  1. Booking edit screen UI improvement?

    Currently on the Booking edit screen, the "Booked Product" dropdown lists the products in a hierarchical fashion - unfortunately, if separate bookable products share a common resource it is less than abundantly obvious which product/resource pair I might be selecting. As an example: http://cld.wthms.co/m5zH/4iKLqVZZ

    I believe this should be separated out on another dropdown list for resources.

    • Unavailable resources on admin calendar

      For stores that make use of numerous resources, it would be extremely helpful to have a way to display which resources have been scheduled as unavailable during a particular day in the admin calendar.

      Would love to open up a discussion on how to prevent the admin from booking unavailable resources.

      • Developer: need a filter for a Bookable Product’s min_date and max_date

        First: It’s great that there are lots of filter hooks throughout this extension (way more than are listed in the documentation). We’re able to use them to tweak functionality in ways that are really specific to our use case.

        One great one is the ‘woocommerce_booking_get_availability_rules’, which lets us programatically change a product’s availability on its booking form page based on certain criteria. But we can’t change the earliest and latest available times, which are stored in separate variables (min_date and max_date) from the availability rules array.

        I get why this happens: these are calculated on the fly every time a…

        • Determine Shipping Methods Based on Total Payment

          Right now Deposits determines the available shipping methods based on the first payment. Some store owners may want the available shipping methods to be based on the total payments (including ones not yet paid).

          Ex. Store unlocks free shipping at $100. User adds a product to the card that's $100 but only has a 50% downpayment making free shipping unavailable.

            • Woocommerce bookings only allow 1 booking but allow selection from multiple time slots

              Say you can only take one booking per day, and the booking is for 3 hours. However you want the customer to be able to choose what time their bookings starts.

              So they can choose 10am, 1pm, 4pm etc but once any one of these times is booked for a day no more bookings can be taken for that day.

              • Assign an option for a reservation for an accommodation to be booked

                'WooCommerce Accommodation for Bookings'.

                Is it possible to assign an option for a reservation for an accommodation to be booked. So the customer can then decide after a number of days, for example, if he wants to book definitively.

                In addition, it should remain possible to immediately pay for a booking.

                • Using booking resources to share or split a product

                  There are endless end cases that a user would like to use resources to help split a product. For example, a user has a space, let's say a Basketball court, and would like to allow their customers to book all or half of the court.

                  I am not seeing any way for users to achieve this using resources. A proposed solution would be to create a condition to allow a resource to occupy the entire **Max bookings per block** but only if the entire amount **Max bookings per block** is available.

                  The condition would have to check against the individual…

                  • Ability to edit Booking on Cart/Checkout page

                    It would be great to add a button/link to the Cart page that allowed users to edit their Booking which is already in the Cart; as of right now, users would need to delete the item from the Cart, then navigate back to the product, then make their booking selection again.

                    This results in a lot of extra steps to make a change, and, if they don't remove the booking from the cart _first_, they could run into a spot wherein the spots might show up as unavailable because of the temporary hold of the spots because of the existing…

                    • Restrict start days in admin does not honor WordPress week start day

                      The checkboxes for Restrict start days do not honor the WordPress *week starts on* setting. This one's straight html if I recall correctly, so not sure if we're able to work on this easily, setting as Enhancement.

                      Image Link: http://cld.wthms.co/6rLmGA

                      How to see the challenge:

                      1. Settings > General , set your week to start on any day but Sunday.
                      1. Go into Bookable product.
                      1. Go to Availability tab and check Restrict start day.
                      1. Day will always start on Sunday.

                      • Multiple Products, One Resource

                        Here's a situation that Bookings cannot handle with using the Resources.

                        Think of a hair salon. They have the option to cut someone's hair or monitor tanning beds during the course of an hour long block.

                        If someone books a haircut, no tanning beds can be reserved. This works fine with the shop owner set as the resource.

                        But if someone books a tanning bed (the haircut can't be selected, which is perfect), but this person can help up to 5 people with tanning beds (if they have 5) during the hour.

                        In theory, if a tanning bed is booked,…

                        • Display calendar on click + calendar range picker = lots of confusion

                          What I expected

                          What people expect: click the start date, choose it from the calendar, click the end date, choose it from the calendar. This is industry standard, from Booking.com, through Airbnb till Skyscanner.

                          What happened instead

                          Click the start date: choose it from the calendar, click the end date: nothing happens, their previous choice gets reset, they click the *Choose...* link again, choose another date which they think would be end date, buts gets set as the new start one. Trying to fix their choice is not easy either

                          Steps to reproduce the issue

                          1. Set up a product…

                          • Add internal labels for resources, availability rules and cost rules

                            Booking resources have the same name in WP Admin and product page. If there's many products with the same option names (i.e. several warehouses each with rooms to rent of certain size), there's no way to distinguish which warehouse a certain room belongs to.

                            Similarly, availability and cost rules can sometimes be quite complicated - it would be nice to label them to understand where they are coming from.

                            • More Granular Start Times

                              Right now if a booking is an hour long and you start bookings at 9am, all slots would have to be on the hour (unless there is a buffer condition thrown in the mix).

                              It would be great for salons, barbers, other service business, be able to have an option offer times that start every X minutes (where they can choose, 15, 20, 30 minutes).

                              With a 15 minute increment for an hour long session, someone could choose:
                              5:00
                              5:15
                              5:30
                              5:45
                              6:00

                              as the start times instead of the currently offered:
                              5:00
                              6:00

                              Right now you can get around…

                              • Local timezone conversion

                                It would be great to have the option to set bookings to local time zones on the front-end. Consider the case of online workshops/course/lessons. The shop own is in PST and begins a workshop at 12pm. A customer in EST should see the workshop beginning at 3pm. Currently, that customer would book 12pm and show up 3 hours early.

                                  To allow visitors either 1 day for $120, a Weekend (Saturday to Sunday) for $180, or for a block count of 5 days (Monday to Friday) for $250.

                                  The current partial solution would be to use a range for **Block Count** but it would not be for specific days ( i.e. Sat - Sun | M-F )

                                  What could've happened instead
                                  Ideally if one could set the start day or date in addition to a…

                                    • Count persons per block

                                      Ran into this while testing one of our demos in docs: https://docs.woocommerce.com/document/bookings-use-case-tourist-activity/#section-4

                                      Setting booking to max 25, and in Persons, Adults max is 5 and Children max is 20. Currently it is set so the it's based on per booking so Customer 1 can book 5 adults and customer 2 can also book 5 adults, etc as it's hitting the 5 max per booking.

                                      Enhancement request:

                                      Set persons per block so that if Customer 1 books 5 adults, Customer 2 will not be able to book any adults.

                                      • Reset the start date selection in calendar range picker when clicking on a unavailable day

                                        What I expected

                                        To select an earlier start date than the one I chose by mistake.

                                        What happened instead
                                        All the dates before the original start date are greyed out, and I'm not able to click on them until I choose an end date first.

                                        Screenshot: http://cld.wthms.co/rToGNA

                                        Steps to reproduce the issue
                                        1. Create a product with customer defined blocks of one day and Calendar Range Picker enabled
                                        2. Choose a start date
                                        3. Try to choose an earlier start date instead.

                                        • Booking Form Styles are loaded on each page load

                                          The booking form styles (css files) are loaded on each page load, without any condition. Is there a specific reason why this can't be only loaded on a single product page, or even just a single booking product page?
