    And also allow that each offered service can have an personalized range of dates available, for a better customer experience.

    This would be fantastic. We often have events that only happen between date X and date Y. While we can put in availability of staff for those specific service events, we don't want those dates to slide out indefinitely. We want them to end on date Y.

    We use Bookings for one-off events. It would be awesome to set availability dates for a service. Ex. Service 1 @ location 1 for 3 days starting on Jun 3; Service 2 @ location 2 for 2 days starting May 28. Right now I use the Time Off for each staff and have to enter the days when the event is not happening. It would be far easier to simply specify the days when the service is being provided.

    I perform free hearing screenings at various country locations where I am there for one day only every couple of months, so having this feature would avoid customers booking the wrong day. Please action this one ASAP.

    We would like to use this service to book Parent/Teacher conferences which are only available specific weeks of the year. This would help us out tremendously.

    We need this feature e.g. fairs. Every other booking tool has the opportunity to set a service for a specified date.

    This would be excellent as then bookings can be managed for events that only occur for a specific period of time. At present, it is open as soon as the event is published but reality you might not want the booking to be available until the day of the event.

    If you book in time off at the moment for the staff, it blocks out their personal calendar which isn't correct.

    To get around this we have had to create two people who are "false" staff but they are getting booked against and they have their time booked out before and after the actual event. This is painful.

    Understand this is a new product however, would be good to have.

    THIS. THIS. THIS! As a consultant with several offerings, it's essential that I am able to offer specific periods that they can book this service:

    Service 1: Wed, Thurs, Fri - 9am-3pm
    Service 2: Mon - Friday - 9am-5pm

    Adding more detail... I see the interaction (UX) for adding Service availability being the same as adding a recurring event on a calendar. That is, it should allow setting Service availability for recurring time periods, with time, frequency and start and end dates. eg. "from 3pm to 6pm, weekly every Tuesday and Thursday, starting Tuesday 3rd June and ending Thursday 27 June". Also you should be able to add multiple, recurring availabilities so that you can throw in alternate time periods.

    Must have! You need to be able to restrict bookings for certain services to specified dates and times. Just because a "staff member" is available it doesn't mean other things are lined up and available all the time.

    The booking function is terrific in concept, but with our business, if there is no way to set the dates that the booking can occur, we cannot practically use this feature.

  • Lisbeth commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Without this feature Bookings is more or less useless, not just for me but for my whole team. It would of very high value to get this feature, since it would be possible to automate processes in a way we can't now.

  • Andre T. commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This is really essential. We can't create events without being able to bind Services to some specific dates / ranges.
