    How can I build a simple booking system

    Asked by corporatevents on March 03, 2017 at 04:11 AM

    Hi Jotform team,

    I don't know how to make it and if this is possible but it would be so great.

    I need to have a form with a calendar of events (event title, date, time, duration, number of places still available)

    + the usual profil of the participant (name, email, date of the event, title of the event)

    My difficulty is to have a system where the people, before they make there reservation, they can see in real time how many places is still available for a specific event, do you think it is possible or do I need to use a widget or something like that?

    I cross my fingers and hope you will be able to help me.

    Thanks in advance

    This is somewhat possible using any of the following widgets:

    https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/date_reservation 

    https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/appointment_slots 

    https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/inventory 

     

    Those widgets will allow your users to reserve an item or date. An example would be the Appointment Slots widget, each item can have a number of available slots, if a user selects one and make a submission, then the available slots will decrease. 

    To add a widget, simply navigate to the "Widget" tab and search for the widget you would like to add. After that, simply drag and drop it on your form. 

     

    I hope that helps.
