Integrating with a appointment calendar

    Hi,

    I have a client who needs as part of his form to:

    [a] have the ability to enter a promotional code for discounted rates is required
    Promotional codes - created by the administrator

    [b] in step 3 User Selects a date from an online Calendar for an appointment. i'm thinking to integrate with vcita.com - what are your thoughts? is this possible? we must have a calendar in place...
    User required to enter their phone number and email address
    When the user submits to book their appointment, an email is sent to the user and the administrator confirming the successful booking.

    and then the option to purchase a package [based on selections they made in step 1 and 2.
    [c] for customers to remain on the site while buying with paypal.

    Thanks,
    Curlylocks

  2. a) discount codes are supported using the calculation functionality present in Gravity Forms since 1.6

    b) I have no experience with vcita, but you can integrate Gravity Forms with any 3rd party service using the gform_after_submission hook. There may be other ways to do it as well. This will likely be the most challenging part of your integration, and I have no experience with vcita to know how involved this will be or if you can even make it work.

    c) to keep the customer on the site and pay with PayPal are sort of two different things. You can use PayPal to handle the payment behind the scenes with the PayPal Payments Pro, or you can send them to PayPal to complete their transaction with PayPal Payment Standard. We have an add-on for either scenario. These add-ons require that you have a developer license.

    Thank you, Chris.
    And thanks for speedy response.

    Is there a hook for integrating within form, meaning, prior to customer submitting form? If i wanted for example to place vcita appointment scheduler in one of required steps, for example.

    Thanks

  4. Within a form is more difficult. Until the form is submitted, Gravity Forms does not have the data, so it's difficult to process it.
