General Ideas

Got a WooCommerce idea? We have a separate forum for WooCommerce.

How can we improve WooThemes?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

  1. Custom Order Status

    It would be great if there was a way to create custom order statuses (current options do not specific enough how WE process orders) AND then It would be nice if I could automatically email customer when a new status is activated. I am a printer and I have different stages that I need to track with an order and it would be nice to inform my clients "where I am at" with their order. This would reduce phone calls or other emails from them (checking) on their order. Just being able to better organize orders would make a world…

    • Sensei - Learner management student progress overview

      Currently you can only see if students completed a course or if they are currently doing a course.

      We would like to be able to see what lesson they are currently doing.

      • print shipping label

        I cant believe the only way to ship products is to copy customers details into word then print.

        This must be a very useful amendment.
        Please

        • Multiple Address Shipping when there's just one product

          We have this plugin - http://www.woothemes.com/products/shipping-multiple-addresses/ and we'd like to allow customers to have multiple addresses on their account, and ship any order, even if its for one product, to any address they have stored on their account. The current plugin only gives them that option if they order more than one product and then they have to direct each product to that same address. If the customer only orders one product, they can't choose a saved address to send it to.

          • Per Product Shipping extension - new feature

            The way it works now it's necessary to enter rates country by country which is very time consuming. How about adding the ability to select regions? "Europe", "South America", "Asia", etc. Would be so much faster!

            • Edit Product Addons Order via Admin Menu

              If a customer has made a mistake on their Product Addons it would be handy to be able to edit their existing order via Woocommerce -> Orders for them.

              • WooCommerce Give Products

                WooCommerce Give Products.. update this plugin to search for user by the product or products they purchased. Example: Look up everyone who purchased product A and give them product B. I have to do this manually everytime I release a new product. It would also be nice if this worked with woo subscriptions.

                  • WooInvoice

                    We are all at the mercy of FreshBooks (good but expensive) or other low end invoicing solution.
                    Please guys, you are our salvation, do a theme/plugin that we can use for invoicing :)

                    • reservation

                      I hold CPR classes and I'd like to have a plug-in or Widget that allows the client to pick a course date from a displayed calendar and then pay for the course via credit card.

                      • Search for available subscriptions for a given time period

                        One feature that is missing in WooCommerce Subscriptions and it would make a much product is the possibility to search for given time period and get a list of products available to subscribe in that period.

                        This is most commonly used in hotel reservations, or similar, but with this small new feature would allow WooCommerce Subscription to be a complete subscriptions management solution for many businesses.

                        • *Onsite instruction* follow up ability in Sensei, for student/instructor interaction

                          We don't sell online courses, instead, we offer onsite instruction like kitesurfing, etc... It would be AWESOME if we could build an online curriculum / playbook that lists everything we teach out in the field, so that we could create a profile for our students wherein instructors can grade items, leave notes or mark completed, and also give students the ability to interact by leaving notes.

                          Basically a student/instructor journal based on the curriculum(s) we create, so the teaching itself is not actually done online, instead using Sensei to track and update work done in the field.

                            • Pre-orders plugin allow other products to be added to cart

                              Currently, the pre-order plugin allows for only one pre-order product to be added to the cart. If there are existing products in the cart, the pre-order plugin wipes the cart clean. It would be great to be able to order other products while pre-ordering another product.

                                • Add customer info and booking details to New Booking email notification

                                  The info sent out in the New Booking email is very limited. I had to hire a php developer to make the email show the customer info and booking details.

                                  In general, the emails should be easier to customize. Maybe similar to a Contact Form 7 setup, at least.

                                  • Option to stop taking bookings X days before an event

                                    It would be good to be able to set up bookable products so that no new bookings can be made X days before the event - for example, if I am selling holidays then people can only book the holiday up to 2 weeks before the start date.

                                    • "Products Composite" Ability to remove component pricing when using per item pricing

                                      Composite Products : when using per item pricing, it does show the prices per component in the product page. It is nice if we can turn on/off that feature to be able to show the customers the final price only and not the components.

                                      • Style the Admin Custom Fields for easier visibility

                                        Add a class function so each field can be colored for easy admin reading in the dashboard. I did this with javascript.. but could get it work by adding it the wp-admin header file.. which of courses gets erased on every update.

                                        • More options in Canvas + better integration with WooCommerce

                                          I expected a lot more from your home-grown theme Canvas, particularly when it comes to integrating with WooCommerce.

                                          Some of the features I am missing:
                                          - Translations
                                          - More options to design the product page: no image, smaller image, text next to image, all that responsive
                                          - Pre-designed main sales pages for product categories with text area and listing products that belong to it
                                          - Homepage with one-pager look-and-feel: sections with different backgrounds and full-width content, but on a shortcode basis within wordpress editor (no page-builder)
                                          - More built-in menu options: menu right to logo, sticky/transparent etc. (without having to…
