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. Community Events WPML support

    WPML is necessary for localize event websites, which are going to publish the event/ticket from frontend and sell the ticket.

  3. Community > Allow each of the multiple organizers to edit an event

    Shared Event Management

    Now that we can have multiple Organizers attached to an event, it would be nice if event editing ability could be shared among multiple submitters, either as something that could be assigned via the administrative backend, or through a "share" option that the event submitter could use, similar to the share features for Google Docs. (Submitter #1 sends an invite to member #2).

  4. Option to Auto-Approve Events from Specific Users

    I have my community calendar set to moderate all incoming events. I would like to have the option to auto-approve events by specific users that I trust.

  5. Option for a redirect to different URL after new event submission and edited events

    I understand that there is an add-on plugin to accomplish this but it should be native to the Community Events plugin.

  6. Community Events > Put only new users events in Pending Review

    In WP you can set it so that new commenters on your site get put in the moderation queue. Once a commenter has a previously approved post they can bypass the moderation queue and it will get posted immediately.

    I would like a similar feature with Community Events, where once a user has a previously approved event it will bypass Pending Review.

  7. Limit event title to x number of characters

    Long titles clutter up the calendar. It would be nice if we could force people to compose shorter cleaner titles.

  8. Community Events - Native Image/File Uploader on Submit Form

    Currently the submission form uses a default file upload but it seems it would be great if it used the default wordpres image/file uploader for usability and faster submission.

  9. Charge for event submission and premium/featured events

    Develop a package pricing option where users could add a free event or premium event listing. Also allow for a membership option where event promoters could pay a flat monthly / annual fee and enter as many premium events as they would like.

  10. Community Events: Notify Event Creator When Event Is Published

    First, collect the email address of the event creator. It would be great to add these people to our list. Second, send a notification to the event creator when it is posted. It might bring them back to the site again later.

  11. Pro Additional Fields configurable as public/private for Community Events

    Event Calendar Pro lets me add additional fields - all of which show up on the Community Events edit screen. It would be good to have an option to customize which are private (admin only and not viewable via the my events screen) and which are public. Probably has an impact on template function calls as well.

  13. Be able to send admin notifications for newly added events only

    We get admin notifications when a user submits a new event. We also get them when they change a previously submitted event. Too many emails! It would be good to have an option to not get notifications for events which have already been published.
