Support » Plugin: WooCommerce Accommodation Bookings » Fixed Store wide check-in check-out overrides

  • The check-in and check-out times are set store wide and can not be overridden for a booking. This plugin does not use the booking check-in and check-out times, so even if you change them in the admin for a booking the site wide times are used.

    I would have hoped that check-in and check-out could have been set per booking, but this is not the case and makes this plugin unusable.

    @lauriate Did you happen to submit a ticket about this to support? If so, please let me know the ticket number. I just double checked and after manually updating check in and check out times to where bookings would overlap, I wasn’t able to select the overlapping days.

    Hi,

    I am not the person who purchased this plugin so can’t submit a ticket from my woo account.

    The main problem is that the check in & out times are set globally, this does not allow for the check in&out times to be changed for each booking (for example to allow for late check out etc)

    I have been digging into the plugin files to see where I could override this by updating the [_booking_start] [_booking_end] times for each booking using two addon fields.

    But the global times have been used in multiple places to directly override the display.

    At the moment the only way forward I can see is to copy and rewrite the whole plugin, but that is a lot of work just to allow the check in&out times to be set in the shop page using addon fields.

    The global check in&out times are used to set [_booking_start] [_booking_end] times in conjunction with the calendar setting the date. This is how I would expect the plugin to work.
    The thing that I can not understand (please let me know if there was a good reason to do it this way) is that rather than just displaying [_booking_start] [_booking_end] as normal with the times that were set globally, whenever the Check-In & Check-Out times are displayed the times are directly from the global settings. So even if you change the time in the booking admin screen the global times will always be displayed.

    Sure you can, you can either supply the order number or license number for the Bookings purchase, or they can add you as a contributor under their account.

    The times are able to be changed per booking, but they need to be changed in the admin. You’re looking to customize how the plugin itself is designed to work, which is where the problem comes in. It’s designed to be for simple overnight stays with standard check in/out times, not specialized times.

    I am sure what you are doing is able to be done, but it’s going to take quite quite a bit of customization to do so.
