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.

  1. Add the option to allow the user to download the event ticket.

    Hey, I've been using your plugins for over a year now and the consistent problem of ticket emails not sending can be solved if the option to download the ticket as a pdf was made available. This would reduce the amount of emails about not receiving tickets, the user can log into their account and see the tab My Events with the tickets ready to download and resend as an email.

    I know I'm not alone who is still suffering the emails so this would be a really cool addition.

    Vote it up!!!!

    • Add a SMS Text messaging option as reminder for events

      Having an email and SMS reminder option for events would be great for teams or groups.

      • Allow file upload for pdfs

        Currently community events limits file upload to images. An additional pdf upload would be handy.

        • Combine the Advanced Filter Bar with Standard Filter Bar

          It would be great if the advanced filter bar completely replaced the standard bar once installed. This was we can maintain the functionality of both, but only have a single filter/search bar on the screen. Right now it is a bit confusing to have two separate filters. I have noticed several complains on the forums and on the feature request page stating that viewers are becoming confused by the filter options and unable to find their desired events. Although many solutions have been proposed, I think merging the two bars would mitigate a majority of the concerns and reduce space…

          • Add limit="x" option to tribe_events shortcode

            Adding a LIMIT argument to the tribe_events shortcode could work for Photo, List, Day, and Map views.

            The shortcode option in Pro is great!
            It would be even greater if there was an option to limit the shown events in the list.
            Like: [tribe_events limit="10" view="photo"]

            Than you would be able to show the Photo view for instance on the homepage only the first 3 events and on a calendar page all the events.

            Thanks!

            Kind regards,

            Roger

              Thank you for the idea! We definitely see the value in this. It has been added to our list of features we would like to implement. We thank you for your patience as we work through all of the other features that were added before this one.

              Eric from our forums shared an excellent snippet of code that allows you to alter this right now. As he notes it employs a bit of a hack, but it should work on most servers. You can paste this code in your functions.php, modify the number of events you want shown inside the code, and you’re done!

              If you have any questions or need assistance, please don’t hesitate to reach out via our forums. Cheers!

            • WooCommerce > Show Attendee Meta 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…

              • We need a possibility to block some Categories for Community Organizers (with account or anonymous).

                By blocking a category for some organizers or anonymous submitter we would still have the possibility to create exclusive calendars which will only show the events created by the admin.
                I would love to see that as an option.

                • Collect All Attendee Information on a Separate Page

                  I'm happy to see that we can now collect info from all attendees. However, it is a bit problematic to collect this information on the event page. It would be a more advantageous workflow if the users were allowed to input the attendee information on either the checkout page or a page specifically designed for this purpose. Requesting attendee information on the event page causes design conflicts and can make the page very cluttered/large depending upon the amount of tickets purchased and information requested. I highly recommend that you adjust the UX accordingly for a more user friendly experience.

                  • Sort Events by distance

                    A really useful feature that is missing is the possibility to sort the events by distance.
                    After performing a search, an user would normally expects to see the events displayed by distance (and then by date) so that the closest event is listed as first item in the list and so on...

                    • Custom Email Fields Per Event with WYSIWYG Editor

                      We've always felt that one of the weaker aspects of Event Calendar Pro is its communication capabilities. We’re currently unable to customize email messaging for each unique event. Additionally, our clients are unable to customize the standard confirmation email on their own due to their limited technical capabilities.

                      It would be extremely advantageous if there were a series of WYSIWYG editors/fields for users to create custom confirmation email messages and custom admin notification messages for each specific event.

                      Features should also include:

                      -Ability for the admin to send custom ad-hoc emails using a WYSIWYG editor

                      -Ability to send the aforementioned…

                      • Support Open Graph metadata for events

                        As an event manager / organizer we are promoting a lot of individual events on Facebook. Currently the open graph metadata is guessed by Facebook, which results in the wrong image being shown for example.

                        It would be great if proper og: metadata was generated for the event details so Facebook would pull the right data immediately.

                        • Each ticket to have multiple ticket types & cost

                          For example:

                          Ticket for an event on a given day at a particular time
                          Adult / $15
                          Child / $7

                          The only way to do this currently is to have several tickets for each type of ticket & time, meaning you could have a long list of tickets for users, confusing matters.

                          • 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 .

                            • Ability to configure end date/time for editing of ticket attendee information

                              We run an event and collect attendee information that must be submitted to the venue x days in advance of the event. It would be very helpful if we could configure an end date/time for the ability to edit attendee information for a given event/ticket.

                              Also, it appears that attendee information is currently editable indefinitely. I would recommend that the ability to edit attendee information be disabled by default once the event has occurred. Leaving open the ability to edit attendee information indefinitely opens the possibility that reports on past event attendees could have incorrect information (not likely, but possible).

                                • tribe_events shortcode support multiple categories with option for AND or OR

                                  Per https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/embedding-calendar-views-tribe_events-shortcode/#common, only 1 category can be entered in the shortcode.

                                  I'd like to be able to do something like this:
                                  `[tribe_events categories="bbq,holidays,community" and="true"]`
                                  (since the default would be `and=false` which means OR, not AND)

                                  Another name for this shortcode argument might be `filter="and"` or something else.

                                  • Make Filter Bar compatible with shortcoded calendars

                                    Would be nice to add the filter bar feature to every page with a calendar via shortcode, not only in the event page.

                                    Then it would allow you to make filtered calendars on pages, and let to the user play with the other fields to check information.

                                    • Custom Ticket Sorting in the Ticket Order Form

                                      As a site admin, I would like to define the order in which tickets are displayed on the front end of the ticket order form.

                                      There is a way to organize tickets using a function:
                                      https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/changing-the-order-of-tickets/

                                      However, the options provided are limited only to ordering tickets by price and by alphabetical order.

                                      Perhaps a drag-and-drop interface in the back-end editor or a numeric field next to each ticket would be alternatives for allowing site admins control to arrange tickets in the order they would prefer.

                                      • event aggregator categories & tags

                                        Now we can pick one category when using the aggregator, but in our calendar it's possible that a certain event belongs in more categories.
                                        This means I still have to do this manually to complete the event. Also I miss the option to activate tags. For this the same as with the categories it's handy when we could fill out more then one tag.

                                        • Start date picker week according to WordPress setting

                                          For users whose week does not start on Sunday, change the date picking calendar to display according to the WordPress "day of the week starts on" setting, so that less mistakes are made in scheduling events.

                                          Suggestion based on this thread: https://theeventscalendar.com/support/forums/topic/datepicker-in-backend-still-starts-week-on-sunday-instead-of-monday/
