Appointment Booking Calendar

    Hiya, I have set up the free version. It seems great! Very easy to set up and understand!

    Is there a way to set it so that no one can book a time slot at the last minute? In other words, is there a way to set a time limit on how close to a time slot someone can book it?

    Thanks so much, you rock!

    Hi,

    There is a setting field named "Minimum available date". You can use that field to let some time to review the booking, so you can set the minimum selectable date as a fixed date (Ex: 2012-10-25) or as a relative date like "today" or "today - 3 days".

    Thank you for your comments.

    Thank you for such a quick response. I understand, but need a bit more info to choose my settings.

    If you give me two examples, i can extrapolate what I need to know:

    If I wanted people to be able to book an appointment time up until an hour before it, how would I set that?

    If I wanted to set it so that people could book an appointment time up until 24 hours before it, how would I set that?

    Thanks so much!!!!

    Try the following:

    today + 24 hours

    That should work fine, however note that the time will be calculated based in the server time, so if your customers don't have the same time zone than the server time zone then you should take that in account.
