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. Hidden Tickets

    Have the ability to "hide" tickets or have tickets that are only available to order through the back-end.

    Use Case:

    We run events where the attendees have multiple options available to them which will affect the price. There are in excess of 100 possible variations for each event so, with the very manual task of creating tickets and with the poor UX that this would create, having each variation listed is not an option. As such, we are currently using a "Manual Order" ticket that we can manipulate accordingly from the back end. As it stands, we have to set…

  2. Single Venue Page Events shows NO date or time

    All of the events for a venue are listed on a single venue page, but there is no date or time for the events listed.

  3. 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....

  4. Facebook import images (both organiser thumb and event thumbs)

    Would be great to get related images from the facebook import.

    Would also be great to grab the event and organisers banner images as well as their thumbails if possible...

    That way when you go to event organiser the banner could be displayed as their picture, and in search thumbnail it could use their thumbnail images (profile images of org and event)

  5. Today's Events widget

    I've seen discussions from 2013 regarding how to make Events Calenar PRO display Today's Events in a sidebar by changing code. It would be great if the This Week's Events widget would have a checkbox to display Today's Events instead of the entire week.

  6. Provide "Fee option default" setting to community event creators and site admin in your Community Tickets plugin.

    I was wondering if we could give community event creators the options of letting customers pay for the fees or absorb the fee themselves. This means that when an event is posted by the community they can choose this option so customers do not have to pay extra

    A few months back we requested clarification on how this would work. But since we have not heard back we are going to close it for now. If you would like something similar please add it as a new idea so we can review it. The more specific you are the better. :)

  7. Import "Get Tickets" link from Facebook event posts

    I purchased Events Aggregator and was shocked to find it doesn't import the "Get Tickets" link from the Facebook event, according to this forum.

    This is a major disappointment, IMHO. This function should be added or else the lack of this function should be disclosed in the plug in description. It defeats the purpose of this plug in.

    The whole idea of the plug in is to support automation and prevent duplicate data entry. Yet, I have to enter the link to buy tickets manually on my WP site for each event? Doesn't make any sense.

  8. Make "Events Calendar Pro" a Standalone Plugin

    Over the years, The Events Calendar Pro (paid plugin) has become too dependent on The Events Calendar (free plugin). That is, you cannot use TEC Pro without installing TEC first.

    Recommend converting The Events Calendar Pro into a standalone plugin for the following reasons:

    (1) Less bloatware.
    (2) Fewer plugins to manage on the back-end.
    (3) Fewer plugin conflicts to worry about.
    (4) Easier to troubleshoot plugin conflicts or problems in the back-end.
    (5) Opportunity to streamline (make more efficient) each plugin (independently from each other).
    (6) Last, but not the least, a simpler code and faster processing time which…

  9. Add option to show the featured image on the map view

    It would be great to have an option that would allow us to display the event image for the event in map view in the event pop up.

    Or it would be nice to at least have an easy way to format the popup that is displayed when a pin is clicked.

  10. Auto Import Event costs when importing from Meetup.com

    I have my site setup to import events from meetup.com into the Events Calendar. I’m also using Event Tickets plus for ticketing.
    Is it possible to have the event cost information come in as well with the event info so we don't have to type it in again?
    Reduces redundancy especially when importing large number of events!! All other information is imported, so only makes sense.

  12. recurring conditions enhnaced

    I would like to see additional conditions to exclude weekends (and holidays) from recurring events. So on holidays I need to set recurring to Jan 1 and have event show Monday Jan 3 if 1st fell on a Sat. I need the opposite for pay schedules. We are paid the 7th and 22nd unless those days fall on holidays or weekends in which we get paid up to 3 days earlier if payday fell on Monday holiday.

    Adding an excel type function like workday() would be great.

  13. TEC & TECPro Versioning

    The versions numbers have slipped so far apart that it is difficult to pair up the two.

    I suggest that the version follow each other through every update, even if one or the other is not updated. In the release notes, you could add a note that states "This release is only a version number update." when nothing is changed.

  14. Please add common timezone abbreviations

    It's great that time zones are supported, and that a lot of major cities are included - unfortunately there are loads that aren't.

    When adding international events, it's a major hassle to have to look up the UTC offset for those frequent occurrences where a city isn't there.

    Thankfully, it's an easy fix that'll make things much easier:

    Simply include common time zones such as EST, PDT, CET etc in the time zone selector - this will VASTLY speed up adding international events.

  15. Create a Shortcode for Tickets QR Code

    Using this similar to the [tribe-user-event-confirmations] Shortcode in the account page of the user would make sending emails with the pdf ticket having the qr code included unessesary. Most users will have their mobile with them and can open the ticket with the QR code from their account page on the day of the event.

  16. Enable forums with each Event set up

    Whenever someone sets up an Event allow the organiser to set up a members only or open forum where people can ask about who is going, what happens at the event, meet up with others for easy travel etc.

  17. Calendar Widget

    Can you make the details of the events show on the main page when they click the specific event date on the widget?

    Listing all the events on the main page and when they click the date on the widget it will show the complete information of the event.

    I do not want the whole calendar on the main page, instead just do a listing, and then when someone clicks the date on the widget, it will show the details.

    I have you understand what I'm trying to explain.

    Thanks

  19. pdf

    Allow file upload for pdf in events.
    Allow download of files for PDF files. Events often have pdf descriptions or "paper" entries. It would be nice to add this pdf (opening new window) in the administration of the event.

  20. make RSVP count toward shared capacity

    Is there a reason that RSVPs do not count against shared capacity? It would be really great if they did. I often use multiple RSVP types, and would ideally like to set a shared capacity equal to the capacity of the venue, then allow the quantity available per RSVP type to adjust based on that shared capacity.

    Thanks!
