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.

  1. Email list of event attendees to admin before event

    Have a field to enter in the amount of time you wish to receive an automatic email of event attendees and a field to enter who the email is sent to. This idea was suggested to me by one of our clients, it would make it easier for event organizers to view the attendee list if they are uncomfortable with using the WordPress back end.

    Loving the plugin by the way, Cheers!

      • Recurring Event Support for Tickets

        Currently our WooTickets plugin does not work fully with recurring events, and users can only purchase tickets for the most upcoming event in a series. Would it be useful to you to combine the power of WooTickets with the PRO recurring events feature?

          We’re still working on this feature but it has admittedly been tougher to build than we has expected. While we are unable to get it into our next major release, Event Tickets Plus 4.4, we are still committed to this and hoping to get into one of the upcoming major releases instead.

        • Tickets attached to emails as PDFs

          I know you used to have PDF tickets - this would be SO much better. Especially for multiple tickets as you can't easily forward tickets or print them

            • Tickets: Venue seating chart with different price grade and ability graphically to choose seats.

              Add the venue seating chart with different price grade and ability graphically to choose seats (similar plane seat selection with check-in).
              Provide ability for ticket admin to "grey out" some reserved seats.

                Implementing a graphical solution, where you can click on a given seat and it will reserve it, is probably not possible due to the complexity and technological limitations.

                However, would the ability to upload an image of your seating map/chart work? From there you could specify a list of seating names in the backend and when a user purchases a ticket they can select from a drop down of available seats, and cross reference it with your seating chart image so they now which goes where. We realize this will not be as fancy as many people are picturing, but since it is actually possible to implement it is a compromise we would be interested in looking into if this will solve your needs.

              • Allow manual entry of attendee information

                I'd like to be able to go into the backend and manually add an attendee to the list.

                • Ticket Bundles / Multiple Event Passes

                  Set up ticket bundles - for example selling a All Access Pass (all events) or a Pass for a couple of events that provides either tickets for each event and/or for limited seat events a count per pass purchased towards each single event included in the pass.

                  • Develop an Android and iOS App for QR Code Scanning Check-In

                    Build or support a third party app that can be used by the event venue to check-in attendees similar to Eventbrite Entry Manager https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.eventbrite.organizer

                    Something easy, handheld and mobile for ticket takers to use across several windows with most all the same features of Eventbrite... Maybe it's as easy as contacting the same developer and changing the data source to connect to WordPress...???

                    • "Sold Out", "Only x positions left" etc type labels for events on the summary calender view

                      we’re increasingly encountering the (quality) problem of sold out events and would like to show of the fact that our dates our selling out to casual web browsers!

                      Note we sell event entries through eventbrite so another avenue to explore would be functionality within eventbrite / your eventbrite tickets plugin

                      • Reusable Ticket Defaults/Profiles (as per Venues and Organizers)

                        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:

                          • Do not include deleted tickets or cancelled orders in participant list sold units.

                            Right now, if you look at the number of ticket sold in the participant list, it include tickets that were sold then cancelled, or completely deleted orders. I suggest that this number only includes existing participant or that another item is created to see the number of expected attendees and active tickets sold.

                              Thank you all for your continued feedback here. This is very much something we are interested in refining. We are going to rope in a strategist to properly account for the various workflows of as many people as we can, and try to find a slick method and improved method for reporting this info to everyone.

                              Our strategists are extremely busy working through our hundreds of great feature requests. But as soon as an opening is available work on this will begin. Until then please keep voting, it helps us prioritize.

                            • Add the option to allow the user to download the event ticket.

                              Hey, I've been using your plugins for over a year now and the consistent problem of ticket emails not sending can be solved if the option to download the ticket as a pdf was made available. This would reduce the amount of emails about not receiving tickets, the user can log into their account and see the tab My Events with the tickets ready to download and resend as an email.

                              I know I'm not alone who is still suffering the emails so this would be a really cool addition.

                              Vote it up!!!!

                                  • Force minimum number of tickets purchased

                                    Offer a reduced ticket price for buying X or more, and force the quantity of that ticket to start at X.

                                    We sell reduced price tickets for groups of 3 or more, but the quantity on the product page always starts at 1, which allows anyone to buy only one ticket at the lower price. Currently we have to say, "Contact us for 3 or more" and process these sales manually.

                                    Eventbrite does this beautifully, but we're trying to get away from the extra fees.

                                    Thanks!

                                    • Attendees list in alphabetical order

                                      It would be helpful if the attendees list in WooTickets could be sorted by alphabetical order either by first or last name.

                                      • Set default ticket types

                                        It would be nice if there was a way to set default ticket types for a new event. For example, if I know that the majority of events will have the same 3 tickets options with the same prices for every event, it would be nice to have those 3 ticket types automatically populate when creating a new event instead of creating the same 3 ticket types each time.

                                        • Add overview of attendees to calendar events

                                          I have 20+ events and would like to get an overview of number of attendees to the events. As it is today we have to click every single event to see how many attendees are joining.

                                          Basically all we need is an added column to the existing events overview (wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=tribe_events) with the current number of attendees.

                                          The thread (https://theeventscalendar.com/support/forums/topic/single-overview-of-ticket-attendees/#post-1124416) also discusses this feature, and Joe has brought a temporary solution that is very limited in use of both sorting and filtering, however better than the current solution.
