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 more filters to shortcode [tribe_events]

    Add more filters and options to the [tribe_events] shortcode so that it can be customized more.

    • allow user to save/star events

      Allow users to save, star or favourite events. So they can plan which events they would like to attend. This would be a huge value-add to the end user where there are a lot of events to choose from and they may want to attend a few.

      • 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.

          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.

          • have an option for setting defaults for the meta fields. Such as defaulting to "All Day Event"

            It would be great if the Event Settings included options to set defaults. I'd love to be able to default new events to ALL DAY, rather than having to check that box every time.

            • 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!

              • TEC & TECPro Versioning

                The versions numbers have slipped so far apart that it is difficult to pair up the two.

                I suggest that the version follow each other through every update, even if one or the other is not updated. In the release notes, you could add a note that states "This release is only a version number update." when nothing is changed.

                • Add unique classes to each month title in span.tribe-events-list-separator-month

                  I’m using JS to add the name of the month as a class to the span.tribe-events-list-separator-month

                  The goal is to use custom graphics for the month headings instead of text. The JS I’m using is not very foolproof, and only fires when the page is finished loading. I had to hide the “next/prev events” buttons, because they reload the page with ajax, so my JS doesn’t get triggered, and the month headings then “disappear”.

                  If that span had a class with the month name or month number in it already, I wouldn’t need the JS, and it would work perfectly.

                  • Please add common timezone abbreviations

                    It's great that time zones are supported, and that a lot of major cities are included - unfortunately there are loads that aren't.

                    When adding international events, it's a major hassle to have to look up the UTC offset for those frequent occurrences where a city isn't there.

                    Thankfully, it's an easy fix that'll make things much easier:

                    Simply include common time zones such as EST, PDT, CET etc in the time zone selector - this will VASTLY speed up adding international events.

                      • Adding Apple Maps/MapKit to Events Calendar

                        Apple recently announced MapKit for the web. Maybe offer that as an option in case people are hitting the API limits for Google Maps.

                        So far it seems that Apple Maps offers way more API hits per day then Google Maps?

                        • Sort events in API

                          The sorting is lost if there any filtering params for /events API endpoint. Ex: https://wpshindig.com/wp-json/tribe/events/v1/events?start_date=2018-01-01+00:00:00 it starts with the events in Jan, even if there are events for Jun/Jul

                          Here's a example which the API doesn’t support now:
                          – show events between May 1, 2018 – May 31, 2018 sorted from newest to oldest. A parameters like order=desc would fix this

                          There are more details in this thread https://wordpress.org/support/topic/sort-events-in-api

                          • 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. :)

                              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…

                                Greetings,
                                I am writing this to give you a suggestion to develop an Android and iOS app for your Event Plugin. I am a freelancer an often use this plugin for my clients as I love it. Unfortunately, Many Clients do not want to login to their dashboard to add an event. They often say if there is any way to add events from mobile phone or if they can add an event on Google Calendar, it should be added on Website Events page too on auto. So I face such feedback. Today I thought to give you a suggestion…

                                • Add option to reorder zip and city for certain countries

                                  In quite a few european countries, the usual (and also "correct" in terms of what postal services expect on an envelope) way to write addresses is like this:

                                  Venue Name
                                  Street 23
                                  12345 City
                                  Country

                                  While the notation of street and number ("123, Park Avenue" vs. "Hauptstraße 17") isn’t an issue (since it’s only one field in the database), addresses like "Berlin, 12345 Deutschland" (instead of the correct "12345 Berlin, Deutschland" are quite disturbing.

                                  I am aware that src/views/modules/address.php could be customized by the user, but I would strongly suggest to add an option to reorder zip and city. This…

                                    Can you make the details of the events show on the main page when they click the specific event date on the widget?

                                    Listing all the events on the main page and when they click the date on the widget it will show the complete information of the event.

                                    I do not want the whole calendar on the main page, instead just do a listing, and then when someone clicks the date on the widget, it will show the details.

                                    I have you understand what I'm trying to explain.

                                    Thanks
