comment Time slot selection
It is possible that it turns out that selecting days and hours cannot be combined in one component. I don't know, but currently it sounds logical to me that it would work. In the case of a hotel reservation it is basically a timespan too (e.g. 14:00 - 11:00). Any appointment is in the end, no? And thanks for mentioning these principles, that helps.

I'm afraid that is not an answer to the question. I'm asking about a concept of presenting available time slots in a user-friendly way. Your answer is about a specific implementation and its technology.

The obvious solution would be something like: link (it is in french, but it's about the visualization of the week and free slots). That offers the functionality required, but there are immediately 3 things that bother me: 1) in many cases, there is many times more unused (grey) space compared space used for the actual available time slots 2) in a situation the company has 10min-slots and almost all slots are available on a given day, the list gets endless 3) on mobile devices, this is just not practical

@JimmyBreck-McKye I can be clear about that: the other providers are not an option. It is only the first option that is valid: if the preferred time is not available, an adjacent time or a different day will be the next best thing for the end user.

@JimmyBreck-McKye: thank you for your feedback. An example usage is a patient booking an appointment with a doctor. But appointments can be 2 full day selections too (e.g. nights at a hotel). Only available slots are shown. So changes are not necessary. About adjacency you might be right: priority #1 is user friendliness, but priority #2 is indeed privacy (of the company's calendar). I hope that answers your questions?
