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.

    • Mailchimp integration

      An add-on to integrate with Mailchimp would be nice. I would like to automate with Mailchimp 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.

      • Integrate with PolyLang

        This plugin is already 95% working correctly with The Events Calendar.

        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

          • Google Calendar Sync using Calendar ID + API

            I'm aware of the iCal importer, but all that really does is import and it sounds more like a workaround. I'm also not asking for iCal subscriptions or w/e everyone else is writing about. 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…

            • Integrate with Headway theme

              At the present time Event Calendar Pro munges the Blogroll and query filters for the Blogroll whenusing Headway development environment. Activated, it causes posts to be listed in random order, and if a Headway query filter is used, it stops working altogether. It works fine when no query filter is used but still causes the Blogroll to appear in random order.

              • 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

                        • Compatiblity with Page Widgets and similar plugins

                          At the moment if you add an event calendar widget to a widget area from the post itself, using a plugin such as Page Widgets (http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-page-widget/), the category selector doesn't work, because, not expecting to be loaded on the post edit screen, it doesn't load all its scripts.

                          This can be fixed if you want to make your plugin compatible, by modifying line 18 of /events-calendar-pro/lib/widget-calendar.class.php from

                          if ( $hook != ‘widgets.php’ )

                          to

                          if ( $hook != ‘widgets.php’ && $hook != ‘post.php’ )

                                  Hello - new user of the plugin here. We are a large community of activists and bring together a number of events - so far Evenbrite plugin has been amazing.

                                  I wonder if it would be possible to import from Eventful? They have a great accessible API and the monitor the fair use of this: http://api.eventful.com

                                  The API is quite extensive. But in particular I'd like to search by keyword, location and venue.

                                  Thanks!

                                    • 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.

                                        • Events List Widget Beaver Builder Compatibility – Categories Filter Not Showing in Widget

                                          When I add your events list widget to Beaver Builder layout, the categories i’ve added do not show as filter options. However, when I add the events list widget to a wordpress sidebar, it works.

                                          Shortcodes do seem to work and resolve the problem, but they are not an option for a client that is not tech savvy. So I would like to get this resolved if possible.

                                          Here is what I see when I add events list widget to a wp footer widget area:
