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.

I suggest you ...

  1. Allow users to vote on events that they wish to be published

    Allow users to add 'no date' events that can be voted on by other users. Once the set vote amount has been reached the event will be added by an admin. As certain vote goals are met, extra activities/features are added to the event that make it more appealing. (Sort of like crowd funding, but for event voting.)

    I have been trying to make this work for events with no luck, as it is tied to e-commerce. But, it would be similar to this idea... https://themeforest.net/item/startup-idea-crowdfunding-wordpress-theme/11142088

    • Make it easy to separate community from other events

      Now, community events (CE) all get merged into the Main event calendar. We have no control to speak of to keep the two separate. I can call just CE, or I can call everything BUT CE, but there is no simple way just remove CEs from the from the MC. All your filters are -inclusive- and you have no -exclude- filters. If our categories change (as they do) with the current setup we also have to edit every -inclusive- call.

      2) there is no way for force a category on CEs. Folks adding a new ce have the option of…

      • Information Assistants (field date)

        Hello: I think it would be a good option, to have the possibility of adding a Date field to the ticket, to collect here the information entered by the assistant. For example, we could use it to collect the date of birth, the day you want to book a specific event ...

        • Daylight Saving Alert

          If you run a site in a UTC timezone that uses GMT in Winter and observes DST (Daylight Saving Time) during the Summer (e.g. London/Europe uses BST (British Summer Time) in the Summer) and you are creating a recurring event series that spans the switch between GMT & BST time-zones (or vice-versa), then an alert should appear warning the user that it's not possible, and that they should create two event series that split the event either side of the timezone change. Otherwise, event in the series after the timezone change get incorrectly formatted.

          • Add a search to the scheduled imports

            I have 7 pages of scheduled imports and sometimes need to find one of them. Would save a LOT of time over the years if I could just search instead of browsing through 7 pages. Please add to the next upgrade!

            • Generic json event import

              I would like to take a json file, have the Event Aggregator allow me to map fields to TEC fields and then schedule the event import like any other scheduled import

              • Option to disable recurring events

                I have had issues with the unaccountable generation of multiple recurrences for events that were intended to be single events. We never have recurring events. I'd therefore like an option to disable the recurring events feature to avoid these issues

                    • Make the orders screen able to export a csv like the attendees screen can.

                      It would be great if you could export the orders report like the attendees report. My client needs both reports for different uses, and it's counter intuitive to provide a file for one and necessitate a login for the other.

                      • Two way iCal sync for editors

                        We need a calendar plugin that will be able to be edited via Outlook (iCal 2-way sync).

                        This plugin has most of the features we need in a WP calendar system minus the connection with Exchange (or 2-way iCal sync for editors).

                        We are going to be building a 120+ multisite environment and each of those sites need to have a calendar that can be edited from within Outlook (iCal 2-way sync).

                        See my other suggestion for a different approach.

                        • Connect (sync) with Microsoft Exchange

                          We need a calendar plugin that will be able to connect to an exchange calendar.

                          This plugin has most of the features we need in a WP calendar system minus the connection with Exchange.

                          We are going to be building a 120+ multisite environment and each of those sites need to have a calendar connected to their own calendar within exchange.

                            Would be great if in the PRO version, the events list widget could have the option to show the excerpt - a check box just like for the Price, Venue, City, Address, etc. Thanks :)

                              • Offer button to copy and paste all registered attendee emails with comma option inbetween

                                I have a suggestion for approach to mass-emailing attendees who have already registered for an event. I know that incorporating mass email into the plugin where the server is doing the email for you is a complicated procedure that may or may not work depending on server settings. An easier approach could be when you click on “Attendees” on the specific event where there are options towards the top for “Print”, “Email”, and “Export” you add another button like “Copy Email Addresses” so it brings up a window that you add sorting options to sort for those who are processing,…

                                      • limit recurring posts

                                        I'd like a way to prevent a group from posting the same recurring event every day. To quote another user:
                                        <<Along these lines I would like to be able to add other limits. For example, let’s say someone entered a daily recurring event for the entire 12 months. I would consider that an abuse, and I would have to delete 365 events. Having a way to suppress specific instances of recurring events like that so they cannot be entered would be great.>>

                                          Many events are for a charity and many people actually only want to donate and not attend. Rather than having them buy a ticket and expecting them to show up, allowing a donation would simplify the process
