    Check in - check out widget

    Asked by aeroloop on August 17, 2014 at 04:57 PM

    Hello and thank you for your excellent work,

    I am looking for a similar widget but with the possibility to block on check out calendar, all dates previous to selected check in date, meaning that it is not possible to select a date earlier than the check in date.

    Sorry I don't think we have similar to that widget. How about using Date Reservation Widget? Check this out: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/date_reservation

    Upon testing the Check in - Check out Widget, it seems it works according to your requirements.

    Example, If I select today's date (8/18/2014) on check in, I can't select earlier this date on checkout.

    Demo: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/42287603327960?

    Have you tried check in - check out widget yet? It seems working according to your preference.

    Let us know if I have misunderstood your question. Thanks!

    This is not an answer, but a question..

    We need to loan out Laptops, and are looking for a way to do this easily.

    Google forms has a Add-in that actually does just this (called CheckitOut), but you have no way of

    saving the form to a PDF (as well as to google sheets).

    Do you know of a add-on/widget in Jot to do this?

    Or a way in Google Forms to add the ability to submit to PDF+Sheets and print out the 

    PDF once saved\submitted?

    I've checked the add-in you've mentioned and I don't think we have a widget with the same characteristics.

    The only widget that I can think of that would be similar is the Gift Registry, but this would be useful for the check-outs and you would need to manually increase the item limit when a check-in is made in order to make the laptop available to be selected in the widget.

    If I can think of another way to do this, I'll let you know here.
