General Help and Questions » How to embed custom fields into Hosted Website ?

Unfortunately, you cannot - custom fields don't work in the website fields, as you discovered. You'll need to embed all the videos on a special custom page: https://www.ownerreservations.com/…

Feature Requests » VRBO Native Messaging in OwnerRez via API integration

I should mention that, if you are using direct security deposits and making your guests sign our Agreements as we recommend, then in a sense you are independent of the channels. Yes, it is possib…

Feature Requests » Ability to have one channel be instant book and air b&b not be

Well, that is the requirement that Airbnb imposed on us, in order to allow us to do Request-to-Book at all.  Their system, their rules I guess. Are you sure that other systems allow RTB in Airbnb…

Feature Requests » Integration with Marriott Homes and Villas

We've actually met with them, but at present, they're oriented towards very large operations (hundreds or thousands of properties under one management), which isn't the bulk of OwnerRez clients.  Thi…

Feature Requests » Auto Daily changes to listing to keep it "fresh" on ABNB and VRBO
