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.

    • Parent / child events

      We run training courses for professional development in five day blocks.

      People can, and often do, attend the full five-day block but others will want to attend individual day(s) within the block. It would be useful to have the five-day block as the parent event with each day as an individual child event.

      As it stands I have to create five separate courses to monitor attendance for each course (annoying for people that want to book all five days as they have to go into each separate event to book a ticket) or create a five-day event with separate ticket…

      • Contact all attendees

        It would be a very useful to be able to contact all attendees with a personalised email.

        For example, if there were a change of location, just view the attendee list and email them all to say:

        "Hi [First Name],

        Just to let you know there has been a change of location..."

        If there's already a way to do this I haven't been able to find it!

        • Add organizer to the Day View

          On the Day view, the event organizer doesn't appear, it would be very helpful to display it.

          • Need a reliable way to hide remaining tickets.

            We do not want to display the remaining tickets in our events or on our calendar. The suggested CSS snippets do not work. Help!

              • add capability to change accent colour assignment

                At the moment, the theme picks up the accent colour from the global theme, which looks AWFUL on my site. But it won't let me choose one of the other accents. Its driving me crazy.

                • Show how many tickets are left on the spot, if pre-sale is over.

                  In our events pre-sale is finishing 2 hours before event.
                  If there are 20 tickets left, which were not sold, it would be great, if there is way to show how many tickets people can buy at the venue/on the spot.

                  • 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

                        It would be great if Facebook Dev were able to import an address in the event too. Now only the name is imported

                          • Allow to import all future events with the "other" option

                            At the moment you can just import up to three months ahead. It should be possible to opt for at least a year and all future events.
                            Specially for touring artists the planning is a long time in advance and the fans (and other pages) should be able to find that.

                            • Add a test qrcode that can be used to test Event Tickets Plus app

                              It would be extremely useful to have a test qrcode which can be used to test the event tickets plus app.
                              As well, it would be helpful to have a log of scans.
                              And the message for a completed scan should read "Ticket Checked In"
                              In fact, there is no reason why this message couldn't be customised.

                              • Add latitude and longitude to venue info during event creation

                                We can already add venue info when creating an event, but then we have to open a new tab and find the newly added venue to add latitude and longitude info. Why can't we just add that while we're entering the other venue info within the event editor?

                                • please improve german Translation in some spots

                                  im am just looking at the german translation for now:
                                  on the main page of your events there is a dropdown menu which can be used to filter events for a special month or filter them by a word.
                                  the translation in the dropdown menu is not complete.
                                  It says
                                  1. "Show Veranstaltungen Search"
                                  it should be (correct german would be):
                                  "Veranstaltungen durchsuchen"
                                  2. "Hide Veranstaltungen Search"
                                  it should be (correct german would be):
                                  "Suche ausblenden"

                                  I was not able to edit it with help of this article:
                                  https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/change-the-wording-of-any-bit-of-text-or-string/
                                  Help would be highly appreciated.
                                  Kind regards

                                    I ended up having to unsubscribe and take out a new subscription just to use the coupon code and pay 5 days early!

                                    • Add Community Ticketing Pricing Info within Community Events

                                      With both Community Tickets and Community events enabled, site visitors submitting an event will have the option to create tickets but will not see what our fees are within the community form. People may think we are offering this for free.

                                      • Stop deactivating EC Pro when it is updated

                                        Did you know that every time I install an update to The Events calendar PRO, it deactivates and I have to remember to re-activate it? I haven't met any other plugin that mis-behaves like this!

                                        • Use discount / promo code to enable certain tickets

                                          There are situations where we want to issue special tickets to certain guests (e.g. family member of organising committee, specially invited guests). But we don't want this ticket to be visible to the general public. The solution is to give them a promo code. If the enter the promo code, the special ticket will be visible to checkout.
