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.

      Beaver Builder's Page Builder is hugely popular with over 275K downloads. Right now the widget don't work completely in the page builder. Some functionality is missing and there are bugs.

      • Mark import as featured

        It would be great if imports could be marked as featured so that all events from that source get featured tag rather than having to go in and manually mark them.

        • Add an option to adjust ticketing to allow for a faster check-in

          We recently built a site for a client using Events Tickets Plus- client checks in over 500 users a day but the response time for checking in was slow to load, so we stripped all of the backend out of the response showing only a large green confirmation message for attendee being checked in successfully or a large red confirmation for an already checked-in ticket, reducing the scan to check-in time to under 2 seconds. If you'd like us to share the snippets we would be happy to do so but this would really be a great option in the…

          • Events List Widget Beaver Builder Compatibility – Categories Filter Not Showing in Widget

            When I add your events list widget to Beaver Builder layout, the categories i’ve added do not show as filter options. However, when I add the events list widget to a wordpress sidebar, it works.

            Shortcodes do seem to work and resolve the problem, but they are not an option for a client that is not tech savvy. So I would like to get this resolved if possible.

            Here is what I see when I add events list widget to a wp footer widget area:

            • suppress category import in Event Aggregator

              When importing events, the assigned category often comes with it. I believe this is other wordpress sites. I would like a way to suppress importing other calendar's categories. Just makes a mess and then I have to delete the category.

              • Feature event thumbnail link

                Hi,

                first of all The Events Calendar is really great plugin.

                I am using for all events the function Feature Event to show the thumbnail picture in the widget area. Right now I can go the event detail only if I click on the Event name. What I need is to have link also on the thumbnail picture. Especialy on mobile users try to click on picture but there is no link.

                Can you please add this feature?

                • Add an option to allow recurrence description for event titles in lists and calendar

                  There are 2 types of recurring events - those that are part of a course-type series where a person pays once, starts on the first day but we still want to show all class instances on the calendar (to show for example that a room is booked). If the course dates are not 'all-day' over sequential days, then we need to use the recurring events feature (e.g. every Tuesday from 10-11am for 6 weeks).

                  The other recurring event type is where an event simply gets repeated regularly (eg. a mother & toddler group that takes place every Wednesday at 9am).…

                    Right now an event that starts at 6am and 6:15am will appear in the same slot.

                    • Add an opt-in checkbox for RSVP confirmation email

                      We'd like to add the emails of people who RSVP to our MailChimp lists, but we would need them to opt-in first. We want to do this through the RSVP confirmation email, rather than asking for emails of all attendees, which doesn't work because then we'd be asking the registrant to subscribe friends to a list. So we would need a checkbox on the front end with an editable message, and for that to come through on the export.

                        • Sort Scheduled Imports Alphabetically

                          I would like to be able to sort my scheduled imports alphabetically. With the current order of ‘last added’, it’s hard for me to review who I’ve already created a feed for.

                          I want to be able to look at all my import sources alphabetically so that I can determine which ones I've already created.

                          Currently, the only method of sorting is by 'last import'

                          • unmarry featured events from stickied events (or at least provide that option)

                            I make extensive use of the featured events option, but I really, really don't want those events stickied. I want them listed in chronological order, because I also run a lot of more regular events and the calendar is confusing to read when the events don't appear in order of start time. I can already do that by unchecking the "sticky in month view" option after it auto-checks, but the current CSS for the featured events option isn't very friendly to not being stickied. That's a relatively easy custom fix (which I've done), but it's still needlessly annoying to have…

                            • make the default state of "hide attendees list on event page" optional

                              I understand why people would want the default state of this check box to be checked, but for most of my events I want it unchecked, and it's needlessly annoying to have to uncheck it for every single event I publish. Why not allow the plugin user to set the default state in the plugin's settings?

                                This plugin could really use a back-end POS not unlike the (seemingly abandoned) Woocommerce POS, only with more specialized compatibility with the additional Event Tickets features. I sell tickets out of the store that runs my events (as well as online, obviously), and I'd really like my in-store sales represented in my online inventory and "who's attending" sections. Unfortunately, plugins designed to integrate Woocommerce with existing POS systems are never going to be able to differentiate between tickets for past events and tickets for future events, nor will they ever be able to collect the same data from customers that…

                                      I have a site where 99% of the events happen on location so they don't need a map to be shown, but there's 1% which happen off-site so a map is very helpful.

                                      It would be a great optimization of our time to be able to have it so the "Show Google Map" and/or "Show Google Maps Link" could be unchecked by default when creating an event (making this an option for…

                                      • For "Event Tickets" make RSVP default to 1 instead of 0

                                        As of now when people land up on my event page http://trainersexpo.com/event/20th-may-2017/ they are not sure what they have to do. So if the RSVP defaults to 1 instead of 0, that would help a lot. I've got emails from close friends saying they couldn't register. :)

                                          Thank you so much for taking the time to reach out and share this idea, and encouraging others to consider voting for it. I really appreciate your feedback.

                                          You are not the first person to suggest this. Unfortunately, this feature would break many current users websites. Thus it is not something we can add. However, we are developing a solution that will improve the experience for not only those users, but you as well. It will be very similar to this snippet, which prevents users from submitting the cart unless at least one ticket is selected. When that snippet is inserted in your theme’s functions.php it will behave as described.

                                          I do have to decline this request, simply because we can not knowingly implement a feature that will be considered a bug by some of our userbase. But, I do really appreciate your feedback, and want to…
