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. Shortcode for Ticket Purchase (Eventbrite, etc.)

    While the Events Calendar is quite robust, we'll sometimes have standalone pages for larger events. Purchasing tickets might be easier on those pages than on a brief synopsis in The Events Calendar.

    Could we have a shortcode to display Eventbrite/etc. tickets on posts/pages?

    Anchors don't work well with most naming structures.

    Hello all,

    Thank you for your votes and comments.
    We would love to see more votes on this one.

    Also, as it stands, please note that for RSVP and Event Tickets plus tickets, it is already possible to add them to posts, pages and custom post types (not via a shortcode, but by selecting the appropriate setting under the Events > Settings > Tickets tab)

    Cheers

  3. Add text that the user would see prior to Start Sale date

    Add one text field to the ticket area that would incorporate the "Start Sale" field to display a message to the visitor if they view the event before that date.

    As it is now, the visitor reads about the event, sees all the When and Where details... and then wonders what they're missing and why they can't purchase/sign up. All they need is a message: "Registration will begin on %StartSale% -- please check back!"

  4. hide event tickets from wordpress & woocommerce search

    Since I run a business that sells services, online courses and physical products next to tickets for small workshops and live courses, and find that in the search results there are a lot of tickets for events (both future and past events) that I really don't want in that results. I can't just filter out the product CPT, because I also have other products in store, I do want to show.

    So I really need something (preverably a setting) to prevent event tickets from appearing in the search result (both the general WP-search and the WooCommerce Search). Whatever sollution should…

  5. Enable an option for GST calculation in Tickets Plus price displays

    Gday Tribe forumites

    In Australia, it is mandatory to display pricing including GST.

    The easiest way to add data is to put the ex GST price in (eg. $98) and let the computer do the maths to display the GST inclusive price ($107.80).

    The Tickets plus combination with WooCommerce allows one of the frontend display areas to display the GST inclusive, and I suspect this is WooCommerce coding.

    However, the primary area for the ticket price does not calculate, it shows the original input.

    Here is a screenshot: https://screencast.com/t/ZBmqzCspXbMb

    I'd like a radio button option that overrides the input (default)…

  6. Email customers once they are checked in

    This would be a really handy feature. A customisable email along the lines of "Thanks for attending {Event Name} on {Date}"... etc.

  7. Show event dates in woocommerce order list

    As asked here: https://theeventscalendar.com/support/forums/topic/adding-event-date-event-name-to-woocommerce-order-list/

    Hi there, I have seen in some other event/booking plug-ins that work with WooCommerce that the stored event date (some add the event name too) is displayed in the order list – in the part that displays the details of buyers like name, address, payment method AND event date.

    Is there any chance to pick-up that stored information and display it in the WooCommerce order list? if not yet, any plans to implement this in the future?
