Booking note appearing before booking

since there will always be many things that can’t be done either with the Rentalhive bookings or the marketplace extensions, we all have to wait until features are added to future updates. That is fine, but until updates are available, vendors (owners) should have a better way to inform users (guests) about limitations. Currently I tell them to inform their users/guests about certain limitations in the Description field of their listings.

There is already a feature called Booking note, that allows for vendors to add a note after someone makes a booking. Maybe it could be useful to make that Booking note appear before booking, instead of after. I mean, that note could appear in the booking confirmation page. And it could be a field that users/guests have to mark as read before they can continue to the payment, similar to the usual checkboxes that users have to mark accepting Terms and Conditions before purchasing something.

As a more specific example, one feature request that is already approved but not implemented, is the ability to block certain time slots every day automatically, instead of doing that manually.

Let’s say I offer a tennis lesson by the hour, from 9 AM to 18 PM. But I need to have lunch at 14, so I need to block every day a few time slots, 14-15 and 15-16. So far, the only way to do this is manually day by day, but it is supposed to be in the features to be added in the future.

In the meantime, I would add in the description of my listing something like: - Please do not book between 14 and 16

But many users will not read everything all the time. Then someone will book at 14, and I would have to cancel that booking and explain the user.

Now if I could add the Booking note to the booking confirmation page that appears after selecting a date and clicking on Book Now, then I could force users to read the note (adding a checkbox and making this field required), and I could leave a note like:

  • Please make sure your reservation is not between 14 and 16.
  • Make sure you indicated the amount of people booking
  • Please bring your own racquets
    The checkbox could say:
  • I have read the note

It is far from a perfect solution, but I think it could help avoid many cases of erroneous bookings


Unfortunately, there’s no such feature, it would require a custom implementation. If customizations are required for your site, please try customizing it using the collection of code snippets Search · user:hivepress · GitHub and other developer resources, or consider hiring someone for custom work

Regarding booking note appearing before booking, we checked this issue from our side, and it seems okay. Please make sure you have the latest version of the Bookings extension.


I actually opened this topic under “Feature requests”, but somehow it ended in the “General” topics.

I am not saying that anything is working badly, I am simply requesting to add this as a feature in future updates if possible. The feature is, in short: making the Booking note (or a new field) visible to users before confirming a booking. Please read it again in the context of a feature request.

Could you move this to the feature requests topics?


We moved this topic to general because it is not a feature request, as the functionality you described is very complex and will not be planned for future additions. Regarding booking note appearing before booking, we have already fixed this issue in previous updates, so please update to the latest version of Bookings.
