    Can the date reservation widget allow multiple people to reserve one day?

    Asked by ksteinbach on September 01, 2016 at 11:30 AM

    I'm using the date reservation for people to select dates they are taking off, but it will only allow one person to select that date at a time. Is there any way for me to up the number of people who can reserve a certain day, or can you only have one reservation per day?

     

    Thanks,

    Kate

    Unfortunately it is not possible to allow multiple people to reserve same date with Date Reservation widget. 

    If you want to allow your users to select same date instead of Date Reservation widget, you can use DateTime field or Date Picker widget

    Here is my demo form: https://form.jotform.com/62444892986978 

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Part of why I liked the reservation widget is because it forced form-users to select each day, and then once the days were selected they were presented in a list to the form recipient. Would the best way to do that be to make them just write the dates in a dynamic text field? Or is there a way for the date picker widget to list the date range?

    EDIT: For anyone reading this in the future, the way I solved this was by using the Configurable List widget. This allowed me to let users to list as many dates as necessary.

    Unfortunately it is also not possible to select multiple dates with Date Picker widget.

    I have two possible workarounds. First one is to use Dates difference widget and second is to use Configurable List widget and use only calendar option. With Configurable list widget your users would be able to dynamically add new dates. 

    How to Set Up the Configurable List Widget

    Or you can use Infinite List widget, so that your users can write the dates.

    Your response never showed up for me, but I found the configurable list on my own! Thank you.
