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. Notifications for Pending Imported Events

    When a new import has been made and the event is set to "waiting for approval" an e-mail is sent to one or more (pre defined by admin) addresses with a message saying "you have new events to approve".

    • Add a search to the scheduled imports

      I have 7 pages of scheduled imports and sometimes need to find one of them. Would save a LOT of time over the years if I could just search instead of browsing through 7 pages. Please add to the next upgrade!

      • Import recurring Facebook events

        Currently when Event Aggregator imports recurring events from Facebook, it imports it as one event (rather than a series of events). The first event is mistakenly the start time/date, and the last occurrence is the finish time/date.

        Here’s the event we’re trying to import from FB:
        https://www.facebook.com/events/1103532993123375

        • Ability to prepend/append text to event title

          When importing events from multiple sources it would be nice to have the ability to prepend/append some text to indicate the event source and differentiate it from other imported events.

          For example, if an import feed came from "Event Organizer A", I might want to prepend "Event Organizer A--" to the event title such that the imported title appeared as "Event Organizer A--Event Title".

          Seems like this shouldn't be too difficult to implement and would be quite handy.

          • 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.

            • Show Number of Events in Filter

              Dynamic event count for filters, similar to:
              - SHIRTS (23)
              - SHORTS (15)
              - PANTS (6)
              - HATS (31)

              These filters would change as other options are selected, as seen on Amazon and other major sites.

              • Optimize / clean up event submit form by removing selectable options

                A switch in the settings to hide or turn off the follwowing fields in the event submit form would be useful:
                d) Timezone (not necessary if there are only events of one country/region)
                e) Recurring events (not every calendar needs them)

                  Display events automatically in web visitor's timezone

                  Currently, the options allow you to use your WordPress timezone OR local timezones for each event. None of these options will automatically update the date and time of your event based on the user's local timezone.

                    • Ability to filter OUT events by keyword

                      Add the ability to filter OUT events by keyword in a feed. This is the converse of the existing filter functionality.

                      Use Case: I have a scheduled event import of an organizations events which contains a "Monthly Meeting" that I'd prefer NOT to import. As it stands now, I need to manually trash each "Monthly Meeting" event that gets imported. Being able to set a filter to ignore "monthly meeting" would save me some tedious work.

                      • Schedule auto-post to social media

                        Create a way to schedule auto posts to social media for upcoming events. This would reduce a lot of social media labor and strengthen the marketing of events.

                          When I create a venue, it assumes that M-F hours are the same, but we are always open late on Fridays. I have one venue that is closed on Tuesdays. We need each day to have it's own hours.

                            Similar to my suggestion to add the ability to append/prepend text to the event title, the ability to do the same with the event description would also be useful.

                            As an example, suppose you wanted to clarify that a particular event was hosted by a 3rd party and not your own organization. You might want to include text such as:

                            "This event is hosted by a 3rd party and while we have every reason to believe you will have an enjoyable experience at this organization's event, we make no guarantees or representations of such."

                            • Dropdown in the ticket area

                              Wouldn't i be nice have a dropdown in the ticket area so the user can just choose a ticket (when having multiple tickets) at that line and not having to scroll down (Bad UX when having many types of tickets). After the ticket is selected the right price is shown and you can just fill in the attendee information and go to the check out.

                                  If you run a site in a UTC timezone that uses GMT in Winter and observes DST (Daylight Saving Time) during the Summer (e.g. London/Europe uses BST (British Summer Time) in the Summer) and you are creating a recurring event series that spans the switch between GMT & BST time-zones (or vice-versa), then an alert should appear warning the user that it's not possible, and that they should create two event series that split the event either side of the timezone change. Otherwise, event in the series after the timezone change get incorrectly formatted.

                                  • "This Weekend" / "This Week" / "This Month" Options in Filter Bar / Tribe Bar

                                    Such a feature would help tremendously for people who want to know what's on this weekend or see what's coming up next month. This isn't immediately obviously when looking at the a chronological list of events and the date picker is cumbersome for this sort of task.

                                      Beaver Builder's Page Builder is hugely popular with over 275K downloads. Right now the widget don't work completely in the page builder. Some functionality is missing and there are bugs.

                                      It would be grand of there could be a concerted effort to make sure Event Calendar is fully compatible with Beaver Builder.

                                      • Merge locations

                                        OMG I love Event Aggregator. But now that it's importing from third party calendars (Facebook and Google Calendars etc) the locations section is a mess of duplicate locations. I don't know the correct terminology, but could there be a system which allows locations to be merged, and it learns the terminology (so it knows that "the flying nun" and "flying nun" are the same location). Thanks!!!

                                        • Connect (sync) with Microsoft Exchange

                                          We need a calendar plugin that will be able to connect to an exchange calendar.

                                          This plugin has most of the features we need in a WP calendar system minus the connection with Exchange.

                                          We are going to be building a 120+ multisite environment and each of those sites need to have a calendar connected to their own calendar within exchange.

                                          See my other suggestion for a different approach.
