WooCommerce Bookings – Available Date Drop Down Instead of Date Picker

Our client runs hundreds of courses, across more than 20 locations. I’ve had to set up the same course for every venue. They only have one available start date per month for each course and location. It would be great to have the option to display a drop down list of available dates, rather than a very empty calendar.

    Depends on the context. In my case (tour company) having the customer view the available dates on a calendar form helps them visualize their week and get organized. Having said that I do use a plugin with google calendar that shows upcoming tours as a list but only on the sidebar

    AGREE COMPLETELY! WE NEED THIS! YES PLEASE! THANK YOU! = “It would be great to have the option to select available dates from a drop down, instead of a date picker.” Is this very popular suggested feature on the product update roadmap? If so, when can we expect an WooCommerce Bookings plugin update?

    ‘This is a very important feature for better user experience.

    In our case, at the end of a year we begin to set up products for next year. I have a few products in which the first bookable slot begins only in April. So on the frontend, the datepicker is greyed out from Dec to April. My customer assumed that my website was bugged and the datepicker was not working, not knowing that the date was available for selection in the April datepicker.

    For such products, we have set up a product in the following manner:
    Under the General tab:
    – Booking Duration: Fixed Blocks of 12 days
    Under the Availability tab:
    – All dates are ‘not-available by default’
    – Added 8 custom date start and end date ranges, each lasting for 12 days.

    It would be great if we have a checkbox option to ‘show dropdown list’ instead of a calendar-datepicker. Data can be derived from the data ranges defined above. And on the front end teh user can select a date range from the ranges defined (which is 8 of them in our case).
