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. Add "location" to Venue in Events Calendar

    SEO wise, the Events Calendar prevents rich card feature from google. It's just missing a value for "location" under venue. Unfortunately, there is no "location" field, just Venue.

    • Allow save custom recurrence rule set and apply to new event

      I'd like to be able to create a set of recurrence rules, with both regular occurrences and exclusions - and then save them as a custom named ruleset that I can apply to another event.

      We have many events that run on a regular basis outside of school term-times. We can manually exclude the dates that fall within school holidays, but it would be a massive timesaver to only have to do this once and save it as for example "school holidays 2018" so that we can apply this custom set of rules to any other event. This has broader…

      • Autofill the Event Tickets header image

        Make it possible to add the WooCommerce Product featured image from within the ticket meta-block in the event. I would be perfectly happy with either of three solutions:
        1 reusing the header image
        2 reusing the featured image of the event
        3 selecting a separate image for just this reason.

        But can understand if option 1 might conflict with how the image might be used otherwise and option 2 might conflict with the fact that the ticket is stored basically separate from the event, so perhaps option 3 should be it and will save me a lot of time anyway.…

        • "Hide" event categories in Filter Bar

          PLEASE make it so that an unused category (no events associated) is not displayed in the filter bar drop down. It looks unprofessional if I have categories that can be chosen with no events. Thanks.

          • allow user to save/star events

            Allow users to save, star or favourite events. So they can plan which events they would like to attend. This would be a huge value-add to the end user where there are a lot of events to choose from and they may want to attend a few.

            • Save attendee information in woocommerce customer account for future orders

              If a customer would like to order a ticket more often, he must fill in any custom attendee fields again and again. In our case (a solution for a customer) this is very complicated with 8 fields. It would be very convenient if the inputs of these fields could be saved for future orders. It is conceivable that the attendee data from the last order could be inserted at the push of a button.

              • Allow relabling of "Event" phrase in the Community Events plugin as well

                For the TEC and TEC PRO plugins, you have a very cool optional plugin called "Relabler". https://theeventscalendar.com/extensions/change-labels-events-venues-organizers/

                Could you add this for the Community Events as well?

                  • Bring an Android & iOS app for adding Events directly to website.

                    Greetings,
                    I am writing this to give you a suggestion to develop an Android and iOS app for your Event Plugin. I am a freelancer an often use this plugin for my clients as I love it. Unfortunately, Many Clients do not want to login to their dashboard to add an event. They often say if there is any way to add events from mobile phone or if they can add an event on Google Calendar, it should be added on Website Events page too on auto. So I face such feedback. Today I thought to give you a suggestion…

                      • Add names/aliases to imports

                        iCalendar imports don't have the ability to be named, which makes working with them confusing – I have a whole bunch of imports called "calendar", and I don't know which is which.

                          • Event statistics report

                            Our organization would like an easy way to compile event statistics for a specific time period (calendar year, for example). TEC doesn't include any such reporting functionality and I'm not aware of any 3rd party solutions to this other than using an SQL tool.

                            Data that we would be interested in includes:

                            * number of events in the time period
                            * number of tickets sold in the time period
                            * total revenue for the time period

                            Thanks!

                            • have an option for setting defaults for the meta fields. Such as defaulting to "All Day Event"

                              It would be great if the Event Settings included options to set defaults. I'd love to be able to default new events to ALL DAY, rather than having to check that box every time.

                                        While the notation of street and number ("123, Park Avenue" vs. "Hauptstraße 17") isn’t an issue (since it’s only one field in the database), addresses like "Berlin, 12345 Deutschland" (instead of the correct "12345 Berlin, Deutschland" are quite disturbing.

                                        I am aware that src/views/modules/address.php could be customized by the user, but I would strongly suggest to add an option to reorder zip and city. This…

                                          The recently released Event Tickets with Paypal is great, but purchasers still have to leave your web site and go out to Paypal. It would be great if this solution also included Stripe, which allows you to have the credit card form on the order page.
