convert blocked dates to booking

Can't remember if I've asked about this before - when I convert a blocked period to a booking, it doesn't seem to trigger the usual 'create booking' triggers.

Can that be fixed?

It's not a huge problem because it's rare, but maybe it's an easy code fix. I rely on triggers when bookings are created to send certain information to another database where I can help track upcoming cleanings and whether I've properly set the custom field for keycodes.

Yes, right now it only runs either blocked off time created or booking created triggers. The booking isn't actually created when converted from a block (the number stays the same), just turned from a block to a booking.

Is there a reason you're going block -> booking instead of just creating a booking right off?

@Chris Hynes - I typically block on VRBO first when I *think* I have a trip planned for myself or family (daughter lives nearby a condo). So once I set it as blocked on VRBO, it soon syncs via ical to OR. Then some day(s) later I will convert the block to a booking. Actually, before I realized that was possible I was going back to VRBO and deleting the block, then waiting on ical sync and was always worried about a guest jumping in. But in hindsight I think I could have left the block on VRBO and just deleted the block in OR and proceeded with a new booking.

It's not a huge thing, I'll just have to do some manual steps whenever I do this.
