Can I limit number of hours per week per client?


Is it possible to limit number of appointments set by clients?

For example, I do not want clients to create more than 3 appointments per week. Is that possible?

    Greetings azamt,

    Welcome to WPMU Dev!

    Thank you for the great questions and to the best of my knowledge there is not a facility to limit the amount of appointments a particular client can make.

    But before I stick foot in mouth, lets ask the Chief of the Appointments+ plugin project and ask him what advice/advise he may have for us regarding this feature.

    Though this may take a bit longer then a normal ticket, I will try to get him in here asap.

    Cheers, Joe

    Yes, that is possible, but if you require logging in to the website only.

    Add the following codes to functions.php of your current theme:

    function check_app_quota( $reply_array ) {
    if ( !is_user_logged_in() )
    return $reply_array;
    global $current_user, $wpdb;
    $count = $wpdb->get_var( "SELECT COUNT(*) FROM " . $wpdb->prefix . "app_appointments WHERE status<>'removed' AND user=".$current_user->ID." AND WEEK(created)=WEEK(CURDATE()) " );
    if ( $count>=3 ) {
    die(json_encode(array('error'=>'Sorry, your appointment quota is full')));
    return $reply_array;
    add_filter( 'app_pre_confirmation_reply', 'check_app_quota' );


    1) You can remove status<>’removed’ condition if you wish.

    2) if you do not require login, there is no solution as user can always use another browser and/or PC and fake his identity.
