I keep running into folks who struggle to add an ical link to their calendar. Some people don't use a calendar at all. Would be nice if OR could host all ical links as a url so that folks who need to see something such as a name of guest can see that.

My specific case is another owner who gets payments from vrbo/airbnb and needs to see the calendar to make sure nothing gets missed.

For your specific case Rich, the best solution would be to grant Portal Access to that owner. Then they can see the main OwnerRez bookings screen and all their bookings in one place. But that requires the Property Management module. Are you managing the property for them? If so, it might be worthwhile.

We've had this hosted-custom-calendar feature requested before, but I'm concerned there may be some security issues with that, particularly if we're including detailed personal information like the name of a guest.

Hi Rich,

OR's "Hosted Widget link" can be shared by URL, but it does not show any details of the booking (like the guest's name). Not sure it that will help you in this situation.

In my case my sister in law (part owner of a condo) wants to see details that help her associate payments from vrbo/airbnb to her checking acct with a particular stay. I don't really need a full blown portal, just a link that shares enough info.

Hopefully OR will add an ability to create a custom report some day and then I can just email her a weekly report that lists all stays within a time period, that's all she needs.

Rich,

Wouldn't the current Reports > Detail Reports > Bookings report do the trick? It can be configured per property and per date range.
