    If you would like you and the respondents of your form to be notified via email when the form is successfully submitted, then I suggest you create an email notification and email autoresponder in your form.

    With regards to showing room availability, there is a workaround where respondents will not be allowed to select the same room on the same date if it was previously selected by other respondents.

    You can use a drop-down field to show the available rooms you offer and a date field where respondents can select the date(s) they want to book. Pass the value of those fields into another field following this guide — Conditional-Logic-Inserts-Text-Calculation-Into-A-Field

    Then, use that other field as a unique question to prevent duplicate submissions with the same value or booking information— How-to-Have-Unique-Question-Using-Multiple-Fields

    And as for collecting payment, you can use any of our available payment integrations — Mastering-Payment-Form-Integrations-with-JotForm

     

    I hope this helps. If you have other questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us again anytime.
