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. extend the possibilities for schema markup to include MusicEvent and Performer

    Google now reports as an error when Performer data is not supplied. We want our events picked up and used in Google results, gut without this tag, I fear they will not show up.

    • Provide option to select a date in Events Settings instead of a numerical value

      In Events Settings, instead of a numerical value, I would like to be able to select an end date. Either select a date or “All events up to end of”…with a month-picker. As we have nothing scheduled in January, I would like to be able to select all events until the end of December, instead of having to change the number after each event, so February’s events don’t appear on the map before the end of the year!

      • incorporate a room reservation feature

        As a public library, this calendar would be a powerful competitor to some of the most advanced library calendar software available if it would offer a room booking/reservation feature. We love The Events Calendar, but with multiple locations and rooms at each branch, we need to be able to keep track on the back end of what is happening and where, see conflicts, and reserve a room without creating a public event.

        • 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…

          • Include the "Undefined" option for hours and days of events

            For events that do not yet have a confirmed time or date, (for example, the presence of our favorite star in a 3 or 4 day festival) could include the option "not yet signed" "undefined" "open"... This for both days and hours.

            • Parent / child events

              We run training courses for professional development in five day blocks.

              People can, and often do, attend the full five-day block but others will want to attend individual day(s) within the block. It would be useful to have the five-day block as the parent event with each day as an individual child event.

              As it stands I have to create five separate courses to monitor attendance for each course (annoying for people that want to book all five days as they have to go into each separate event to book a ticket) or create a five-day event with separate ticket…

              • Contact all attendees

                It would be a very useful to be able to contact all attendees with a personalised email.

                For example, if there were a change of location, just view the attendee list and email them all to say:

                "Hi [First Name],

                Just to let you know there has been a change of location..."

                If there's already a way to do this I haven't been able to find it!

                    • add capability to change accent colour assignment

                      At the moment, the theme picks up the accent colour from the global theme, which looks AWFUL on my site. But it won't let me choose one of the other accents. Its driving me crazy.

I need a few things cleared up for me. I have set up several venues. Then I receive a bands schedule and go to enter that. My question is should the band be the organizer? I like to carry band pics and bios links etc so I need to understand the most efficient way to handle data entry so I don't have to enter the same thing over and over again. Lets say a…

                              We can already add venue info when creating an event, but then we have to open a new tab and find the newly added venue to add latitude and longitude info. Why can't we just add that while we're entering the other venue info within the event editor?

                                I am using event category for activities. I'd like to add a second category for cities and be able to call this category by shortcode to display all events checked off in this category. So I can build a real WP page based on the 2nd category term - instead of being limited to just having a shortcode for the first category.

                                      The Pro-Version of your calendar costs lots of money, and being offered furtherexpensive add ons, I would wish that your plugin would at the very least respect sidebars and headers - or even better - allow uswers to redirect to a custom page.
