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.

I suggest you ...

  1. Rebuild a fully-functioning Facebook import by scraping data

    Facebook is still the #1 place for most people to post events. Although the official FB api is still stagnating, there are other solutions that can work just as well (in addition or in place of the current Tribe Extension).

    Possibilities:
    1. Use the .ics feed. Thats what Time.ly and other competitors are doing.
    2. Parse the URL. This method (used by geodirectory: https://wpgeodirectory.com/social-importer-v2-beta-released/) lets you get information thats neither in the .ics or the *old* API.

    • Add option to disable the Attendee Registration page

      The new Attendee Registration page is great for people who are just using TEC, but those who have other ecommerce flows on their website, might want to use the existing one.

      Please create a filter to allow us to disable this feature, and collect attendee data our own way.

      • Add Ability to Limit Submissions to Users with Specific Roles

        Requested Feature:
        Build in a security option to restrict access to members of a certain role or roles.

        Challenge:
        Currently Community Events has two options to control what site users can submit events for inclusion on the calendar. Allow all registered users to submit events or allow anonymous user submissions.

        Scenario:
        Our organization has leadership positions that are voted upon by the membership. These elections are annual and therefore, the positions turn over regularly. For the benefit of these elected users, most of which who know nothing about WordPress, we need a clean and simple to use “form” that allows…

        • filter events by author

          With the "advanced post manager" it is currently not possible to filter by author, nor is it possible to sort by author. This means there is no good way for me to see all of the events from a particular author and edit them, which is incredibly important to ensure quality.

          • update the body class if the calendar is used as the homepage

            Right now, if the events calendar is set as the homepage, the body class tags do not contain a 'home' identifier. This means themes which rely on that tag to apply formatting only to the main page will not work.

            I'm not 100% sure that's the case, but it seems that wordpress relies on the first body tag being 'home' to detect if it's the homepage or not, and the calendar simply won't add that tag when I set it to the homepage.

            • Implement automatic redirects for events that have passed and been deleted

              We run events across the country and when these events pass they are deleted and return a 404 page when crawled by Google. I suggest you implement an option within the settings for an event to "redirect to this page after deleted" and then a field to input the redirect url.

              • Tribe Commerce - Allow user to purchase multiple ticket type

                Tribe Commerce - Currently only one ticket type can be purchased at one time. Would be awesome if the user was able to purchase multiple ticket types in one purchase e.g x2 Adult Tickets and x2 Child Tickets.

                • Increase ticket capacity when after refunding and restocking via WooCommerce

                  It would be nice if I didn't have to increase the ticket capcity after refunding and restocking a ticket via WooCommerce. This seems like it should be automated.

                  • Ability to hide Image Widget title on page but still have it show on Widget admin page.

                    I have several Image Widgets in my sidebar. If I put a title in, it shows in the sidebar list and makes it easy to figure out which one is which. But then the title also shows on my page and I don't want it there. So if I make the page look the way it should then all my Image Widgets lose their description.

                    • Add additional filter for 'tickets/email.php' email

                      In the file `/src/Tribe/Meta/Render.php` add an additional filter the meta data to be transformed before the email is sent.
                      ```
                      $meta_data = apply_filters( 'tribe_event_tickets_plus_email_meta_data', $meta_data, $item );
                      ```

                      Why?
                      I have a meta field that stores the user's ID instead of their name so I can use that throughout the application to grab additional information related to the user. So when the email goes out it only shows their user id instead of showing the name of the user.
                      Adding this filter will allow me to transform that id into whatever content I would like.

                      • Add additional filter for attendees table to allow searching by custom metadata

                        In the file `/event-tickets/src/Tribe/Attendees_Table.php` on line 805 there is a filter of `tribe_tickets_search_attendees_by` which allows adding additional searchable fields for attendees. If you can add one more additional filter for the `$items` then we would be able to search by any custom meta data that applies to that attendee.

                        Here is an example:

                        New Filter that would go on line 806 (or before the other filter, doesn't really matter)
                        ```
                        $items = apply_filters( 'tribe_tickets_search_attendees', $items, $search );
                        ```

                        Then in my functions.php I have:
                        ```
                        /**
                        * Add ticket ID as searchable
                        */
                        add_filter('tribe_tickets_search_attendees_by', function ($search_keys) {
                        $search_keys[] = 'ticket_id'; …

                        • multiple eventbrite providers

                          Need a way to import MULTIPLE eventBrite events. Right now it appears as though I can only import ONE eventbrite id. This doesn't work for me.

                          • Conditional tag that returns true for any view related to Tribe's event plugins

                            There are several conditional tags that check if certain views are being displayed like "tribe_is_month()", "tribe_is_day()", "tribe_is_map()", "tribe_is_event()", "tribe_is_venue()" etc.

                            But if you need to check if _any_ of the event related views are displayed, you need to combine many of this checks in one huge functions.

                            There are several examples available online that try to solve this (http://pastebin.com/c4yujaZC, https://gist.github.com/jo-snips/2415009, https://clicknathan.com/web-design/tribe-events-calendar-conditional-tag/ etc.) but they are incomplete (not covering all views) and "cumbersome" to use because every "tribe_is_..." functions should be wrapped with `function_exists()`.

                            I believe a function that returns true for _all_ event related views should be…

                              The ability to collect the same attendee information when using the WooCommerce product of an Event Ticket.

                              There are times when I want to allow users to purchase tickets on the event single page as well as on a dedicated conference page. However, the attendee information is not available on the WooCommerce product of the Event ticket. As these are instantions of the same ticket, the attendee information should captured in a consistent manner and available in the attendee list.

                              • Allow organizers to choose their tax rate

                                It would be great if the Organizer can choose which taxes to apply if any to their event.

                                So as they add a ticket price, they can add the tax rate.

                                The tax rates would be chosen from the tax rate table in Woocommerce.

                                Hope you can make this happen

                                  • Add a test qrcode that can be used to test Event Tickets Plus app

                                    It would be extremely useful to have a test qrcode which can be used to test the event tickets plus app.
                                    As well, it would be helpful to have a log of scans.
                                    And the message for a completed scan should read "Ticket Checked In"
                                    In fact, there is no reason why this message couldn't be customised.

                                    • Import from Active.com and RunSignUp.com - both have APIs

                                      Would be great to pull from both of these sites. They have APIs for this and affiliate programs. Displaying events from these sites could be a revenue generator.

                                      • Implement "admin-like" sorting functionality to "My Events" list (sort by column header)

                                        The list of user submitted events (example.com/events/community/list) is currently sorted in descending order, meaning events starting in two weeks are listed first, events starting in one week listed below.
                                        This is because this view is considered as an admin-like page (as I can administer my submitted events here), and in the admin it is in descending order by default.

                                        But if this view is considered as an admin-like page, then it should have "admin-like" features. One would be to change order by clicking a column header, as it's possible in the backend ("Status", "Title", "Organizer", "Venue", ... and, especially, "Start…
