How can I create a form with available slots?

    Hello!

    We offer field trips to school and other groups and I was wondering if JotForm offered any form options that might allow a group to schedule for a tour online? The thing I didn't see when I quickly looked through templates available was if the forms would allow you to mark certain times as unavailable and/or take them away if others took them first. In other words, we can only host one group at a time. So if Group A books for Monday at 10am, are there any capabilities from JotForm that would remove it as an option so that when Group B goes to book, the next available time showing on that day would be 11:30am?

    Thanks for your help!

    Our templates are created with the basic date field so there might be someone choosing the same date and time. However, you may use the appointment slots widget that will allow you to disable the options when the available slots number is reached. 

    Here's the link to the widget: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/appointment_slots 

    In case that you need to set the slot available again you will need to increase the number on the widget settings.

    I hope this helps.
