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. Autofill the featured image in Event Tickets

    Make it possible to add the WooCommerce Product featured image from within the ticket meta-block in the event. I would be perfectly happy with either of three solutions:
    1 reusing the header image
    2 reusing the featured image of the event
    3 selecting a separate image for just this reason.

    But can understand if option 1 might conflict with how the image might be used otherwise and option 2 might conflict with the fact that the ticket is stored basically separate from the event, so perhaps option 3 should be it and will save me a lot of time anyway.…

    • QR Code Easy Checkin Page : GREEN / RED

      Make an easy Page with not many (none) personal data shown for QR Code checkin ... just a FULL SCREEN green or red light (background color) so it is easy to checkin ... meaning allow entrance or deny. Normally at a venues door you don't have your office staff and a computer - you just want to use an App and see on first look GREEN (let the person in) or RED (deny entrance, maybe with reason given "already checked in" oder "ticket order not complete") ... that would make it possible to have some guys doing door without explain…

      • Create a Shortcode for Tickets QR Code

        Using this similar to the [tribe-user-event-confirmations] Shortcode in the account page of the user would make sending emails with the pdf ticket having the qr code included unessesary. Most users will have their mobile with them and can open the ticket with the QR code from their account page on the day of the event.

        • Add subevents with stock management option

          An event could have subevents, like a 2-3 days conference (300 participants) could have general sessions with all the participants and smaller sessions at same time for smaller groups. (6 sessions for 50 people)

          • Add text that the user would see prior to Start Sale date

            Add one text field to the ticket area that would incorporate the "Start Sale" field to display a message to the visitor if they view the event before that date.

            As it is now, the visitor reads about the event, sees all the When and Where details... and then wonders what they're missing and why they can't purchase/sign up. All they need is a message: "Registration will begin on %StartSale% -- please check back!"

            • Save attendee information in woocommerce customer account for future orders

              If a customer would like to order a ticket more often, he must fill in any custom attendee fields again and again. In our case (a solution for a customer) this is very complicated with 8 fields. It would be very convenient if the inputs of these fields could be saved for future orders. It is conceivable that the attendee data from the last order could be inserted at the push of a button.

                • Attendee sorting and Email information

                  I have been using the Events Tickets Plus for 3 weeks now and really like it. However, there are a couple of things that would make using the software better. I would really like the ability to be able to sort the attendee view information so it can show the newest ticket purchases first in the list, instead of having to go to page 3 of 4, 4 of 4, etc. Also, it would be great to have any custom filed information that is collected from the ticket to be shown on the notification email the administrator gets, as well…

                  • Add link to event in cart page and checkout page like did it in order detail view

                    When you add ticket to cart and go to cart to checkout, you just see static text of ticket, without link to event, and can't go back to check what you put into cart ;)
                    The same case when you press proceed to checkout and get on checkout page.
                    Only when you complete order, in your order list you can see text of ticket and link to event

                      Events Tickets Plus could enable commissioning options such as Sympla and Eventbrite, where you offer the event advertiser the option of passing the rate on to guests or absorbing it.

                      • Add "attended" on Shortcode [tribe-user-event-confirmations] and show past events

                        Would be great to show the past events on this shortcode.
                        As well show if the user attended (or checked in) to the event.
                        We would like to use the plugin to sell rides to a rollercoaster and setup the system having a "single ride" event all year. A user can buy multible tickets for this "one" event. It would be great if the user could see "used" tickets to better identify which tickets are still free to use (and can be printed). Using this in combination with the QR Code would be very powerfull solution. We then would setup…

                        • Ticket sales via Stripe without Woo

                          The recently released Event Tickets with Paypal is great, but purchasers still have to leave your web site and go out to Paypal. It would be great if this solution also included Stripe, which allows you to have the credit card form on the order page.

                          • make RSVP count toward shared capacity

                            Is there a reason that RSVPs do not count against shared capacity? It would be really great if they did. I often use multiple RSVP types, and would ideally like to set a shared capacity equal to the capacity of the venue, then allow the quantity available per RSVP type to adjust based on that shared capacity.

                            Thanks!

                            • Allow direct access to WooCommerce Product meta

                              In the ticket definition section, allow direct access to set some of the WooCommerce Product metadata.

                              For example, we use the product category to set discounts via WooCommerce Memberships. However, we are forced to go into the WooCommerce product (ticket) that is auto-defined and set the product category as needed. It would be much easier to do this from within the ticket definition section of the event itself.

                              Thanks!

                                Often there are items tied into an event Organizer would like to sell at the time of purchasing tickets (event t-shirts, caps, journal Ads). As confirmed with support there is no way to show these add-one on the events page. Suggest a feature where an organizer could add existing WooCommerce products to be sold with tickets. Note that for simplicity these would be products to be picked up at event (no need to go through the shipping dialogue).

                                • Add "Ticket Fieldset" to CSV import for tickets.

                                  My client offers after-school events per quarter for dozens of schools. Every event has a required ticket fieldset (child's name, age, medications and allergies, etc.)

                                  I've got CSV imports working for events. And even though importing corresponding tickets is a little clumsy since you have to somehow match event titles or IDs I've got that working as well.

                                  It's a big pain having to go in after and manually add Ticket Fieldsets to every imported event.

                                  Since saved Ticket Fieldsets are already named please add a CSV import column for those as well.

                                      • Simple(r) checkout with PayPal & Stripe, without Woo

                                        Installing/maintaining/styling/troubleshooting WooCommerce seems like overkill for many applications and seems like a common criticism of Event Tickets Plus. The plugin's existing functionality (configuring & selecting multiple ticket levels and quantities) seems perfect for handing off to simpler checkout processes than Woo - namely Stripe's excellent Checkout or the ever-popular PayPal. Seems like an easy win for simpler applications.

                                        • Custom Text for Buy Now Button on Event List

                                          I need to replace the text buy now with registered now. Seems like there's no way to do this.
