New Feature: Booking by Time

2 weeks 2 days ago #47329 by Yaritza Ramírez
Hi Vince;
I don't know if this new feature has been requested before, but I will mention it here.
Jomres (Thanks for this great tool) is a super flexible tool for booking online, and that means it can be used to book from Rooms to Bikes or Restaurants tables, etc.
Not all "Room types" are booked the same way, and here is a practical example:
For a multi property portal, a restaurant can be added, and room types become in Tables, so for a Double Room it could be Table for two.
In this scenario, a table can't be booked all day/night, the solution will be create multiple tariff with name like "Table for two at 7 pm", "Table for two at 8.30 pm" etc.
What happen if instead of doing that, we could have the availability to configure "Time Slots" for a Table?

Another example will be Boats, or jet skis, or any other "property" that can be reserved for a period of time, for example, one hour, two hours, etc.

Please let me know your opinion on this feature.

Developed and maintained by Vince Wooll and Aladar Barthi, Jomres was initially conceived in early 2005 as a Mambo based solution to a client’s hotel management needs. While it wasn't originally expected to be an online booking system it quickly morphed into one as users requested more and more features.

As the number of feature requests grew Vince knew that he would need to dedicate more time to the project and in July 2005 Jomres was formally released as a commercial project. Since then, Jomres has become one of Mambo’s, and now Joomla’s, longest running projects. It has survived various versions of Mambo, then Joomla 1.0, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3.

Aladar joined the project in 2010 after using Jomres for his own projects. He was active on the forum, helping other members of the community and eventually Vince invited him to join the team. He has since become an integral part of the project and has contributed significantly to it's development over the years.

Whilst not formally part of the Jomres project, Rodrigo Rocco and the team have become firm friends. Rod is a freelancer who specialises in doing custom work for Jomres users and developing custom plugins for the system that take advantage of it's modular design. He has built many useful extensions including his fabulous new Valentina Template Package.
