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. We need a possibility to block some Categories for Community Organizers (with account or anonymous).

    By blocking a category for some organizers or anonymous submitter we would still have the possibility to create exclusive calendars which will only show the events created by the admin.
    I would love to see that as an option.

    • 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…

      • Collect All Attendee Information on a Separate Page

        I'm happy to see that we can now collect info from all attendees. However, it is a bit problematic to collect this information on the event page. It would be a more advantageous workflow if the users were allowed to input the attendee information on either the checkout page or a page specifically designed for this purpose. Requesting attendee information on the event page causes design conflicts and can make the page very cluttered/large depending upon the amount of tickets purchased and information requested. I highly recommend that you adjust the UX accordingly for a more user friendly experience.

        • Add a SMS Text messaging option as reminder for events

          Having an email and SMS reminder option for events would be great for teams or groups.

          • 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.

            Vote it up!!!!

            • event aggregator categories & tags

              Now we can pick one category when using the aggregator, but in our calendar it's possible that a certain event belongs in more categories.
              This means I still have to do this manually to complete the event. Also I miss the option to activate tags. For this the same as with the categories it's handy when we could fill out more then one tag.

              • Past Events Widget

                It would be awesome to have a Past Events widget to show previous events. My business uses the ECP to show all of our tournaments, and people always want to see the results, which are embedded on each event page. A widget to automatically show the previous (1-20) events would save sooooo much time! Thanks for your consideration!

                  This is a great idea and we really appreciate you sharing it. It is very possibly something we could build as an extension or an enhancement we could include in of our feature updates. We will continue keeping an eye on this, and slot it as soon as we can amongst our hundreds of other great feature ideas.

                • Presales/Pre-event registration/Place deposit for a ticket

                  Add the ability to place a deposit as part of a pre-event registration.

                  I.E. "Secure a spot at this year's Event with a $50.00 deposit"

                  This would also require a way to pay the Balance of the Event cost at a later date.

                  • Add Stripe to Community Tickets

                    At the minute community members can sell tickets to their events using paypal. It would be awesome if they could do so and receive payment through Stripe Connect.

                    • Integrate with PolyLang

                      This plugin is already 95% working correctly with The Events Calendar.

                      There are only 2 things that ignore the language addition in the URL:

                      1. the "All Events" link in breadcrumb above Event Detail page
                      2. the "View all events" link at bottom of widget

                      • Show amount of events for each pin marker in Map View

                        For now if i have many events in one place, i only have on point. It could be nice to show in some way that this is a multi events place.

                        • SEO Friendly permalinks: event/month-day-year/title

                          It would be great to have a bit SEO friendlyness for the URL structure. Either: event/month-day-year/title or event/category/month-day-year/title.

                          This would most certainly benefit everyones events to show up on Google abit better and the URL structure would keep consistent and clean all the way :)

                            For SEO purposes, remove /category/ from urls like mysite.com/events/category/music/ for SEO Purposes. It should be mysite.com/events/music/ instead.

                                  • Easy way to design and preview email ticket

                                    The ticket emailed to customers is one of the major issues concerning the relationship with customers.
                                    The ticket design must be consistent with the design of the site to give the customer, the image of a professional product.
                                    But with the current system it is difficult to change the default design of the ticket: no preview no system to make it.So the idea would be to create the ticket in an editor ... a bit like gravity form or visual composer.

                                    • Prevent event aggregator from loading images when importing events

                                      Prevent event aggregator from loading images when importing events from facebook !

                                      It would be great if there is a choice if facebook images are imported or not. Because of the copyright law there are many situations where one would like to import the event but NOT the image!

                                      At the moment the only possibility is to delete the images after the import by oneself. Depending on the import settings the images are imported again when imports from facebook are updated etc....

                                      • 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…

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