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 support forums. If you use our free core plugin, you can post in our forum on WordPress.org.

I suggest you ...

    • Option to show EXCERPT on Upcoming events widget

      Would be great if in the PRO version, the events list widget could have the option to show the excerpt - a check box just like for the Price, Venue, City, Address, etc. Thanks :)

      • embed events on other websites

        Hey, would it be possible to make the events embeddable on other sites? Like in Eventbrite where you can embed the ticket form, can you add this option?

        • Offer button to copy and paste all registered attendee emails with comma option inbetween

          I have a suggestion for approach to mass-emailing attendees who have already registered for an event. I know that incorporating mass email into the plugin where the server is doing the email for you is a complicated procedure that may or may not work depending on server settings. An easier approach could be when you click on “Attendees” on the specific event where there are options towards the top for “Print”, “Email”, and “Export” you add another button like “Copy Email Addresses” so it brings up a window that you add sorting options to sort for those who are processing,…

            Display events automatically in web visitor's timezone

            Currently, the options allow you to use your WordPress timezone OR local timezones for each event. None of these options will automatically update the date and time of your event based on the user's local timezone.

              • Allow file upload for pdfs

                Currently community events limits file upload to images. An additional pdf upload would be handy.

                  • limit recurring posts

                    I'd like a way to prevent a group from posting the same recurring event every day. To quote another user:
                    <<Along these lines I would like to be able to add other limits. For example, let’s say someone entered a daily recurring event for the entire 12 months. I would consider that an abuse, and I would have to delete 365 events. Having a way to suppress specific instances of recurring events like that so they cannot be entered would be great.>>

                    • Multiple RSVP name inputs fields

                      When someone clicks to 3 RSVPs attending - I want to have them add each individual attendee name. Right now RSVPs are only allowed to enter one name.

                      Also I'm needing to add more text fields to the RSVP form.

                      Also is there a way to modify the excel sheet to export this extra field data?

                      • Add Donations

                        Many events are for a charity and many people actually only want to donate and not attend. Rather than having them buy a ticket and expecting them to show up, allowing a donation would simplify the process

                        • Add a category filter to the PRO calendar, or charge less for the Filter Bar.

                          I just need a simple category filter, nothing as complex as the Filter Bar. $89 is a lot to pay for that. Filter Bar Lite for for categories would be OK for a lower price.

                            • Events List Widget Beaver Builder Compatibility – Categories Filter Not Showing in Widget

                              When I add your events list widget to Beaver Builder layout, the categories i’ve added do not show as filter options. However, when I add the events list widget to a wordpress sidebar, it works.

                              Shortcodes do seem to work and resolve the problem, but they are not an option for a client that is not tech savvy. So I would like to get this resolved if possible.

                              Here is what I see when I add events list widget to a wp footer widget area:

                                    Hi,

                                    I've a request for a feature.
                                    We run a website which uses The Events Calendar. On a content page, we explain what the event is and at the bottom we place a button to the form to subscribe or sign up. But that form has a dropdown of multiple events, so the user has to choose the right event. What we want is, when you click on the button, there will be (from our side) a parameter included in the url like: [url]?event=[eventname], and when the page with the form is reached, the form will try to pickup that…
