I would like to be able to allow exceptions to gap night and minimum or maximum night rules on a specific dates basis.

For example, I have been having my minimum nights set to 2 nights, with a rule that 1 night gaps are not allowed. But this week on one property I have three nights in a row open, and so if someone wants to book two nights they can't, and then I can't fill the single night open based on my rule, if I want to get all those nights filled.

With the ability to make exceptions on a specific dates basis, I can potentially fill all three nights or only two of them last minute more so than now, when I can't bend the rules in this one case. Instead, what I have to do is temporarily change the rules to try to get these nights filled. But this opens the door to other dates down the calendar getting unwanted one-night gaps and one-night stays.

This is already planned to be added.

I would suggest, for similar last minute situations, to also be able to overrule the booking window rules.

For instance, I have a standard 3-day booking window to be able to prepare the house, but if I have the house ready and I want to put 1 night on the market for the next day, I would like to be able to overrule that for that particular date.

Thank you

PriceLabs has a feature to dynamically adjust your night gaps based on criteria you set.

Don't get it for that feature alone, the dynamic pricing and market pricing info will pay for itself in spades. The gap management and other stuff is icing on the cake.
