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.

    Add a new field to the CSV import so we can specify the permalink in the CSV file.

    • have shared capacity available for csv import

      When importing events and tickets. They should really have the option shared capacity available. As this is not available you have to do this manually or by manipulating the database.

      • Ability to perform a CSV import from any URL

        The free CSV importer should be able to import from any publicly-accessible URL instead of having to first upload to WordPress.

        Additional functionality (worth paying for in the sense that it could be only available with an Event Aggregator license) I'd like to see is the ability to set intervals for scheduling re-importing from a CSV URL.

        One-time and scheduled CSVs via URL would be useful for getting data from other sites that aren't running The Events Calendar (which Event Aggregator can already handle) and for situations where a third party is providing the data to us, sometimes on regular…

          Here’s a tip that might come in handy while this functionality does not exist natively:

          We’ve heard of some users having success with WP All Import (or similar plugins). These links may be helpful if you want to try going this route:
          - http://www.wpallimport.com/tour/scheduled-imports/
          - http://www.wpallimport.com/documentation/custom-fields/theme-plugin-fields/

          Please do add your votes and comments if interested in this idea so we can gauge the community’s interest in such functionality.

        • Add a recurring event option to CSV uploads

          Add a recurring event option to CSV uploads so that you can add recurring events as currently to have to add the event multiple times.

            This is something we are currently investivating to see how feasible it is. We would love to add this ability, but due to the complexity of recurrence patterns it may not be possible to import these via CSV, at least without making it so complex it has a huge learning curve and is a pain to work with. If we deem this possible then we would definitely like to build it. :)

            Thanks for sharing the idea!

            Cheers!
