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. Allow scheduled imports from an FB event search page.

    I often use FB's event search function to find events at a local venue that does not post the events themselves... currently, I have to manually add each event from the search results, but it would be fantastic for the EA to simply(?) subscribe to the search results... an example URL would be: https://www.facebook.com/search/events/?q=goderich%20legion

    • Output the registrations to a table

      Output the registrations to a table so people can see who registered at the event page.

      • Add a filter for 'Month' to the filter bar

        When you have hundreds or thousands of events, there needs to be an option to filter by month in the filter bar, especially when viewing in list view.

          • Please could the csv import include a field for "featured"

            https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/featured-events/

            Wonderful! Thanks! But can we mark some events as featured via the icsv upload please? ie might you be able to make an additional field available to match to the csv column for "featured" ?

              • Add category name and/or tag name(s) as information available to add to the new (lovely) single event embed shortcode

                When we embed a single event with the new shortcode (tribe_event_inline) - for which thank you - we need to display the name of the event category and, ideally, also the tag name(s).
                Any chance of adding these to the available Shortcode Variables?

                  tribe_events view="day" shortcode supports categories, but it doesn't support tags. A number of people have already voiced the usefulness of this filter. I couldn't find an existing suggestion to vote for.

                  • Import the Meetup reservations

                    I’m not sure if this is an Event Aggregator question or a Event Tickets Plus request, but what I would like to do is import the Meetup reservations and add them to the reservations for an event that a person directly signs up for on the site. In other words, the total should reflect the sum of both, and the tickets list should include the details for both (in aggregate).

                    • allow for importing single facebook events in bulk

                      We used to be able to import a list of single facebook events. Now we have to go through 3 steps for each one. A pain if you have 20 events to import. The whole purpose of Aggregator is to make things easier, not harder than in previous versions.

                        A setting tab setting in events aggregator that allows entering sites who also have ECP installed. Digest events similar to the current Events Aggregator.

                          Hello,
                          This is partially possible. Go to the month view of the calendar you want to import. Go to the bottom and copy the target link from the “Export the month’s events” button.
                          Should be something like this:
                          http://domain.com/events/?ical=1&tribe_display=month

                          On the site where you want to import go to import > iCalendar, and paste in the url. For start date select what you need. Hit preview and you’ll see the events. Now you just need to select the ones you need and import them.

                          Hope this helps!

                        • duplicate tickets

                          Apparently tickets are not a registered WP custom post type because you can't duplicate them like you can events and ticket fieldsets with the Post Duplicator plugin.

                          It would be fabulous to have a link "Duplicate ticket" appear next to "Edit", etc for each ticket.

                          I have 7 tickets for one event that are woocommerce tickets. The price changes for those after a certain date, so I have to create 7 duplicates at the new price. Kind of a pain.

                              The Tickets Plus module should allow the organizers to receive the payments directly. I am using this for a community calendar where I have multiple organizers that want to sell tickets. It is my understanding that I have a choice of split payments where I am liable for the money if the event cancels or I have to accept the entire amount and make my organizer wait for their money until the event is over. Either way I am in the middle and on the hook. I don't want to be responsible for their money or the refunds or the…

                              • Add entry field for Event Excerpt to the Community Events event submission screen to improve look of tooltip

                                I am using Community Events to have non-admin people submit their events for course listings.
                                The tooltip for these events look awful as the HTML is stripped out of the event description when the wp_trim_words functions is run.
                                I realize that this has already been addressed by not stripping the HTML from the excerpt of the event, however entry of the excerpt is not available in the event submission form in the Community Events plugin.
                                On the event submission form in Community Events please add the Excerpt as a entry field.

                                  It would be great if one could upload 2 images for an event. One as a default and one, which would show when there are no places left for the event. (No RSVPs and / or Tickets left.)

                                  With this the visitors could immediately see if the event is already sold out, or if there are still available places.

                                      Because my website is a marketplace platform, what concerns me is rather the situation where someone “fake” an ad (of a product or an activity) in order to get some money without actually delivering – so I was wondering: whether there could be a function like an escrow account associated with split payments function, where the website admin collects all the payments at the first place then releases the proportional payments only after the real product or activity is confirmed to have been delivered. That would also solve the potential problems such as cancellation and refunds, which are listed as…

                                        This is a great concept, but I’m unsure about the legality and technical feasibility if an event is far in the future, such as more than 30 days. Other users, please add your votes here if interested in this feature. And feel free to share your comments about the far-future concerns if you have any expertise or opinions about that.

                                      • Event posts on homepage

                                        I want to be able to feature specific events in the main loop without displaying all events on the homepage.

                                          One of the major feedbacks we have received from several clients is that their customers are stating they are not receiving an email with their tickets. Granted I know that some email providers block it for some reason or it may go to spam, but we would like to see an option to click on a purchaser and have an option to resend their tickets to them.
