Editing your mobile mechanic order questions

This particular template has the 'Appointment' question type. We are using this to prompt the submitter to choose a day they would prefer to have their vehicle serviced.

You have the option to edit the booking's setup, change your availability, and allow your submitter to choose a time rather than a day.

Furthermore, you can connect your Google Calendar to the Appointments, this will then mark already booked time/day slots as unavailable.
