Calendar Import/Export - Airbnb guide

Our Channel Management feature is extremely powerful and can greatly simplify your channel advertising. Learn how it works by reading our Channel Management overview article.  A core part of our Channel Management is the Calendar Import/Export process which keeps your OwnerRez calendar in sync with channel calendars.

This article provides a walk-through guide for configuring calendar import/export for Airbnb.  You need a calendar import and export for Airbnb, so make sure to configure both.

Importing calendar from Airbnb

Log in to Airbnb, go to the Host menu and then click the Listings option in the menu.

In the list of properties, find the property you want to work on and click the "..." menu on the far right (under the Gear column) and select the "Go to calendar" option.

Click the "Availability" option.

Scroll down to the Sync calendars section and click the "Export Calendar" link.

In the resulting window that opens, copy the URL so that you can use it in OwnerRez in the next step.

In OwnerRez, open the same property and go to the Calendars tab.  Under the Import tab, click Import Calendar and paste in the same URL that you copied from Airbnb above.  By default the Listing Site and Name fields should fill in as Airbnb.  Click Save at the bottom to finish.

If you have any questions about the other settings on the calendar import page, read our general overview on configuring calendar imports or consult the Common Issues & Questions support article.

Exporting calendar to Airbnb

Log in to Airbnb, go to the Host menu and then click the Listings option in the menu.

Click on a property to drill in.

Click the Availability top menu.

At the bottom, under Sync calendars, click Import Calendar:

In the resulting window that opens, type in "OwnerRez iCal" in the Name Your Calendar box.

The top Calendar Address URL box needs to be filled in with a calendar export link from OwnerRez.  To get that link, do the following...

In a new browser tab, while leaving open the current window, going into OwnerRez and go to Settings > Channels > Calendar Import/Export and click the Export tab.  A list of your OwnerRez properties will show with an export link next to each one.

Find the property you are currently working on and copy the export link for that property.  Go back to the Airbnb window and paste the export link from OwnerRez into the Calendar URL box.  Then click Import Calendar to save and finish.

If you have any questions about calendar exporting, read our general overview on configuring calendar exports or consult the Common Issues & Questions support article.
