Push new listing to OTA's but have them not published?

I'm creating a new listing in Ownerrez, and I want activate it so that it will get pushed out to Airbnb and VRBO so that I can preview them, but I don't want them seen by the public yet. Is there a way to do that?

Hi Doug, you can create a new listing in Airbnb and get syncing working but not "activate" it so the public won't see it. That will work for Airbnb, TripAdvisor and Booking.com but not Vrbo. Vrbo does not have a way to hide/show the listing that way. And for Booking.com, the listing has to be created on that side first before mapping the OR side to it. For Air and TA, you can create the listing in OwnerRez and push it over new.

I thought that all changes like this now had to made on OR, and not on the platforms?

Yes, you would create the new Airbnb listing in OwnerRez -- just don't publish it. You will still be able to see it in your Airbnb profile and preview it over there before publishing.
