Ideas

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

  1. Idea:

    Make it so that you can make available fixed (by the admin) times for individual days of a single resource.

    E.g, Resource has 8:30AM - 2:00PM on 17th June. Same Resource has 2:00PM - 6:00PM available on 19th June. Customer has no choice of times, these are fixed times set by the admin and there for the information of the customer only.

    If there is any way to achieve this effect in the current version please let me know. If not it is my idea for an update.
    Thank you!

  2. Idea:

    I'm not sure if this can be done already. If it is please let me know how to do it!
    Basically, I'm looking for a "join reservation" feature. For example, one user registered for a resource at a particular time slot with only 5 visitors. However, the resource can take up to 8 visitors at a time, so that leaves space for 3 more visitors. If another user looks to reserve at the same time, they can simply click on the calendar and join that reservation if that user is reserving 3 or less visitors.

    Thank you!

    • Hello.

      Its does not possible to join exist bookings as in your decription, but its possible to create new booking for rest of available spaces.

      If you need to make the specific number of bookings per days, then you need to check the Booking Calendar Business Large version, where is possible to make several reservations per specific FULL date(s) by visitors (not time slots). Please read more about it here https://wpbookingcalendar.com/overview/#capacity

      You can test it in the live demo here https://bl.wpbookingcalendar.com/
      Watch video about this feature here https://wpbookingcalendar.com/help/availability-capacity-video-overview/

      At this version possible to set capacity of the booking resource, so date(s) in calendar will be available until number of reservations is less then capacity of the booking resource. But its possible to make booking only for FULL date, not a time slots (time slots in this version only saved as data into database, but do not apply to availability logic).
      Highly recommend, to check this article about configuration of capacity and availability for booking resources: https://wpbookingcalendar.com/faq/capacity-concept/

      Kind Regards.

      • Thank you for the prompt reply. I did purchase the business large version hoping this feature would be available since it's very important to combine and join existing reservations for my application. Will you consider adding this feature?

        • Hello.
          Please check my previous comment about exist functionality. I will add this item to todo list. But I do not know when it’s will be implemented. Sorry.
          Kind Regards.

  3. There should be a new feature to add a new email.

    right now there are only eight types of emails that can be sent.

  4. Hi

    Does this plugin support goals in Google Analytics or via Tag Manager Conversion Tracking?

    Thanks

  5. Would like the ability to show both available and unavailable resources in the Search results.

    • Hello.
      The purpose of search form to show only available booking resources for specific booking resources. Currently it’s does not support to show unavailable booking resources there.

      You can use timeline view to show available and unavailable dates for different booking resources, like here https://bl.wpbookingcalendar.com/timeline/
      Kind Regards.

  6. Can you set a predetermined booking "length" that would be available from a drop down? i.e. Select the first day of stay and pick from Mon-Fri, Fri-Mon, Mon-Mon or Fri-Fri and the calendar will automatically plot your stay?

  7. please enable the form to auto populate when rebooking a previous customer over the phone or when they are making a reservation in person. The current way I try to do this is by searching for their name... but it is time consuming and I still have to re-type everything. ( or am I missing something when re-booking). Thank you very much

    • Hello.
      1) You can activate this option "Auto-fill fields" at the Booking > Settings General page, and when logged in user try to make the booking, then some fields, like "First Name", "Second Name" and "Email" will be auto filled from WordPress user profile to booking form.

      2) But in case if you will make the new booking from admin panel at Booking > Add booking page for some other visitor, its will not work, of course.
      As some workarround here, I can suggest that you can search specific previous booking of such user by email or phone or any other data at the Booking Listing page (you need to expand filter toolbar for ability to search booking by keyword). Watch it in this video guide https://wpbookingcalendar.com/help/booking-listing-video-tutorial/

      And after this make duplication of this booking into some other booking resource (you can find duplicate button near each booking). After this you can edit this duplicated booking, with selecting other days in calendar, and changing other details, if needed.

      P.S. You can request the new update of Booking Calendar on this page: https://wpbookingcalendar.com/request-update/

  8. The ability to select the resources you want to book in a check item type of action. This would allow the user to book multiple resources at the same time (AFAIK, this feature does not exist. I am not talking about child items either).

    For me, it would allow the Basketball courts and the nearby Canteen to be booked out at the same time so another nearby resources can't use the canteen if it gets booked.

    If this is already a function then please advise me how to do it.

    It seems this plugin is more tailored towards hotel style stuff and not resources?

    • Hello.
      We will add this feature to the TODO list for having it in future updates of plugin.

      Also please note, in Booking Calendar Business Medium or higher versions possible to show several different calendars from the different booking resources and only one booking form. So visitor can submit booking to several different booking resources with one booking form.
      Check more here: https://wpbookingcalendar.com/faq/booking-many-different-items-via-one-booking-form/

      Kind Regards.

      • Thanks for your reply!

        Further to this, it'd be good to book a parent resource and that would auto book out the child items but if you did not need that much you could select the child item individually.

        This feature would be good for schools like us that are happy for the community to book out our rooms and resources on the weekends.

        I figure there would be a lot of other things on your list to achieve now but just wondering if you have a ETA insight?

        • Hello.
          Currently we can not say about exact or estimate dates of release specific features.
          Thank you for understanding.
          Kind Regards.

  9. Hello,
    can we define events and display them as a list or in a table? is it a premium theme?
    thank you,

  10. Hello,

    Is it possible to have estra options that can be ticked/unticked and can increase or decrease the cost depending on what I set it to do?

    This would be great for offering extra things to the person booking.

    for example..
    check boxes

    Spa Package:
    [ ] Soaps and Towl ($40 extra) [ ] No extras ($0)

    Cleaning Package:
    [ ] No cleaner required ($0) [ ] Cleaner required ($80)

    it'd be great to have this then included into the total price at the end of the booking.
