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 support forums. If you use our free core plugin, you can post in our forum on WordPress.org.

  1. Add JSON+LD to [tribe_events] shortcode

    Suggestion to add JSON+LD to the [tribe_events] shortcode. While a snippet has been created to achieve this, it would be nice to see it integrated into the core pro files.

    • Notice of imported events

      Hi:

      I think it would be interesting that on the desktop of Wordpress, a notice appeared with the number of events imported and pending to publish. It would save us having to be continuously entering the list of events to check it out.

      regards

      • Add ability to import multiple iCal files simultaneously

        Currently in Event Aggregator, the iCal import is a one-by-one process. Select an iCal file, import it. Select next iCal file, import it. Etc.

        If I could select and upload multiple iCal files at once and process them simultaneously it would make a tedious process much quicker.

        Also, if you could auto-delete the iCal files from the WP Media section it would be appreciated. These files are not likely to be used as content as any page/post. Better yet, would be to upload them in some other fashion so they don't end up in the WP Media section at all.

        • Ability to filter OUT events by keyword

          Add the ability to filter OUT events by keyword in a feed. This is the converse of the existing filter functionality.

          Use Case: I have a scheduled event import of an organizations events which contains a "Monthly Meeting" that I'd prefer NOT to import. As it stands now, I need to manually trash each "Monthly Meeting" event that gets imported. Being able to set a filter to ignore "monthly meeting" would save me some tedious work.

          • password

            Hi there. It would be nice to be able to password protect the events page. Alternatively, perhaps make the events page show up in the admin so we can add WP password functionality to it.

            • Allow import of past facebook events

              Create a setting that allows for import of past events from facebook. Benefit is that it creates a robust history of events/organizers/venues. It also populates the calendar historically. All of this supports the credibility of the calendar

              • Same filters for [tribe_events] as for [tribe_mini_calendar]

                For [tribe_mini_calendar] shortcode we have a host of filter options such as city, ZIP, tag, category, etc. but for the [tribe_events] shortcode we only have category, featured, and date. It would be great to see all the other filter options on the [tribe_events] shortcode, as well

                • Feature request: Attendee list extension in Admin

                  Thread in support forum (december 2016 and still nothing has happened to the inacceptable attendee list view... had to custom code it all so clients can actually work with that half baked piece of code..):
                  https://theeventscalendar.com/support/forums/topic/feature-request-attendee-list-extension-in-admin/

                  1. Request:
                  Currently as also mentioned in this thread:
                  https://theeventscalendar.com/support/forums/topic/attendee-list-add-guest-name-column/

                  there is no possiblity to see the names of the attendees, if entered on checkout, in the attendee list. Instead we see purchaser's name. Useless.

                  Why is that? Isn’t this the attendee list??
                  Also there should be a possiblity to enter or modify the attendee’s names at a later time, directly within the woocommerce…

                  • Add to cart with 0 tickets selected - fix woocommerce verification

                    My suggestion for a solution:
                    instead of setting a minimum quantity of 1 as a default value, I’d recommend adding an info message, when the user tries to add 0 tickets to cart reading the following:
                    Please select the desired amount of tickets first, then click the add to cart button again. Thank you.

                    Or something alike.
                    This message should be in the form of the common woocommerce error notices , that also appear in usual product pages when trying to add the amount of 0 items to cart.

                    It is als not a good idea to set 1 as…

                      • Add true Subscribe Functionality for iCal & Google

                        Downloading an iCal file is NOT THE SAME as a true subscribe to calendar function where users calendars are updated automatically with new events, changes to events and so forth. It's a total disappointment to find out that the other suggestion was closed when it the suggested feature was clearly not implemented. Having a static download is actually worse because users think they've subscribed and never get updates and have no reason to believe that they aren't getting the latest info.

                        • Show Number of Events in Filter

                          Dynamic event count for filters, similar to:
                          - SHIRTS (23)
                          - SHORTS (15)
                          - PANTS (6)
                          - HATS (31)

                          These filters would change as other options are selected, as seen on Amazon and other major sites.

                            On every events page there should be a section where you could scroll through the rest of the events without leaving the page, and you should be able to scroll through them like in rotation mode with left and right arrows.

                              It would be good to have like 3 or 4 visible events with the ability to scroll right or left to get to the next 3 or 4. Like have a left and right arrow to rotate through the next series of events.

                                Importing Tickets via CSV is possible and functioning very good. But i use a picture for the Tickets which will be send to the customer. Also i collect Customer Information for each attendee from a predefinded selection.

                                It would be very very nice if it could be possible to import also the Picture for the Tickets via CSV an to Import which predefined selection for the Attendee Information should be taken for the Tickets

                                    • Display simultaneous events in Week View without overlap

                                      Currently, simultaneous events in the Week View display by default as overlapping bubbles.

                                      This obscures the title and other information which users need to decide if they want to learn more by hovering or clicking.

                                      The Month View currently handles this situation well by stacking the events.

                                      Why not make the Week View handle it the same way?

                                      • enable selection of multiple saved fieldsets

                                        When creating custom attendee information, enable the ability to select more than one saved fieldset. Right now there is only the option to select one, and then the ability to add saved fieldsets goes away. I'd like to be able to add multiple (such as Guest Contact & Meal Preference).

                                        • Sub-Events, Child Events, Sessions Events

                                          Add support for parent/child relationship between individual events.

                                          Two potential use cases found in the support forums.

                                          Case 1:

                                          Create events with individual sessions. The parent event might be a conference or an all-day meeting, and the child events would be individual sessions within that parent event.

                                          This would allow users to RSVP to the parent event and individual event sessions.

                                          Case 2:

                                          Create events with individual sub-events. The parent event might be an international seminar and the sub-events would be national level seminars. Those may have sub-events at the local or state level.

                                          This would allow users to identify…
