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. 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!

    • Post Calendar Events to Facebook

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

      • 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!!!!

        • 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.

          • Tickets: Venue seating chart with different price grade and ability graphically to choose seats.

            Add the venue seating chart with different price grade and ability graphically to choose seats (similar plane seat selection with check-in).
            Provide ability for ticket admin to "grey out" some reserved seats.

              Implementing a graphical solution, where you can click on a given seat and it will reserve it, is probably not possible due to the complexity and technological limitations.

              However, would the ability to upload an image of your seating map/chart work? From there you could specify a list of seating names in the backend and when a user purchases a ticket they can select from a drop down of available seats, and cross reference it with your seating chart image so they now which goes where. We realize this will not be as fancy as many people are picturing, but since it is actually possible to implement it is a compromise we would be interested in looking into if this will solve your needs.

            • Create a TBA/TBD or No Date Event

              It would be great to be able to create an event with no date or have the date/time display as TBA (To Be Announced) or TBD (To Be Determined).

              • Export to outlook calendars

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

                • Shortcode > Featured Organizer

                  As well as having a tribe_featured_venue shortcode it would be great if there was a featured organiser. I know you can create a list of organisers and venues using the shortcode plugin but I want specific results. Fingers crossed

                  • 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…

                    • Add enable/disable button for iCal´s buttons

                      Please add an enable/disable option for Google Calendar & Export iCal buttons, when I did my research you keep answering that same issue for YEARS, add some code to the functions.php or some CSS, but that solution is not immune to the upgrades of wp, theme or plugin...
                      Since I´ve seen many people asking for how to remove, I bet there´s many more that will want extra option :)

                        Automatically sync new Eventbrite events with Events Calendar instead of having to manually enter event IDs for each event you want to add.

                        • Set default ticket types

                          It would be nice if there was a way to set default ticket types for a new event. For example, if I know that the majority of events will have the same 3 tickets options with the same prices for every event, it would be nice to have those 3 ticket types automatically populate when creating a new event instead of creating the same 3 ticket types each time.

                          • Community Events > Duplicate events

                            This functionality is allready available in The Events Calendar, but in the backend only. I'd love to see it in the frontend submission of Community Events.

                            • 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…

                                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

                                  • Venue Map - all Venues

                                    Each venue has an address and can display a Google Map showing people where it is.
                                    I need a single map which displays all venues. (Perhaps restrict the map to include only venues with events in a given date range.) For the map markers, allow a different marker per category, with venue details in a pop-up box, and marker grouping in case there are several venues close to each other.
                                    Several GPL plugins exist to produce a decent multi-marker map. Perhaps integration with one of them?

                                    • 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....

                                      • option to import every 4 hours

                                        Option to import events every 4 hours. Daily isn't often enough and every hour is overkill.

                                        • Check if importing from Facebook URL already

                                          I have added a URL in twice as Facebook schedule. I forgot I was importing from that Facebook page already.

                                          If it could check the main URL (excluding any attributes such as ?fref=pb&hc_location=profile_browser as an example ) or at least have a search box to filter imports by name it would clear up this slight issue.
