    Default HOW TO: Add a desired shipping date field to order form [description]

    Desciption how to add a drop down list with desired delivery date to your order form [for Zen Cart 1.3.7]

    Note: in the following description I use the table prefix zen_
    If you have no prefix, or another then you'll have to change it yourself.
    The file & directory names were taken from a local Win XP + XAMPP environment. At linux webhosting all "\" should be the other way "/"

    Note2: I have to check the email confirmation.
    The desired order date seems to be missing in the email confirmation.

    1. Add field to zen_orders table
    Code:
     ALTER TABLE zen_orders ADD order_delivery_date date AFTER ip_address;

    * FRONT-END *


    2. tpl_checkout_shipping_default.php
    File: includes\templates\classic\templates\tpl_checkout_shipping_default.php
    In the checkout form I added a dropdown field with dates.
    Note that I excluded some dates (1st & 2nd Christmas day and 1st January) because there won't be any deliveries.
    Just before <fieldset class="shipping" id="comments"> I added:

    Code:
    <fieldset class="shipping" id="delivery_date">
    <legend><?php echo TABLE_HEADING_DELIVERY_DATE; ?></legend>
    <select name="delivery_date">
    <?php
    for ($i=0, $n=50; $i < $n; $i++) {
        $now[$i] = strtotime ("+$i day", time());
        if ( strftime ("%w",$now[$i])<>0
            AND strftime ("%m-%d",$now[$i])<>"12-25"
            AND strftime ("%m-%d",$now[$i])<>"12-26"
            AND strftime ("%m-%d",$now[$i])<>"01-01"
        ){
            echo '<option value="'.strftime ("%Y-%m-%d",$now[$i]).'">'.strftime ("%A %d %B %Y",$now[$i]).'</option>';
        }
    }
    ?>
    </select>
    </fieldset>
    3. order.php
    File: \includes\classes\order.php
    I added the order_delivery_date field in some queries:

    Ok, I had to make a couple of additional changes in order to get the confirmation email with date working correctly!
    Sorry for the confusion!

    BTW: The email sent from the back-end (in admin/orders.php e.g. after change of status) does not contain the date.
    Instead there's an empty space....
    Hopefully does someone else know a solution...


    19. orders in back-end
    File: \admin\orders.php
    Code:
              // adjust download_maxdays based on current date
              $check_status = $db->Execute("select customers_name, customers_email_address, orders_status,
                                          date_purchased, order_delivery_date from " . TABLE_ORDERS . "
                                          where orders_id = '" . $_GET['oID'] . "'");
    changed into:
    Code:
              // adjust download_maxdays based on current date
              $check_status = $db->Execute("select customers_name, customers_email_address, orders_status,
                                          date_purchased from " . TABLE_ORDERS . "
                                          where orders_id = '" . $_GET['oID'] . "'");
    20. the front-end order class
    File: includes\classes\order.php
    Code:
        $sql_data_array = array('orders_id' => $insert_id,
                                'orders_status_id' => $this->info['order_status'],
                                'date_added' => 'now()',
                                'order_delivery_date' => $this->info['order_delivery_date'],
                                'customer_notified' => $customer_notification,
                                'comments' => $this->info['comments']);
    changed into
    Code:
        $sql_data_array = array('orders_id' => $insert_id,
                                'orders_status_id' => $this->info['order_status'],
                                'date_added' => 'now()',
                                'customer_notified' => $customer_notification,
                                'comments' => $this->info['comments']);

    Thanks for posting this. I know alot of zenners have been waiting for someone to work this one out! I have a few questions.

    1. In #10 the file mentioned \includes\languages\english\orders.php - I don't have that file, but I do have that file in the admin directory (admin\\includes\languages\english\orders.php). Is that the one you mean?
    2. How would I remove Saturday as a shipping date?
    3. Would it be possible to add a Cancel date as well? Most wholesale companies have that.
    4. Will you be also adding the field to Account history order page that a customer sees when they are logged in and looking at their orders?

    Yes, I do indeed mean the language file in \admin\
    thank you for your correction!

    How would I remove Saturday as a shipping date?
    You'll have to change the part strftime ("%A %d %B %Y",$now[$i])
    in the file tpl_checkout_shipping_default.php (See step 2. Front-end )
    Remove the "%A" because it displays the "full weekday name according to the current locale" (see the php.net documentation for strftime at http://php.net/manual/en/function.strftime.php )

    Would it be possible to add a Cancel date as well? Most wholesale companies have that.
    Probably. I don't know this functionality. Maybe you could elaborate on this: how should a cancel date be implemented in the order process, and how does it work?

    Will you be also adding the field to Account history order page that a customer sees when they are logged in and looking at their orders?
    I haven't found the time for that yet.

    A cancel date is usually coupled with a ship date in wholesale orders. That is - it is a window of time where the purchase can be shipped within. I guess it would just be a second field very much like order_delivery_date, but it would be order_cancel_date.

    The only difference I see between the two fields would be that order_cancel_date could not take place before order_delivery_date. One other option in the drop down for order_cancel_date and should default to is empty which would indicate no cancel date. That would make sense for orders that are not wholesale and/or do not require a cancel ship date.
    Thanks, again!

    Does anyone have a site that this mod is working on so I can see how it works?

    I've tried this on 3.7.8 but it doesn't work.
    Anyone tried this before?

    Thanks

    Based on this post and some others, I've posted net terms, start order date and start and cancel order date modules. You can find out more at Zen Cart Purchase Order System
