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. Option to Auto-Approve Events from Specific Users

    I have my community calendar set to moderate all incoming events. I would like to have the option to auto-approve events by specific users that I trust.

    • Allow paper/non-virtual tickets

      We mail out physical tickets for our events (there are a few reasons for that, besides we don't have a scanning / check-in option available at the moment). There is a small delivery charge that we add to the purchased order unless the ticket is picked up from the office. The shipping option is not available if the ticket is virtual. I like the virtual option too for when tickets are bought closer to the event and we don't have time to mail them out. Hope this helps. Thanks!

      • Add tribe_edit_category capability for user roles

        Allow control of category capability as you do for venue, organizer, e.g. edit_tribe_organizer, so we can prevent editors from adding or changing calendar categories.

        • create a search bar widget

          Make the events search bar a widget. It’s such a great tool, but it’s hidden on my homepage with no easy way to put it out front where it really belongs.

          • 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

            • Community Events > Put only new users events in Pending Review

              In WP you can set it so that new commenters on your site get put in the moderation queue. Once a commenter has a previously approved post they can bypass the moderation queue and it will get posted immediately.

              I would like a similar feature with Community Events, where once a user has a previously approved event it will bypass Pending Review.

              • Option to display distance in filter bar as range slider

                Like price filter, which have the option to select the price with the range slider, would be great to have the same option for the distance filter.

                • Event Sponsors

                  Many events have lots of sponsors in order to make them a success. Many events are supported by sponsors, generally financially and in return ask for advertising and promotion at an event or through the events media - website, Facebook, flyers etc.

                  It would be great if you could add sponsors to the single event page, with the sponsor name, logo and weblink.

                  • Make Event featured image dimensions adjustable (thumbnail, medium, full)

                    Standard behaviour is that it uses the full size. Adjusting is possible via theming and page template, but in most themes this is easily adjustable, so why not here.
                    AND: less work in case of a major update.

                      • Exclude past events from the main wordpress search results.

                        I want to exclude past events from the main wordpress search results. I found others with the same request.

                        • Venue picker: show venue city, state to disambiguate venues with same name in different cities

                          The venue picker lists all existing venues by name, but does not indicate the city/state for each venue. The result is that venues with the same name but in different cities will be indistinguishable on the list.

                          Example: churches, schools, synagogues have common names that reoccur from city to city. Rather than working around this by modifying the venue name itself [eg, "St. Luke's Lutheran Church (Seattle)", "St. Luke's Lutheran Church (Federal Way)"], it would be nice to keep the venue titles clean and instead disambig based on the city, state.

                            For SEO purposes, remove /category/ from urls like mysite.com/events/category/music/ for SEO Purposes. It should be mysite.com/events/music/ instead.

                              • Add a "redo search when map moved" feature similar to yelp.com's search results page

                                When moving or zooming the map it'd be great to have an option to have the list underneath the map refresh to only show the events relevant to what's being displayed in the map. For an example of this just see yelp.com's search results.

                                • Integration with EventFul

                                  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!

                                  • Add 'today' option to the admin page filter

                                    At the Filters & Columns area of the Events admin page, the user may add a 'Start date' filter and save it. This is convenient for future use. It would be even better to give the saved filter the ability to use today's date as a parameter.

                                    But when choosing the start date 'date' from the dropdown calendar, there is no option to choose 'today' as the date. Another solution may be to add 'On and After Today' and 'On and Before Today' to the 'Start Date' dropdown menu.
