There are some businesses where the Delivery Time is mandatory to be selected along with the Delivery Date on the checkout page.

For example, you have online baby nutrition food shop were you deliver food for different month duration like 5 to 10 months foodstuff, 11 to 15 months foodstuff, 16 to 24 months foodstuff etc. Here you want that your customers should choose the delivery time from the pre-added time slots along with the delivery date on which they want the delivery.

You can setup this under Order Delivery Date -> General Settings -> Time Slot.
