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. 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.

    • Multiple day events with 1 day, 2 das or more days variation of ticket

      I organize event where i have:
      - 1 day tickets for 5€ (for example Friday ticket)
      - free tickets for children (Friday ticket)
      - Saturday ticket for 5€
      - Saturday ticket for children for free
      - 2 days ticket for 8€ (Friday + Saturday)
      - same for children...

      So, how i should or is it possible to set the space that it will calculate right numbers of free places?
      So if there are 100 places and I sell 1 ticket for Friday, there will be 99 tickets for Friday (paid or free for kids) and 100 tickets for Saturday. And…

      • You should add pay to submit event.

        Some magazines charge to post events. If this connected with woo commerce or something payment gateway we can charge for people to post their events.

        • Allow different images for recurring events

          It would be great if recurring events could have different images set for them, for example being able to set a different image for a different date range to create some variety. Or to allow for a slider or rotating set of images to create variety. We have some ongoing classes that occur several times a week and when they all have the same image and there aren't other events to break up the look it starts to get a little ridiculous looking in the list view. I realize for event recognition this may not be optimal for some recurring…

          • 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.

              • Add 'Series starts on' field for recurring Event Series

                Irregular recurring events cannot be added (easily) using the current Event Series tabs (Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly, Once).

                For example, my events may occur every weekend and also every day during each school holiday period. Using the current Event Series tabs, I cannot programme this without an additional feature…

                How about for each Event Series rule, adding a 'Series starts on' feature to match the existing 'Series ends on' field? This would allow one rule to manage the infinitely weekend series, then another rule to manage irregular sessions such as the school holiday period.

                E.g.
                Rule 1: Event Series >…

                • Add "venue" parameter for [tribe_events] shortcode

                  I'm looking to display the full month calendar view for a venue, whereby I can then use the tribe_events shortcode to display a calendar on each venue page on my site (think business listing site).

                  As per this thread, this is not currently possible with tribe_events. It was suggested I use the Venus feature and tribe_featured_venue shortcode, but that a) doesn't allow for full month view and b) duplicates functionality of my listing theme.

                  https://theeventscalendar.com/support/forums/topic/can-a-shortcode-display-a-venues-events-month-view/#post-1418805

                  The workaround for the moment is to create yet another level of categories for each "venue" and use the tribe_events shortcode to display the month…

                  • Fix the Title column width on Events

                    The width on the Event title column is way too small. My title ends up wrapping and making each letter be on a new line.

                      • Private event

                        Saw some discussion for private calendar. Would be great to have private events for logged in members without needing to add a patch. For example, set the event to published as private which would then be viewable by members only.

                        Perhaps this is already a feature?

                        • Please list recurring events only once in list

                          My events list is dominated by a few recurring events and I have to scroll through mnay future years of individual recurrences before I get to my current events. Can't recurring events be summarized in the events list as a single item? This would be much more convenient.

                          Thank you very much for your help.

                            I would like the option to replace the calendar download text with something other than the event description. For instance, include just the parking, arrival, logistics info, instead of the full event description.

                              • Reusable Event Template

                                In addition to being able to define a "ticket template" as described in another feature idea (https://tribe.uservoice.com/forums/195723-feature-ideas/suggestions/3825421-reusable-ticket-defaults-profiles-as-per-venues-a), I would suggest that this same functionality be extended to events themselves as well as tickets.

                                We currently use the Advanced Content Templates plugin (https://www.advancedcontenttemplates.com) for this purpose but it is limited. For example, Advanced Content Templates can't:

                                - insert the event category/categories
                                - insert the event tag(s)
                                - insert pre-defined a ticket(s)

                                Having a templating system for events and tickets would be a real time-saver for those who hold the same or similar events multiple times.

                                Thanks!

                                    The events calendar on my website started to show 404 page. I tried several things to resolve this, nothing worked. I found out that in my case the event calendar needs events in the future to appear on the website.

                                    Please, make it possible to show the event calendar on the website, even though there are no future 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?

                                      • recurring events same month next year

                                        a large number of the events I list occur every year, but the dates change since they are generally on the weekends, or a Saturday or Sunday, but generally the same month. How about giving an option for same month yearly - not specifiy it's the same date - as it's never the same date as weekend dates change annually. Then have a reminder to update that event several months before, as many aren't even announced until later, rarely a year earlier.
