    How to create a booking form (With filtering)

    Asked by moronah on June 20, 2017 at 10:18 AM

    Dear Jotform team, greetings!

     

    I am trying to create 2 forms,

    1) choose city, pickup date and car type

    2) list of cars available on that city and time

     

    I've completed the 1st form, but the 2nd still working on it. What I am trying to do is:

     

    When the user select a city and pickup time, the second form filters out the cars that has been booked on that city and time!!

    It's an easy program, but I'm a little confused, plus I need a very big help with the booking feature. I can't find any booking plugins on the jotform plugin store, If you could help me with that I would be very thankful (even if it's code)

     

     

    Thank you!

    You could use the Date Reservation widget, so the chosen car can not be reserved by two people on the same day: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/date_reservation 

    When it comes to showing to the previous submissions to show the cars that have been booked on on specific data and cities. We do not have a feature that would automatically filter the data.

    It is possible to show the already submitted data by creating form reports( You can use a Grid Listing report):

    However, the user will have to manually filter the data in the Grid Listing report. 

    If you still want to embed the Grid Listing report in your second form, simply add Iframe widget: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/iframe_embed, in your form, and there paste the direct link to your report.
