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 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

    • Include specific event categories in icalendar import

      Can you look at having the ability to include an event category per event from a icalendar or google calendar automatic import? Maybe a specific keyword in the description of the event or the event title within the source (outlook calendar for example) could trigger which category to assign to that event when importing?

      • 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.

            • Rate commission

              Events Tickets Plus could enable commissioning options such as Sympla and Eventbrite, where you offer the event advertiser the option of passing the rate on to guests or absorbing it.

              • customize shortcode colors

                I used the WP customizer to style the default event page, but those settings don’t carry over when using shortcodes on other website pages. Without being able to set the style (primarily the bg colors for tables, title colors, cal info text etc) for the various calendar instances when using shortcodes, I'm unable to use them at all since they don't match the branding of my client site (currently using Avada theme) and are thus difficult to read by default. The purpose of me using a premium plug-in like this is to avoid having to customize theme files and stylesheets,…

                • Allow x Number of Upcoming Recurring Events to Display

                  It would be great to be able to show more than just only one upcoming event in a recurring series. Ideally this would be per recurring event series so you could customize it different for different recurring events. This would be helpful in situations where one recurring event dominates the calendar for the next few weeks, but you still want to be able to show more than just one.

                  • Advanced Post Manager: Add "Event Time" column

                    We typically have 6 or more events in a day between two venues. We'd like to be able to view and sort by date and time.

                    • 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 more frequency options to Event Aggregator automatic imports

                          Right now, the automatic import frequency options in Event Aggregator go from hourly to daily with no options in between. Those are hugely different for how up to date the calendar would be. I'd like either a few options in between (ie every two hours, every three hours, every six hours) or the ability to manually choose the frequency.

                            Would be great to show the past events on this shortcode.
                            As well show if the user attended (or checked in) to the event.
                            We would like to use the plugin to sell rides to a rollercoaster and setup the system having a "single ride" event all year. A user can buy multible tickets for this "one" event. It would be great if the user could see "used" tickets to better identify which tickets are still free to use (and can be printed). Using this in combination with the QR Code would be very powerfull solution. We then would setup…

                              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.

                                  • 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.

                                      A major frustration when using Photo View is that if an event is slightly larger than the others it can throw out how the events are displayed on the page and rather than having dates in order, left to right across the page, they display out of order so that some rows are from left to right and other rows are from right to left. This is my favourite view but is counter intuitive for visitors to the site who expect their to be a natural order for viewing the events.

                                        In addition to being able to define a "ticket template" as described in another feature idea (https://tribe.uservoice.com/forums/195723-feature-ideas/suggestions/3825421-reusable-ticket-defaults-profiles-as-per-venues-a), I would suggest that this same functionality be extended to events themselves as well as tickets.

                                        We currently use the Advanced Content Templates plugin (https://www.advancedcontenttemplates.com) for this purpose but it is limited. For example, Advanced Content Templates can't:

                                        - insert the event category/categories
                                        - insert the event tag(s)
                                        - insert pre-defined a ticket(s)

                                        Having a templating system for events and tickets would be a real time-saver for those who hold the same or similar events multiple times.

                                        Thanks!

                                        • Allow direct access to WooCommerce Product meta

                                          In the ticket definition section, allow direct access to set some of the WooCommerce Product metadata.

                                          For example, we use the product category to set discounts via WooCommerce Memberships. However, we are forced to go into the WooCommerce product (ticket) that is auto-defined and set the product category as needed. It would be much easier to do this from within the ticket definition section of the event itself.

                                          Thanks!
