Check Availability Widget
I'm configuring WooCommerce Bookings to be used as a hotel booking system. A common requirement is to have a "Check Availability" widget seen throughout the site. Visitors can pick their dates, hit submit, and they would see a list of results showing which rooms (products) are available for those dates.
Was this ever finished / solved ?
We did that with some coding, but we would prefer an official release/solution.
We are currently working on a Availability Search for WooCommerce Bookings.
I am quite disappointed this is not part of the default package. One would expect this from a "booking plugin". The demand seems to be there since 2014. Why the delay?
I've created 2 versions of selecting the date first for WooBookings, http://plugins.doitsimply.co.uk/
You can see how it works on one of my websites, www.pedalabikeaway.co.uk/bike-hire/
I have also helped several businesses implement their own version of this. So please get in touch if you would like help.

Someone who knows if this feature is added? I really need a check availebility based on date.

+1 Being able to filter products by availability should be – at least in some capacity – part of a booking system.
Is this being considered?
It is really crazy that this feature hasn't been added since a 2014 request whilst it's pretty much a standard function in bookings.
Se può aiutare vi segnalo Pinpoin,fa esattamente e più quello che serve ed è ben integrato in woo,resta il fatto che sarebbe giunto il momento che woo lo integri..sto aspettando anche io..
I've created a plugin to select date first and I have the first version ready to test. The limit for this version is it works on full days only. I will work on smaller time slots later. Please add your interest here.
You can read my original write up on how to do it yourself here,
This would be really great. By the way it is a common thing in most professional booking systems....
This is exactly what I need, there is a huge gap in the market for this! You would think it would be a fundamental part of any booking system.
I won't purchase this plugin until they have this "Availability checking" feature.... Look at the Changelog, just some small fixes... hmm
I wonder when will you guys make this idea happen? Right now the FacetWP is the only choice for us, however that plugin is not powerful enough to filter bookable products :(
I am also looking for this feature... Really tired of searching solution for this. This one is a MUST HAVE, otherwise your site is not truly a booking site!

For my needs I would like to see a calendar display (much like the calendar when in the product date selection) showing available and booked days for an "Accommodation booking" product. ShortCode should have an attribute of the product ID to differentiate calendar when you have multiple "Accommodation booking" products and the ability to select count of months in advance.
Example is the availability shortcode in "WP Booking System"
I agree with the other comments that a date filter would be really useful as well with the ability to specify criteria such as category or maybe even a list of products
Is there a Woocommerce Bookings widget to display anywhere on website to filter availability of resources? (example: home page - side bar, full width calendar, sticky sidebar widget etc.) I want customers to have quick access and a user friendly experience when it comes to looking for availability for a resource.
It was would be great if there was a filter functionality on the calendar on the front end that allows users to choose a resource and its global product availability (example - weekend, weekday, weekly)
+ a proper calender widget which could be configured to show availability of multiple bookable products based on:
- list of products
(very close related to the Google calender feature)
How can i do that? please
