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. 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.

    • Allow organizers to choose their tax rate

      It would be great if the Organizer can choose which taxes to apply if any to their event.

      So as they add a ticket price, they can add the tax rate.

      The tax rates would be chosen from the tax rate table in Woocommerce.

      Hope you can make this happen

      • 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.

        • Import from Active.com and RunSignUp.com - both have APIs

          Would be great to pull from both of these sites. They have APIs for this and affiliate programs. Displaying events from these sites could be a revenue generator.

          • Implement "admin-like" sorting functionality to "My Events" list (sort by column header)

            The list of user submitted events (example.com/events/community/list) is currently sorted in descending order, meaning events starting in two weeks are listed first, events starting in one week listed below.
            This is because this view is considered as an admin-like page (as I can administer my submitted events here), and in the admin it is in descending order by default.

            But if this view is considered as an admin-like page, then it should have "admin-like" features. One would be to change order by clicking a column header, as it's possible in the backend ("Status", "Title", "Organizer", "Venue", ... and, especially, "Start…

              • Shortcode to show the newest events added to the calendar

                Have a shortcode to show the newest events added to the calendar - so would show the last 10 events submitted.

                • Please provide an option (maybe an extension) to use abbreviations in US & Canadian state/province names

                  Please provide an option (maybe an extension) to use abbreviations in US & Canadian state/province names: New Hampshire (NH), South Carolina (SC), British Columbia (BC), Prince Edward Island (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 SC, BC, etc. (unable to reproduce this here).

                    • 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?

                        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

                              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.

                                • 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 :)
