    How to set the limit to select time slot by only one user?

    Asked by bykurtsneddon on June 19, 2017 at 08:16 PM


    I want to offer appointment times for one day and have customers select which time they would like, possibly with a second preference. However, is it possible to then only offer available times (i.e. disallow times that previous form-fillers have selected) to subsequent customers?

    Does that make sense?

    Hello bykurtsneddon,

    Yes it is possible to achieve your requirement. I would suggest you to please take a look at our "Gift Registry" & "Ticket Purchases" widget and see if that fits into your requirement. Here are the steps I would suggest you to follow:

    #1. Add a date field or "Dropdown / CheckBox" question to list the date / day on which users can select the time. 

    #2. For each date / day, I would suggest you to please add one "Gift Registry" & "Ticket Purchases" widget to list all the available times. 

    #3. Add conditions in your form to show / hide appropriate "Gift Registry" & "Ticket Purchases" widget based on the selected date / day. 

    Hope this helps.

    Do try it out and get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
