As great as our new Reviews feature is, we knew from the moment we released it that we would have to follow it up with some tools to help get reviews into the system faster.
Manual entry sucks! You don't want to have manually copy/paste every review you get into OwnerRez, so we set out designing ways of making it easier. To that end, we have two big things to announce.
You can now import reviews in bulk using Excel.
The import screen is similar to, and located near, the other import screens and pretty self-explanatory. Take a look at this support article for all the details:
But even though you can import via Excel, that still means you have to manually fill in the Excel spreadsheet, right? That's where the next part comes in!
Introducing the new "Vacation Rental Tools" lab project!
For awhile now, we've been dreaming up a way of providing better tools and tighter integration with listing sites while not having to wait on listing sites to develop that access on their own.
"Vacation Rental Tools" is our answer to that problem. It's a Chrome extension you can install in your browser that will provide you extra features for the listing sites you work with. And it's free for everyone to use whether you're an OwnerRez customer or not!
Visit the new website at http://VacationRental.tools or take a look at these support articles:
- Vacation Rental Tools - Overview
- Vacation Rental Tools - How To Get & Use It
- Vacation Rental Tools - The Tools
If you use TripAdvisor, you'll be able to use Vacation Rental Tools to download an Excel file of all your TripAdvisor reviews in a click of a button.
Hundreds of reviews moved from TripAdvisor to OwnerRez in just a few seconds. Awesome, right?!
Get ready for more great browser tools coming to Vacation Rental Tools and help us spread the word!
