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. Additional Fields Should Support Date Fields

    I would LOVE IT if additional fields supported dates and date ranges, and the filter bar would search in a date rage.

    For instance, our events have a registration open and close date, but we're not responsible for ticketing. To allow our users to see what events have opened recently would be huge. :)

  2. Allow HTML markup in Additional Fields

    It would be very helpful to be able to use HTML markup and styling in text Additional Fields. I wanted to enter a set of links as a styled list, the result was a string of comma-separated links.

  3. +Export Events button on category page to export category events only

    At the moment, the +Export Events button on a category page adds every single event (on the whole calendar) to your diary (which is a disaster). Would be great if the +Export Events button on category pages only exported the events listed in that category.

  4. Use Google Maps to autocomplete venue address boxes

    Having many venues it is a lot of pain to enter each adress. I have seen many plug ins that have a better way to do it. They offer just one line with google maps autocomplete to enter the adress! Thats the way it should be I think.Can provide screen shot.

  5. Have Calendar Widget show next 5 events regardless of month

    in the calendar widget there are "only" shown events that are in the future of the current month. (I selected to show 5)
    but if there are events in the following months and not in the present, it does only show the calendar, but not the next events.
    sure, if I "switch" the month in the widget to another month, the events of this future or past month are shown, but the customers are lazy, they want to have it like:
    when calling the site, show the X(5 in my case) upcoming events and only if i switch to future…

  6. Create an alternative list of States - Provinces the style of the of Countries.

    The creation of an alternative list of states would serve all users to create a list of your Country Provinces and thus can even limit state is directed to the Calendar Eventes and that Country .

    Eg . I live in Spain in the province of Navarra and just want to include events from my province and bordering this would be in Spain ( Gipuzkoa , La Rioja , Zaragoza, Alava,
    Huesca ) and France (Pyrenees-Atlantiques , Hautes Pyrenees ) .

    Since other lists Countries already implemented , I select :
    ES, Spain
    FR, France

    With an alternative list of…

  7. Provide a way to set an indeterminate time/TBA/TBD for events

    An indeterminate time would be useful for placeholder-style events where the specific details aren't known. A plugin-level setting for the text to display, e.g. "TBA", would be nice too.

  8. Advanced List Widget: [tribe_events_list] to allow category=Yes and Tags=yes

    We use the [tribeeventslist] both for individual categories event listings and also the combined list of events. For the latter it would be great to be able to display the category name.
    It doesn't seem that you can currently add either the category or the tags as extra information to the view for this shortcode?

  9. Add a language configuration for Google Maps links

    The google map link in venue info has now a parameter hl=en. It would be great to be able to configure it to use any language.
