WP Time Slots Booking Form

Description

WP Time Slots Booking Form creates booking forms for booking time slots into the calendar dates. Basically you can create a form with a calendar where the end-user can pick times into the calendar dates and book them. Notifications emails are sent to let the admin know that a booking was completed and confirmation email can be sent also to the user making the booking.

This type of booking is useful for reserving classrooms, purchasing event tickets, medical / doctors appointments, booking times in escape rooms, booking personal coaching or other professional assistance, booking cleaning services and any other type of service where the customer needs to select a date-time or a group of date-times (time slots) from a set of available times.

In the calendar you can setup:

  • The available time slots for each weekday
  • The available time slots on specific dates
  • The capacity (# of persons that can book) of each time slot
  • The number of different time slots that can be selected in a single booking
  • Min and maximum available dates
  • Holiday / closed dates
  • Price for each time slot
  • Prices for different number of selected slots
  • Prices for (example) the number of adults and number of children (optional)
  • Number of months to display
  • … and other calendar features

In addition to the calendar-related features, other important features of the plugin are:

  • Modern look / mobile friendly
  • Responsive calendar and form
  • Visual form builder
  • Multi language support
  • Notification emails
  • Antispam features
  • Email reports
  • CSV reports
  • Usage / Stats area
  • Bookings list
  • Printable schedule list
  • Multi-View calendar for displaying schedule
  • Integration with Elementor, Gutemberg and other page builders
  • Add-ons support with iCal add-on included

The plugin properly manages the availability of each time slot, allowing to define a maximum capacity for each time slot and to define also the maximum number of time slots that the customer can select for the booking.

You can optionally allow multiple persons to book the same time-slots until its capacity become fully filled. The plugin allows to setup different prices for two groups (example: adults and children) and features other options that make it appropriate for purchasing even tickets or other activities / items with multiple capacity.

The Troubleshoot Area

Use the troubleshot if you are having problems with special or non-latin characters. In most cases changing the charset to UTF-8 through the option available for that in the troubleshot area will solve the problem.

This is a great Plugin with fantastic tech support. It looks great, is easy to use and is perfect for anyone who is running a website that needs a booking calendar. I linked the Plugin to Stripe payments and it works well.

The only plugin I have found that allows variable booking times, not just fixed. Each time slot can have different times(duration). Nice

I was looking for an easy to use time-slots booking form. This made my day. A few German translations are missing (e.g. when a recipient receives an e-Mail there is still the word "appointment"). But I can live with that.

I have at the moment enough with the free version, but thinking in the future to buy the payed one. I have review more than 10 plugins for booking and this had more features that I needed, like not having to pay for booking, having different calendars, getting a message on booking for administration, dividing the day by hours and being able to select several hours, and more. And also very quick support response. Very good plugin 🙂
