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. Please allow passbook support

    It would be great if the QR tickets which are offered in he ticket pro plugin could be supported by passbook. It's so convenient. Most of my mobile ticket purchasers are on iPhone so it would be great to offer this function and the android equivalent.

    • Add "Frequency" to bulk actions for scheduled imports

      The ability to select multiple scheduled imports and switch the frequency (daily, hourly, weekly, etc) would be great. I often need to update several imports at a time depending on seasons and going one-by-one is rather tedious.

      • Option to remove events not present in a reimported iCal feed

        This option would allow for events that get deleted from an iCal feed to be automatically deleted from The Events Calendar as well. So if you are importing an .ics calendar from a different site, such as Google Calendar or Outlook 365, and you delete the event there it will be deleted from the The Events Calendar on the next import.

        The iCal format is dedicated to event creation, and does not contain any data on events that have been deleted. However, with this option checked the iCal Importer could assume that any event no longer present in a given…

        • Filter events by date range / day on single venue / organiser pages

          It would be nice to be able to filter the events in a single venue by date.
          Consider in the case of a trade show / festival / university model which may have multiple stages / theatres with multiple events occurring over several days. It would be good to display these both in a page and in a widget.

          • Customizable permalink structure for individual events

            Allow customization of the permalink structure of individual events. It would be awesome to have the ability to enable permalinks that mirror those used by other posts within Wordpress. For example, the ability to have a URL such as http://www.website.com/events/2016/06/08/event-title/. This would be a big help in avoiding conflicting URLs for repeating events.

            • allow the option to add attendee information to the emailed tickets and admin confirmation.

              Thank you for the ability to collect Attendee Information i.e., First and Last Name of multiple tickets to the actual purchase process prior to check out. Now, how about an option to add that collected information to either the Attendee Ticket and / or the Administrator email?

              • Past Events Widget

                It would be awesome to have a Past Events widget to show previous events. My business uses the ECP to show all of our tournaments, and people always want to see the results, which are embedded on each event page. A widget to automatically show the previous (1-20) events would save sooooo much time! Thanks for your consideration!

                  This is a great idea and we really appreciate you sharing it. It is very possibly something we could build as an extension or an enhancement we could include in of our feature updates. We will continue keeping an eye on this, and slot it as soon as we can amongst our hundreds of other great feature ideas.

                  Cheers!

                • Divi Integration

                  Divi is currently one of the best-selling Wordpress themes. It integrates smoothly with WooCommerce but currently doesn't integrate well with The Events Calendar.

                    Hello all,

                    Thank you for pitching in.
                    We have many of our customers and team members using the Events Calendar alongside Divi with great results.

                    As long as the proper template is used in Events → Settings → Display , things work great.

                    Furthermore, our upcoming 4.3 version of Events Calendar Pro will include full calendar shortcodes that will allow customers to include the full calendar to the page of their choice.

                    Please let us know if there are still additional integration needs

                    This allows you to create an event with a ticket. The ticket has a suggested price, but allows the buyer to buy it for whatever price they want. In essence it is a donation for an event

                    • include WP post_meta fields in keyword search

                      Right now, The Events Calendar keyword search searches the Title, Post Body, and Post Excerpt.
                      I suggest that you add the option to include selected WP post-meta fields (custom fields) to the keyword search.

                      This would be extremely helpful, as a number of sites include various page information in custom post_meta fields. I would suggest it not search post_meta by default, but include the option to select which post_meta fields are included in the keyword search.

                            • Re-think the SEO to cut down on duplicate content and/or options for canonical URLs

                              Idea: Re-think the SEO to cut down on duplicate content and/or options for canonical URLs

                              The current setup means that recurring events are classed as duplicate content by search engines. This is terrible for SEO. There needs to be a way to fix this issue, and I can think of 2:

                              1. Set up the future recurring events so that they all use the same URL. The events on my site are not different year-to-year, so there is no reason the page/content/URL must be different. A single URL would suffice, but placed in the correct recurring dates in the calendar…

                              • Google Calendar Sync using Calendar ID + API

                                I'd like TEC and Google Calendar to be 1 and the same, only that TEC is responsive on our site. The administration is already used to updating google calendar. TEC would be perfect if it had this. I've found a plugin that does what I'm talking about https://wordpress.org/plugins/google-calendar-events/ but it's honestly not as flushed out as TEC(especially in terms of responsiveness). It uses the calendar ID and calendar api key. I think you guys could do what they've done better. It would be awesome if this came out as a feature. Thanks!

                                  That’s a great idea! Thanks for the specificity. This is something we have talked about some, and are keen to see how many folks are interested in it. We really appreciate your posting the idea here.

                                  You might also want to check out our Event Aggregator service (https://theeventscalendar.com/product/event-aggregator/) and see if that would meet your needs. It allows you to import events from Google Calendar into The Events Calendar and even has automatic imports so you can keep things up to date.

                                • Add two lines for address (as eventbrite has two lines)

                                  When importing from eventbrite, address line 1 and 2 are combined with no space between. At least a space should be put between them when combining, and it would be great to have the two address line fields separate.

                                  • Organize events by hour/venue. In a day view, rows are hours and columns are venues.

                                    To better present events for festivals with multiple venues being run simultaneously, it be would be nice to have a day view where events are laid in a hours/venues matrix. Rows being the hours, columns being the venues.

                                    • Enable SSL option for Events Calendar pages

                                      Because the Events Calendar is URL based, rather than pages, it is difficult to specify that calendar pages should be secured with SSL. How about a settings option for the events calendar pages to be SSL if the user has a certificate installed?

                                      • Display Google map while adding EVENT LOCATION DETAILS to allow to check that the location on the map is correct before submitting the event

                                        Display a Google map aside of the EVENT LOCATION DETAILS on the add new/edit Event page, so one can check that the location address has no errors or misinterpretations by Google map and one can check the map if it is correct before submitting the event.

                                          Add the ability to place a deposit as part of a pre-event registration.

                                          I.E. "Secure a spot at this year's Event with a $50.00 deposit"

                                          This would also require a way to pay the Balance of the Event cost at a later date.
