Calendar Based Booking

If you would like to have a Calendar Based Booking feature added, please vote. The idea is this: a potential client visits your site and wants to know your availability. She sees that a particular day is available, and clicks on that day. She is then presented with a form that contains fields of information that the photographer deems necessary. After filling out the information, the data is emailed to the photographer, and that date is temporarily booked, pending payment. If you would like a calendar/booking feature similar to this implemented, please vote now

        I would love to have a feature where the credit card can be collected to be held as a deposit in case of no show also. thanks!

        Please make this happen ASAP; I love using the site and I am ready to add a scheduling feature for clients and will be forced to use another company to do this with. Such a shame you do not offer this feature yet. :-( Please fix. :-)

        As much as it would be convenient to add right to Zen--its been under review for 3 years now. I've used a few different trial ones and am thrilled with Acuity scheduling. I paid the yearly fee---which is SO cheap for what it does for you. Everything is customization. Simple. Syncs with google contacts and emails. Super easy and perfect for photographers--especially for various session hours. I have set hours for different session types-children, family, seniors, newborns, etc...You have the option to have them pay right away, make a deposit, etc...They send reminder texts/emails. I have it linked right from my home page. I have a mini session weekend at the end of the month blocked off just for this and its nice to just post the ad on fb and they can go pick the times and pay for it right away. Check it out if you'd like from my home page: www.violetlacephotography.com

        I want to use your site, but it needs to it all! I need an app form the client to schedule appointments with me. I might still use your site, but I will have to use another one for scheduling

        Why is this something that is still not available. I love all other features of this site, but this one really gets my goat!!!!! Enough already and just make it available!!!

        Look at Booking Bug and vCita, which are the best two online scheduling programs for photographers out there right now. Combine them and you will have a winner. Robust bidirectional Google calendar syncing is a must.
