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.

I suggest you ...

  1. Hide options without upcoming events

    If a filter option does not have a corresponding upcoming event, hide it from the filter itself.

    For example, if I have created a venue called "Alozaina" and there are no upcoming events using that venue, do not show that as an option in the Venues filter.

  3. Set separate event recurrence limit for contributors

    This would be for Community + Pro. As admin I'd naturally use the uppermost limit for neverending events, but for community contributors, a smaller max time period and/or total number of events would be great. Really, just having a max number of total events allowed.

  4. Event Tickets, Zapier, Gotowebinar

    Can we have a Zapier integration that can zap a ticket registration through to Goto webinar once someone has registered for the webinar on the events calendar that are also registered on the goto webinar site.

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

    Cheers!

  7. Community Events > Duplicate events

    I'd love to see it in the frontend submission of Community Events.

  8. Approved events that are edited should revert to Pending/Draft instead of Published.

    When a user submits an event to the Community Events form, the event goes into Pending/Draft as I have set in the admin panel. However, if a user goes back to edit an Approved/Published event, it should also automatically get withdrawn from the site and submitted for approval.

  9. 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.

  10. Add a 'Claim Listing' feature for users on the front end.

    It would be good if users could Claim a listing if they are the true owners. Currently events can be set up by anybody but it is not easy for the true owner to Claim That listing. With community events it is too easy for anyone to pretend to be the owner of an event.

  11. 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.

  12. Shared media library for community events submissions

    On many websites most of the events are being created by users.
    They upload the events and an according image via the Event Submit page:
    http://www.domain.com/events/community/add

    Unfortunately this unneccessarily blows up the media library with the same images (10 events of one band = 10 equal images in the media library).

    It would be great to let the user select his own (security!) images via the media manager.

    Here are two links with code snipplets that is maybe a good start to implement this:

    Restricting access to only images that have been uploaded by the user:

    Integrate the media…

  13. Add support for EDD

    Hoping at some point support for EDD is added so we can use the great functionality of Community Tickets with EDD.

  14. Allow user to alter the subject text for the event submission notification email

    I'd like to be able to alter the subject field of the notification email generated when a user submits an event. Specifically, I'd like to change the middle part that is currently hardcoded as "Community Events Submission". I'd like to retain the ability to have the other parts of the subject, ie. the prepended site name and the appended event title.

    Thanks for your suggestion. Please reference https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/change-the-wording-of-any-bit-of-text-or-string/ — That specific bit of text comes from /wp-content/plugins/the-events-calendar-community-events/src/Tribe/Main.php and has the ‘tribe-events-community’ text domain.

    A filter could probably be added though. Please share additional comments if desired.

  15. 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?

  16. Set default venue

    We have multiple feeds being imported
    Most of them have the same venue all the time, some are online webinars, and have no location. So we have to go back and fix those all the time.
    Is it possible to have an additional field in import settings, that will allow you to select a default venue/location per imported feed?

    Thank you

  17. A 'hide past events' option on plugin settings

    Some companies need to hide the past events from your agenda, keeping the focus only in future events. The Events Calendar PRO do not have this option.

  18. Presales/Pre-event registration/Place deposit for a ticket

    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.

  19. 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.
