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. Show event dates in woocommerce order list

    As asked here: https://theeventscalendar.com/support/forums/topic/adding-event-date-event-name-to-woocommerce-order-list/

    Hi there, I have seen in some other event/booking plug-ins that work with WooCommerce that the stored event date (some add the event name too) is displayed in the order list – in the part that displays the details of buyers like name, address, payment method AND event date.

    Is there any chance to pick-up that stored information and display it in the WooCommerce order list? if not yet, any plans to implement this in the future?

  2. Add to Cart via AJAX

    It'd be really helpful to have an approach to add products to the cart via AJAX rather than add to cart and reload out to the cart page.

    The current flow is a hinderance to users attempting to buy tickets to multiple events.

  3. Adapt Event Tickets to WPML

    When developing a website in one language that sells courses, tickets and other virtual products wootickets works just fine. But when you work on a website with more than one language there is no possiblity of having a single translation of the tickets for the ones that don't understand the main language. I would be interesting if translated events could share the same stock, because some times tickets are limited.

    Thanks

  4. Easy way to design and preview email ticket

    The ticket emailed to customers is one of the major issues concerning the relationship with customers.
    The ticket design must be consistent with the design of the site to give the customer, the image of a professional product.
    But with the current system it is difficult to change the default design of the ticket: no preview no system to make it.So the idea would be to create the ticket in an editor ... a bit like gravity form or visual composer.

  5. Presales/Pre-event registration/Place deposit for a ticket

    Add the ability to place a deposit as part of a pre-event registration.

    I.E. "Secure a spot at this year's Event with a $50.00 deposit"

    This would also require a way to pay the Balance of the Event cost at a later date.

  6. Allow paper/non-virtual tickets

    We mail out physical tickets for our events (there are a few reasons for that, besides we don't have a scanning / check-in option available at the moment). There is a small delivery charge that we add to the purchased order unless the ticket is picked up from the office. The shipping option is not available if the ticket is virtual. I like the virtual option too for when tickets are bought closer to the event and we don't have time to mail them out. Hope this helps. Thanks!

  7. Shortcode or widget to show available events (not sold out)

    I would love to display only events with available tickets on my front page. This would require hiding sold out events in a widget or shortcode.

    We tend to have 20+ sold out events in any given month, so I prefer to show only what events are available. I am sure I am not the only one.

  8. 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.

  9. WooTickets as an in-house box office system as well as online e-ticketing

    Right now all ticket types and prices are published, including free tickets, but as a theater manager, I need to be able to issue comp tickets and reserve seats for events that aren't "published" ticket types. So I need an option when adding a ticket type whether or not to publish it or keep it hidden so that I, as the administrator, can operate the sales of that ticket type only from the back-end box office.

    On the same note, it would also be helpful to have a reserve or consignment feature that will change the overall number of tickets…

    Howdy!

    We wanted to point out Edgar’s easy to use implementation of this feature. For WooCommerce Tickets users you can use the 3rd party WooCommerce plugin: Dynamic Pricing and Discounts ( http://m.tri.be/18gz ). This plugin allows you to configure a discount for logged in users for all WooCommerce products, including Tickets.

    Thanks again for reaching out about this. Hopefully that solution will help at least some of you get the feature you wanted right now.

    Cheers!

    Thank you all for your patience on this one.

    This can be addressed with the following snippet pasted in the functions.php file of your theme (without the PHP tag at the top): https://gist.github.com/niconerd/16770b84adb6156aaa77948bf208bacb

    We also want to thank @websource who wrote a separate nice little plugin to address this.

  13. Synchronize Event Categories and Woocommerce Product Categories for Event Tickets items

    Add ability to map Event categories to Product categories so that when new tickets are added to an Event, they will automatically be added to a specific product category as well. This is most useful in cases of defining discount and coupon rules, to allow certain types of events to have coupon codes apply without requiring manual editing of ticket products after creation. Alternatively, provide a "Categories" selection box to the Ticket creation form, instead of automatic synchronization.

  14. 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.

    We have a KB article about this: https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/ticketing-using-seating-chart/

  15. Specific Roles/Capabilities for Event ticket checkin

    Setting capabilities for The Events Calendar and add-ons (such as Wootickets) to an event specific scope would allow better control over distributing tasks for events. Would most useful for Wootickets, and other ticketing add-ons, so that the Event organizer or whoever is in charge of the event itself could be able to check attendees in, without being given access to more content on the site. Current, viewing attendees requires an edit_posts capability, which opens up a lot more access than should be necessary for that task.

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  18. 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!

  19. 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:

    variable time frames…

  20. 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?
