    A booking calendar with time frame options?

    Asked by georgeb on June 01, 2015 at 09:21 AM

    Hi, 

    Does anyone of a booking calendar with time frame option that I could use in conjunction with jotform? 

    So when a customer is filling out the request for a quote, they can choose the date and time frame that they would like for us to come out?  Then if it gets canceled or reschedule, I can free up that slot or move it to another one easily?  

    I was thinking of using Google calendar since I use it now, but not sure how I would be able to put that on the form, so customers could see available days and time frames and choose one?

    Hi georgeb,

     

    Thanks for contacting us.

     

    If I understood your question correctly, you want a calendar (possibly a Google Calendar) displayed in your form where users can choose and click a date on that calendar for booking. Unfortunately, this is a feature that is not yet available in JotForm. However, I can suggest you 2 workarounds:

     

    1. You may create a DateTime field in your form and when user submits your form, you send the data to your Google Calendar using POST data in the Thank You page as done in this thread. You can them embed your Google Calendar in your form as was done in this thread.

     

    2. Another option is to add a DateTime field in your form where users can select a date. Then create a Calendar Report where users can view available dates. Please see more details of this method here.

     

    If you need further assistance, do let us know.

     

    Regards.
