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. Third party for ticket sales processor

    I am developing a web site for a concert venue. The site uses a third party for ticket sales processor. I need to send a ticket request to the third parties site with a query string and not internally on the site with eCommerce. This must also be easy for my client to repeat, they cannot build a button each time. I like your plugin for my event calendar and I am hoping for a easy solution.

    • Hide remaining tickets

      I want to hide the number of remaining tickets, until a certain threshold is met.

      At the moment I do that by adding that threshold in src/views/wootickets/tickets.php in line 131
      if ( $remaining && $remaining < $threshold)

      It would be nice though, if that threshold could be somehow defined in the Wordpress backend, so that I can for example define a global threshold and can turn that functionality to hide on or off. (Like in woocommerce).
      In addition it would be nice, if for each ticket the threshold could be set individually.
      So for example, the check is then performed. …

      • Allow orderby / order to be passed to Rest API endpoints

        Allow user the ability to pass through orderby / order via query to the Rest API endpoints.

        E.g.
        /wp-json/tribe/events/v1/events?order=desc
        /wp-json/tribe/events/v1/events?orderby=id
        /wp-json/tribe/events/v1/events?orderby=start_date&order=desc

        • Allow a default image for Organisers and (Aggregator) Scheduled Import Categories

          If there is no image provided by the Organiser OR imported event, then allow a default image foreach Organiser or category.

          • Daylight Saving Alert

            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.

            • Improve Map View - Multiple Events Same Venue

              Improve Map View for multiple events in the same venue.

              Map View displays only one event for each venue in the map. It would be great if:
              1) for each venue in the map, the popup shows the list of all the events happening there
              2) the popup info for the events should include also the date and time of the event; and possibly also the featured image

              I feel that Map View is extremely useful and deserves some improvement.
              Please consider the following examples from booking.com and groupon.com:

              • "This Weekend" / "This Week" / "This Month" Options in Filter Bar / Tribe Bar

                Such a feature would help tremendously for people who want to know what's on this weekend or see what's coming up next month. This isn't immediately obviously when looking at the a chronological list of events and the date picker is cumbersome for this sort of task.

                • duplicate event without duplicating it's Eventbrite ID

                  Right now, if you duplicate or clone an event in Wordpress, it duplicates with the same Eventbrite ID as the existing post -- so changes to the new event overwrite the existing one. It would be better to be able to duplicate an event (as as draft) and allow it to create its own Eventbrite ID when published. This is important because recurring events are not supported with your Eventbrite plugin.

                  • google calendar button

                    You have several complaints in the forum that the Google Calendar button takes the user away from the website. Modifying the code will be overwritten when we update the plugin. So why haven't you changed this behavior in the original code so that the button opens in a new tab?

                    • Allow import from Wild Apricot

                      We import events for a couple of organizations that are using Wild Apricot (https://www.wildapricot.com). Since Wild Apricot isn't support by EA, we import the events via ics file.

                      If EA supported automated event import for Wild Apricot it would certainly make updating events much easier.

                      Thanks!

                      • Two way iCal sync via Outlook for editors

                        We need a calendar plugin that will be able to be edited via Outlook (iCal 2-way sync).

                        This plugin has most of the features we need in a WP calendar system minus the connection with Exchange (or 2-way iCal sync for editors).

                        We are going to be building a 120+ multisite environment and each of those sites need to have a calendar that can be edited from within Outlook (iCal 2-way sync).

                        See my other suggestion for a different approach.

                            Beaver Builder's Page Builder is hugely popular with over 275K downloads. Right now the widget don't work completely in the page builder. Some functionality is missing and there are bugs.

                            It would be grand of there could be a concerted effort to make sure Event Calendar is fully compatible with Beaver Builder.

                              • Add ability to import multiple iCal files simultaneously

                                Currently in Event Aggregator, the iCal import is a one-by-one process. Select an iCal file, import it. Select next iCal file, import it. Etc.

                                If I could select and upload multiple iCal files at once and process them simultaneously it would make a tedious process much quicker.

                                Also, if you could auto-delete the iCal files from the WP Media section it would be appreciated. These files are not likely to be used as content as any page/post. Better yet, would be to upload them in some other fashion so they don't end up in the WP Media section at all.

                                  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!!!

                                    • Import Options for Tickets

                                      Importing Tickets via CSV is possible and functioning very good. But i use a picture for the Tickets which will be send to the customer. Also i collect Customer Information for each attendee from a predefinded selection.

                                      It would be very very nice if it could be possible to import also the Picture for the Tickets via CSV an to Import which predefined selection for the Attendee Information should be taken for the Tickets

The text block should be displayed immediately below the Header Image (if a header image has been uploaded).

                                          This would provide the ability to add custom instructions and other information to the ticket email for each ticket type without making…
