This is a very important feature for better user experience.
In our case, at the end of a year we begin to set up products for next year. I have a few products in which the first bookable slot begins only in April. So on the frontend, the datepicker is greyed out from Dec to April. My customer assumed that my website was bugged and the datepicker was not working, not knowing that the date was available for selection in the April datepicker.
For such products, we have set up a product in the following manner:
Under the General tab:
- Booking Duration: Fixed Blocks of 12 days
Under the Availability tab:
- All dates are 'not-available by default'
- Added 8 custom date start and end date ranges, each lasting for 12 days.
It would be great if we have a checkbox option to 'show dropdown list' instead of a calendar-datepicker. Data can be derived from the data ranges defined above. And on the front end teh user can select a date range from the ranges defined (which is 8 of them in our case).Anonymous supported this idea ·
