Allow me to specify which fields are required on the booking page
Some businesses don't require an email address but instead require a phone number. Bookings should let the business choose which fields are required from the customers making a booking online.
We’ve started work to let you choose which fields are shown on your Booking page as well support for marking them as required/optional. Stay tuned!

PLEASE UPDATE THIS NOW - It should be just a simple line of code...
see below -
"It's been two months since this was started and 7 months since it was requested. What's happening???"
We would also like to make the phone number field mandatory.

All of our bookings are done via phone. Currently it is slated as "optional". Confusing for our customers.

The ability to have the address field set to required for my onsite service calls is needed
When can we expect this feature to be done? I'm really looking forward to using this service, but I need this to work first!
I would like to have address as a required filed. I will use this for booking of locale and I need to verify the users address in our area first.

Agree this would be a great feature. I have a call option but the client is not required to put in phone number if I do not have it already then I have no way to know what number to call
Please make contact telephone a required field for the business contact

I am new to Booking and just tested it today. I am currently using VCita and reviewing the options available with Booking. I would like to have this option too as some of my services are via online or by phone.

Very importent idear. When collection personal information from users, it would be necessary to ensure the information it specific for the purpose and data minimized.
Allow the option to make the customer phone number (and address) required fields. The phone number is especially useful for if I need to cancel at short notice I can call them when an email may not be read in time.

When the customer enters the address (BTW, give the option to make the address field mandatory), that address should automatically sync to the Calendar event of the Staff that it's being assigned to. In addition, the notes should sync to the calendar event. This way the employee could look at his/her calendar, see the booking and get everything s/he needs to know without having to login to the booking page.

Make the address a setting for optional or mandatory. I personally cant book without an address

I prefer to have both phone and email before a client can book an appointment with me.
