Ideas

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

  1. Both calendars really need to sync together.
    I should not have to log into my website and callup Booking Calendar to see my schedule and how it matches up with my google calendar. I should only need to check my google calendar to confirm my schedule.

    For me, Booking Calendar is used to schedule bookings. Confirmation of my availability and schedling in both my professional life and private life is done through my personal google calendar.

  2. HI !
    Nice calendar you made. Trying to add using it for book attractions, and here questions that i have :
    1) Each attraction should have own calendar. is this possible ?
    2) Some attractions have duration about 1-4 hours, that means that each day can be few same attractions, but in different time ranges, for example : 9- 11 AM, 11 AM - 2 PM etc. Can calendar support this ?

    • Hello.

      1) Its possible with creation multiple booking resources, that are supporting in any paid versions of plugin.
      Please read the general instruction about usage of paid versions of Booking Calendar: http://wpbookingcalendar.com/faq/general-usage-instruction/

      You can create the different booking resources ( http://wpbookingcalendar.com/overview/#booking-resources ), unique calendars - your properties or services at the Booking > Resources page. And then you be able to insert booking for for specific booking resource (your properties or service) into the post or page.

      2) The ability to book for the specific times only possible in the Booking Calendar Business Small / Business Medium versions (and in higher versions for booking resources with capacity =1). Please note if you will make the booking for the specific timeslot, this timeslot become unavailable for the other visitors for that selected date in current specific calendar.

      You can configure the timeslots selections on the Booking > Settings > Fields page. Please use the "shortcode generator" on the right side of that page for the correct generation of the shortcode.

      You can use one"timerange" (timeslots) or "start time" and"end time" selections or"starttime" and "duration"of time selections shortcodes or even start time and end time entering shortcodes. Please read more about the booking form fields configuration here http://wpbookingcalendar.com/help/booking-form-fields/

      You can test the bookings for the specific time-slots in action on the live demo of Business Small version (which is configured by default for the bookings of specific time-slots) here: http://bs.wpbookingcalendar.com/ Other live demo you will need to reconfigure.

      Please note, the timeslots configuration in Booking Calendar Business Small version will be the same for any booking resources (calendars - your attractions). If you need to have the different time-slots configuration for the different booking resources, so then you need to check the Booking Calendar Business Medium or higher versions: http://wpbookingcalendar.com/overview/#custom-forms
      Kind Regards.

  3. Features Needed:
    Ability to Mandate a minimum of hours of service
    - (customer could purchase only a minimum of 2-hours or 3-hours)
    - Only hour allotments of time 1 hour, 2 hours, 3 hours and so on
    - Extra mandatory fee such as a "Travel Fee" this fee imposed for travel to a client home and back to base. This is a needed fee since service providers go to customers home.

    Based upon booking of each Service ( Load/ Unload) by the # of People, # of hours plus the Travel fee. The 2 hour minimum of service.

    • Hello.
      The ability to book for the specific times only possible in the Booking Calendar Business Small / Business Medium versions (and in higher versions for booking resources with capacity =1). Please note if you will make the booking for the specific timeslot, this timeslot become unavailable for the other visitors for that selected date in current specific calendar.

      1) So you can configure in these versions selection of start time and duration of time fields. The duration of time field can be configured for ability to select only 2, 3 or more hours...). You can configure the timeslots selections on the Booking > Settings > Fields page. Please use the "shortcode generator" on the right side of that page for the correct generation of the shortcode.

      2) Because you will have selection of time duration, and there will be possible to select only hours, so you will be book only 1 or 2 or 3 hours, etc..

      3) Such additional cost for "Travel Fee" possible to configure in the Booking Calendar Business Medium or higher versions. Please read more about this feature here http://wpbookingcalendar.com/overview/#additional-cost

      You can test the bookings for the specific time-slots in action on the live demo of Business Small version (which is configured by default for the bookings of specific time-slots) here: http://bs.wpbookingcalendar.com/
      Other live demo you will need to reconfigure.
      Kind Regards.

  4. Hello,

    i need the ical function to Sync it with airbnb and other Sides. Is it possibile to create?

    Kind Regards.

    • Hello.
      Unfortunately, Booking Calendar does not support importing/exporting of the ical/ics, yet.
      Plugin does not support synchronize with booking.com, Airbnb, Homeaway, Tripadvisor or VRBO.

      These features exist in out TODO list and have high priority. Its will be available in some close major updates of plugin.
      But I can not say about the exact day of implementation of these features.

      Booking Calendar support import of events from Google Calendar.
      And paid versions of plugin support of export bookings to the CSV files
      Kind Regards.

      • Hello,

        do you have any ideas how i can synchronize these sites with your plugin.

        If so i would like to buy it.

        Kind Regards

        • Hello.
          This feature exist in our TODO list, and it will be available in some future updates of plugin. Currently its does not available. Sorry.
          Kind Regards.

  5. Feature Request:
    Ability to use "bookingselect" option on a specific day and hide the calendar.

    I like to make a page for each of our events. Each event has a specific date. To ask the user to open the page, select the resource, then select the date of the event is redundant.

    [bookingselect selected_date"21.05.2017 form_type='standard' type='1,2,3,4,5' first_option_title='Select']

    That's what I need.

  6. Hello,

    I'd like to request a shortcode that can be inserted into a page that will show all of the booked events for one day (today) and include all the data and details, and not just the names of the users who booked the timslots. It looks like right now you can only show a calendar timeline that has timeslots and names in them. Thank you.

    • Hello.
      In TimeLine, you can activate of showing booking details, when you clicked on specific booking pipeline.
      You can activate this option "Booking details in popover" at Booking > Settings General page in "Booking Listing" section.
      Kind Regards.

      • Thanks for the quick answer, this option helps. But the user would like to print out the schedule for today with the booking details shown for each booking, and the details don't print when they only appear in a popover.

        • Hello.
          Yes, currently its does not possible to print it from front-end side. Its only possible to print from admin panel at booking listing page.
          Kind Regards.

  7. Hi

    I'm using the WP Booking Calendar on a small site for my (extended) family to organize the reservation of our holiday home.

    As we don't rent it out publicly and access to the site is protected, I would like to show information on booked entries in the calendar, so people know who has booked a specific time block.

    For this I currently I show both the booking form and time line below.
    Would be great if there were an option to show booking information (popover) directly in the calendar of the booking form, similar to the "Booking details in popover" for the timeline.

    • Hello.
      Its possible to make a little trick (in Booking Calendar Business Small and higher versions) to show in the "mouse over tooltip" over specific booked timeslot (please note the booking must be made for the specific timeslot, and not the full date), the Name of the person, who made the booking.

      Example:

      11:00 - 12:00  Jon Mack

      But please note this feature can impact to the performance, and we do not recommend to activate it.

      If you are still want to activate it,so please open this file: ../{Booking Calendar Folder}/lib/wpbc-constants.php find this code:

      if (!defined('WP_BK_SHOW_INFO_IN_FORM'))    define('WP_BK_SHOW_INFO_IN_FORM',  false );                 // This feature can impactto theperformace

      and replace to this code:

      if (!defined('WP_BK_SHOW_INFO_IN_FORM'))    define('WP_BK_SHOW_INFO_IN_FORM', true);

      Kind Regards.
