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 ...

  1. Bring an Android & iOS app for adding Events directly to website.

    Greetings,
    I am writing this to give you a suggestion to develop an Android and iOS app for your Event Plugin. I am a freelancer an often use this plugin for my clients as I love it. Unfortunately, Many Clients do not want to login to their dashboard to add an event. They often say if there is any way to add events from mobile phone or if they can add an event on Google Calendar, it should be added on Website Events page too on auto. So I face such feedback. Today I thought to give you a suggestion…

    • allow user to save/star events

      Allow users to save, star or favourite events. So they can plan which events they would like to attend. This would be a huge value-add to the end user where there are a lot of events to choose from and they may want to attend a few.

      • Autofill the Event Tickets header image

        Make it possible to add the WooCommerce Product featured image from within the ticket meta-block in the event. I would be perfectly happy with either of three solutions:
        1 reusing the header image
        2 reusing the featured image of the event
        3 selecting a separate image for just this reason.

        But can understand if option 1 might conflict with how the image might be used otherwise and option 2 might conflict with the fact that the ticket is stored basically separate from the event, so perhaps option 3 should be it and will save me a lot of time anyway.…

        • update the body class if the calendar is used as the homepage

          Right now, if the events calendar is set as the homepage, the body class tags do not contain a 'home' identifier. This means themes which rely on that tag to apply formatting only to the main page will not work.

          I'm not 100% sure that's the case, but it seems that wordpress relies on the first body tag being 'home' to detect if it's the homepage or not, and the calendar simply won't add that tag when I set it to the homepage.

          • Implement automatic redirects for events that have passed and been deleted

            We run events across the country and when these events pass they are deleted and return a 404 page when crawled by Google. I suggest you implement an option within the settings for an event to "redirect to this page after deleted" and then a field to input the redirect url.

            • Rebuild a fully-functioning Facebook import by scraping data

              Facebook is still the #1 place for most people to post events. Although the official FB api is still stagnating, there are other solutions that can work just as well (in addition or in place of the current Tribe Extension).

              Possibilities:
              1. Use the .ics feed. Thats what Time.ly and other competitors are doing.
              2. Parse the URL. This method (used by geodirectory: https://wpgeodirectory.com/social-importer-v2-beta-released/) lets you get information thats neither in the .ics or the *old* API.

              • Add option to disable the Attendee Registration page

                The new Attendee Registration page is great for people who are just using TEC, but those who have other ecommerce flows on their website, might want to use the existing one.

                Please create a filter to allow us to disable this feature, and collect attendee data our own way.

                • Add Ability to Limit Submissions to Users with Specific Roles

                  Requested Feature:
                  Build in a security option to restrict access to members of a certain role or roles.

                  Challenge:
                  Currently Community Events has two options to control what site users can submit events for inclusion on the calendar. Allow all registered users to submit events or allow anonymous user submissions.

                  Scenario:
                  Our organization has leadership positions that are voted upon by the membership. These elections are annual and therefore, the positions turn over regularly. For the benefit of these elected users, most of which who know nothing about WordPress, we need a clean and simple to use “form” that allows…

                    An option to export a list of all event attendees in Wordpress to a CSV file, with cells for date, event info, registration info, etc. The list is available as a Wordpress export file, but is downloaded as a WP XML.

                    • filter events by author

                      With the "advanced post manager" it is currently not possible to filter by author, nor is it possible to sort by author. This means there is no good way for me to see all of the events from a particular author and edit them, which is incredibly important to ensure quality.

                      • edit single item in series

                        Hi,

                        • Allow organizers to choose their tax rate

                          It would be great if the Organizer can choose which taxes to apply if any to their event.

                          So as they add a ticket price, they can add the tax rate.

                          The tax rates would be chosen from the tax rate table in Woocommerce.

                          Hope you can make this happen

                          Jo

                          • Ability to hide Image Widget title on page but still have it show on Widget admin page.

                            I have several Image Widgets in my sidebar. If I put a title in, it shows in the sidebar list and makes it easy to figure out which one is which. But then the title also shows on my page and I don't want it there. So if I make the page look the way it should then all my Image Widgets lose their description.

                            • Add true Subscribe Functionality for iCal & Google

                              Downloading an iCal file is NOT THE SAME as a true subscribe to calendar function where users calendars are updated automatically with new events, changes to events and so forth. It's a total disappointment to find out that the other suggestion was closed when it the suggested feature was clearly not implemented. Having a static download is actually worse because users think they've subscribed and never get updates and have no reason to believe that they aren't getting the latest info.

                                We are planning to add this functionality when we have some open development resources to complete it. Thank you all for your patience!

                                This snippet changes the “iCal Export” buttons to be webcal:// links, which suggests to calendar applications that they should subscribe instead of downloading the .ics file.

                                It requires The Events Calendar version 4.6.5 or newer.

                                https://gist.github.com/cliffordp/be034504a2c530495b7d58e704352069

                              • Add additional filter for attendees table to allow searching by custom metadata

                                In the file `/event-tickets/src/Tribe/Attendees_Table.php` on line 805 there is a filter of `tribe_tickets_search_attendees_by` which allows adding additional searchable fields for attendees. If you can add one more additional filter for the `$items` then we would be able to search by any custom meta data that applies to that attendee.

                                Here is an example:

                                New Filter that would go on line 806 (or before the other filter, doesn't really matter)
                                ```
                                $items = apply_filters( 'tribe_tickets_search_attendees', $items, $search );
                                ```

                                Then in my functions.php I have:
                                ```
                                /**
                                * Add ticket ID as searchable
                                */
                                add_filter('tribe_tickets_search_attendees_by', function ($search_keys) {
                                $search_keys[] = 'ticket_id'; …
