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. Have both Purchase Fields and Ticket fields

    Allow for a set of fields for the collection of tickets purchase, as well as a set of fields for each ticket. Especially helpful for business or parent information when bulk purchase of tickets is made for multiple employees or children.

      Howdy Josef,

      This is an intriguing idea. Could you clarify a few things so that we can know exactly what you want?

      Are you using RSVPs, Tickets, or both?

      With purchasable Tickets you can add multiple tickets at once to the cart. A user can then continue shopping, adding more tickets from different events to their cart, all before checking out.

      With the above in mind, are you trying to collect information solely about the purchaser, even if that purchaser is purchasing tickets for multiple events at once? If so, this is already possible. When someone checks out they have to fill in a few fields about themselves, and through third party addons like this one it is possible to customize what fields they must fill out.

      Cheers!

    • “Events List” widget to filter the events according to types of courses

      There is no way for the “Events List” widget to filter the events and displays them according to types of courses. If you create a few different courses and you would like to display upcoming events, the “Events List” widget is displaying all events, even from other courses.

      • Multiple session events

        I have a client looking for multiple session events. Example: an event may have four sessions at 9am an attendee can choose from. Each session has a limit on attendees. At 10am another group of sessions are available. All part of the same event with one ticket purchase. But then the attendees would register for the sessions they want to attend. Anything like this yet?

        • Add user name option to the "Attendees List" displayed on an event page.

          The attendees list currently shows an avatar only. I would love to be able to display first name and last name and/or the avatar.

          This idea has been requested in several support forum posts and in some comments on other ideas posted here.
