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 more filters to shortcode [tribe_events]

    Add more filters and options to the [tribe_events] shortcode so that it can be customized more.

    • Improve Photo View layout

      A major frustration when using Photo View is that if an event is slightly larger than the others it can throw out how the events are displayed on the page and rather than having dates in order, left to right across the page, they display out of order so that some rows are from left to right and other rows are from right to left. This is my favourite view but is counter intuitive for visitors to the site who expect their to be a natural order for viewing the events.

      • Reusable Event Template

        In addition to being able to define a "ticket template" as described in another feature idea (https://tribe.uservoice.com/forums/195723-feature-ideas/suggestions/3825421-reusable-ticket-defaults-profiles-as-per-venues-a), I would suggest that this same functionality be extended to events themselves as well as tickets.

        We currently use the Advanced Content Templates plugin (https://www.advancedcontenttemplates.com) for this purpose but it is limited. For example, Advanced Content Templates can't:

        - insert the event category/categories
        - insert the event tag(s)
        - insert pre-defined a ticket(s)

        Having a templating system for events and tickets would be a real time-saver for those who hold the same or similar events multiple times.

        Thanks!

          • Register multiple attendees in one purchase under separate names & email

            When someone clicks to 3 RSVPs attending - I want to have them add each individual attendee name. Right now RSVPs are only allowed to enter one name.

            • Add more features to the customizer

              Currently the customizer only allow for adding colors etc. it would be so useful to be able to use the customizer to change the tile/font/etc of a calendar view (month, week, etc.) without having to deal with css and code.

              Such a simple thing should not be so hard to implement!

              Thanks!

              • Show The Events Calendar link - configure to "open in new tab" rather than replacing the

                Would like to include the "Powered by Events Calendar Pro" link on my client's calendars (to share the love and tell the world how awesome the plugin is) however, the link needs to open in a new tab rather than replace my clients calendar page. A simple mark-up is all that is needed.

                • 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

                    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!

                        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.

                            It would be awesome to let the user safe any event to his private calendar like google calendar, outlook, yahoo. Today it seems to be possible to export an event as .ical only. But this is not comfortable.

                            Maybe it is an easy way for you to integrate a third-party plugin like https://www.addevent.com/, or you may build your own.

                            thanks, joe

                                    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!

                                        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…

                                      • Reusable Ticket Defaults/Profiles (as per Venues and Organizers)

                                        I would like to see Wootickets integrate a list of default ticket profiles, where we can fill out the commonly used fields we re-type hundreds of times. Almost all of the ticket fields could be automatically populated based on a template, with changes and variations made as needed.

                                        For my personal needs, 99% of the hundreds of tickets I create every month could be selected from a list of 8 profiles, with information being spit out for: names, description, price, start/end sales, stock, etc.

                                        The two fields that would require some consideration for advanced functionality would be:

                                        variable time frames…

                                        • 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…
