We have seen how to setup delivery date and time using time slots for specific dates and weekdays. When you setup different time slots to show when the delivery is available, there is a new option set for the customers for selection of the earliest time available. The option is named As Soon As Possible, which appears in the available time slots on the checkout page.
How this works?
There are instances when you need the delivery of goods as early as possible due to time constraints or any specific need. At that time, this setting helps the customers to fulfill the requirement. To set it up, go to Order Delivery Date -> Settings -> General Settings -> Time Slot as shown below:

As you can see above, the Show ‘As Soon As Possible’ option is enabled by ticking the checkbox. This will add a new option in the dropdown of Time Slot field on the checkout page as shown below:
