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. 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.

    • You should add pay to submit event.

      Some magazines charge to post events. If this connected with woo commerce or something payment gateway we can charge for people to post their events.

      • Multiple day events with 1 day, 2 das or more days variation of ticket

        I organize event where i have:
        - 1 day tickets for 5€ (for example Friday ticket)
        - free tickets for children (Friday ticket)
        - Saturday ticket for 5€
        - Saturday ticket for children for free
        - 2 days ticket for 8€ (Friday + Saturday)
        - same for children...

        So, how i should or is it possible to set the space that it will calculate right numbers of free places?
        So if there are 100 places and I sell 1 ticket for Friday, there will be 99 tickets for Friday (paid or free for kids) and 100 tickets for Saturday. And…

        • Allow different images for recurring events

          It would be great if recurring events could have different images set for them, for example being able to set a different image for a different date range to create some variety. Or to allow for a slider or rotating set of images to create variety. We have some ongoing classes that occur several times a week and when they all have the same image and there aren't other events to break up the look it starts to get a little ridiculous looking in the list view. I realize for event recognition this may not be optimal for some recurring…

            • Add featured image to Events widget

              We have the ability to choose lots of different data to display or hide... all except image. I really want to show my next three events with images and details below instead of the clunky calendar graphic with the date. it just doesn't look good.

              • allow entire months to be selected in non-month views

                When clicking the date Selector in either Map or List, I can’t seem to select an entire month. When clicking the desired Month, it will not update the date field until an individual date is selected. The ability to select an entire month’s worth of events in either view would be be preferable to my visitors.

                Is there anything that can be done about these items?

                • Woocommerce: Sales by Event Category Report

                  Hi there,

                  I would like to be able to see a report within Woocommerce: Sales by Event Category.

                  At the moment this is a feature within the Events Calendar for Event Categories, but there is no way to measure the sales of a specific category. Therefore if we invest Google marketing into a specific event category there is no easy evaluation of sales.

                  At the moment you can search by specific event, but we have 100s of events.

                  Cheers.

                  • Private event

                    Saw some discussion for private calendar. Would be great to have private events for logged in members without needing to add a patch. For example, set the event to published as private which would then be viewable by members only.

                    Perhaps this is already a feature?

                    • Upcoming Events Sidebar Widget Needs to be Clickable to Open Full Calendar

                      Please make it so when people click on the top of the calendar image of the sidebar widget it opens the page with the full calendar -- or make it so I can set this up.

                      Invariably I watch people new to my site try to do this. I have tried to do it. Other calendars do it. Why doesn't the Event Calendar do it. Did I just miss not setting it up right?

                      Thank you.

                      • Event statistics report

                        Our organization would like an easy way to compile event statistics for a specific time period (calendar year, for example). TEC doesn't include any such reporting functionality and I'm not aware of any 3rd party solutions to this other than using an SQL tool.

                        Data that we would be interested in includes:

                        * number of events in the time period
                        * number of tickets sold in the time period
                        * total revenue for the time period

                        Thanks!

                        • Private Link Events without need to log in

                          We had an organization we wanted to allow to purchase tickets before going on sale to the public. However the event gets posted to our calendar and we'd rather it not be seen by the public until the general sale. This seems like something many business and organizations might want.

                            • Add 'Series starts on' field for recurring Event Series

                              Irregular recurring events cannot be added (easily) using the current Event Series tabs (Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly, Once).

                              How about for each Event Series rule, adding a 'Series starts on' feature to match the existing 'Series ends on' field? This would allow one rule to manage the infinitely weekend series, then another rule to manage irregular sessions such as the school holiday period.

                              E.g.
                              Rule 1: Event Series >…

                                I'm looking to display the full month calendar view for a venue, whereby I can then use the tribe_events shortcode to display a calendar on each venue page on my site (think business listing site).

                                As per this thread, this is not currently possible with tribe_events. It was suggested I use the Venus feature and tribe_featured_venue shortcode, but that a) doesn't allow for full month view and b) duplicates functionality of my listing theme.

                                    • Fix the Title column width on Events

                                      The width on the Event title column is way too small. My title ends up wrapping and making each letter be on a new line.
