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. Add subevents with stock management option

    An event could have subevents, like a 2-3 days conference (300 participants) could have general sessions with all the participants and smaller sessions at same time for smaller groups. (6 sessions for 50 people)

    • Sort events in API

      The sorting is lost if there any filtering params for /events API endpoint. Ex: https://wpshindig.com/wp-json/tribe/events/v1/events?start_date=2018-01-01+00:00:00 it starts with the events in Jan, even if there are events for Jun/Jul

      Here's a example which the API doesn’t support now:
      – show events between May 1, 2018 – May 31, 2018 sorted from newest to oldest. A parameters like order=desc would fix this

      There are more details in this thread https://wordpress.org/support/topic/sort-events-in-api

      • Additional Fields Should Support Date Fields

        I would LOVE IT if additional fields supported dates and date ranges, and the filter bar would search in a date rage.

        For instance, our events have a registration open and close date, but we're not responsible for ticketing. To allow our users to see what events have opened recently would be huge. :)

        • Make enabling/disabling QR codes event specific.

          I love the ability to turn it on and off for the whole site but in my case it would be nice have the option to use it for some of our events turn it off for others.
          Thank you!

          • Eventbrite - Filter Tickets

            I have a single event with a large number of tickets for different categories, (lets say Music/Art/Education etc).

            On my website, I would like to advertise the relevent tickets on each page as theres currently no way to filter out the tickets.

            This would be a really handy feature.

            • Featured Image for Calendar Share

              Featured Image for Calendar Share

              If you want to share your calendar on Social Media (like LinkedIn or Facebook) those sites will automatically pick up an image to display whether you like it or not.

              At the moment there is no way to control that image in the Calendar settings. By default Facebook or Linkedin will just pick up the first available image from your website which in most cases, will have nothing to do with your Events Calendar.

              All Tribe need to do is add the option in settings to upload an image you want to display when you…

              • 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…

                • Add option to reorder zip and city for certain countries

                  In quite a few european countries, the usual (and also "correct" in terms of what postal services expect on an envelope) way to write addresses is like this:

                  Venue Name
                  Street 23
                  12345 City
                  Country

                  While the notation of street and number ("123, Park Avenue" vs. "Hauptstraße 17") isn’t an issue (since it’s only one field in the database), addresses like "Berlin, 12345 Deutschland" (instead of the correct "12345 Berlin, Deutschland" are quite disturbing.

                  I am aware that src/views/modules/address.php could be customized by the user, but I would strongly suggest to add an option to reorder zip and city. This…

                  • GDPR: Include ticket field data in WP personal data export

                    With GDPR taking effect tomorrow, we need a way to include provided data from ticket fields in the WordPress core personal data export.

                    • 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 "Ticket Fieldset" to CSV import for tickets.

                        My client offers after-school events per quarter for dozens of schools. Every event has a required ticket fieldset (child's name, age, medications and allergies, etc.)

                        I've got CSV imports working for events. And even though importing corresponding tickets is a little clumsy since you have to somehow match event titles or IDs I've got that working as well.

                        It's a big pain having to go in after and manually add Ticket Fieldsets to every imported event.

                        Since saved Ticket Fieldsets are already named please add a CSV import column for those as well.

                        • Add text that the user would see prior to Start Sale date

                          Add one text field to the ticket area that would incorporate the "Start Sale" field to display a message to the visitor if they view the event before that date.

                          As it is now, the visitor reads about the event, sees all the When and Where details... and then wonders what they're missing and why they can't purchase/sign up. All they need is a message: "Registration will begin on %StartSale% -- please check back!"

                          • Ticket sales via Stripe without Woo

                            The recently released Event Tickets with Paypal is great, but purchasers still have to leave your web site and go out to Paypal. It would be great if this solution also included Stripe, which allows you to have the credit card form on the order page.

                            • Update the Countdown SHORTCODE to include next event functionality

                              The Events Calendar is a great plugin and very useful for a lot of situations. My one major suggestion so far is as follows:

                              It would be very helpful to add the "countdown to next event" functionality to the Countdown shortcode. The widget doesn't always fit into a sites design and having to update the current shortcode every time an event passes is quite cumbersome.

                              The shortcode can be styled using css to greater effect in some cases.

                              There was a functions.php code addition that someone added in the support forums for this in 2016 but it tends to break…

                                We have the ability to choose lots of different data to display or hide... all except image. I really want to show my next three events with images and details below instead of the clunky calendar graphic with the date. it just doesn't look good.

                                  We have a client that does not like that users are able to upload images as it is crowding their media folder and server overall.

                                  Is there an option to remove the image upload option, either currently or scheduled for a future maintenance release?

                                  • Add link to event in cart page and checkout page like did it in order detail view

                                    When you add ticket to cart and go to cart to checkout, you just see static text of ticket, without link to event, and can't go back to check what you put into cart ;)
                                    The same case when you press proceed to checkout and get on checkout page.
                                    Only when you complete order, in your order list you can see text of ticket and link to event

                                    • Option for "all day" events placement in one day page

                                      Please add an option to put "All day" event at top or bottom in One Day page.

                                      There are events that starts at a specified hour, but actually they are always put after "One day" events

                                      • Shortcode to display all Event Categories used

                                        I would love to see a shortcode that scrobbles all event categories used (with filter parameters built in, of course) in much the same way that Wordpress can scrobble all post categories by default in a sidebar widget. Also, some kind of automated Javascript that gives you the option (maybe in the settings or back-end) to specify which pages you'd like to display the event category widget on (i.e. all event-related pages, everything under /event and /events) would be awesome.

                                        I could definitely see the utility of this feature in other applications besides just a sidebar event categories widget, but…

                                        • Extend the REST API endpoint /events to filter events by categories

                                          The Swagger documation of the events calender REST API mentions the parameter categories. But if this parameter is set in requests the API repsonds with HTTP ERROR 400.
                                          I suggest to extend the API to correspond with the swagger documentation.
