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 Permissions & Capabilities for Ticket Fieldsets

    Currently Permissions can be added for:
    - Events
    - Venues
    - Organisers

    https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/admin-roles-and-permissions/

    However there are no capabilities for "Ticket Fieldsets" therefore it uses the "edit_posts" functionality.

    You are therefore unable to segment these users from being able to also edit posts.

    Would be good to have a set of capabilities for ticket fieldsets
    i.e.

    edittribeticket
    readtribeticket
    deletetribeticket
    deletetribeticket
    edittribeticket
    editotherstribeticket
    delete
    otherstribeticket
    publishtribeticket
    editpublishedtribeticket
    delete
    publishedtribeticket
    deleteprivatetribeticket
    edit
    privatetribeticket
    readprivatetribe_ticket

  2. enable selection of multiple saved fieldsets

    When creating custom attendee information, enable the ability to select more than one saved fieldset. Right now there is only the option to select one, and then the ability to add saved fieldsets goes away. I'd like to be able to add multiple (such as Guest Contact & Meal Preference).

  3. More types and validation options for ticket fieldsets

    The ability to save "ticket fieldsets" for re-use is a great time-saver. However, I find myself wanting to have more options for field types and validation options.

    Some examples:

    1) number field type
    2) email validation (could be as simple as validating that entered string is xxx@yyy.zzz where zzz is a valid TLD)
    3) phone number validation
    4) date validation
    5) custom validation

    Thanks!

  4. Add an opt-in checkbox for RSVP confirmation email

    We'd like to add the emails of people who RSVP to our MailChimp lists, but we would need them to opt-in first. We want to do this through the RSVP confirmation email, rather than asking for emails of all attendees, which doesn't work because then we'd be asking the registrant to subscribe friends to a list. So we would need a checkbox on the front end with an editable message, and for that to come through on the export.

  5. Please allow passbook support

    It would be great if the QR tickets which are offered in he ticket pro plugin could be supported by passbook. It's so convenient. Most of my mobile ticket purchasers are on iPhone so it would be great to offer this function and the android equivalent.

  6. allow the option to add attendee information to the emailed tickets and admin confirmation.

    Thank you for the ability to collect Attendee Information i.e., First and Last Name of multiple tickets to the actual purchase process prior to check out. Now, how about an option to add that collected information to either the Attendee Ticket and / or the Administrator email?

  7. Conditional fields

    We suggest to implement conditional fields in the form, so that it would be possible to show a specific dropdown list or another depending on the content of the main dropdown list

  8. Ability to configure end date/time for editing of ticket attendee information

    We run an event and collect attendee information that must be submitted to the venue x days in advance of the event. It would be very helpful if we could configure an end date/time for the ability to edit attendee information for a given event/ticket.

    Also, it appears that attendee information is currently editable indefinitely. I would recommend that the ability to edit attendee information be disabled by default once the event has occurred. Leaving open the ability to edit attendee information indefinitely opens the possibility that reports on past event attendees could have incorrect information (not likely, but possible).

  9. Include the time and date that an attendee was checked in

    I'm using Event Tickets Plus with woocommerce to sell tickets to a daily event, admission to a museum. I am not using event calendar pro at all. I would like to be able to see the time and date that a ticket was checked in on the attendee list, not just the date the ticket was sold on, because they can use the ticket when they want. I want to be able to sort by date or use a date picker, and to be able to export that data and see the check-in date on there also. We want to…

  10. Add support for Name Your Price in Event Tickets Plus for charity events (requires woo commerce name your price)

    Add support for Name Your Price in Event Tickets Plus for charity events (requires woo commerce name your price)
    This allows you to create an event with a ticket. The ticket has a suggested price, but allows the buyer to buy it for whatever price they want. In essence it is a donation for an event

  13. Print name badges with QR code from attendee list

    We use Events Tickets Plus with woocommerce and POS. During events we sell tickets to future events as well as products. We'd like to print name badges with the ticket QR code. We can then use the POS to scan the bar code and pull up attendee account info to easily process additional sales.

  14. Presales/Pre-event registration/Place deposit for a ticket

    Add the ability to place a deposit as part of a pre-event registration.

    I.E. "Secure a spot at this year's Event with a $50.00 deposit"

    This would also require a way to pay the Balance of the Event cost at a later date.

  15. Allow paper/non-virtual tickets

    We mail out physical tickets for our events (there are a few reasons for that, besides we don't have a scanning / check-in option available at the moment). There is a small delivery charge that we add to the purchased order unless the ticket is picked up from the office. The shipping option is not available if the ticket is virtual. I like the virtual option too for when tickets are bought closer to the event and we don't have time to mail them out. Hope this helps. Thanks!

  17. Attendees list in alphabetical order

    It would be helpful if the attendees list in WooTickets could be sorted by alphabetical order either by first or last name.

  18. Shortcode or widget to show available events (not sold out)

    I would love to display only events with available tickets on my front page. This would require hiding sold out events in a widget or shortcode.

    We tend to have 20+ sold out events in any given month, so I prefer to show only what events are available. I am sure I am not the only one.

    Howdy!

    We wanted to point out Edgar’s easy to use implementation of this feature. For WooCommerce Tickets users you can use the 3rd party WooCommerce plugin: Dynamic Pricing and Discounts ( http://m.tri.be/18gz ). This plugin allows you to configure a discount for logged in users for all WooCommerce products, including Tickets.

    Thanks again for reaching out about this. Hopefully that solution will help at least some of you get the feature you wanted right now.

    Cheers!

  20. Synchronize Event Categories and Woocommerce Product Categories for Event Tickets items

    Add ability to map Event categories to Product categories so that when new tickets are added to an Event, they will automatically be added to a specific product category as well. This is most useful in cases of defining discount and coupon rules, to allow certain types of events to have coupon codes apply without requiring manual editing of ticket products after creation. Alternatively, provide a "Categories" selection box to the Ticket creation form, instead of automatic synchronization.
