Project Description

Automated Online Booking and Studio Management System. ****Project brief is attached for better layout****

We would like to have an online booking system that is fully automated without any intervention from the business owner or website manager.

The user will select a studio package and any additional add-ons. It will then give them a price and a book now option. Once they have clicked the book now option this will take them to a calendar based management system, where they will be able to see availability on slots. The dates, which have been booked or blocked out by the administrator, will be greyed out and unavailable for the user to select.

Upon choosing a date this will then take them to a page to fill in their personal details (as in section 5 of Front End) and then go through to PayPal, again the PayPal Account can be set in the back end by administrator. Once they have paid, they will be returned to the website displaying a booking page with all of the booking information on it (booking number, date, time, name, address, total cost). This email will also be sent in a confirmation email. Once the payment has been made and the booking confirmation email sent the booking is automatically added to the diary and greyed out on the availability calendar.
