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. LearnDash Integration

    Event Espresso integrates with LearnDash such that event attendees can be added to LD courses or groups. I would love to see a similar integration.

    • Connect (sync) with Microsoft Exchange

      We need a calendar plugin that will be able to connect to an exchange calendar.

      This plugin has most of the features we need in a WP calendar system minus the connection with Exchange.

      We are going to be building a 120+ multisite environment and each of those sites need to have a calendar connected to their own calendar within exchange.

      See my other suggestion for a different approach.

      • Google Calendar Sync using Calendar ID + API

        I'd like TEC and Google Calendar to be 1 and the same, only that TEC is responsive on our site. The administration is already used to updating google calendar. TEC would be perfect if it had this. I've found a plugin that does what I'm talking about https://wordpress.org/plugins/google-calendar-events/ but it's honestly not as flushed out as TEC(especially in terms of responsiveness). It uses the calendar ID and calendar api key. I think you guys could do what they've done better. It would be awesome if this came out as a feature. Thanks!

          That’s a great idea! Thanks for the specificity. This is something we have talked about some, and are keen to see how many folks are interested in it. We really appreciate your posting the idea here.

          You might also want to check out our Event Aggregator service (https://theeventscalendar.com/product/event-aggregator/) and see if that would meet your needs. It allows you to import events from Google Calendar into The Events Calendar and even has automatic imports so you can keep things up to date.

          Cheers!

          • Integrate with Google My Business posts/events

            Google has implemented the post and event "post-type" for GMB. Can you or are you planning to integrate that feature through google's API ?

            That would be an AWESOME feature, saving much time (i.e. writing GBM post inside the wordpress event editor).
            Fields are basic for now so shouldn't be too hard (title+descr+CTA-link+date)

            I've found this as reference, but its very basic and quite expensive: https://wordpress.org/plugins/post-to-google-my-business/

            Hope this could help as feedback/suggestion

              • Add Plugin URI in all the plugins headers

                Original Posting - https://theeventscalendar.com/support/forums/topic/plugins-are-missing-plugin-uri-in-the-plugin-header/#post-1360233

                I just wanted to flag that you guys haven’t provided a Plugin URI in your plugins so when they appear in system reports (Gravity Forms, WooCommerce, etc.) and other places they aren’t linked to your website.
                Fairly minor but might be a good idea.

                • Beaver Builder Compatibility - Full Integration So Everything Works

                  Beaver Builder's Page Builder is hugely popular with over 275K downloads. Right now the widget don't work completely in the page builder. Some functionality is missing and there are bugs.

                  It would be grand of there could be a concerted effort to make sure Event Calendar is fully compatible with Beaver Builder.

                  • Divi Integration

                    Divi is currently one of the best-selling Wordpress themes. It integrates smoothly with WooCommerce but currently doesn't integrate well with The Events Calendar.

                      Hello all,

                      Thank you for pitching in.
                      We have many of our customers and team members using the Events Calendar alongside Divi with great results.

                      As long as the proper template is used in Events → Settings → Display , things work great.

                      Furthermore, our upcoming 4.3 version of Events Calendar Pro will include full calendar shortcodes that will allow customers to include the full calendar to the page of their choice.

                      Please let us know if there are still additional integration needs

                    • Integrate with Ticket Tailor

                      Add a plugin for Ticket Tailor - https://www.tickettailor.com/ - as an alternative to Eventbrite and other ticketing solutions. They have a WordPress plugin for event ticketing and don't charge any per ticket fees like the other companies do.

                        This plugin is already 95% working correctly with The Events Calendar.

                        There are only 2 things that ignore the language addition in the URL:

                        1. the "All Events" link in breadcrumb above Event Detail page
                        2. the "View all events" link at bottom of widget

                            • Compatiblity with Page Widgets and similar plugins

                              At the moment if you add an event calendar widget to a widget area from the post itself, using a plugin such as Page Widgets (http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-page-widget/), the category selector doesn't work, because, not expecting to be loaded on the post edit screen, it doesn't load all its scripts.

                              This can be fixed if you want to make your plugin compatible, by modifying line 18 of /events-calendar-pro/lib/widget-calendar.class.php from

                              if ( $hook != ‘widgets.php’ )

                              to

                              if ( $hook != ‘widgets.php’ && $hook != ‘post.php’ )

                              Now everything works. I realise that if you were to implement this you’d want…
