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. Follow-up Event Email for all customers, not just attendees

    Currently you can configure Follow-up Emails to send auto emails to Event attendees. It would be nice to have an option to configure these auto Follow-up Emails to send to all customers; not just event attendees. This would allow you to market upcoming Events to your customers.

    • qr code multiple-use for attendance

      the QR code is used for check-in, but let's say we have an event or a course event that needs to record those attendees monthly attendance for reference.

      • Hi

        Hire more people. As someone paying for your products atleast 4 of them. Your support sucks in that its only through your forum and then it takes a full day or more to get a response. I have been working on the same issue for over a week. It takes forever. I am clearly frustrated. Please just get more help.

          • Allow users to request Attendee Information using Community form (front end)

            Being able to request Additional Attendee Information is a fantastic feature we can use when creating a ticket.

            However as it stands only the admin can use this. My users who submit their events and request tickets on the front end have no way to use this feature.

            They have to contact me and I have to manually add it for them. Very time consuming and not practical for a large site.

            Request > Can this functionality be added to the community submission form on the front end.

            • Assign default event categories to specific users

              It would be great to be able to set a default category for each user and/or restrict users to publish in this category. For posts, there is the plugin called "Restrict Author Posting", the same function for EC events would be of great use.

              • Prevent event aggregator from loading images when importing events

                Prevent event aggregator from loading images when importing events from facebook !

                It would be great if there is a choice if facebook images are imported or not. Because of the copyright law there are many situations where one would like to import the event but NOT the image!

                At the moment the only possibility is to delete the images after the import by oneself. Depending on the import settings the images are imported again when imports from facebook are updated etc....

                • Force a Run Import on several selected Scheduled Imports

                  Just like you can select several plugins to update, I would like to select several "Scheduled Imports" and force a "Run Import" on all of them at once. Since I'm often getting that red circle error saying last time of import is unknown, this would be a nice way to make sure the import has been run. And it would just be a useful option in general.

                  • Add a datepicker for birth dates (or any other dates) to tickets

                    As we offer many events for kids (e.g. ski lessons) it is mandatory to receive the kid's birth date. If we just add a text field, we get different date formats and can't use them for further planing in Excel.

                    • Option to disable the auto-generated /events page for membership sites

                      Membership sites that have page-blocking functionality are unable to restrict access to the auto-generated calendar page generated by the plugin. This is a security/privacy gap.

                      You have published a helpful KB article explaining how to manipulate the functions.php file but this is a cumbersome solution (and subject to accidental overwrite in future plugin updates) that could easily be solved by a simple preference tickbox:

                      0 DISABLE AUTO-GENERATED PAGES

                      The content of the standard, auto-generated /events page can easily be replicated with a regular WP page and shortcodes. So, a membership site can be secure and get the needed calendar info.

                        Integration with Woo Commerce My Account...

                        Our customers requested their purchased Events – usually multiples – be displayed in their My Account Page.

                        Tech Support have advised us this isn't currently possible, but that we should add the request there.

                        Many thanks,

                            • NEED BOOKING!!

                              A lot of businesses, like ours, not only require event calendars and ticket sales, but also the ability for our customers to book available amenities!
                              We have a solution to that. The problem is that plugin calendar and your plugin calendar, do not share info..so there's a lot of manual editing that needs to take place every time someone buys a ticket or books a reservation on the calendar.
                              You guys build a booking system into your impressive list of plugins and you guys will own the world! ;)

                                  • Do not include deleted tickets or cancelled orders in participant list sold units.

                                    Right now, if you look at the number of ticket sold in the participant list, it include tickets that were sold then cancelled, or completely deleted orders. I suggest that this number only includes existing participant or that another item is created to see the number of expected attendees and active tickets sold.

                                      Hey everyone!

                                      We wanted to let you know that we recently released Event Tickets and Event Tickets Plus 4.3.2 and it included a fix for the issue you reported for ticket sales reports not being accurate after tickets had been cancelled or refunded. Please update when you have the chance and defintely let us know if you continue to run into any problems.

                                      Thanks so much for the heads up and for your patience while we worked on this!

                                      Cheers,

                                      I would like to share my idea of using the WooCommerce filters when it is enabled to show the Event cost. For instance, I wanted to show installments instead full price, but the plugin that show installments doesn't work because it uses WooCommerce woocommerce_get_price hook. Would be awesome if Event Tickets use it too.

                                      • different fees for different organizers

                                        Hey guys! Vote on this feature that would allow you to choose different fees for different organizers.

                                        For example, on events over 500 tickets, our fees are 4.9%+ $3. But for small events it would be 3.9% +$1

                                        Let's make this happen!

                                        • Add the ability to 'Filter By Author'

                                          I use the "advanced post manager' plug-in and would like the ability to 'filter by author'. I want to be able to filter my events by author. I can't always use 'filter by Organizer'

                                          I would like to be able to select 'Author' as one of the active filters so that I can filter by events by the author that created the event.
