how do I configure Appointments + functions?

I am trying to set up Appointments + for a car service dealership. We need at this time to:

1. make the calendar appear only when user clicks on "show available times"? And

2. Add further details to the appointment, including car registration, car make, car model and current mileage

Are these possible now, or can they be made possible with advice from you please?

    Hi @Paula

    Currently, there is no built-in option to not display the calendar until "show available times" is clicked. That would require some custom coding, and I'm not really the best person to ask for that. If that is something that is absolutely required, let me know, and I'll see if I can find someone on the staff who may be able to help out.

    Depending on the complexity of the above, it may fall outside the scope of the support we can provide here. In that case, you may wish to consider posting your requirement to our jobs board where competent developers can offer their bids:

    But adding more details as you describe is actually very easy to do. Since version 1.4 (released just this morning!), there is an "Additional fields" addon that, when enabled, adds a new area to the Display Settings section under the General tab (screenshot).

    Simply define the fields you need, and they will be automatically added to the confirmation form.

    You can see an example of that here:

    Simply create an appointment, and you'll see a field called "New" in the confirmation form.

    I hope this helps! And thanks for being a member :slight_smile:
