    Dear all

    we use jotform to recieve booking and payment on our events.

    I would like to add an early booking feature, i.e. a reduced rate for individuals booking a fortnight before the event.

    Is this possible to be set up so that the amount field gets updated outmatically on a certain date?

    or do i have to include 2 payments methods, with clear instruction...

    it would be great if we could have an automated price swap :)

    Many thanks, Resi

    Hi Resi,

    Perhaps you can use a coupon code instead.

    (See this guide: How-To-Add-Coupon-Code-in-the-Payment-Form)

     

    You can take this steps to create my idea of a form

    1. Add a Date/Time field on the form with a value of default date(today).

    2. Add an Autoresponder E-mail where the secret coupon code will be given to early bookers

    3. Use condition logic to create rules about the date of the event using the Date/Time field value.

    Example condition:

    IF Date < Event Date THEN

    SEND {Autoresponder E-mail}

    Using the coupon code, the early booker can now go back to the form and supply the coupon to avail the early booking discount.

    Tell us your feedback.

    This is not doable on the form builder, hence my suggested alternative.

    I will also create a demo form, so you can test what I was suggesting.

    Thanks.
