I need to post a schedule (dates and times) that a user can select and reserve, that will disable that selection when others fill out the form. In other words, show that it is reserved and cannot be selected. Is there any way to do this?November 2, 2010 at 9:16 pm #5480

The short answer is yes. You can definitely create a scheduling system to manage use of an asset. I am setting you up a bit with that answer because there are several different ways to accomplish the task.
One common method is to create a form that contains the available time slots for the asset. You can create different instances for different periods of time (day, week, etc…) depending on your process. Then a second form is the interface for the user. When the second form opens it connects to the first form and returns available time slots. When a time slot is chosen, it once again connects to the first form so the time slot can be “reserved” in the first form. This is of course a very general description of how to manage your process, not a detailed guide.
