Booking Appointments for Buddypress users

    @archaicguru

    I can’t believe how hard it is to find something to achieve our goals

    Put simply, I need each buddypress user to have their own calendar and another user can “book” them. Anything to tie into the events manager or at least a way to publicly display the calendar and just a simple “Book Me” button for other users to click

    I don’t need any fancy payment options

    There seem to be a multitude of options available for booking your own site/company, but to book a user (vendor/buddypress member/specific user role) seems near impossible and the very few plugins that claim to do it, don’t. Does anyone have any insight as to how this can be achieved?

    Did you try this?
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/appointment-scheduling-and-booking-manager/

    What you need is not a simple plugin.
    You may need a commercial solution or to hire a developer to write custom code.

    Were you able to come up with a solution? I am looking for something similar.

    I would love to know that too. Let us know if the plugin from shanebp worked for you. Thank you.

    Thanks for posting, somehow I missed @frangdelsolar response so this reply is for both of your questions:

    Short & Simple.. ok yea – it worked, but was very limited and buggy

    We then hired 5 different programmers off upwork that swore they could make a custom calendar plugin better

    Then we looked into custom buddypress development costs. Wow – you could have built anything from scratch for those prices.

    The particular project I was the project manager but the funding ran out, but I sank a year of my life into it so I do still remember parts of that dilemma and the solutions that were in the works – if you wish to more – send me a msg

    I do have 20 years experience in the business and have a good idea of which plugins work well together and which ones waste your time. If you let me know what your site is about and how you need a calendar to be integrated, I’ll see if I can point you in the right direction

    @archaicguru I’m so sorry to hear your funding ran out. I’m a Project Controller and know how quickly budgets run out!

    I’d love to take you up on your kind offer of offering some advice. I’m self-funding a site where users need to be able to book one another for free. Is it best if I post here or send you a personal message?

    Thank you
    Anna

    Hello everyone, I don’t know if I understood correctly, but by bookable users, you mean that they can create a profile like a mini CV (photo, video, sound) and that another user can book it? with a reservation payment?

    Yes, A BuddyPress user should be showcasing his availability so the other BuddyPress users can avail of his services in his specified time. Does anyone get a solution?
