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. Add option to show the featured image on the map view

    It would be great to have an option that would allow us to display the event image for the event in map view in the event pop up.

    Or it would be nice to at least have an easy way to format the popup that is displayed when a pin is clicked.

    • Enable Tickets to be an affiliate WooCommerce Product

      I have a use case in which two event companies share a calendar but want to stay completely separate financially. They both have their own WordPress based website with TEC and WooCommerce on it, but use separate banking accounts. They just share a location and want a combined calendar showing all events in that location, without the need to have the money flow through one of the companies (making that company a distributor or lead company) . There is no commission, so just having each company use their own gateway for ticket sales would be fine.

      Allowing tickets (generated by…

      • Recurring Event Featured View

        We have a lot of recurring events. I'd love a master single event view template that could be linked to as a "Featured" view. This would look similar to the single event template except instead of a single date, it's a master featured recurring event page that has the date info for the series in one post.

        Basically instead of a date like January 20 (single event date) it could say "Weekly on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday" or "through March 15"

        This helps big time if we are sharing events on social media or other websites so that we…

            • Auto Import Event costs when importing from Meetup.com

              I have my site setup to import events from meetup.com into the Events Calendar. I’m also using Event Tickets plus for ticketing.
              Is it possible to have the event cost information come in as well with the event info so we don't have to type it in again?
              Reduces redundancy especially when importing large number of events!! All other information is imported, so only makes sense.

              • Add and edit tickets in WooCommerce Products

                I would like to be able to add tickets via WooCommerce Products instead of just an events page. Currently I create the tickets in a private page and have edited my functions.php to be able to access the product in WooCommerce Products. I went private because I don't want the ticket purchases to show up on the bottom of the event page as I have one event page with 3 different events. It is hard enough to get customers to enter their email correctly than to worry about them buying the correct ticket. By making it a product I can…

                • Custom name for import ical stream instead of domain names.

                  I need to import a an ical stream from a website- The website hosts about 20 ical feeds. Each ical import is named after domain name - I would like to distinguish each feed separately.

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

                        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)

                          • Make "Events Calendar Pro" a Standalone Plugin

                            Over the years, The Events Calendar Pro (paid plugin) has become too dependent on The Events Calendar (free plugin). That is, you cannot use TEC Pro without installing TEC first.

                            Recommend converting The Events Calendar Pro into a standalone plugin for the following reasons:

                            (1) Less bloatware.
                            (2) Fewer plugins to manage on the back-end.
                            (3) Fewer plugin conflicts to worry about.
                            (4) Easier to troubleshoot plugin conflicts or problems in the back-end.
                            (5) Opportunity to streamline (make more efficient) each plugin (independently from each other).
                            (6) Last, but not the least, a simpler code and faster processing time which…

                              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.

                                • Show events pending review to event owner in community events plugin

                                  When the "Default status for submitted events" is set to "Pending Review" in the Community Events plugin settings, I noticed that once a new event is submitted on the frontend, the user cannot see the event on the "My Events" page. This is bad UX because it creates an illusion that the event was not successfully submitted. If the event could still appear with a message that it is pending review and not yet live on the site, that would be a major improvement.

                                    • Add payment method on e-ticket.

                                      It would be helpful, if the payment method would be stated on the e-ticket, which the user/guest prints out at home and brings to the event.

                                      Some people are still old fashion and would much rather pay at the door than online and to accommodate this, the user can order tickets online, check "Pay at the door" as payment method and prints out the e-ticket. However, in order for the usher/clerk to know, if the ticket has been paid for, it should state the payment method on the ticket.

                                      • 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.

                                          I would like my members, creating Community Events, to be able to create their own Tags that are related to their Events. Currently they can only search from a very long list of tags I have use in my blog posts.

                                          They are able to create their own "Venues" and "Organizers". Being able to create their own "Tags" as well would be helpful.

                                          It is very likely that a member submitting an Event would not find an existing Tag related to their Event from the list of tags I have used in my posts.

                                          Or is there perhaps a reason,…
