A booking form allows FormSmarts members to offer a fixed number of tickets for booking on a form, like on this demo.
To make a booking form, first create an event on FormSmarts with a preset number of slots (i.e. tickets, seats), then make a standard form with the form builder and add a booking field to it.
Create an Event
To create an event, sign in to the API console and submit a
POST request to the URL
- An event label like Online Security Class
- The number of slots available for booking
- The date & time of the event and its timezone
We can for example create an Online Security Class event with 100 seats that takes place on June 12, 2020, 1pm Eastern time with the following Request Data:
label = Online Security Class slots = 100 date = 2020-06-12 13:00:00 timezone = America/New_York
Add a Booking Field
Add a text box to the form, setting its Allowed Content property to Booking.
Guests should now be able to book tickets through a booking widget shown when they tap, click or move the form’s focus to the booking field.
A booking field only allows booking one ticket by default. You can configure the number of slots that can be booked and other settings with the Booking API.
