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. Allow events with same title and time in different venues

    Consider the following CSV, where two distinct events with identical titles and times happen at two venues simultaneously:

    https://gist.github.com/stevygee/6d657e3585af3a0f4ef6edfed7a2359a

    I was expecting the importer two add two events from these two records. However, since it only compares title and date, it wrongly assumes these are identical. The importer adds an event from the first record, then updates it with data from the second record.

    The fix would be quite easy, either:
    https://gist.github.com/stevygee/51f9822aa873414baa1b137188ceef6f

    Otherwise, please allow us to filter $query_args in File_Importer_Events.php line 59 so developers can tweak how events are matched.

    • Allow the sale of other WooProducts with tickets on events page

      Often there are items tied into an event Organizer would like to sell at the time of purchasing tickets (event t-shirts, caps, journal Ads). As confirmed with support there is no way to show these add-one on the events page. Suggest a feature where an organizer could add existing WooCommerce products to be sold with tickets. Note that for simplicity these would be products to be picked up at event (no need to go through the shipping dialogue).

      • Add featured image to Events widget

        We have the ability to choose lots of different data to display or hide... all except image. I really want to show my next three events with images and details below instead of the clunky calendar graphic with the date. it just doesn't look good.

        • embedded map in list / multiple maps function

          My idea is to have a function that would allow for embedding a google map in the individual events within the list of events.

          This would also enable adding it to a modal or pop-up if there's not room to show it there for a quick view of the location without leaving the list.

          I managed to get so far trying this myself using the tribe_get_embedded_map(); and map templates and added it to a bootstrap modal button. But my issue was this function does not allow for multiple maps per page.

          Please vote for this idea! Thanks!

          • Show organizers in full-site search results

            • the-events-calendar-community-events.4.5.9 Front End Editing content issue.

              This plugin is not proving wysiwyg editor in front end edit form.

              If we edit an event from front end , it is showing HTML tags directly in teaxtarea this is not a cool feature.

              It must be an wysiwyg editor,

              • Improve the Events Calendar Pro Week View

                I'm afraid the Week View in Events Calendar Pro just isn't a good user experience. With events stacking on top of each other, it's impossible to see what's actually going on during a day.

                In the short-term, it would be nice to have the Week View list out event titles in the same way the month view does - title only with hover events to get further details.

                Why not just use the month view? Well, it's pretty slow once the site is filled up with events. I'm making an assumption here the week view would load up in about…

                    • Add option on event website to go to the website or to the events page

                      I tell readers they can post their event on my events calendar. They go in and set it all up, add image and text, venue, everything. Plus it asks for the event website, which they enter. On the front end, though, after they did all this work, you click on the event and it goes straight to the event website and all that info that was entered on the events page is wasted, as it doesn't go there. I want people to go to the events page, as it's good for my website that they stay on it, and then…

                        • Simple(r) checkout with PayPal & Stripe, without Woo

                          Installing/maintaining/styling/troubleshooting WooCommerce seems like overkill for many applications and seems like a common criticism of Event Tickets Plus. The plugin's existing functionality (configuring & selecting multiple ticket levels and quantities) seems perfect for handing off to simpler checkout processes than Woo - namely Stripe's excellent Checkout or the ever-popular PayPal. Seems like an easy win for simpler applications.

                            Since I run a business that sells services, online courses and physical products next to tickets for small workshops and live courses, and find that in the search results there are a lot of tickets for events (both future and past events) that I really don't want in that results. I can't just filter out the product CPT, because I also have other products in store, I do want to show.

                            So I really need something (preverably a setting) to prevent event tickets from appearing in the search result (both the general WP-search and the WooCommerce Search). Whatever sollution should…

                              Have a look at the work being done at www.what3words.com - their system is even better and easier to understand than long/lat and I think it would integrate really well with the Events Calendar.

                                      • 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.

                                          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.
