Calendar Based Booking, Contracts, and invoices

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 have been waiting for this topic to be reviewed for ages . It would be make scheduling so much smoother and I think the idea of being able to take cc payments through the booking system would be great too. Fingers crossed!!!

        Please make this sync with local calendar software (iCal, Outlook etc). Many people do not use any Google stuff on principle.

        For research, take a good look at StudioCloud.com. It's free with optional paid add-ons. Also look at LightBlue. Not free but a 30 day trial available. It would be so much better to have all this functionality (and that of ProSelect) in one place and not have to flit between apps or websites.

        Thanks everyone for voting this up! Glad Zenfolio finally reviewed it. I almost deleted the request a while back because of non-activity. I created this over 3 years ago, and now, I accept credit card payments for in person sales, but would still like this feature for the purpose of booking with credit cards. I am being optimistic, but I saw several other requests that's been "under review" for nearly 4 years. So keep the comments and votes coming.

        I use setmore.com now, but it would be great to be able to accept payment for session fees, integrate with my Zenfolio and sync with my Google calendar.

        Not helpful to me in any way. But I can most certainly see how it would be a great feature for many wedding or occasion photographers.
