    Independent Contractor Availability Form

    Asked by 3bridges on September 04, 2014 at 12:27 PM

    I have been looking for a solution to my scheduling issues of keeping track of independent contractor's availability.  I have searched through the templates several times and I'm a bit surprised that I can't find anything helpful.  Do you have any suggestions on how I can go about creating a simple calendar that I can embed into our "contractor" portal so they can enter in their availability?  Is there a template that I'm just not finding?  Your help is greatly appreciated!

    Hi 3bridges,

    I'm not really sure if this is what you're looking for but there's a Jotform app called Zapier Integration. This app will let you create a google calendar event from Jotform submission.


    I hope this is the solution you are looking for.

    Hello aadrinmusic,

    Great suggestion.  I can just create a new Google Calendar page called "Availability" and use a Jotform template embedded on my site so the contractors can enter in their availability.  One question, do you know of any "Availability" templates?  I've tried to create one but it isn't ideal.  Thanks for the suggestion!

    Glad to hear that.

    With regards to availability templates, here's one but I'm really not sure if this is ideal for you:

    In addition to the suggested template. You might probably be looking for a form like this:  http://form.myjotform.com/form/41531697763564

    Such form was made using one of the 2 widgets (Appointment Slots)


    This widget is also a good one:

    Thank you both for the suggestions.  They have given me some good ideas and I'll do my best to create something and add the link when I finish.  Hope it can help someone else down the road :)
