    Kindly provide guidance on how to create different options in the appointment element for different times on different days/dates. I have fluctuating appointments available that change Saturday to Saturday but I need to be able to book them weeks out and it only lets me do repeating times exactly the same for the weekday without the ability to change.


    If this is not possible in Appointment, then please advise of another widget that has this capability, it is vital to our business. Once we are able to do this we would like to explore using the jotform app with our clients.


    Thank you.

    Hi,

    Please check this widget (https://www.jotform.com/widgets/date-reservation) and see if that would work for you.

    Please try it and let us know how it goes. Thank you!

    Thank you for your response but this will not work for us as we need to offer several time specific appointments in a single day that change day to day week to week, with bookings made in advance. What else might jotform have to suit our needs?

    Hello,

    I think the Appointment field is the best option you can use. Here's a simple demo form with multiple Appointment fields but it will only appear based on the user's answer: https://form.jotform.com/213256061925049

    With that workaround, you can customize multiple appointment fields and set the time you want and day. If that would work for you, please let us know if you need help configuring it the way you want.

    Here's an example setting if you want to reserve a timeslot for one submission only:

    If I misunderstood your question, please share a sample website with a calendar that you want to copy so we can check if that is possible here in Jotform. We'll wait for your response.

    Will this allow me to set different times for the same day of the week? I need to offer an appointment this Saturday 12/4 at 10 and 12, and 1:30 and next saturday 12/11 at 10:30 and 11:30 and 3. I need to have them both available for signup immediately without offering the same times for both saturdays.


    That is what I need to do, can this be done in jotform?

    Hello,

    Yes, you can edit the Appointment field whenever you want. You can set the available day or available time. Here's a screencast updating the Appointment field to Weekends only and changing the available timeslot:

    If I misunderstood your reply, please let us know. Do you have any example websites on what you want to achieve so we can check it and see if we have a widget or feature that can do that?

    We'll wait for your response.

    Thank you but I do understand that I can change the appointment field anytime I want, but I need both options for the different saturday dates available for signup now at the same time live asap without having to change the times after the first date passes. Can different times for the same day of the week be available for sign up that is what I need answered, thank you.
