    Request an interview

    Hi All,

    I'm looking to add a feature on my website where visitors can request an interview at a certain time. I've done a quick google and seen many a few things like room booking systems (for hotels mainly).

    I realise this would probably be beyond my coding ability so I was wondering if any one knew of any open source scripts etc. What I need it to do is:

    - Show all the dates in the years (by month)
    - Have the calendar show each hourly time slot e.g. 14.00-15.00 etc.
    - Show when interviews are already scheduled
    - When a slot is free, allow the users to select that time slot

    Not got a clue how to even start such a thing! Can anybody get me going on this?

    Many thanks

    Check into google calendars.
    They can be embedded in your site, and I'm pretty sure they have most of that functionality.

    And ... it's FREE!

    Thanks for your reply, this is what I'm taking about but I think it had a couple of issues.

    It seems to me like they have no restrictions on them. Therefore if i was to place this on my website then anyone would be able to put them self in for an interview without it being approved by me!

    It also looks like you can drag appointments around etc.

    Not sure if there are ways to change this!

    I have recently created such a script (w w w . t h e m o b i l e m a k e o v e r . c o m).
    There are things you must take into consideration. How long the interview initially would take, opening hours, saturday and sunday bookings, bot invasions (would suggest signup and login feature before able to book), time collisions and terms and conditions. Think about it before you go in all guns blazing.

    Hi Phil,

    The URL doesn't seem to work

    The interview booking system will certainly be sitting behind a secure login area as a bare minimum!

    Just don't really know where to begin with a task this large!

    Cheers

    Don't worry, I just want to see the functionally of it etc.

    Much appreciated!

    Still no sign of any login details... perhaps I mistyped my email address?

    Yep thats correct but would you mind deleting it, just incase people start spamming?

    Thanks, still no details... do you have a demo account I could use or something similar?

    Hi Phil,

    I've had a look around that... very nice!

    Is almost exactly what I'm looking to build. Did you build this yourself or was it open source?
