Booking calendar plugin
It would be so useful to have a booking calendar plugin that can be used on any theme. You're already halfway there with Diner's reservation bookings. It would be great to see something that can be used either for reservations (hotel, restaurant), or service bookings (consulting, spa)
There are a few available plugins like this for Wordpress, but I haven't found one that is particularly good. The Woo team could definitely build a superior plugin.
What about an hotel theme. Would be great if it could be integrated with Google apps / calendar for making bookings directly. Then resellers could also connect to the same Google calendar and see if there is any rooms left. The theme would use lots of images for showing of the rooms.
Be great to have a theme that allows me to rent my cottage though a WP theme.
Availability calendar with allowing admin to select block weeks and colour them on the calendar as 'available' 'booked'
Enquiry forms that link to the calendar.
Customer database allowing you to send confirmation emails, updates and newsletters.
Just a thought, be great if you could do one :)
Hairdressers, beauticians, dieticians etc run their business by appointment. Would like to see a theme that included a booking facility (like in diner) but that only allows a time to be booked a certain number of times based on the number of therapists/stylists/whatevers are working in the business (can be managed day by day), sends reminders to clients. Also to include here in a commerce section to show case and sell the products stocked by the business.
I have to add my voice to the urgent need for an a room allocation, multisite and appointment scheduler. I run a counselling service from service rooms and several locations. I have searched the web for a good appointment and rooms booking system to no avail. Plenty that do bits, plenty that are too expensive for a small biz. I would love to have some input when the plugin or theme is being developed. In anticipation.

I am a photographer and use bookingbug.com for studio bookings. Lots of really great features but expensive. Looking for some some alternatives Ink Themes have just launched an appointment theme http://inkthemes.com/wptheme/appointway-doctors/
Would really like to known when you guys will release something.

+1 this is perfect for what I need.
Hope this comes sooner rather than later
Is anything happening with this? I have client sites where I need to use it. If I need to look for an alternative, it would be helpful to know. Thanks!
Is this ever happening its been almost a year since it was planned
Don't forget to implement automatic time zone calculations. I'm planning a world wide online coffee consultancy website (and for that reason looks so much forward to this feature!) and it would be a HUGE value for me that already on the booking-system level that no time zone mistakes will be introduced between me and my customers.

This would be huge. There are only a few plugins that really work out there. Events manager is close. Modern tribe has their woo tickets, but that's not really a full featured booking system that extends past single events or single purpose (wont work with general service - must be tied to single event), and WPMU dev has appointments, but that has flaws too. They're planning bookings but that has been in development a long time too. Something from woo would be super handy for this.
I could REALLY use this because I run a psychotherapy service in my country.
Does anyone know a good way to schedule coaching/therapy sessions using woothemes?

any update on when? I have an installation business and a physical therapist that I could really use this on.

Interested in learning if there's an update beyond "Planned" for this.
Any word on this since it was set as planned in 2012?. Deff. could use something that does service bookings (i.e: book 2 hrs a day or a full day for a service).
It does the lot. It'll even process payments in direct competition to woo (sorry, Woo). On the downside the premium version with ecommerce capability is an eyewatering 119euro! Ouch. But even the free version might help out some people... it picks up the price of woo products and calculates the number of nights to generate a total etc.
C'mon Woo, I'd prefer to send some cash your way and not have to undo everything I've already done in the process ;D
Hmmm... I just found this, have installed and it's looking very promising!
I have to agree - would love to see this! Availability control for individual products, with a date picker on the front end would be awesome. Great for my latest client who offers bed and breakfast accommodation on behalf of multiple homeowners, and many other service-led businesses too I expect.
Woo thrives on websites made for small to medium businesses and no one has come up with this yet so to me it just sounds like common business sense! Likewise, to echo someone else, you have the core done through Diner already, no?
Keep up the good work.
Please guys ! That would be awesome and you will make the Jackpot with that feature !
Could you please tell us an idea of the expected delivery ?
Happy New Year! Any news? Please
