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 provide an option (maybe an extension) to use abbreviations in US & Canadian state/province names

    Please provide an option (maybe an extension) to use abbreviations in US & Canadian state/province names: New Hampshire (NH), South Carolina (SC), British Columbia (BC), Prince Edward Island (PE).
    Many websites (including ours) use the abbreviations instead of the default full state name, which is a clumsy workaround and results in a dotted line under SC, BC, etc. (unable to reproduce this here).

  2. Add dates to tooltip in "Display all events with the same venue" extension

    The tooltip now displays:
    Event (1)
    Event (2)
    Event (3)
    Address: 123 Main St (No city)
    Would like to see:
    Event (1) ... Date
    Event (2) ... Date
    Event (3) ... Date
    Venue/City/ST

  4. Allow save custom recurrence rule set and apply to new event

    I'd like to be able to create a set of recurrence rules, with both regular occurrences and exclusions - and then save them as a custom named ruleset that I can apply to another event.

    We have many events that run on a regular basis outside of school term-times. We can manually exclude the dates that fall within school holidays, but it would be a massive timesaver to only have to do this once and save it as for example "school holidays 2018" so that we can apply this custom set of rules to any other event. This has broader…

  5. Add option to reorder zip and city for certain countries

    In quite a few european countries, the usual (and also "correct" in terms of what postal services expect on an envelope) way to write addresses is like this:

    Venue Name
    Street 23
    12345 City
    Country

    While the notation of street and number ("123, Park Avenue" vs. "Hauptstraße 17") isn’t an issue (since it’s only one field in the database), addresses like "Berlin, 12345 Deutschland" (instead of the correct "12345 Berlin, Deutschland" are quite disturbing.

    I am aware that src/views/modules/address.php could be customized by the user, but I would strongly suggest to add an option to reorder zip and city. This…

  6. Show Attendee Details on QR Scan

    Having the ability to check-in tickets via the new QR scan app is helpful, however all of our tickets have options available via Attendee Details that need to be shown. Shirt size for instance. If a summary of these details were displayed on QR scan it would stream line our check-in process.

  7. customize shortcode colors

    I used the WP customizer to style the default event page, but those settings don’t carry over when using shortcodes on other website pages. Without being able to set the style (primarily the bg colors for tables, title colors, cal info text etc) for the various calendar instances when using shortcodes, I'm unable to use them at all since they don't match the branding of my client site (currently using Avada theme) and are thus difficult to read by default. The purpose of me using a premium plug-in like this is to avoid having to customize theme files and stylesheets,…

  8. Scan tickets for specific event only

    The app is connected to the store with an API key. However with an event for today and one for tomorrow, people with tickets for tomorrow can attend today. There should be a way of limiting the scans to a selected event

  9. Allow people to view ticket type when using Event Tickets Plus App to check in

    When using your awesome new app to scan tickets we cannot view what ticket type is being checked in.
    Unfortunately I'm finding this out the day before our large event which has multiple ticket types available.
    A simple notice when it scans to say what ticket (type) it is would be perfect.

  10. Enable Attendee Information on WooCommerce Tickets

    The ability to collect the same attendee information when using the WooCommerce product of an Event Ticket.

    There are times when I want to allow users to purchase tickets on the event single page as well as on a dedicated conference page. However, the attendee information is not available on the WooCommerce product of the Event ticket. As these are instantions of the same ticket, the attendee information should captured in a consistent manner and available in the attendee list.

  11. Collect Attendee Information for Community tickets

    I would love to have community tickets being able to collect attendee information and have all the same functionality as if you were creating an event from the admin (set fields, use saved fieldsets) and all that good stuff the admins have. I think it's a bit tedious that someone submits an event with tickets but doesn't have any attendee information associated to that ticket. I feel like this feature should be automatic or should have implemented awhile back!

  12. More sophisticated related events results

    This is an idea to improve the “related events” feature on Event Calendar.

    As of today, this feature basically only relies on categories and tags to suggest related events, which is very basic to say the least. There are free WP Plugin out there like “Yet Another Related Posts Plugin” that are based on a customizable algorithm to suggest related posts based on more than simple categories and tags.

    For instance, I could imagine that in addition to categories and tags, related events could be based on geography (ex: other events in Colorado / other events within 80 miles from…

  13. Community Events > option to import from CSV

    Community Events is pretty well done, except if you have more than a few events (or venues, or organizers). It's a real turnoff trying to get larger organizations to use it and not to be able to import. How about adding that option in settings - to expose the importer?

  14. Improved Availability Settings

    Offer settings for stock management so that the user can decide how they would like the programme to behave.

    E.g. for us, if an attendee is moved/deleted/refunded, we would ALWAYS want the stock/availability to increase back (not sure why anyone wouldn't to be hones). You don't offer this an an option so we have to manually check every time what has happened (and manually adjust if necessary).

  15. Add Ability to Limit Submissions to Users with Specific Roles

    Requested Feature:
    Build in a security option to restrict access to members of a certain role or roles.

    Challenge:
    Currently Community Events has two options to control what site users can submit events for inclusion on the calendar. Allow all registered users to submit events or allow anonymous user submissions.

    Scenario:
    Our organization has leadership positions that are voted upon by the membership. These elections are annual and therefore, the positions turn over regularly. For the benefit of these elected users, most of which who know nothing about WordPress, we need a clean and simple to use “form” that allows…

  16. custom coloring for shortcode tribe_events_list

    Be able to change the colors on the tribe_events_list shortcode date graphic and event title without having to use custom CSS or other coding. Or provide a support answer for this issue with the CSS required so that we can easily grab, modify and paste into our website custom CSS.

  17. Mass export all attendees

    An option to export a list of all event attendees in Wordpress to a CSV file, with cells for date, event info, registration info, etc. The list is available as a Wordpress export file, but is downloaded as a WP XML.

  18. Bring an Android & iOS app for adding Events directly to website.

    Greetings,
    I am writing this to give you a suggestion to develop an Android and iOS app for your Event Plugin. I am a freelancer an often use this plugin for my clients as I love it. Unfortunately, Many Clients do not want to login to their dashboard to add an event. They often say if there is any way to add events from mobile phone or if they can add an event on Google Calendar, it should be added on Website Events page too on auto. So I face such feedback. Today I thought to give you a suggestion…

  19. allow user to save/star events

    Allow users to save, star or favourite events. So they can plan which events they would like to attend. This would be a huge value-add to the end user where there are a lot of events to choose from and they may want to attend a few.

  20. Events categories and events dates in the permalink structure

    For a better SEO friendly URL structure I suggest the customization of the permalink structure including the category for the single event and maybe the date of th event too.
