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 true Subscribe Functionality for iCal & Google

    Downloading an iCal file is NOT THE SAME as a true subscribe to calendar function where users calendars are updated automatically with new events, changes to events and so forth. It's a total disappointment to find out that the other suggestion was closed when it the suggested feature was clearly not implemented. Having a static download is actually worse because users think they've subscribed and never get updates and have no reason to believe that they aren't getting the latest info.

    • Multiple day events with 1 day, 2 das or more days variation of ticket

      I organize event where i have:
      - 1 day tickets for 5€ (for example Friday ticket)
      - free tickets for children (Friday ticket)
      - Saturday ticket for 5€
      - Saturday ticket for children for free
      - 2 days ticket for 8€ (Friday + Saturday)
      - same for children...

      So, how i should or is it possible to set the space that it will calculate right numbers of free places?
      So if there are 100 places and I sell 1 ticket for Friday, there will be 99 tickets for Friday (paid or free for kids) and 100 tickets for Saturday. And…

        • You should add pay to submit event.

          Some magazines charge to post events. If this connected with woo commerce or something payment gateway we can charge for people to post their events.

          • Allow different images for recurring events

            It would be great if recurring events could have different images set for them, for example being able to set a different image for a different date range to create some variety. Or to allow for a slider or rotating set of images to create variety. We have some ongoing classes that occur several times a week and when they all have the same image and there aren't other events to break up the look it starts to get a little ridiculous looking in the list view. I realize for event recognition this may not be optimal for some recurring…

            • Managing attendees and order information from admin

              As an admin, I need to manage attendees of an event. For example I may need to remove an attendee, or edit the contact information of an attendee, I may also need to add an attendee to an event.

              For example a company buys 4 tickets to an event, but later on finds out that one employee could not make it, the company then calls and ask admin to remove a ticket.

              • Prevent duplicate events from Facebook event aggregator feeds

                Problem description: We have feeds from many local organizations' Facebook event pages. Many of these groups share each other's events on their pages -- as people do on Facebook. When their events pages get fed into the calendar, we get duplicate events.

                Proposed solution 1: I believe each Facebook event has a unique Event ID number that follows it wherever it is shared. So the same event can be displayed on numerous groups' FB pages but Facebook keeps track of it as only one event. Can you please add the Event ID number to the inputs you feed in from…

                • Notifications for Pending Imported Events

                  When a new import has been made and the event is set to "waiting for approval" an e-mail is sent to one or more (pre defined by admin) addresses with a message saying "you have new events to approve".

                    We have the ability to choose lots of different data to display or hide... all except image. I really want to show my next three events with images and details below instead of the clunky calendar graphic with the date. it just doesn't look good.

                    • Event Statistics for Community Organisers

                      I’m an entrepreneur, and I use the community events plugin to enable clubs and bars in London to list their events on my website. The problem is I find it hard to convince them to do so, because the community events plugin doesn’t display any visual or meaningful stats, e.g. how many visitors landed on their individual event pages (should be a stat), how many people bought tickets over time (should be visual like a line chart), how many people abandon the cart etc.

                      Most other ticket platforms show stats for event creators, and it provides valuable information for organisers…

                          • Add 'Series starts on' field for recurring Event Series

                            Irregular recurring events cannot be added (easily) using the current Event Series tabs (Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly, Once).

                            For example, my events may occur every weekend and also every day during each school holiday period. Using the current Event Series tabs, I cannot programme this without an additional feature…

                            How about for each Event Series rule, adding a 'Series starts on' feature to match the existing 'Series ends on' field? This would allow one rule to manage the infinitely weekend series, then another rule to manage irregular sessions such as the school holiday period.

                            E.g.
                            Rule 1: Event Series >…

                            • Add "venue" parameter for [tribe_events] shortcode

                              I'm looking to display the full month calendar view for a venue, whereby I can then use the tribe_events shortcode to display a calendar on each venue page on my site (think business listing site).

                              As per this thread, this is not currently possible with tribe_events. It was suggested I use the Venus feature and tribe_featured_venue shortcode, but that a) doesn't allow for full month view and b) duplicates functionality of my listing theme.

                                    Provide an API for creating new scheduled imports to be executed in Event Aggregator. We need to import thousands of automated import sources to aggregate from on various schedules. An API should enable us to extend the plugin to allow importing these scheduled imports from an external data source. We would like the ability to provide all the information required for creating a scheduled import in a single object or array.

                                          We need something in between hourly and daily scheduled imports. Hourly exceeds our maximum daily imports before all feeds are updated, but daily is not frequent enough. Thank you.
