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.

    • Show Date (Tuesday Oct 2) as Featured Image if no featured image assigned.

      Is there a way to show Date as Featured image instead of grey calendar icon?

      • 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

          • Add option (maybe extension) to use abbreviations in ** & ******** state/province names

            Option (maybe an extension) to use abbreviations in ** & ******** state/province names: ************* (**), ************** (**), *********************** (**), ******************** (PE).
            Many websites (including ours) use the abbreviations instead of the default full state name, which is a clumsy workaround and results in a dotted line under **, **, etc. (unable to reproduce this here)

            • Add dates to tooltip in "Display all events with the same venue" extension

              The tooltip now displays:
              Event (1)
              Event (2)
              Event (3)
              Address: 123 Main St (No city)
              Would like to see:
              Event (1) ... Date
              Event (2) ... Date
              Event (3) ... Date
              Venue/City/ST

              • 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.

                  Please add this option in the extension:

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • Allow relabling of "Event" phrase in the Community Events plugin as well

                        For the TEC and TEC PRO plugins, you have a very cool optional plugin called "Relabler". https://theeventscalendar.com/extensions/change-labels-events-venues-organizers/

                        Could you add this for the Community Events as well?

                        See for more info: https://theeventscalendar.com/support/forums/topic/the-events-calendar-relabler-doesnt-work-for-community-events/#post-1588890

                        Thanks in advance :)

                              • Allow save custom recurrence rule set and apply to new event

                                I'd like to be able to create a set of recurrence rules, with both regular occurrences and exclusions - and then save them as a custom named ruleset that I can apply to another event.

                                We have many events that run on a regular basis outside of school term-times. We can manually exclude the dates that fall within school holidays, but it would be a massive timesaver to only have to do this once and save it as for example "school holidays 2018" so that we can apply this custom set of rules to any other event. This has broader…

                                  • Add names/aliases to imports

                                    iCalendar imports don't have the ability to be named, which makes working with them confusing – I have a whole bunch of imports called "calendar", and I don't know which is which.

                                    • 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!

                                      • Eventbrite - Filter Tickets

                                        I have a single event with a large number of tickets for different categories, (lets say Music/Art/Education etc).

                                        On my website, I would like to advertise the relevent tickets on each page as theres currently no way to filter out the tickets.

                                        This would be a really handy feature.

                                          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…
