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. Improved Availability Settings

    Offer settings for stock management so that the user can decide how they would like the programme to behave.

    E.g. for us, if an attendee is moved/deleted/refunded, we would ALWAYS want the stock/availability to increase back (not sure why anyone wouldn't to be hones). You don't offer this an an option so we have to manually check every time what has happened (and manually adjust if necessary).

  2. Ticket upsells / custom additional charges

    It would be good to be able to have the special information you can add to each ticket monetised. So for instance we sell tickets in a brewery for a special steak night. We would like to be able to have the option on the same ticket to select with drinks or without drinks but the option for with drinks to add £5 on to the ticket price. This way we can sell a smaller array of tickets, which helps out capacity management, but with options that are either non monetised or that can be used as upgrades to that…

  3. Enable Attendee Information on WooCommerce Tickets

    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.

  4. 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.

  5. Scan tickets for specific event only

    The app is connected to the store with an API key. However with an event for today and one for tomorrow, people with tickets for tomorrow can attend today. There should be a way of limiting the scans to a selected event

  7. Show Attendee Details on QR Scan

    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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Mass export all attendees

    An option to export a list of all event attendees in Wordpress to a CSV file, with cells for date, event info, registration info, etc. The list is available as a Wordpress export file, but is downloaded as a WP XML.

  11. Make enabling/disabling QR codes event specific.

    I love the ability to turn it on and off for the whole site but in my case it would be nice have the option to use it for some of our events turn it off for others.
    Thank you!

  12. Add text that the user would see prior to Start Sale date

    Add one text field to the ticket area that would incorporate the "Start Sale" field to display a message to the visitor if they view the event before that date.

    As it is now, the visitor reads about the event, sees all the When and Where details... and then wonders what they're missing and why they can't purchase/sign up. All they need is a message: "Registration will begin on %StartSale% -- please check back!"

  13. Save attendee information in woocommerce customer account for future orders

    If a customer would like to order a ticket more often, he must fill in any custom attendee fields again and again. In our case (a solution for a customer) this is very complicated with 8 fields. It would be very convenient if the inputs of these fields could be saved for future orders. It is conceivable that the attendee data from the last order could be inserted at the push of a button.

  14. Ticket sales via Stripe without Woo

    The recently released Event Tickets with Paypal is great, but purchasers still have to leave your web site and go out to Paypal. It would be great if this solution also included Stripe, which allows you to have the credit card form on the order page.

  15. Woocommerce: Sales by Event Category Report

    Hi there,

    I would like to be able to see a report within Woocommerce: Sales by Event Category.

    At the moment this is a feature within the Events Calendar for Event Categories, but there is no way to measure the sales of a specific category. Therefore if we invest Google marketing into a specific event category there is no easy evaluation of sales.

    At the moment you can search by specific event, but we have 100s of events.

    Cheers.

  16. Add "Ticket Fieldset" to CSV import for tickets.

    My client offers after-school events per quarter for dozens of schools. Every event has a required ticket fieldset (child's name, age, medications and allergies, etc.)

    I've got CSV imports working for events. And even though importing corresponding tickets is a little clumsy since you have to somehow match event titles or IDs I've got that working as well.

    It's a big pain having to go in after and manually add Ticket Fieldsets to every imported event.

    Since saved Ticket Fieldsets are already named please add a CSV import column for those as well.

  17. Allow the sale of other WooProducts with tickets on events page

    Often there are items tied into an event Organizer would like to sell at the time of purchasing tickets (event t-shirts, caps, journal Ads). As confirmed with support there is no way to show these add-one on the events page. Suggest a feature where an organizer could add existing WooCommerce products to be sold with tickets. Note that for simplicity these would be products to be picked up at event (no need to go through the shipping dialogue).

  18. Enable an option for GST calculation in Tickets Plus price displays

    Gday Tribe forumites

    In Australia, it is mandatory to display pricing including GST.

    The easiest way to add data is to put the ex GST price in (eg. $98) and let the computer do the maths to display the GST inclusive price ($107.80).

    The Tickets plus combination with WooCommerce allows one of the frontend display areas to display the GST inclusive, and I suspect this is WooCommerce coding.

    However, the primary area for the ticket price does not calculate, it shows the original input.

    Here is a screenshot: https://screencast.com/t/ZBmqzCspXbMb

    I'd like a radio button option that overrides the input (default)…

  19. Event Tickets: Reset Deleted Attendees count on Attendees list

    Need a way to reset the 'Deleted Attendees' count on the Attendees list. After we delete all Orders, all Attendees, and reset the Products total_sales to 0, it is still showing the prior 'Deleted Attendees' count. We have yearly recurring events, so we re-use the same events each year. Copying the event to a new one doesn't help, it still retains that count as soon as you place an order on the new event.

  20. Add Permissions & Capabilities for Ticket Fieldsets

    Currently Permissions can be added for:
    - Events
    - Venues
    - Organisers

    https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/admin-roles-and-permissions/

    However there are no capabilities for "Ticket Fieldsets" therefore it uses the "edit_posts" functionality.

    You are therefore unable to segment these users from being able to also edit posts.

    Would be good to have a set of capabilities for ticket fieldsets
    i.e.

    edittribeticket
    readtribeticket
    deletetribeticket
    deletetribeticket
    edittribeticket
    editotherstribeticket
    delete
    otherstribeticket
    publishtribeticket
    editpublishedtribeticket
    delete
    publishedtribeticket
    deleteprivatetribeticket
    edit
    privatetribeticket
    readprivatetribe_ticket
