Currently we can use /Events or /Calendar as the root level or slug. I propose having the ability to use /Football/Schedule or /Parents/Calendar11 votes
Ability to add code to a slider to display one event per slide. The code syntax would contain the first, second, third, etc event to be displayed. A slide template would be available for customization. Expired events would not be displayed. Provide an alternate default slide in the case where there are no upcoming events.26 votespartial solution provided · AdminModern Tribe (Admin, The Events Calendar by Modern Tribe) responded
Some users have successfully made events sliders by using a third party plugin. You’ll need a slider plugin that can pull Custom Post Types.
Update: We now have a how-to for Slider Revolution and Essential Grid at https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/integrating-events-calendar-slider-revolution-essential-grid/
Add an option for these custom posts (each event) for social sharing (FB, twitter, etc. etc.) which will allow visitors to share directly a particular event from the event page.35 votes
Thank you very much for sharing this idea! For those interested there are plenty of third party options for sharing your events on social media, check out our article: http://m.tri.be/w7
App to Edit and Approve Calendar Entries for Android and iPhone. I really am enjoying your plugin. You have done really great work making it user friendly. An App would be so cool for those who are away from their computers.9 votes
This is certainly a cool idea Thom. It would represent a huge investment though. Considering users can already easily approve entries via their website interface from mobile devies, we definitely would need to see huge demand for this before we could build such a feature. We will keep an eye on the votes here.
A rating system for past events could be great. I was looking into implementing with GD star, but you can only have the option of rating ALL events, not past events due to the event date being set as meta data not as post date.19 votes
Event Calendar Pro lets me add additional fields - all of which show up on the Community Events edit screen. It would be good to have an option to customize which are private (admin only and not viewable via the my events screen) and which are public. Probably has an impact on template function calls as well.9 votes
At the moment, you have the option to select a default view for the main shop page, but the category pages default to a list view regardless of what you have selected for the shop page. I'd like to see the ability to select the default view for both the shop page and the category pages, but in the absence of this, I would think it would be better for the category pages default to be the same as what was selected for the main shop page.3 votes
We have a tutorial that will help you accomplish this: http://tri.be/support/documentation/display-categories-in-list-view/
I would love if the calendar was one page layout (in my case full width) and an event page a different one (in my case with a sidebar). The calendar needs lots of room so it makes it sense to display it full width but for an event page I would like to show ads and other content in a sidebar.38 votes
You can only pick a start date with 3.0.
If you have many hundreds of events coming up, many of them at the same location, map view becomes an unwieldy mess.
I suggest, like Google Analytics, the option to pick a RANGE.37 votes
An add-on to integrate with Mailchimp would be nice. I would like to automate with Mailchimp a weekly email reminding users of the weeks upcoming events. This would be a nature extension of any calendar plugin it would seem, but I have yet to find that integration.55 votes
This feature is already nicely handled by the third party paid addon: Event Calendar Newsletter Pro. It can directly send out email campaigns showcasing upcoming events, or be integrated into a recurring MailChimp one using MailChimp’s RSS campaigns. A great solution all-in-all.

Ideally I'd like to display the thumbnail, title, date and excerpt in the upcoming events. Currently title and date are supported, but the widget display is text centric and not very attractive.10 votes
You could do this by customizing the template for the widget. This tutorial will be useful for you: https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/add-thumbnails-to-upcoming-events-list-widget/
An indeterminate time would be useful for placeholder-style events where the specific details aren't known. A plugin-level setting for the text to display, e.g. "TBA", would be nice too.13 votes
I would love to see a simple or summary view of events. Just a list showing each event on one line with date, event name, organiser, and venue (and maybe a category): Eg:
06 - Tuesday Track at DISC - Brunswick Cycling Club - DISC
07 - The Loop Criterium - Eastern Veterans Cycling Club - Yarra Boulevard
Hey folks! We had to push the development of this feature a bit but have started work on it and hope to get it into one of our upcoming feature releases. More to come!

Though most events have a start time, they often do not have a definate end time. Please add an option not to define an event end time.16 votes
Good idea! I definitely see how this would be useful for you. One way you can already achieve this is to set the end time of the event to the same as the start time. Only the one time will show, so List View looks something like this (http://d.pr/i/FhYb) and the single event page looks like this (http://d.pr/i/hRxR). However, this doesn’t work if you use the Week View, as the event doesn’t show any time span.
If you want to remove the end time for all of your events, you can use this snippet: https://gist.github.com/ckpicker/75fecbc6209538b1daf2
it kind of work already bc the plugin have translation files but i have to make a link somewhere to domain/es/calendar witch my site have english and spanish. if i go straight to the URL with the prefix the calendar change the language but if you access the calendar and you press the flag for the other language, the page stay on the same language, doesn't change. BUT if i add on the url address bar domain/es/calendar then it get translated and it show the events in spanish. thats one thing. at least if i open the calendar with the prefix of the language and i open the event the info appear like i translated on the wp editor fine. BUT the custom fields still on english. qTranslate have some options like even change the excerpt choosing the flag or language tab could be cool if i could change the strings of the meta box base on the language, just like the editor tabs or excerpt. Also thnx to the plugin qTranslate Slug i can change the slug of posts, pages or any taxonomy, but on the calendar even if the title of the event get translated the slug is in english that is the default language. I'm not looking for full support but at least it will be nice if im on the calendar page or events list and i press the flag and it get translated to the other language. i found some work around playing with the theme functions.php adding some filters, but still kind of broke the whole qTranslate functionality.
im working on a website and im playing around with this. you can check it out here and see what im talking about and play around changing languages and changing url prefix of the calendarr slug:
it doesn't matter witch language you are on the calendar if you try to change it, it will just send you to the same page. i play with the .htaccess to make some tweaks to redirect but still doesn't fix or make the UX better. the only way around i taught was create a page with custom slugs that send you to the right calendar. other is a page with information about the calendars like a introduction and buttons with the URL to the translation calendar correctly. anyway, i have work around but is not friendly, you should be an advance user or developer to find a way around. in simple words, doesn't have to be just qTranslate, but the plugging at least could have some kind of integration with switching languages instead of been aviable of translated on some languages. of course if the website is just 1 language it will be translated friendly JUST for that language but it doesnt have an UI for switching or translating on the same dashboard. im not talking about the .MO because already have some.
sorry if iv been redundant, my english is not that good, im just trying to let myself well understood.
thnx in advance, still the plugin is awesome! :) thnx for the contribution to the WP community with this script.
im using the free version but im gonnna buy the PRO version so i could have the widget and the other stuff. it could be awesome if could manage languages switching for the end user and avoid making weird work arounds to make it work.

We worked hard to integrate our plugins with WPML to allow for multilingual calendars. We do not currently have plans to do the same for qTranslate, but we might consider it if enough people were interested.
First, collect the email address of the event creator. It would be great to add these people to our list. Second, send a notification to the event creator when it is posted. It might bring them back to the site again later.61 votes
I believe most of you would be interested in the following third-party plugin, that would allow you to do exactly that: https://wordpress.org/plugins/bnfw/
If we could copy and event to make a new one, it would save us from having to retype details that stay the same. The only thing we would have to change would be the date.123 votes
Thanks for the votes here. Multiple users report successfully using a third-party plugin to duplicate events. You’ll need to look for a plugin that can duplicate Custom Post Types.
Hopefully the third-party plugins suggested in the comments will work for now, and perhaps we’ll add this as a built in feature in the future.
At this point there is even third-party plugin meant specifically for our products :-)

Would like this to be integrated with BuddyPress so they synchronize smoothly, is this possible?159 votes
We are interested in improving the BuddyPress integration in a future release. Thanks for letting us know this feature is important to you!
it would be great, if i it´s possible to add seperate taxonomys to venues.
I´d like to have this feature for my website, cause i could then add venues without events and list all Venues.
My Page is in the spiritual sector, where i´d like to add real shops, where people can buy products in real.
Sometimes this shops can be venues, sometimes not.
This feature would be great.
Thanks for your great work with The Events Calendar!!15 votes
Whilst people can download a calendar to iCal I would like them to be able to 'subscribe' to a calendar so they get updates we post to events.303 votes
