add event image to event webpart card view
include thumbnail of image in events widget card view
users for my events have fed back they did not open the events as it was just a date and skipped straight past it.
It is here important to be able to add images / thumbnail to the event webpart card view to ensure engaging UX.
Ideally to be able to define two seperate images for events 1). for the webpart card view, and 2). the image banner when viewing / opening the event (already functionality).
For crying out loud, please add a photo. This is a common component for any web building platform. The current web part is bland and vanishes on the page.
Obviously not critical, but would be a welcomed enhancement. Why give a user the ability to add an image to the event page, but then display a plain event tile in the web part? Even adding the ability to use a solid fill color would be a significant improvement.
Please add the option to use an image on the Event card.

I've been asked about this twice in the past week.
The Events web part is very plain.
Being able to either specify the colour or maybe control the colour from the category would be brilliant.
Can you combine the related ideas on this topic into this item?
After 2 Years: This is poor! Please implement the Image Preview in WebParts CardView
absolutely essential feature and highly required
Any update on this? We'd like to implement for our staff birthdays!
Why on earth did Microsoft provide the facility to add an image to events, then not use that as a thumbnail rollup image for the Events Web part? This seems like it would replicate other functionality in SharePoint almost exactly and is the expected behaviour for users. Should be a quick win and helps easily identify relevant events.

Yes please! It's especially obvious when you include news and events in a highlighted content web part.
Yes, lots of white space here. Would like to have the option to include the images to make it more eye catching.
Yes! The Event webpart is really dull. I assumed the webpart would function that way and was surprised to find out it didn't. Seems like a no-brainer.

Agree this is required :-)
