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 support forums. If you use our free core plugin, you can post in our forum on WordPress.org.

  1. 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,…

    • 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. …

          • Add a Word Limiter that prevents posting events that are too long.

            We love this plug-in! We use it so community members can post events to our television calendar. We need the events posted to stay under a specific word limit to ensure it can all fit on one 'slide'. We would like a pop up or something that warns people they are over the limit, and will not let them submit. I have searched through the support forums, but have not found a solution yet.

            • 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.

              • 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…

                • Replace @ for "at"

                  It would be cleaner and more professional to have "at" instead of "@" before the event time.

                  • 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!

                      Could we get Event tickets to work with WooExtensions for Product add-ons please. We could then add additional items to customise and add features such as paying for dinners, pickup etc..or add the feature to the ticket plugin .. allowing us to create add-on fields with values..

                      • 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…

                        • add a link to the next month that hasn't happened yet

                          When viewing the latest calendar month (August in this case) I would like to go to the next month (September) which hasn't occurred yet. My PRO version currently does not allow me to see what's happening next month.

                          The only link at the bottom points to July (last month). Of course, if I go back and look at July, there are links at the bottom that allow me to go even further back to June or advance to the current month of August.

                          Thanks

                            By default, the month to month navigation links on your calendar will not be shown if there are no additional events to display. This article describes how to show the links regardless.

                                • Allow repositioning of RSVP form above Event image, or option for two locations

                                  Many times my users arrive at the event calendar ready to RSVP. Several have written stating the RSVP form is not present. It is, but it appears under the Text/Image/Description/Google Map... Some mentioned when they got to the map they were certain the RSVP form was missing.

                                  It would also be nice to have some style choices to make the form stand out (Font/Color/Container). Thanks for creating Tickets!

                                    • Create a built-in recurring import updates of CSV files

                                      We can create CSV files for a sharepoint calendar that we want to import its data to The Events Calendar. However, this information changes on a consistent bases. We would like to add a url where it can fetch data every 30min or hour.

                                      • recurring weekend events

                                        Please add to recurring events functionality: a recurring weekend events. I have theater events that occur every weekend for 3 weeks It'd be great to exclude a group of days (sun-thursday for example) by date all at once rather than entering each date exclusion separately. OR just have events that run from 6-8pm for 2 days for example, then 5 days off, then repeat every week for 3 weeks. OR input days that the events take place by just entering dates, ie, 2/2/16, 2/3/16, 2/8/16, 2/9/16, 2/15/16, 2/16/16 something like that

                                        • allow for one event to be able to occur multiple times on the same day.

                                          We have a 30-minute film that occurs every day at 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, and 3:00 pm. There is not an option for it to occur multiple times a day, so do I have to create a reoccurring event for each show time? That seems like overkill and difficult to manage.
