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. Optimize / clean up event submit form by removing selectable options

    A switch in the settings to hide or turn off the follwowing fields in the event submit form would be useful:
    d) Timezone (not necessary if there are only events of one country/region)
    e) Recurring events (not every calendar needs them)

    • Add Permissions & Capabilities for Ticket Fieldsets

      Currently Permissions can be added for:
      - Events
      - Venues
      - Organisers

      https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/admin-roles-and-permissions/

      However there are no capabilities for "Ticket Fieldsets" therefore it uses the "edit_posts" functionality.

      You are therefore unable to segment these users from being able to also edit posts.

      Would be good to have a set of capabilities for ticket fieldsets
      i.e.

      edit_tribe_ticket
      read_tribe_ticket
      delete_tribe_ticket
      delete_tribe_ticket
      edit_tribe_ticket
      edit_others_tribe_ticket
      delete_others_tribe_ticket
      publish_tribe_ticket
      edit_published_tribe_ticket
      delete_published_tribe_ticket
      delete_private_tribe_ticket
      edit_private_tribe_ticket
      read_private_tribe_ticket

          • Include [View-Event] link in notification of newly imported event

            When a new event is imported a notification is given which includes a link to any new venue or new organizer. However the new event itself is not linked.

            The new event listing is likely to be the view that one is most likely to want to look at to see if it has rendered correctly, or to edit some personal content to the event.

            It could be a simple fix to add [View your event listing] to the notification.

            This is what is currently shown:

            Import complete!
            1 new event was imported. 1 new image was imported.
            1 new…

            • Show The Events Calendar link - configure to "open in new tab" rather than replacing the

              Would like to include the "Powered by Events Calendar Pro" link on my client's calendars (to share the love and tell the world how awesome the plugin is) however, the link needs to open in a new tab rather than replace my clients calendar page. A simple mark-up is all that is needed.

                • Fix the Swagger.io docs

                  The Swagger.io import fails with about 50'sh errors. It is a great idea since it helps us export clients, etc. When it has so many errors it is less useful, though.

                  Some errors include simple adjustments like "type: int" vs "type: integer".

                  Keep up the great work.

                  • Allow import of past facebook events

                    Create a setting that allows for import of past events from facebook. Benefit is that it creates a robust history of events/organizers/venues. It also populates the calendar historically. All of this supports the credibility of the calendar

                    • Same filters for [tribe_events] as for [tribe_mini_calendar]

                      For [tribe_mini_calendar] shortcode we have a host of filter options such as city, ZIP, tag, category, etc. but for the [tribe_events] shortcode we only have category, featured, and date. It would be great to see all the other filter options on the [tribe_events] shortcode, as well

                        • Hiding or filtering WooCommerce Event tickets from admin product list

                          I would really like to have a filter in the WooCommerce Product list (admin) to hide the tickets Event Ticket Plus generates there. I find the number of ticket products build up quickly and mostly I want to manage the (much smaller number of) non-event products in my store and don't want to have to plough through the entire list of events products to find those products.

                          Since I tend to access WooCommerce Ticket-products via the event admin page, I don't really need them in the product list, although I can Imagine it would be more flexible if a filter…

                            I am developing a web site for a concert venue. The site uses a third party for ticket sales processor. I need to send a ticket request to the third parties site with a query string and not internally on the site with eCommerce. This must also be easy for my client to repeat, they cannot build a button each time. I like your plugin for my event calendar and I am hoping for a easy solution.

                              • Add a Search Bar to a single event page

                                How about adding the search bar to a single event page. When I am on a single event page the only thing takes me back to the main calendar is the link at the top that reads, "All Events". I run a state-wide event calendar and it would be great to keep people on the site. If they don't find what they are looking for on that single event maybe they would search for others if the search feature was on that event. Most people look for a search and they may not go back to the All Events page.

                                  Wouldn't i be nice have a dropdown in the ticket area so the user can just choose a ticket (when having multiple tickets) at that line and not having to scroll down (Bad UX when having many types of tickets). After the ticket is selected the right price is shown and you can just fill in the attendee information and go to the check out.

                                      It would be great to see who created the event and a little about them when viewing the event via the event's page!

                                      • ICS feed stats

                                        We should be able to track the number of subscribers to a given ICS feed link.

                                        I know that this will be inaccurate, as Google only fetches once for all the Google account subscribers, but as long as we can see the following details, we can have a rough estimate/idea of the feed usage (especially with ETAG and Cookie IDs):
                                        1) IP Address with IP2location
                                        2) HTTP Header: Request context; including From, User Agent, Host & etc...
                                        3) HTTP Header: Response context; Allow, Server
                                        4) HTTP Header: Date with User's timezone
                                        5) HTTP Header: Proxies
                                        6) HTTP Header: Do Not…

                                        • Custom ICS Feed URL (permalink)

                                          We should be able to make custom permalinks for ICS feeds, so, instead of:
                                          http://wpshindig.com/events/map/?action=tribe_geosearch&tribe_paged=1&tribe_event_display=map&featured=false&tribe-bar-geoloc-lat=51.5073509&tribe-bar-geoloc-lng=-0.12775829999998223&tribe-bar-geoloc=London&ical=1&tribe_display=map

                                          We should be able to specify .ICS export links for certain custom filter, like:
                                          http://wpshindig.com/eventsfeeds/yearlylondonevents.ics

                                          This is a much nicer link and easier to distribute in posters and QR codes.
