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 an escrow account function tied to the "enable split payments" function

    Because my website is a marketplace platform, what concerns me is rather the situation where someone “fake” an ad (of a product or an activity) in order to get some money without actually delivering – so I was wondering: whether there could be a function like an escrow account associated with split payments function, where the website admin collects all the payments at the first place then releases the proportional payments only after the real product or activity is confirmed to have been delivered. That would also solve the potential problems such as cancellation and refunds, which are listed as…

      This is a great concept, but I’m unsure about the legality and technical feasibility if an event is far in the future, such as more than 30 days. Other users, please add your votes here if interested in this feature. And feel free to share your comments about the far-future concerns if you have any expertise or opinions about that.
      Thank you!

    • Post Calendar Events to Facebook

      I would like to see the plugin go from Event Cal to FB, not FB to Event Cal.

      • Allow RSS feeds into the events calendar

        It would be great if the events calendar accepted RSS feeds from other sources.

        • Combine the Advanced Filter Bar with Standard Filter Bar

          It would be great if the advanced filter bar completely replaced the standard bar once installed. This was we can maintain the functionality of both, but only have a single filter/search bar on the screen. Right now it is a bit confusing to have two separate filters. I have noticed several complains on the forums and on the feature request page stating that viewers are becoming confused by the filter options and unable to find their desired events. Although many solutions have been proposed, I think merging the two bars would mitigate a majority of the concerns and reduce space…

          • 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…

            • duplicate tickets

              Apparently tickets are not a registered WP custom post type because you can't duplicate them like you can events and ticket fieldsets with the Post Duplicator plugin.

              It would be fabulous to have a link "Duplicate ticket" appear next to "Edit", etc for each ticket.

              I have 7 tickets for one event that are woocommerce tickets. The price changes for those after a certain date, so I have to create 7 duplicates at the new price. Kind of a pain.

              • Add the option to allow the user to download the event ticket.

                Hey, I've been using your plugins for over a year now and the consistent problem of ticket emails not sending can be solved if the option to download the ticket as a pdf was made available. This would reduce the amount of emails about not receiving tickets, the user can log into their account and see the tab My Events with the tickets ready to download and resend as an email.

                I know I'm not alone who is still suffering the emails so this would be a really cool addition.

                • Ticket Bundles / Multiple Event Passes

                  Set up ticket bundles - for example selling a All Access Pass (all events) or a Pass for a couple of events that provides either tickets for each event and/or for limited seat events a count per pass purchased towards each single event included in the pass.

                  • Develop an Android and iOS App for QR Code Scanning Check-In

                    Build or support a third party app that can be used by the event venue to check-in attendees similar to Eventbrite Entry Manager https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.eventbrite.organizer

                    Something easy, handheld and mobile for ticket takers to use across several windows with most all the same features of Eventbrite... Maybe it's as easy as contacting the same developer and changing the data source to connect to WordPress...???

                        The idea is to add an admin interface where users can select which details they want to be viewable on the main calendar views, such as List or Month. An On/Off toggle could be made available for some or all of the following event details:

                        * Description

                        * Event Website

                          Idea: Re-think the SEO to cut down on duplicate content and/or options for canonical URLs

                          The current setup means that recurring events are classed as duplicate content by search engines. This is terrible for SEO. There needs to be a way to fix this issue, and I can think of 2:

                          1. Set up the future recurring events so that they all use the same URL. The events on my site are not different year-to-year, so there is no reason the page/content/URL must be different. A single URL would suffice, but placed in the correct recurring dates in the calendar…

                                The filter bar looks great but it creates a new column, taking up valuable space.

                                I'd like a WIDGET that calls the filter bar functionality. That way, if you're already using sidebars, you can simply plug activate the filter bar in a sidebar and NOT create that additional column! It would save a LOOOOOOT of space...

                                    • 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…

                                        Export to outlook calendars! Most of our users use Microsoft outlook and it would be helpful to have that feature with iCal and Google

                                          Whilst people can download a calendar to Google Calendars I would like them to be able to 'subscribe' to a calendar so they get updates we post to events.
