    Unfortunately, it is not possible to block slots on the Date Picker calendar. You can create a simpler booking form with a DateTime picker. 

    You can also create a Calendar or Grid report where the filled dates can be shown, and then link to that report from the form so the users can see which dates are available and choose those dates from the date picker pop-up.

    If you need any help with any of the steps let me know and I will provide more details.

    I am trying to help a school create an online booking system for parent-teacher interviews.

    They are scheduled to occur after school, in 20 minute slots over one week. I have tried to set up a sample form but when I submit multiple times on the one day, the calendar report appears to replace the name of the submitted booking with the last person who booked an interview on that day. It doesn't seem to display more than one event on a day.

    Hi Charlie,

    Apparently, the calendar report does display only one event per day. I apologize for this inconvenience but that's just how it was made to work.

    Try using an html table report instead. An HTML table report has a function to sort the submission entries by the date selected by the people who have submitted the form. See screenshots below for example.

    Hope this post was of any help to you. Please let us know if you have further questions.

    Sonu: To add a credit card payment integration to your online booking form simply add one of the integrations available under Payment Tools on the form builder.

    Hi, I'm very interested in the booking form you're taking about. I have a different approach to it. I'm starting a Villa inquiry webpage. I would like the client to be able to inquire dates and for jotform to show a price for the number of nights they're asking for.Prices may vary by season.After I review the dates and check that they are actually available, I would like to fill a form with the data of the client and some how send the client an email that would show information and the total cost of the booking with an option to pay.Is this possible?I'm trying to automate the process as much as possible.Thanks for your time.Nicolas
