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. 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.

  2. Add payment method on e-ticket.

    It would be helpful, if the payment method would be stated on the e-ticket, which the user/guest prints out at home and brings to the event.

    Some people are still old fashion and would much rather pay at the door than online and to accommodate this, the user can order tickets online, check "Pay at the door" as payment method and prints out the e-ticket. However, in order for the usher/clerk to know, if the ticket has been paid for, it should state the payment method on the ticket.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Allow the sale of other WooProducts with tickets on events page

    Often there are items tied into an event Organizer would like to sell at the time of purchasing tickets (event t-shirts, caps, journal Ads). As confirmed with support there is no way to show these add-one on the events page. Suggest a feature where an organizer could add existing WooCommerce products to be sold with tickets. Note that for simplicity these would be products to be picked up at event (no need to go through the shipping dialogue).

  6. Register multiple attendees in one purchase under separate names & email

    When someone clicks to 3 RSVPs attending - I want to have them add each individual attendee name. Right now RSVPs are only allowed to enter one name.

  7. 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.

  8. Add a filter for deleted, canceled, completed orders on the attendees list

    the ability to filter out the attendees that are not going with the ones that are going by determining the order status. this would be best as a part of the text input box that is labeled "Filter by purchaser name, ticket #, order # or security code: "

  9. 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. …

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

    Please add your votes to this idea, and add your comments to share your use cases.

    If we were to implement this, it would be based on the user login, not IP addresses.

    In the meantime, one of these snippets may be helpful:

  13. 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).

  14. WooCommerce > Show Attendee information on the checkout page

    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 item in the…

  15. 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
    i.e.

    edittribeticket
    readtribeticket
    deletetribeticket
    deletetribeticket
    edittribeticket
    editotherstribeticket
    delete
    otherstribeticket
    publishtribeticket
    editpublishedtribeticket
    delete
    publishedtribeticket
    deleteprivatetribeticket
    edit
    privatetribeticket
    readprivatetribe_ticket

  16. More types and validation options for ticket fieldsets

    The ability to save "ticket fieldsets" for re-use is a great time-saver. However, I find myself wanting to have more options for field types and validation options.

    Some examples:

    1) number field type
    2) email validation (could be as simple as validating that entered string is xxx@yyy.zzz where zzz is a valid TLD)
    3) phone number validation
    4) date validation
    5) custom validation

    Thanks!

  17. Add an opt-in checkbox for RSVP confirmation email

    We'd like to add the emails of people who RSVP to our MailChimp lists, but we would need them to opt-in first. We want to do this through the RSVP confirmation email, rather than asking for emails of all attendees, which doesn't work because then we'd be asking the registrant to subscribe friends to a list. So we would need a checkbox on the front end with an editable message, and for that to come through on the export.

  18. Please allow passbook support

    It would be great if the QR tickets which are offered in he ticket pro plugin could be supported by passbook. It's so convenient. Most of my mobile ticket purchasers are on iPhone so it would be great to offer this function and the android equivalent.

  19. 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. Until then please keep voting, it helps us prioritize.

    Thanks again!

  20. Add a datepicker for birth dates (or any other dates) to tickets

    As we offer many events for kids (e.g. ski lessons) it is mandatory to receive the kid's birth date. If we just add a text field, we get different date formats and can't use them for further planing in Excel.
