Pre-purchase questions

  1. poweb


    Thank you for a great plugin. I'm looking at buying the dev license but I have a few questions.

    I want to create a website where people will be able to make a booking for a table in a restaurant. BUT, I don't want them to be able to book less than one hour before a certain time (such as 12 pm for lunch).

    Everyday, the last opportunity to make a booking should be 11AM for Lunch time or 4PM for dinner the same day. This would be repeated every day. So if someone tries to make a booking at 11.30 for lunch they will receive an error message, too late for booking, come back later, or something like that. It would be locked on a fixed time zone, so no requirement to "understand" the time zone of the browser or something... This happen in the same city.

    Would this be doable with your plugin? Would it require customisation? Will buying a dev license give me access to this kind of support? Are such customisation even possible (I'm very much open to suggestions here :) ). I've heard a lot of good things about you guys, let me know if something is doable.

    Thank you very much for your time,

    In simpler terms, could i use gravity forms as a booking form where i could set how far in advance an appointment can be booked?

    Gravity Forms isn't ideal for this kind of situation as we don't have the ability to control dates/times as you've listed in your longer, more detailed message. You would have to create a great deal of custom code to do it with Gravity Forms. There is a large thread on our forums where people are discussing options for Booking plugins for WordPress, and the consensus is that there isn't a good option yet...

    Hi David,

    Well... that was not the answer I was not hoping for :)

    Thank you for your answer anyway. I found a plugin called birchpress scheduler pro that might do the trick. However yours is much more attractive in many ways. If one day, you get inspire by them, you'll have me as a customer!

    Have a good day and thank you again for your reply,
