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. Change month view search results to display month of first event occurrence

    On our website we have chosen Month View as our default calendar view. When a user searches an event that occurs in a future month, they see nothing because search results always display the current month. The user thinks the event doesn't exist, in cases where the event happens in a future month.

    We'd like to request this be changed so that search results display the month of the first occurrence of the event... a more effective means to display results and improve user experience.

    Thanks for considering!

  2. Shortcode > Featured Organizer

    As well as having a tribefeaturedvenue shortcode it would be great if there was a featured organiser. I know you can create a list of organisers and venues using the shortcode plugin but I want specific results. Fingers crossed

  3. Improve the search suggestions in a location search bar so they appear "as you type".

    A search suggestion in the location search bar needs improvement. Now the suggestions appear after the user hit "Find Events".
    What is a reasoning behind suppressing google snappy suggestions as one types? (as you use theirs api?)
    I have used your site as a test http://wpshindig.com/events/ so it is not the problem with my server.
    The search suggestions would solve a lot of problems and requests reported here about misinterpretation of the city. It would also increase the user awareness on how the search should be phrased. On top of it it would feel more interactive and 21 century;) and…

  4. Add tribe_edit_category capability for user roles

    Allow control of category capability as you do for venue, organizer, e.g. edittribeorganizer, so we can prevent editors from adding or changing calendar categories.

  5. Timeline View/display events in a timeline

    Add the ability to display event in a continuous timeline. Perhaps something like this - http://theme-fusion.com/avada/timeline-full-width/ for the type of layout

  6. Show post-author and categories in main blog loop

    The post-author and categories should also be shown for events, which are shown in the main blog loop (just like regular posts).

  8. Use Organizer's Featured Image as the Event's Featured Image

    In cases where you don't upload or don't select a featured image for an event, use the organizer's featured image.

    Many themes allow you to use a post's featured image in different scenarios: home page sliders, widgets, archive pages etc.

  9. WP-Admin listing of venues and organizers with more columns/data

    I would like to see more data fields in the admin dashboard listings for my venues and organizers, such as:

    venues: address, city, hyperlink, phone number
    organizers: name, email, web page, phone

    Is that already possible?

  10. Create black out dates for community submitted events, such as holidays

    Allow for an event to have a "priority" that can override & block out other events on that day

    As an example ... I have a fitness center client that has 40 recurring events and they fall on the same day of the week as Christmas. It would be great to set up "Christmas" to be the main event that 1 day and override all the other events that are recurring so we don't have to modify the 40 events because they are closed on that holiday.

  11. Choose Which Events Show on Blog, Rather than All or None

    Maybe you could see a window with a list of all the events, and check which ones to add to the blog, or you could choose an event category whose events would show on the blog.

  12. Allow different page layouts for calendar views and single events

    I would love if the calendar was one page layout (in my case full width) and an event page a different one (in my case with a sidebar). The calendar needs lots of room so it makes it sense to display it full width but for an event page I would like to show ads and other content in a sidebar.

  13. Add ability to Tweet event posts when published

    Hook into the WordPress JetPack Publicize plugin or to WP-to-Twitter plugin to tweet event posts when they are published. This should hook to the WP Shortlinks feature (wp.me) or to Twitter's shortener (t.co) so links can easily be included in the tweet.
