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 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.

  2. Allow manual entry of attendee information

    I'd like to be able to go into the backend and manually add an attendee to the list.

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. +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.

  6. 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...

  7. 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 :)

  8. Option to remove events not present in a reimported iCal feed

    This option would allow for events that get deleted from an iCal feed to be automatically deleted from The Events Calendar as well. So if you are importing an .ics calendar from a different site, such as Google Calendar or Outlook 365, and you delete the event there it will be deleted from the The Events Calendar on the next import.

    The iCal format is dedicated to event creation, and does not contain any data on events that have been deleted. However, with this option checked the iCal Importer could assume that any event no longer present in a given…

  9. Filter events by date range / day on single venue / organiser pages

    It would be nice to be able to filter the events in a single venue by date.
    Consider in the case of a trade show / festival / university model which may have multiple stages / theatres with multiple events occurring over several days. It would be good to display these both in a page and in a widget.

  10. Past Events Widget

    It would be awesome to have a Past Events widget to show previous events. My business uses the ECP to show all of our tournaments, and people always want to see the results, which are embedded on each event page. A widget to automatically show the previous (1-20) events would save sooooo much time! Thanks for your consideration!

  11. Customizable permalink structure for individual events

    Allow customization of the permalink structure of individual events. It would be awesome to have the ability to enable permalinks that mirror those used by other posts within Wordpress. For example, the ability to have a URL such as http://www.website.com/events/2016/06/08/event-title/. This would be a big help in avoiding conflicting URLs for repeating events.

  12. Add "Show Google Map" and "Show Google Maps Link" options to Default Content Settings Page

    I would love to see the "Show Google Map" and "Show Google Maps Link" checkboxes added under the Default Venue drop down on the Default Content setting page.

    I have a site where 99% of the events happen on location so they don't need a map to be shown, but there's 1% which happen off-site so a map is very helpful.

    It would be a great optimization of our time to be able to have it so the "Show Google Map" and/or "Show Google Maps Link" could be unchecked by default when creating an event (making this an option for…

  13. allow the option to add attendee information to the emailed tickets and admin confirmation.

    Thank you for the ability to collect Attendee Information i.e., First and Last Name of multiple tickets to the actual purchase process prior to check out. Now, how about an option to add that collected information to either the Attendee Ticket and / or the Administrator email?

  15. Certificate of Complettion

    As a professional association, we would like to provide a PDF certificate to attendees with the event name and person's name in the certificate, along with the number of CPE hours the event qualifies for. This certificate should be made available in a member area specific to the user, or emailed to the registered user, but only upon check-in. This would be tremendously helpful. Thank you.

  16. Force a Run Import on several selected Scheduled Imports

    Just like you can select several plugins to update, I would like to select several "Scheduled Imports" and force a "Run Import" on all of them at once. Since I'm often getting that red circle error saying last time of import is unknown, this would be a nice way to make sure the import has been run. And it would just be a useful option in general.

  18. Conditional fields

    We suggest to implement conditional fields in the form, so that it would be possible to show a specific dropdown list or another depending on the content of the main dropdown list

  19. Add Stripe to Community Tickets

    At the minute community members can sell tickets to their events using paypal. It would be awesome if they could do so and receive payment through Stripe Connect.

  20. Add entry field for Event Excerpt to the Community Events event submission screen to improve look of tooltip

    I am using Community Events to have non-admin people submit their events for course listings.
    The tooltip for these events look awful as the HTML is stripped out of the event description when the wptrimwords functions is run.
    I realize that this has already been addressed by not stripping the HTML from the excerpt of the event, however entry of the excerpt is not available in the event submission form in the Community Events plugin.
    On the event submission form in Community Events please add the Excerpt as a entry field.
