calendar sync- how many days in advance allowed to book

I will try to explain my question. On AirBNB and VRBO you can set how far in advance at a minimum renter is allowed to book., I have it set at 1 day, which means that today potential renter can book for tomorrow (1 day) but not for today (same day).

I would really like to change it to 2 advance notice days on AirBNb and VRBO, because of the delayed communications there. BUT what happens is that calendar sync blocks the dates (that are technically available) on my OR calendar ( used on m own website) where I actually can take next day bookings. Is there a way around it? i guess probably no...

To fix this, set the calendar imports to import bookings only. We actually force Airbnb imports to bookings only because of this exact issue -- their feeds don't include enough info to tell what is a block vs what is a rule.
