We need a form where people need to register for an interview, but we need to ensure a person can select multiple dates (like Dec 7, Dec 9, Dec 11) and times (9 a.m. on Dec 7, 11 a.m. on Dec 7, 3 p.m. on Dec 9 and 2 p.m., 4 p.m. for Dec 11) interview. Also, the next person choosing a date/time cannot select a date and time which has been reserved earlier by someone else. We are running Joomla 3.3.1

Which Joomla extension can do it? I heard Breezing forms would need lot of custom code for this.

    Please be aware that by staying on Joomla 3.3.1, you're putting your users as risk. Please update to Joomla 4.3.5 immediately which fixes an important security vulnerability.

    To avoid any confusions, @Lodder meant to say Joomla 3.4.5 and not 4.3.5 (Joomla 3.4.5 security release)

    And here I was thinking @Lodder was secretly working on J4.3.5 core and the rest of the J dev community was just playing catch up.

  • Thanks Lodder. I tried Akeeba backup to backup the website, but it failed so did not upgrade to 3.4.5. I need to find other free extensions for backing up.

  • Akeeba works fine, it could be an issue with the Akeeba config. If you have issues, reduce the JPA-File size to 49mb, 20, 10 or 2MB. Everytime I had issues, it's all about the file size. You can start another stack question / thread and I will answer in detail. Dec 11, 2015 at 21:41

Please goto http://extensions.joomla.org/ when looking for extensions.

I can think of two extensions- Vik Appointments and OS Services Booking.

Vik Appointments is an extension born to build a complete appointments-scheduler system for your Joomla website. Designed to schedule and organize appointments of any kind, for any kind of service, business that needs to have a reliable availability calendar. Accept reservations online and schedule the appointments for each employee in a smart and efficient way.

OS Services Booking is Joomla online services schedule booking and appointments management. This extension has a lot of great features to make your services booking system helpful with the customers.

Disclaimer: I'm not affiliated with either software maker.


You can do this with most Events plugins. Just call the 'event' an interview. Set the number available for each day/time to 1 and no-one else can 'book' the slot.

Find an events plugin that will allow you to customise the pages/titles as required.

Any form plugin would require a lot of work to achieve the same thing.
