Enable / Disable Auto-populate the first Delivery Date & Time

Today we will look at a different functionality of Order Delivery Date Pro for WooCommerce plugin which provides ease to the customers in the order process. For the customers who wishes to have delivery as soon as possible would have to select the first available date. But to avoid clicking the calendar and then selecting the date, the first available delivery date and time can be preselected using the auto-populate functionality of this plugin.

In this post, we will see how the first available delivery date and time is preselected in the Delivery Date & Time field on the checkout.

Let us have a look at it:

Auto-populate Delivery Date Settings

In order to enable this function, you need to first go to General Settings -> Additional Settings and enable the Auto-populate first available Delivery Date option by ticking the checkbox as shown below:

Enabling the auto-populate function

After this option is enabled, you can see that the calendar on checkout page shows the first available delivery date automatically selected as shown below:

Calendar on checkout page

Thus, you can see the delivery date is automatically prompted in the delivery calendar on the checkout page. If you want this selected date only for delivery then you don’t need to click on the field and select the date from the calendar. Hence, customer needs no extra efforts in selecting date for delivery of the order.

Alternately, when this option is disabled, the first available delivery date will not be populated automatically. In order to disable this option, go to General Settings -> Additional Settings and untick the Auto-populate option as shown below:

Disabling the auto-populate option

So now if you go to the checkout page, calendar will not auto select the first available delivery date but will ask you to choose the delivery date from the calendar as shown below:
