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. 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).

  2. Allow save custom recurrence rule set and apply to new event

    I'd like to be able to create a set of recurrence rules, with both regular occurrences and exclusions - and then save them as a custom named ruleset that I can apply to another event.

    We have many events that run on a regular basis outside of school term-times. We can manually exclude the dates that fall within school holidays, but it would be a massive timesaver to only have to do this once and save it as for example "school holidays 2018" so that we can apply this custom set of rules to any other event. This has broader…

  3. 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…

  4. 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,…

  5. 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…

  6. custom coloring for shortcode tribe_events_list

    Be able to change the colors on the tribeeventslist 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.

  7. 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…

  8. allow user to save/star events

    Allow users to save, star or favourite events. So they can plan which events they would like to attend. This would be a huge value-add to the end user where there are a lot of events to choose from and they may want to attend a few.

  9. Events categories and events dates in the permalink structure

    For a better SEO friendly URL structure I suggest the customization of the permalink structure including the category for the single event and maybe the date of th event too.

  10. Satellite view for Google maps

    Allow the map view to be set as either satellite or road map, instead of defaulting to road map.

  11. 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.

  12. 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!

  13. Featured Image for Calendar Share

    Featured Image for Calendar Share

    If you want to share your calendar on Social Media (like LinkedIn or Facebook) those sites will automatically pick up an image to display whether you like it or not.

    At the moment there is no way to control that image in the Calendar settings. By default Facebook or Linkedin will just pick up the first available image from your website which in most cases, will have nothing to do with your Events Calendar.

    All Tribe need to do is add the option in settings to upload an image you want to display when you…

  14. Shortcode to display all Event Categories used

    I would love to see a shortcode that scrobbles all event categories used (with filter parameters built in, of course) in much the same way that Wordpress can scrobble all post categories by default in a sidebar widget. Also, some kind of automated Javascript that gives you the option (maybe in the settings or back-end) to specify which pages you'd like to display the event category widget on (i.e. all event-related pages, everything under /event and /events) would be awesome.

    I could definitely see the utility of this feature in other applications besides just a sidebar event categories widget, but…

  15. Allow x Number of Upcoming Recurring Events to Display

    It would be great to be able to show more than just only one upcoming event in a recurring series. Ideally this would be per recurring event series so you could customize it different for different recurring events. This would be helpful in situations where one recurring event dominates the calendar for the next few weeks, but you still want to be able to show more than just one.

  16. Allow Featured Events to Display at the Top of the Event List Widget

    The display from the Event List widget looks better when there is a Featured Event with image at the top. Therefore, I would like an option to show the next Featured Event (or two or three) at top, followed by the non-featured events.

    I can almost do this now by using two Event List widgets, one above the other. The top one can be set to "limit to featured events only." If the the bottom widget could be set to "limit to non-featured events," that would do the trick.

  17. Date Picker for Recurring Events as an option

    I am part of a nationwide franchise that has a co-op website for public events. There's a feature that we on on THAT calendar that is INCREDIBLE for recurring events as well as being very flexible for custom date rules.

    We can, much like this one, select various rules such as every 1st Wednesday of the month, or every other Tuesday, etc.

    However, when we edit an event, date picker calendars will pop up with every day/date the event is scheduled for. We can simply click on a date to remove ONE or MORE of the current scheduled events, AND…

  18. Recurrence vs. repeating events

    Scenario: A singe event that spans several days at the same time. For example a 3-day seminar or class that is 9:00 am - 3:00 pm on all three days.

    As it stands now, when you setup the recurrence pattern, on the calendar it looks like three separate events on separate dates. I would be nice to see it span the dates. More so, if you set a price, on the surface it looks like the price is 'X' amount for each day and not for the entire event.

    I have seen this functionality in other premium event calendars.

  19. Google Rich Cards Support?

    Google is now going to be having Rich Cards, the evolution of rich snippets. It would be great to be an early adopter and have this support. There is going to be a sitemap feature to these as well with webmaster tools preview.

    Note: right not its only for recipes and movies, but im sure they'll be rolling more out.

  20. Option to automatically list events near to user

    The Map View page ordinarily shows a list of upcoming events, until a user input a location into the "Near/Location" field. I would like to automatically fillout the location field for the user when they hit the default map view page. Using geocoding of the visitors IP, or perhaps via a location request, we can retrieve the users location to fillout this field. You could toggle this option on/off in the settings area.
