Before you begin the installation process, you will need to determine what information you need to capture for your bookings.
To simplify the selection process we have created an article on How to Choose the Right Booking Form.
There are 6 available Options:
The simplest method of capturing a booking is via a single date picker. This is best for rental products, such as equipment or clothing. Typically this is used with variants that specify a booking period (i.e./ 3 day rental) so you don't need to provide a date picker for the end date.
Capturing a date range is similar to capturing a single date but with an additional date picker to set an end date. BookThatApp automatically ensures that the end date is not before the start date.
Use this option if you want to display a drop down of times during the day. This option is good for appointments and product rentals where you are open for business every day and have a defined start and stop time. Note: See Opening Hours for how to configure available times. (See Installation Guide for additional information)
To show times available based on the product schedule you can use our scheduled time widget in conjunction with the date picker. The widget shows available time slots based on the schedule configured for that product. When a date is chosen the drop-down updates to only show time slots available on the selected day. The widget code can go anywhere, but it typically added just after the date picker. This is the best option if you want to only offer appointments at certain set times as opposed to hourly. i.e./ 9 am, 12 pm and 3 pm. It is also appropriate if you are offering a class or a course.
Similar to Booking Form Option 4, but this booking form shows a list of upcoming events rather than a date and time picker. This is good if your events are sporadic as it saves your customers from having to scroll through the date picker to find an event. The product profile can be either "Class/Course" or "Tour/Activity". Using "Tour/Activity" adds the ability to add a "number in party" to a variant. ie. Single Ticket - Number in Party = 1, Family Ticket - Number in Party = 4. You can create a recurring schedule or a series of one-off dates.
Similar to Booking Form Option 2, this form is typically used for product rentals, but it captures a start time and an end time in addition to the start and finish dates. With this form, the length of the booking will be the amount of days chosen in the date range. The product profile should be "Product".
