I see there is a toggle for same-day bookings.. is either off or on..

the problem is I would like to take a booking the same-day but only up till 11 am that same day. i of course logisticaly can not take a same-day booking for 5pm for the same day. i am a one-man operation and io schedule my day around my guest arrivals.. then go do my errands. any way this can be a function? cut off same-day bookings at 11am?

I know it is possible i had this function in a previous C manager.

could this be easily implemented?

Regards,

Roman

Hi Roman,

There would be some technical issues to overcome to make this sort of thing work long-term, we have plans to update the booking.com API which should help in some capacity, but the main issue is that OwnerRezs' underlying structure only supports down to the day resolution times. The good news is that Booking.com does appear to have support for hourly resolution times.

Essentially while possible it would require some restructuring on our part, in any case definitely pass the URL of this page to any partners or colleagues you do have to get that vote count up!

Hey Caleb, I may be misspeaking here, but I don't see the original post mentioning anything about Booking.com. 

However, adding a time cutoff for same-day bookings for direct bookings certainly gets my vote!

Hi Alece,

You're not misspeaking at all. The mentioning of booking.com was included as booking.com would be the main point of contention for this change to occur. Apologies for any confusion!
