Allow Day-Only Selection Without Specifying Time?

Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to allow someone to select the day(s) to book me, and not the time.

I also want someone to be able to select multiple days, both consecutive days and non consecutive days

I work in production with a 10 hour standard day, and our start times can be anytime in a 24 hour window. Having multiple times available, or a single 7am option just adds a layer of confusion for any producer that's looking to book me, that I'm trying to avoid.

I think I have option 2-3 sorted below, so I'm just stuck on #1

1. If the day(s) is available, I want them to just be able to choose the day(s)
2. I'll use an intake form so I can learn of start and finish times
3. They can select packages
4. They can select estimated overtime

Acuity Scheduling is not suitable for this. 

Acuity Scheduling is designed to support businesses that offer multiple appointments per day; it isn’t a good option for businesses that primarily focus on overnight or multi-day appointments.

I'm looking for a similar solution for a nanny agency client of mine--the nanny needs to be reserved for the day, and the start/end time can be determined/adjusted as needed. About the ONLY solution that I have found that is close to what you need might be "time-window-based appointments" where you could just list yourself as available from 12:00am-11:59pm for each day (yes that would be a "start time" but it could also be outlined within your scheduler that you are only booked per day and the exact time can be booked via the confirmation link).

I would think that may be your only workaround, but that it could solve your problem for now!
