    Help with hotel booking form

    Asked by RichBitch on June 12, 2016 at 05:13 PM

    Hi, I have a small hotel, with 4 double rooms and 2 single rooms.  Is there any way I can make a form where the user selects a date and it displays what rooms are available on that date, and once a room is booked for a particular date, that it then shows as unavailable.  Hope that makes sense.  Thanks

    That should be possible with a widget such as:

    Date Reservation

    Appointment Slots

    I do however suggest looking at the Booking form templates: https://www.jotform.com/form-templates/category/booking

    There are over 200 of them for you to see if any does what you would like and then start from the same - instead of building the form from scratch.

    You can see the following guide on using the same: How to Use the Form Templates

    Of course, we are here for any questions that you might have, so just let us know.

    Thank you but I am confused.  Do I need to use both widgets (Date Reservation & Appointment Slots) together.  How do I link them.  I want people to select a date, and it to show if rooms are available on that date.  I can see no way of doing that with the widgets you mention.  Thanks

    Hello RichBitch,

    Unfortunately, on that part which to check the availability of one room on a certain date is something that we do not have yet.
