How to have people register per timeslot

I feel like I am missing something very obvious. We have specific timeslots for our event that we want users to pick a timeslot to register for (so we can limit the # of attendees per slot). Here is my event page: How come there isn’t any way to pick the timeslot? Here is a screenshot of the admin:

Hi there,

Each ticket can be assigned to specific datetimes (they apply to all datetimes by default when created) so if you want registrations for specific times on that event you’d need 3 sets of the tickets you have now ( 3 for 5pm, 3 for 5:30pm and 3 for 6pm)

If you click on the cog icon on a ticket you can select which datetime the ticket applies to.

Thanks for your reply. That is unfortunate. Seems like a very poor user experience: I was hoping the user could pick their time and then their tickets, vs. seeing all of the tickets for the whole day listed. My event runs from 5-8, so I still have 4 other time options to add.

You can go to Event Espresso > Events > Templates and set Show Date & Time Filter? to Maybe. Then the form will include a date & time selector.

Another approach that would greatly simplify & improve the end user experience would be to separate each time slot into its own event. This way the end user can click a date on the calendar, which will take them to a page that will present ticket price options for that time slot only.
