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. Make it possible to print calendar

    For folks who send out calendars via PDF or need to make photocopies, it would be great to have a printable version.

  2. Reorganize how recurring events show up only in admin area

    My customer has a very large database of events (currently about 35.000). Many of them are recurring events, with quite some recurring over several weeks each day! This makes it hard:
    - to identify the actual event (as in the understanding of our client the event is WHAT happens and not WHEN, so differentiation by dates and showing all of the does not make much sense
    - to keep an overview of all current/coming events, as basically you have 1 same event there over several pages.
    - edit the right (first occurrence) of the event, if something changes later.

  3. One event with multiple venues

    If I have three venues that have the same event it would be nice to list all three venues instead of three events.

    Thank you guys so much for this idea, and explaining the various use cases where it would be helpful. This has been some tremendous feedback, and helps us understand how best to address your needs.

    Some of you will benefit best from our upcoming templating feature, which would allow you to easily duplicate event details from one event to another while changing only the things that vary, such as a venue. Others will no doubt enjoy the ability to link arbitrary events together as one event series. This might be ideal for conventions and large events with multiple days and facilities. This too is an upcoming feature.

    The rest would clearly enjoy the ability to have just one event with multiple venues, as you can do with organizers. Thanks to all of your excellent feedback this too is now a feature on our roadmap. It will likely be implemented as…

  4. Recurring Event Support for Tickets

    Currently our WooTickets plugin does not work fully with recurring events, and users can only purchase tickets for the most upcoming event in a series. Would it be useful to you to combine the power of WooTickets with the PRO recurring events feature?

  5. Charge for event submission and premium/featured events

    Develop a package pricing option where users could add a free event or premium event listing. Also allow for a membership option where event promoters could pay a flat monthly / annual fee and enter as many premium events as they would like.

  6. Sorting for additional Fields

    Id like to be able to move where the field appears in the backend instead of the newest item always being last.

    For example I had a client ask me to add times to the opening acts. There were already 3 opening acts set up within the calendar with different atributes for each.

    Since each new time atribute matched with an opening artist I made sense to group it with that artist like the rest of the atributes, not have all the times at the end of the list so I had to re-input all the opening acts.

  8. Can add RSVP and Tribe PayPal tickets to Community Events without Event Tickets Plus or WooCommerce

    I want to be able to add RSVP (and ideally Tribe PayPal) tickets to Community Events form without needing WooCommerce (especially) or ET+ (ideally)
