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. Add featured images to month view

    Would it be possible for this to become an option in settings instead of having to manually add code?

  2. Extend date range in event aggregator to allow more than the next 3 months to be imported

    I have imports to make from calendars which are only seasonal, e.g. some special events in september only. Unfortunately I cannot aggregate them because i can only go 3 months into the future.

    More options would be appreciated here, at least 12 months (or even unlimited if possible and of course on your own risk). I hacked it in now myself but that's not the best solution obviously.

    And would the amount limit not still be in place?

    (and for the record, I am using the custom url to import from other tribe event calendars)

  3. Hide remaining tickets

    I want to hide the number of remaining tickets, until a certain threshold is met.

    At the moment I do that by adding that threshold in src/views/wootickets/tickets.php in line 131
    if ( $remaining && $remaining < $threshold)

    It would be nice though, if that threshold could be somehow defined in the Wordpress backend, so that I can for example define a global threshold and can turn that functionality to hide on or off. (Like in woocommerce).
    In addition it would be nice, if for each ticket the threshold could be set individually.
    So for example, the check is then performed.…

  4. Ability to prepend/append text to event title

    When importing events from multiple sources it would be nice to have the ability to prepend/append some text to indicate the event source and differentiate it from other imported events.

    For example, if an import feed came from "Event Organizer A", I might want to prepend "Event Organizer A--" to the event title such that the imported title appeared as "Event Organizer A--Event Title".

    Seems like this shouldn't be too difficult to implement and would be quite handy.

  5. Add links to the top of the calendar for previous/next months

    My background is in usability (I have a degree in Human Factors Psychology). One of the things that I was surprised not see in the calendar view was a set of links at the TOP of the calendar for previous/next months. I see them now at the bottom, but as a user looking to go to the next month, and with the bottom of the calendar cut off on my screen, I was confused for a bit when trying to figure out how to get to the next month.

    It would be fine to have the links at the bottom,…

  7. If cart qualtity is updated, force ticket buyer to enter additional info fields

    Currently Event Tickets Plus can collect additional information when adding tickets to their cart. (I.e. First Name Last and Name for each ticket purchased.) However, once the user gets to their cart, they also have the option to change the number of tickets they are purchasing. But if they increase the quantity of tickets in their cart, they are no longer required to enter the additional information fields. It would be great if the cart would display those additional fields when the ticket quantity is changed. Maybe a pop-up window where they could enter the additional names and then close…

  8. Create a Past Events section in the admin

    Having all of the past events appear in the admin Events list is really problematic. You either have to constantly delete old events or sort by Start Date so all the old events are at the bottom. Its not very usable.

    I would suggest that you only have upcoming events show in the main admin Events list. Then add a new subpage to the Events admin section that says Past Events. This page would be a list of all of past events. Once an event date has passed, then it automatically gets moved to the Past Events subpage.

    This is…

  9. Event Tickets Plus/WooCommerce. I would like to be able to access tickets in WooCommerce store and The Events Calendar.

    I have Event Calendar Pro, Event Tickets Plus, and WooCommerce. Currently, tickets can only be purchased through the calendar. I would like to be able to access tickets in WooCommerce store as well.

  10. Could we get Event tickets to work with WooExtensions for Product add-ons please. We could then add additional items to customise.

  11. Option to remove events not present in a reimported iCal feed

    This option would allow for events that get deleted from an iCal feed to be automatically deleted from The Events Calendar as well. So if you are importing an .ics calendar from a different site, such as Google Calendar or Outlook 365, and you delete the event there it will be deleted from the The Events Calendar on the next import.

    The iCal format is dedicated to event creation, and does not contain any data on events that have been deleted. However, with this option checked the iCal Importer could assume that any event no longer present in a given…

  12. Community Events > Only show My Organizers or Venues

    It would be great if the Organizer could be a registered user with certain role attribute for that user. For example is a user is an author a drop down list of all the users (who are authors) could be linked as the organizer for an event(s).

    This feature could also be very useful in the community events form. The logged in user should be the default organizer. The Admin can determine whether this can be changed or not depending on restrictions that the admin can set.

    Would love to see this feature!

  13. users re-print tickets from user login area

    Hi, very simple one...

    I would like users to be able to print tickets from their own admin area. This would ensure that when they don't get the tickets first time (which happens one ever few hundred ticket orders we get) we can just direct them to their account to re-download/re-send and print the tickets instead of coming to us...

    This could be in the form of resend email, download tickets as pdf, whatever. As there is already user functionality for a login area with Woocommerce, and there is already the ability to send emails again from an order int…

  14. Change organizer and venue author.

    As admin of a community for events I would like to add my organizer and venues, then be able to select which users are the "authors" of those CPT's. A great feature would be to create a Venue or organization but have its author be someone other than myself (as admin)?

    When registering CPT’S in wordpress i know there is an option for author support. Is this something I can turn on for these two items?

  15. Force minimum number of tickets purchased

    Offer a reduced ticket price for buying X or more, and force the quantity of that ticket to start at X.

    We sell reduced price tickets for groups of 3 or more, but the quantity on the product page always starts at 1, which allows anyone to buy only one ticket at the lower price. Currently we have to say, "Contact us for 3 or more" and process these sales manually.

    Eventbrite does this beautifully, but we're trying to get away from the extra fees.

    Thanks!

  16. Allow ics export for entire calendar year

    We publish an annual planning calendar and would like to duplicate it online. It would be really helpful if there were a way for our users to export a calendar year's worth of events at a time. Or better, a way to specify a date-range for exporting. I realize that a large date-range (perhaps even a year) would create a lot of entries, but for planning purposes, that's what users require. Asking them to export month-by-month seems a little cumbersome.

  17. Display the weather forecast for events 10 days out

    You could have an option to show the weather for events 10 days out or less. Similar to how you are showing the location map. You could possibly use the weather.com api.

  18. Option for a redirect to different URL after new event submission and edited events

    I understand that there is an add-on plugin to accomplish this but it should be native to the Community Events plugin.

  19. WooTickets as an in-house box office system as well as online e-ticketing

    Right now all ticket types and prices are published, including free tickets, but as a theater manager, I need to be able to issue comp tickets and reserve seats for events that aren't "published" ticket types. So I need an option when adding a ticket type whether or not to publish it or keep it hidden so that I, as the administrator, can operate the sales of that ticket type only from the back-end box office.

    On the same note, it would also be helpful to have a reserve or consignment feature that will change the overall number of tickets…

  20. Event Redirect Link from Calendar

    Add an option to redirect an event to a static page, post or external URL. Event shows in calendar grid and listings, but when the user clicks the event, they are immediately redirected to the destination URL.

    This allows placing events into the calendar such as those managed by a third party, FB events, or recurring events that have a specific landing page and URL, and allows the user to immediately get to the correct page.

    (Currently, we are doing this with a separate redirect plugin. Works, but it's extra plugin overhead.)
