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 support forums. If you use our free core plugin, you can post in our forum on WordPress.org.

  1. Sub-Events, Child Events, Sessions Events

    Add support for parent/child relationship between individual events.

    Two potential use cases found in the support forums.

    Case 1:

    Create events with individual sessions. The parent event might be a conference or an all-day meeting, and the child events would be individual sessions within that parent event.

    This would allow users to RSVP to the parent event and individual event sessions.

    Case 2:

    Create events with individual sub-events. The parent event might be an international seminar and the sub-events would be national level seminars. Those may have sub-events at the local or state level.

    This would allow users to identify…

    • You will limit the use of credit cards.

        • Send e-mail to a predefined address when an imported event is imported and waiting for approval

          When a new import has been made and the event is set to "waiting for approval" an e-mail is sent to one or more (pre defined by admin) addresses with a message saying "you have new events to approve".

          • Status in admin meny and in top menu when imported events are waiting for approval

            It would be great if you could have a marking with the number of imported events that are in cue for approval, both in the top menu and also in the left menu (like the function for comments).

            • Allow a user to see and confirm (or change) fields when importing

              Event Aggregator creates many duplicate entries when importing events from Facebook. This is because a person on Facebook enters the venue and organizer name as they see fit. This means lot of double work after importing.

              It would save lot of time if the fields could be displayed and confirmed upon importing.

              • Make the calendar export feature able to be used on a single event

                It looks as though the export feature is for all events, not single events. Users will never want to export all events onto their calendar, they're likely interested in a single event and want to export that.

                Is there currently the ability to export a single event? It doesn't look like it based on this article below:

                  • Register multiple attendees in one purchase under separate names & email

                    When someone clicks to 3 RSVPs attending - I want to have them add each individual attendee name. Right now RSVPs are only allowed to enter one name.

                      • +Export Events button on category page to export category events only

                        At the moment, the +Export Events button on a category page adds every single event (on the whole calendar) to your diary (which is a disaster). Would be great if the +Export Events button on category pages only exported the events listed in that category.

                            • Add Featured Image to Calendar Widget Display

                              Can you add a function to allow the display of the Event's Featured Image in the widget display on the right of the page listing the events. Right now, it only displays the headline and text, etc, with link to the full Event Post. But, if you could add the featured image and size it (30px x 30 px) for example, flush left or flush right, that would be great.
                              Thanks

                                  • Selling tickets thru WooCommerce Product Page, and not the Event Page - Improvements

                                    I use Beaver Builder and (more importantly) the new Beaver Themer plugin which allows for Woo product pages to be way more easily styled (praise be!). In order to benefit from those plugins, I would need to sell tickets using Woo’s product page and not the single event page. To that end I have followed your article:

                                    https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/selling-tickets-from-the-woocommerce-products-page/

                                    That mostly made sense, and worked. However, doing that you lose some functionality associated with the event page’s “Add to Cart” code. Namely, Woo’s “Add to Cart” won’t trigger the prompts for custom attendee data (if set).

                                    Would be great if the…

                                      If you run a site in a UTC timezone that uses GMT in Winter and observes DST (Daylight Saving Time) during the Summer (e.g. London/Europe uses BST (British Summer Time) in the Summer) and you are creating a recurring event series that spans the switch between GMT & BST time-zones (or vice-versa), then an alert should appear warning the user that it's not possible, and that they should create two event series that split the event either side of the timezone change. Otherwise, event in the series after the timezone change get incorrectly formatted.

                                      • Option to show EXCERPT on Upcoming events widget

                                        Would be great if in the PRO version, the events list widget could have the option to show the excerpt - a check box just like for the Price, Venue, City, Address, etc. Thanks :)

                                        • Add "View Your New Event" link to the Events Import page so you don't need to go back to Events and search to find it.

                                          It would save time to be able to view the new event imported from the Events Import page instead of having to take the extra steps.
