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. Adding multiple categories & tags

    Now we can pick one category when using the aggregator, but in our calendar it's possible that a certain event belongs in more categories.
    This means I still have to do this manually to complete the event. Also I miss the option to activate tags. For this the same as with the categories it's handy when we could fill out more then one tag.

  2. Beaver Builder Compatibility - Full Integration So Everything Works

    Beaver Builder's Page Builder is hugely popular with over 275K downloads. Right now the widget don't work completely in the page builder. Some functionality is missing and there are bugs.

    It would be grand of there could be a concerted effort to make sure Event Calendar is fully compatible with Beaver Builder.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. Option to automatically list events near to user

    The Map View page ordinarily shows a list of upcoming events, until a user input a location into the "Near/Location" field. I would like to automatically fillout the location field for the user when they hit the default map view page. Using geocoding of the visitors IP, or perhaps via a location request, we can retrieve the users location to fillout this field. You could toggle this option on/off in the settings area.

  11. Please allow passbook support

    It would be great if the QR tickets which are offered in he ticket pro plugin could be supported by passbook. It's so convenient. Most of my mobile ticket purchasers are on iPhone so it would be great to offer this function and the android equivalent.

  12. Import Google Calendar attached images as event image

    I am quite surprised this feature has not been included in a prior iCal Importer update or the release of Event Aggregator.

    Can Event Aggregator import the attached image in Google Calendar and use it as the event image for Wordpress? I know this can be done as some other platforms already do this.

    I have hundreds of events on my calendar, and adding an image to every single one is not an option.

    Thank you!

  13. Do not include deleted tickets or cancelled orders in participant list sold units.

    Right now, if you look at the number of ticket sold in the participant list, it include tickets that were sold then cancelled, or completely deleted orders. I suggest that this number only includes existing participant or that another item is created to see the number of expected attendees and active tickets sold.

    Thank you all for your continued feedback here. This is very much something we are interested in refining. We are going to rope in a strategist to properly account for the various workflows of as many people as we can, and try to find a slick method and improved method for reporting this info to everyone. Until then please keep voting, it helps us prioritize.

    Thanks again!

  14. Add a datepicker for birth dates (or any other dates) to tickets

    As we offer many events for kids (e.g. ski lessons) it is mandatory to receive the kid's birth date. If we just add a text field, we get different date formats and can't use them for further planing in Excel.

  15. Add "Frequency" to bulk actions for scheduled imports

    The ability to select multiple scheduled imports and switch the frequency (daily, hourly, weekly, etc) would be great. I often need to update several imports at a time depending on seasons and going one-by-one is rather tedious.

  16. +Export Events button on category page to export category events only

    At the moment, the +Export Events button on a category page adds every single event (on the whole calendar) to your diary (which is a disaster). Would be great if the +Export Events button on category pages only exported the events listed in that category.

  18. different fees for different organizers

    Hey guys! Vote on this feature that would allow you to choose different fees for different organizers.

    For example, on events over 500 tickets, our fees are 4.9%+ $3. But for small events it would be 3.9% +$1

    Let's make this happen!

  19. List of available shortcodes on the back-end at plugin settings.

    Not sure if I am just not seeing it, but if it's not there, how about adding your list of available shortcodes to the Help or Settings section on the back-end of the site? It's mildly irritating to have to go to your website every time, then run a search for shortcodes, then find the correct post in order to get the correct shortcode...

  20. Option to show EXCERPT on Upcoming events widget

    Would be great if in the PRO version, the events list widget could have the option to show the excerpt - a check box just like for the Price, Venue, City, Address, etc. Thanks :)
