Appointments + Features Request

Just started using this Plugin, and it is verrry nice.

Thanks to the developers and contributors for a great tool. I have just 3 suggestions that might be worth discussing:

1. Service Provider working hours. The current arrangement allows for work days, start and finish times and a break. It could be much more flexible to provide just three periods per day where start and stop times can be entered. Providers could use 1, 2 or all three periods. Breaks can be assumed, as can work days, providing much more flexibility;

2. Dummy Service Providers. A great tool for scheduling use of scarce resources. Am I mistaken in thinking there must be a user record for each dummy? If not, then eliminating this as an essential requirement would improve flexibility. Could we also have an option that if checked would block appointment time of the linked provider as well as the dummy. Again, more flexible: and

3. Service Providers need a way to quickly block out one or a series of slots to cater for regular clients who dont want to make lots of appointments. A grid click arrangement would be ideal.

Thanks for listening :slight_smile:

    Hi Gary,

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    For 1) and 3) you can use GCal API integration which will give you lots of freedom to block any time slots, including recurring cases.

    For 2), all services providers, including dummies, should be members of your website and this cannot be changed. However you can use fake emails for dummy providers and thus easily create them. But if you use real Google emails and accounts, their time slots can also be blocked as in the above case.

    Cheers,
    Hakan
