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. Default location to assign to events imported from private meetups

    When a meet up is private, then the location of events doesn't get imported. The event won't show up on any location search. It would be great to have a "Default Location" that could be assigned to each meet up group import. For example, if Los Angeles Bicycle Meetup is set to private, then when the import is setup for that meet up, there could be a field in which we could enter "Los Angeles, CA" or zip code, etc, and that would at least allow those events to be searched by area.

    Thanks!

    • Import Google Calendar attached images as event image

      I am quite surprised this feature has not been included in a prior iCal Importer update or the release of Event Aggregator.

      Can Event Aggregator import the attached image in Google Calendar and use it as the event image for Wordpress? I know this can be done as some other platforms already do this.

      I have hundreds of events on my calendar, and adding an image to every single one is not an option.

      Thank you!

      • a built-in feature which allows for volume-based discounts

        Here is the Use-Case:

        Buy two or more tickets at once and you get a discount of 20%.

        Now if a user chooses 2 or more tickets, then a discount of 20% is automatically applied without the need to enter any coupon.

        • Add "Frequency" to bulk actions for scheduled imports

          The ability to select multiple scheduled imports and switch the frequency (daily, hourly, weekly, etc) would be great. I often need to update several imports at a time depending on seasons and going one-by-one is rather tedious.

            • Create a "Season Pass" options for Theatre's.

              Season Pass (for a theatre or concert venue). It would be great to sell a Season pass good for admission to a series of plays. For example: if I have 8 shows in a year-long season... I want to sell a pass good for a single admission to each show.

              • Filter out depricated functions in tech docs

                In Support on website, tech docs have more depreciated functions than current one.

                Please provide a fitlered list on only acitve functions.

                Whenever I get an idea to develop something with Events Calendar I have to page through endlessly to find and learn about what functions could assist me.

                • Add elements below the tickets section after adding tickets to a page

                  We add tickets to pages for our shows, instead of adding tickets to an event in the calendar. When we do this, it's not easy to add an element below the tickets section on the page. Would like to be able to add page elements below the tickets section easily from the WordPress "Edit Page" screen. But Event Tickets Plus forces the tickets section to be at the bottom of the page.

                  • Make Going / Not Going Selection for registration be optional

                    It can be useful making optional this selection, i can't understand why a user need to register for an event without going to it.

                      • 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.

                        • Limit RSVP or Woocommerce ticket Registration to ONE (or selectable value) for the same event

                          I think it's necessary have a feature to limit the number of RSVP registrations that a single user can do. It can be useful both with mandatory logging for RSVP registration and with guest users. It doesn't make sense that a single user can register more than one reservation.

                          • Use pictures and screenshots to explain templates in your knowledgebase

                            As a new user I find it very hard to relate the knowledgebase tutorials to what the calendar will look like. There are lots of different views but how to know which view is which? Showing examples of what is possible and relating these to the showcase for example would make it a lot simpler to understand what is possible.

                              There is no way to edit an venue when viewing it, unlike editing an event. This seems to be a smple omission. Please correct it.

                              • More types and validation options for ticket fieldsets

                                The ability to save "ticket fieldsets" for re-use is a great time-saver. However, I find myself wanting to have more options for field types and validation options.

                                Some examples:

                                1) number field type
                                2) email validation (could be as simple as validating that entered string is xxx@yyy.zzz where zzz is a valid TLD)
                                3) phone number validation
                                4) date validation
                                5) custom validation

                                Thanks!

                                      • Create a "template" for scheduling games / practices

                                        Use the Event Calendar for scheduling games / practices in a league so that when displayed the users see date, start time, end time, home team, visiting team, venue. Most schedulers I know use Excel in developing their schedules, so a csv import to Event Calendar with the noted fields should accomplish the goal. It could be expanded to categorize the games into regular, tournament, practice, etc .....

                                        • Pre-screen/approval list management for when only a few tickets left

                                          As an event manager, I would like to approve attendees when the ticket count is low so that I can award a ticket to the attendee with the greatest case to attend.

                                          Use case: For instance, our events can be used as a prerequisite to
                                          start a chapter. If the ”interested in starting a chapter” box is checked
                                          in registration for one registrant but not the other, I would prioritize
                                          the one who checked it.
