How can we improve WooCommerce?

Ability to filter bookable products by date

Ability to filter bookable products by date. Enter e.g. from July 5 to July 8 and it would display only the products that are available for that period. See this example of a car rental site: http://santorinicarrentalonline.com
This could be implemented with a form (like the above example) or within Layered Navigation or both!

        Please it's a must have feature , my whole project is not able to see the sunshine because of this core feature to make a hotel marketplace like booking for a famous tourist destination in india :)
        I have faith that soon booking extension will have this feature :) please ....

        I would sure appreciate the ability to initiate the booking process by first selecting a date, which would then result in a display of all products (bookable services) available on that date. The absence of this feature is a major problem that I have yet to solve. Thanks for your consideration!

        Adding my vote to this request - it is a must-have feature for Accommodation and Booking plugins. Ideally it should further refine on product categories too, in addition to check-in and check-out dates/times. The display could be as simple as a list with links to the Bookable / Accommodation Product details.

        There is basically not so many option for providing a search feature. Most only handle dates but not time. That said the search across the availabilities needs to remain fast especially for market places. It would be great if the availabilities could be cached and updated after each new booking.

        The FacetWP plugin has a WooCommerce Bookings add-on: https://facetwp.com/ It can filter bookable products by start / end date and quantity. It currently only supports whole-day bookings, but will soon support time-based as well.

        Can I just add that Wisdmlabs have created a widget for this here: https://wisdmlabs.com/woocommerce-bookings-availability-search-widget/ However, it does not work with the new Accommodation extension. I discussed with them the possibility of adapting the existing plugin and the quotation was very reasonable (less than $200) to make it work with the Accommodation add-on! Anyway, if you have the budget - this may be worth looking into...

        When it will make searching by date? It's so stupid to have a bunch of items with dates and did not have a search for them!

        In some areas, such as real estate, this is absolutely essential, having a hard time understanding why this isn't yet part of the product.

        This is an industry standard for such businesses as hotels and a must-have feature. I think you are missing out on a bunch of clients that a forced to look for other solutions. Please take it into consideration. Thanks.

        Commenting to agree... I only wish we heard something from Woo about this--- even if they decided to charge money for this extra, I'd pay whatever they charge! Please guys--- at least respond?

        Have to say this is a must have for ANY accommodation booking site it is the number 1 criteria. When I book a holiday the first concern is where and then when, I will soon give up on the site if I find the ideal accom and then find it's not available when I can go. Please please fix this big hole in the plugin.

        Can someone confirm or deny what @Namrata says ?

        Is this request/idea fully doable with that guide ?
