Ideas

Please, feel free to propose new ideas or new features, which you desire to see in future releases of Booking Calendar Plugin.

  1. Coupon:
    Would be really helpful if the coupon settings would have an additional feature where it is only applied be use be use for a specific time slot/ date range
    We want to offer discounts for the summer months only and currently this is not possible.

  2. Two features I'm not sure are available and would be great to have: The exclusion of resources from the front-end, simply reverting all bookings to "Default" or no resources. Secondly, it would be good to display a calendar which has a restricted booking period. For example, bookings can only be made between 04-Apr-16 and 24-Apr-16, only on days marked as available. Therefore marking days Monday-Friday unavailable, bookings could only be made on Saturdays and Sundays between the previous dates.

  3. Hello , we are currently enjoying the nice calendar view on the front end, however the backend for the administrator is only available in line view , we need the calendar in the backend to be like the front end ( like a traditional printed calendar )

    2 months across and 6 months down.

    I would have uploaded a picture but I cannot find this option.

    Thanks in Advance.

    • Hello.

      If you want to show at the Booking > "Add booking" page in admin panel calendar with 12 visible months, then please try to make this fix:

      Please open this file ../{Booking Calendar Folder}/lib/wpdev-booking-class.php

      then find this code:

      do_action('wpdev_bk_add_form',$bk_type, get_bk_option( 'booking_client_cal_count'));

      and replace it to this code:

              //do_action('wpdev_bk_add_form',$bk_type, get_bk_option( 'booking_client_cal_count'));       
              make_bk_action( 'wpdevbk_add_form', $bk_type , 12, 1, 'standard' , '', false, '{calendar months_num_in_row=2 width=100% cell_height=35px}'  );
      

      In the second line 3rd parameter, is mean to show visible 12 months, and in last parameter, this value months_num_in_row=2
      is meaning that will be show 2 months in a row.

      Kind Regards.

  4. Thanks for this great plugin. Here are my ideas for improvements that would work well in our business:

    - Payment: option to choose to show payment form immediately after submitting booking form, or only afterwards by clicking on payment link in email. In our business, we want customers to have some time to decide if they are going to book (by paying the deposit) or not.
    - Emails: adding more custom emails, for example with check-in information, or ask for a review after their stay.
    - Coupons: if there is a discount percentage, it is calculated on the total cost, but it would be nice if it could also be calculated on the original cost (not on the additional costs)
    - Same for additional costs that are a percentage: ability to choose (maybe by checking a checkbox) if it is a percentage of total cost or original cost.
    - Automatically copy certain marked fields to the remarks field for admin, like now the cost, deposit, date are automatically copied. If cost is changed, also copy the new cost automatically to the remarks field.
    - Extra field for admin to see the amount that has already been paid.
    - Save custom filters in admin bookings list/calendar based on tags (we have three types of booking resources, it would be nice to be able to see a filtered list of each type)
    - Multilingual site: show only default admin language in bookings list/calendar, otherwise resource names can be very long if you have more languages, which makes the list and especially the calendar less readable. For example: "Name in Dutch[lang=fr_FR]Name in French[lang=en_US]Name in English[lang=de_DE]Name in German"

  5. Hi,

    I love this plugin but for one thing.

    My users are booking an extra night because they click on the departure date which actually books the night of the day they are leaving.

    This is counter intuitive.

    What would be useful is that the departure date shows half the day to indicate that this is the morning of departure.

    Holiday lettings does this quite well with a triangular half for the departure date which allows someone to book the same day for an arrival.

    I hope this makes sense to you. If you need clarification please do not hesitate to contact me. I'd be happy to purchase the paid upgrade if this facility was included.

    Best regards,

    Ruan
