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. Enable Additional Fields support in Other URL imports

    I believe that the use case is a valuable one. We have a group event calendar whereby having Additional Fields import capability could be utilized to easily customize various event listings coming in from various "Other URL" scheduled imports from participating organizations. Everyone would use the same set of Additional Fields to specify information about their event. We would then use these field values as variables for controlling the ultimate display of the event item at runtime.

      • 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…

        • "Hide" event categories in Filter Bar

          PLEASE make it so that an unused category (no events associated) is not displayed in the filter bar drop down. It looks unprofessional if I have categories that can be chosen with no events. Thanks.

          • Resize pictures automatically and speed up pages

            The events calendar has options to show events in widgets and in the calendar. There it always uses the standard wordpress pictures and does not resize them. This is a problem for users, as they have to load a lot of data. It also reduces the page rank at Google.
            Therefore I want the plugin to resize the images automatically to save data and rank better in Google.

            • Add unique classes to each month title in span.tribe-events-list-separator-month

              I’m using JS to add the name of the month as a class to the span.tribe-events-list-separator-month

              The goal is to use custom graphics for the month headings instead of text. The JS I’m using is not very foolproof, and only fires when the page is finished loading. I had to hide the “next/prev events” buttons, because they reload the page with ajax, so my JS doesn’t get triggered, and the month headings then “disappear”.

              If that span had a class with the month name or month number in it already, I wouldn’t need the JS, and it would work perfectly.

                    • Add names/aliases to imports

                      iCalendar imports don't have the ability to be named, which makes working with them confusing – I have a whole bunch of imports called "calendar", and I don't know which is which.

                      • Extend date range in event aggregator to allow more than the next 3 months to be imported

                        I have imports to make from calendars which are only seasonal, e.g. some special events in september only. Unfortunately I cannot aggregate them because i can only go 3 months into the future.

                        More options would be appreciated here, at least 12 months (or even unlimited if possible and of course on your own risk). I hacked it in now myself but that's not the best solution obviously.

                        And would the amount limit not still be in place?

                        (and for the record, I am using the custom url to import from other tribe event calendars)

                        • Sort events in API

                          The sorting is lost if there any filtering params for /events API endpoint. Ex: https://wpshindig.com/wp-json/tribe/events/v1/events?start_date=2018-01-01+00:00:00 it starts with the events in Jan, even if there are events for Jun/Jul

                          Here's a example which the API doesn’t support now:
                          – show events between May 1, 2018 – May 31, 2018 sorted from newest to oldest. A parameters like order=desc would fix this

                          There are more details in this thread https://wordpress.org/support/topic/sort-events-in-api

                          • Make enabling/disabling QR codes event specific.

                            I love the ability to turn it on and off for the whole site but in my case it would be nice have the option to use it for some of our events turn it off for others.

                              I have a single event with a large number of tickets for different categories, (lets say Music/Art/Education etc).

                              On my website, I would like to advertise the relevent tickets on each page as theres currently no way to filter out the tickets.

                              This would be a really handy feature.

                                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…

                                  • 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

                                    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…

                                      • have an option for setting defaults for the meta fields. Such as defaulting to "All Day Event"

                                        It would be great if the Event Settings included options to set defaults. I'd love to be able to default new events to ALL DAY, rather than having to check that box every time.

                                        • Add text that the user would see prior to Start Sale date

                                          Add one text field to the ticket area that would incorporate the "Start Sale" field to display a message to the visitor if they view the event before that date.

                                          As it is now, the visitor reads about the event, sees all the When and Where details... and then wonders what they're missing and why they can't purchase/sign up. All they need is a message: "Registration will begin on %StartSale% -- please check back!"
