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. Managing attendees and order information from admin

    As an admin, I need to manage attendees of an event. For example I may need to remove an attendee, or edit the contact information of an attendee, I may also need to add an attendee to an event.

    For example a company buys 4 tickets to an event, but later on finds out that one employee could not make it, the company then calls and ask admin to remove a ticket.

    • Send mail to each attendee (when the buyer takes several tickets)

      Just imagine. I want to go at the event because is so great. I'm with my friends i want to invite them. I buy 15 tickets. On eah ticket, i will fill the textefields and put each name/surname/mail for my friends. I pay and i will receive my mail with all attendee. But i will be the only one who will receive this mail.
      If i go to the event not in the same time that my friend, how they can have their tickets?
      Should be great that even if a buyer takes few tickets, when textflieds (per tcket) are…

      • Required privacy policy or terms checkbox for tickets

        Privacy policies are required by EU law for anyone collecting personal information. This should show up automatically as a link or something on the event page. And everyone who RSVP's or buys tickets for an event should have to tick a box where they accept the privacy policy.

        • 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.

          • Add register/pay for a session or group of classes

            I am trying to sell tickets to a preschool program. It is every other Tuesday and $35 for 8 classes that make up one session. I would like for my clients to pay once for the whole session.

            It is not necessarily a recurring event, although I purchased Events Calendar Pro thinking this would be my solution- it wasn't.

            • Allow Admins to select 'Not Going' for cancelled RSVP bookings

              When managing cancelled RSVP attendees, instead of just deleting a booked RSVP, can this simply mark them as 'not going' so as to keep a record of all of those who have booked and have it still update the stock quantity?

              • 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!

                • Enable an option for GST calculation in Tickets Plus price displays

                  Gday Tribe forumites

                  In Australia, it is mandatory to display pricing including GST.

                  The easiest way to add data is to put the ex GST price in (eg. $98) and let the computer do the maths to display the GST inclusive price ($107.80).

                  The Tickets plus combination with WooCommerce allows one of the frontend display areas to display the GST inclusive, and I suspect this is WooCommerce coding.

                  However, the primary area for the ticket price does not calculate, it shows the original input.

                  Here is a screenshot: https://screencast.com/t/ZBmqzCspXbMb

                  I'd like a radio button option that overrides the input (default)…

                  • Autofill the featured image in WooCommerce 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.…

                    • Reduce the number of generated WooComerce products

                      This might also be solved by filtering out the tickets from WooCommerce admin's product list, but it seems now that I have no option beside having a product for every individual ticket. It would be nice to be able to reuse an existing product and link that to several event tickets, when they are basically the same but just for a different date, thus allowing to minimizing the number of event-ticket products generated

                      • 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.

                        • Optional fields for display of Attendee listings and export - SKU, Ticket Type

                          The list of fields displayed in the attendee listings is quite limited. If an event has multiple ticket variants, it would be useful to be able to filter by SKU or ticket type to create ticket specific lists etc.

                          • hide event tickets from wordpress & woocommerce search

                            Since I run a business that sells services, online courses and physical products next to tickets for small workshops and live courses, and find that in the search results there are a lot of tickets for events (both future and past events) that I really don't want in that results. I can't just filter out the product CPT, because I also have other products in store, I do want to show.

                            So I really need something (preverably a setting) to prevent event tickets from appearing in the search result (both the general WP-search and the WooCommerce Search). Whatever sollution should…

                                  • Add Permissions & Capabilities for Ticket Fieldsets

                                    Currently Permissions can be added for:
                                    - Events
                                    - Venues
                                    - Organisers

                                    https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/admin-roles-and-permissions/

                                    However there are no capabilities for "Ticket Fieldsets" therefore it uses the "edit_posts" functionality.

                                    You are therefore unable to segment these users from being able to also edit posts.

                                    Would be good to have a set of capabilities for ticket fieldsets

                                        • Hiding or filtering WooCommerce Event tickets from admin product list

                                          I would really like to have a filter in the WooCommerce Product list (admin) to hide the tickets Event Ticket Plus generates there. I find the number of ticket products build up quickly and mostly I want to manage the (much smaller number of) non-event products in my store and don't want to have to plough through the entire list of events products to find those products.

                                          Since I tend to access WooCommerce Ticket-products via the event admin page, I don't really need them in the product list, although I can Imagine it would be more flexible if a filter…
