Module/Extension for active visitors

Post by nickbrec » Wed Nov 23, 2022 7:34 pm

Ok, thanks in advance for the help. I'm working on a project for a client that operates a "Doggy Day Care" business. They want me to develop a web-based system for tracking what clients (dogs) are currently in the facility.

Basically, a single-page interface where the employee clicks on a empty slot, enters the Client's name, dog's name and basic contact information and perhaps even a photo of the dog that can be uploaded via .jpg or whatever. When "log in" or whatever button is clicked, it will allow you to enter that information and then is stamped with that time.

When the client checks-out, you click another button and it ends their time and reports that total time they were there for billing purposes that can maybe be exported to a spreadsheet or something.

I've attached the "concept" the client gave me. Again, thank you very much. I'm looking for a Joomla module or plugin that would accomplish this. Thank you!

That could be done with a 'booking' system (which may also integrate payment and invoicing). If it's from the employee perspective, they could see a calendar (or some other type of list) that shows the bookings for the day/week or month etc.

From the dog-owner perspective, they could log in and see when their pets are booked in.

Joomla Bookings & Schedules extensions or Joomla Invoicing/Accounting Extensions

Or simpler than that, use a web-form builder, so you can customise and build your own forms with the data you want to collect. The "bookings" could then be viewed from the Administrator side.

Joomla Form Builder Extensions

If you needed a "photo gallery" then try Joomla photo gallery extensions

I don't know if you're going to find one that could incorporate all these features in one; these are just ideas and not recommedations.

While any or all the above could help collect the data, Custom tables extension may help you produce an on-screen layout that suits you as your illustration above. This may be more complex if you're not a familiar Joomla user.

There is no Joomla extension that meets all the conditions described. This must be done from scratch.

My advice. Since your description I do not see the conditions for integration with Joomla, make this project in Ruby on Rails. This framework is perfect for your task. It will be very easy and inexpensive.
