Here is the group component I would like to have installed on my Joomla site http://notyourmotherstaxi.com. It is
similar to a Limousine rental or tour bus site. PM me and I will send a front end password for you to view my current reservation system.
I would like the ability for a group to charter my bus for an hourly rate. Examples would be for prom night, birthday parties, home coming, travel sports teams etc
Set calendar dates rentals are available
Set minimum rental hours
Set Hourly Rate, half day or All Day Rate
Set Extra Hourly Rate ( if rental period extends further than original
Assign Driver (User)
Assign Vehicle #
Assign User as lead contact for administration and payment (users are able to split the fees if needed-bill individual user who has signed up for the reservation)
Contact individuals in group or the group as a whole
Credit user(s) as paid or refund previous payment
User fills in form for reservation (form fields are editable by admin and fields have rollovers which explain what goes in each field. This is also editable by admin)
The form includes:
Address where to pick up passengers...sets a Common Meeting Place as a pick up point.
Enter Pick Up Time
Set Destination address(s), multiple destinations are ok
Set Destination(s) time
Set Destination Event Name
Set Arrive back at Home time
( rental cost is calculated on this information)
Allow lead user to send email to multiple users telling them to sign
up for the group reservation. This could use the already installed
"Community Builder"([url removed, login to view]) feature called "Connections"
Connections allows website users to communicate with other website
users that have given their approval. User should also be able to add
email addresses of people not registered on the site.
(Rental details are automatically filled into an email for user to send. Example: Language of email will be Dear *User*, I have set up a group reservation on [url removed, login to view] for our transportation to *Destination Event Name* . We will be Meeting at *Common Meeting Place* at *Pick Up Time* Please make sure you log onto the website to register for this charter. Note: user can enter more information here.)
Lead User must agree to terms and conditions that are specific to this charter.
Once a user has registered for the group reservation, it would show up on their profile page as a new tab called Group Reservation" This would be a "Community Builder" Tab. It would show them who is in the
group reservation and they can contact individual or the whole group of users who are on the list
A user could also cancel their part of the group reservation. The lead user could cancel the entire group reservation
Payment is through existing paypal api.
