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.

I suggest you ...

    • Remove / Trash Cancelled Facebook Events

      When a Facebook Event has been cancelled that was imported via Event Aggregator scheduled import the associated Events Calendar event should be trashed, deleted or tagged based on a user preference. Deleted Facebook events should not be retained by Events Calendar.

      • multiple days with time in between

        One event can consist of multiple days spread over multiple weeks. For example: a training which spans 2 days this week AND 2 days next week. These are 4 days spread over 2 weeks but it is ONE event! Please make this possible. thanks!

        • Allow different images for recurring events

          It would be great if recurring events could have different images set for them, for example being able to set a different image for a different date range to create some variety. Or to allow for a slider or rotating set of images to create variety. We have some ongoing classes that occur several times a week and when they all have the same image and there aren't other events to break up the look it starts to get a little ridiculous looking in the list view. I realize for event recognition this may not be optimal for some recurring…

          • Advanced Post Manager: Add "Event Time" column

            We typically have 6 or more events in a day between two venues. We'd like to be able to view and sort by date and time.

              • Bulk Pausing of Scheduled Imports

                Could you please add a "Pause sheduled import" option in the Bulk Actions dropdown menu in the Schedule Imports section? I have hundreds of FaceBook imports that I do not want to delete (the only current option), but just want to pause the schedule imports, while still allowing my Google Calendar and iCal imports to run.

                  • 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

                    • Upsell on Community Events

                      I would like to be able to offer our readers an upsell. Free calendar events, but if you'd like your event promoted click here to pay. We would like to be able to set this up with different options (IE - make your event featured, purchase a print ad in our magazine, etc...).

                      Once they've paid, Then they event is automatically made a featured event and we get an email so we can follow up.

                      Maybe also have the ability for thew event to be tweeted or posted on our Facebook page after they pay.

                      • Have the Option to Set a Custom Import Interval from 0.1 to 1000 Hours in Event Aggregator

                        I see a lot of suggestions for new periods between imports. "2 Hours", "4 Hours", "4 Days".

                        Instead of trying to figure out just which new periods would be most valuable, I suggest we add 1 new option:

                        Custom Import Interval (0.1 to 1000 Hours) _____

                        The field would have a text entry box that would accept values from 0.1 to 1000.

                        This would allow refreshes as frequently as every 6 minutes (0.1 hours) up to as long as 41.67 days.

                        It would allow complete control over how often to perform each refresh.

                        • QR Code Easy Checkin Page : GREEN / RED

                          Make an easy Page with not many (none) personal data shown for QR Code checkin ... just a FULL SCREEN green or red light (background color) so it is easy to checkin ... meaning allow entrance or deny. Normally at a venues door you don't have your office staff and a computer - you just want to use an App and see on first look GREEN (let the person in) or RED (deny entrance, maybe with reason given "already checked in" oder "ticket order not complete") ... that would make it possible to have some guys doing door without explain…

                              Would be really great to not lock someone out of their account for 20 minutes because of too many failed login attempts, especially after utilizing the changed password feature, which is a verification of user identity in and of itself. Let's get with the times, here.

                                Currently only events between now and three months can be imported. As i don't have that many events to import, i'd like to see an option to import events 6 and 12 months ahead.

Most users will have their mobile with them and can open the ticket with the QR code from their account page on the day of the event.

                                      Would be great to show the past events on this shortcode.
                                      As well show if the user attended (or checked in) to the event.
                                      We would like to use the plugin to sell rides to a rollercoaster and setup the system having a "single ride" event all year. A user can buy multible tickets for this "one" event. It would be great if the user could see "used" tickets to better identify which tickets are still free to use (and can be printed). Using this in combination with the QR Code would be very powerfull solution. We then would setup…

                                      • Increase PDF Tickets security

                                        Better protect the pdfs on the server by adding a feature only the registered user who purchased the ticket can access it.

                                        Or add an option to auto delete the ticket from the server as it would be automaticly regenerated "on the fly"
                                        "Security through obscurity" is an issue but the feature is a must!

                                          When a new import has been made and the event is set to "waiting for approval" an e-mail is sent to one or more (pre defined by admin) addresses with a message saying "you have new events to approve".
