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.

I suggest you ...

  1. Beaver Builder Compatibility - Full Integration So Everything Works

    Beaver Builder's Page Builder is hugely popular with over 275K downloads. Right now the widget don't work completely in the page builder. Some functionality is missing and there are bugs.

    It would be grand of there could be a concerted effort to make sure Event Calendar is fully compatible with Beaver Builder.

    • Connect (sync) with Microsoft Exchange

      We need a calendar plugin that will be able to connect to an exchange calendar.

      This plugin has most of the features we need in a WP calendar system minus the connection with Exchange.

      We are going to be building a 120+ multisite environment and each of those sites need to have a calendar connected to their own calendar within exchange.

      See my other suggestion for a different approach.

      • Two way iCal sync via Outlook for editors

        We need a calendar plugin that will be able to be edited via Outlook (iCal 2-way sync).

        This plugin has most of the features we need in a WP calendar system minus the connection with Exchange (or 2-way iCal sync for editors).

        We are going to be building a 120+ multisite environment and each of those sites need to have a calendar that can be edited from within Outlook (iCal 2-way sync).

        See my other suggestion for a different approach.

        • Import from Openadenda.com

          Should be great to integrate Openagenda.com agenda directly in The Event Calendar

          • Follow-up Event Email for all customers, not just attendees

            Currently you can configure Follow-up Emails to send auto emails to Event attendees. It would be nice to have an option to configure these auto Follow-up Emails to send to all customers; not just event attendees. This would allow you to market upcoming Events to your customers.

            • add possibility to add a fusion slider on the events page.

              I am using the avada theme and would like to us the events calendar plugin as well. At this moment it is not possible to ad a fusion slider on the events page. That's a shame because in my website design I have them on all of my pages. It is reason for me to not use this plugin right now.

              • Divi Integration

                Divi is currently one of the best-selling Wordpress themes. It integrates smoothly with WooCommerce but currently doesn't integrate well with The Events Calendar.

                  Hello all,

                  Thank you for pitching in.
                  We have many of our customers and team members using the Events Calendar alongside Divi with great results.

                  As long as the proper template is used in Events → Settings → Display , things work great.

                  Furthermore, our upcoming 4.3 version of Events Calendar Pro will include full calendar shortcodes that will allow customers to include the full calendar to the page of their choice.

                  Please let us know if there are still additional integration needs

                • Allow Gravity Forms fields to display in Events Cal events

                  I have a Gravity Form application page which creates a front end landing page for the applicant when submitted. The front end page is displayed using GravityView and works great. I'd also like to manually create events using Events Cal and include the URL of the GravityView landing page and the name of the applicant as dynamic links, ideally also with the ability to display the new Events Cal event(s) linked to that applicant on the GravityView page.

                  Happy to provide more details.

                  • Compatibility with WordPress.com

                    I would love to see a option where a client could pay for access to a version of the Events Calendar that is hosted by you, with calendar and widgets that could be embedded on a WordPress.com site. This kind of solution would be good for small non-profit organizations that do not want to spend money on maintenance for a self-hosted version of WordPress.

                    • Google Calendar Sync using Calendar ID + API

                      I'd like TEC and Google Calendar to be 1 and the same, only that TEC is responsive on our site. The administration is already used to updating google calendar. TEC would be perfect if it had this. I've found a plugin that does what I'm talking about https://wordpress.org/plugins/google-calendar-events/ but it's honestly not as flushed out as TEC(especially in terms of responsiveness). It uses the calendar ID and calendar api key. I think you guys could do what they've done better. It would be awesome if this came out as a feature. Thanks!

                        That’s a great idea! Thanks for the specificity. This is something we have talked about some, and are keen to see how many folks are interested in it. We really appreciate your posting the idea here.

                        You might also want to check out our Event Aggregator service (https://theeventscalendar.com/product/event-aggregator/) and see if that would meet your needs. It allows you to import events from Google Calendar into The Events Calendar and even has automatic imports so you can keep things up to date.

                        Cheers!

                      • Integrate with Envoy.co for on site registration

                        Envoy, like ECP is a wonderfully put together product. We use both for our real world events driven business. However, to complete our stack of web calander, ticket purchase and on site registration, we currently also need to use Eventbrite. Eventbrite is also an excellent product but small volume users but for power event hosts (we host over 1,000 events a year) also using ECP it has become duplicative on a number of fronts and is not an insubstantial cost. Integrating envoy directly with ECP would enable the removal of EB, provide a more elegant solution and save users money.

                        • Integrate with Ticket Tailor

                          Add a plugin for Ticket Tailor - https://www.tickettailor.com/ - as an alternative to Eventbrite and other ticketing solutions. They have a WordPress plugin for event ticketing and don't charge any per ticket fees like the other companies do.

                          • MailPoet integration

                            An add-on to integrate with Mailchimp would be nice. I would like to automate with MailPoet a weekly email reminding users of the weeks upcoming events. This would be a nature extension of any calendar plugin it would seem, but I have yet to find that integration.

                            • Built-in compatibility with WooSlider

                              Event Calendar pages cannot be targeted using WooSlider, It'd be great if we could customise sidebars for EC pages using WS.

                                I’m not sure this is something that we can address on our side. Our events are a custom post type and should be accessible by any other plugin that pulls content from custom post types.

                                For this, the only solution may be to modify or filter how those options are chosen within the WooSlider settings.

                                It would be great to integrate to GoToTraining for a seamless single page experience in The Events Calendar

                                • Integrate with X-theme (Titles and Breadcrumbs not working for Single-Event, Venue, Organizer pages)

                                  The breadcrumbs and page titles are not working out of the box with X-theme. I have modified their breadcrumbs function to get all of the pages working except for Single events, Venues and Organizers.

                                  It seems that these last three will just not play nice with the theme. It will not even work when replacing the function with Yoast's breacrumbs (inside the Yoast SEO plugin).

                                  I am also running into the same issue with diplaying the title of those specific pages as well.

                                  Currently both dev teams (X-them & ECP) are pointing the finger at the other developer.

                                    There are only 2 things that ignore the language addition in the URL:

                                    1. the "All Events" link in breadcrumb above Event Detail page
                                    2. the "View all events" link at bottom of widget

                                      • Standalone version of The Events Calendar not reliant on WordPress

                                        I would love to see the Events Calendar as either a standalone app for situation where I am using OpenCart or a platform other than WordPress.

                                        • Ninja Forms Integration

                                          Registration for events with Ninja Forms would be a nice feature.
                                          Ninja Forms, just as Gravity Forms, has a long list of compatible addons, and would add much more functionality to Events Calendar.
