[resolved] timeslots still individual events? (9 posts)

    Hi there,

    Is it still the case that even when using PRO, short time slots/appointments have to be created as individual events?

    Thanks.

    yes however can you give more details and also much better to post this on pro forum if you are a pro user.

    No a pro user yet. Would be if it supported many time slots (i.e. 30 mins) within one event, that were removed when booked.

    On that point, when an event is fully booked, it is possible to have it automatically removed from the events list?

    Hi, the way events are created etc. don't change, in fact Pro uses the free part of the plugin for this too.

    The workaround I can think of atm is create a single event and add tickets for each timeslot.

    Hi Marcus,

    Thanks for your reply. Would creating a seperate ticket for each timeslot effectivly allow a website visitor to pick from (only) available timeslots? Do you have an example of this working I could view. No hesitate to purchase pro if I know if can do this well.

    Thanks, Phil.

    A user could pick more than one slot, but you can force slots to have a limit of one space, so the moment one is taken, it disappears from the list.

    No specific example, but the same concept as our demo - http://demo.wp-events-plugin.com/events/new-model-army-9/

    each ticket can be a slot with a limit of one space.

    If you needed to take this furter you could hire a developer, hook into the plugin and change these to radio buttons instead so that only one could be picked, shouldn't take more than an hour or so.

    Thanks again Marcus - demo looks good, and close to my requirement.

    Quick Q - do we have control over the titles text so that could change 'ticket type' to something else?

    yes

    e.g. changing text Ticket type label
    you can try this snippet; just paste this in your theme functions.php

    function my_custom_ticket_header($collumns){
    	$collumns = array( 'type' => __('R Ticket Type','dbem'), 'price' => __('R Price','dbem'), 'spaces' => __('R Spaces','dbem'));
    	return $collumns;
    }
    add_filter('em_booking_form_tickets_cols','my_custom_ticket_header',1,1);

    other formats are available at settings > formatting

    Hi Marcus, I have the same needs as Philvallender. My needs are
    1. Several different clinics in one location
    2. Several locations
    3. Variable time slots for different clients

    Need to be able to block slots already taken.

    Clinic slots need to be marked out.
    I am a little nervous because the last software i bought could not be customised to fulfil the above requirements. So please clear these issues for me.
    Thanks
    Joez
