JetBooking: How to Customize Booking Settings

From this tutorial, you will learn how to customize a booking form in the Booking settings.

Use settings in the JetBooking plugin to customize your booking form any way you need it. You’ll be able to add columns, custom labels, hide DB columns manager, enable iCal synchronization, and hide Set-Up Wizard. Also, there’s an opportunity to update the required DB tables.

Now, let’s have a closer look at all settings.

General Booking Settings

Follow to the Bookings > Settings to customize your booking form.
In the General settings section, you can add columns. Here we see columns we’ve already created with a quick set up.

Let’s have a closer look at all other fields in the General section:

  • Booking orders post type – here you can select post type related for creating booking records.
  • Column name – in this field you can give a name for an additional DB column.
  • Booking instance post type – select post type related for booked instances.

Please note that those three fields should be filled out, so you’ll be able to get the Units manager section in your CPT.

  • Booking Period – now you’re able to choose the booking period. For example, if you select Per nights, then the last booked date will be not included; if you select Per days option, then the last booked date will be included.
  • Weekly bookings – by enabling this option you activate only full week booking.
  • One Day bookings – with this option checked only single days bookings are allowed.
  • WooCommerce integration – enable this option to connect booking with WooCommerce checkout.

The Labels block provides an opportunity to add the custom labels to the booking form, such as the Booked dates tooltip text, Text before selected date range, weekdays, etc.

Customizing the labels for the booking form


Now let’s have a look at the Advanced settings block. Here you can Hide DB columns manager and Hide Set Up Wizard.

If you turn the Enable iCal synchronization toggle on you will be asked to set the Calendar synch interval and Calendar sync start. Besides that, a new option will appear in the Booking submenu. It is called Calendars and it stores a table of events. In that tab, you will be able to synchronize the events from the calendar with the items on the website.

DB Tables

The last block is DB Tables where you update required DB tables.

We recommend saving the table’s structure only after you are sure that everything was done correctly and suits your needs. Otherwise, if any changes are still needed, you’ll have to navigate to your database and drop the table. Only after that, you can save a completely new table.

Congrats! Now we are ready to create a booking form!
