Proposed features/Opening hours: standard appointment syntax
|Opening hours: standard appointment syntax|
|Proposal status:||Draft (under way)|
|Definition:||syntax element |
Modify opening_hours=* to define
appointment meaning "appointment necessary".
The formal specification can be updated by adding this rule: <rule_modifier> → appointment [
<comment> ] → appointment
Businesses working with appointments are very common. Currently this has to be expressed with comments. In taginfo we can see
by appointment and
on appointment are commonly in use.
appointment was chosen instead of
on_appointment because the author of this proposal always forgets which one is the more common expression.
Standardizing this will make it possible for software to take this information into account and e.g. show it in different locales.
