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. Create Community Specific Calendars

    Create a shortcode or filter where the output would limit to a specific community or venue. For example, I want to display a venue and events taking place at that venue specifically without filtering or other options to see other events hosted at other venues.

  2. pdf tickets

    One HUGE problem we have with our Event Tickets Plus setup is customers losing ticket e-mails in their Spam folders (especially if they have Hotmail accounts, making it literally the ONLY thing that Hotmail will filter as spam.)

    If the user was able to download a PDF of their ticket, or was even able to print their ticket themselves immediately after purchase, this would be solved.

  4. Reminder Emails for X Days Before Event

    Email Attendees of an event automatically with event details X days before event takes place. It would be great if this was a variable number of days.

  7. Add woocommerce cart validation for WooTickets

    Currently the wootickets plugin does not validate the product before adding it to the cart. This prevents developers from hooking cart validation properly.

    Simply replace the existing TribeWooTickets->process_front_end_tickets_form() with the following:

    /**
    * Grabs the submitted front end tickets form and adds the products
    * to the cart
    */
    public function process_front_end_tickets_form() {
    global $woocommerce;

    if ( empty( $_GET['wootickets_process'] ) || intval( $_GET['wootickets_process'] ) !== 1 || empty( $_POST['product_id'] ) )
    return;

    foreach ( (array) $_POST['product_id'] as $product_id ) {
    $quantity = isset( $_POST['quantity_' . $product_id] ) ? intval( $_POST['quantity_' . $product_id] ) : 0;
    // Apply woocommerce validation
    $passed_validation…

  8. Allow Community Events users to add tickets via frontend

    Hi,
    I am currently building a record shop website that will sell tickets for online events. We aim to branch that out into a total ticket only sub site in the future. So far I have loved working with wootickets and community events but there are some serious limitations that you might wish to consider looking at. These are mentioned in other ideas on the site here but nothing grouping the integration together.

    1. It would be great for people who add events to be able to add tickets also - setting allocation etc, as I can as admin.

  9. Add a paragraph textarea to the Additional fields types

    Being able to add a paragraph as an additional field type would be great. Currently the "text" option is very small and hard to edit larger amounts of text.

  10. Add a shortcode to display "My Events" on other pages

    I have a user dashboard for other (unrelated) items. It would be great to be able to add the users event list to this page via a shortcode.

  13. PreSale Tickets Discount

    Add the option to sell tickets for a event prior of the day of occurance only. Giving the option to sell these tickets cheaper than buying them on the day of the event. Or giving incentive making tickets cheaper one week before the event etc.

  14. Managing attendees and order information from admin

    As an admin, I need to manage attendees of an event. For example I may need to remove an attendee, or edit the contact information of an attendee, I may also need to add an attendee to an event.

    For example a company buys 4 tickets to an event, but later on finds out that one employee could not make it, the company then calls and ask admin to remove a ticket.

  15. GDPR: Include ticket field data in WP personal data export

    With GDPR taking effect tomorrow, we need a way to include provided data from ticket fields in the WordPress core personal data export.

    https://developer.wordpress.org/plugins/privacy/adding-the-personal-data-exporter-to-your-plugin/

    In addition to this, we would also need a way to erase said private info on request.

    https://developer.wordpress.org/plugins/privacy/adding-the-personal-data-eraser-to-your-plugin/

    More on the matter can be read here : https://make.wordpress.org/core/2018/05/17/4-9-6-update-guide/

  16. Better import scheduling control

    I have 300+ subscriptions updating weekly... I need to spread them out over the week, and over the day, so that I don't get too many new events all at once. Having to open each one separately is far too tedious. I would also only want updates to happen within certain hours (ie: 7am -7pm, M-F) so that notifications aren't going out in the middle of the night. A *magic* button that automatically spread them out over the specified window would be fantastic.

  19. Simple(r) checkout with PayPal & Stripe, without Woo

    Installing/maintaining/styling/troubleshooting WooCommerce seems like overkill for many applications and seems like a common criticism of Event Tickets Plus. The plugin's existing functionality (configuring & selecting multiple ticket levels and quantities) seems perfect for handing off to simpler checkout processes than Woo - namely Stripe's excellent Checkout or the ever-popular PayPal. Seems like an easy win for simpler applications.

  20. Required privacy policy or terms checkbox for tickets

    Privacy policies are required by EU law for anyone collecting personal information. This should show up automatically as a link or something on the event page. And everyone who RSVP's or buys tickets for an event should have to tick a box where they accept the privacy policy.
