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.

  1. 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.

    • Locations Calendar, bookings functionality

      Bookings Plugin or Feature
      It would be great to have a bookings feature for locations, based on hourly/daily/weekly time slots showing availability etc

      A great extension taking events bookings to the venue hires!

      For example, this might be a great feature for: vacation rentals, halls, tours, hair dressers, masseuses, yoga studios, workshops, classes, and doctor's offices any many more

      • CSV import permalink

        Add a new field to the CSV import so we can specify the permalink in the CSV file.

        • Supply an export to CSV functionality which would include event data as well as venue data.

          We mainly would use this to take the event data and export it to be included in a print product. Currently, we can export the event and then export the venues through a third party plugin, but that, obviously, creates a manual headache of matching the venue data with the venueID on the event export.

          • Add Open Link in New Tab option for Event Website url field (really need this for any url)

            The Event Website field, if populated, will direct the browser away from the wordpress website when a user clicks on the link. I think there should be an option similar to the option that exists when editing an inserted media link URL that specifies to Open Link in a New Tab. This way we can specify an Event Website for the reader to browse in a new tab, without our readers loosing their place on our wordpress site.

              • Hide event/ticket url for non logged in users

                • Different view for calendar view, images, name

                  Hi.
                  Today I have month or week calendar view, which displays only title.
                  But when my events started for the same word with the same day, I have 2-3 boxes with the same text (without filters).
                  i want to suggest to have in this views (month and week) option what I can see. For example, for month view - images, for week - images and title (name, description)

                  • Attendee sorting and Email information

                    I have been using the Events Tickets Plus for 3 weeks now and really like it. However, there are a couple of things that would make using the software better. I would really like the ability to be able to sort the attendee view information so it can show the newest ticket purchases first in the list, instead of having to go to page 3 of 4, 4 of 4, etc. Also, it would be great to have any custom filed information that is collected from the ticket to be shown on the notification email the administrator gets, as well…

                    • make RSVP count toward shared capacity

                      Is there a reason that RSVPs do not count against shared capacity? It would be really great if they did. I often use multiple RSVP types, and would ideally like to set a shared capacity equal to the capacity of the venue, then allow the quantity available per RSVP type to adjust based on that shared capacity.

                      Thanks!

                      • Add 'Series starts on' field for recurring Event Series

                        Irregular recurring events cannot be added (easily) using the current Event Series tabs (Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly, Once).

                        For example, my events may occur every weekend and also every day during each school holiday period. Using the current Event Series tabs, I cannot programme this without an additional feature…

                        How about for each Event Series rule, adding a 'Series starts on' feature to match the existing 'Series ends on' field? This would allow one rule to manage the infinitely weekend series, then another rule to manage irregular sessions such as the school holiday period.

                        E.g.
                        Rule 1: Event Series >…

                        • Allow events with same title and time in different venues

                          Consider the following CSV, where two distinct events with identical titles and times happen at two venues simultaneously:

                          https://gist.github.com/stevygee/6d657e3585af3a0f4ef6edfed7a2359a

                          I was expecting the importer two add two events from these two records. However, since it only compares title and date, it wrongly assumes these are identical. The importer adds an event from the first record, then updates it with data from the second record.

                          The fix would be quite easy, either:
                          https://gist.github.com/stevygee/51f9822aa873414baa1b137188ceef6f

                          Otherwise, please allow us to filter $query_args in File_Importer_Events.php line 59 so developers can tweak how events are matched.

                            Often there are items tied into an event Organizer would like to sell at the time of purchasing tickets (event t-shirts, caps, journal Ads). As confirmed with support there is no way to show these add-one on the events page. Suggest a feature where an organizer could add existing WooCommerce products to be sold with tickets. Note that for simplicity these would be products to be picked up at event (no need to go through the shipping dialogue).

                              • Time Slot / Appointment plugin

                                Adding the ability to add start and end time to an event is already possible. Maybe add the ability to split the one event in several timeslots within the setup of the event. Give just X spots to be booked per slot and that will give the option to sell for example tents, barbeque spots etc.
                                For the start that would be great!!
                                I know you declined this previously but maybe you could reconsider.

                                    Our organization would like an easy way to compile event statistics for a specific time period (calendar year, for example). TEC doesn't include any such reporting functionality and I'm not aware of any 3rd party solutions to this other than using an SQL tool.

                                    Data that we would be interested in includes:

                                    * number of events in the time period
                                    * number of tickets sold in the time period
                                    * total revenue for the time period

                                    Thanks!

                                    • 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 register/pay for a session or group of classes

                                        I am trying to sell tickets to a preschool program. It is every other Tuesday and $35 for 8 classes that make up one session. I would like for my clients to pay once for the whole session.

                                        It is not necessarily a recurring event, although I purchased Events Calendar Pro thinking this would be my solution- it wasn't.

                                        • embedded map in list / multiple maps function

                                          My idea is to have a function that would allow for embedding a google map in the individual events within the list of events.

                                          This would also enable adding it to a modal or pop-up if there's not room to show it there for a quick view of the location without leaving the list.

                                          I managed to get so far trying this myself using the tribe_get_embedded_map(); and map templates and added it to a bootstrap modal button. But my issue was this function does not allow for multiple maps per page.

                                          Please vote for this idea! Thanks!
