    Hi there! I discovered the appintment widget which is sort-of what I'm looking for but not quite. Wanted to see if someone could help me out with my question. I'm trying to gather information for someone to book a location (out of two possibilities) and a time slot (with only one available out of 4). The appointment works on the scale that I can just input the date/location/time slot but that is a lot of words for a choice, I was hoping to make it more intuitive. Is this possible?

    I checked your for https://www.jotform.com/62725378336160 and I was able to understand what you were trying to achieve.

     

    I think it can be achieved better using the Unique Question using multiple fields feature instead.

    User guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/375-How-to-Have-Unique-Question-Using-Multiple-Fields

    The only downside to this method is that, it will not be immediately known to the user that the time/location slot is no longer available. The option will always be available for selection -- and the user will only know it is no longer available when they start to select it.

    I'll create a demo form also to better show you how I meant. I'll get back shortly.

    Thank you.

    Here is the demo form https://form.jotform.com/62728409268970

     

    You can only select the 2 dates available. The location/time is also limited only to those you specify.

    The unique slot is a combination of the date + location/time field. 

    So user cannot select slot on the same date + same location/time.

    Let us know if this cannot work for you.

    Thanks.
