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. 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: "

  2. 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. …

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Add a SMS Text messaging option as reminder for events

    Having an email and SMS reminder option for events would be great for teams or groups.

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. 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

  13. 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).

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. 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…

  17. 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 item in the…

  18. Date Picker for Recurring Events as an option

    I am part of a nationwide franchise that has a co-op website for public events. There's a feature that we on on THAT calendar that is INCREDIBLE for recurring events as well as being very flexible for custom date rules.

    We can, much like this one, select various rules such as every 1st Wednesday of the month, or every other Tuesday, etc.

    However, when we edit an event, date picker calendars will pop up with every day/date the event is scheduled for. We can simply click on a date to remove ONE or MORE of the current scheduled events, AND…

  19. 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!

  20. 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
