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 Additional Fields support in Other URL imports

    I believe that the use case is a valuable one. We have a group event calendar whereby having Additional Fields import capability could be utilized to easily customize various event listings coming in from various "Other URL" scheduled imports from participating organizations. Everyone would use the same set of Additional Fields to specify information about their event. We would then use these field values as variables for controlling the ultimate display of the event item at runtime.

  3. Additional Fields Should Support Date Fields

    I would LOVE IT if additional fields supported dates and date ranges, and the filter bar would search in a date rage.

    For instance, our events have a registration open and close date, but we're not responsible for ticketing. To allow our users to see what events have opened recently would be huge. :)

  4. Allow HTML markup in Additional Fields

    It would be very helpful to be able to use HTML markup and styling in text Additional Fields. I wanted to enter a set of links as a styled list, the result was a string of comma-separated links.

  5. +Export Events button on category page to export category events only

    At the moment, the +Export Events button on a category page adds every single event (on the whole calendar) to your diary (which is a disaster). Would be great if the +Export Events button on category pages only exported the events listed in that category.

  6. Allow orderby / order to be passed to Rest API endpoints

    Allow user the ability to pass through orderby / order via query to the Rest API endpoints.

    E.g.
    /wp-json/tribe/events/v1/events?order=desc
    /wp-json/tribe/events/v1/events?orderby=id
    /wp-json/tribe/events/v1/events?orderby=start_date&order=desc

  7. Make 'Categories' available via the REST Api

    A simple list of all of the event categories in a separate url would be extremely handy!

    Exactly like the current wp-json/wp/v2/categories

    Thanks

  8. Force a Run Import on several selected Scheduled Imports

    Just like you can select several plugins to update, I would like to select several "Scheduled Imports" and force a "Run Import" on all of them at once. Since I'm often getting that red circle error saying last time of import is unknown, this would be a nice way to make sure the import has been run. And it would just be a useful option in general.

  9. Make Filter Bar compatible with shortcoded calendars

    Would be nice to add the filter bar feature to every page with a calendar via shortcode, not only in the event page.

    Then it would allow you to make filtered calendars on pages, and let to the user play with the other fields to check information.

  10. One-page Checkout on Event pages

    For a streamlined purchase process, put the checkout form directly on the Event page. (See Woocommerce One-Page Checkout by Prospress)

    This would also solve the request by several people to be able to skip the Cart page to go direct to Checkout, and might also resolve the issue of quantities being changed in the Cart or at Checkout.

    If there were a dynamic panel right above the checkout form that summarized the custom data fields that would also potentially resolve the issue of making changes during checkout that are then not reflected in those fields .

    There are a few…

  11. Advanced List Widget: [tribe_events_list] to allow category=Yes and Tags=yes

    We use the [tribeeventslist] both for individual categories event listings and also the combined list of events. For the latter it would be great to be able to display the category name.
    It doesn't seem that you can currently add either the category or the tags as extra information to the view for this shortcode?

  12. WooCommerce > Show Attendee information on the checkout page

    USER STORIES & GOALS


    • I am a customer who added multiple tickets to my WooCommerce shopping cart, I would like to confirm that I filled out the data for each ticket accurately before clicking Proceed to Checkout.

    • I am a customer who realized that one of the multiple tickets in my cart has inaccurate attendee meta info. I would like to edit only that ticket, or at least remove it from my cart without removing all of the others.

    SOME POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS


    • When 2+ tickets are added to the cart, each one will appear as a separate item in the…

  13. Import Google Calendar attached images as event image

    I am quite surprised this feature has not been included in a prior iCal Importer update or the release of Event Aggregator.

    Can Event Aggregator import the attached image in Google Calendar and use it as the event image for Wordpress? I know this can be done as some other platforms already do this.

    I have hundreds of events on my calendar, and adding an image to every single one is not an option.

    Thank you!

  14. Add a datepicker for birth dates (or any other dates) to tickets

    As we offer many events for kids (e.g. ski lessons) it is mandatory to receive the kid's birth date. If we just add a text field, we get different date formats and can't use them for further planing in Excel.

  15. Add a language configuration for Google Maps links

    The google map link in venue info has now a parameter hl=en. It would be great to be able to configure it to use any language.

  16. Use Google Maps to autocomplete venue address boxes

    Having many venues it is a lot of pain to enter each adress. I have seen many plug ins that have a better way to do it. They offer just one line with google maps autocomplete to enter the adress! Thats the way it should be I think.Can provide screen shot.

  17. Set default organizer per import feed

    it would be great if we could set an Organizer for each feed. This way I could aggregate calendars from several sources while crediting those sources.

  18. Have Calendar Widget show next 5 events regardless of month

    in the calendar widget there are "only" shown events that are in the future of the current month. (I selected to show 5)
    but if there are events in the following months and not in the present, it does only show the calendar, but not the next events.
    sure, if I "switch" the month in the widget to another month, the events of this future or past month are shown, but the customers are lazy, they want to have it like:
    when calling the site, show the X(5 in my case) upcoming events and only if i switch to future…

  20. Community Events - Native Image/File Uploader on Submit Form

    Currently the submission form uses a default file upload but it seems it would be great if it used the default wordpres image/file uploader for usability and faster submission.
