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. 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. …

    • Add to cart with 0 tickets selected - fix woocommerce verification

      My suggestion for a solution:
      instead of setting a minimum quantity of 1 as a default value, I’d recommend adding an info message, when the user tries to add 0 tickets to cart reading the following:
      Please select the desired amount of tickets first, then click the add to cart button again. Thank you.

      Or something alike.
      This message should be in the form of the common woocommerce error notices , that also appear in usual product pages when trying to add the amount of 0 items to cart.

      It is als not a good idea to set 1 as…

      • Feature request: Attendee list extension in Admin

        Thread in support forum (december 2016 and still nothing has happened to the inacceptable attendee list view... had to custom code it all so clients can actually work with that half baked piece of code..):
        https://theeventscalendar.com/support/forums/topic/feature-request-attendee-list-extension-in-admin/

        1. Request:
        Currently as also mentioned in this thread:
        https://theeventscalendar.com/support/forums/topic/attendee-list-add-guest-name-column/

        there is no possiblity to see the names of the attendees, if entered on checkout, in the attendee list. Instead we see purchaser's name. Useless.

        Why is that? Isn’t this the attendee list??
        Also there should be a possiblity to enter or modify the attendee’s names at a later time, directly within the woocommerce…

        • 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.

          • enable selection of multiple saved fieldsets

            When creating custom attendee information, enable the ability to select more than one saved fieldset. Right now there is only the option to select one, and then the ability to add saved fieldsets goes away. I'd like to be able to add multiple (such as Guest Contact & Meal Preference).

            • Register multiple attendees in one purchase under separate names & email

              • Selling tickets thru WooCommerce Product Page, and not the Event Page - Improvements

                I use Beaver Builder and (more importantly) the new Beaver Themer plugin which allows for Woo product pages to be way more easily styled (praise be!). In order to benefit from those plugins, I would need to sell tickets using Woo’s product page and not the single event page. To that end I have followed your article:

                https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/selling-tickets-from-the-woocommerce-products-page/

                That mostly made sense, and worked. However, doing that you lose some functionality associated with the event page’s “Add to Cart” code. Namely, Woo’s “Add to Cart” won’t trigger the prompts for custom attendee data (if set).

                Would be great if the…

                • Tickets Grouping

                  Would be really nice if there was a grouping option for tickets to make it less messing when there are many tickets options, something like the image below.

                  • Give options for events

                    We teach courses with multiple options like do you want a book? do you want to add additional training, etc. For now we have to have a separate ticket for each option. Very time intensive and especially since we can't "duplicate" a ticket for another date. We need to have a single ticket with the ability to add options to this ticket.

                    • Multi-currency compatibility for selling tickets

                      We sell in multiple currencies (where prices are fixed in each currency, not just converted from one to another) and so we operate in a multi-currency Woocommerce environment which means we cannot use Events Calendar without it becoming multi-currency compatible. Multi-currency is typically provided by a plugin such as Aelia which is what we use https://aelia.co/shop/currency-switcher-woocommerce/ Please adopt this so we can sell tickets to events anywhere around the world, with prices set independentlly in each location, in their local currency!

                      • Add the ability to upload a custom Text block to each email Ticket in addition to the Header Image.

                        For some of our events we do not provide the venue address until after a ticket has been purchased. To accomplish this I am creating a jpg with the address information and uploading it as the ticket header image. The feature i am requesting is to allow the upload of text in addition to the current Header image upload functionality. The text block should be displayed immediately below the Header Image (if a header image has been uploaded).

                        This would provide the ability to add custom instructions and other information to the ticket email for each ticket type without making…

                          • Make the orders screen able to export a csv like the attendees screen can.

                            It would be great if you could export the orders report like the attendees report. My client needs both reports for different uses, and it's counter intuitive to provide a file for one and necessitate a login for the other.

                                I know that I can change the position of the ticket purchase form globally via Events > Settings > Tickets > Location of Tickets form. For a site with a majority of impulse-purchase events that are low cost, it is a good idea to put the ticket form at the top so people can click it and buy immediately.

                                But there are times, for a few expensive events, when it is better to place the ticket purchase form at the end of the "long sell" so people don't get sticker shock at the top of the event page and click…

                                  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 .

                                  • Custom Ticket Sorting in the Ticket Order Form

                                    As a site admin, I would like to define the order in which tickets are displayed on the front end of the ticket order form.

                                    There is a way to organize tickets using a function:
                                    https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/changing-the-order-of-tickets/

                                    However, the options provided are limited only to ordering tickets by price and by alphabetical order.

                                    Perhaps a drag-and-drop interface in the back-end editor or a numeric field next to each ticket would be alternatives for allowing site admins control to arrange tickets in the order they would prefer.

                                      USER STORIES & GOALS

                                      - I am a customer who added multiple tickets to my WooCommerce shopping cart, I would like to confirm that I filled out the data for each ticket accurately before clicking Proceed to Checkout.
                                      - I am a customer who realized that one of the multiple tickets in my cart has inaccurate attendee meta info. I would like to edit only that ticket, or at least remove it from my cart without removing all of the others.

                                      SOME POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS

                                      - When 2+ tickets are added to the cart, each one will appear as a separate…

                                      • Add an option to adjust ticketing to allow for a faster check-in

                                        We recently built a site for a client using Events Tickets Plus- client checks in over 500 users a day but the response time for checking in was slow to load, so we stripped all of the backend out of the response showing only a large green confirmation message for attendee being checked in successfully or a large red confirmation for an already checked-in ticket, reducing the scan to check-in time to under 2 seconds. If you'd like us to share the snippets we would be happy to do so but this would really be a great option in the…

                                        • Each ticket to have multiple ticket types & cost

                                          For example:

                                          Ticket for an event on a given day at a particular time
                                          Adult / $15
                                          Child / $7

                                          The only way to do this currently is to have several tickets for each type of ticket & time, meaning you could have a long list of tickets for users, confusing matters.
