Extension for Meeting Room/Resource Booking

Post by EJ_sps » Tue Nov 16, 2021 12:58 am

Hello,
I have searched the forums Extensions Directory and haven't found something that suits my use case and was hoping for some guidance.

I was looking for a scheduling/booking extension that allow our users to reserve conference rooms, equipment etc. I have tried a couple of extensions VikServices and OS Services Booking that had most of what I was looking for, but they both lacked the core functionality I needed as they were built for "Service" based use cases.

User must be able to select the duration and the start/end time for their reservation. A reservation could be 15minutes or it could be multiple days. All of the current extensions seem to be targeted toward preconfigured time slots.

It seems that having a meeting room/equipment reservation system would be a fairly common type of use case and there surely must be some extension in this space.

Any pointers are greatly appreciated.

I would use a calendar solution that has event booking - something like dpcalendar

I am looking for the same: Allow visitors to book resources (rooms or other stuff).

Basically the same as "wpbookingcalendar" does for Wordpress. I would like to use Joomla though.

I know. I am asking for advice/hands-on experience. As far as I can see they either don't provide what I want (see OP), are far too complex and therefore also too expensive.

I only have one venue, visitors should be able to place reservations (start date, end date) using an online form (no online payment) on a website - without having to login. Display the reservations as a list (calendar is optional). Admin should be able to confirm and edit reservations, including various mails for each step.
