Can you register more than one person to a time slot?

Client wants to be able to register more than one group to a time slot. So that the time slot still stays available after the first person makes their reservation, then goes unavailable after the second. He will handle the scheduling on the back end, but wants it too look that way on the front. Is this possible? or is their a work around on this?

    Hey there, Ali!

    Appointments+ is designed to be a tool to do single client > single provider appointments, but we built in some tweaks after we saw how users wanted to implement it.

    1. You can use dummy service providers to increase appointment capacity - you'd assign a "dummy" to each service that needed multiple open booking slots, each new dummy would give you another slot.

    2. You can use this code in the functions.php file for your theme or child theme:

    function increase_capacity( $capacity, $service_id ) {
    		return 10;
    	}
    	add_filter( 'app_get_capacity', 'increase_capacity', 10, 2 );

    Be sure to modify the numbers to reflect your particular needs. We cover how to do this in the Appointments+ FAQ, which you can access via the plugin menu in your WP admin area if you need to reference it later.

    Thanks for contacting us! Also, I see that your version of Appointments is outdated, make sure to update as soon as you can. :slight_smile:
