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.

I suggest you ...

  1. H1 duplicate

    Hello,

    I do not know if this option is feasible or not, but I propose.

    For a good SEO, it is recommended to have only one H1 per page.

    Currently, on the page of an event, there is 2 H1. One put by Wordpress (<h1 class = "entry-title">) and the other taken by the widget (<h1 class = "tribe-events-single-event-title">) where we find the title of our event.

    I wanted to know if it was possible to remove the H1 widget and replace it with the one proposed by Wordpress to best meet the SEO requirement.

    Thank you

    • Make Filter Bar compatible with shortcoded calendars

      Would be nice to add the filter bar feature to every page with a calendar via shortcode, not only in the event page.

      Then it would allow you to make filtered calendars on pages, and let to the user play with the other fields to check information.

      • community events social media

        Provide a single location for venue or organizer to enter their upcoming events, which will then auto populate the venue's social media accounts (FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc) and their emailer program. This would allow us to offer a Premium Package to venues that want a one-stop solution to marketing their events.

        • Add drag-drop interactivity to calendar

          I realize it's a big undertaking, however, it would be super-cool if the calendar allowed users to drag-drop events to either move them from day to day or from time to time within a day. Additionally, if that feature were to be added, it would be helpful to have a hook such that we could react to the changing of an event.

          • Add links to the top of the calendar for previous/next months

            My background is in usability (I have a degree in Human Factors Psychology). One of the things that I was surprised not see in the calendar view was a set of links at the TOP of the calendar for previous/next months. I see them now at the bottom, but as a user looking to go to the next month, and with the bottom of the calendar cut off on my screen, I was confused for a bit when trying to figure out how to get to the next month.

            It would be fine to have the links at the bottom,…

            • inside the widget: show only when registration is open

              It would be awesome to add option inside the widget: show only when registration is open.
              It would be helpful when you have several events and couple of them got registration already closed.

              • Ability to perform a CSV import from any URL

                The free CSV importer should be able to import from any publicly-accessible URL instead of having to first upload to WordPress.

                Additional functionality (worth paying for in the sense that it could be only available with an Event Aggregator license) I'd like to see is the ability to set intervals for scheduling re-importing from a CSV URL.

                One-time and scheduled CSVs via URL would be useful for getting data from other sites that aren't running The Events Calendar (which Event Aggregator can already handle) and for situations where a third party is providing the data to us, sometimes on regular…

                  Here’s a tip that might come in handy while this functionality does not exist natively:

                  We’ve heard of some users having success with WP All Import (or similar plugins). These links may be helpful if you want to try going this route:
                  - http://www.wpallimport.com/tour/scheduled-imports/
                  - http://www.wpallimport.com/documentation/custom-fields/theme-plugin-fields/

                  Please do add your votes and comments if interested in this idea so we can gauge the community’s interest in such functionality.

                • Merge locations

                  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!!!

                  • Ability to filter OUT events by keyword

                    Add the ability to filter OUT events by keyword in a feed. This is the converse of the existing filter functionality.

                    Use Case: I have a scheduled event import of an organizations events which contains a "Monthly Meeting" that I'd prefer NOT to import. As it stands now, I need to manually trash each "Monthly Meeting" event that gets imported. Being able to set a filter to ignore "monthly meeting" would save me some tedious work.

                    • customize color for tribe-events-list-separator-month

                      I would like to be able to customize the color for the class : tribe-events-list-separator-month

                      Being able to change the BG color/styling would be very handy indeed for a site that doesn't use white as it's BG.

                      Thanks!

                        I find it rather difficult to modify the lang files whenever Event Calendar is updated. Can your company put in a lang file for Chinese so that it can automatically be integrated into your plugin? I am more than happy to help you do minor translation in Chinese for free.

                                      • Add the ability to have multiple days for one event type. Would be very helpful for weekend events and would display correctly.

                                        The only way currently to enter an weekend long event is to add 2 events, one on Saturday and one on Sunday. Other wise it does not display correctly and confusing to the reader. You desperately need a weekend even option with different recurring options. I see many people are asking for this. Thank you!

                                        • LearnDash Integration

                                          Event Espresso integrates with LearnDash such that event attendees can be added to LD courses or groups. I would love to see a similar integration.
