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. TEC & TECPro Versioning

    The versions numbers have slipped so far apart that it is difficult to pair up the two.

    I suggest that the version follow each other through every update, even if one or the other is not updated. In the release notes, you could add a note that states "This release is only a version number update." when nothing is changed.

    • Add unique classes to each month title in span.tribe-events-list-separator-month

      I’m using JS to add the name of the month as a class to the span.tribe-events-list-separator-month

      The goal is to use custom graphics for the month headings instead of text. The JS I’m using is not very foolproof, and only fires when the page is finished loading. I had to hide the “next/prev events” buttons, because they reload the page with ajax, so my JS doesn’t get triggered, and the month headings then “disappear”.

      If that span had a class with the month name or month number in it already, I wouldn’t need the JS, and it would work perfectly.

      • Please add common timezone abbreviations

        It's great that time zones are supported, and that a lot of major cities are included - unfortunately there are loads that aren't.

        When adding international events, it's a major hassle to have to look up the UTC offset for those frequent occurrences where a city isn't there.

        Thankfully, it's an easy fix that'll make things much easier:

        Simply include common time zones such as EST, PDT, CET etc in the time zone selector - this will VASTLY speed up adding international events.

          Please add more fields in the venue database admin screen listing venues. Address and city are of most importance.

            • Adding Apple Maps/MapKit to Events Calendar

              Apple recently announced MapKit for the web. Maybe offer that as an option in case people are hitting the API limits for Google Maps.

              So far it seems that Apple Maps offers way more API hits per day then Google Maps?

              • Sort events in API

                The sorting is lost if there any filtering params for /events API endpoint. Ex: https://wpshindig.com/wp-json/tribe/events/v1/events?start_date=2018-01-01+00:00:00 it starts with the events in Jan, even if there are events for Jun/Jul

                Here's a example which the API doesn’t support now:
                – show events between May 1, 2018 – May 31, 2018 sorted from newest to oldest. A parameters like order=desc would fix this

                There are more details in this thread https://wordpress.org/support/topic/sort-events-in-api

                • Bring an Android & iOS app for adding Events directly to website.

                  Greetings,
                  I am writing this to give you a suggestion to develop an Android and iOS app for your Event Plugin. I am a freelancer an often use this plugin for my clients as I love it. Unfortunately, Many Clients do not want to login to their dashboard to add an event. They often say if there is any way to add events from mobile phone or if they can add an event on Google Calendar, it should be added on Website Events page too on auto. So I face such feedback. Today I thought to give you a suggestion…

                  • Add option to reorder zip and city for certain countries

                    In quite a few european countries, the usual (and also "correct" in terms of what postal services expect on an envelope) way to write addresses is like this:

                    Venue Name
                    Street 23
                    12345 City
                    Country

                    While the notation of street and number ("123, Park Avenue" vs. "Hauptstraße 17") isn’t an issue (since it’s only one field in the database), addresses like "Berlin, 12345 Deutschland" (instead of the correct "12345 Berlin, Deutschland" are quite disturbing.

                    I am aware that src/views/modules/address.php could be customized by the user, but I would strongly suggest to add an option to reorder zip and city. This…

                      • have an option for setting defaults for the meta fields. Such as defaulting to "All Day Event"

                        It would be great if the Event Settings included options to set defaults. I'd love to be able to default new events to ALL DAY, rather than having to check that box every time.

                        • Calendar Widget

                          Can you make the details of the events show on the main page when they click the specific event date on the widget?

                          Listing all the events on the main page and when they click the date on the widget it will show the complete information of the event.

                          I do not want the whole calendar on the main page, instead just do a listing, and then when someone clicks the date on the widget, it will show the details.

                          I have you understand what I'm trying to explain.

                          Thanks

                          • Update the Countdown SHORTCODE to include next event functionality

                            The Events Calendar is a great plugin and very useful for a lot of situations. My one major suggestion so far is as follows:

                            It would be very helpful to add the "countdown to next event" functionality to the Countdown shortcode. The widget doesn't always fit into a sites design and having to update the current shortcode every time an event passes is quite cumbersome.

                            The shortcode can be styled using css to greater effect in some cases.

                            There was a functions.php code addition that someone added in the support forums for this in 2016 but it tends to break…

                                  • Shortcode to display all Event Categories used

                                    I would love to see a shortcode that scrobbles all event categories used (with filter parameters built in, of course) in much the same way that Wordpress can scrobble all post categories by default in a sidebar widget. Also, some kind of automated Javascript that gives you the option (maybe in the settings or back-end) to specify which pages you'd like to display the event category widget on (i.e. all event-related pages, everything under /event and /events) would be awesome.

                                    I could definitely see the utility of this feature in other applications besides just a sidebar event categories widget, but…

                                    • Extend the REST API endpoint /events to filter events by categories

                                      The Swagger documation of the events calender REST API mentions the parameter categories. But if this parameter is set in requests the API repsonds with HTTP ERROR 400.
                                      I suggest to extend the API to correspond with the swagger documentation.

                                      • customize shortcode colors

                                        I used the WP customizer to style the default event page, but those settings don’t carry over when using shortcodes on other website pages. Without being able to set the style (primarily the bg colors for tables, title colors, cal info text etc) for the various calendar instances when using shortcodes, I'm unable to use them at all since they don't match the branding of my client site (currently using Avada theme) and are thus difficult to read by default. The purpose of me using a premium plug-in like this is to avoid having to customize theme files and stylesheets,…

                                        • Allow x Number of Upcoming Recurring Events to Display

                                          It would be great to be able to show more than just only one upcoming event in a recurring series. Ideally this would be per recurring event series so you could customize it different for different recurring events. This would be helpful in situations where one recurring event dominates the calendar for the next few weeks, but you still want to be able to show more than just one.
