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. 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.…

  2. Expand bulk print/export attendee actions & check-in functionalities beyond open "edit_others_posts" capability

    Bulk print/export attendee actions and check-in functionalities are for "edit_others_posts" capability which makes it too open when creating a custom editor-like role that should only be allowed to access their own content. The bulk attendee actions and check-in are also provided for community ticket event organizers so why can't the same access be given to subscriber-like roles in Events Tickets Plus?

  3. 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.

  4. Application of discount codes to specific groups of tickets.

    As an example - the ability to apply a family discount. Define what ticket types and quantity are required to validate the discount. If that discount could be applied automatically that would be even better.

    It means that rather than having to add 'Family' ticket which can only be deducted from stock levels manually, individual tickets will be counted automatically.

  5. Ticket upsells / custom additional charges

    It would be good to be able to have the special information you can add to each ticket monetised. So for instance we sell tickets in a brewery for a special steak night. We would like to be able to have the option on the same ticket to select with drinks or without drinks but the option for with drinks to add £5 on to the ticket price. This way we can sell a smaller array of tickets, which helps out capacity management, but with options that are either non monetised or that can be used as upgrades to that…

  6. Add additional filter for 'tickets/email.php' email

    In the file `/src/Tribe/Meta/Render.php` add an additional filter the meta data to be transformed before the email is sent.
    ```
    $meta_data = apply_filters( 'tribe_event_tickets_plus_email_meta_data', $meta_data, $item );
    ```

    Why?
    I have a meta field that stores the user's ID instead of their name so I can use that throughout the application to grab additional information related to the user. So when the email goes out it only shows their user id instead of showing the name of the user.
    Adding this filter will allow me to transform that id into whatever content I would like.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. edit single item in series

    Hi,

    Add a way to edit a single item in a recurring event, so that you can edit one date instead of changing all of them

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

    Please reference https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/implementing-custom-code-snippets/ for how to implement custom code snippets and let us know how this works for you.

  14. 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'; …

  15. multiple eventbrite providers

    Need a way to import MULTIPLE eventBrite events. Right now it appears as though I can only import ONE eventbrite id. This doesn't work for me.

  16. Implement "admin-like" sorting functionality to "My Events" list (sort by column header)

    The list of user submitted events (example.com/events/community/list) is currently sorted in descending order, meaning events starting in two weeks are listed first, events starting in one week listed below.
    This is because this view is considered as an admin-like page (as I can administer my submitted events here), and in the admin it is in descending order by default.

    But if this view is considered as an admin-like page, then it should have "admin-like" features. One would be to change order by clicking a column header, as it's possible in the backend ("Status", "Title", "Organizer", "Venue", ... and, especially, "Start…
