One off events and available time slots

I have set up a one off event using appointment+ and I have a few suggestions to make it simpler when setting up a one off event. In my case the event runs for 3 days next week.

What I had to do:
- Set the default working hours for the service provider (user) and with work = yes on the relevant days
- Set the exceptions (Exceptional NON working days) to a very long list of days to make sure the event does not show up in the following weeks

I would have thought that I could do that:
- Set the default working hours for the service provider (user) and with work = No on every day of the week
- Set the exceptions (Exceptional working days) to include to days of the event

When I use that later option the days show up but the working hours are not taken into account and the time slots do not match.

I hope this is not too confusing.

    Hi Nic,

    I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

    As this is one off event and will run for 3 days next week you can achieve this easily using the 'Appointments upper limit (days)' field in the Appointments general settings on the following path.

    Admin Area -> Appointments -> Settings -> General -> Time Settings

    The default is 365 so it displays the calendar for the whole upcoming year. Just set it to whatever period is most convenient for you. I think for next week you can set this value in between 7 to 15 days.

    You have to set working hours only for those 3 days. You can also use Exceptions if required.

    Please advise if you have more questions.

    Best Regards,
    Vinod Dalvi
