This is already possible, via several different methods:

1. You can set a specific Booking Window in the API Settings for each individual channel, which will override your Property Rules settings, but won't affect direct bookings.

2. You can set a Channel Blackout, which is basically a block that's only on one channel.

I would love to be able to set my advance booking windows so that guests who book directly with us get "first dibs" on popular dates.  Ideally, we could set different booking windows for different OTAs, so that a disfavored one could be limited to last-minute guests as an example.

I think this would incentivize direct bookings, as anyone who wants the same dates next year needs to book directly.
