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 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.…

    • Be able to send a notification to the event organiser when someone RSVP

      Ability to add a notification to the event organiser when someone RSVP's for an event, or purchases a ticket. We have a community organisation using tickets plus to manage RSVP's for events, and only have 10-15 people attending each event. They would love to be notified. At the moment we are using BCC on the ticket, but it would be more ideal to just have a notification that could be triggered.

      • 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.

        • Need a reliable way to hide remaining tickets.

          We do not want to display the remaining tickets in our events or on our calendar. The suggested CSS snippets do not work. Help!

          • Show how many tickets are left on the spot, if pre-sale is over.

            In our events pre-sale is finishing 2 hours before event.
            If there are 20 tickets left, which were not sold, it would be great, if there is way to show how many tickets people can buy at the venue/on the spot.

            • 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.

              • Use discount / promo code to enable certain tickets

                There are situations where we want to issue special tickets to certain guests (e.g. family member of organising committee, specially invited guests). But we don't want this ticket to be visible to the general public. The solution is to give them a promo code. If the enter the promo code, the special ticket will be visible to checkout.

                • 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.

                  • Limit RSVP or Woocommerce ticket Registration to ONE (or selectable value) for the same event

                    I think it's necessary have a feature to limit the number of RSVP registrations that a single user can do. It can be useful both with mandatory logging for RSVP registration and with guest users. It doesn't make sense that a single user can register more than one reservation.

                        • Shortcode for Ticket Purchase (Eventbrite, etc.)

                          While the Events Calendar is quite robust, we'll sometimes have standalone pages for larger events. Purchasing tickets might be easier on those pages than on a brief synopsis in The Events Calendar.

                          Could we have a shortcode to display Eventbrite/etc. tickets on posts/pages?

                          Anchors don't work well with most naming structures.

                            Hello all,

                            Thank you for your votes and comments.
                            We would love to see more votes on this one.

                            Also, as it stands, please note that for RSVP and Event Tickets plus tickets, it is already possible to add them to posts, pages and custom post types (not via a shortcode, but by selecting the appropriate setting under the Events > Settings > Tickets tab)

                            Cheers

                            I would like to see Wootickets integrate a list of default ticket profiles, where we can fill out the commonly used fields we re-type hundreds of times. Almost all of the ticket fields could be automatically populated based on a template, with changes and variations made as needed.

                            For my personal needs, 99% of the hundreds of tickets I create every month could be selected from a list of 8 profiles, with information being spit out for: names, description, price, start/end sales, stock, etc.

                            The two fields that would require some consideration for advanced functionality would be:

                            • 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.

                              • 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.

                                  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

                                  • text message instead of an email

                                    when an event ticket purchase is completed, it would be convenient to have the option to send a text message instead of an email.

                                    • Sell event tickets on Facebook event page

                                      Eventbrite and Facebook have an integration where you can buy tickets directly from the Facebook event page, which get processed by Eventbrite. Is this possible t create for The Events Calendar Plus? It would really give a boost to ticket sales.

                                      • Visualize export orders and attendees better

                                        It's pretty unclear where to find the export to XLS of orders and extra information the attendees filled out. You need to surf to ALL MESSAGES or ALL PAGES to see the link. Could this link be visualised more prominently under PRODUCTS or in WOOCOMMERCE?

                                          This should be common practice!!!
