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. Charge for event submission and premium/featured events

    Develop a package pricing option where users could add a free event or premium event listing. Also allow for a membership option where event promoters could pay a flat monthly / annual fee and enter as many premium events as they would like.

    • Let Users Import their Facebook Events into Community Events

      It would be cool if users submitting events through Community Events could input a Facebook URL and we import the rest with our Facebook Events plugin.

        Thank you for the suggestion! This is something we are very interested in.

        With Event Aggregator we released a unified interface for importing an event from Facebook, Eventbrite, and Meetup. Are any of you interested in allowing community import from these other services?

        In the mean time checkout @Anselm’s great customization that provides this capability.

        Cheers!

      • Community Events: Notify Event Creator When Event Is Published

        First, collect the email address of the event creator. It would be great to add these people to our list. Second, send a notification to the event creator when it is posted. It might bring them back to the site again later.

            • Shared media library for community events submissions

              On many websites most of the events are being created by users.
              They upload the events and an according image via the Event Submit page:
              http://www.domain.com/events/community/add

              Unfortunately this unneccessarily blows up the media library with the same images (10 events of one band = 10 equal images in the media library).

              It would be great to let the user select his own (security!) images via the media manager.

              Here are two links with code snipplets that is maybe a good start to implement this:

              Restricting access to only images that have been uploaded by the user:

              • Allow file upload for pdfs

                Currently community events limits file upload to images. An additional pdf upload would be handy.

                • Event Organizer - Terms and conditions

                  Every Organizer should have an option to state Terms & Conditions for their Events. The user which will buy event must agree with Organizers Terms & Conditions in order to buy and attend in event

                  Terms and conditions should also be in Organizer page.

                  • Enabling Tags in Community Events

                    Tags are now used in The Events Calender Pro and the Filter Bar bad sadly not in the Community Events.

                    It would be great if user could submit new events including tags in two ways: either an input field with autocomplete (like in the WP-Backend) or checkboxes so that the admin can add new tags but community-events users can only select them.

                    • Community Events: Limit image upload size.

                      I suggets you limit the upload size of images for the Community Events plugin. As non-registered users can enter events, they may not be aware of the importance of keeping image sizes small for websites. Ideally the uploads could be limited to say 200K, but I guess maybe it could be an adjustable value which the webdesigner could set in the settings for the plugin. I hoe you like this idea, it would be really helpful and save a lot of work for the admin.

                      • Community Events - Native Image/File Uploader on Submit Form

                        Currently the submission form uses a default file upload but it seems it would be great if it used the default wordpres image/file uploader for usability and faster submission.

                            • Approved events that are edited should revert to Pending/Draft instead of Published.

                              When a user submits an event to the Community Events form, the event goes into Pending/Draft as I have set in the admin panel. However, if a user goes back to edit an Approved/Published event, it should also automatically get withdrawn from the site and submitted for approval.

                                  This is certainly a cool idea Thom. It would represent a huge investment though. Considering users can already easily approve entries via their website interface from mobile devies, we definitely would need to see huge demand for this before we could build such a feature. We will keep an eye on the votes here.

                                • Pro Additional Fields configurable as public/private for Community Events

                                  Event Calendar Pro lets me add additional fields - all of which show up on the Community Events edit screen. It would be good to have an option to customize which are private (admin only and not viewable via the my events screen) and which are public. Probably has an impact on template function calls as well.

                                    Hello it seems when a user's submitted event is approved by admin, they do not receive the email..

                                    "Event approved by admin on <date>"

                                    Why have you not implemented this? It seems only admin receives email notification. The user should receive email notification if his/her event is approved (published) by admin.

                                    Please advise if your'e implementing this?

                                    • Enable latitude longitude for the community events front end submission form.

                                      We have a lot of events that don’t have a proper address, and I’d like to offer them the option to enter those in if they know them. Even better to offer a link to a tool to find them out. These fields are available in the backend for events, so I don’t know why it shouldn’t be for the front end. I feel like there should just an option to click on from the settings, rather than having to create a customized version of the front end template.

                                        I would love a feature that will inform (via email) all users who have events submitted in the calendar for a particular day and time when a new event is submitted that conflicts. The email could just say that someone has submitted an event that occurs at the date and time of your event and provide them with a link to see it.

                                          Shared Event Management

                                          Now that we can have multiple Organizers attached to an event, it would be nice if event editing ability could be shared among multiple submitters, either as something that could be assigned via the administrative backend, or through a "share" option that the event submitter could use, similar to the share features for Google Docs. (Submitter #1 sends an invite to member #2).
