Fix “rolling window of availability” problem caused by “Minimum block bookable” and “Maximum block bookable”

This is difficult to explain quickly, but setting “Minimum block bookable” and “Maximum block bookable” to use Days causes a rolling window of availability, minute by minute.

For example:

• Set the min value to 10 days
• Set max value to 20 days
• Time slots are every hour starting at 8AM

If today is January 5 at 10AM, all the slots on before 10AM on Jan 15th become unavailable, even if they aren’t booked.

On the opposite end:

If today is January 5th at 10AM, all the slots on AFTER 11AM on Jan 25th are unavailable. As the time progresses throughout the day today, the slots open up on the 25th.

As a business owner, you want to book as many dates as possible — even when you are setting min/max values.

I would like to see the booking availability go by actual “days’ rather than minutes.

I would be happy to provide further examples and answer any questions.
