How can we improve WooCommerce?

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.

        +1 Being able to filter products by availability should be – at least in some capacity – part of a booking system.

        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.

        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....

      • Brian commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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

      • John commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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 :(

      • John commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.

      • Brett commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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)

      • Håkan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        + a proper calender widget which could be configured to show availability of multiple bookable products based on:
        - category
        - tag
        - Vendor
        - list of products

        (very close related to the Google calender feature)

        Hopefully there'll be a solution for this. I just purchased this yesterday as all other features are great, but an availability search/filter is quite crucial for a travel website..!

        I tried to use the FacetWP plugin, but I can't get it to work. Other than that it's not really a pretty lay-out.
