Best way to start a new week is to catch up with the forum news for the past seven days. Here are some helpful conversations for you:

  1. How do quality and choice of pictures have an effect on guests decision about reservation? Share your experience with other partners.
  2. How to set a booking window? Find that out in this post
  3. Do you know how to set maximum occupancy? If so, feel free to let other partners know here
  4. What’s the best way to avoid a wrong invoice? Here are suggestions from other partners on the best practice.

A double congratulations to Leandri for taking the #1 position on the leaderboard for another week and for reaching level 7, what a milestone!

Thanks to the feedback received from our top contributors, our second piece from the Forum 101 series is live and is going to help you to craft a top-notch profile description.

Stay tuned as we roll out more!

and - The best way to get quality feedback is to comment here ? maybe..

Do I get points for solving the 'maximum occupancy' problem ?

Finding 'Bugs' is much less annoying, if you can report them, instead of getting angry
- You feel like you are helping out and in a small way helping to make things better.
( even if it takes months to get fixed. )

What if nobody else has the same 'Problem'
- then it's not really a big problem and may never get fixed.
I will list my problems here - to see how 'common' they are - and hope they get fixed.
I will also try - direct feedback to booking.com, and see if that works.

Problem #1 & 2:
You can't edit your address, even if you made a mistake, after you setup your account...
Map Location... Google knows best, most of the time... ( but not always. )

Problem #3:
" Derived Pricing " ( 1 Booking Max - up to 6 people ) - You 'must' select this when you setup...
- or call customer support, to have them edit.

I have created a duplicate listing to be able to get some features that I did not get when I fist setup the account, like 'Derived Pricing'... ( Both listings are the same property, just with different settings. )

It would be great if I could...

- Transfer these 'new' settings to my original property listing...

If for what ever technical reasons, this was not possible, then...

- Transfer my 'Reviews' / Booking History etc from my primary listing to my 'new' listing ?
that now has 'Derived Pricing'...


Would anybody else wish there was a feature to test out a 'new' listing...
and be able to 'preview it' - on the site, but this not to be 'public' yet.

Or is everyoe else just happy with the way it works right now ?
