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. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

    Please add your votes to this idea, and add your comments to share your use cases.

    If we were to implement this, it would be based on the user login, not IP addresses.

    In the meantime, one of these snippets may be helpful:

  6. 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).

  7. WooCommerce > Show Attendee information on the checkout page

    USER STORIES & GOALS

    - I am a customer who added multiple tickets to my WooCommerce shopping cart, I would like to confirm that I filled out the data for each ticket accurately before clicking Proceed to Checkout.
    - I am a customer who realized that one of the multiple tickets in my cart has inaccurate attendee meta info. I would like to edit only that ticket, or at least remove it from my cart without removing all of the others.

    SOME POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS

    - When 2+ tickets are added to the cart, each one will appear as a separate…

  8. Allow orderby / order to be passed to Rest API endpoints

    Allow user the ability to pass through orderby / order via query to the Rest API endpoints.

    E.g.
    /wp-json/tribe/events/v1/events?order=desc
    /wp-json/tribe/events/v1/events?orderby=id
    /wp-json/tribe/events/v1/events?orderby=start_date&order=desc

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  12. Make 'Categories' available via the REST Api

    A simple list of all of the event categories in a separate url would be extremely handy!

    Exactly like the current wp-json/wp/v2/categories

  13. Connect (sync) with Microsoft Exchange

    We need a calendar plugin that will be able to connect to an exchange calendar.

    This plugin has most of the features we need in a WP calendar system minus the connection with Exchange.

    We are going to be building a 120+ multisite environment and each of those sites need to have a calendar connected to their own calendar within exchange.

    See my other suggestion for a different approach.

  14. More types and validation options for ticket fieldsets

    The ability to save "ticket fieldsets" for re-use is a great time-saver. However, I find myself wanting to have more options for field types and validation options.

    Some examples:

    1) number field type
    2) email validation (could be as simple as validating that entered string is xxx@yyy.zzz where zzz is a valid TLD)
    3) phone number validation
    4) date validation
    5) custom validation

    Thanks!

  15. suppress category import in Event Aggregator

    When importing events, the assigned category often comes with it. I believe this is other wordpress sites. I would like a way to suppress importing other calendar's categories. Just makes a mess and then I have to delete the category.

  16. Recurrence vs. repeating events

    Scenario: A singe event that spans several days at the same time. For example a 3-day seminar or class that is 9:00 am - 3:00 pm on all three days.

    As it stands now, when you setup the recurrence pattern, on the calendar it looks like three separate events on separate dates. I would be nice to see it span the dates. More so, if you set a price, on the surface it looks like the price is 'X' amount for each day and not for the entire event.

    I have seen this functionality in other premium event calendars.

  18. Add event cancellation flag and display canceled events on calendar

    We have events (events where attendees come to volunteer) that get canceled from time-to-time and we do not want to remove them completely from the calendar so that volunteers who may be planning to attend can easily see it is canceled vs. just gone completely. Right now we edit the title and put "CANCELED" at the beginning. I would rather see a cancellation flag in the event and the calendar shows a line through the event, the word "CANCELED" is automatically added to the title, etc. (perhaps allow users to choose from 2-3 display options in setup for an event…

  19. Google Rich Cards Support?

    Google is now going to be having Rich Cards, the evolution of rich snippets. It would be great to be an early adopter and have this support. There is going to be a sitemap feature to these as well with webmaster tools preview.

    Note: right not its only for recipes and movies, but im sure they'll be rolling more out.

  20. Add an opt-in checkbox for RSVP confirmation email

    We'd like to add the emails of people who RSVP to our MailChimp lists, but we would need them to opt-in first. We want to do this through the RSVP confirmation email, rather than asking for emails of all attendees, which doesn't work because then we'd be asking the registrant to subscribe friends to a list. So we would need a checkbox on the front end with an editable message, and for that to come through on the export.
