    Could you please provide us more details of your concern? At that time, we can assist more properly. If I understand your question correctly, you want to disable the dates if any person searches those dates before. If it is yes, you can use the Appointment Slots widget and you can enter the dates and time manually as you see below:

     If you have any question or issues, please do not hesitate contacting us. We will be glad to assist you.

    hi, so im using this multigrid. But  after filling out the chosen fields the fields remain on booked. I want that for every use, every person can choose any time.


    No booked field should appear. The grid is there that People can show me when they have time slots for classes so i can make a plan based on all the data collected. 

    Maybe there is another possibility? (that would even include a way so the can set preferences for time slots?)

    Regards , Sam

    Hello Sam, I'm currently fiddling around with the Multiselect Grid Widget, Reservation Widget, and Conditions to see if there's something that will allow you to achieve your end goal.

    Please allow me some time and I'll get back to you with my findings (successful or not) :)

    All right, I've thoroughly tested the widgets but failed to find a way to allow your respondents to pick a timeslot on the Multiselect Grid widget multiple times.

    The main goal of this widget is to allow selection only once since this is mainly used for reservations. And with a cell already selected (e.g. a timeslot already chosen), it's just logical to always show it as booked/selected so other users won't mistakenly book the same slot (thus, the idea behind a reservation).

    Since your goal is to allow your respondents to select a timeslot multiple times, regardless if it's already taken, as a workaround, please try the Appointment Slots widget instead. This will allow you more flexibility to adjust the limit (from 1 to unlimited) slots if needed.

    Give it a spin and in case you stumble upon an issue along the way, don't hesitate to open a new thread so we can assist you.
