Trouble Setting up Appointments+ Locations

I am looking to allow users to be able to choose 1 of our 2 spa locations from a drop down menu when making a reservation here.

I added duplicate services for the two locations, but this creates too many services, which will be difficult for our clients to choose the right location. I thought a drop down menu would be enabled with [app_service_location] but it hasn't appeared.

Full app code is below.

[app_my_appointments]
[app_services select="Treatments"]	[app_service_providers select="Therapists"]
[app_service_location]
[app_monthly_schedule]
[app_pagination month="1"]
[app_login]
[app_confirmation]
[app_paypal]

I would also like to embed the location into reservation confirmation and reminder emails. Let me know how to do this. Can't find a recent post in the forums.

Thanks for your help!

    Hi Maika,

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

    If you are using the shortcode [app_service_location] in pages then try selecting the option "I will add location info manually, using shortcode" in the "Show service location" Appointments + field on the following path as displayed in the attached screenshot.

    Admin Area -> Appointments -> Settings -> Locations

    To add location info in the appointment confirmation and reminder emails use the macros LOCATION or LOCATION_ADDRESS in the appointment Confirmation/Reminder email Message on the following path.

    Admin Area -> Appointments -> Settings -> General -> Notification Settings

    Hi Maika,

    Thank you for your reply.

    I have tested it on my test site and found along with using these shortcodes we have to pass service/provider id as parameter to it as following to make it work.

    [app_worker_location worker_id="1"]
    
    [app_service_location service_id="3"]

    You will find more information about location shortcodes on the following Appointments+ Shortcodes page.

    Admin Area -> Appointments -> Shortcodes

    There are various Appointments locations add-ons as following which you can activate from Appointments add-on page.

    Locations : Allows you to create locations for your appointments.
    Locations on Google Maps : Allows you to bind locations to your services.
    Service Locations : Allows you to bind locations to your services.
    Worker Locations : Allows you to bind locations to your Service Providers.

    Is there anything else that could be preventing the location drop down from showing?

    Could you please tell me a bit more in detail which location drop down you are talking about?

    I input those lines of code for worker_id="1" through our 4 workers, but then whole post vanished. I granted WPMU support access, would that help you take a look?

    <table>
    <tbody>
    <tr>
    <td colspan=&quot;2&quot;>[app_my_appointments]</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td>[app_services select=&quot;Treatments&quot;]</td>
    <td>[app_service_providers select=&quot;Therapists&quot;]</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td colspan=&quot;2&quot;>[app_service_location]</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td colspan=&quot;2&quot;>[app_monthly_schedule]</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td colspan=&quot;2&quot;>[app_pagination month=&quot;1&quot;]</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td colspan=&quot;2&quot;>[app_login]</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td colspan=&quot;2&quot;>[app_confirmation]</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td colspan=&quot;2&quot;>[app_paypal]</td>
    </tr>
    </tbody>
    </table>

    By drop down menu, I mean I am trying got creat something like the attached screenshot, but for our 2 spa locations.

    Hi Maika,

    Thank you for granting us support staff access.

    I logged in to your site and found you are not using correct service provider/worker and services ids. You will find the ids on the following path as displayed in the attached screenshots.

    Admin Area -> Appointments -> Settings -> Services
    Admin Area -> Appointments -> Settings -> Service providers

    Also if you want to display dropdown menu of available service locations then use following shortcode.

    [app_service_locations]

    To display dropdown menu of available provider locations use following shortcode.

    [app_provider_locations]
