I have VRBO API and exactly what I fill out in my property description in OR gets published to VRBO. However I want more details (ex "see my other VRBO listing #...) to be in the VRBO description, but not on my website that is hosted by OR. I can't simply go into VRBO and edit just the description there because once I have the API in place it does not allow it, I can only edit in OR which gets pushed to VRBO but also my website. Can we implement a way to separate these?

Not all property fields are used the same way by all the channels. You may find a way to accomplish what you want via this table:

I want a place to put it in OR, that doesnt show up on my website, and only shows up on VRBO...according to the table I dont see that...? It appears everything in OR shows up on the website, unless I'm mistaken?

Most of the fields are shared. We have a todo list item to allow you to create different field versions for different channels vs the hosted website, but no ETA on that yet.

The Location Description and Other Activities fields currently go to Vrbo but not the hosted website -- you could put the information in there.

I have a need to put a warning on my Vrbo listing... Because scammers are rampant on Facebook... Vrbo listings are getting stolen by scammers using them on facebook... and people are getting scammed by communicating only via facebook.  The only way I have protected guests from this, is to put special text in the Headline and Description on Vrbo. Vrbo will not let me put a text or watermark on photos. I really need to be able to edit these separately from the OR website.

 

***You MUST message me via VRBO to confirm your booking for this VRBO listing. My calendar is up to date.*** I DO NOT USE a Property Manager. And I DO NOT USE this VRBO link on Facebook.
