Show Package Item Not Available When Add On Items Out of Stock
I have multiple packages that I offer. Each item within the package is required and the Qty cannot be changed.
40 Person Tent Rental Package
- 1 Tent
- 4 Tables
- 40 Chairs
If there are only 35 chairs available to rent, I would like the entire package to show not available. Currently, on the calendar the package will be shown as available, and once you get to the product package page, add to cart isn't and option and the message says "only 35 available"
Any suggestions how I can make the package unavailable on the calendar if 1 of the items isn't available?
I too have exactly the same requirement.
We have canoe trips where availability is limited by a) no of canoes which is our primary inventoried allocation AND b) no of seats on a minbus.
When we've run out of seats on the bus we can't take any more bookings, even though the calendar will show green as available (because we have canoes).
It's not the end of the world, but does create phone calls from confused customers when the season picks up.
I first reported this problem nearly 7 years ago so Checkfront support is aware of the problem. Here's what they told me at the time:
Thank you for contacting us! I tested your item and was able to reproduce your issue. The required package item is sold out which makes the item unavailable. That said, I've passed this issue onto our developers for further investigation. [September 2015]
Our developers see it more as an improvement needed than a bug and I'll update you when it has been fixed. Please let us know if you have any further questions. [October 2015]
