Shortcode ability for simple implimentation on any page/post.
The one thing some competitors have over tri.be is offering ability to implement across existing pages using short codes which call either forms, or categories or most certain modular aspects. Currently there's way too much fiddling around with CSS and code to get things looking right - other than this Events Calendar trumps!
There is a widget available for latest events, but what if i want a limited number of latest events on a page or may be that shortcode could run with .php files.
My use case is to build the descripton of a given class I offer once. Each class isn't recurring, but this way users can build the details of a given event once. I realize that you can duplicate the events once built, but if I change an aspect of the class, things to bring, etc. I have to touch all of the calendar events now.
It would be awesome to have the flexibility to pull the calendar to a page (eg. Through shortcode).
Currently I have to mess around the codes to achieve this so I can add text before or after just the main calendar page when I am using the default page template and not the ecp page template. And this explains why I am not using the "add text before/ after HTML" fields on the admin panel.

Starting with the next release we are beginning our rollout of shortcodes. First we are making the Mini Calendar widget embeddable, with the rest of the widgets in followup releases. We are also hard at work on making the the full calendar views, such as Month, List, etc. embeddable via shortcode. That is no small undertaking and requires some significant underlying architectural changes. It will be revealed in early 2015. This will allow you to embed the main calendar view with the Tribe Bar on other pages, including your home page. Thanks for all the feedback! We are very excited to release this as soon as it’s ready.
Much love for full calender short code with category filter options.
@Anonymous That is a cool idea being able to add the ticket box. It is not currently planned though. You should make a separate feature request for that.
I want to assure everyone that this is still incredibly important to us and we are listening. We have begun work and will release the finished product as soon as we can. Still no hard release date though.

I'd like to be able to place the tickets box, or the 'add to cart' buttons for tickets - in pages or posts... a shortcode for that would be great.
Ohh! this is great! hopefully we listen and perform these tasks quickly
Just wanted to let you know that with Events Calendar PRO version 3.9 (released today!) you can use the shortcode [tribe_mini_calendar] to add our calendar widget outside of sidebars. We hope that will be helpful for you! And we are still working on further shortcode functionality.

@saji We are not certain yet. We do our very best to minimize the impact to the API whenever possible. Once we get closer to the release any significant API changes made will be documented, and posted to our Release Notes blog prior to release. We will outline changes you should be made aware of.
@Rob We are keen to launch this as soon as possible too.

This might solve a lot of other requests like custom sidebars etc as we'd be able to add to any page design of our own! Personally I'm hoping for Jan 2014!!
Totally agree with providing shortcodes so that our page will have breadcrumbs and sidebar layouts via out theme. 2015 hurry up!
Thats good news but with the change in underlying architecture, will that effect any development made using funcitons in the doc?
Wait. TWENTY FIFTEEN?!?!?

Wow. I'm pretty disappointed to purchase TEC and Woocomerce Tickets yesterday and discover critical & obvious features like this have been on the "maybe, someday" list for over a year. :(

After hundreds of requests and several years we still don't have barcodes on tickets - so damn frustrated
Just the basic shortcodes for generating event lists with choice of category would be enough for us! Thanks.
I just assumed that this was a feature. Here's another vote for yes
Can you guys give an estimate on this? the Events Rocket solution isnt very good...just give us a ball park - Winter 2014?
I would REALLY like to see this!!!!!!!!!
This is really what I need.... any time estimates?

It appears this has been planned for a long time. Any timeline or time frame so people can plan?
