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.

    • Add tag as filter option for tribe_events view="day" shortcode

      tribe_events view="day" shortcode supports categories, but it doesn't support tags. A number of people have already voiced the usefulness of this filter. I couldn't find an existing suggestion to vote for.

      • a built-in feature which allows for volume-based discounts

        Here is the Use-Case:

        Buy two or more tickets at once and you get a discount of 20%.

        Now if a user chooses 2 or more tickets, then a discount of 20% is automatically applied without the need to enter any coupon.

        • Import the Meetup reservations

          I’m not sure if this is an Event Aggregator question or a Event Tickets Plus request, but what I would like to do is import the Meetup reservations and add them to the reservations for an event that a person directly signs up for on the site. In other words, the total should reflect the sum of both, and the tickets list should include the details for both (in aggregate).

              • Allow organizers to receive ticket sale money directly

                The Tickets Plus module should allow the organizers to receive the payments directly. I am using this for a community calendar where I have multiple organizers that want to sell tickets. It is my understanding that I have a choice of split payments where I am liable for the money if the event cancels or I have to accept the entire amount and make my organizer wait for their money until the event is over. Either way I am in the middle and on the hook. I don't want to be responsible for their money or the refunds or the…

                • Support Open Graph metadata for events

                  As an event manager / organizer we are promoting a lot of individual events on Facebook. Currently the open graph metadata is guessed by Facebook, which results in the wrong image being shown for example.

                  It would be great if proper og: metadata was generated for the event details so Facebook would pull the right data immediately.

                    I appreciate that attendees change amend names on their tickets, but admins can do everything else, but not amend an attendee name - please make this change!

                    • Add entry field for Event Excerpt to the Community Events event submission screen to improve look of tooltip

                      I am using Community Events to have non-admin people submit their events for course listings.
                      The tooltip for these events look awful as the HTML is stripped out of the event description when the wp_trim_words functions is run.
                      I realize that this has already been addressed by not stripping the HTML from the excerpt of the event, however entry of the excerpt is not available in the event submission form in the Community Events plugin.
                      On the event submission form in Community Events please add the Excerpt as a entry field.

                      • Change featured image of event when tickets / RSPV are sold out

                        It would be great if one could upload 2 images for an event. One as a default and one, which would show when there are no places left for the event. (No RSVPs and / or Tickets left.)

                        With this the visitors could immediately see if the event is already sold out, or if there are still available places.

                          • Add an option on the back end to re-email tickets to customer

                            One of the major feedbacks we have received from several clients is that their customers are stating they are not receiving an email with their tickets. Granted I know that some email providers block it for some reason or it may go to spam, but we would like to see an option to click on a purchaser and have an option to resend their tickets to them.

                            • More types and validation options for ticket fieldsets

                              The ability to save "ticket fieldsets" for re-use is a great time-saver. However, I find myself wanting to have more options for field types and validation options.

                              Some examples:

                              1) number field type
                              2) email validation (could be as simple as validating that entered string is xxx@yyy.zzz where zzz is a valid TLD)
                              3) phone number validation
                              4) date validation
                              5) custom validation

                              Thanks!

                              • Query event by ID

                                I don't know if this is possible, so I will suggest it. If it exists can someone point me in the right direction? All I want to do is query one event object by post ID without having to search through a tribe_get_events() query. I guess, what I am asking for is a tribe_get_event($id) which returns the appropriate event object.

                                  For same event, has been plan on different location and different time

                                  • Allow for multiple selection criteria for importing FB events

                                    Currently, when you import a facebook event url, you can only select ONE category choice. We then have to re-open the event after and select other categories. Its a huge waste of time. If you are doing multiple events, you ofter forget to go back and fix it later.

                                    • Ability to configure end date/time for editing of ticket attendee information

                                      We run an event and collect attendee information that must be submitted to the venue x days in advance of the event. It would be very helpful if we could configure an end date/time for the ability to edit attendee information for a given event/ticket.

                                      Also, it appears that attendee information is currently editable indefinitely. I would recommend that the ability to edit attendee information be disabled by default once the event has occurred. Leaving open the ability to edit attendee information indefinitely opens the possibility that reports on past event attendees could have incorrect information (not likely, but possible).

                                      • Limit maximum ticket purchase

                                        I would like to limit the number of tickets available for each user (as these are some seriously hot tickets!), probably just by IP address, but possibly buy some other method too is okay... nothing too oppressive.

                                        • adding people who are interested

                                          On your plugin there is possible to buy ticket, but I can't find something like e.g. user are browsing events, some of them is good for him, and he/she click on add to my list. After date's on event peope can added something like "I was there". It's something like on Facebook Events.
