PriceLabs max 12month spot price - auto update calendar availability?

Pricelabs provides a rolling 365day spot price. Is there a way to have OR unblock each day the new day that has the pricing?

For instance - right now Jan 26 2022 shows a Pricelab spot price that reflect my min rental amount. However Jan 27 is below that (and every other day after) as there is no information from PriceLab updating.

I don't want anyone to see rates for the days past the Pricelab pricing - but also don't want to go in and open my calendar a month at a time in blocks - can you set OR or open blocks as they roll into the 365 day window?

We don't have the ability to do that, but there's an easy workaround - set your default rates to something uncommonly high.

That way, most folks won't book the rates out past what PriceLabs sends you, and if someone does - hey, free money!

You can also set a Booking Window of max 365 days in the future. There are settings for that in the property rules. This will make it so that your calendar is always blocked beyond 365 days from now.
