My users have requested a feature to allow them to see recently posted events - very useful for those who check the calendar regularly.26 votes
We’ve written a snippet that allows you to customize the list widget to show recently added events. Check it out: http://m.tri.be/uc
Maybe you could see a window with a list of all the events, and check which ones to add to the blog, or you could choose an event category whose events would show on the blog.30 votes
Ability to add code to a slider to display one event per slide. The code syntax would contain the first, second, third, etc event to be displayed. A slide template would be available for customization. Expired events would not be displayed. Provide an alternate default slide in the case where there are no upcoming events.54 votes
Some users have successfully made events sliders by using a third party plugin. You’ll need a slider plugin that can pull Custom Post Types.
Update: We now have a how-to for Slider Revolution and Essential Grid at https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/integrating-events-calendar-slider-revolution-essential-grid/
Currently we can use /Events or /Calendar as the root level or slug. I propose having the ability to use /Football/Schedule or /Parents/Calendar13 votes
Add an option for these custom posts (each event) for social sharing (FB, twitter, etc. etc.) which will allow visitors to share directly a particular event from the event page.38 votes
Thank you very much for sharing this idea! For those interested there are plenty of third party options for sharing your events on social media, check out our article: http://m.tri.be/w7
I would love if the calendar was one page layout (in my case full width) and an event page a different one (in my case with a sidebar). The calendar needs lots of room so it makes it sense to display it full width but for an event page I would like to show ads and other content in a sidebar.63 votes
At the moment, you have the option to select a default view for the main shop page, but the category pages default to a list view regardless of what you have selected for the shop page. I'd like to see the ability to select the default view for both the shop page and the category pages, but in the absence of this, I would think it would be better for the category pages default to be the same as what was selected for the main shop page.3 votes
We have a tutorial that will help you accomplish this: http://tri.be/support/documentation/display-categories-in-list-view/
I would love to see a simple or summary view of events. Just a list showing each event on one line with date, event name, organiser, and venue (and maybe a category): Eg:
06 - Tuesday Track at DISC - Brunswick Cycling Club - DISC
07 - The Loop Criterium - Eastern Veterans Cycling Club - Yarra Boulevard
We’ve started design and strategy around this, but requires some backend development changes before we’ll be able to implement it. We’ll keep you posted!
In v2.0 of TEC PRO, all additional fields are associated with events only; it does not change what data is collected or stored for organizers or venues. It therefore is not possible to, say, assign a URL to a venue. Being able to define additional fields specifically for venues and organizers would be useful.96 votes
Hot off the presses, we’ve got a tutorial to help you do custom fields for Venues and Organizers! Check it out: http://m.tri.be/18ed
Id like to be able to move where the field appears in the backend instead of the newest item always being last.
For example I had a client ask me to add times to the opening acts. There were already 3 opening acts set up within the calendar with different atributes for each.
Since each new time atribute matched with an opening artist I made sense to group it with that artist like the rest of the atributes, not have all the times at the end of the list so I had to re-input all the opening acts.27 votes
The majority of our events run from 09:30-10:00. It would be really helpful if I could set a default start and end time within the events calendar settings defaults tab. That way I wouldn't have to edit those fields every event, as none of ours run from 09:00am - 5:00pm.115 votes

Please provide a space in Dashboard where we can put alternative words for 'Event' and 'Events' so that people can use 'Tour' and 'Tours' or 'Party' and 'Parties' or whatever they need. Not everything is an event.126 votes
We now have a tutorial walking you through how to do exactly this!
Thanks for the feedback!
Hook into the WordPress JetPack Publicize plugin or to WP-to-Twitter plugin to tweet event posts when they are published. This should hook to the WP Shortlinks feature (wp.me) or to Twitter's shortener (t.co) so links can easily be included in the tweet.34 votes
