    I need an appoitments slot widget by the month

    Asked by proapc on June 11, 2017 at 12:03 PM

    There is an appointment widget that does a countdown from Monday thru Sunday but I need a yearly appointment slot widget for reservations on a shuttle service.

    See http://SunValleyBoise.com

    As people reserve for a particular date, There needs to be an "seats available" countdown.

    I see the problem you have here. The widget is obviously not suitable for your needs.

    But you have plenty of choices of booking form templates here:

    Can you develop a simply widget with appointments available by date? Categorize it by year?

    We can add a feature request ticket to our system. However, the developers are implementing the features based on their priorities and popularity of the requests. This is not likely that a widget will be developed in the nearest time.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I can get along without the feature but it would sure make life easier. I open for business in July and this is a prototype for hundreds of other small companies who are beginning to provide UBER style services with shuttles around the country. If and when this widget is developed, I'm sure this will open the door to a ton of new customers for JotForm. Next week I'm releasing an article about my program to several online groups who cater to the independent ride share industry. When someone books a ride with the form, I get notified within about 15 seconds by text and I can turn around and assign a driver for the customer in another 10 seconds. Let me know if they can develop or modify the appointment widget. If I can get it done on my end, who do I submit it to to get in added?

    I will be glad to submit a feature request on your behalf to our developers. However, I just would like to ask for clarification of what feature are you looking for exactly. Because from what I only understand, you would like to have a way to indicate which year you would like to show in the widget. Then, set the number of available appointments for each day (Monday to Sunday) and this will go for all the days in a year set in the widget.

    With regards to creating a widget, I suggest you visit our Developers website.

    Yes, thank you. The appointment widget currently available works for a Monday thru Sunday list. My service enables a customer to go in an book a seat on the shuttle up to a year in advance. Knowing this, I need to have a widget that only allows 16 seats booked in any day of the year. Just like the airlines, they have a number of available seats and can track when there are only a few seats left. With a widget that can limit seats booked on any given day to 16, I can prevent over booking without having to manually download the reports and arrange the data in a spreadsheet by date.

    Thank you for providing us with more clearer details of the feature you need within the Appointment widget.

    I will submit a feature request ticket to our dev team using this discussion thread.

    We will notify you here for any news/updates on the status of this feature.
