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. 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

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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?

  6. Option to hide ongoing events from upcoming events list

    I have many events that run for many weeks or over multiple weekends. I would like an option to only show events that have not started yet (today onwards).

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Export CSV, Email, and Print functionality for Order Sales Report

    Similar to the Attendees Report, Organizers can Print, Email and Export a csv of all Attendees. Would be great to add that same functionality on the front end for the Order Sales report so that Organizers could pull that info as needed.

  10. Charge Flat Fee Per Ticket Sold

    In the current version, the admin can collect a percentage of every ticket sold or a flat fee per event purchase (e.g., a single $2 fee to buy any number of tickets for a single event). Please add your votes if you would prefer to be able to charge a flat fee per ticket sold.

  11. 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.

  14. Community > Allow each of the multiple organizers to edit an event

    Shared Event Management

    Now that we can have multiple Organizers attached to an event, it would be nice if event editing ability could be shared among multiple submitters, either as something that could be assigned via the administrative backend, or through a "share" option that the event submitter could use, similar to the share features for Google Docs. (Submitter #1 sends an invite to member #2).

  15. Support some custom HTML in event excerpts

    Allow custom HTML in the excerpts section, like WordPress posts do: https://codex.wordpress.org/Excerpt

    In list view It would be nice to be able to add links and change text size for certain items. (ex. RSVP now link)

    6 comments  ·  CSV Importer functionality  ·  Flag idea as inappropriate…  ·  Admin →

    This is something we are currently investivating to see how feasible it is. We would love to add this ability, but due to the complexity of recurrence patterns it may not be possible to import these via CSV, at least without making it so complex it has a huge learning curve and is a pain to work with. If we deem this possible then we would definitely like to build it. :)

    Thanks for sharing the idea!

    Cheers!

  17. Venue Map - all Venues

    Each venue has an address and can display a Google Map showing people where it is.
    I need a single map which displays all venues. (Perhaps restrict the map to include only venues with events in a given date range.) For the map markers, allow a different marker per category, with venue details in a pop-up box, and marker grouping in case there are several venues close to each other.
    Several GPL plugins exist to produce a decent multi-marker map. Perhaps integration with one of them?

  18. Integrate with Ticket Tailor

    Add a plugin for Ticket Tailor - https://www.tickettailor.com/ - as an alternative to Eventbrite and other ticketing solutions. They have a WordPress plugin for event ticketing and don't charge any per ticket fees like the other companies do.

    e.g. show next 3 events in category Y

  20. Option to Auto-Approve Events from Specific Users
