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.

I suggest you ...

  1. Please provide an option (maybe an extension) to use abbreviations in US & Canadian state/province names

    Please provide an option (maybe an extension) to use abbreviations in US & Canadian state/province names: New Hampshire (NH), South Carolina (SC), British Columbia (BC), Prince Edward Island (PE).
    Many websites (including ours) use the abbreviations instead of the default full state name, which is a clumsy workaround and results in a dotted line under SC, BC, etc. (unable to reproduce this here).

  3. Add dates to tooltip in "Display all events with the same venue" extension

    The tooltip now displays:

    Event (2)
    Event (3)
    Address: 123 Main St (No city)
    Would like to see:
    Event (1) ... Date

  5. Separate data away from wordpress post meta database tables into independent tables

    A giant way to speed up the performance of events calendar plugin: store the data in dedicated database tables instead of wordpress' post meta.

    Woocommerce just did this and I think all plugin developers who potentially have a lot of data to store should, too:
    https://wptavern.com/woocommerce-custom-product-tables-plugin-now-in-beta-boasts-30-faster-page-loads

    They’re claiming a 30% boost but I ran some tests after migrating test data on a development site with your plugins and I easily got even better performance increase benchmarks! This is a really good idea that you guys would greatly benefit from implementing because the more events that are stored using the current…

  7. Meet accessibility criteria

    The following accessibility issues have been identified:

    Color
    – Link text – green link text on white background provides insufficient contrast (NOTE: this issue is caused by the theme rather than the plugin per se) (Hemingway theme).
    – On the “Welcome” page, on the video, the headings lack sufficient color contrast (blue text on black).
    – On the “Add New Event” page, in the “Date & Time” section, the hint appears to lack sufficient color contrast (light gray on white).
    – On the “Tags” page, the “Add New Tag” button seems to provide insufficient color contrast (white text on blue). …

  8. Add option to reorder zip and city for certain countries

    In quite a few european countries, the usual (and also "correct" in terms of what postal services expect on an envelope) way to write addresses is like this:

    Venue Name
    Street 23
    12345 City
    Country

    While the notation of street and number ("123, Park Avenue" vs. "Hauptstraße 17") isn’t an issue (since it’s only one field in the database), addresses like "Berlin, 12345 Deutschland" (instead of the correct "12345 Berlin, Deutschland" are quite disturbing.

    I am aware that src/views/modules/address.php could be customized by the user, but I would strongly suggest to add an option to reorder zip and city. This…

  9. customize shortcode colors

    I used the WP customizer to style the default event page, but those settings don’t carry over when using shortcodes on other website pages. Without being able to set the style (primarily the bg colors for tables, title colors, cal info text etc) for the various calendar instances when using shortcodes, I'm unable to use them at all since they don't match the branding of my client site (currently using Avada theme) and are thus difficult to read by default. The purpose of me using a premium plug-in like this is to avoid having to customize theme files and stylesheets,…

  10. 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!

  11. RSS Category Filter

    Ability to filter RSS feed by category.

    We use ECPro & Tickets Plus to manage all our events (a mixture of public and private). Would like to be able to filter by category so that we can easily market events to people interested in a particular type of training course via integration with our ESP. At present it's unusable as using the RSS feed provides links to private training courses and doesn't allow us to target people with courses that might be relevant to them.

    I have seen admin comments that other technologies are being introduced but no further information…

  12. More sophisticated related events results

    This is an idea to improve the “related events” feature on Event Calendar.

    As of today, this feature basically only relies on categories and tags to suggest related events, which is very basic to say the least. There are free WP Plugin out there like “Yet Another Related Posts Plugin” that are based on a customizable algorithm to suggest related posts based on more than simple categories and tags.

    For instance, I could imagine that in addition to categories and tags, related events could be based on geography (ex: other events in Colorado / other events within 80 miles from…

  13. customize color for tribe-events-list-separator-month

    I would like to be able to customize the color for the class : tribe-events-list-separator-month

    Being able to change the BG color/styling would be very handy indeed for a site that doesn't use white as it's BG.

    Thanks!

  14. custom coloring for shortcode tribe_events_list

    Be able to change the colors on the tribe_events_list shortcode date graphic and event title without having to use custom CSS or other coding. Or provide a support answer for this issue with the CSS required so that we can easily grab, modify and paste into our website custom CSS.

  15. Implement automatic redirects for events that have passed and been deleted

    We run events across the country and when these events pass they are deleted and return a 404 page when crawled by Google. I suggest you implement an option within the settings for an event to "redirect to this page after deleted" and then a field to input the redirect url.

  16. 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!

  17. elementor

    Elementor is the biggest thing to hit Wordpress and is growing in popularity and ability on day by day basis.

    It's time that Tribe should make Elementor a priority for easy integration and allow the non-intermediate users the ability to adapt their websites.

    I am sure a simple widget plugin to bring in the relevant meta data would suffice to start

  18. Bring an Android & iOS app for adding Events directly to website.

    Greetings,
    I am writing this to give you a suggestion to develop an Android and iOS app for your Event Plugin. I am a freelancer an often use this plugin for my clients as I love it. Unfortunately, Many Clients do not want to login to their dashboard to add an event. They often say if there is any way to add events from mobile phone or if they can add an event on Google Calendar, it should be added on Website Events page too on auto. So I face such feedback. Today I thought to give you a suggestion…

  20. "Move to trash events older than" setting - option to make this user defined.

    We need a way to have past events moved to the trash, but 3 months is too long of a time period. It would be much more useful if that field was user definable. Even 1 day would be better... but an option to trash events that are over would be a better option for us.
