    Hello,


    Our appointment booking form is beginning to take its final shape!

    However, I need to display the correct time-interval of booked time-slot in google calendar.

    1637017408_6192e740c8c03_Skärmbild 2021


    With the current solution of appointment slot time interval booking, how can i break out start time and end time from the data? Or at least, how can I enter the start time of the appointment with our 3-hour time length intervals?1637017526_6192e7b6cf173_


    Please let me know if I don't make any sense.

    Hi there - I'm not sure if I understood you correctly. I checked your appointment field and it seems to be correctly set up. 180min (3hrs) duration and your interval are all 3hrs.

    Do you perhaps wish to display it like 09:00-12:00 instead of just 9:00?

    @Sonnyfer
    This would be really great if we could do, and I'd like to know more about it.

    However this is not the current topic. What I'm asking is how I can put the correct time in the Google Calendar integration as seen above. I want to enter the correct start and stop time of the appointment. But I have no separate start time nor stop time. What I have is the field "Tidsbokning (tretimmarsintervaller)", that is, the appointment time-slot widget. How can i enter the start and stop time from this?

    Greetings,

    Thanks for providing additional details.

    Please note that when the Google calendar integration is created using the appointment field, the end time is automatically set based on the slot duration selected:

    i.e. End time = Start time + duration

    So, in your integration this is also duration, just it is not fully visible due to the long title:

    1637061568_619393c03291a_Screenshot 2021

    So, if I make a submission on the cloned version of your form for 1 PM slot, for instance, it will automatically create this event on the Google calendar:

    1637061595_619393db63bec_Screenshot 2021

    Please check and let us know if you have further questions.

    Thank you!

    Hello there,

    Unfortunately, it is not currently possible to display the duration of the time slot on the appointment widget this is because the duration is indicated through the time difference between the available slots. I have forwarded this to our back-end developer team. Please do note that we don't have an ETA on when would this be implemented. We will inform you via this thread once this feature becomes available.

    Looking forward to your response
