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 a user to see and confirm (or change) fields when importing

    Event Aggregator creates many duplicate entries when importing events from Facebook. This is because a person on Facebook enters the venue and organizer name as they see fit. This means lot of double work after importing.

    It would save lot of time if the fields could be displayed and confirmed upon importing.

    • +Export Events button on category page to export category events only

      At the moment, the +Export Events button on a category page adds every single event (on the whole calendar) to your diary (which is a disaster). Would be great if the +Export Events button on category pages only exported the events listed in that category.

      • Allow users to create new categories on community event form

        Admins should be able to enable or disable a feature that would allow users to add new categories on the community events form.

        • Option to show EXCERPT on Upcoming events widget

          Would be great if in the PRO version, the events list widget could have the option to show the excerpt - a check box just like for the Price, Venue, City, Address, etc. Thanks :)

          • Add "View Your New Event" link to the Events Import page so you don't need to go back to Events and search to find it.

            It would save time to be able to view the new event imported from the Events Import page instead of having to take the extra steps.

            • Add an option to adjust ticketing to allow for a faster check-in

              We recently built a site for a client using Events Tickets Plus- client checks in over 500 users a day but the response time for checking in was slow to load, so we stripped all of the backend out of the response showing only a large green confirmation message for attendee being checked in successfully or a large red confirmation for an already checked-in ticket, reducing the scan to check-in time to under 2 seconds. If you'd like us to share the snippets we would be happy to do so but this would really be a great option in the…

              • Multi-currency compatibility for selling tickets

                We sell in multiple currencies (where prices are fixed in each currency, not just converted from one to another) and so we operate in a multi-currency Woocommerce environment which means we cannot use Events Calendar without it becoming multi-currency compatible. Multi-currency is typically provided by a plugin such as Aelia which is what we use https://aelia.co/shop/currency-switcher-woocommerce/ Please adopt this so we can sell tickets to events anywhere around the world, with prices set independentlly in each location, in their local currency!

                • Mark import as featured

                  It would be great if imports could be marked as featured so that all events from that source get featured tag rather than having to go in and manually mark them.

                  • Allow file upload for pdfs

                    Currently community events limits file upload to images. An additional pdf upload would be handy.

                    • Make exporting reports better with fees, payment gateway by event

                      Hey,

                      It would be nice to be able to export an event with all the details:

                      Tickets Type Sold, Quantity, Ticket Face Value, Fees, Additional Fees, Payment Gateway

                      This way getting all that information doesn't require 4 different exports and saves time when responding to your organizers.

                      Can we make this happen?

                      Cheers

                      Jo

                      • Make it easy to separate community events from other events

                        Now, community events (CE) all get merged into the Main event calendar. We have no control to speak of to keep the two separate. I can call just CE, or I can call everything BUT CE, but there is no simple way just remove CEs from the from the MC. All your filters are -inclusive- and you have no -exclude- filters. If our categories change (as they do) with the current setup we also have to edit every -inclusive- call.

                        2) there is no way for force a category on CEs. Folks adding a new ce have the option of…

                              Thank you for taking the time to reach out and share an idea. It’s good to know what would be handy for the devs.

                              To quote our chief strategist “we’ll be adding it for sure”. We do not have an ETA. This was just added to our roadmap which maps out over a years worth of the team’s time and is full up at the moment. But as soon as we’re able this feature will be added. Hopefully it is something we can slip in when there is a small opening.

                              Cheers!

                            • Required privacy policy or terms checkbox for tickets

                              Privacy policies are required by EU law for anyone collecting personal information. This should show up automatically as a link or something on the event page. And everyone who RSVP's or buys tickets for an event should have to tick a box where they accept the privacy policy.

                              • 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.

                                    It would be great if the advanced filter bar completely replaced the standard bar once installed. This was we can maintain the functionality of both, but only have a single filter/search bar on the screen. Right now it is a bit confusing to have two separate filters. I have noticed several complains on the forums and on the feature request page stating that viewers are becoming confused by the filter options and unable to find their desired events. Although many solutions have been proposed, I think merging the two bars would mitigate a majority of the concerns and reduce space…

                                      for example, the Event A has been planed on
                                      12/03/2015 8:00am – 5:00pm
                                      13/03/2015 10:00am – 4:00pm
                                      14/03/2015 10:00am – 5:00pm

                                      3. Multiple location

                                      For same event, has been plan on different location and different time

                                      I’d like to have ability to adding above under same event entry. :)

                                      BTW Great plugin!!

                                      • One-page Checkout on Event pages

                                        For a streamlined purchase process, put the checkout form directly on the Event page. (See Woocommerce One-Page Checkout by Prospress)

                                        This would also solve the request by several people to be able to skip the Cart page to go direct to Checkout, and might also resolve the issue of quantities being changed in the Cart or at Checkout.

                                        If there were a dynamic panel right above the checkout form that summarized the custom data fields that would also potentially resolve the issue of making changes during checkout that are then not reflected in those fields .

                                        There are a few…

                                        • Collect All Attendee Information on a Separate Page

                                          I'm happy to see that we can now collect info from all attendees. However, it is a bit problematic to collect this information on the event page. It would be a more advantageous workflow if the users were allowed to input the attendee information on either the checkout page or a page specifically designed for this purpose. Requesting attendee information on the event page causes design conflicts and can make the page very cluttered/large depending upon the amount of tickets purchased and information requested. I highly recommend that you adjust the UX accordingly for a more user friendly experience.
