    Restrict overlapping date/time?

    Asked by Chris  on March 06, 2014 at 05:03 PM

    Hello, we'd like to use forms to let people reserve timeslots in our company conference room. Is there any way to restrict people from choosing overlapping times in a form? Or restrict the form submission if it detects an overlapping time?

    Hello Chris,

    Unfortunately, there is not.

    However, you could prevent the same person from filling the form over again - here's the guide that will help you achieve that.

    I have submitted a feature request that will prevent double bookings on a form using the date-time field.

    This thread will be updated when deliberated.

    I think the best solution for this would be to make a conference room time slot selection widget. I have added it to our planned form widgets list. We will update you when we have such a widget available.
