how to create a waiting list for an appointment in php with codeigniter...any guide please

Recommended Answers

That's a little vague. Guide to using CI, or more info on your waiting list (which requires much more information), or both? CI tutorials are all over the web, searching does wonders.

You can do it by creating a status column in your database; such that when an appointment is made, for instance; you can set the status to 1 for pending or 2 for completed or 3 for cancelled.

That should do the trick.

Add a timestamp too, then you can query who cancelled first.

You can get better information if you try explaining your requirements in more than a single line.

I want create a waiting list for students who have registered for school and are waiting to be placed.
There should be a waiting list, maybe for 1-30 students and from that list i manage to place only 10.
If I managed to place 1-10 that means am left 20, after that i want that student who was number 11 now to be number 1 because the first 10 have gone.

I hope you understand what am trying to say.

Thank you in advance.

Start your own thread if not directly related to the OP.

However, you just have a flag field (as noted above) for 'waiting', 'placed' (or 0,1) and a timestamp or datetime for when the student made the application. Simple.

SELECT * FROM `students` WHERE `status` = 0 ORDER BY  `app_time` LIMIT 20
