    You may use an appointment field on the form, setup Group attendee function, and max of 1 attendee per time slot:

    Thank you for your reply, but I can use the appointment field... and I understand how can I setup for one or group appointment . Unfortunatelly if you can appointment e.g. today 10:00 am, after I also make appointment for today 10:00 am. So I want use for car rental and I have only 1 mercedes car you can make appointment for mercedes car and I also make appointment for same mercedes car, same time. So this is my problem ... do you have any suggestions?

    Thank you!

    If you set up the appointment field as shown in my screenshot above with Max. attendee per time slot as 1, then for each time slot, only one selection can be done.

    Here is an example:

    1612315058_6019f9b2287c6_screencas030220

    As you can see, I selected the 10 AM slot the first time and for the second time, that slot was not available (grayed out) for selection.

    Do try this approach and let us know.

    Hello,

    I tested the your information. I can see your solution works, but only If I want to book for 1 or more days. ...and If I want to book for less time e.g. 1 hour dosn't work well ( i make more book for same time ). This isn't problem, becaouse I need rent a car.

    Thank you for your help!

    Greetings.

    If you need to allow users to select the whole day, and to make those dates unavailable for others, you can use the Date Reservation widget. This will display a calendar in your form, and allow your users to select the required days:

    Next user will see this field as disabled, and they won't be able to select it:
