    Date Reservation Widget: Allow multiple reservations in submission

    Asked by wernerv on November 11, 2016 at 07:35 AM

    I would like to use the Date Reservation Widget, for my photo booth company. I only want 2 reservations per day and users must see if a date is fully booked or available. They cannot select a booked date.

    I want to retrieve the data from my database using the API. I am familiar with ASP.net C# but if need be i can use other laguages.

     

    Can anyone assist me as i do not know much about this API.

     

    Many thanks

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Date Reservation widget will allow you to set a number of days a user can reserved and then blocked it automatically for the others.

    As you can see:

    Thanks for clearing that up. Sadly, the Date Reservation widget was not designed that way. The main goal of this widget is to allow users/respondents to pick a date (or more if needed) but not multiple slots per day.

    Perhaps the Appointment Slots Widget will fit your requirement better. Here's a quick demo form http://form.jotformpro.com/form/43352010062942?

    Those XX Available slots you see on the form above can be set up to only show 2 per day like so:

    This, in turn, will allow your users to pick 2 slots per day. And once someone selected a slot, it will not be available for anyone anymore.

    Unfortunately the appointment slots widget does not do calendar view :( is there no other way?

    I understand that you would like to use a widget that can handle 2 reservations per day and as well as displaying a calendar. But sadly, there's no widget yet that fits your requirement. However, we can raise a request for  the Date Reservation Widget to allow multiple reservation but we cannot provide you and exact time frame for it when it will be implemented. We will let you know in this thread about updates to this matter.
