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. Show Attendee Details on QR Scan

    Having the ability to check-in tickets via the new QR scan app is helpful, however all of our tickets have options available via Attendee Details that need to be shown. Shirt size for instance. If a summary of these details were displayed on QR scan it would stream line our check-in process.

    • Scan tickets for specific event only

      The app is connected to the store with an API key. However with an event for today and one for tomorrow, people with tickets for tomorrow can attend today. There should be a way of limiting the scans to a selected event

      • Allow people to view ticket type when using Event Tickets Plus App to check in

        When using your awesome new app to scan tickets we cannot view what ticket type is being checked in.
        Unfortunately I'm finding this out the day before our large event which has multiple ticket types available.
        A simple notice when it scans to say what ticket (type) it is would be perfect.

        • Tribe Commerce - Allow user to purchase multiple ticket type

          Tribe Commerce - Currently only one ticket type can be purchased at one time. Would be awesome if the user was able to purchase multiple ticket types in one purchase e.g x2 Adult Tickets and x2 Child Tickets.

          • Increase ticket capacity when after refunding and restocking via WooCommerce

            It would be nice if I didn't have to increase the ticket capcity after refunding and restocking a ticket via WooCommerce. This seems like it should be automated.

            • Add additional filter for 'tickets/email.php' email

              In the file `/src/Tribe/Meta/Render.php` add an additional filter the meta data to be transformed before the email is sent.
              ```
              $meta_data = apply_filters( 'tribe_event_tickets_plus_email_meta_data', $meta_data, $item );
              ```

              Why?
              I have a meta field that stores the user's ID instead of their name so I can use that throughout the application to grab additional information related to the user. So when the email goes out it only shows their user id instead of showing the name of the user.
              Adding this filter will allow me to transform that id into whatever content I would like.

              • Enable Attendee Information on WooCommerce Tickets

                The ability to collect the same attendee information when using the WooCommerce product of an Event Ticket.

                There are times when I want to allow users to purchase tickets on the event single page as well as on a dedicated conference page. However, the attendee information is not available on the WooCommerce product of the Event ticket. As these are instantions of the same ticket, the attendee information should captured in a consistent manner and available in the attendee list.

                • Autofill the Event Tickets header image

                  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.…

                  • Add option to disable the Attendee Registration page

                    The new Attendee Registration page is great for people who are just using TEC, but those who have other ecommerce flows on their website, might want to use the existing one.

                    Please create a filter to allow us to disable this feature, and collect attendee data our own way.

                      • Add additional filter for attendees table to allow searching by custom metadata

                        In the file `/event-tickets/src/Tribe/Attendees_Table.php` on line 805 there is a filter of `tribe_tickets_search_attendees_by` which allows adding additional searchable fields for attendees. If you can add one more additional filter for the `$items` then we would be able to search by any custom meta data that applies to that attendee.

                        Here is an example:

                        New Filter that would go on line 806 (or before the other filter, doesn't really matter)
                        ```
                        $items = apply_filters( 'tribe_tickets_search_attendees', $items, $search );
                        ```

                        Then in my functions.php I have:
                        ```
                        /**
                        * Add ticket ID as searchable
                        */
                        add_filter('tribe_tickets_search_attendees_by', function ($search_keys) {
                        $search_keys[] = 'ticket_id'; …

                        • Add a test qrcode that can be used to test Event Tickets Plus app

                          It would be extremely useful to have a test qrcode which can be used to test the event tickets plus app.
                          As well, it would be helpful to have a log of scans.
                          And the message for a completed scan should read "Ticket Checked In"
                          In fact, there is no reason why this message couldn't be customised.

                          • 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.

                            • 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.

                              • Event Tickets: Reset Deleted Attendees count on Attendees list

                                Need a way to reset the 'Deleted Attendees' count on the Attendees list. After we delete all Orders, all Attendees, and reset the Products total_sales to 0, it is still showing the prior 'Deleted Attendees' count. We have yearly recurring events, so we re-use the same events each year. Copying the event to a new one doesn't help, it still retains that count as soon as you place an order on the new event.

                                  • Woocommerce: Sales by Event Category Report

                                    Hi there,

                                    I would like to be able to see a report within Woocommerce: Sales by Event Category.

                                    At the moment this is a feature within the Events Calendar for Event Categories, but there is no way to measure the sales of a specific category. Therefore if we invest Google marketing into a specific event category there is no easy evaluation of sales.

                                    At the moment you can search by specific event, but we have 100s of events.

                                    Cheers.

                                    • Hide remaining tickets

                                      I want to hide the number of remaining tickets, until a certain threshold is met.

                                      At the moment I do that by adding that threshold in src/views/wootickets/tickets.php in line 131
                                      if ( $remaining && $remaining < $threshold)

                                      It would be nice though, if that threshold could be somehow defined in the Wordpress backend, so that I can for example define a global threshold and can turn that functionality to hide on or off. (Like in woocommerce).
                                      In addition it would be nice, if for each ticket the threshold could be set individually.
                                      So for example, the check is then performed. …

                                      • One-page Checkout on Event pages

                                        For a streamlined purchase process, put the checkout form directly on the Event page. (See Woocommerce One-Page Checkout by Prospress)

                                        This would also solve the request by several people to be able to skip the Cart page to go direct to Checkout, and might also resolve the issue of quantities being changed in the Cart or at Checkout.

                                        If there were a dynamic panel right above the checkout form that summarized the custom data fields that would also potentially resolve the issue of making changes during checkout that are then not reflected in those fields .

                                        There are a few…

                                        • Dropdown in the ticket area

                                          Wouldn't i be nice have a dropdown in the ticket area so the user can just choose a ticket (when having multiple tickets) at that line and not having to scroll down (Bad UX when having many types of tickets). After the ticket is selected the right price is shown and you can just fill in the attendee information and go to the check out.
