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. 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

    • Charge for event submission and premium/featured events

      Develop a package pricing option where users could add a free event or premium event listing. Also allow for a membership option where event promoters could pay a flat monthly / annual fee and enter as many premium events as they would like.

      • Add true Subscribe Functionality for iCal & Google

        Downloading an iCal file is NOT THE SAME as a true subscribe to calendar function where users calendars are updated automatically with new events, changes to events and so forth. It's a total disappointment to find out that the other suggestion was closed when it the suggested feature was clearly not implemented. Having a static download is actually worse because users think they've subscribed and never get updates and have no reason to believe that they aren't getting the latest info.

          We are planning to add this functionality when we have some open development resources to complete it. Thank you all for your patience!

          This snippet changes the “iCal Export” buttons to be webcal:// links, which suggests to calendar applications that they should subscribe instead of downloading the .ics file.

          It requires The Events Calendar version 4.6.5 or newer.

        • Allow multi-day event exclusion for dates.

          I would love to see you allow multi-day events to allow exclusion for dates. For example a 5 day training that starts on Wednesday and ends Tuesday, excludes weekend days. You could do this the same way you exclude dates in a reoccurring event now.
