Appointment Slots widget: Can I turn the checklist options into a dropdown mode slots?Asked by labideias2 on July 21, 2016 at 08:21 PM
I would like to turn the checklist options in appointment slots into a dropdown mode and hide the number of inscriptions. How could I do this?
Unfortunately there is no means to do that using the Form Builder. It will require a complete re-designn of the widget to convert the input field into a dropdown list.
Or a completely new widget have to be created with the Dropdown list as the input field.
But perhaps an Appointment form can also be created using the Dropdown list.
If you can describe to us cleary how you wanted the appointment feature using the Dropdown list to work on your form, we will try look a solution that can work for you as well.
We will wait for your response.
Hi Jonathan! Thank you!
Well, I need to limit the how many people choice an option on dropdown slot and I would like to appear an option saying "the class is fool" when get to max number of inscriptions. So, I was using the appointment slots.
There's how the appointment slot looks like here:
And how I would like to appear (with options and limiting choices).
Unfortunately, it is not possible as mentioned by my colleague. If this is a totally different widget, then you can request it directly to our widget team. Simply navigate to https://widgets.jotform.com. Then click the "Request a widget" button:
It is quite hard to display a selection with available quantity if they are in a drop down field, that would somehow be harder for users to realize the limitation of the items because they are not displayed.
If you would like users to limit an option, then that is possible by simply setting "Max selection" in the Appointment Slots widget, that will limit your users to select an item and at the same time see the available quantities that each has have:
The Ticket Purchases widget also has this feature, you can set there min and max selections.
I hope that will suffice as a temporary workaround.
Oh, thanks! I think it's a good temporary solution!
Just one more question... Is there a way to do a two line question using appointment slots?
Unfortunately, there is currently no way for you to use the appointment slot like you specified.
You could try using a separate appointment slot for the subquestion.
Let us know if you need more information.
Thanks, Nik! Last question... Can I change the background color light green that appears when I put the mouse on one option?
Your welcome, you could do that by adding this CSS:
To the custom CSS of the Appointment slots widget.
Just change the color for your preference.
