Thanks Brad! The first issue should have been resolved already - but the broader point you make about adding the link at all is still valid: we'll treat that as a bug and aim to resolve it in an upcoming maintenance release.
Thank you guys so much for your feedback. Work on this is about 50% complete.
However, when we reanalyzed our priorities we realized that some of our new features, like year view, should be put on hold for now to make time for some higher impact endeavors. We are currently focused on bug fixes, architecture improvements, and polishing our current UI. While these improvements are not as “flashy” as new features like year view, they are helping a significantly greater portion of our users than this sort of new feature. Thus, we have to focus on these for a while longer. Once those tasks are complete we will have some extra time for exciting things like finishing year view.

Good question. We do not yet have a beta available.
When year view was about half way complete we had our priorities shift a little bit. We are currently focused on bug fixes, architecture improvements, and polishing our current UI. While these improvements are not as "flashy" as new features like year view, they are helping a significantly greater portion of our users than this sort of new feature. Thus, we have to focus on these for a while longer. Once those tasks are complete we will have some extra time for things like finishing year view.
I will update the status of this to more accurately convey that it is on hold for now, but work will resume as soon as we have time.

Some of our users are actually creating extra custom fields using the following plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/meta-box/
Thank you for your suggestion!
Kevin, this may be helpful to you: https://gist.github.com/cliffordp/447bc4c3a3e8c9f4c3c5c3fbc1a1a9c6
This unfortunately only gets about 1 vote every 3 months. Our more popular feature requests can easily get that in a day. Thus this is naturally lower priority.
To be up front, I doubt it will ever get implemented as a native feature. We get many new feature requests every day, more than we could ever possibly build. And so we rely on various metric to prioritize which ones will actually get built. This one scores low in our metrics.
This might already be possible with third party add-on plugin. Have you tried using any of the HTML to PDF plugins available? For instance, DK PDF claims to be able to support custom post types, and can convert their pages to PDF:
Might that work for you?
This is a great idea and we really appreciate you sharing it. It is very possibly something we could build as an extension or an enhancement we could include in of our feature updates. We will continue keeping an eye on this, and slot it as soon as we can amongst our hundreds of other great feature ideas.

Before responding I just wanted to say I really appreciate your passion for getting this feature on the roadmap. That's a lot of research and I am stoked that your shared it.
The truth is we have hundreds of feature requests we would love to implement, and this is one of them. Some of those feature requests demand many months worth of work, all for one feature request! In total we probably have enough feature ideas to keep us busy for 5-10 years, assuming we ignored every new feature request that comes in during those years.
Obviously we can't do them all, so we have to prioritize. We have many metrics that feed in to prioritizing. One of them is votes, another is forum topics. And while it's hard to quantify, we definitely try and gauge people's passion for a feature as well, passion such as yours. There are many other factors we have to consider, and after considering them all we build out roadmaps. As I stated a couple weeks back, this is something we're keeping an eye on. It gets on average about 2 votes per month. Yet we have feature requests that get 2 votes almost every day. And sadly, 6 forum topics over 4 years is also quite low, though I'm sure we could dig up a few more.
All the same votes are not our only metric. In spite of the relatively low public interest in this feature, we are genuinely hopeful that we can find time to build it. It all comes down to when. Right now our current roadmap goes out about a year, and this isn't on it. Hopefully it will sneak in some day soon.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Cheers!

While a bit of a roundabout solution, one possibility is to get the iCal export link and then run the .ics file through a converter such as https://icsconvert.appspot.com/
And here’s a code snippet specific to the Twenty Sixteen theme that may be a good starting point for your own theme’s printer-friendly styling customization: https://gist.github.com/cliffordp/edec7dff1e2d92333682759d0b8de7de
Thank you all for your feedback! This is a great idea.
We built a small extension that will hide the organizers and venues of other users from Community Events. Click the link below to for instructions on downloading and using this mini plugin.

@Jennifer Oops! It appears I forgot to press "Publish". That should now be resolved. Please let us know if you have any difficulties.
Thanks for your comments. Albert, please expound on your "critical for security" statement.

This is not ideal, but until there are more votes on this one, it is possible to export any view using the “export” button and then run the resulting .ics file through a converter such as https://icsconvert.appspot.com/
This resource may also be helpful (a starting point) for you to add custom CSS to your site, especially if running Twenty Sixteen theme: https://gist.github.com/cliffordp/edec7dff1e2d92333682759d0b8de7de
Perhaps adding a third-part plugin tying-in to the built-in WordPress comments functionality could work ?
Here a few plugins that seem promising:
Let us know if that helps.
Cool idea! Would this be for before the event, or only after?

While our tickets may not have functionality like WooCommerce's variable products or grouped products (or maybe your idea is slightly different than either of those), you might be able to benefit from this available snippet: https://gist.github.com/cliffordp/5a769159a2bf64f0b1b1dbbde243d109
Thank you very much Alexander for sharing your usecase as well. These are super valuable to us in planning features.
We appreciate everyone's feedback and will keep monitoring this request.
It is actually a combination of both.
We are looking at API updates as they are coming and it currently looks way more promising than it did initially (based on the latest API documentation: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/graph-api/reference/v2.7/event).
That being said, more votes usually bumps the priority of feature requests, so keep them coming :-)
That is a great question Jeremy. We are going to investigate their setup and see. It is entirely possible they have a special agreement with Facebook.
Right now the Facebook Graph API leaves no room for interpretation: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/graph-api/reference/v2.2/event
> You cannot create events via the Graph API.
But they have recently updated their API. And we actually have an investigation going on right now to see if that will change anything and allow us more capability. I just added looking into ticketfly as well, in case they have found a work around.
You could do this by customizing the template for the widget. This tutorial will be useful for you: https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/add-thumbnails-to-upcoming-events-list-widget/
Thank you for the feedback Denon.
You make a valid point about the snippets. We are working on improving how these integrate with our plugin while keeping in mind that including all of the snippets in our core code would create a really high number of options available, which in turn might reduce clarity.
So this is very much a balancing act.
As for the design feedback, I'll make sure I forward your comment to Jony Ive. We do share your disappointment on how he failed to make our plugin look like it was designed by Apple ;-)
As it stands, we currently do not support PolyLang as multi-language solution.
That being said, we are in the process of increasing support for multiple languages.
For now, our focus is on completing WPML support. Once that is done, we will absolutely take a look at the very popular PolyLang plugin.
Thank you for your patience and understanding on this.
Hang in there as we work our way to this and keep the votes coming!
We are planning on incorporating this feature in a future release. Thanks for your votes!
We have started working on improving the whole cancellation and change of event process.
It is too early to provide a timeline for now, but hang in there as we make this a reality!
We could not agree with you more, which is why this is now part of our roadmap.
Please know we appreciate every suggestion we receive.
Prioritizing them is no easy task and we are trying to get through the list of new feature as fast as we can.
Thank you for reaching out to us
Thanks for all your votes and comments. We'd love to be able to deliver a solution, but it's not scheduled to do so yet. Keep voting and sharing your individual / specific use cases!
This is indeed a great idea!
Could you see something like this being an integration with an email service, like MailChimp and/or Campaign Monitor? For example, sync an attendee list with a subscriber list in one of those services, then set up automation to email attendees as the event draws near?
I've added this ticket to our system for further consideration, but would love your additional feedback here as well.
I realize this is less than ideal, but I am pretty sure that, for now, you can accomplish this via a template customization. If you have not done so already, you might want to read our Themer's guide to get a sense of how that works: https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/themers-guide/

Some users have successfully made events sliders by using a third party plugin. You’ll need a slider plugin that can pull Custom Post Types.
Update: We now have a how-to for Slider Revolution and Essential Grid at https://theeventscalendar.com/knowledgebase/integrating-events-calendar-slider-revolution-essential-grid/
Thank you @Denon for taking the time to provide us with some food for thought as well as some your find of a slider plugin that works great for you.
As for the look of the calendar, you are right, we do aim at making it as customizable as can be. If you are experiencing issues with updates overwriting the changes you have made, you might want to use a Child theme and/or some template customization.
