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. Hide remaining tickets

    I want to hide the number of remaining tickets, until a certain threshold is met.

    At the moment I do that by adding that threshold in src/views/wootickets/tickets.php in line 131
    if ( $remaining && $remaining < $threshold)

    It would be nice though, if that threshold could be somehow defined in the Wordpress backend, so that I can for example define a global threshold and can turn that functionality to hide on or off. (Like in woocommerce).
    In addition it would be nice, if for each ticket the threshold could be set individually.
    So for example, the check is then performed. …

  2. Event Tickets Plus/WooCommerce. I would like to be able to access tickets in WooCommerce store and The Events Calendar.

    I have Event Calendar Pro, Event Tickets Plus, and WooCommerce. Currently, tickets can only be purchased through the calendar. I would like to be able to access tickets in WooCommerce store as well.

  3. If cart qualtity is updated, force ticket buyer to enter additional info fields

    Currently Event Tickets Plus can collect additional information when adding tickets to their cart. (I.e. First Name Last and Name for each ticket purchased.) However, once the user gets to their cart, they also have the option to change the number of tickets they are purchasing. But if they increase the quantity of tickets in their cart, they are no longer required to enter the additional information fields. It would be great if the cart would display those additional fields when the ticket quantity is changed. Maybe a pop-up window where they could enter the additional names and then close…

  4. Force minimum number of tickets purchased

    Offer a reduced ticket price for buying X or more, and force the quantity of that ticket to start at X.

    We sell reduced price tickets for groups of 3 or more, but the quantity on the product page always starts at 1, which allows anyone to buy only one ticket at the lower price. Currently we have to say, "Contact us for 3 or more" and process these sales manually.

    Eventbrite does this beautifully, but we're trying to get away from the extra fees.

    Thanks!

  5. WooTickets as an in-house box office system as well as online e-ticketing

    Right now all ticket types and prices are published, including free tickets, but as a theater manager, I need to be able to issue comp tickets and reserve seats for events that aren't "published" ticket types. So I need an option when adding a ticket type whether or not to publish it or keep it hidden so that I, as the administrator, can operate the sales of that ticket type only from the back-end box office.

    On the same note, it would also be helpful to have a reserve or consignment feature that will change the overall number of tickets…

  6. Could we get Event tickets to work with WooExtensions for Product add-ons please. We could then add additional items to customise.

  7. users re-print tickets from user login area

    Hi, very simple one...

    I would like users to be able to print tickets from their own admin area. This would ensure that when they don't get the tickets first time (which happens one ever few hundred ticket orders we get) we can just direct them to their account to re-download/re-send and print the tickets instead of coming to us...

    This could be in the form of resend email, download tickets as pdf, whatever. As there is already user functionality for a login area with Woocommerce, and there is already the ability to send emails again from an order int…
