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. Increase ticket capacity when after refunding and restocking via WooCommerce

    It would be nice if I didn't have to increase the ticket capcity after refunding and restocking a ticket via WooCommerce. This seems like it should be automated.

  2. Show Attendee Details on QR Scan

    Having the ability to check-in tickets via the new QR scan app is helpful, however all of our tickets have options available via Attendee Details that need to be shown. Shirt size for instance. If a summary of these details were displayed on QR scan it would stream line our check-in process.

  3. Offline App CheckIn

    We have a poor signal strength at the front door of our venue, so we couldn’t use the app to check anyone in.
    It would be really really GREAT if the app had some sort of offline mode including a list of ticket purchasers. So before every Event i download the final list of purchases and can check them in.

  4. Scan tickets for specific event only

    The app is connected to the store with an API key. However with an event for today and one for tomorrow, people with tickets for tomorrow can attend today. There should be a way of limiting the scans to a selected event

  5. Allow people to view ticket type when using Event Tickets Plus App to check in

    When using your awesome new app to scan tickets we cannot view what ticket type is being checked in.
    Unfortunately I'm finding this out the day before our large event which has multiple ticket types available.
    A simple notice when it scans to say what ticket (type) it is would be perfect.

  6. Enable Attendee Information on WooCommerce Tickets

    The ability to collect the same attendee information when using the WooCommerce product of an Event Ticket.

    There are times when I want to allow users to purchase tickets on the event single page as well as on a dedicated conference page. However, the attendee information is not available on the WooCommerce product of the Event ticket. As these are instantions of the same ticket, the attendee information should captured in a consistent manner and available in the attendee list.

  7. Attendee Search iOS app

    As an event organizer I need the ability to search attendee's within the app. Far to often people forget their ticket or it goes to their spam folder. I need a quick and easy way to search their name within the app.

  8. Tribe Commerce - Allow user to purchase multiple ticket type

    Tribe Commerce - Currently only one ticket type can be purchased at one time. Would be awesome if the user was able to purchase multiple ticket types in one purchase e.g x2 Adult Tickets and x2 Child Tickets.

  9. Improved Availability Settings

    Offer settings for stock management so that the user can decide how they would like the programme to behave.

    E.g. for us, if an attendee is moved/deleted/refunded, we would ALWAYS want the stock/availability to increase back (not sure why anyone wouldn't to be hones). You don't offer this an an option so we have to manually check every time what has happened (and manually adjust if necessary).

  10. Application of discount codes to specific groups of tickets.

    As an example - the ability to apply a family discount. Define what ticket types and quantity are required to validate the discount. If that discount could be applied automatically that would be even better.

    It means that rather than having to add 'Family' ticket which can only be deducted from stock levels manually, individual tickets will be counted automatically.

  11. Ticket upsells / custom additional charges

    It would be good to be able to have the special information you can add to each ticket monetised. So for instance we sell tickets in a brewery for a special steak night. We would like to be able to have the option on the same ticket to select with drinks or without drinks but the option for with drinks to add £5 on to the ticket price. This way we can sell a smaller array of tickets, which helps out capacity management, but with options that are either non monetised or that can be used as upgrades to that…

  12. Mass export all attendees

    An option to export a list of all event attendees in Wordpress to a CSV file, with cells for date, event info, registration info, etc. The list is available as a Wordpress export file, but is downloaded as a WP XML.

  13. Autofill the Event Tickets header image

    Make it possible to add the WooCommerce Product featured image from within the ticket meta-block in the event. I would be perfectly happy with either of three solutions:
    1 reusing the header image
    2 reusing the featured image of the event
    3 selecting a separate image for just this reason.

    But can understand if option 1 might conflict with how the image might be used otherwise and option 2 might conflict with the fact that the ticket is stored basically separate from the event, so perhaps option 3 should be it and will save me a lot of time anyway.…

  14. Allow default ticket end date to be edited

    By default, if no end date for a ticket is selected, ET & ET+ auto populate the end date/time with the event end date/time. For our purposes as a busy theater, this makes no sense as it allows people to buy tickets online after the event has already started. This means we need to manually add an end date/time to each ticket which is very labor intensive.

    I would like to suggest that the ability to change the default ticket end date/time behavior be editable, either via some sort of settings option on the frontend or via hooks in the…

  15. Expand bulk print/export attendee actions & check-in functionalities beyond open "edit_others_posts" capability

    Bulk print/export attendee actions and check-in functionalities are for "editothersposts" capability which makes it too open when creating a custom editor-like role that should only be allowed to access their own content. The bulk attendee actions and check-in are also provided for community ticket event organizers so why can't the same access be given to subscriber-like roles in Events Tickets Plus?

  16. Add additional filter for 'tickets/email.php' email

    In the file /src/Tribe/Meta/Render.php add an additional filter the meta data to be transformed before the email is sent.

    $meta_data = apply_filters( 'tribe_event_tickets_plus_email_meta_data', $meta_data, $item );

    Why?
    I have a meta field that stores the user's ID instead of their name so I can use that throughout the application to grab additional information related to the user. So when the email goes out it only shows their user id instead of showing the name of the user.
    Adding this filter will allow me to transform that id into whatever content I would like.

  17. Add option to disable the Attendee Registration page

    The new Attendee Registration page is great for people who are just using TEC, but those who have other ecommerce flows on their website, might want to use the existing one.

    Please create a filter to allow us to disable this feature, and collect attendee data our own way.

  18. Add additional filter for attendees table to allow searching by custom metadata

    In the file /event-tickets/src/Tribe/Attendees_Table.php on line 805 there is a filter of tribe_tickets_search_attendees_by which allows adding additional searchable fields for attendees. If you can add one more additional filter for the $items then we would be able to search by any custom meta data that applies to that attendee.

    Here is an example:

    New Filter that would go on line 806 (or before the other filter, doesn't really matter)

    $items = apply_filters( 'tribe_tickets_search_attendees', $items, $search );

    Then in my functions.php I have:
    ```
    /*
    * Add ticket ID as searchable
    /
    addfilter('tribeticketssearchattendeesby', function ($search

  19. Save attendee information in woocommerce customer account for future orders

    If a customer would like to order a ticket more often, he must fill in any custom attendee fields again and again. In our case (a solution for a customer) this is very complicated with 8 fields. It would be very convenient if the inputs of these fields could be saved for future orders. It is conceivable that the attendee data from the last order could be inserted at the push of a button.

  20. Ticket sales via Stripe without Woo

    The recently released Event Tickets with Paypal is great, but purchasers still have to leave your web site and go out to Paypal. It would be great if this solution also included Stripe, which allows you to have the credit card form on the order page.
