    Multi day booking with different finish times

    Asked by comberstreet on February 22, 2017 at 07:46 PM

    Hi all,

    I need a simpler method to allow clients to make multi-day bookings that may or may not have different finishing times. Sometimes I have an exhibition opening with an opening and then another daytime gathering within the booking period.

    I currently ask for duration of hire (calendar select, start date to finish date), bump in/out time, business hours open/close. It's at this point that I am stuck on either asking the user if their date is over one day long or if there is a way to detect it from the duration of date selection on the calendar. From there I guess I can give them another calendar if they answer "yes" to an 'event within event' question.

    Is there another way to do this?

    I see you already using the Configurable list widget, I presume this would already suffice if you are asking for a specific date range and time range. 

    We have a widget that allows you to select date range but not including time, here it is: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/date_reservation. Another similar widget is this one: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/check_in_check_out

    The problem I'm seeing is that if you allow multiple dates with the option to have different times on each date, then one widget would not suffice, separate the date and time fields might be required to allow possible options.

    Perhaps what's missing in your Configurable list widgets would be a "text box" that would describe the event.


    You can add text placeholders to guide your users.

    I hope that helps.
