Calendar Import

Calendar Import updates your OwnerRez calendar with bookings created in a listing site. On import, this will create a blocked-off time or booking in OwnerRez, depending upon the amount of information available in the iCal feed from the listing site.

To create a calendar import, go to a property page (under Properties) and go to the Calendar Import section for the property. Click Import Calendar to add a new calendar import, and enter the Calendar Export URL from the listing site:

When you create the import for the first time, it'll do an initial pull of items from the calendar, then automatically update every few hours. You can view the last status in the log under the calendar import.

Currently, only Airbnb provides enough information in their iCal feeds for us to create bookings. If you want bookings with guest info and charges from other sites, you'll need to add that information by hand. For other feeds, go into the blocked off time and use the new "Convert to Booking" button to convert the block off to a booking.
