Hi Tim,

I'm setting up my booking calendar:

Booking Calendar/Outdoor (category)/various sessions

I have various locations that I shoot in, and if the clients don't have a way to select the location then I'm going to have to follow up every booking.

What I'm hoping I can do, is create various location pages (which would be available as webpages in their own right on my site) and have the clients select which location they want when making the booking.

What is the best way to do this?

As an extension, it would be ideal if I can somehow allocate a particluar day to a particular location once the first client on of the day has selected a location. For example, first client booking Jan 1st has option of all locations. Once they select a location and confirm the booking, clients subsiquently booking on that day only have the option of that location. So locking down the location on a particular day.

thanks!

You would either need to create a booking service for each location. And maybe check the option "All Day Event" for each service. With that checked, once someone books it it will become unavailable for the entire day.

Another method would be to create 1 booking service and create an option for location.

Tim,

Thank you for your quick response, I went with the "optional extra" option. I created some standard webpages with the locations (pictures, directions etc) and then created a drop down optional extra in the booking form where I manually keyed those locations in.

I know you are always improving this wonderful software, and having a group of web pages identified as location, and having those being selectable in the "service" (as a checkbox drop down) and selectable by the client in the booking form would be a lovely addition. I'm not sure if I've ever met a photographer that hasn't taken a photo in something other than their own studio before so I'm sure the enhancement would be widely welcomed. If you do get around to it, please consider allowing us to insert a "time between location" so the booking calendar would allow us to add minutes for a change of location if two clients pick different locations on the same day, but doesn't limit us if we have two shoots in the same location.

Until then, I'll do my best to maintain it manually.

Liz.
