Accessing Field Configuration

  • Navigate to WooCommerce: Within your WordPress dashboard, locate the WooCommerce menu and click on it.
  • Access Settings: Click on Settings within the WooCommerce menu.
  • Find Custom Checkout Fields: Look for a section labeled Custom Checkout Fields (or similar wording based on your plugin version). Click on it to access the plugin’s settings.
  • Individual Field Tabs: Locate the tab for the specific custom field you want to configure (e.g., Field #1, Field #2). Click on the relevant tab.

Timepicker Type Options

If you’ve chosen the “Timepicker” field type, you’ll find a dedicated section for configuring time selection.

  • Time format: Select a valid time format from the provided options (e.g., 24-hour format or 12-hour format with AM/PM). Refer to the plugin’s documentation or timepicker options page for specific format details.
  • Interval (minutes): Define the increment at which users can select times. For example, setting an interval of 15 minutes allows users to choose 9:00 AM, 9:15 AM, 9:30 AM, and so on.

Time Restrictions

You can set boundaries for time selection using these options.

  • Min time (HH:MM format): Define the earliest selectable time (e.g., “09:00” for 9 AM).
  • Max time (HH:MM format): Define the latest selectable time (e.g., “17:00” for 5 PM).

Input Options (Optional)

Some plugins might offer additional options for controlling user input within the timepicker field.

  • Max length: Set a maximum number of characters allowed for the time input.
  • Min value: (Not applicable for timepickers)
  • Max value: (Not applicable for timepickers)
  • Step: (Not applicable for timepickers) – These options are typically used for numeric field types.

Advanced User Interaction

You might also find options for enhancing user interaction with the timepicker.

  • Autofocus (Enable/Disable): Enable this option to automatically focus on the timepicker field when the customer reaches it on the checkout page.
  • Autocomplete: Disable autocomplete functionality if it interferes with the timepicker’s behavior.

Benefits of Configured Timepickers

By strategically configuring these Timepicker options, you can achieve several benefits.

  • Streamlined Scheduling: Providing a timepicker allows customers to easily choose preferred delivery or appointment times.
  • Improved Order Accuracy: Clear time selection reduces ambiguity and ensures accurate scheduling for your operations.
  • Enhanced User Experience: Offering time selection empowers customers and provides a more convenient checkout process.

Conclusion

The Custom Checkout Fields for WooCommerce plugin empowers you to create a user-friendly time selection experience with Timepicker fields. By leveraging these configuration options and exploring your plugin’s specific features, you can streamline scheduling, improve order accuracy, and ultimately enhance customer satisfaction.
