds/yearlylondonevents.ics

                              This is a much nicer link and easier to distribute in posters and QR codes.

                              • add a default to filter in one category for calendar then give users the option to filer more in

                                We have so many events on the calendar that visually it is too much with all of them on there. I would like a default setting that brings up just featured events first and then the user would "add in" more events to the calendar based of of the categories the user chooses to add.

                                  Would it be a good idea to add a column with the field names in the backend for the additional fields?

                                  I collect some of my data from a database in which there are some of the same field identifiers for the organizer and venue. In order to be able to differentiate you with the assignment, I would like to give these identifiers a different title than that in the frontend appears

                                    It would be very helpful to be able to use HTML markup and styling in text Additional Fields. I wanted to enter a set of links as a styled list, the result was a string of comma-separated links.

                                      Display events automatically in web visitor's timezone

                                      Currently, the options allow you to use your WordPress timezone OR local timezones for each event. None of these options will automatically update the date and time of your event based on the user's local timezone.

                                      • Events categories and events dates in the permalink structure

                                        For a better SEO friendly URL structure I suggest the customization of the permalink structure including the category for the single event and maybe the date of th event too.
