I was hoping to use this plug-in for a tour business. However, when setting up a test it seems like only one booking can be made per slot (time/date/employee/location). Is there a way to allow multiple people to booking into the same slot up to the maximum number?
For example, I set the maximum capacity to 20. Someone books for a tour for 2 people at 9 o’clock on the 5th April in London. The booking is confirmed. I then want to allow up to 18 other people to book onto the same tour. Can I do this?

Thanks for your question. At the moment, there is no possibility to create such type of group services by using the Appointment Booking plugin. However, you may enable the option for 1 guest to book service for several persons.

Thanks for confirming John. Are there any plans to include this functionality? The plugin isn’t appropriate for public tours without this.March 22, 2023 at 2:21 pm #1432109J. DavisKeymaster

Hi! You can add me to the list for this as well. My scenario is doggy daycare (daytime only). I can’t very well use hotel bookings for it, so it’s more like booking a resource with no employee attached (same as the other guy with the tour.. or if I were reserving books or anything else that isn’t a 1:1 time with a person). So, it’s almost like just a tweak to the plugin to make it optional to have an employee attached. No employee means no max 1 limitation of bookings. I’ll work around it by putting 5 “employees” on the service I suppose, but it’s awkward.September 20, 2023 at 9:18 am #1506513Brent WhistlerParticipant
The other option to address this need might be to allow the hotel booking plugin to be by the hour instead of requiring an overnight stay – which would have the side-effect of accommodating the many many hotels (motels) that offer hourly rates.September 28, 2023 at 12:05 am #1509941J.
