    I am seeking help with building a scheduling service on a wordpress-based website I am building.

    I need my customers to select from about 15 services. Some of them will be a few hours long. Some will be 1, 2 or even 5 days long. How can I have a customer select & schedule a multi-day day service? They need to be cumulative as well. So if they pick a 4 hour service, a 1 day service and a 3 day service, then the calendar needs to schedule a 4.5 day appointment. The longest appointment needed will not be expected to exceed 2 weeks. I need options for each service to either include a weekend, or span a weekend (i.e 5 days starting Thu with a weekend would be Thu-Mon. 5 days but not working a weekend would be Th-Fri, Mon-Wed). Pricing would be different for weekend work, hence 2 services in this case.

    Can I use this plug-in to have customers select and schedule such multiday services?

    You can book multi-day services but the plugin will not ‘glue’ them together if the bookings are for different services. If it’s for the same service, then yes. It could be helpful if you could explain what the services are to visualise things better. Feel free to contact us via our support portal at https://zingiri.com/go

    Imageine a job booking for a carpenter.

    One day has 8 hours.
    The are are 5 services:

    A. Hang an internal door (2 hours)
    B. Build an understairs cupboard (1 day)
    C. Lay 20sqm of wooden floor (4 hours)
    D. Lay 50sqm of wooden flooe (1 day)
    E. Lay 250sqm of wooden floor (4 days)

    The customer chooses to order two ‘A’, one ”B’, and one ‘E’. Therefore the calendar need to allow him to choose a timeslot, and that timeslot must be 2x2h + 1d + 4d = 5.5d.

    Thanks for clarifying. Our solution has a booking cart (like a shopping cart) that allows booking multiple services in one go. However it will not glue them together automatically so the person who is making the booking needs to pick the service and the time slot for each. Of course we could always look at improving the solution to support such a requirement.

    Thanks for the update. Does your solution also include allowing a user to select a service in the booking cart that is more than one day? ie. Choosing option ‘E’ in my previous example, and booking a single, 4-day service?

    Yes multi-day bookings are possible.

    Great. I am going to give the plug-in a try, and if I have any issues, or need any enhancements, I will get back to you. Many thanks.
