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. Can we Invite people to an event?

    I would like to invite both members and non-members of my site. Just like using google calendars using email addresses and/or members from the website. An "invite all members" option would be great as well.

      • Add 4, 6, 8 and 12 hour intervals to update of event aggregator

        We need something in between hourly and daily scheduled imports. Hourly exceeds our maximum daily imports before all feeds are updated, but daily is not frequent enough. Thank you.

          • Fix the Title column width on Events

            The width on the Event title column is way too small. My title ends up wrapping and making each letter be on a new line.

            • Export Attendee Information with dates and time they originally requested the ticket or RSVP in the CSV file

              When I download the CSV file, it doesn't tell when a specify customer purchased or RSVP for the event. This is very important and basic information that needed.

              • allow entire months to be selected in non-month views

                When clicking the date Selector in either Map or List, I can’t seem to select an entire month. When clicking the desired Month, it will not update the date field until an individual date is selected. The ability to select an entire month’s worth of events in either view would be be preferable to my visitors.

                Is there anything that can be done about these items?

                • 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.

                  • Upcoming Events Sidebar Widget Needs to be Clickable to Open Full Calendar

                    Please make it so when people click on the top of the calendar image of the sidebar widget it opens the page with the full calendar -- or make it so I can set this up.

                    Invariably I watch people new to my site try to do this. I have tried to do it. Other calendars do it. Why doesn't the Event Calendar do it. Did I just miss not setting it up right?

                    Thank you.
                    Carolyn

                    • Option to have community events in main view sidebar

                      This is regarding the main event view (https://example.com/events). This would be an optional layout configured within Community settings.

                      For logged in users, default showing sidebar with their community events (My Events), and button to add additional events, with way to edit events in My Events.

                      For non-logged in users, default showing full width main, with Community Events button (or similar) to show or hide sidebar.

                      For any users allow sidebar to be hidden, giving full width to main view (e.g., Month events).

                        Out venue database is filling up with addresses of places that are useless on a menu without a venue name. Can you please not allow venues to go on the menu unless it has a name like Capitol Theater.

                        • Please list recurring events only once in list

                          My events list is dominated by a few recurring events and I have to scroll through mnay future years of individual recurrences before I get to my current events. Can't recurring events be summarized in the events list as a single item? This would be much more convenient.

                          Thank you very much for your help.

                            When managing cancelled RSVP attendees, instead of just deleting a booked RSVP, can this simply mark them as 'not going' so as to keep a record of all of those who have booked and have it still update the stock quantity?

                              We had an organization we wanted to allow to purchase tickets before going on sale to the public. However the event gets posted to our calendar and we'd rather it not be seen by the public until the general sale. This seems like something many business and organizations might want.

And everyone who RSVP's or buys tickets for an event should have to tick a box where they accept the privacy policy.

                                        Currently when Event Aggregator imports recurring events from Facebook, it imports it as one event (rather than a series of events). The first event is mistakenly the start time/date, and the last occurrence is the finish time/date.

                                        Here’s the event we’re trying to import from FB:
