How to Display Booked Items on the User Account Page

How to Display Booked Items on the User Account Page

Find out how to display bookings made by the current user on the user account page created with JetEngine.

Before you start, check the tutorial requirements:

Using the JetEngine plugin, it is possible to query the created bookings by the current user and display them as a listing on the User Account page.

Once the user makes a booking on the site, information about this booking will appear in the user account, where the user can track the booking status. 

This tutorial covers creating a custom column to store the user ID, configuring the custom query, and displaying the query results in a listing.

Create a Column for Storing the User ID

The custom query that will be set up further will require the ID of the user who submitted the booking. By default, this data is not stored in the JetBooking columns, so it is necessary to create a dedicated column. 

Navigate to the WordPress Dashboard > Bookings > Settings > Tools tab. Add a new column by pressing the “New DB Column” button. Give a name to the column – “user_id.”

After that, click the “Update Booking Tables” button. Now, a new column in the database is created. It will store the user’s ID after submitting the booking form.

Add a Form Field to Fetch the User ID

In the following steps, we will add a form field for fetching the ID of a user who made the booking and map it with the “user_id” column created previously.

Adjusting the booking form created with the JetFormBuilder plugin

If the booking form was set up with the JetFormBuilder plugin, find the form in the WordPress Dashboard  > JetFormBuilder > Forms tab and edit it. 

Add a new Hidden Field block. Select the “Current User ID” option as the FIELD VALUE. The field will fetch the ID of the currently logged-in user.

Proceed to the Post Submit Actions section of the JetForm tab and click the pencil-shaped button to edit the “Apartment Booking” action. 

In the DB COLUMNS MAP section, map the previously created “user_id” column with the new Hidden field by inserting the name of the Hidden field into the corresponding input field.

Click the “Update” button to save the action settings and update the form. 

As a result, the ID of the user who submitted the form will be saved to the “user_id” column in the booking database.

Warning

Be aware that this is a legacy form builder functionality that will be updated only for critical bug fixes, so we recommend setting up the booking form with the JetFormBuilder plugin for the latest updates with the new form features.

If the booking form was set up with the Forms (Legacy) module of JetEngine, find the form in the WordPress Dashboard  > JetEngine > Formstab and proceed to edit it.

Add a new field of a “Hidden” Type. Select the “Current User ID” option as the Field Value. The field will fetch the ID of the currently logged-in user. 

Click the “Apply Changes” button to save the result.

Proceed to the Post-submit Actions / Notifications Settings section of the form editing screen and click the pencil-shaped button to edit the “Apartment booking” action. 

In the DB columns map section, map the previously created “user_id” column with the new Hidden field by entering the name of the Hidden field into the specific input field.

Click the “Apply Changes” button to save the action settings and update the form. 

As a result, the ID of the user who submitted the form will be saved to the “user_id” column in the booking database.

Testing the form

Let’s test the form by making a sample booking. 

Navigate to the front-end view of the site and find the page where the form is located. Fill out the form and submit it.

After making a test booking, return to WordPress Dashboard and proceed to Bookings > Bookings. Find the created booking and click the “Edit” button or info icon.

Check the “user_id” column: it should contain the ID of the user who made the booking.

Configure a Custom Query to Display Booked Items

The custom query will filter bookings made by the current user and allow to display the results as a listing. 

Head to WordPress Dashboard > JetEngine > Query Builder and click the “Add New” button to create a new query. 

Name the query and select the “JetBooking Query” Query Type.

JetBooking Query settings

This type of query returns all bookings created on the site. Using different query settings, you can narrow down the result. To learn more about these settings, proceed to the JetBooking Query Type in the Query Builder Overview.

To display only the list of bookings created by the current user, move to the body of the query and, in the Columns Query section, hit the “Add New” button to add a new query clause. Now, let’s compare the previously created “user_id” column to the ID of the currently logged-in user. 

In the clause settings, select the “user_id” Column. Then, choose the “Equal (=)” comparison operator in the Compare drop-down menu. On the right side of the Value input field, click the coin-stack icon and select the “Current User ID” macro.

You can enable the Preview Results toggle to check how the query narrows the results.

Now, the query retrieves only those bookings created by the current user. Configure other custom query settings and push the “Add/Update” query button.

Create a Listing to Display Bookings

The next step is to create and style the Listing template for the bookings on the User Account. The Listing template can be made with either Elementor or WordPress block editor.

Building a Listing template in the Elementor editor

Navigate to the WordPress Dashboard > JetEngine > Listings tab and press the “Add New” button to add a new template.

In the Setup Listing Item window, select “Query Builder” as the Listing source; then, select the custom query created in the previous step and give the listing a name. 

Finally, select “Elementor” for the Listing view if you build the website with Elementor and click the “Create Listing Item” button.

Now, it is time to customize the listing template for the booked items. You are free to display any column retrieved by the custom query. In our example, we will display the booking ID and status, linked title of the booked instance, dates, number of guests, and user information. All of this data will be displayed with the Dynamic Field widget.

First, drag and drop a Dynamic Field widget to the editing area. Select the “Post/Term/User/Object Data” as the Source. In the Object Field drop-down menu, scroll until you see the JetBooking section and pick the “Booking ID” option.

To include additional text to this value, enable the Customize field output toggle and customize the format area. For example, we typed “Booking ID: %s” into the Field format.

Now, the listing displays the booking ID. Similarly, add the status of the booking.

Add a new Dynamic Field widget or duplicate the existing one. Repeat the above steps to display the “Status” option and format it.

To display the name of the booked property (post title), add another Dynamic Field widget and select the “Booked Instance ID” option as the Object Field. The value of this option is the post ID.

To transform it into a linked title, enable the Filter field output toggle and select the “Get post/page link” Callback. This callback formats the value and outputs the name of the post instead of its ID. Also, you can display just a post title without a link, post URL, and post thumbnail with callbacks. Learn more in the Display post and term titles, links, and URLs chapter of the Dynamic Field Widget Overview.

Now, it is time to display the booked dates. Add two Dynamic Field widgets: one showing the “Check In Date” option and the other displaying the “Check Out Date” option. These options contain the check-in and check-out dates in the timestamp format. 

To convert the timestamp to a human-readable date, activate the Filter field output toggle and choose the “Format Date” callback. Don’t forget to define the date format according to the Customizing the Time and Date Format documentation.

You can also display values from the additional JetBookings table columns added in the Bookings > Settings > Tools tab. For that, add another Dynamic Field and select the “Additional column: …” option. For example, in our case, we picked the “Additional column: guest” Object Field.

The “user_id” column contains the user ID that can be transformed into the default user information.

Add a Dynamic Field, select the “Additional column: user_id” option for the Object Field, enable the Filter field output toggle, and set the “Get user data by ID” Callback. This callback retrieves default user fields by the user ID. Choose any desired option in the User Data to get drop-down menu.

That’s it for the main settings. Experiment with styling to achieve the best design for the listing. Once finished, don’t forget to update the changes.

Creating a Listing template in the WordPress block editor (Gutenberg)

Navigate to the WordPress Dashboard > JetEngine > Listings tab and press the “Add New” button to add a new template.

For the Listing source, select “Query Builder.” Then, pick the custom query created in the previous step and give the listing a name. Lastly, choose “Blocks (Gutenberg)” for the Listing view if you build the website with the WordPress block editor and click the “Create Listing Item” button.

Now, customize the listing template to display the booked items. You are free to display any column retrieved by the custom query. In our example, we will show the booking ID and status, linked title of the booked instance, dates, number of guests, and user information by using the Dynamic Field block.

First, drag and drop a Dynamic Field block to the editing area. Pick a “Post/Term/User/Object Data” in the SOURCE field. In the POST OBJECT drop-down menu, scroll down to the JetBooking section and pick the “Booking ID” option.

To add text to this value, enable the Customize field output toggle and customize the format area. For example, we typed “Booking ID: %s” into the Field format.

Now, the listing displays the booking ID. Next, let’s add the status of the booking.

Add a new Dynamic Field block or duplicate the existing one. Repeat the above steps to display the “Status” option and format it.

To display the name of the booked property (post title), add another Dynamic Field block and select the “Booked Instance ID” option as the POST OBJECT. The value of this option is the post ID. 

To transform it into a linked title, enable the Filter field output toggle and select the “Get post/page link” Callback. This callback formats the value and outputs the name of the post instead of its ID. Also, you can display just a post title without a link, post URL, and post thumbnail with callbacks. Learn more about that in the Display post and term titles, links, and URLs.

Now, it is time to display the booked dates. Add two Dynamic Field blocks: one showing the “Check In Date” option and the other displaying the “Check Out Date” option. These options contain the check-in and check-out dates in a timestamp format.

To format the timestamp as a human-readable date, activate the Filter field output toggle and choose the “Format DateCallback. Don’t forget to define the date format according to the Customizing the Time and Date Format documentation.

The “user_id” column contains the user ID that can be transformed into the default user information.

Add a Dynamic Field, select the “Additional column: user_id” option for the POST OBJECT, enable the Filter field output toggle, and set the “Get user data by ID” Callback. This callback retrieves default user fields by the user ID. Choose any desired option in the User Data to get drop-down menu.

That’s it for the main settings. To style the blocks, use the free JetStyleManager plugin. Once finished, don’t forget to update the changes.

Display the Booked Items Listing on the Account Page

The last part of our work is to display the created listing on the user’s Account page set with the JetEngine Profile Builder feature. We will create a new subpage template and place the Listing Grid widget or block inside.

Showing the listing in Elementor

Firstly, create a new “Page” template in the WordPress Dashboard > Templates > Add New tab under the Elementor.

This template will be responsible for displaying the account subpage with the list of booked items. 

In the Elementor editor, find the Listing Grid widget and place it on the template. Choose the Listing option created previously.

These settings are enough to display the bookings of the current user as a listing. To adjust the rest of the settings, check the Listing Grid Widget Overview

Once done with the styling, hit the “Publish/Update” button to save the changes and return to the WordPress Dashboard. 

Now, apply the created template in the Profile Builder. Navigate to the JetEngine > Profile Builder > Account Page tab and click the “Add New Subpage button to add a new subpage for users’ bookings. 

Give a title to this subpage and attach the template created previously. Click the “Save button.
