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. 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.

  4. update the body class if the calendar is used as the homepage

    Right now, if the events calendar is set as the homepage, the body class tags do not contain a 'home' identifier. This means themes which rely on that tag to apply formatting only to the main page will not work.

    I'm not 100% sure that's the case, but it seems that wordpress relies on the first body tag being 'home' to detect if it's the homepage or not, and the calendar simply won't add that tag when I set it to the homepage.

  6. Conditional tag that returns true for any view related to Tribe's event plugins

    There are several conditional tags that check if certain views are being displayed like "tribeismonth()", "tribeisday()", "tribeismap()", "tribeisevent()", "tribeisvenue()" etc.

    But if you need to check if any of the event related views are displayed, you need to combine many of this checks in one huge functions.

    There are several examples available online that try to solve this (http://pastebin.com/c4yujaZC, https://gist.github.com/jo-snips/2415009, https://clicknathan.com/web-design/tribe-events-calendar-conditional-tag/ etc.) but they are incomplete (not covering all views) and "cumbersome" to use because every "tribeis..." functions should be wrapped with function_exists().

    I…

  7. edit single item in series

    Hi,

    Add a way to edit a single item in a recurring event, so that you can edit one date instead of changing all of them

  8. 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.

    We are planning to add this functionality when we have some open development resources to complete it. Thank you all for your patience!

    This snippet changes the “iCal Export” buttons to be webcal:// links, which suggests to calendar applications that they should subscribe instead of downloading the .ics file.

    It requires The Events Calendar version 4.6.5 or newer.

  9. Satellite view for Google maps

    Allow the map view to be set as either satellite or road map, instead of defaulting to road map.

  11. Resize pictures automatically and speed up pages

    The events calendar has options to show events in widgets and in the calendar. There it always uses the standard wordpress pictures and does not resize them. This is a problem for users, as they have to load a lot of data. It also reduces the page rank at Google.
    Therefore I want the plugin to resize the images automatically to save data and rank better in Google.

  12. 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.

  13. Event statistics report

    Our organization would like an easy way to compile event statistics for a specific time period (calendar year, for example). TEC doesn't include any such reporting functionality and I'm not aware of any 3rd party solutions to this other than using an SQL tool.

    Data that we would be interested in includes:


    • number of events in the time period

    • number of tickets sold in the time period

    • total revenue for the time period

    Thanks!

  14. Additional Fields Should Support Date Fields

    I would LOVE IT if additional fields supported dates and date ranges, and the filter bar would search in a date rage.

    For instance, our events have a registration open and close date, but we're not responsible for ticketing. To allow our users to see what events have opened recently would be huge. :)

  15. 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.

  16. Featured Image for Calendar Share

    Featured Image for Calendar Share

    If you want to share your calendar on Social Media (like LinkedIn or Facebook) those sites will automatically pick up an image to display whether you like it or not.

    At the moment there is no way to control that image in the Calendar settings. By default Facebook or Linkedin will just pick up the first available image from your website which in most cases, will have nothing to do with your Events Calendar.

    All Tribe need to do is add the option in settings to upload an image you want to display when you…

  17. Shortcode to display all Event Categories used

    I would love to see a shortcode that scrobbles all event categories used (with filter parameters built in, of course) in much the same way that Wordpress can scrobble all post categories by default in a sidebar widget. Also, some kind of automated Javascript that gives you the option (maybe in the settings or back-end) to specify which pages you'd like to display the event category widget on (i.e. all event-related pages, everything under /event and /events) would be awesome.

    I could definitely see the utility of this feature in other applications besides just a sidebar event categories widget, but…

  18. Allow x Number of Upcoming Recurring Events to Display

    It would be great to be able to show more than just only one upcoming event in a recurring series. Ideally this would be per recurring event series so you could customize it different for different recurring events. This would be helpful in situations where one recurring event dominates the calendar for the next few weeks, but you still want to be able to show more than just one.

  20. Allow Featured Events to Display at the Top of the Event List Widget

    The display from the Event List widget looks better when there is a Featured Event with image at the top. Therefore, I would like an option to show the next Featured Event (or two or three) at top, followed by the non-featured events.

    I can almost do this now by using two Event List widgets, one above the other. The top one can be set to "limit to featured events only." If the the bottom widget could be set to "limit to non-featured events," that would do the trick.
