    It worked for me.

    Please try to recreate your widget, delete it and add it again. See if that makes a difference.

    Thanks!

    That was completely un-helpful. What worked for you? Did you have someone make an appointment on my form and then it showed it to be unavailable?
    Did you see how long my widget was? It took a long time to enter all of those dates and times. Surely you can help me fix this without creating an hour of work.
    Thanks!

    Most of the time when a widget fails, it its not necessary to create all the items, just with a couple is enough to reproduce the issue.

    I have cloned your form to test with all the dates you have entered, and it is working fine: https://form.jotform.com/63184915404961 

    Please try updating your widget to fix the problem:

    And for those 6 submissions you already received, put a zero value between the curly brackets to have those dates not available.

    Let us know if you need more help.

    Unfortunately, we do not have phone support. Please try making a clone version: https://www.jotform.com/help/27-How-to-clone-an-existing-form-from-your-account 

    Then, when you update, all the settings reset, so all dates will be available, that's why it is needed to manually put a zero value for those dates that were already taken, so they will be updated as unavailable already, example:
