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. Conditional tag that returns true for any view related to Tribe's event plugins

    There are several conditional tags that check if certain views are being displayed like "tribe_is_month()", "tribe_is_day()", "tribe_is_map()", "tribe_is_event()", "tribe_is_venue()" etc.

    But if you need to check if _any_ of the event related views are displayed, you need to combine many of this checks in one huge functions.

    There are several examples available online that try to solve this (http://pastebin.com/c4yujaZC, https://gist.github.com/jo-snips/2415009, https://clicknathan.com/web-design/tribe-events-calendar-conditional-tag/ etc.) but they are incomplete (not covering all views) and "cumbersome" to use because every "tribe_is_..." functions should be wrapped with `function_exists()`.

    I believe a function that returns true for _all_ event related views should be…

    • Resize pictures automatically and speed up pages

      The events calendar has options to show events in widgets and in the calendar. There it always uses the standard wordpress pictures and does not resize them. This is a problem for users, as they have to load a lot of data. It also reduces the page rank at Google.
      Therefore I want the plugin to resize the images automatically to save data and rank better in Google.

      • 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.

        • Import from Active.com and RunSignUp.com - both have APIs

          Would be great to pull from both of these sites. They have APIs for this and affiliate programs. Displaying events from these sites could be a revenue generator.

          • 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…

            • Enable Additional Fields support in Other URL imports

              I believe that the use case is a valuable one. We have a group event calendar whereby having Additional Fields import capability could be utilized to easily customize various event listings coming in from various "Other URL" scheduled imports from participating organizations. Everyone would use the same set of Additional Fields to specify information about their event. We would then use these field values as variables for controlling the ultimate display of the event item at runtime.

              • Extend date range in event aggregator to allow more than the next 3 months to be imported

                I have imports to make from calendars which are only seasonal, e.g. some special events in september only. Unfortunately I cannot aggregate them because i can only go 3 months into the future.

                More options would be appreciated here, at least 12 months (or even unlimited if possible and of course on your own risk). I hacked it in now myself but that's not the best solution obviously.

                And would the amount limit not still be in place?

                (and for the record, I am using the custom url to import from other tribe event calendars)

                • 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.

                  • Make Filter Bar compatible with shortcoded calendars

                    Would be nice to add the filter bar feature to every page with a calendar via shortcode, not only in the event page.

                    Then it would allow you to make filtered calendars on pages, and let to the user play with the other fields to check information.

                    • 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.

                        Would like to include the "Powered by Events Calendar Pro" link on my client's calendars (to share the love and tell the world how awesome the plugin is) however, the link needs to open in a new tab rather than replace my clients calendar page. A simple mark-up is all that is needed.

                          Need a way to reset the 'Deleted Attendees' count on the Attendees list. After we delete all Orders, all Attendees, and reset the Products total_sales to 0, it is still showing the prior 'Deleted Attendees' count. We have yearly recurring events, so we re-use the same events each year. Copying the event to a new one doesn't help, it still retains that count as soon as you place an order on the new event.

                            • Merge locations

                              OMG I love Event Aggregator. But now that it's importing from third party calendars (Facebook and Google Calendars etc) the locations section is a mess of duplicate locations. I don't know the correct terminology, but could there be a system which allows locations to be merged, and it learns the terminology (so it knows that "the flying nun" and "flying nun" are the same location). Thanks!!!

                              • 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.

                                    The free CSV importer should be able to import from any publicly-accessible URL instead of having to first upload to WordPress.

                                    Additional functionality (worth paying for in the sense that it could be only available with an Event Aggregator license) I'd like to see is the ability to set intervals for scheduling re-importing from a CSV URL.

                                    One-time and scheduled CSVs via URL would be useful for getting data from other sites that aren't running The Events Calendar (which Event Aggregator can already handle) and for situations where a third party is providing the data to us, sometimes on regular…

                                      • Woocommerce: Sales by Event Category Report

                                        Hi there,

                                        I would like to be able to see a report within Woocommerce: Sales by Event Category.

                                        At the moment this is a feature within the Events Calendar for Event Categories, but there is no way to measure the sales of a specific category. Therefore if we invest Google marketing into a specific event category there is no easy evaluation of sales.

                                        At the moment you can search by specific event, but we have 100s of events.

                                        Cheers.

                                          Would be great to have the ability to change the slugs/endpoints for the pages generated by the Community Events Plugin.
                                          Even simply adding a filter to the multiple `$router->add_route` lines and the `communityRewriteSlug()` in Tribe\Main.php would go a long way to helping devs better integrate Community Events into their sites.

                                          The most obvious use case is for sites building a User Panel: the ability to move the user's events list to my-account/events, (/add, etc), but any site that has multiple user actions that need to be managed (WooCommerce, BuddyPress/BBPress, the myriad of Directory, Classified, Buy Ads, subscription management, etc) would…
