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. Reusable Event Template

    In addition to being able to define a "ticket template" as described in another feature idea (https://tribe.uservoice.com/forums/195723-feature-ideas/suggestions/3825421-reusable-ticket-defaults-profiles-as-per-venues-a), I would suggest that this same functionality be extended to events themselves as well as tickets.

    We currently use the Advanced Content Templates plugin (https://www.advancedcontenttemplates.com) for this purpose but it is limited. For example, Advanced Content Templates can't:

    - insert the event category/categories
    - insert the event tag(s)
    - insert pre-defined a ticket(s)

    Having a templating system for events and tickets would be a real time-saver for those who hold the same or similar events multiple times.

    Thanks!

    • Combine underscore js

      Would you consider combining underscore-before.js and underscore-after.js into one file? Both files are small enough that gtmetrix suggests inlining them, so why separate files? I understand this might not be an issue for some, but one of my sites has over 120 https requests, so combining those files would help.

      • text message instead of an email

        when an event ticket purchase is completed, it would be convenient to have the option to send a text message instead of an email.

          • Sell event tickets on Facebook event page

            Eventbrite and Facebook have an integration where you can buy tickets directly from the Facebook event page, which get processed by Eventbrite. Is this possible t create for The Events Calendar Plus? It would really give a boost to ticket sales.

            • Integrate with Visual Composer to gain more control of design in the event editing screen

              If adding the Events Calendar Pro to a theme bundled with Visual Composer, the visual composer module should be available in the post editing screen for more control of design.

              • Bring an Android & iOS app for adding Events directly to website.

                Greetings,
                I am writing this to give you a suggestion to develop an Android and iOS app for your Event Plugin. I am a freelancer an often use this plugin for my clients as I love it. Unfortunately, Many Clients do not want to login to their dashboard to add an event. They often say if there is any way to add events from mobile phone or if they can add an event on Google Calendar, it should be added on Website Events page too on auto. So I face such feedback. Today I thought to give you a suggestion…

                • Visualize export orders and attendees better

                  It's pretty unclear where to find the export to XLS of orders and extra information the attendees filled out. You need to surf to ALL MESSAGES or ALL PAGES to see the link. Could this link be visualised more prominently under PRODUCTS or in WOOCOMMERCE?

                  • allow user to save/star events

                    Allow users to save, star or favourite events. So they can plan which events they would like to attend. This would be a huge value-add to the end user where there are a lot of events to choose from and they may want to attend a few.

                    • customize color for tribe-events-list-separator-month

                      I would like to be able to customize the color for the class : tribe-events-list-separator-month

                      Being able to change the BG color/styling would be very handy indeed for a site that doesn't use white as it's BG.

                      Thanks!

                        • cost range split into different classes

                          It would be fantastic to separate the values in the "tribe-events-cost" spans on all of the templates when there is a range--I've never seen them lumped together before with no way to separate the styling or hide one of the values via CSS.

                          For example, instead of just <span class="tribe-events-cost">$250 – $500</span>, use the following:

                          <span class="tribe-events-cost">
                          <span class="tribe-events-cost-min">$250</span>
                          <span class="tribe-events-cost-seperator"> – </span>
                          <span class="tribe-events-cost-max">$500</span>
                          </span>

                          That would open up the opportunity to show only the max or the min ticket price, style them differently, change the separator, etc.

                          Seems like there could also be an option in the UI…

                            Be able to change the colors on the tribe_events_list shortcode date graphic and event title without having to use custom CSS or other coding. Or provide a support answer for this issue with the CSS required so that we can easily grab, modify and paste into our website custom CSS.

                              I know that Event Aggregator can import from other Event Calendar sites, but it takes tinkering to find the calendar URL. This should be an easy option in the drop-down selection and would likely be very simple to add.

                              • separator as a ticket type

                                We created tickets for two related events happening on the same venue at the same time. it would be ideal to have aseparator to create distinction between ticket types.

                                The way we believe this could be used is by creating a new ticket and choosing the option "separator" and it would create a space between tickets.

                                Another use could be to create a separation between tickets for separate dates.

                                      Despite this idea being raised again and again, previous threads seem to have been closed, with the answer that Loxi provides the answer. Loxi looks like an attractive product, but it is NO SUBSTITUTE for the Events Calendar. Please tell us if embedding of The Events Calendar on other websites (or even on other sites within a WP Multisite network) is on your roadmap. Because if it's not, then I'm sure I'm not alone in thinking it's time to look for another solution which will do what we need.

                                        A shortcode that displays all tickets sold organized by ticket name.

                                        I am the webmaster for a foundation, I set up the tickets for their events and forget about it. when tickets are purchased, the payment goes to the bookkeeper and a copy of the "sold" email goes to the Executive Director.

                                        Most of these events are during the weekend and volunteers or front desk personnel will manage the front desk and check in the attendees. I am not present or always available to login into the backend, download the list, sort it and email it to them before the…

                                        • Customize Front End Attendee list by a Name field, not user name

                                          It's very difficult to customize the front end Attendee list, and there is no easy way to show a guest attending (so for sites that have private membership, all we see are the member names, not the names of the guests they're bringing to an event.). Currently there's no static field that can show the name, just the user name - I would like to see a custom name field brought in for this purpose.
