That is what our API connections are for:

So, there isn't any need to automate Channel Bridge - if you want that data automatically, set up API connections, which can get just about all of it for you on their own once they're configured.

If there was a way to automatically integrate the channel bridge instead of having to use the Google extension manually every time a Booking comes in, that would be wonderful. Other property management softwares like your Porter already have this automatic feature integrated and is it is very convenient for users and truly goes a step ahead and making things automated.

We are also having problems with Channel Bridge.  We have had to run channel bridge manually every month for a long time to catch all of the financial information.  We do have the airbnb api setup.  Is there a way for OR to automatically collect all of the financial data without us having to run channel bridge.

We have also had issues with guests who extend through Airbnb.  It appears that OR is not picking up the new income generated from a booking extension.  Last month, we had a guest extend 4 times and we had to run channel bridge by hand three times before all the income appeared in owner rez.  

This seems like it could be automated somehow.  Help.
