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. Allow Featured Events to Display at the Top of the Event List Widget

    The display from the Event List widget looks better when there is a Featured Event with image at the top. Therefore, I would like an option to show the next Featured Event (or two or three) at top, followed by the non-featured events.

    I can almost do this now by using two Event List widgets, one above the other. The top one can be set to "limit to featured events only." If the the bottom widget could be set to "limit to non-featured events," that would do the trick.

  2. Ability to perform a CSV import from any URL

    The free CSV importer should be able to import from any publicly-accessible URL instead of having to first upload to WordPress.

    Additional functionality (worth paying for in the sense that it could be only available with an Event Aggregator license) I'd like to see is the ability to set intervals for scheduling re-importing from a CSV URL.

    One-time and scheduled CSVs via URL would be useful for getting data from other sites that aren't running The Events Calendar (which Event Aggregator can already handle) and for situations where a third party is providing the data to us, sometimes on regular…

  3. Customize Community Events Endpoints

    Would be great to have the ability to change the slugs/endpoints for the pages generated by the Community Events Plugin.
    Even simply adding a filter to the multiple $router->add_route lines and the communityRewriteSlug() in Tribe\Main.php would go a long way to helping devs better integrate Community Events into their sites.

    The most obvious use case is for sites building a User Panel: the ability to move the user's events list to my-account/events, (/add, etc), but any site that has multiple user actions that need to be managed (WooCommerce, BuddyPress/BBPress, the myriad of Directory, Classified, Buy Ads, subscription management, etc) would…

  5. Allow HTML markup in Additional Fields

    It would be very helpful to be able to use HTML markup and styling in text Additional Fields. I wanted to enter a set of links as a styled list, the result was a string of comma-separated links.

  6. Add a filter for deleted, canceled, completed orders on the attendees list

    the ability to filter out the attendees that are not going with the ones that are going by determining the order status. this would be best as a part of the text input box that is labeled "Filter by purchaser name, ticket #, order # or security code: "

  7. LearnDash Integration

    Event Espresso integrates with LearnDash such that event attendees can be added to LD courses or groups. I would love to see a similar integration.

  8. Hide remaining tickets

    I want to hide the number of remaining tickets, until a certain threshold is met.

    At the moment I do that by adding that threshold in src/views/wootickets/tickets.php in line 131
    if ( $remaining && $remaining < $threshold)

    It would be nice though, if that threshold could be somehow defined in the Wordpress backend, so that I can for example define a global threshold and can turn that functionality to hide on or off. (Like in woocommerce).
    In addition it would be nice, if for each ticket the threshold could be set individually.
    So for example, the check is then performed. …

  9. 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.

  10. Allow users to request Attendee Information using Community form (front end)

    Being able to request Additional Attendee Information is a fantastic feature we can use when creating a ticket.

    However as it stands only the admin can use this. My users who submit their events and request tickets on the front end have no way to use this feature.

    They have to contact me and I have to manually add it for them. Very time consuming and not practical for a large site.

    Request > Can this functionality be added to the community submission form on the front end.

  11. Remember sorting preference in backend

    When you sort by date in admin backend, it doesn't remember your sorting preferences. Advanced Post Manager doesn't have an option to set a default sorting order too.

    The original order (start date, descrending) is not great for me because I rarely need to work on events from 2020 and I'd much rather have ascending order.

    Option to hide events past ending date (and remembering the settings) would be a nice feature on top of that.

  12. Dropdown in the ticket area

    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.

  13. 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…

  15. Show Number of Events in Filter

    Dynamic event count for filters, similar to:
    - SHIRTS (23)
    - SHORTS (15)
    - PANTS (6)
    - HATS (31)

    These filters would change as other options are selected, as seen on Amazon and other major sites.

  16. Ability to prepend/append text to event title

    When importing events from multiple sources it would be nice to have the ability to prepend/append some text to indicate the event source and differentiate it from other imported events.

    For example, if an import feed came from "Event Organizer A", I might want to prepend "Event Organizer A--" to the event title such that the imported title appeared as "Event Organizer A--Event Title".

    Seems like this shouldn't be too difficult to implement and would be quite handy.

  17. Combine the Advanced Filter Bar with Standard Tribe Bar

    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…

  18. 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.

    edittribeticket
    readtribeticket
    deletetribeticket
    deletetribeticket
    edittribeticket
    editotherstribeticket
    delete
    otherstribeticket
    publishtribeticket
    editpublishedtribeticket
    delete
    publishedtribeticket
    deleteprivatetribeticket
    edit
    privatetribeticket
    readprivatetribe_ticket

  19. enable selection of multiple saved fieldsets

    When creating custom attendee information, enable the ability to select more than one saved fieldset. Right now there is only the option to select one, and then the ability to add saved fieldsets goes away. I'd like to be able to add multiple (such as Guest Contact & Meal Preference).

  20. 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.
