setting up infrequent appointment times

I am using Appt+ to set up a schedule for cast auditions for a show. So I only need to display two days, which will be a few months away at this point. I want to set up 20 slots each on Friday, Dec 14 and Sat, Dec 15. These days will not change. How can I set this up? I do NOT want to display any other days other than the two that we are booking auditions for. Thanks, Alan

    Hi Fosterdv. Thanks for the reply. No, I have already set it up for just Fri and Sat. But I only want to have two days for the rest of this year as those are the only two days we're holding auditions. I'm getting every day this week instead. I added a screen shot so that you can see I have Fri and Saturdays set as Yes for Work, and nothing is showing up on the site side. But even if it did, I still only want to show a total of two days in December as when we are taking appointments. Any ideas are much appreciated. Thanks, Alan

    I thought I understood what you were trying to do before, and didn't read through like I should have previously.

    But, I think you might actually want to actually put that you're not working any days, and then set up an exception for the days that you want, under the exceptions tab.

    This didn't go through the first time I replied. I'll try again:
    I also tried to set up work days of m-f in a monthly view just to see if it works here:

    You can see at the bottom of the page that now there is a monthly calendar. And it does show a lot of green for open appointments. But when I click on the green, nothing happens. Shouldn't a form pop up at that point?

    In any case, I still have to figure out how to only show the two days, Dec 14 and 15 when we are holding auditions.

    Thanks again for looking into this. -Alan

    Hiya @alan_bergstein

    Greetings and thanks for posting on the forums and @fosterdv for your help on this issue.

    If you just want to show up 2 days then the Appointments+ is not the right option for you. You should consider using Events + to achieve this.

    A+ plugin is specially designed to fulfill the needs of regular appointments and can not be used for Events like Auditions !

    Please feel free to ask if you have more questions on the same.

    Thank you for replying and also thanks back out to Fosterdv for helping also.

    I'm not sure that Events+ will do the trick, as I am trying to set up 40 audition slots over a two day period, where people will pick their time slot, and get a confirmation. Please let me know if you think E+ will do that. I don't see it in the documentation. It's really too bad that A+ could not be enhanced with a way to display a set period of time.

    Back to A+ for a minute, do you know why nothing happens when I click on a free appointment cell? Please see the screen shot.

    Hey Alan,

    I am gonna look into Events+ to see how it can help you. it will require a couple of tests.

    To check what is going on with A+, can you please give me a link to the page where you see this behavior of no response when a slot is clicked ?

    Hiya, just going through some of the older threads here.

    And I noticed that you're still waiting for a response, it looks like our system didn't notify @Hakan that you responded i will let them know you are still waiting for a response, sorry for the delay

    Cheers! Tom
