Sync on demand

I would love a "Sync calendars now" button maybe under the Tools tab. Quick and easy to find. Sometimes I just need to know a transaction has been added or cancelled right away.
Thanks!

That actually exists already, though it's a bit buried. Go to the property > calendar import > click the calendar import (VRBO or Air) and then click the Sync Now button. To be clear, this is only for pulling stuff INTO OwnerRez, not pushing out to other sites.

I like the idea of having a general Tools > Sync Everything is pretty cool. Good idea. 👍 That might frustrate our engineer team though, lol

Yes I have found the buried tool occasionally, but can never find it when I really want to. Usually because I'm in a hurry, that would be why I'm needing a quick sync : ) . Thanks

Re: Sync on demand

Paul, is there any way to push reservations to other sites? I added a reservation today thru OR and before it synced with VRBO, I got a reservation request for the dates.

I ended up going to VRBO, cutting my calendar sync link, pasting it again, and clicking 'save.' Did the job, but it would be nice if it could be easier/more automatic.

Only if we have an API/partner integration with the channel - and we do for several. Our API integration for VRBO is coming out soon. We have a pilot group of users in place that we're starting testing with right now. When that's done, the availability will push to VRBO immediately as soon as bookings occur in OR. That already happens with Booking.com, TripAdvisor and CanadaStays.

only if you have 5 or more properties for TA and VRBO, correct?

Re: Sync on demand

Yes, although there are users who have whined and fussed enough and gotten VRBO to put them in PM mode even with 2 or 3 properties. That's rare though, so don't count on it. For users with less than 5 properties, we're continuing to expand our Channel Bridge options so that you can push/pull content quickly. We just released an Airbnb rate push for that and VRBO rate push will be coming soon. Content (photos, amenities) are coming and some other things.

Re: Sync on demand

Thanks, I am not so concerned about content/photos, mostly rates.

Booking.com API has not synced in 19 hours even though changes have been made. How do I get it to sync now.
