How to create an availability calendar.

Recommended Posts

We are in the process of opening a rental studio. I want an availability section of my site where people can see the availability of the rentable spaces.

We will offer 2 spaces. (Studio A and Studio B) I have an iCloud calendar for each of those spaces to manage bookings.

Lots of the paid services out there are designed more for booking. I don't need that. I strictly need it to show the availability. So these paid services are way to expensive for what I need. Especially once you implement 2 calendars.

the closest I've found so far is www.availabilitycalendar.com. But it doesn’t break down the times at all. If there is a one hour booking, it shows the entire day as unavailable.

Since people can either rent Studio A, Studio B or Both together. Ideally, I want people to be able to see the availability of both spaces/calendars in ONE tool. I would love them to be able to find the date they are after on a monthly view. Click on it. and see and expanded day, showing available time slot for either Studio A or Studio B (or both).

Does anyone have any leads for me? Does it exist? Or can someone refer me to a coder who could build this for me?

If you are trying to give your visitors the ability to reserve available slots, you'll need a third-party integration for this. Check out Acuity because Squarespace has a block specifically for this integration. Check out this guide here.

If you just want to display your availability without giving your visitors the ability to reserve online, you can display your sessions on an Events Page. This solution would require you to manage what your visitors see, so as they sign up for your events you'll have to manually adjust your availability. This guide here might help.
