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. Make 'Categories' available via the REST Api

    A simple list of all of the event categories in a separate url would be extremely handy!

    Exactly like the current wp-json/wp/v2/categories

    Thanks

      Thank you for taking the time to reach out and share an idea. It’s good to know what would be handy for the devs.

      To quote our chief strategist “we’ll be adding it for sure”. We do not have an ETA. This was just added to our roadmap which maps out over a years worth of the team’s time and is full up at the moment. But as soon as we’re able this feature will be added. Hopefully it is something we can slip in when there is a small opening.

      Cheers!

    • Recurring Event Support for Tickets

      Currently our WooTickets plugin does not work fully with recurring events, and users can only purchase tickets for the most upcoming event in a series. Would it be useful to you to combine the power of WooTickets with the PRO recurring events feature?

        We really appreciate the tremendous of support this feature request has received. What is important to y’all is what guides our roadmap. Your feedback on this feature request has actually driven us to completely re-architect much of our plugins over the past couple of years.

        This is a truly herculean feature request. While designing the user interface is simple, it requires many developers and many months worth of time get things in place for that simple interface to work. We have already devoted hundreds of hours of time to this, and still have many more to go.

        Our next feature release will contain a lot more architecture improvements, and will put us many miles closer to the finish line. There are likely to be a few more similar releases in the coming months before this is truly complete.

        In an effort to not mislead folks we are marking this with…
      • Email list of event attendees to admin before event

        Have a field to enter in the amount of time you wish to receive an automatic email of event attendees and a field to enter who the email is sent to. This idea was suggested to me by one of our clients, it would make it easier for event organizers to view the attendee list if they are uncomfortable with using the WordPress back end.

        Loving the plugin by the way, Cheers!

        • 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.

          • One event with multiple venues

            If I have three venues that have the same event it would be nice to list all three venues instead of three events.

              Thank you guys so much for this idea, and explaining the various use cases where it would be helpful. This has been some tremendous feedback, and helps us understand how best to address your needs.

              Some of you will benefit best from our upcoming templating feature, which would allow you to easily duplicate event details from one event to another while changing only the things that vary, such as a venue. Others will no doubt enjoy the ability to link arbitrary events together as one event series. This might be ideal for conventions and large events with multiple days and facilities. This too is an upcoming feature.

              The rest would clearly enjoy the ability to have just one event with multiple venues, as you can do with organizers. Thanks to all of your excellent feedback this too is now a feature on our roadmap. It will likely be implemented as…

            • Improve the Events Aggregators "built-in REST API" to allow create/delete/update of events from a JSON feed

              Improve the Events Aggregators "built-in REST API" to allow create/delete/update of events from a JSON feed that is NOT ECP.

                    • Add a language configuration for Google Maps links

                      The google map link in venue info has now a parameter hl=en. It would be great to be able to configure it to use any language.

                      • Feature event thumbnail link

                        Hi,

                        first of all The Events Calendar is really great plugin.

                        I am using for all events the function Feature Event to show the thumbnail picture in the widget area. Right now I can go the event detail only if I click on the Event name. What I need is to have link also on the thumbnail picture. Especialy on mobile users try to click on picture but there is no link.

                        Can you please add this feature?

                        • Option on recurring events which allows the event to maintain it's own details within the recurring series

                          Would be nice to have a checkbox or other option on recurring events which allows for that instance of a recurring event to maintain it's own details without removing that event from the recurring series.

                          • Year View

                            I have had users asking for a year view -- for planning purposes. They are able to go from month to month, but occasionally events run over month lines they lose concentration clicking from month to month. Plus, it does give an over-all view when making assessments and yearly time considerations.
                            Plus, it seems like it might be a fairly easy addition -- just a screen shot of all the months together.

                              Thank you guys so much for your feedback. Work on this is about 50% complete.

                              However, when we reanalyzed our priorities we realized that some of our new features, like year view, should be put on hold for now to make time for some higher impact endeavors. We are currently focused on bug fixes, architecture improvements, and polishing our current UI. While these improvements are not as “flashy” as new features like year view, they are helping a significantly greater portion of our users than this sort of new feature. Thus, we have to focus on these for a while longer. Once those tasks are complete we will have some extra time for exciting things like finishing year view.

                              Cheers!

                              Add a recurring event option to CSV uploads so that you can add recurring events as currently to have to add the event multiple times.

                                This is something we are currently investivating to see how feasible it is. We would love to add this ability, but due to the complexity of recurrence patterns it may not be possible to import these via CSV, at least without making it so complex it has a huge learning curve and is a pain to work with. If we deem this possible then we would definitely like to build it. :)

                                Thanks for sharing the idea!
