Support forumCategory: Questionslimit booking leadtime
lzevon asked 12 months ago

We would like to eliminate the possibility of a user booking an appointment last minute and instead require that if the appointment was not made by 11:59PM the previous day, the appointment slots for the following day be unavailable. For example, a customer who wants to make an appointment for Wednesday 10/27 would only be able to do so until Tuesday 10/26 at 11:59PM and not earlier on that same day (e.g. 9AM 10/27 for an 11AM virtual appointment).
Is this possible?

I found the BlockTime setting and set it to 661 which should give me the lead time we need. I saw an older ticket, but the directions referred to where to set this using an older version of the plugin.

Hi, yes that is solution. You can use block time inside EA Settings.

doesn’t seem to work for me I have 1440 mins blocked (to prevent someone making a booking the day before) and they can still do it. Any other way? There used to be a setting that was easier 🙂

Hi, you can block it inside calendar. Just put +1d inside min_date shortcode.

Best regards,
