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.

I suggest you ...

  1. Post Calendar Events to Facebook

    I would like to see the plugin go from Event Cal to FB, not FB to Event Cal.

    • Band Management

      A major advantage of the events calendar plugin is the ability to reuse items like venue or organizers as this reduces the time to add events. The acceptance of an events calendar by the users increases a lot.

      Therefore a function to add and reuse the data of a band would be great. Here are some ideas how this could look

        Hello all,

        We do not have a specific update on this, however, we just wanted to make sure that everybody has the latest relevant information available.

        1) Earlier this year, we have acquired Gigpress: http://gigpress.com/ and we have provided some basic integration with the Events Calendar

        2) Although not officially supported, many of our customers have successfully integrated such fields via the Advanced Custom Fields plugin

        Cheers and keep the votes coming!

      • Private/Members Only Calendar

        I would like the ability to hide the calendar (and subsequently any events, venues and organisers) from logged out users.

        I recently came upon a situation when a site owner asked me to hide the calender unless the user was logged in. I know it is possible to make an event private, however, the site owner didn't like this as they though an empty calendar looked depressing and misleading to potential members of the site.

        So why not have the ability to hide any plugin content from users and display an alternative (possibly custom) message requesting the user to login?

        • Rating System for Events

          A rating system for past events could be great. I was looking into implementing with GD star, but you can only have the option of rating ALL events, not past events due to the event date being set as meta data not as post date.

            • Events Trip Planner

              The problem: As user I'd like to participate at some events at the same day. Here this means multiple concerts at the same music festival. But all events are scheduled at different times and different venues. I have no idea how to get my perfect personal time table for the most important events I have selected.

              The solution: As wordpress admin I've recently installed the events calender and had also added all the events, venues and dates. I'd like to install a plugin like "personal trip planner" by modern tribe where users can select and rate events they want to…

              • Option to sync events with TheEventsCalendar.com

                Add option to sync events to TheEventsCalendar.com or another main website where users could sort by location and date to find an event nearby. The links would go back to each site that submitted, providing more referral traffic and an easy one stop shop for people looking for something to do. (The site cannot provide ALL the information or people will not click through for more info.)

                It would need to be easily integrated and with little extra effort. Anyone else see this as a benefit? Comment below or vote up.

                • Invitation Tracking

                  If we were able to add the invitation list into the system, send the invitations for an invitation from the system itself and track how many has opened their emails, how many has clicked thru to check the site and finally to track how many have registered to the event. The system should also have a filtration process build in to be able to send reminders to only those who have not registered as reminders, and a separate email who have registered. Similarly, to be able to send email or SMS to those who have registered at different times as reminders for attending an event.

                      • custom directory to be made from an Organizer or Venue list

                        Since there is now a plugin available to list organizers or list venues via shortcode, I would like to see an extension (I'd pay for this!) to ECP that allows general to full customization of a directory (using either the organizer or venue information) so that I can add a Custom Directory (organizer or venue) to the events section of my website. No directory plugins for WP currently meet the needs of a person wishing to do this. Hope to see it!

                          • Performers at event

                            Hi Tribe team,

                            We run a multi-event single establishment events website and we have different musicians and actors, dancers, singers etc.that come here.

                            We would love the ability to associate the singers/musician etc. with the event.

                            Rather than having to paste in the blurb of them every time they are here, we can associate which performers are associated with which day of events (especially recurring events).

                            IS this possible without the need for a new feature or is it in the pipeline?

                            Thanks

                            Mark

                            • Post calendar events to a Facebook Page's wall as posts (not as events)

                              I would like to see a plugin that automatically posts events from a WordPress site running TEC to the wall of a Facebook Page as Facebook posts (not as Facebook events).

                              The FB posts would simply show the title of the event together with a link to the WordPress event page.

                              I would not want to create FB events automatically, because my WP site has thousands of events. I just need FB wall posts.

                              TEC Support told me that the FB API seems to allow such a facility.

                              NB - There is a similar suggestion here, but to be clear…

                              • Default image replacement with calendar icon overlaid with date from event

                                This idea is basically to have a standard calendar icon but overlay with some clever CSS the date of the event so that it appears that the event has a custom image.

                                In addition, enable a user to upload the desired standard template icon and then write the date over the icon with standard CSS.

                                For example, if the user uploads a round icon, then the system would "print" the date in the style inside that space automatically. The user would have to ensure the template used conforms to the settings of where the date is printed otherwise the date…

                                  On your plugin there is possible to buy ticket, but I can't find something like e.g. user are browsing events, some of them is good for him, and he/she click on add to my list. After date's on event peope can added something like "I was there". It's something like on Facebook Events.

                                    • Feature event thumbnail link

                                      Hi,

                                      first of all The Events Calendar is really great plugin.

                                      I am using for all events the function Feature Event to show the thumbnail picture in the widget area. Right now I can go the event detail only if I click on the Event name. What I need is to have link also on the thumbnail picture. Especialy on mobile users try to click on picture but there is no link.

                                      Can you please add this feature?
