Modern vacation rental managers are always on the go. Your calendar needs to keep up!
Managing your vacation rental across many channels and listing sites can be chaotic sometimes. Often, owners and managers need more information from their vacation rental calendar software than only seeing check-in and check-out dates. Our calendars nowadays tell us more than just our availability.
To get the most out of our calendar software tools, they need to tell us who our guests are and where they booked.
OneRooftop’s multi-property calendar view just got a huge makeover and will tell you more of what you need to know.
A Modern Availability Calendar for Vacation Rental Management
In your OneRooftop admin you’re able to see all your properties at once. In our platform as a whole, this is the most visited page by a long shot. You can now take advantage of our latest calendar tools.
1. View iCal source
You’re syncing your calendars across multiple channels. But wait — was the booking from TripAdvisor, HomeAway or your own website? See Where your guests booked now with just one log in.
2. See Guest Info
If a guest booked through your vacation rental’s website then you can get a sneak peak of their reservation directly from your availability calendar.
Click on an iCal link to see more details about your reservation, including the guest’s name, the calendar source, and further notes about the guest. Please note: Some listing sites do not pass this information in iCals. We know, it’s a bummer.
3. Organize Your Availability Calendar with Property Categories
When a guest calls in sometimes they’ll ask for a specific town, neighborhood, or a home with unique feature (like vacation rentals with hot tubs, waterfront views, or ski lift access). With OneRooftop’s new calendar tool you can assign tags to your property settings and then filter through your list based on search criteria.
Learn how you can add custom categories to your property settings in the OneRooftop admin
4. Add Reservations
The best part about your vacation rental website builder is that you can start taking direct bookings. No more awkward dragging tools when a guest calls in to book. Just see what’s open and click on the date. You can also get a real-time quote generated.
5. Finally a Calendar View that Doesn’t Hurt Your Eyes
Scroll left and right on OneRooftop’s calendar tape and keep all your ducks in a row! This calendar tape view makes looking at multiple properties much more pleasant. You can even access your availability calendar from a mobile device.
